The Packing House is comfortable, immaculate & well equipped, everything has been thought of for your stay. This was our 2nd visit & certainly won’t be our last. Thank you Peter & Armorel for the lovely welcome treats, you have a wonderful property & we really liked the new garden layout, as did our dogs! The area is so peaceful & we were totally relaxed ready for our onward journey to Scilly. Hope to be back again soon

Great property, we really enjoyed our stay. We stayed at the Packing House when our daughter got married in St Ives. The property was big enough to accommodate the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready on the morning of the wedding. The house and garden also provided a beautiful backdrop for photos. We all had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back. Thank you to the hosts for their warm welcome and fabulous hospitality throughout our stay.

A beautifully decorated property in a great location. The owners have thought of everything. The extra homely touches made our stay special. We'll definitely be back.

Superb spacious house and garden. Could easily stayed for a second week!

An amazing property, spacious, modern, comfortable, nothing not to love. We will definitely be back here. The property was perfect in terms of accessibility for our 8yr old disabled son. The location is convenient for exploring the far west and is a 5 min drive from supermarkets and centre of Penzance.

What a wonderful property. Great location, beautifully furnished, very spacious and great outside space. The house has lots of little thoughtful touches, very well equipped and Peter the owner very helpful and friendly. We would love to return :)

Thank you for leaving a lovely review. We're ever so pleased that you thought the property was wonderful, and that the owners were very helpful and friendly. We can't wait for your possible return! Meg, Customer Support

This cottage has been appointed to a very high standard with all considerations given to comfort and ease. All amenities clean and workable to enable a family to enjoy a comfortable stay. Plenty of skylights throughout the property which lets the lovely sunshine through and warmth. Owners are quick to welcome guests and provide any help you may require either property related or just advice on the surrounding area. Its location is at the end of a small access road and the other properties are sufficiently spaced with large gardens so as not to be heard. Lovely views from upstairs. Downstairs twin room is adequate for teenagers with one of the beds set against the wall. The wet room next door is massive. The main bedroom is exceptionally large with a huge wardrobe and well appointed en-suite. Lovely and light with ample space for a cot etc. If the weather prohibits venturing too far there are DVDs to watch, packs of cards etc and Netflix to keep you entertained. The village is very quiet with plenty of walks nearby. The local Hospital is located 5 minutes away should you require immediate attention for minor problems. There is a Tesco/Sainsbury's and Morrisons within a short drive.

This is the best property we've stayed in. Apart from the excellent facilities, the location is very peaceful with the property being set away from the road.

The house was absolutely perfect and there was everything we needed and more. Would definitely recommend

We had a lovely stay over Easter at the Packing House, the house is very spacious with a very large safe garden for the kids to play in. The house was immaculate on our arrival and Peter the owner is only a phone call away if you require anything. I would highly recommend the Packing House for anyone looking at booking a cottage in Cornwall.

This is our second visit and it is a lovely place to stay. We will go back at some point. Close to other attractions. All you would need and more supplied for your use. Thank you

Had a fantastic stay at The Packing House. The property is spacious, incredibly comfortable and well equipped. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, and left a lovely welcome pack. The enclosed garden was perfect for allowing the dog to play out without fear of them running off. The location is great, with most places of interest being less than 30 minutes drive away. We managed to do a couple of shortish local walks when the weather allowed, and know there were several more we could have done. Maybe next time, as we'd definitely like to come back and stay again.

Thank you for a wonderful stay for our anniversary. We were welcomed by a lovely cream tea. The house was so comfortable and one of the best equipped homes we have stayed in. Our dog loved the enclosed garden and did many zooomies around it!! Despite it being wild and windy we were warm and cosy! The owner was lovely too. We hope to return with more of our family. Thank you!

We really loved our time at the Packing House, upon arrival there was Prosecco and chocolates. The rooms were really nice and spacious and we loved cooking in the kitchen. There was also a nice little box of chocolates from Classic Cottages for my Birthday. The location was great, in the middle of everything we wanted. Such a lovely place and with the history of the Packing House being a flower farm was so interesting, we would love to go again.

We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Packing House and found the history behind it so interesting. Prosecco and chocolates on arrival sounds like the perfect way to start a holiday. We do hope you'll come and stay again soon. Kelsey, Customer Support

Cottage was fabulous. Very clean, warm and comfortable with everything needed provided. We all agreed it was the best holiday cottage we have stayed in in Cornwall. The location is very peaceful and the house exceeded our expectations. To arrive on a very cold winters day to the warmth and the fire lit was very welcome.

Thank you for your lovely comments and what a great recommendation! We are so glad to hear that you were so cosy inside despite the freezing outdoor temperatures. Sarah, Customer Support

A stunning property with a great enclosed garden for our dogs. Very spacious, comfortable & well equipped. We arrived late & the owners Peter & Armorel had put all of the lights & the fire on for our arrival & even offered to get some essentials for us, lovely touch. We felt instantly at home & loved it so much we booked for next year whilst having been there less than 24 hours! That says it all really. Thank you for a lovely stay

This is a lovely property full of little touches you don’t tend to expect from a holiday house. In an excellent location to explore the far south west of Cornwall. Brilliant garden and field

The Packing House is a lovely holiday home. It’s well equipped and very comfortable. A good location for exploring what west Cornwall has to offer. I look forward to a return visit.

