This could be the absolutely perfect place to stay. Location, views, layout are all superb. Clearly a lot on money was spent on decor, a new kitchen and furnishings some years ago, but the cottage is starting to look rather tired and could do with some improvements. There was also a very strong smell of damp throughout the property, to the extent that we very nearly returned home the next morning. With an abundance of fresh air over few days the smell mostly dissipated, but not completely. There are a number of areas throughout that have damp/mould marks.
The cottage could really do with a deep clean and redecoration, superficially it looks good, but closer inspection reveals quite a bit of dust/staining etc..

Thanks so much for sharing your review of Lofty's Cottage. It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the stunning location and beautiful layout. As you know from our correspondence, we've shared your thoughts about the decor and suggestions for improvements with the owner, and arranged an inspection as soon as possible after your stay. There wasn't any obvious damp found during that inspection but being an older seaside cottage, we recognise that they are best to be well ventilated - especially when the air is warm and moist as it has been this autumn - and we're pleased that this made a difference during your stay. The usual schedule of maintenance will continue now that we're at the end of this very busy season, and any area of wear and tear will be addressed as part of this. We appreciate your suggestions and hope to welcome you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

Although cottage was not advertised with Log Burner, there is one in the cottage but it is out of commission due to a Flue issue, but Classic Cottage brochure shows a picture of the Lounge with the Log Burner working. This may mislead possible hirers.

Lofty's Cottage is in a great location with superb views, especially good at sunrise. We spent a peaceful week in this tranquil and spacious cottage. The garden was lovely - being October we didn't get much use from it but it would be a great place to relax during the summer. We found the owner to be friendly and helpful. Recommended!
Mr Prior September 2020
A great little cottage with wonderful views and garden overlooking the bay in Cadgwith.
Mrs Nagle August 2020
We were very happy with this cottage, the views from the garden lounge and main bedroom were spectacular. We appreciated the fact that the owner called us the day after we arrived to check everything was ok. Good size rooms, very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The only thing that could have added to our experience was if the cottage had a BBQ. Cadgwith itself is very sleepy but lovely and the coastal walks were gorgeous. Our son also loved the cottage and he is 9. He loved the fact that the gardens at the back of the cottages all link up so he was able to play football with the kids staying next door at Pericles Cottage. We loved this cottage and location so much, we are coming back again next easter.

This cottage is very cute small but perfectly formed . The photos don’t really do it justice the view from the front garden is just beautiful. The kitchen is really well kitted out lots of useful gadgets . We bought spices and oil with us and food basics . This cottage is perfect for just wondering to Cadgwith and watching the sea . But also very close to Kynance cove so you can get there early and catch the surf . The owner had some helpful ideas for local trips out . We ate at the halpzaion inn which was great and had super views . The cottage was spotless when we arrived and being able to park in the village car park for free all week took out all the headaches of worrying about the car . I thought the cottage was good value for money because it’s very smart inside . The costal paths are amazing near here . Stock up on food and wine in Helston and your sorted . We went to Porthleven for fish and chips very tasty . Cadgwith is a special little place Luckily it’s nicely hidden away . If you have toddlers with you watch the upstairs windows . Thanks Rodney for letting us stay in your lovely cottage what a beautiful part of the UK ...
Mrs Etien July 2020
We had a wonderful stay at Lofty’s cottage. Cadgwith is a great place to escape the crowd, relax, hike, enjoy the sea and beautiful landscape of the Lizard peninsula. We will be back!
Ms Miller July 2020
Lovely cottage in a great location. It was a great way to escape after months of London lockdown. The cottage is well-equipped and has great views down to Cadgwith which is a postcard-perfect hidden little gem. Cadgwith Cove Inn serves good food in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere while respecting social distancing guidelines.

What a wonderful stay in Lofty´s Cottage! From the very beginning we enjoyed every single day in this warm and cosy cottage. We really felt like being at home, and it was immediately clear that we would like to come back - as soon as possible...! Lofty´s cottage is a real hidden gem and we feel so thankful that we have been part of it...

