The Victorian cast-iron fireplace adds character to the cosy sitting-room as well as additional warmth on those cooler evenings.
The kitchen, complete with farmhouse kitchen table, is extremely well-equipped.

The kitchen is the heart of the cottage and leads to the sitting-room, dining-room and also the utility-room.
The perfect spot for a long meal, what is the rush you are on holiday.
And what a view from the dining-table!
The sitting-room is lovely and cosy, enjoy a glass of wine and good company.

Please highlight that we were delighted that classic cottages had assessed everything, and taken great measures to ensure the cottage was spotlessly clean, and measures had been taken to ensure both guests, housekeeping and owners were safe. We were amazed we were still able to enjoy our usual beautiful cottage with only a few changes. We didnt think this was going to be possible back in June/July. Super to be able to enjoy a little bit of normality, in a very abnormal year. Thank you!

Great views of the full moon shining on sea from the garden.

This is a very charming property with spectacular views of the bay.

Pericles Cottage is so peaceful, it was a pleasure being able to relax in such a tranquil environment. Our two children discovered the joy of leisurely walks and returning to our immaculate cottage. The cottage had been cleaned to perfection.The shower was superb. The view out of the front bedrooms so beautiful, even when the weather is stormy. There is such choice where you can sit and read or talk, or plan, or play card games.There is ample crockery, the dishwasher was so useful and the kitchen was well equipped. We had a couple of BBQs, ate out in local places, and cooked at home. Waking up, making coffee and sitting in the garden admiring the view every morning and planning our days out was just blissful. Can thoroughly recommend.

Charming cottage with amazing views down to the sea from the garden and even while lying in bed in two of the rooms. Great location near to the many beaches and view points on the Lizard Peninsular.

The cottage is lovely with spacious bedrooms and a stunning view! Great location for exploring the Lizard and dinner at the Cadgwith Inn is a must. Hope to return here some day.

Lovely cottage, stunning views and very cosy. Garden also great - perfect for energetic toddlers! We had a brilliant week there and cottage gave us everything we needed.

July 2017

We stayed at Pericles Cottage as a family of 4 and right from the first day on we felt like being in a home away from home. The cottage and property are very well cared for, everything was very clean. Beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the stunning sea views. The house is extremely well equipped. Pericles Cottage is a magic place and Cadgwith is, too. We would love to return.

With the beautiful views and comfortable environment we re-learned the art of doing nothing! Harder than you think but once you get the hang of it you realise what you are missing

Out does expectations. Fabulous property

October 2015

Normally I won't fill out reviews, but we had such a lovely stay at Pericles, I have to make an exemption. The cottage is as nice as described and fully met our expectations. Due to the nice weather we could also make use of the well kept garden, missing only some loungers for sunbathing. I would highly recommend this cottage and Cadgwith and we surely will come back.

September 2015

A wonderful, much loved property with a warm homely feel to it. Like home, but heaps nicer with fantastic views.

Lovely clean cottage in what has to be the most picturesque setting. We had another superb family holiday in Cadgwith - we'll be back!

June 2015

We will come back.

Great house and location, a few minutes from the coast, daily fresh fish - three days here felt like a week elsewhere - very relaxing.

Good view but interior needs renovation especially the bathroom is not up to date anymore No wifi no mobile phone reception

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks for your review of Pericles Cottage. The Owner works hard to continually update and improve the cottage each year, as well as addressing the general end of season maintenance required each winter. It is however a traditional Cornish cottage that is furnished sympathetically to it's origins. The mobile reception in the area can be patchy, as with many parts of Cornwall, but there is a public telephone 300 yards away. Tanya, Customer Support

**UPDATE Spring 2014 WiFi is now available.

**Summer 2014 The bedrooms have been redecorated and new beds provided.

**Spring 2015 The bathroom has been renovated.
