Once again had a wonderful week at Oystercatcher and as usual enjoyed every minute. Even the few showers we had didn’t dampen our spirits, - watching the sea, the huge waves breaking on the rocks just yards away kept us enthralled for hours. So many pretty coves to visit nearby, too. We just love this corner of Cornwall.

We don't really want to make a review because it might mean we will not be able to book our holiday because when people come here they will , like us, want to come again.

This is a wonderful holiday cottage in Sennen Cove. The position is wonderful. I could sit and look out of the lounge window for the entire holiday and be perfectly content.

Spotlessly clean, fantastic views, very comfortable. We loved it,

An amazing location. Lovely property, light and airy with fabulous views out to sea. Lots of wildlife with a variety of different birds visiting the garden daily. We had a very relaxing holiday staying in Oystercatcher and I would love to stay here again.

We are so glad to read that you enjoyed the location - Oystercatcher is in a cracking spot. It's great to read that you had a relaxing time and hope you arrived home rejuvenated. We so hope to welcome you back again. Sarah, Customer Support

Excellent week at oystercatcher. Expected rain every day so delighted only to get really wet once! Minor problems dealt with promptly- we’ll be back in 2022

Oystercatcher is my happy place! This was my second visit and already rebooked my third. Truly could not ask for better service, the cottage was spotless, with great communication. Lovely touch with milk wine etc left for us to use.

The location is stunning and everything is as advertised in your details particularly the photo of the seat and table in the garden on the cliff.

Oystercatcher is the perfect holiday home! As soon as you enter: the outlook of the cove, with the constant sound of the sea; the tranquility of being away from a town; along with the comfort of the cottage; relaxes you instantly. Our week was much needed after nearly two years without a holiday and we could not have chosen a more idyllic place.

The cottage has everything that you could wish for and would need - nothing is lacking at all, from a kitchen utensil to a pair of binoculars for looking out to sea! In the current situation, where hygiene and cleanliness is so important, you need not worry; Oystercatcher is spotless, with ample cleaning resources being available when required. Maria, the housekeeper is also easily contactable if necessary, although I doubt you would need to, as everything has been thought of and provided for.

A fantastic holiday at a wonderful location, in the perfect home.

This is a beautiful property in a stunning location that we have returned to many times and it never disappoints.

This was our first opportunity to get away in over 18 months and the property met our highest expectations particularly the wonderful views and convenient location .

Exceeded expectations! We had a wonderful week in this comfortable cottage with breakfast outside admiring the everchanging, exhilarating view every day. The coastal footpath is just out the back and up the hill with fish and chips and pasties a five minute walk away. The weather and wildlife made it perfect! Choughs, badgers and foxes and seals and jolly little fishing boats with flocks of seagulls chugging into the harbour! Cornwall at its most charming. The beach is cleaned by the Atlantic and the sand is soft and white and the sea Carribean blue with perfect surf when the sun shines. What more could anyone want on holiday! We loved it and the cottage made a great base to return to and recharge every day with the Atlantic panorama and sound of the waves just outside the window.

Oystercatchers is a wonderful place to take a holiday with an unmatched view out of the bay window of the whole of Sennen Cove and Cape Cornwall. It is ideal - very comfortable, very well equipped, with a patio only yards from the sea and beautiful walks in all directions. Even if you get a windy, rough day - the great rolling waves going by the window and hitting the rocks and breakwater are spectacular consolation. We are very grateful to the owners and Classic Cottages for the many opportunities we have had to stay in this absolute jewel of a cottage.

Once again really enjoyed our stay. This time we didn’t go far we were so content to relax and enjoy the sea in all it’s moods through the window or sitting in the garden? Oyster archer is such a comfortable place to stay We just walk in, unpack and feel we have been there weeks? Always so clean with everything we need, no matter what the weather is!

Well I have stayed in many cottages. Some have been better decorated. However the location and views of this cottage, blew me away. I seriously did not want to leave.

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.

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.

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

The owners have thought of everything for the holiday makers.

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

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

Oystercatcher is a lovely and well equipped cottage which is always meticulously clean. Its position on the cliff top with stunning sea views make this a very special place indeed.

The 180 view of Sennen Cove is breathtaking in all conditions. The cottage is comfortable, clean and well organised for a holiday.

Always such a wonderful experience to stay at Oystercatcher. The stunning jaw dropping view as you open the front door and a lovely fresh and pretty home welcomes you - holiday begins. We have been returning since the 1990s and have experienced every thoughtful change that the owners have made for their guests. We really appreciate you sharing your lovely holiday home with us all.

We've chosen Oystercatcher because of it's, stunning view over the sea to watch the rolling waves of all it's variety to help you forget your daily troubles, so that you can enjoy your holidays to the full. We had a wonderful stay at Oystercatcher. We're sure we will come back.

Oystercatcher has everything to make for a wonderful holiday, beautifully maintained, and the sea views are awesome.

The views really are breathtaking. Amazing location, great for walks. Sennen has great beach, cafes and pub

A very special holiday location,which we have been lucky enough to enjoy.

A perfect cottage in a wonderful setting.

We have stayed once before and we have just reserved for same time next year . Absolutely fantastic

Amazing, absolutely loved it.

Great location and cottage - a lovely holiday and we will return again.

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.

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!

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.

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

Oystercatcher is the perfect cottage. Stunning location with amazing views. The cottage is comfortable, has everything you could need and spotlessly clean.

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.

Amazing location. Could sit for hours watching the sea.

Perfect location for a relaxing holiday. Real home comforts. Could not have made a better choice.

Pat Spence was, as always, very kind and helpful and it was vey nice to see her again.

Lovely cottage with excellent sea views, easy access to local area.

We love the Bosun's Locker. Beautiful setting and beautifully decorated and furnished.

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!!!

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.

Wonderful accommodation. Absolutely spotless and very comfortable. Beautifully equipped. Brilliant location with stunning views out to sea. Could not fault it. Hope to be back some day.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

We had an excellent holiday
