I really enjoyed staying at The Old Cart House. The accommodation was excellent and it was perfectly located for exploring the rugged coast and coves, St Ives, Penzance and ancient Cornish sites. I would definitely like to stay there again.

A clean, bright and beautifully styled and comfortable place to stay. Quiet location which is just what we wanted away from the crowds. Great walks locally and Penzance and St Ives nearby if you feel the need to mingle.
Miss Smith September 2019
We loved our stay in the Old Cart House. It was so cosy and comfortable, from the big squishy sofa to the homemade cake on the cake stand. An open plan main room meant we could easily cook dinner in the evenings whilst relaxing and spending time together. It was simply a lovely place to return to after a day out walking or exploring.
Mrs Rees September 2019
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at The Old Cart House. It's a lovely and comfortable property, decorated in a beautiful way and was perfect for our holiday. Although the location is very quiet and peaceful you aren't far from the local towns and attractions, there are also numerous supermarkets nearby to buy food and things from. Penny gave us a very warm welcome and explained how to use the Aga (which I'd never used before, but I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to use and cook with!) we visit Cornwall quite often due to having family living in the area so we'll definitely be looking to book The Old Cart House again.

We found the cottage to be a peaceful haven. It was beautifully decorated, comfortable, and had everything two people could possibly need. We would definitely come back.

Mrs Sims 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.
Mrs Hilton June 2018
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...

Mrs Ferguson June 2018
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.
Miss Vaughan May 2018
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!!
Mrs Hasler April 2018
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.
Mr Stow 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.
Mrs Roberts 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.
