Mrs Pronger December 2021
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!
Mrs Robinson November 2021
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.
Mrs Bellis August 2021
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!
Mrs Holling August 2021
very homely and beautiful
Mr Glascow July 2021
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!
Mrs Squire May 2021
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.
Mrs Rickards May 2021
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.
Mr Boott April 2021
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!!
Mrs Thomas April 2021
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.

Mr Lewis December 2020
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 .
Mrs Cann October 2020
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
Mrs Finch September 2020
Fantastic cottage very comfortable
Mrs Taylor July 2020
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!
Ms Hanney October 2019
Delightful holiday home away from it all. We were so chilled Thankyou
Mr Deane October 2019
A lovely holiday home, one of the best we've stayed in.
Mrs Overton 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
Mrs Whittington 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.
Mr Jenkins 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
Miss Backhouse August 2019
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.

Mrs Bush June 2019
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.
Mr Frostick May 2019
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.
Mrs Hobson-Kelly May 2019
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
Ms Bates May 2019
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.
Mr Horswell March 2019
Fantastic, lovely, clean and spacious property in a great location close to all local amenities and places of interest.
Mrs Duncan March 2019
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
Mrs Ellis March 2019
Exactly what we were expecting. No hidden surprises!
Mr Newell February 2019

Ms Hanney October 2018
A peaceful haven away from it all, the house was so thoughtfully stocked with everything you could wish for. It enhanced our holiday. Thankyou
Mrs Watson 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!
Mr Larkam August 2018
A delightful property offering peace and quiet, easy access to the Southwest, well equipped and comfortable. Thank you.
Mrs Crampton 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.
Mr Barber 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.
Mr West 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.
