July 2018

This was a delightful property & we have just returned from a wonderful week's stay there. It's tucked away & off the beaten track but with relative ease of access to both St Ives & Penzance. Penny & David were very welcome hosts and it was a lovely surprise to find tea & coffee, milk in the fridge & some delicious cake in the cottage on our arrival. We would definitely recommend.

The Old Cart house is one of the best holiday lets we have stayed in, extremely comfortable and with lovely decor (we particularly enjoyed the owner's art work). Location is great with lots of lovely places to visit nearby. Thank you to Penny and David for providing a superb holiday home, the welcome home made cake and for being such great hosts! We had a fabulous time...

We would like to thank David and Penny for a very comfortable stay and the lovely lemon drizzle cake left for our arrival. This is most certainly a perfect retreat.

True comfort and luxury in a fabulously peaceful setting. Penny and David were wonderful ‘hosts’ leaving me in peace but always on hand if I needed anything. Warm welcome with delicious cake and proper ground coffee. Everything easy to use with helpful instructions for heating and appliances. Comfortable Hypnos mattress and bedding gave me the best nights sleep I’ve enjoyed for a while. I will certainly return! Thank you!!

A very comfortable and peaceful cottage, perfect for two and ideal base for travelling around Cornwall and surrounding areas. A lovely welcome with home made cake, fresh milk, coffee and tea, thank you Penny!

We will definitely return.

April 2018

The cottage was very comfortable and cosy. Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Nice and warm, light and bright. Pretty seating areas in the garden. Great central location for visiting north and south coast. We loved it.

February 2018

Really great holiday cottage for 2 people. Penny and David have done a superb conversion on the old farm building making it a very comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Penny's artwork matches the decor perfectly and is a delightful addition to the cottage.

The City AGA was a treat to use, and this is from someone who has had a 2 oven Aga in the past.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return soon.
