Reskivers cottage is a lovely home from home for our family. This is a lovely welcoming and considered space for family time and relaxing.
Mr Weights October 2020
This cottage is one of the best we have stayed in having visited the South West coast now for nearly 30 years. The comfort (especially the bed) was outstanding and it was so warm and cosy. The aga kept the whole cottage toasty warm - we didn't even need to light the fire!!! The area is fabulous and the cottage is only a few miles from the coastal path. It has been 20 years since we were last in this area, and Mevagissey, Carne and Pendower Beach, Veryan (my favourite village) Goran Haven etc. are all still as beautiful as I remember them. It was a great getaway in these troubled times. Thank you.

Our family have loved making memories at Reskivers cottage. It feels like a home from home, such attention to detail and comfort. The perfect hideaway for a relaxing break in a beautiful part of Cornwall.
Mrs Hoare September 2020
Reskivers Cottage exceeded our expectations in comfort and facilities. It was exactly as described only better.
Mrs Jones September 2020
The space inside the cottage and the back garden. The decor and accessories were gorgeous and we appreciated the quality of all the household items. Different colour towels for each guest was a great touch, so no danger of using someone else's by mistake. Clear information booklet about the cottage and instructions for every machine were very helpful. There were some lovely thoughtful finishing touches which were also greatly appreciated.

We had a wonderful holiday at Reskivers.A perfect country cottage for three generations and in an excellent location for visiting many wonderful places on the Roseland with easy access to further afield. We loved St Mawes, Portscatho, Carne beach, Trebah, Charlestown and all the NT places. Fabulous safe garden for young children, so beautiful,quiet,relaxing and a sun trap for early evening G&Ts!! The Aga is wonderful for cooking and creates a lovely warm homely feel to this special place.The kitchen is superbly equipped, a chefs delight.Very high quality furnishings and fittings. Extremely comfortable beds and powerful showers.Its like you are staying in someone’s lovely home and not a holiday let. However I have to be honest and say we did experience a lapse in good housekeeping ,which spoilt our arrival somewhat, namely a badly mildew stained sheet, dust and a few dirty dining and kitchen items escaped someone’s eagle eye but not ours. We had a prompt polite response from the housekeeper. Just a little more attention to detail would have given Reskivers a resounding 10/10. Fabulous place xx Thank you to the owners for providing us with a delightful holiday destination.

Mrs Hughes July 2019
A wonderful cottage that provided everything our 3-generation family needed, even on the wet days. The 4 grandchildren, aged 1 to 7, loved the garden. And Grandma enjoyed experimenting with the Aga!

The garden was a delight,but we couldn't enjoy the bbq etc because of the weather. Much the best property we have stayed in,location good for beaches.

We're sorry that the weather didn't behave during your stay - hopefully the wood-burner in the cottage kept you toasty warm and you were able to cook up some tasty feasts with the Aga. Perhaps we can welcome you back when the weather is being a little kinder and you'll be able to fire up the barbecue and enjoy the fantastic outside space to its full advantage.

I feel I should point out that the parking restriction is not as bad as it would seem from the description. For information, the garage and parking space will take two Vauxhall Zafira Tourer 7 seaters easily. Reasonably competent drivers will have no problems.

We really appreciate you letting us know your thoughts about the parking, and it's great to hear that you found it easy with your vehicles. We usually say that a small/medium sized car and a larger car will fit to the right of the cottage, and arrangements can be made for a third car (or larger second car) directly with the owner.

lovely atmosphere in and around the cottage
Mr Savage October 2018
We had a very enjoyable holiday in this very well-equipped and comfortable cottage, in a good location for access to the Fal estuary, south coast beaches and walks, and Gardens. Access to the parking area was awkward, primarily because of the semi-permanent presence of 2 or 3 neighbours' cars which made reversing tricky.

Thanks for taking the time to review Reskivers Cottage and we're delighted to hear that you found the cottage to be comfortable and well equipped. We're sorry that you found the parking a little tricky on occasion - there is parking for one small/medium car in the open doored garage and room for a larger vehicle behind. The neighbouring property to the right does have access rights over the drive and other cars may be parked in the area as well so a little manoeuvring may be required at times.

Good well located cottage in easy reach of many great beaches & attractions such as Eden, Heligan & many National Trust properties.
Mrs Cherry August 2018
The cottage was beautifully furnished, very well equipped, and a lovely garden for lazy evenings
Mr Cole March 2018
Lovely cottage, well located for travel to most Cornwall attractions.
Comfortable and very well equipped. The owners had thought of everything we needed for a relaxing break. The cottage was so nice it was a struggle to get some of the family to go out on some days.
Mr Hill June 2017
