A delightful cottage set in a very peaceful location with a private garden. Only a short walk from the sea and 30 mins walk from Helston along Looe Bar.

Perfect location for all our favourite places on The Lizard. So comfortable and extremely well equipped. We will definitely be back.
Mrs Corcoran May 2021
Carminowe View is a very comfortable cottage, beautifully decorated and well equipped, and in a perfect location for traffic free walking from the front door. We lacked nothing! Many thanks.

Lovely cottage, fantastic location, I';m sure we'll be back.
Mr Johns September 2020
This was our second stay at Carminowe View Cottage. David and Elaine are lovely hosts and the cottage is perfectly placed for walking. It is tucked away but is within easy reach of shops and lovely beaches. Our dog loved the woodland walks, the beach and lake as well as the beautiful coastal path. We will undoubtedly be visiting again in the future.
Mrs Chamberlain October 2019
This beautiful cottage is in a great rural location with lots of amazing walks, but is also within easy travelling distance of some of our favourite places. The owners are very welcoming & friendly. We had a lovely holiday & we're looking forward to going back again next year!

Our third time at Carminowe and it won’t be the last. This time it made for a very special Christmas and an excuse to relax and light the fire in this peaceful part of Cornwall.

A lovely welcome with Lemon Drizzle cake, wine and tea and milk waiting for you. Part of a collection of buildings down a country lane, but still plenty of privacy.
Mrs Sims June 2018
Carminowe Cottage is a well maintained, comfortable cottage with a lovely homely feel. It has a nice private garden to enjoy and there are walks and footpaths right on the doorstep. The whole package provided us with a very relaxing holiday.
Mr Perkins May 2018
Quiet convenient location. Near the sea and country walks but also near the shops and Helston. An excellent touring base. The owner was kind enough to provide the relevant OS map. Generous welcome pack included home made cake, a bottle of wine and a bunch of sweet peas which scented the room for the whole week. Owner on site if needed. We were made to feel welcome.
Mr Cudworth May 2018
Everything about the cottage - facilities, location, etc. were first-class. Got to be one of the very best cottages I've ever stayed in over many, many years of similar holidays. Easy to see why it is so popular. Could not fault it in the slightest. 11/10 in every respect.
Mr Scott April 2018
I have stayed at Carminowe View before under previous ownerships and it is a place close to my heart for various reasons, not least for the fact that it was the first place I stayed in Cornwall in 1998. It has always been a lovely place to stay. The present owners have given it its best presentation yet. It has been refurbished to a high standard and the fixtures, fittings and furnishings are of very high quality and are very comfortable, attractive and relaxing - perfect for a holiday and for the area. The décor is coordinated with lots of artistic touches and the owners' artworks plus the historic poster and photographs make for a lovely combination. The owners were very friendly and approachable and inviting but also left you alone to enjoy your stay.
Ms Stotzka April 2018
The cottage, location, owners... All lovely. I'm sure I'll be back.
Ms Goult February 2018

Mrs Heitzmann September 2017
Lovely cottage in a beautiful landscape. The location ist a good base for trips in different destinations. The owners are very nice and helpful, but they leave you alone. We absolutely felt "home" there.

Beautiful cottage in a peaceful location but still close to the lively town of Porth Leven. Very well equipped. Couldn't wish for more for a self catering holiday.

Super property with fabulous walks right from doorstep. The secure garden was really appreciated by us and our hound. It meant we could all relax knowing he could run around safely.
Mrs Rayden December 2016
Comfortable, well-equipped and set in stunning countryside, the cottage more than met our expectations.
Mr Coney October 2016
Lovely cottage, ideal location for exploring the area and great for the dog too. Situated on a network of footpaths and bridleways so you don't have to drive anywhere to go for a long walk.
Mr Mercer October 2016
One of the best places we have stayed in for a while.
Mr Rennie September 2016
Beautiful stone cottage, set off with artwork by the owner. Quiet location with dark skies to view the Milky Way on a cloud free night, but close enough to Porthleven with it's great pubs, cafes and restaurants.
Mrs Mueller August 2016
We had a very long way to go to this beautiful cottage - but it was worth it. We´ll come back someday. This was our home for two weeks - and we felt like home. Everyone was happy there - and we were five !
Thanks a lot ! You made our holiday !

Mrs Erdelen June 2016
This was the first time we stayed in Cornwall. The cottage was perfect for us and our dog. The location is very quiet and beautiful, bur equally it is not far away to a superstore. There are alot of footpaths that started two minutes ago from the cottage. The owner and his daughter were very friendly and we get a cake and Prosecco on arrival. We would like to come back next year.
