Very welcoming couple. Lovely cosy cottage down a small country lane providing a lovely week of peace and quiet. Location is very good, close to many small villages.

September 2020

First class.

September 2020

Heartsease was more than expected, its a very well kept property in a fantastic setting, ideal for get away and peace and quiet, the owners greeting was very appreciated, cream tea and flowers, a nice touch. Would recomend to anyone looking for a get away from it all in this part of the country.

September 2020

Lovely well equipped cottage in a very quiet rural setting, the owners were delightful and extremely helpful, highly recommended

August 2020

Lovely, well appointed cosy little cottage in a beautiful, quiet position in a fantastic area. Nicky and George were great. Scones on arrival were a lovely surprise. Can’t wait to go back!

August 2020

Wonderful little cottage, tastefully decorated to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. We loved it! Perfectly situated for exploring the Roseland Peninsula and places like Polperro and Mevagissey. Wholeheartedly recommend!

August 2020

A fabulous stay with excellent facilities, the owners George & Nicky were lovely, available had we needed them, this was a gem of a place for us.

July 2020

Lovely cottage restoration in a lovely secluded garden and on a lovely largely unspoilt peninsula.

March 2020

You will want to go back time and again!

October 2019

This cottage is in a great location, easy to get from one coast to the other.

October 2019

Just a great homely peaceful cottage. We thought they didn't have a pen and then found one left in the property! Everything is thought of as if the owners lived there themselves, or at least tested the idea thoroughly.

Roads near the coast can be very narrow and not for nervous drivers. The weather is often damp, but this is all nothing to do with the cottage and can easily be planned around.

September 2019

It was very well equipped with everything thought of and how they got everything in is a miracle. The property was much smaller than we expected, in fact it was too small for comfort. It was also damp with a dehumidifier running constantly.

Thank you for your comments. Heartsease is a pretty little barn conversion sleeping two guests so we appreciate that space is at a bit of a premium - the owners have tried to make the cottage as comfortable as possible for their guests, making the most of the available space. The property is unlikely to have a damp course running through it so some condensation and a damp feeling to the air (particularly in the wet weather we've had recently) can occur on occasion. We've forwarded your comments to the owner for their attention moving forwards. Bryony, Customer Support

Beautiful stone built cottage nestling in its garden and close to the coastal path

August 2019

The cottage is very beautiful and cosy. The owners George and Nikki are delightful persons, absolutely very very kind. Tranquillity of the place and the surrondings are ver precious for a holiday. One of the best holidays spent here in Cornwall. My best compliments to the owners to keep high quality in their property and we want to thank them for all kindness showed. We hope to come back soon

July 2019

The best holiday we had in a long time very enjoyable thank you.

June 2019

This was our third visit to Heartsease in as many years. The cottage is delightful and set in a beautiful, peaceful garden. George and Nicky make us feel very welcome by their helpful friendliness. We will definitely be returning for another relaxing break in the future.

May 2019

A delightful, excellently maintained, cottage, situated on the Roseland peninsula - well located for cliff walking and for visiting the many attractions that are nearby. This year, we visited the National Trust Gardens at Glendurgan, near Falmouth, which were beautiful. The owners couldn't do more to provide a delightful, peaceful hideaway; a "five star" location ! We hope to return again, next year !

April 2019

A perfect location from which to take advantage of the best Cornish gardens, the Southwest Coastal path and the beautiful Roseland peninsula.

Reply from Classic Cottages

The local gardens are looking especially lovely at present thanks to a warm winter and our early Cornish spring - we're so pleased that you enjoyed exploring them and we hope you'll visit us again soon. Tanya, Customer Support

March 2019

An excellent small converted barn in a good location for exploring the Rosaland peninsular, perfect for a short holiday for two.

February 2019

This was our second stay at this lovely, peaceful, clean cottage and it was just as good as before. The location is good, the hosts friendly.

October 2018

This is a top quality cottage in a quiet location with a pretty garden area. It is equipped to a high standard and everything is clean. Walkers can access the coast path via a footpath from the cottage. The rest of the Roseland Peninsular is relatively easy to reach by car.

August 2018

Everything you may need was provided. A lovely touch were the fresh flowers in the cottage. There was a scrumptious cream tea provided on arrival and hand picked, home grown tomatoes and courgettes. Owners very welcoming and checked mid week to make sure we were ok.

June 2018

Heartsease is a superb cottage; well equipped and comfortable. Its setting is delightfully quiet. The owners, Nikki and George, are friendly and welcoming and easygoing. This holiday was our second visit to Heartsease: it certainly wont be our last.

June 2018

Thoroughly recommend this holiday home

April 2018

A real treat. Immaculate, comfortable and cosy.

March 2018

This has been our second visit to Heartsease and, having stayed in a number of holiday cottages, over the years, we rate this one as one of the best, in so many ways - a wonderful, relaxing, get-away-from-it-all, spot, only a short distance from the S W Coast Path. We're looking to return, again, next year ! Highly recommended.

September 2017

Heartsease is perfect for exploring the surrounding area. It's very comfortable, beautifully designed and set in the delightful garden of Blameys Barn.

August 2017

A lovely base for our wedding and mini-moon. We had a wonderful time on the beaches and exploring the coastal path. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating.

June 2017

The property was absolutely superb. It was so quiet and you had the feeling you were really out in the countryside. The garden was lovely with various places to sit and enjoy it. Everything about the house was very well designed. The fact that you could walk to the coast path in 10 minuets was a treat. The location of the property could not have been better.The only downside about the cottage being so nice is that it will become very popular. The owners were lovely people being very friendly but keeping their distance.

March 2017

One of our best holidays ever ! Whilst there is no sea view, as such, the coastal path, with access to Portloe etc, is minutes away. A wonderful quiet setting - close to the owners' property but the owners are friendly and very caring but not at all intrusive Our week at "Heartsease" exceeded our expectations in every way - heartily recommended and we, certainly, plan to return !

October 2016

Heartsease Cottage is a delightful, compact and cosy cottage that is beautifully equipped for two people. It has a rural setting but is very close to the South West Coast path and just a short walk to the pretty village of Portloe.

August 2016

Thank you both for a lovely welcome. Such a wonderful place to stay with delightful host that live on site. A pleasure to meet Nicky and George again this year.

July 2016

Heartsease is as it would suggest, quite beautiful and restful. Had an excellent break from the real world. Would recommend for a good rest.

June 2016

Heartsease does exactly what it says on the tin. Lovely location, lovely hosts, so clean and comfortable, all adds up to the perfect break.

April 2016

We had a very happy week at this cottage. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, and the location is ideal for the coastal footpath and for visiting the area - we came to visit the magnificent gardens nearby (eg Caerhays)

March 2016

If you are looking for peace and quiet, a lovely home from home, then look no further!

January 2016

We have stayed at this cottage on many occasions and it is like being at home. It is so cosy and the owners are very welcoming.
