An immaculately clean and well equipped cottage and a great location. Would recommend and definitely return!

What a gem of a cottage! In a quiet, secluded setting yet with easy access to A30 and thus the rest of Cornwall, this property is furnished, decorated and maintained to a very high standard. The owners are very welcoming and happy to advise but also discreet in their presence. We cannot recommend this highly enough!

The property was immaculate, it was so fresh and clean we actually thought we were the first guests to stay in it! The owners were charming, helpful and left us a very generous welcome pack full of Cornish goodies. We found the cottage comfortable and well equipped. Both bedrooms have en suites, a big thumbs up for that. It is tucked away in a valley and overlooks the owners livestock, our grandson thought this was wonderful and we greeted them all daily. We had a wonderful stay at Tin Stream Cottage.

Fantastic cottage in a great area with good access to the Lizard, the Minack Theatre, Cape Cornwall and lots of beautiful beaches. It was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed. The owners were particularly friendly and helpful. We would definitely return !

I really can’t fault this cottage.

Just to say the owners, who lived next door were wonderful. They were helpful when needed and even bought us loads of bottled water when the local supply went down.

Cottage is in a lovely valley where you feel away from all the hustle and bustle, but so convenient to tour around Cornwall.

The most wonderful cottage a real home from home. The cottage was so comfortable and clean every detail was thought of and the owners couldn’t have been more welcoming and accommodating. I could have stayed another week, rain or shine this cottage is a true little gem!

We enjoyed a fantastic week at Tin Stream Cottage in August. It is one of the best cottage we have stayed in - so comfortable and clean. Cottage is in its own little valley which is very peaceful and the elevated patio gives you a great view of the local wildlife as well as the chickens and geese! Although the car parks are busy as you would expect for August, the local beaches weren’t crowded if you avoid hotspots like St Ives and Newquay. Godrevy is a particular favourite with wide, sandy beaches. Would also recommend the surf school at Portreath where the children enjoyed a lesson with the excellent instructor. Annie and Steve are very kind and generous hosts - it was such a treat to have everything for a cream tea waiting for us after a long journey. We look forward to visiting again soon.

Tin Stream Cottage is in a perfect location for exploring Cornwall. The owners have thought of everything with great attention to detail, it is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. We stayed for a week & really didn't want to leave!

We had a lovely family holiday. Cottage is perfectly located half way between Newquay and St Ives with good access to main roads (via a very narrow road!) . Overall couldn’t fault the cottage itself and owners who live next door are very friendly but not intrusive. Would love to return .

I can't praise Tin Stream Cottage or its lovely owners, Annie and Steve, enough. Just as all the other reviews have stated, the cottage is beautiful, spotlessly clean, spacious, very well equipped and has wonderful views out over a beautifully green, peaceful valley. We particularly appreciated the large terrace off the kitchen and enjoyed many BBQs looking out over the fields. Annie and Steve went out of their way to make sure we had a brilliant holiday, without ever being intrusive - from the incredibly generous welcome pack of Cornish fare that greeted us on arrival to the helpful recommendations Annie gave me for restaurants and local outings (she even gave me a list of restaurants, cafes and beach bars that her daughter had put together for young guests and they were all great). It was the perfect size for our party of two couples, one of whom was five months pregnant and really grateful for the large comfortable bed and huge ensuite bathroom with waterfall shower and an extremely generous bath! We also appreciated all the additional thoughtful touches, such as the provision of a week's supply of toilet paper and dishwasher tablets - no other holiday home I've stayed in has been so generously stocked. The location is perfect for exploring much of Cornwall, and you can get to the A30 quickly, while also being wonderfully peaceful and quiet, as though you're in the depths of the countryside. I will really miss waking up to the view of the cows, chickens and geese each morning. We're planning our return already and hope to make this an annual holiday.

Tin Stream Cottage is a beautiful cottage situated in a peaceful valley, surrounded by trees and wildlife, whilst retaining easy access to transport links - the best of both worlds. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay a success, and we felt at home as soon as we opened the front door. We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years, but we both agreed this was the best yet. Annie and Steve are the perfect hosts, friendly and welcoming, on hand if any help is needed, whilst respecting the privacy of their guests. We are already planning to return next year.

We absolutely loved our stay at TIn Stream Cottage, this cottage is a gem. A very well thought out property with everything you need. From the moment you arrive you're welcomed by a lovely clean cottage. Every detail is thought about, from the kitchen equipment to the little touches like the goodies on arrival, toilet paper, hand wash, dishwasher tablets. Literally perfect!

Wonderful cottage. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Good location for visiting around Cornwall. Would definitely recommend.

A beautiful cottage, well equipped spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Very peaceful convenient location close to Redruth and some of the best beaches in Cornwall and other major attractions. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We have had a great holiday at this lovely cottage. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped and in a perfect location. We hope to return next year!

We had a perfect holiday at Tin Stream Cottage. We hadn't visited this area of Cornwall for a number of years and the location of the Cottage is very convenient for the north coast resorts and is also within reasonable distance of the south coast. The cottage is spotlessly clean and very comfortable with all possible needs catered for. It is very peaceful and there is a patio at the rear with excellent views of the valley. Annie and Steve, the owners, are a lovely couple - very welcoming and, as they live next door, are available to help if needed. The week went much too quickly and we really didn't want to come home. Would have no hesitation in recommending Tin Stream Cottage.

It is an absolutely perfect cottage with all things you need to feel comfortable.

Would recommend this property without reservation. Loads of character, great position and really everything you would want.

