Lovely warm, cosy, extremely clean cottage. Very comfortable bed too!

Lots of parking and in a lovely area for travelling South Cornwall. We had a very restful stay and would look to return should we be staying in the area in future.

For others like me who wasn’t sure from the details if there was a freezer - yes a lovely big fridge freezer in the property.

Just had our 3rd trip to Cowhouse Cottage. The cottage is so clean and the owners very friendly. As usual we felt so much at home there ??

Such a lovely cosy and well equipped cottage in a great location for getting out and about, but very comfortable if you just want to stay in and relax. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and respond very quickly to any queries. We love this place!

Really enjoyed the cottage. Very comfortable, calming and clean. Would recommend to others.

Our 4th time at this cottage which is ideal for seeing our family in St Agnes. We will be back in the near future. Highly recommended.

We have just returned from a fabulous week staying in Cowhouse Cottage. The property was beautifully presented, warm, comfortable, clean and exceedingly well equipped. From the minute we entered the cottage we felt at home and knew we were really going to enjoy our stay and relax which we did, thoroughly! The owners, John and Anne, have obviously worked exceedingly hard to present such a lovely property for their guests to enjoy and we would certainly love to return. The property is also perfectly situated for exploring the many delightful places this area of Cornwall has to offer. We would certainly recommend.

Delicious pasties in Porthleven …don’t try eating out on aMonday evening!

Without doubt Cowshed Cottage is the best thought through and kitted out property we have ever stayed in. It's very central for exploring the South West and all in all we absolutely loved our stay there.

An excellent place to stay. Warm, comfortable and easy to access all parts of Cornwall. This is our third visit and we’ll be back in the Summer.

Comfortable, homely and spacious cottage in a good location. Handy for exploring the whole of the south west of Cornwall. Good for cyclists with easy access to small roads and a shed for bikes.

Wonderful cottage well equipped Everything to make a comfortable holiday ??

One of the best cottages we have stayed in. It had a lovely atmosphere and was excellently decorated throughout. The lounge area was particularly pleasant. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

A tranquil location, perfect for discovering the Lizard peninsula.

So glad you have enjoyed your return visit to Cowhouse Cottage! We are looking forward to welcoming you back! Shaleen, Customer Support

We had a lovely stay in the cottage, it met all our needs and was very comfortable. Ideal location to access various parts of Cornwall. Would stay again in the future.

We had a wonderful holiday. The cottage was exceptional, it's one of the cleanest we've ever stayed in and also one of the most comfortable. It had everything we needed and was a great location. The owners live next door and we're so welcoming and friendly. We'll definitely be booking it again

Superbly equipped to be a wonderful base for walking the glorious coastal paths

Great little 2 bedroom cottage, in beautiful countryside for exploring coast all around the Lizard Peninsula and Helford River. Great for walking.

A lovely homely and comfortable cottage in a great location for exploring the Lizard Peninsular and beyond.

The house, hosts and location were excellent. We had a very pleasant stay & would recommend the cottage to anyone.

Amazing cottage, very comfortable, we had a lovely stay and will be booking again.

We have just spent two lovely weeks in cowhouse cottage. We found the cottage so clean, well equipped and comfortable. The owners are so friendly and helpful. We loved it so much we have already booked for next year.

A lovely and well fitted out cottage with friendly and helpful owners (John & Anne) on site who readily helped out with one or two queries. It is so useful to have owners on site as opposed to being remote, many miles away. It is a very peaceful location and we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay. The only snag (for me) was the narrow, single-track lane from the main road leading to the Cottage

a very well equipped and bright cottage in a beautiful area. lovely hosts who welcomed us as friends and made our week even more memorable.

This was our second stay here and will return again sometime. Warm, comfortable and well equipped. The standard of cleanliness was exceptional and the owners really friendly and helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing week.

Cowhouse Cottage provides a real home from home. It is beautifully refurbished, extremely comfortable and cosy. The location is excellent. It is very peaceful and tranquil but has very easy access to the whole region. The secure and spacious parking is a great bonus. We did not want to leave and we are very grateful that this lovely property was available. We only had one week away from home in the whole of 2020 so we will never forget the happy time we spent at Cowhouse Cottage.

