As always thoroughly enjoyed our week at Cuilan and hope to return in the future.

A stunning property - inside and out. So much to do right on the doorstep. A pleasure though to just sit and unwind taking in the breathtaking views all around.

Beautiful house in a stunning location, crabbing from the end of the garden. Go and see Bob for kayaks and paddle boards.

Just a special place

We had the most amazing holiday in this stunning house. The view is second to none and the facilities in the house are superb, also having the paddle board and kayak hire at the bottom of the garden just couldn't have been better. Highly recommend this beautiful house for the best holiday.

A lovely house in a great location.

If you like space, tranquil settings to share with family or friends with the feeling of luxury, getting away from the hum drum this is a beautiful place to be to recharge and reconnect.

Our second visit to this very comfortable house. Perfect for a family holiday with plenty of space for adults and children to enjoy themselves, or just escape! Stunning location close to beautiful beaches, as well as countryside walks.

This cottage is ideal for large families/groups as the rooms are generously sized. It is very comfortably furnished to a very high standard giving it a lovely homely feel. It’s location on the waters edge gives stunning uninterrupted views to enjoy from the cottage, patio or gardens. Ample space in the driveway for several cars. We would definitely consider returning.

When I look for a house to rent, I am keen to see a dining table with plenty of room and comfortable chairs with backs. We cannot have a sociable evening eating a nice meal and chatting on a table with benches. We loved that there was table with good chairs in the kitchen making the most of the view as well as a large dining table in the dining room. I look for comfortable chairs and a table outside to relax with a G and T. This house had several types of chairs to choose from outside and cushions were available. A gas barbecue is the best as it is easier to clean. We like zip and link beds as they provide lots of room when made up as a full bed.

Stunning property, location is stunning too, property very clean, the owners have thought about everything u might need, child friendly aswell, we’ve stayed at a lot of holiday cottages, this ones got to be one of the best, will definitely but returning

What a wonderful place! The location is superb and the house was just perfect for our gathering of friends. It was warm and comfortable and well equipped. As we were blessed with glorious weather we were able to have a lot of our meals outside on the terrace and enjoy the wonderful view. Such a peaceful spot. Thank you for allowing us to share it.

Cuilan is an absolutely stunning property and the website photographs show how wonderful it is but on arrival you realize how big and spacious the place is. We had a very memorable holiday with our family there.

We absolutely love this house and have stayed several times. Everything is provided for and there is plenty of equipment to cater for all. My children love ‘going down the trapdoor’ to the games room and we all have a fantastic, relaxing stay. The views are incredible and sitting at the breakfast table or having coffee in the conservatory is an absolute joy.

Thank you so much for letting us know what an enjoyable time you had once again at Cuilan. It sounds as if your children had such fun! The location is truly stunning and we're looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

A beautiful house in a stunning location. Very comfortable and very well equipped! We had a fantastic time!

An absolutely beautiful property in a stunning location which is ideal for families who want to holiday together. There is plenty of space for adults and children to spend time at the house without feeling on top of each other - the lounge, kitchen, games room, conservatory and dining room mean that everyone has space to do what they want to do. We have visited twice in winter and it's a warm and relaxing environment to retreat to after a cold walk. You could have a holiday at this house without ever having to leave it! We hope to return soon.

Cuilan was the perfect base for a family gathering. We all thoroughly enjoyed the property and area and would certainly recommend this home. The views from the property are amazing and would hope to be able to revisit. Many thanks.

This is the most wonderful spot, the most perfect house and we all absolutely love it!

Another absolutely brilliant stay. The location is superb, able to totally relax away from the bustle of everyday life.

Cuilan exceeded our expectations - the photos from the website don't do it justice! Really comfortable house with a gorgeous view, acres of space and plenty to keep kids occupied. The garden was lovely too and the stony beach below the house was nice for swims when the tide was high. Was also nice to discover that we could hire kayaks/small motor boats from the little hut on the beach. Would rate Cuilan 6 stars if I could.

Stunning location, perfect for a relaxing holiday anytime of the year.

Lovely house. Wonderful views. Booking again for 2022.

Thank you to the team (admin and house) that made our holiday possible in difficult circumstances due to Covid. It was our third visit to the Cottage and we really felt settled in and enjoyed ourselves despite restrictions. At times like this the location is paramount.

Beautiful house in a fantastic location, perfect for a family break.

The perfect house for our family reunion. Excellent location with easy access to local beaches and countryside.

We would all definitely stay here again! Couldn’t of ask for somewhere, anymore perfect to spend our week off

Cuilan is a lovely house in the most amazing location, it has everything you could possibly want for the perfect family holiday. Please don't tell anyone else though, it's already fully booked, so we can't come again this year.

Another wonderful holiday at Cuilan. We love having our breaks in this beautiful home. A stunning property in the perfect setting.

The ideal out of the way retreat for families .

The property exceeded my expectations. Great facilities. Amazing view. Lovely pub in local village too. Would love to return

Superb house and setting, easily found - excellent value for money.

The best house we've stayed in and we've stayed in quite a few! Luxurious yet comfortable, Cuilan is a fabulous place for a friends' weekend retreat. The furnishings are top notch and the kitchen is very well-equipped for a large group. The icing on the cake is that the views are stunning!