Lovely base for visiting the western half of Cornwall. Although close to Redruth, with the convenience of nearby supermarkets, the actual locations was was like being in the middle of the countryside miles form anywhere. Very high standard accommodation, comfortable, everything we needed. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Wish we had had longer stay and aim to come back in the future.

In a country where today, it seems everything is down to a price, rather than up to a standard, Steve and Annie's Tin Stream Cottage is a revelation! The quality to be found is such, that visitors will believe they are actually the very first to have crossed the threshold! Living as we do, at the other end of the country and with the afflictions of old age galloping over the horizon, it is a sadness that this may prove to be our Cornish swan-song and if that is indeed so, to revisit, as we have, our old haunts, then we could not possibly have chosen better. Fortunate to be in a position to do so, we at very short notice, actually extended our stay by a week, which was not at all a problem, either for Classic Cottages, or for the cottage's charming, unobtrusively attentive custodians. In a location that offers seclusion without isolation, Tin Stream Cottage is very fully equipped - unless you regard a toast rack as absolutely indispensable! - and the geothermal underfloor heating a pleasure - no more chilly nocturnal visits to the bathroom...A perfect cottage in a delightful setting. We would like to think we will return.

This is our third stay at Tin Stream cottage and we feel like we are coming home when we stay. Annie and Steve are the most welcoming and generous hosts, the welcome gifts have something for everyone to enjoy. The house is always spotlessly clean and so comfortable to be in. Even if the weather is rubbish it’s so cosy in front of the TV with the log burner going. The bathrooms are perfect, the beds are super comfy and the kitchen has everything we’ve ever needed. We’re looking forward to our next holiday in 2019!

A great all season cottage, perfect for when the sun is shining, but also warm and cosy with a brilliant woodburner for the colder days. Friendly and helpful hosts nearby if required, but discreet enough otherwise. Location allows easy access to most of Cornwall, but feels secluded nestled away in the valley. One of our favourites.

Tin Stream Cottage has the WOW Factor, very well equipped, beautifully decorated and very clean. Steve and Annie welcomed us, very friendly couple. The cottage was so comfortable, did not want to leave. Ideally situated for many attractions.

Beautifully kitted out and well maintained. Great hosts.

The cottage was everything we could have wished for for a fantastic relaxing holiday. The cleanliness and attention to detail were amazing, the owners are really lovely people and care about you enjoying your time there, even pooping down to see if everything was okay and then taking the time to wave us off as we left. I;m sure that this must be one of the best places to stay in Cornwall.

Fantastic cottage, a lovely friendly welcome on arrival everything about our stay was excellent

It's the best cottage we have stayed in to visit our family in Cornwall over the past 18 years. Very well equiped and a beautiful and peaceful location with scenic views up the valley. Very convenient for the north coast resorts and walks with excellent access to the main routes and local shops.

Spotlessly clean, very comfortable furniture, good quality appliances, a great design with two en-suites, perfect for two couples sharing; in fact one bathroom was bigger than our lounge at home! Owners very friendly, there if you wanted them but discreet if you did not. Great patio/decking for enjoying the late afternoon sun. A very nice pile of welcome goodies, all of Cornish origin; it would have taken some time in sourcing so many lovely things, so thank you for the effort. A great location for visiting all of South Cornwall's attractions without driving more than 30 miles to get there.

Fantastic cottage. Very warm welcome from Annie and Steve who had also left a lovely welcome pack. The cottage had everything and more and was easily the loveliest and most luxurious cottage we have ever stayed in. Will definitely return.

A beautiful cottage in a lovely valley location that has everything you could wish for, for a perfect holiday. Lovely comfy beds, an amazing bathroom, and a great kitchen space with a lovely view. We had a great stay there and and can't wait to go back. I am already missing the entertaining geese.

The cottage has been built to a very high standard and finished with great attention to detail by the owners, Steve and Annie. They are the most welcoming and delightful hosts you could wish to meet. The cottage is very comfortable and conveniently located close to the A30 reducing journey times to popular attractions in the county. The generous welcoming goodies were a lovely bonus and much appreciated. A stay here is highly recommended, you will not be disappointed.

We have just had a wonderful week at Tin Stream Cottage. It is a first class cottage with lovely views and everything in the cottage was as we hoped it would be. The treats on arrival were very much appreciated along with fantastic weather, which was an added bonus. Annie and Steve are a delightful couple and wonderful hosts. We hope to be able to return sometime in the future. The Baker Family, Torquay, Devon. (10/6/17-17/6/17)

We had the most fabulous weeks holiday at Tin Stream Cottage. Steve and Annie greeted us on our arrival to make sure our journey had been ok and that we had settled in. The cottage was in immaculate condition and really well thought out. The welcome goodies were a really lovely touch and a real treat! The cottage is set in a really lovely valley location with a lovely outlook but not far from the main road which enabled us to explore lots of Cornwall easily. Would highly recommend a stay at Tin Stream Cottage.

The owners are so lovely and welcoming, and we enjoyed our stay at Tin Stream Cottage so much that we will definitely be back!

Great cottage finished to a high spec, with excellent woodburner and amazingly comfy beds. It is conveniently located for exploring Cornwall, in a rural location but only a few minutes drive to the A30, and a large pub is within a short walk. The nearby owners are lovely and friendly, but unintrusive. Hoping to return here.

Lovely cottage in a good location. Very warm welcome from the owners. The cottage is very comfortable and has been finished to a very high standard. A great place to relax and unwind. Would happily recommend a stay here to others.
