Beautiful property in a lovely location. We could have stayed forever! So much effort has been made to make the grounds perfect for children and adults to explore together. Perfect for a lockdown break!

October 2016

Gorgeous cottage and beautiful grounds. Perfect for young children and dogs.

September 2016

Big comfortable house with lots of space inside and out, our dog loved being able to roam around the grounds freely. Granddaughter loved the big scarey swing. The house is well equipped with everything you need. Great location but car required to get around.

September 2016

Everything about the cottage was excellent. The whole family enjoyed it, we age range between 24 - 83. Don't want to tell anyone about it as it will make it harder to book again, (that's my selfish side coming out) haha. Serious side, 100% recommend it.

June 2015

A Lovely house off the beaten track but within easy access to ST Ives and surrounding area. The property has lots of amenities and was enjoyed by a party of all ages. The children and dog thoroughly enjoyed racing round the large garden and woods. Don't want to recommend this property as we want to keep it all for ourselves ! Millie x

Golden Cock Cottage is a wonderful place for three generations to spend quality time together. The woodlands are quite unique.

April 2015

Golden Cock Cottage exceeded our expectations, we adored the house but the garden is inadequately titled. This is not a garden; it's a park, and it has something for the whole family. We had our 15 year old girls with us plus one of their friends and despite their teenage years the girls were like young girls,, children again, running through the garden, hide and seek, playing on the swings, finding the hidden den. The garden has a map framed, hanging on the kitchen wall, great fun.

We had a wonderfully memorable week’s holiday here, our biggest mistake; we should have booked another week!

October 2014

An ideal place for family, kids and dogs to stay, highly recommended.

Fabulous place. Very helpful description how to use the facility. The nicest hosts! After many years of very good rental vacations, this was the best rental experience .

April 2014

It's a magical place for all ages. Love this cottage been 3 years on the run and hope to back again, never want to go home.

September 2013

We like the grounds, perfect if you have a dog. It is in a good location for visiting attractions and is big enough for a large family get-together.
