Very well appointed accommodation, in a rural setting.

We loved the location of the cottage, it was ideal for exploring the most southern part of Cornwall and the view from the cottage was lovely. Inside you could not have got a more comfortable place with everything that you need being provided. Liz, the owner welcomed us on our first night and provided a lovely cream tea! We would definitely recommend this cottage - especially if you like cows- which we do!

Es war alles perfekt, bis in Detail. Super eingerichtete Küche, tolle Schlafzimmer, bequeme Betten mit weicher Bettwäsche. Man muss wissen, dass man auf einen bewirtschafteten Bauernhof fährt, die Traktoren somit schon sehr früh rund ums Cottage unterwegs sind. Und Viehtrieb und Kuhmist gehören ebenso dazu. Wir haben das aber sehr genossen und fanden es super interessant. Auch die Einladung der Hosts, sich frei auf dem Hof zu bewegen, um neu geborene Kälbchen anzuschauen war super. Unsere Kinder fanden das großartig. Besonders toll ist es, wenn man morgens aufsteht und die Kühe langsam ihren Weg vor dem Garten Richtung Weide nehmen. Das ist total entspannend. Wir waren in keinster Weise gestört, im Gegenteil. Die Aussicht von dort ist der Hammer.

We had a lovely stay at Parlour Sky. The accommodation was faultless, the view was beautiful and it was in a great location. Although it’s a working dairy farm, we weren’t disturbed by the goings on - think the earliest I heard any noises was at about 7am - and we loved seeing the cows pottering around. We walked from the farm in to Penzance a few times - yes it’s a good 20-25 mins and very hilly on the way back, but as a family of three with a teenage son who are all in to running and hiking, it was spot on for us. We also walked to St Michael’s Mount from the farm and back again once we’d fuelled up with pasties in Marazion. The bus service round the far west is excellent in the summer months, so we did some lovely coastal walks in addition to getting the train to St Ives. Liz is a great host - lovely chatting to her about Cornwall living and getting top tips of things to do. Thank you!

Lovely place with very helpful and friendly owners. A bit cut off as far as walking out was concerned.

Parlour Sky is decorated with flair and is a very comfortable, bright and warm home. It was faultless and Liz was very helpful host without being intrusive. The location…minutes from the sea and Penzance was great. We will return!

Really enjoyed our time at Parlour Sky. Cottage is beautiful and very comfortable. Lovely views and a good location for exploring the area. Owners are friendly and welcoming and do all they can to make your stay as good as possible. We would highly recommend and look forward to returning one day.

Excellent property - couldn’t fault it . We all felt very comfortable staying here . Bright airy property that was crisp and very clean . Would definitely return again and recommend to family and friends . Owners very welcoming , but not intrusive. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay .

Thank you for your wonderful review and for recommending this delightful, comfortable property. We are so pleased you thoroughly enjoyed your holiday, and we hope we can welcome you back very soon. Sarah R, Customer Support

Highly recommend this property for both condition and location.

All in all a really great break from the norm of life, owners could not do enough. Really nice friendly people, beds are very comfy, bathroom is a delight, kitchen lounge and outside space really well thought out, if you are going to Penzance or around the area, this is a really good option to think about, just mind the cat at the bottom of the lane near the first houses you'll meet at it seems to love the sun.

A lovely cottage in a quiet beautiful location with great sea views. The host was friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed a super week at Parlour Sky. The cottage was immaculate in every way. There were beautiful sea views across Mounts Bay from the main living area. The owners were very friendly and called to see that everything was ok. We would highly recommend and hope to return.

Excellent quality and for us location. Very friendly hosts.

We enjoyed a fabulous stay at Parlour Sky over New Year. The cottage is delightful, with stunning views and in a great location for exploring the surrounding countryside. We highly recommend a stay at Parlour Sky.

