Miss Andoe September 2019
I really enjoyed my stay at Favonian. Even though the weather wasn't great, the cottage provided a warm, peaceful and very comfortable place to relax after a day's blustery hiking. The views from the cottage are fantastic, there are plenty of clifftop walks nearby, the Cot Valley is beautiful, and St Just has enough shops and pubs for everything you need while remaining a small village. I look forward to a return visit.
Mr Ayres August 2019
We have stayed in many cottages over the years, the last three through your company, all have been comfortable. Favonian was the most well equipped by far. It was extremely cosy and comfortable. You could see it was Sarah’s home. The views from the windows were amazing. With sunsets to die for. The cream tea that was waiting for us on our arrival was very welcome. Sarah was such an amazing host, it was a pleasure to stay in her home and to meet her?? Sue & Jim Ayres. Stayed 30/08 - 13/09/2019. Weather mostly good
Mrs Dorling July 2019
A beautiful house with stunning views. The perfect location to feel peaceful and away from it all, yet only 5 mins walk into the local village. One of the nicest houses we have stayed in during more than 25 years of visiting this area. Spotlessly clean, really comfortable beds plus all the home comforts you desire.
Miss Jordan June 2019
Stunning property in a fantastic location.
Mrs Moynehan May 2019
A very charming and comfortable property in a great location, with outstanding views. Plenty of walks and local places to visit. The owner is a charming, friendly lady. Would definitely recommend to family and friends and would definitely book this property again when we are next in the area.
Mrs Fairhurst May 2019
Fantastic all round
Mr Jolly April 2019
Excellent property. Endless walks right on the doorstep and all the amenities you could want within easy walking distance. Such a enjoyable holiday that we have already made a reserve booking for next year.
Mrs Paton September 2018
Beautiful cottage very well equipped and comfortable with views to dream about.
Mr Daniels July 2018
A lovely welcoming smile met us on our arrival; the location and property were fantastic, views amazing; shops/eateries were a walk away through delightful, enclosed footpaths. The ease with which you could access Sennen for surfing either by car or bus was great. We will be back.
Miss Dally July 2018
A beautiful house in a perfect location. A true home from home. Our second trip and we’ve already booked for 2019. As veterans of self-catering cottage holidays, Favonian is the best we’ve ever stayed in. Spotless, comfortable, equipped with everything we needed and more. Warmly welcomed by a thoughtful and unobtrusive host. And that gorgeous tree. Perfect.
Mr Easterbrook June 2018
A charming cottage, very well located for coastal walks, easy road travel to the rest of Cornwall and a great location with easy and safe (I.e. no walking on windy roads without paths) walking to St. Just town centre and it’s lovely pubs, shops and cafes.
Mrs Minister June 2018
My husband and I were impressed by the quality of the accommodation at Favonian. It was a very comfortable and well-equipped bungalow. The owner was extremely friendly and informative about the local area. The setting of the property was delightful. We would have no hesitation in recommending the accommodation to others. As we live in Australia we are unlikely to return to the area but, if we did, we would definitely return to this lovely home.
Mr Whitehouse June 2018
The property has excellent sea views. Is in a lovely quiet location and was spotless. The property was well appointed and the owner very welcoming.
Mr Ridewood May 2018
An excellent outstanding bungalow!
Mr Brown May 2018
This is a lovely cottage, beautifully prepared and peaceful from day one.
Miss Smith May 2018
Such a lovely owner, very welcoming and easy to talk to! Yummy cream tea welcoming!! Its a lovely spacey bungalow. It's has got some amazing views to look at everyday, beautiful to wake up to. It's a 5 min walk into st just town where you have the shops and pubs. It's a lovely location to be, we found it very easy to get to everywhere we wanted to get to and still be out of a town. Peacefully quiet aswell. Thank you for letting us use and enjoy your home :)
Mrs Deavin April 2018
Lovely welcome by Sarah and the cream tea was a nice thought. The house was lovely, with magnificent views towards Cape Cornwall and Lands End, which we enjoyed. The situation was ideal for us, it was well placed for reaching various points on the coastal path which we were walking and made an excellent base for this. It was an easy flat walk into St Just for local shops and pubs. It was also excellent for dogs with a dog proof garden and good entrance area for muddy boots and muddy dogs to be dried off in.
Mr Todkill September 2017
Superb accommodation, set in an idyllic corner of the UK. Furthermore, the bed in the en-suite room is the comfiest we have ever slept in. We were able to shed the stresses of everyday life after spending just one night in this perfect bungalow. We cannot praise it enough.
Mr Putman September 2017
Brilliant views lovely owner fabulous bungalow.
Ms Fearnhamm July 2017

Reverend Robertson July 2017
The owner, Sarah, was wonderful. She was really helpful and caring, and there were so many beautiful extra touches to make us feel welcome. It was easy to tell she and her husbands are artists by the beautiful colours and decor throughout the whole house, as well as the array of artwork. It was such a beautiful and peaceful place to stay, and we are grateful to Sarah for making it even more special.
Mrs Sikora June 2017
We spent two wonderful weeks at the Favonian in wonderful surroundings and felt really comfortable from the beginning. Many thanks to our landlady Sarah, who has spoilt us four and our dog very much. The house has a stunning location and is very well and extremely tastefully decorated. The large garden leaves nothing to be desired. We still often think back to the good times and hope that we will come back soon!
Mr Brown June 2017
We arrived slightly early but the owner was most helpful and we were soon moving in. Liked the welcome tray and wild flower posy. The cottage lay-out is unusual but inspired. Architectural details excellent. There were good libraries of books, DVDs, CDs and games. The mix was eclectic and much enjoyed. I think this is the first cottage I have stayed in where the kitchen knives were beautifully sharp! The views were stunning. Wish we had booked for two weeks! We certainly hope to go back to Favonian soon.
Mrs Spencer May 2017
Lovely cottage, great views, very welcoming to humans and dogs.
Dr Jausovec May 2017
We enjoyed our stay very much and felt at home the day we arrived. The Cottage is furnishesd in the best of taste and very well aquipped. We have been wellcomed very friendly by Mrs. Lay. We enjoyed every day the panoramic view from every part of the house and the walks that start just from the frontdoor. We wished we could have stayed longer. (please excuse my English)
Ms King May 2017
We have stayed in many rental houses in the UK and overseas but this was our favourite ever. A beautifully laid out home which made us feel like we were staying in a friend's home rather than in a rental property. Immaculately clean, high level of attention to detail - from local handmade soaps in the bathrooms to welcome posies, a tray of local tea-time treats and even fresh water and a treat for our dog. Very comfortable beds and furnishings and well equipped kitchen too - sharp knives, butter dish, a good selection of pans etc, none of which are to be found in most rental properties. We were delighted that the owner, Sarah, was able to recommend dog sitters which allowed us to go out to the Minack theater one evening and on an afternoon sailing trip, knowing that our dog was well looked after and even walked. Favonian's location means it's an ideal spot for a holiday with a dog - coastal paths from the doorstep, a local community farm shop just across the fields for fresh eggs etc, and local dog-friendly buses if you have particularly long walks! We are looking forward to a return visit before too long...
Mr Evans May 2017
Favonian is in a stunning location with fabulous sea views from almost every window. A very relaxing place to stay. You can walk to St Just from the cottage. There are dog walks right from the door step which is great.
