The accommodation was first class with first class fixtures and fittings. The kitchen had everything you need for cooking a full meal. The towels, bed and bedding was so comfortable. When we arrived there was a nice piece of home made cake which was a very nice welcome. The views were amazing and hard to take your eyes off. It will be even better when the car charger is working. We could get a charge at Cawsands car park which is approximately 10 minute drive, so it was not a problem. The lane down to the property is not for the faint hearted. We drove down very slowly so there was no problem.

We so appreciate you sharing your wonderful review, it sounds as though you had a fabulous stay in this lovely retreat. Tanya, Customer Support

Lovely cottage for complete escapism, delightful views and fresh air. Walks on Coast Path directly from cottage. Pretty villages of Kingsand and Cawsand with their easy beaches and historic scenery within driving and walking distance.

View is outstanding. Location excellent for wedding at The Fort. EV charger out of use. However, public chargers available at Cawsands car park (Swarco E.Connect).

More spacious than it looked from the photos and very well equipped. Had everything we needed for self catering.

Peaceful location with wonderful views. Not easy to drive to as extremely narrow path to property. Not as clean as expected

The cliffside location really does offer the most spectacular views of Whitsand Bay and the Cornish Coast and we're thrilled you enjoyed your stay. We're sorry if the cleanliness wasn't quite up to standard and we'll be sure to follow this up with the housekeeping team. Julie, Customer Support

Beautiful cottage with stunning views. Very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Enjoyed coastal walks to nearby villages at Kingsand and Cawsand. Warm welcome in the local pubs.

The Hideaway is comfortable with everything you need.

The position and view are wonderful.

The owner is very welcoming and helpful.

In all it is the perfect place for a peaceful and relaxing break.

This is a fantastic location with sea views straight outside your patio doors. Great accommodation which was so convenient for a wedding at the Fort with just a short pathway there. Had some great weather and sunsets just relaxing on the patio with a glass of wine and complimentary cake (thankyou Caroline).

This proved to be a very comfortable cottage with wonderful sea views. The lovely laid back villages of Cawsand and Kingsand are only a few minutes away by car

My wife and I enjoyed a long weekend at The Hideaway, very relaxing with wonderful views of the bay. We even ventured down on to the beach at low tide, although this is down a winding narrow path and you need to go over the rocks to get to the sea, but it was enjoyable. The cottage was clean and comfortable, had all the equipment we needed, it was a joy to sit outside on the raised deck listening to the waves below. On arrival we were left some cake which was delicious and this went down well with a cup of tea. The owner came to say hello the first morning and to check we had everything we needed. The garden was well kept too and had seats to use if you wanted. Parking space was welcome. We were visited each day by the owners dog and cat, the latter stayed for cuddles which pleased my wife. There are good walks along the coastal path right alongside the cottage. The track leading to the cottage is on the steep and bumpy side, but if you drive slowly it is okay

I would recommend this property for anyone. This most certainly lived up to what was advertised.

The venue was excellent wished we could have stayed longer. Very comfortable and well kitted out. The views were suburb.

A lovely "hideaway" with wonderful views and a warm welcome.

Would recommend this property for any one who loves walking, peace and quiet.

The Hideway position is amazing. Such a lovely little gem. The layout of the accommodation is excellent, cosy and functional. Well appointed kitchen. Since Classic Cottages has taken over a number of details which made this Cottage a five star one have been very sadly lost.

A beautiful cottage and location with very friendly and welcoming hosts. We would definitely stay at the Hideaway again!

Lovely, well equipped cottage with a great view, particularly when the sun comes out! A great location for costal walks and short distance to the beach. Other seaside villages not too far away with good pubs/restaurants.

The Hideaway is situated in a stunning position with views from everywhere, even in bed! From the moment we walked round the corner to arrive at the cottage we were in love with it and the accommodation exceeded our expectations. There are wonderful walks from the doorstep and there is a small beach very near the property, if you don't mind a steep walk down and up on a narrow footpath. We cannot recommend this property highly enough and made sure we made our booking for next year as soon as we got home.