A very comfortable stay well equipped and in a beautiful quiet location

It was very relaxing and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We all loved the garden especially the variety of hydrangeas in the front. Watching the birds and the landscape was especially enjoyable. Also learning about the surrounding area and the history, the information in Cuilan was excellent. Please thank your team that look after Cuilan.


We all had a wonderful family holiday at Cuilan. The property was exactly as we had hoped, if not better. After years of renting holiday cottages in Cornwall, we all agreed this was the best house we have stayed in. It was perfect for our family get-together. A wonderful place to make happy memories.

A spectacular location so peaceful and quiet with only the ocassional sound of a motorboat. Lovely garden for children to run around. A beautiful part of Cornwall with lovely beaches villages and gardens. Coastal path nearby with numerous walking trails. The best place I have stayed in cornwall.

Despite the great pictures, they don't do full justice to either the property or the setting - you really have to be there to fully appreciate it.

We have just returned from our weeks holiday at Cuilan.....what a beautiful property. Excellent accommodation and stunning views. We really have been spoilt now! Hope to return next year. Thank you

Fantastic Holiday in a stunning location! Beautiful attention to detail and everything you could possibly need to enjoy your holiday.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay x

Absolutely beautiful holiday home in a stunning location. We always love staying at Cuilan. We had a fabulous holiday!

A fantastic week in this beautiful house and tranquil location.

We all loved everything about 'Cuilan' and are looking forward to another visit sometime. Situated in a fantastic place with a view to die for. So relaxing.

An amazing kitchen and everything provided - we wanted for nothing.

Lovely comfortable beds and pillows.

Thank you,

An amazing property with fantastic views. Very spacious and luxurious. We are already looking at when we can book again, but for longer next time.

Beautiful place, relaxing and perfect getaway.

A well appointed, spacious property in a lovely location with great views. Perfect for a large family get together

We enjoyed a fantastic family Christmas at Cuilan. The house and location are beautiful and the facilities are outstanding. Perfect for a family celebration.

This house is the best, breathtakingly beautiful

I can’t recommend this property enough, absolutely stunning. From the quality of the furnishings, decor, quality of the appliances to the cleanliness, layout and location. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you also to the housekeeping team who answered all my questions before arrival and made our stay completely relaxing and enjoyable.

This house is outstanding. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all luxurious. The views from the front bedrooms and conservatory are just beautiful. You can waste hours just watching the boats. There is a lovely 25 min walk to the village pub where you can have a welcome drink and lovely home cooked meal. Would love to return.

We're so glad you enjoyed this lovely house - the view of the water can be mesmerising, there is always something new to see. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Support

If you want a break away from everything this is the perfect place to be. None of us wanted to leave, Every thing you could ever need is here in the house, get Tesco to deliver your shopping and you can just sit back and enjoy the most stunning view ever

Outstanding property/location. Luxury & tranquillity for a week. Plenty of things to watch on the river - people, boats & wildlife if you don't feel like (or are unable) to get out & about everyday.

Mrs N - Bristol July 2018

A lovely house in a beautiful location - perfect for a family holiday or a gathering of friends.

Fabulous house in a beautiful setting. We have stayed in a lot of holiday homes and this is the best by far. Thank you.

A beautiful home in a fantastic setting. Ideal for a large family get together, as we had family from South Africa, and Devon meeting up. We would come to this property again.

The cottage was wonderful!! We were 3 families staying here on holiday and it was superb!! Highly recommend this 1st class property for your holiday!!

Cuilan is the most beautiful house and location. The whole family had a fantastic holiday and no one wanted to come home. We will definitely return.

The fabulous views across the river from most parts of the house plus the sheer comfort of the bedrooms and bathrooms combined with the generous amount of space made Cuilan perfect for our group. The games room is the icing on the cake and perfect for those rainy days. The interior seemed rather like a newly built house. Everything beautifully designed and in tip-top, pristine condition. We had a really excellent family gathering which would be hard to better anywhere.

We couldn´t have asked for anything more in a home to spend our holiday. We had a lovely surprise when we arrived to see the property had recently been refurbished. We had 3 families staying in the property with children ranging from 18 months to 10 years, it surpassed our expectations in catering for all these different age ranges, room distributions, games room, climbing frame and the hill in the garden which they rolled down numerous times on a daily basis. The cleaniness of the house was impeccable and the quality of all the linen and towels noted and appreciated. The fact that you could walk down from the garden to the little harbour was priceless and a great help to keep all the children entertained with safety not being an issue. I am extremely happy with the service I got from Classic Cottages, the procedure and payment scheme was very clear and simple to follow. The instructions for entering and leaving the property, also very clear. We were very very happy with with property we rented and will be booking again.

Absolutely fantastic house in a superb position, we have rented large houses every year for a family get togethers all over Italy, Spain, UK and Ireland and this house is without doubt the best we have ever had. The refurbishment was tastefully done throughout the house and with what would appear to be little consideration for cost. The house coupled with the glorious weather made for one of our best family holidays ever. We will be back!

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Cuilan, the house has been beautifully furnished and it's location is simply jaw dropping. Only five minutes drive to some of the most unspoilt beaches in Cornwall and Portscatho had pretty much everything we needed to top up the larder. The garden provided endless fun for the children. We'll definitely be visiting again next year and probably every year after that !

We couldn't recommend Cuilan enough, it's a beautiful holiday home and we fell in love with it the moment we arrived. We'll be back!

There is always something to see on the Percuil. My ninety year old stepfather spent some restful times watching other people just messing about in boats!