This is a stunning house in a quiet location, very large and accommodating for 6, great space for young children to play safely and fabulous to return too, after a busy day exploring. Would highly recommend.

The Packing House is an ideal property for a family holiday.

The Packing House is a very spacious and well appointed property in an attractive village close to Mount's Bay. Many walks from the door to fascinating prehistoric and Celtic sites. Coastal scenery likewise superb.

The Packing House has to be the best cottage we have stayed in. Situated in a quiet location, yet within easy reach or shops and attractions. The Cottage has everything we could have asked for and a safe secure garden for the dog, with plenty of garden furniture and a BBQ, we didn't want to leave. Needless to say, we will be pack...... Fabulous place !!

As usual a very nice holiday booked with yourselves. Amazing house and possibly the most well equipped property we have stayed in! Garden furniture an added bonus and great quality. Would highly recommend although far far too big for two people and a small dog lol! Plenty of room for a family and a super location near to all the great places to visit. Many thanks everyone x

this was our second visit, and again it didn't disappoint. a large spacious property, whose owner has thought of everything. plenty of equipment (doesn't skimp on glasses/mugs or teaspoons!). in a lovely location, great for dogs and children.

A really lovely clean and comfy property with light and space for a family group as well as outside space to enjoy in fine weather. We really appreciated the accessible downstairs bedroom and bathroom, and the laundry room for cleaning off our beach and swim gear. Lots to explore nearby .

5 star review - Excellent stay. Beautiful property, well equipped and stunning surroundings Highly recommend

Perfect cottage for our family holiday, all amenities were to a very high standard and had everything we needed.

The Packing House is a dream holiday home, I have high expectations of cleanliness and decor and this met every one of them. Every detail has been thought of and you can relax in comfort and real luxury. It’s amazing!

Faultless. The welcome scones were a lovely touch which disappeared as soon as the kettle had boiled and we had our coats off! Lots of great places to explore nearby. The beds were so comfy and I just wish I'd look to see the make of the pillows so I could buy them for my B&B. So well equipped and beautifully furnished.

Amazing, stunning, well equipped cottage. Wonderful and friendly owners who nothing is too much trouble when you ask. Would highly recommend and we will definitely be returning!

very homely and beautiful

This is a very comfortable house in a beautifully quiet location yet only about 20 minutes drive from some of Cornwall’s best beaches. We had a very relaxing stay and thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks. The garden was a surprise as it looks quite small in the photographs yet it is probably about half an acre. Peter kindly left the cricket stumps for us to use. This is a wonderful and safe garden for children with plenty of garden furniture. A perfect base to explore the far west of Cornwall and relax in at the end of the day!

We loved every minute at The Packing House, we loved it that much we have already booked for next year. The house had everything you could wish for. We met the host and they had the slide and swing ready for the boys in the garden. The house is in a great location and the beaches are all but a 10 minute drive away. We can't wait to return next year.

The Packing House lived up to our expectations. We were a mixed age group and all our needs were met. The host provided us with recommendations for our trip to the isles of Scillies, and we were not disappointed. He also rang after for our opinions Would definitely book again and recommend The Packing House, hopeful to return in the not too distance future.

This is a beautiful house, exceptionally well equiped and brilliant for dogs and children. there was great attention to detail, and it is the small things that make you welcome. we will definitely book again - if we can find an available slot!!

Had a great stay here. One of the best holiday cottages we've rented. Very well furnished and equipped with everything you could think of. Gated property would make it very safe for children and pets. Cleanliness excellent and felt Covid safe We would love to re-book later in the year.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are so happy that you had a great stay! It sounds as if you have found your bolthole! We are sure that the owners will be delighted that you found the property to be so well furnished and equipped. We so look forward to welcoming you back in the future and should you need any assistance we are more than happy to help. Sarah, Customer Support

Fantastic place loads of space and quality furnishings .Peter the host was very helpful and Madron is just far enough from Penzance to feel that you are in the country but near enough for shopping & takeaways etc All the major attractions Marazion , Lands End ,St Ives and numerous Sandy beaches are within 30 mins drive Would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to stay at a special place with room for all .

Amazing cottage, very tastefully done, with everything you need. Loved the fireplace (not real!) for cosy evenings in. Great walks/runs from the door and fab beaches a short drive away. Great recommendations on pubs/places to go from the owners. Really could not fault it, despite the stormy weather

Fantastic cottage very comfortable

Thank you Peter for sharing your lovely home - wonderfully comfortable and welcoming. Great location for visiting the fabulous Cornish coastline and beaches. Fantastic walking country!

Delightful holiday home away from it all. We were so chilled Thankyou

A lovely holiday home, one of the best we've stayed in.

