Thimble Cottage is a little gem on the edge of Pendeen, a fantastic Cornish village which has all a holidaymaker could wish for. From the cottage there are many footpaths across the fields to the coastal path or the moors above - we hardly used the car all week and the dog was a very happy lad. The cottage itself was very cosy, especially when we were in front of the log burner on a cold night. It is very well appointed - beautiful decor, a monsoon shower, comfy beds, high quality bedding and a full range of kitchen equipment. Don't miss out on a walk from the village to Pendeen lighthouse and then walk north along the coastal path to tiny exquisite Boat Cove and then on Portheras beach. Cornwall at it's best. A cream tea at Moomaid in Zennor is a treat that should not be missed!

Really enjoyed thimble cottage the touches and furnishings were top notch . The location was good and quiet and Dee the dog loved the fields opposite as well as some beaches. The housekeeping team led by Ann were great I will certainly be returning

Thimble cottage is a real gem. It is in a stunning part of Cornwall, is beautifully placed to discover some fantastic places, and is clearly well-cared for and loved by its owner and cleaning staff. The decor and soft furnishings are stylish and impressive, the beds comfortable, water pressure terrific, and the whole cottage cosy and welcoming. Ann, the housekeeper really does a brilliant job of communicating with you, and of keeping this house in fantastic order. Try to visit Portheras Cove (the ‘locals beach’); it’s worth the walk, Pendeen Lighthouse, St Just, Marazion, Sennen, Penzance, Cape Cornwall, Mousehole…. I could go on. The ‘Dog and Rabbit’ cafe in St Just is amazing, as is ‘The Moomaid of Zennor’ coffee and ice-cream shop (ask for shipwreck ice-cream), and Jeremy’s fish and chip shop. We found the neighbours and locals in Pendeen lovely, as we found all the people we met throughout Cornwall, infact. I am trying to book Thimble Cottage for next year which tells you everything you need to know. Thank you, Classic Cottages for sourcing brilliant accommodation and not taking financial advantage of demand!

A superb retreat to enjoy south west Cornwall. Perfectly situated to explore the area.

Excellent walks from the front door.

We had a fabulous stay at Thimble Cottage and would love to return. The cottage is beautiful and in a great location.The owners were very accommodating when we had to change our booking due to COVID restrictions. Classic cottages were very helpful too. Thank you so much. Kay Kingsnorth.

This is an outstandingly beautiful cottage. No expense has been spared on the furnishings, beds, kitchen, pain etc etc. Very cosy especially with the wood burner going! Fantastic attention to detail even down to goodies for our four legged friend, Mabel! Ann was a great support to answer questions and recommend restaurants etc etc You can lie in bed and see the sea....perfect!

Attractive little granite cottage on the outside with a pretty garden at the front - then the cliche of 'a hidden gem' becomes a reality, what a find! Beautifully furnished and a joy to spend time in.

Fantastic and incredibly cosy cottage! Loved the fresh flowers and doggie box!

If you don't enjoy staying at this property, I would suggest staying at home.

A charming and very comfortable little cottage.

More spacious than its name suggests!

This is a delightful, warm and cosy cottage. It is beautifully fitted out and decorated and was loved by myself, my husband and just as much by Bob Dog, who particularly loved the log burner and doggy welcome pack! We can’t find fault with it!

We had a perfect week in excellent accommodation. Well equipped, tastefully decorated and the housekeeper was welcoming by text on our arrival. We will come here again as not only is it well appointed , we got married during our stay so it holds lovely memories for us in our favourite part of Cornwall

The perfect cottage if you want to explore the far end of Cornwall

Thimble Cottage is a beautifully renovated cosy cottage.

Thimble Cottage is so very well equipped you want for nothing. The location of Thimble Cottage puts the most beautiful coastline within easy walking distance. The owner should be congratulated for the thought that has gone into making Thimble Cottage a Jewel in the Crown of accommodation to let for family holidays.

A real home from home. Everything about Thimble Cottage was quality and comfort.

Very cosy and dog friendly cottage, beautifully restored and off the beaten track.

Perfectly placed between Penzance and St Ives. The welcome and goodbye messages from Ann the housekeeper were indicative of the warm Cornish welcome we received throughout our visit here wherever we went. The special doggie box and Cornish shortbread were lovely touches. The welcome manual was spot on becoming our little bible for our stay. As we the maps and guidebooks. The cottage was exactly as seen in the pictures. The beds were super comfy and the shower was invigorating. The log burner was the easiest I ever had the pleasure of lighting and most welcome after the many coastal walks you'll inevitably do whilst in this beautiful part of the world. .

very stress free service. easy to understand instructions and helpful friendly approach by staff and in written communications. absolutely lovely, exceeded expectations in equipment, decor and comfort - perfect for us. standard of equipment particularly the bed, bedding and towels! this cottage has definite wow factor. selection and quality of books also very helpful and interesting - loved the info re dog walking and local area. the housekeeper communicated well and in a very friendly manner. honestly it is just perfect.

We had a brilliant holiday. Thimble cottage is a perfect base for exploring this lovely part of Cornwall . And a lovely place to return to after a busy day walking the costal path.
