What a lovely place to stay. Located close to Lizard, Helford Inlet and Kynance Cove - great walking straight from the door, and world class beaches nearby. Lovely garden and well equipped house - expect we'll be back.

The Mermaid Cottage is an ideal place for multi generation or family holidays. The village is perfect and very friendly with the added advantage of the excellent village shop and coffee bar. We would certainly go again and look forward to sitting in the garden looking at the sea. Thank you very much .

We had a fantastic stay in Mermaid Cottage, the cottage was so well equipped with everything we needed for our holiday. The views across the countryside were amazing. Mermaid Cottage is located in the quiet village of Ruan Minor, just a short stroll down the hill is the picturesque fishing village of Cadgwith where you can watch the fishing boats come in, the local pub has folk nights where all the locals get together and sing. Mermaid Cottage is well located to explore the Lizard peninsula.

An ideal cottage in a beautiful location for a wonderful, worry-free holiday.

A lovely comfortable holiday venue in a beautiful setting. Ruan Minor is a pretty village with some thatched cottages and good amenities.

We were extremely satisfied with the accommodation especially the ground floor double room with en suite shower room.

A chilly first week was helped by more than adequate central heating.

The cottage is a good centre for visiting the many pretty coves andd beaches on the Lizard peninsula and is not far from Earth Station Goonhillly for the scientifically minded!

Wi Fi was useful as was a good phone signal as we were able to keep in touch with family very easily.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
