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.
