A lovely cottage in a beautiful, tranquil, rural location. The location of the garden overlooking the head of the creek is simply stunning. We sat out until after dark with our coats on (late October), and also took our breakfast down there. The sound of the owls calling each other at dusk and dawn is wonderful.

Thanks so much for reviewing Creek Cottage. As holiday destinations go this one certainly ticks all the boxes! The creek side position, views and super stylish interior make for such a relaxing holiday it would be hard to leave the property at all! If you can tear yourself away however you'll find beautiful villages, stunning hamlets and gorgeous scenery all right on your doorstep! We're sure we'll be seeing you again soon.

The view from the garden was fantastic. The location of the property was perfect.

Great house for a family with children as the creek access provides a lot of fun at anytime of day. Would happily visit again

Such a wonderful place to stay! Super clean, wonderfully warm and beautifully furnished and decorated and a perfect place to stay to visit most of Cornwall. Loved it!

Creek Cottage is a light-filled, contemporary cottage situated in the tiny, lush hamlet of Polwheveral. It's a short, meandering, steep drive down to the cottage through the trees and ferns and you'll be parking on a wee slope too, but its easy peasy and definitely worth the adventure.

A gift shop owner in Coverack, a cafe-owner in Mousehole, a gallery owner in Marazion and a fisherman in Porthleven all smiled at us and politely said: "Sorry, never heard of Polwheveral." Polwheveral is one of the Lizard's little secrets, it would appear. For us, this made Creek Cottage even more magical.

Hidden deep in the valley, but just a 5-minute drive to the main roads around the Lizard, Creek Cottage is a perfect location for exploring this beautiful area. From the cottage, we happily visited St. Agnes, St. Ives, St. Just and Sennen, as well as many of the coves, beaches and Helford river villages throughout the Lizard in a week.

Highlights: The sculpture fields at Coverack (another secret, just off the coast path), Poldhu beach (the café sell their own gorgeous knitted pom pom hats and felted scarves), the drive from St. Ives to St. Just along the coast road (incredible), and the beautiful Kynance Cove and Kynance Cove Café (stunning).

Going to sleep, listening to the owls hooting in the trees around you, waking up and watching the geese and cormorants in the creek below as the sun rises over the cottage... Perfect!

Well equipped and beautifully situated cottage. Lots to do in the area (car essential). Room sizes suitable for 6 adults. Large kitchen/diner plus sunny seating area overlooking the creek - lovely for early evening drinks. Technically access to the water for small portable craft eg kayak/paddleboard but tide out much of the time as well up the creek so better to launch elsewhere. Plenty of opportunity to watch the wildlife.

Beautiful Family Cottage Very Comfortable Excellent furnishings
