Stunning views and very well fitted out.

Make sure you buy food befire arrival otherwise quite a trip out to supermarket.

Excellent location, but property needs a through refurbishment.

We enjoyed our stay, but the lane that the cottage is on is a bit tricky to navigate.

Stayed here many times, fabulous views. Wonderful 2 weeks, Talland as always a wonderful setting.

Phoenix, a beautiful house in a perfect location. Will return to this magical spot.

Excellent property in an excellent location. We loved the views from the house. Nice little beach and very convenient for walking the coastal pass. Highly recommended.

A lovely cottage with an amazing view. We had a magical time and plan to return. Bring wetsuits for the sea swim - Water still very cold In June.

We had the best half term holiday. We arrived to homemade scones with local cream and jam, which we promptly ate with a pot of tea. The Cottage was really clean and tidy. There wasn't anything that you would have at home that wasn't thought about and provided. The views are absolutely stunning, which alongside a roaring fire it doesn't get much better. The beach is a 2 min walk away with a lovely café. We body boarded, collected cockles, crabbing, the whole week was just great. I cant recommend the Cottage enough, we will be back.

We stayed a week at this lovely house. We were a party of two families and we had plenty of room. The view is spectacular and we enjoyed it that Talland Bay is a little bit remote and therefore not so overcrowded as other spots in Cornwall. We would come again!

We had a wonderful stay at Phoenix. This house gives you the feeling of coming home. Everything is lovely and well-chosen. The soft mattresses made us all very happy. We slept like queens in our beds. Thanks a lot for that pleasant stay.

Wonderful location

The location is fantastic, the view perfect. The property is getting a little tired and the steps from the house to the beach are perilously unsafe. It has been mentioned in the visitors book and therefore think that the owners should have signs outside stating that they are unsafe, slippery and unstable. This shouldn't put anyone off as it is a fantastic place in a superb location.

It's great to hear that you enjoyed your break at Phoenix, and we're really grateful for your thoughts. The steps actually belong to a third party but the owner of Phoenix is trying to get in contact to see if an arrangement can be made re maintenance. In the meantime we'd suggest that guests don't go through the garden gate and down these steps, but use the main access to the beach just down the hill. We'd have to agree that the location is hard to beat, and we hope you'll come back again soon. Tanya, Customer Support

The house was in a beautiful location with stunning views, but this doesn't excuse poor housekeeping or potential breaches of health and safety.

We are rating 3 stars, purely for the location, comfortable beds, good quality linen and towels. With better housekeeping and maintenance, this property would achieve 5 stars - but not as it is now.

We're so sorry that you were disappointed - as detailed in our email, we've followed up all the points you raised with the housekeeping team. The owners have taken on board your suggestion and are going to fit a handrail to the main set of steps, but we'll also highlight the easier alternative access in case guests prefer to use it. Tanya, Customer Support

This is a property with an incredible view and a wonderful access to the beach. I can recommend it.

A perfect setting for a relaxed holiday.Wow that view.