Well-equpped, comfortable cottage in a peaceful setting with countryside views from the garden. Very good location for visiting north and south coasts.

Cowhouse Cottage is very attractive and homely. Having two bathrooms was perfect for us and an unusual feature for a smaller holiday home. Both bedrooms are a good size and the beds are incredibly comfortable. Lots of attractions within easy driving distance. We found the owners very approachable and they readily addressed any minor issues we had.

We had a lovely holiday at this delightful and really homely cottage. Covid meant things had to be different but it did not spoil our enjoyment. The cottage had everything we could have asked for and we had fun cooking meals in the lovely and well equipped kitchen rather than eating out. We met Anne and John (the owners) over the fence and enjoyed talking to them. They made us feel very welcome despite the restrictions that Covid places on everyone. The cottage is in a perfect location for exploring a really beautiful part of the country.

We would highly recommend the Cowhouse cottage in Cornwall. It's representing a very nice and well done and equipped Cowhouse conversation.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in this delightful cottage in a beautiful part of the country. Cowhouse Cottage is a clean, warm, well-equipped cottage, well situated for our explorations of the Lizard and Land's End peninsulas. Ample parking and easy access to main roads was also really helpful, along with shed space to store outdoor equipment.

The Cowhouse is a most splendid holiday location. Exactly as described on your website, - quiet, spotlessly clean, everything you could want. So many local beauty spots to visit it was hard to choose. But above all the warmth of the reception and the kindness of the owners was exceptional. We will definitely be back.We were delighted with the location, facilities and the warmth of hospitality. T & T, Oxfordshire

A great cottage in a great location. The children really enjoyed playing hide and seek in and around the cottage. Really easy to get to the Lizard, St Ives and the Edan Project. Highly recommended

Great property, clean and everything you need for a relaxing stay.
Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The property was clean and spacious with all the amenities we needed for the week We have family in the area and it was a perfect placement for us.

The owners were very friendly. My children, particularly my daughter, loved the horse ‘Chalky’ who lives next door. His owner very kindly let her help her feed him.

Our only regret is we didn’t get to stay longer!

We think it is the best of all the properties we have booked through Classic Cottages.

John & Anne were warm, welcoming & had the most helpful attitude. We loved every second at their property & fully intend to return as soon as we can!

the cottage is wonderful, the location is good, nothing else to say

A very cosy, comfortable cottage with excellent facilities. Spotlessly clean and luxuriously comfortable beds.

We really enjoyed our week at Cowhouse Cottage, which was comfortable and well equipped. May is the perfect time to visit Cornwall and we made the most of the fine weather, beautiful scenery and fantastic wild flower displays. Highlights were the gorgeous beach and stunning Minack Theatre at Porthcurno, St. Michael's Mount, Trebah Gardens and a rather challenging walk (for two elderly ladies!) from Kynance to Lizard Point.

Well appointed cottage in great location. Super clean on arrival. Always warm. Very helpful owners.

Lovely cottage very comfortable and clean. Great location. Would definitely recommend it.

Spacious and comfortable Friendly and helpful owners Very easy to relax

This is a wonderful warm, cosy barn which is immaculate and very comfortable.

It is great to meet such friendly owners. Restores your faith in human nature.

Lovely short break. Thank you.

We had a wonderful time. On arrival, we had fresh flowers in the vase, milk in the fridge, log fire prepared...we were very pleasantly surprised how spacious the cottage was, warm, very quiet and very comfortable. John, the owner, came around to make sure we have everything we need. Highly recommended!!!

The cottage was charming, peaceful and very comfortable. A fabulous place to stay.

We'd be very happy to recommend this lovely cottage. It is very well located for lots of tourist attractions, beaches and restaurants. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean, well equipped, and has lovely comfortable beds and power showers - very important for a relaxing stay! The open plan living space is ideal for a family. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Excellant accommodation clean tidy and very comfortable. Home from home. Not really anything to improve on.