It sounds like you had a very memorable New Year stay at Parlour Sky! Thanks so much for your lovely comments and recommendation. We're looking forward to welcoming you back. Julie, Customer Support

The cottage is exceptionally clean, well-equipped and comfortable and sits in a wonderful location for visiting local attractions and stunning beach walks. Watching the cows on the working farm was an added bonus!

We enjoyed our stay at Parlour Sky and were very lucky with some exceptional weather for October. The cottage is comfortable with an excellent level of cleanliness. Local walks from the cottage and fairly close to amenities and road links.

We love the location of the property and the high spec inside. Wonderful views as well. Just perfect.

A lovely warm welcome excellent property and lovely views would highly recommend

Parlour Sky exceeded our expectations. Probably the best holiday rental we’ve ever had. Clean and modern. Scones, jam, cream and flowers were a lovely touch.

Had a lovely stay for 2 weeks with our 3 young children.

Hosts close by in case of any issues.

Close to shops and some brilliant beaches.

Lovely to look out at the sea from the living room.

Parlour Sky is one of the top classic cottages we have stayed in, and one which will be added to our 'return to list'. Alan and Jenny,

We had a wonderful stay, the cottage was home from home, and thoroughly lived up to our expectations. The location was perfect and so quiet, very relaxing. The decor was great and every kitchen implement you could think of was provided. Would highly recommend

Lovely cottage - immaculately clean, spacious and with good quality furnishings and appliances. Great location being near amenities but also tucked away down a lane so actually in a quiet, rural setting. Amazing views from living room across Penzance Bay. You do need to like the smell of cows as it really is in the middle of a working dairy farm. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful views Friendly and helpful owners

Any renter should be aware that the cottage is located in the middle of a working farm. This did not detract from our enjoyment of the property and in fact made the stay more interesting. There is a great view of Penzance and the coastline from the large lounge window and the cottage is ideally located for Penzance and the surrounding area. All the rooms are large, very clean and well equipped. There were nice touches from the owner such as flowers, scones and cream left out on arrival. Liz (the farmers wife), called on the first evening to make sure that everything was okay and was available should we have needed anything. Highly recommended and would stay again.

I booked this from reading the description and looking at the photographs on your website. It didn’t let me down, Classic cottages have never let me down! A lovely sea view from which we could see the Scillonian, the cows on the farm and the weather! A great location for taking daily walks along the coast paths. A good choice of supermarkets near by as well. We are regular visitors to Cornwall- no motorways to travel on from home! I will definitely be booking this one again.

Parlour Sky is an exceptional cottage. It is spacious, well decorated, very clean and comfortable.
The photographs on the website really do reflect the high standard of decor (which is not always the case!). We were lucky with the weather and loved sitting in the garden with views over the bay (and watching the cows coming and going for milking!). Wish we were still there!

Lovely sea views from a lovely, modern and well equipped cottage on a working farm. Very friendly and helpful owners. Highly recommend.

We stayed at Parlour Sky for 1 week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The property was extremely clean , furnishings comfortable and excellent quality . The views of the sea from the main living area far exceeded our expectations . We would definitely consider returning and would have no reservations in recommending it as a place to stay .

Spotlessly clean place which was really very well equipped.

Gorgeous property with beautiful views, super comfortable with lots of lovely touches throughout, very well thought out, everything you could wish for or need is provided. Brilliant location for exploring this beautiful area, lots of amenities close by even though you are nestled in a wonderful bit of countryside. Definitely 5 star standard.

Beautiful barn conversion with stunning views. I would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful cottage wonderful location and views . Spotlessly clean very welcoming we had a lovely week didn't want to leave

Beautifully designed barn conversion - very comfortable, with superb view and very welcoming host!

We had a fantastic holiday at Parlour Sky and the cottage was beautiful. We would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone who is thinking of holidaying in Cornwall. There was so much to see and do in the immediate area (and beyond!). The owners, Liz and Gavin, were very friendly and helpful too and we were greeted by fresh flowers and cream tea on arrival. They even bought our baby boy his first bucket and spade for the beach!