This has to be one of the nicest cottages we’ve stayed in. It had everything, great facilities and felt so luxurious and cosy. Great for the dogs too. We will be back.x

We had a wonderful week at The Packing House. It was a warm and very comfortable place to stay and light and airy too. We loved it and would definitely stay again when we next visit West Cornwall.

The house was very well equipped, clean & tidy. It is very spacious & comfort. It is probably the nicest house we have stayed in. Peter, the owner was on hand should we have any issues or questions but left you alone to enjoy your holiday in peace. He hit the balance perfectly.

We would certainly recommend a stay at this property 10/10

What can I say apart from WOW! The packing house is by far the NICEST holiday cottage we have ever stayed in! All the little touches like being greeted with fresh scones, jam and clotted cream upon arrival, and even a cartoon of milk ready for us in the fridge, go such a long way! The property is very well laid out, spacious, super clean and welcoming! Once we had arrived the owner Peter came to say hello to make sure we were settled in and everything was OK. We told him we had travelled from Ipswich for the week to get married in St Just on the Friday. The next day we came back to the cottage to find a bottle of champagne by the door step from the owners as a pre wedding gift. It was such a lovely and thoughtful gesture! We were very pleased :) We had the most wonderful weeks stay whilst celebrating our wedding and couldn't of asked for a better base for us and the family. There's plenty to do and see nearby with some of the most beautiful beaches a 20/25 min drive away! Would highly recommend and will be looking to book again in the future.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Well what can we say…other than CONGRATULATIONS! We hope you had a truly wonderful wedding day in beautiful St Just and it's so lovely that you had such a wonderful stay at The Packing House following your special day. What a perfect gift from the lovely owners and hopefully you were able to put that to good use the night before your wedding! We hope to welcome you for many anniversaries in the future. Bryony, Customer Support

This is the nicest Classic Cottage we have stayed in, it ticked all of the boxes. It is so spacious, clean and comfortable, we took our dog on holiday for the first time this year and the enclosed garden was a real bonus for us. We loved reading about the history of the Packing House, the owner has done an amazing job of renovating it in to a beautiful home.

Beautiful home away from home. Spacious and welcoming. The owners were away but ensured we had no problems and we had means of contacting them should we have needed it. Our dog loved playing in the garden. We loved our stay here and would highly recommend. Its a little out of the way with not a lot in walking distance, not an issue for us as everything is within a very short drive, but may bother some.

Gorgeous house but the lack of local facilities makes this a property I would not return to with my mum who has mobility issues. The owners are fabulous and when we couldnt work the central heating, made sure this was sorted for us immediately - even though they were on holiday themselves. My rating is four stars only due to lack of local facilities. The house itself gets five stars.

We're so pleased that you loved the house and that the owners were so friendly and quick to assist where needed. Madron is an unspoilt little village, with the local pub as a central hub a short walk away (400 yards), but we do understand that you may have preferred some larger shops and town centres a little closer. We're always very happy to chat to guests about where to stay prior to booking; whether you're looking for a busy, bustling setting, or if you want to immerse yourself in a sleepy village like Madron, our team can help! Tanya, Customer Support

This is an exceptional property, furnished and equipped to the highest standard. It is in an excellent location and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. I would certainly recommend it.

Fantastic, lovely, clean and spacious property in a great location close to all local amenities and places of interest.

We loved our stay at this beautifully presented house it had everything you could ask for. It was perfect! We will certainly book to stay again next year. Could you please pass on our thanks to the owners for letting us take our dogs, it was much appreciated, thankyou.

We're so glad you all had a great stay - even the dogs! There are several beaches near the cottage that are dog friendly all year round (Wherrytown, Long Rock and Eastern Green all near Penzance, Portheras Cove near St Just) so your canine companions can enjoy a run on the sand whatever the time of year. Tanya, Customer Support

Exactly what we were expecting. No hidden surprises!

A perfect place for a family vacation. Felt so homely and we just didn’t want to leave.

100% we’ll be back.

A peaceful haven away from it all, the house was so thoughtfully stocked with everything you could wish for. It enhanced our holiday. Thankyou

The Packing House was the nicest cottage we have stayed in over six years of self-catering. It is very comfortable and well-equipped and was very dog-friendly. Peter, the owner, phoned us the day before we due to arrive to let us know that the cottage was ready, so we wouldn't have to wait until 3pm to go in, which we found very thoughtful. He seemed very keen to ensure that our stay at the cottage was a good one!

A delightful property offering peace and quiet, easy access to the Southwest, well equipped and comfortable. Thank you.

An amazing property that lives up to and exceeds expectations. Light, airy and plenty of space for a family. The property is located within easy access of everywhere we wanted to visit (including Eden, Lands End, St Ives). It is decorated and finished to a very high standard and you won't be disappointed.

Stunning property with everything you could need. Really well laid out. Great for anyone with limited mobility too. Had an excellent week with plenty to do and see nearby. Would highly recommend.

An absolutely superb property in every way. Our first holiday to Cornwall as a Family was enhanced with The Packing House as a base for our travels.
