We have returned to this cottage for the last 12 plus years. The views are amazing it is really comfortable hence the reason we return.

We have given an excellent rating for everything because it surpassed all our expectations. Unlike other cottages the description of it prior to us going was very accurate. Thank you so much we will be booking through you again.

Surely one of the best locations in Sennen - Choughs in the garden and seals in the bay. Lovely to wake up to the sound of crashing waves.

July 2020

Oyster Catcher is one of the nicest places we have stayed over the years. We love the location anyway but the house itself is really comfortable, very well equipped and spotless.

March 2020

Fantastic location and the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in!

November 2019

The owners have thought of everything for the holiday makers.

September 2019

Love staying in this place and already booked for next year.

April 2019

Bit reluctant to say how wonderful Oystercatcher is because we want to continue holidaying here and don't want others taking our dates.

An immaculate holiday house. Light, bright with the most amazing views of the sea at beautiful Sennen Cove. The owners and housekeeper Pat, always looking for ways to improve the property. It is much appreciated over our many holidays here.

May 2017

We have found Oystercatcher the most peaceful and relaxing holiday home we have ever stayed in, wish we could live there all the time. The sea views change continually, just to sit by the water's edge, or in the lounge looking out at the bay has a lasting calming effect- perfect holiday spot!

April 2017

What can one say even if it blowing a gale and pouring with rain you can sit transfixed with the view out of the picture window.

October 2016

A fantastic view from a lovely holiday cottage. We were sad to say goodbye to the constantly changing scenery.

Now wonder no one has sold these houses for at least 12 years- the wow factor is huge.

Just that whoever goes to Oystercatcher will be in for a lovely home from home holiday and the views just enhance the all round comfort of this spectacular house.

the most beautiful location, very convenient for beach and near pub , fish and chip shop, café and great for coastline walks. And no need to park for beach!!!

June 2015

we love our holidays at the Bosun;s Locker - we have been going there for over a dozen years. The views are sraggeringly beautiful, the house lovely, welcoming and well equipped . Pat is a charming and super efficient housekeeper who is, for us. as much a part of the holiday at Bosun's as the lovely house. Four generations of our family have wonderful and lasting memories of this house by the sea.

The standard of how the cottage is kept cleanliness and ambiance are excellent

July 2014

Brilliant well-equipped property in a breath-taking location and one that once you've discovered it you will want to re-visit year after year.

June 2014

A wonderful position right on the sea front, there is always something to look out at, be it dolphins or gannets diving or fishermen laying crab pots. We have just had a perfect week. The house is spotless the windows are sparkling and the view when you open the door is to die for.

May 2014

This property is in a beautiful position and is decorated to a very high standard. The property is very modern, clean and well equipped. The views from the panoramic window will live with me forever and the sunsets are magnificent. I would certainly recommend this property to my friends and family and will definitely be going back myself

April 2014

This is one of the most comfortable properties we have ever stayed in. The views from the little garden are sublime - most people who see it say "they have never stayed so near to the sea...". If you enjoy walking, wildlife, sealife or just lazing on a chair with a book, this is for you.

September 2013

this property must be seen to be believed the views are fabulous and the cleanliness and attention to making the stay like being in your own home are excellent.

May 2013

We had an excellent holiday
