October 2019

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

October 2019

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

September 2019

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.

September 2019

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.

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.

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!

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.

Reply from Classic Cottages

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!

February 2019

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

September 2018

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!

August 2018

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

July 2018

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.

July 2018

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.

May 2018

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.
