We absolutely loved our week at Marnylunn. A beautiful house set in an equally beautiful location, with stunning views to wake up to, we couldn’t have asked for more. The house was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable We wanted a peaceful holiday and got it. We did take a few trips out to Falmouth and Penzance which were easy to get to by car. The last few miles is down narrow lanes but drive slowly and with care and you will be fine. Owner even texted with some useful information the day before which was nice. Will definitely look to return to Marnylunn.

A beautifully refurbished home in a unique and very peaceful setting. It was amazing to wake up every morning and look down the valley, over the garden, to the boats sitting on the river below. The house is very private but not isolated. It's tucked away down country lanes , so it takes a while to get anywhere. But really, the generous swimming pool, the garden (including fruit and veg to pick), the brilliantly equipped kitchen, the comfy living room, the barbecue and fire pit, the cove at the bottom of the road for swimming, proximity to coast path, and boat hire on the river means you don't need to go anywhere. A really special experience.

This property is beautiful and decorated to a very high standard. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and the bathrooms were spotless. The wifi worked well and information at the property explained everything very clearly. There was also a folder detailing places to visit, restaurants etc which we found very helpful. The kitchen has everything that you need to cook including cake making equipment. We really enjoyed the fresh scones, clotted cream and jam that were waiting for us. We made full use of everything including the fire pit and barbecue. I appreciated the text messages from the owner who was happy to be contacted in addition to the housekeeper Amanda if we needed any information or help with anything. We had an amazing stay at Marnylunn and enjoyed the quieter area of Cornwall where it is located.

We had a lovely week at Marnylunn. Great house, great setting, great pool. The location is a bit out of the way, which on the plus side means it is very quiet and "local" but on the minus side means it is 20 minutes driving to get to a main road. But Flushing Cove, 200m down the lane, is really nice. Helford, 10 minutes drive, is similarly nice. The area is great for walks. For a quiet time away from it all, you couldn't choose a better house.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