The cottage is well-placed if you like walking the many and varied coastal paths. A fabulous location for a wonderful, restful holiday.
Mrs Stone September 2018
The cottage is in a lovely location and has a great view of the sea from the living room and main bedroom.
Is very well equipped.
Ms Dodd July 2018
The perfect holiday home for exploring a gorgeous area...
Mr Vanhuele July 2018
We enjoyed our stay. Very well equipped and therefore comfortable cottage. ~ 5Dit part of Cornwall was slightly less crowded than the westernmost piece. Beautiful walks made along the sea and through fields.
Mrs Yates April 2018
Lofty cottage is a home from home. We loved it so much. The view was amazing. We had some quite rough seas and very high tides some days and it was an awesome sight to watch from the windows. Can not wait to return.
Mrs Stone September 2017
Loftys is very well situated with lovely views of the sea even while lying in bed.
Very comfortable place to stay. Home from home. Will definitely return
Mrs Wolfe July 2017
This is a beautiful well appointed holiday home with features and fittings of second home quality. The location and views out are stunning.
Mr Gorst June 2017
Property was thoroughly clean and tidy. Its location is quite stunning - it was our third stay and our two adult daughters were both very keen to join us. We will soon be back for a fourth visit - but please can we have better luck with the weather next time as it rained almost solidly for three of our days! But we still managed to make the most with trips to Falmouth, horse riding at Mullion; meals at the fabulous Cadgwith Cove pub; and carefully timed walks along the coastal path.
Ms Booth June 2017
Great location for exploring this part of the coast and coastal walks. Great views of cadgwith from the bedroom to wake up to. Well equipped cottage with character and charm.
Mr Ritz April 2017
Great place, great location, hidden from the usual tourist route. Genuine old fashioned fishing port, only disadvantage is the lack of a beach for children within walking distance, but is its secret to being a " hidden gem ".
Mr James October 2016
Probably the best view in Cadgwith.
Mrs Stone September 2016
The cottage is in a great location. Has all the amenities you would need for a great stay.
The bed in the main room was very comfortable and fantastic views of the sea
Mrs Barlow September 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Loftys. A very comfortable and very well equipped cottage. Would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends. Wished we could have stayed longer!
Mr Clarke September 2015
excellent veiws from the master bedroom and garden. Local fish available, £5 for 4 x haddock fillets, £10 for a good size lobster. More information on the location of local shops would be helful, for examples its close to the Lizard with ample shops but we didnt realise.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review Lofty's Cottage - you obviously had a great stay, and you don't get fish much fresher than that! Tanya, Customer Support
Miss Owen April 2015
Absolutely loved the cottage! Was perfect! Thought the artwork by artist Andre Ellis was magical - especially the painting in the main bedroom. We have since been in touch with the artist and to find out the piece in the bedroom was commissioned for that room made it even more magical! Very well equipped & very comfortable in every way! Loved it all! Loved the history in the folder about the cottage & the fact that it was re named after lofty! Would love to know more & hope it will be completed as it suggests it will be.
Mrs Foster July 2014
This is a wonderful cottage, it is extremely clean and has everything you should need. The views from the cottage over Cadgwith Cove are amazing. We hope to return one day.
Mr Ritter July 2014
Lofty`s Cottage is probably the most beautiful cottage we ever rented. It is very well equipped and has a fantastic view over Cadgwith.
Ms Fletcher May 2014
Amazing location and a very comfortable cottage. Cosy lounge for colder days and magnificent garden with stunning views for hot sunny days. The kitchen was of a high standard with lovely granite work tops and very well equipped. Brilliant shower in the bathroom - powerful and spacious. We would love to go back sometime soon.
Frau Böning July 2013
It´s a very warm and cosy cottage, very clean and lovly decorated. The view is spectacular. Many thanks for the fish receipes, we tried some - very good!
Mrs Campey June 2013
local pub great food very friedly/great crab at local shop
Mr Macpherson June 2013
A charming well kept cottage in an excellent location for either walking the coastal path or sun bathing on the beaches close by. The cottage is furnished to a high standard with comfortable seating in the lounge. The kitchen is large and well equipped. We were lucky enough to have good weather but since the cottage has the wood burner I think it would be cosy on a cold day. I would definitely recommend this cottage to others and would also add that I have been very impressed with the service from Classic Cottages especially with the contact from the housekeeper.
Mr Berhorn May 2013
Cadgwith was a very nice place to stay and we enjoyed it even more because Lofty's Cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. The descriptions provided in the cottage for installations and such things were very good. We can definitely recommend Lofty's Cottage.
