The Boatshed is a perfect space for two. The owners are friendly and close by for any local advice. The living area and bedroom are very comfortable and the kitchen well equiped. The location is perfect for exploring South Cornwall, with St Ives and the Lizard both within half an hours drive.

The boat shed is a beautiful place a real home from home. The quality of the property is fantastic with lots of nice little extras. The outdoor space is a real sun trap perfect to catch the evening sun with a glass of wine. The owners were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area and the bottle of chilled fizz in the fridge was a lovely start to the holiday. Great location just a few miles to Penzance. Lots a fantastic little bays perfect for a dip. Already planning a return visit

We had a wonderful week here and would return. Great location for walking the coast and countryside from the door and only short drives to such interesting and beautiful places. Very comfortable accommodation for two, open views from the first floor living room, sunny outside seating areas with happy birds all around, a shop just up the road and places to eat nearby.

A very pleasant, well-equipped, property, but really only suitable for able-bodied visitors.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on The Boatshed. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your helpful comments. I'm sure you'll agree that the stairs to this reverse level property are definitely worth the climb to experience the fabulous views. Julie, Customer Support

The Boatshed was a delight to stay in with it’s modern design and a stunning lounge area that made the most of the far reaching views through the large window. The well chosen furnishings made it comfortable and attractive and you felt that such a lot of thought had gone into the construction and finish of this lovely property. The owners were very friendly and welcoming that lived next door. There was good access to the beautiful coast and beaches nearby and some interesting properties to visit. We really felt refreshed and invigorated after our stay in such an imaginative cottage.

Extremely well thought out accommodation, with everything we could possibly need. Comfortable bed and spacious shower with excellent flow of water. Easy parking, close to property!

A great quiet get away place for two, very well designed and in a great location for exploring the coast and countryside. Lots to do and see, with both coasts easily accessible. Lovely helpful hosts on hand. Would certainly recommend and revisit.

Fantastic little cottage, close to a number of stunning beaches. Our stay was made even better by our brilliant hosts, Ben and Tanea.

Lovely property in quiet location near to beautiful beaches.

Very welcoming, homely cottage in a terrific location. Coastal walks, Penzance, Marizion and Praa Sands are a stones throw away from this secluded bolt hole.

The closest pub is a 2 minute walk and it’s cosy, quaint and value for money.

Great location for an active holiday. Really friendly hosts and nice touch of bubbly on arrival. Good get-away for a couple who like to explore.

Fantastic property. Really comfortable home with everything we needed for a weeks stay. Great location near to the coastal path for access to excellent beaches. Lovely pub near by and good access to public transport. Tanae & Ben are the best hosts, really friendly and on hand to offer excellent tips etc but not intrusive. We hope to return one day.

Perfect cottage in a lovely area !

A wonderful place to stay, lovely welcoming hosts. A beautiful part of Cornwall and really wanted to stay longer to see more

We absolutely loved our stay here. Tanea and Ben have really thought of everything in terms of comfort, functionality and style at the Boatshed, and they were very approachable and friendly too. We loved just relaxing in the lounge area and taking in the view!

The location is great for walks along the southwest coast path, with our favourite beach praa sands not too far away, along with plenty of other coves to explore. Good walking boots are a must to make the most of the path. Would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting an uplifting break in the Cornish countryside.

The location of the Boatshed is excellent for walking/ and driving, to the dozens of beautiful locations in the region. It is a gem of a property, the interior design stunning , and very comfortable. Tanea and Ben, the owners, were next door for any guidance and are lovely people, enabling total privacy when required or friendly chat when we met. We enjoyed a wonderful 5 days with sea air/ sunshine/showers and wind- none of which impacted on our ability ro enjoy every minute. Almost loathe to recommend it so highly as it is an idyllic secret hideaway. Albert and Jane

The property was exactly as described, no hidden surprises or dis appointments, the owners were extremely friendly and helpful and made you feel at ease, nothing seemed too much for them, we will definitely return here. Ideal property Ideal location Value for money without question

The Boathouse was wonderful. It’s beautifully decorated, in a fabulous location and the hosts Tanea and Ben were very welcoming and helpful. Really look forward to staying again some time soon.

The Boatshed is beautifully designed and well appointed in a modern style. The location is perfect for walking the coastal footpath and there are lovely beaches nearby.

Fantastic property with more than we could wish for in terms of facilities etc.. owners are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended!

Wonderful little hideaway in beautiful location, with fantastic and really helpful hosts!

A little slice of chic holiday heaven. The perfect spot for two, from which to explore West Cornwall, wonderful places to visit and all within about 40 minutes drive away. Coming back to The Boatshed after a day out felt like coming home. An immaculate place to stay - modern, equipped with everything you could wish for, and more - and hosts who could not be more accommodating. Highly recommended, the photos don’t do this special little place justice! ??

Wonderful retreat nestled away in a beautiful part of Cornwall. Really appreciated the attention to detail and fab design. Location perfect for coastal walks and places like Marazion and Lands End are a short drive. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

What a fabulous property - we could not believe what a stunning property this is! It was very comfortable. The property was immaculate. The Boatshed is in a fabulous location - and the view from the living room stretches overs the fields and is very impressive. It is also a kilometre walk over country tracks to the sea - walking shoes recommended - and joins the South West Coast Path. Everything in the property has been thought out. It is very comfortable and a lovely escape.

We cannot wait to make a return visit.

Lovely holiday home for two. Well equipped and beautiful decor. Great location close to some of the best beaches.

We had a wonderful stay at the Boatshed. It is a unique house, exceptionally high standard interior and so comfortable and relaxing. The outside terrace and bbq were perfect and our hosts Ben and Tanea were wonderful, so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. There are fantastic beaches nearby and some brilliant bars / restaurants around our "local" Porthleven harbour.
We have fantastic memories of our stay and will be back for sure !! Thankyou Ben and Tanea and Bella !! xx
