Lovely cottage. Very clean and tidy. Winding garden area leading to pond. Owners very welcoming and friendly. Very quiet area as no mobile signal (unless you walk up into the middle of the field behind!).

Such a cosy cottage situated just two fields in from the coastpath. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful.

Heartsease has everything you need. Very quiet and peaceful with plenty of options for walking and days out. Came home completely refreshed and reinvigorated. I'll definitely be looking into going back next year.

Highly recommend this beautiful little cottage in a secluded location close to the coastal path.

We had a great holiday in Cornwall at Heartsease. Cottage was cosy and had everything we needed. We had good weather and were able to explore this part of Cornwall. Nicky and George were very helpful. Would definitely recommend and return!

Die Eigentümer sind außerordentlich freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns wie zuhause gefühlt. Auch den wundervollen Garten haben wir sehr genossen und wurden sogar reichlich mit Tomaten und Zucchini versorgt. In dem Cottage kann man sich sehr gut erholen, auch dank der ruhigen Lage. Es ist liebevoll und authentisch restauriert und eingerichtet. Das Cottage ist ein perfekter Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen auf dem nahegelegenen Coastal Path und für Erkundungen des Roselands. Viele weitere bemerkenswerte Sehenswürdigkeiten sind schnell erreichbar. Diesen Urlaub werden wir immer in allerbester Erinnerung behalten. Vielen Dank dafür! Rita und Reimund aus Deutschland

Heartsease is excellently places for coastal runs and walks, visits to beaches, towns attractions etc. The owners are lovely and always helpful, we have stayed 3 times at Heartsease and would recommend it highly.

If you seek peace and a place to leave the busy World behind you this is the cottage for you

lovely property and really nice hosts who didn't impose on your time unless you needed their help or advice.

This was our fourth stay at Heartsease, so you can tell that we like it a lot. Our first time in the summer, so we were able to fully use the beautiful garden which has plenty of shade for hot days. Our hosts: Nicky & George, were most hospitable.

Heartease is exactly what the name implies; a lovely quiet retreat in a beautiful setting. We were fortunate to spend three weeks and found that the property had everything a couple requires for a comfortable stay, along with an extensive and beautiful garden that is perfect to while away an hour or two. The location is ideal for walking the coastal paths and exploring the Roseland and beyond. However, what makes Heartsease so special are the wonderful hosts who make you feel thoroughly at home. Thank you once again to George and Nicky for helping to make our stay so special.

We have never stayed at a property as clean and tidy as this one, We felt at home straight away. This property is exactly as advertised which is a rare thing in this day and age.

Wonderful, peaceful holiday

Absolutely wonderful, exceptionally clean and equipped. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay as fantastic as possible. Prime location for cliff top walks. Beautiful garden to enjoy.

Heartsease is a delight. Beautifully appointed, lovely location, Cornwall at its best. Thank you so much to our lovely helpful and friendly cottage owners.

This is the perfect cottage for those in need of peace and relaxation. The coastal path is just three fields away with Heligan, Caerhays, Trewithen and Tregrehan not far away for those who like gardens at their best in early spring (magnolias and camellias).

We had a lovely time at Heartsease and were very impressed with the standard of the cottage. It was clear the owners had paid a great deal of time ensuring it catered for everything you might need whilst away. Thank you George and Nicky.

extremely nice owners, very helpful when we spoke and nothing is ever too much trouble. we have booked again for the 3rd year running.

Thank you so much to George and Nicky. Your attention to detail, thoughtfulness and consideration for the comfort of guests staying at your beautiful barn was outstanding. It made our week in Cornwall very comfortable, relaxing and stress-free; THANK YOU!

We had a fabulous stay at Heartsease. The property is extremely comfortable and the proximity to the sea is brilliant! The bed is amazing. Washer and dryer very much appreciated. The sea is a 5 min walk awayzWe hope to return in the future.

A cosy and comfortable cottage for two in idyllic surroundings. You will be sure of a warm welcome.

Very cosy cottage which was very clean and well maintained. Hosts helpful and friendly.

This was our third stay at Heartsease, it is a delightful cottage to which we hope to return. The location is excellent for walkers, with miles of coastal and river path walking from the doorstep or a short drive away. The cottage is clean, quiet, warm and the owners are always helpful whilst being unobtrusive.

A gem of a cottage in a hidden corner of Cornwall away from the maddening crowds. A perfect way to unwind, relax and refresh the mind and body.

Beautiful, quiet location. Wonderful hosts and a very welcome cream tea! It has everything you need and more.

Extremely well maintained and equipped converted barn/cottage in an ideal location to enjoy the beautiful coastal walks of the Roseland Peninsula.

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.

First class.

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.

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

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!

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!

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.

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

You will want to go back time and again!

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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 !

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thoroughly recommend this holiday home

A real treat. Immaculate, comfortable and cosy.

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.

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

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.

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.

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 !

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.

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.

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

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

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)

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

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.
