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.

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

November 2019

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

November 2019

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.

July 2019

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.

July 2019

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.

May 2019

November 2018

This house is the best, breathtakingly beautiful

November 2018

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.

November 2018

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

July 2018

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.

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

May 2018

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

February 2018

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.

October 2017

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!!

October 2017

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.

September 2017

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.

August 2017

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.

July 2017

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!

June 2017

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 !

October 2016

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!

July 2016

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!
