Shell cottage is well equipped and extremely comfortable in a lovely part of the world

lovely period cottage well suited for 2-3 people.

We’ve just returned from a week’s holiday in Cornwall and our stay at Shell cottage. We were extremely happy with our choice of cottage, Shell cottage was the perfect home from home. Hosts were friendly and on hand should you need anything during our stay.

Cottage provides everything you will need during your stay and tastefully decorated throughout. Shell cottage is a great base for exploring what Cornwall has to offer, with most eastern Cornwall villages within a 20 minute journey. Perfect for us traveling with a small baby.

Loved our week at Shell Cottage with older parents. It felt quite spacious & two toilets upstairs was a bonus! The seniors loved the walk in shower, and the bus stop being a minute away so they could adventure independently. The kitchen had everything we needed & downstairs worked well for meals & cosy evenings. The outside space to the front was very pleasant for morning coffee. The beds were super comfy & it's so quiet that everyone slept well. We parked outside the house all week no problems. Out & about there's so much to see, St Mawes is gorgeous & the nearby coastal walks are spectacular (park for free at Rocky Lane), we loved Trelissick (National Trust), Charlestown & Gorran Haven beach. The circular dog walk from the cottage was perfect for morning or evenings.

It's a lovely holiday cottage: comfortable, inviting, clean and very well equipped. Grampound is a great location to explore Cornwall in all directions but also with a lot of sightseeing attractions nearby. Even beaches at the atlantic coast are reachable in good time. Parking outside next to the front door is no problem. We enjoyed our stay there much.

This cottage was very comfortable, quaint and spacious for our needs and we would definitely stay again when we came down in the future. Even though there was no allocated parking we found no difficulty in parking outside the cottage. The locals were very friendly and the nearby cafe and shop was very useful.

Larger than you think and very well equipped, this cottage is perfectly placed for exploring Roseland and escaping to other parts of Cornwall. A very comfortable stay for our family of four and a dog!

Great holiday - weather was excellent so that always helps. The cottage was everything expected from the description and then more. There were three of us staying, me, my wife and our daughter (30). We had the two single beds made up as a double and the bed was extremely comfortable. There is a spare room upstairs which was convenient for all our excess belongings. There are two toilets, and the shower was fantastic and convenient to use. Downstairs the layout is good, the front room lovely to relax in, and the kitchen is very well equipped. The cottage is in a good location for the village and touring the Roseland peninsular. Would recommend the Kings Arms in Tregony, the Pierhouse in Charlestown, St. Mawes, St. Just-in-Roseland church, and the circular walk from Fowey to Gribbin Head with a stop off for a swim at Polridmouth Cove.

A beautiful cottage ,furnished to a high standard and very spacious. The welcome from the owners was a nice touch . A great location for exploring both North and South Coasts and West Cornwall. Just off the main road but very quiet with no traffic noise. A lovely place to stay and hopefully we will return . Had a great holiday .

An attractive cottage in an excellent central location providing all home comforts for a relaxing holiday.

We really enjoyed our week at Shell Cottage. Very comfy and cozy little place. Peaceful surroundings in a lovely little village with pretty walks close by. Loved the village shop and can highly recommend the Dolphin Inn for great food just a few minutes walk away. Short drive to Charlestown - highly recommend visit to the Shipwreck museum - and Mevagissey. We’d love to come and stay again some day.

A lovely place to stay, spotless, very comfortable and well equipped. Great location too.

Lovely cottage, extremely comfortable and great location for coast and surrounding areas. Parking was always easy for us on the quiet road outside the front of the cottage. All facilities good, dog friendly but be aware there is no washing machine which is important for dog owners particularly if the weather isn’t great.

Shell Cottage is the perfect location for visiting all of Cornwall. Parking outside the property is never a problem. Immaculately clean, welcoming and comfortable. The perfect home from home.

Pretty cottage in a good location for visiting lots of beautiful areas in Cornwall.

Really spacious cottage, lovingly restored by its owners. Well equipped, very clean and comfortable. Perfect base for exploring Cornwall.
