Just spent a wonderful week at Windmills at Praa Sands booked through Phay at Stylish Cornish Cottages. Everything about this holiday from booking through to the comfort of our stay was 1st class. Phay made booking very easy and answered all my questions. Windmills is a gorgeous apartment in a great location for peace and tranquility with glimpses of the beautiful Praa Sands beach and sea. An absolute bonus to be able to walk to the beach and the local eating places. there are two approximately 10-15 mins walk down the Cornish lane.The attention to detail was excellent, the apartment was very well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday and more.We received a gorgeous welcome pack as we were one of the first few guests staying at Windmills and even Molly our dog was left treats! From dog towel to beach towels, games, books and the most gorgeous shower gel so much thought and care went into making our stay just perfect.We absolutely loved our stay here and will definitely be back and have no hesitation in recommending Stylish Cornish Cottages.

I have stayed many times at Porth Nanven Cottage over the years. It is situated in a stunning position tucked under the coastal path, left to Sennen and right to Zennor, perfect for walkers. It is also near a small beach which is lovely for swimming at low tide. The house is comfortable and very well equipped with high quality bedding and furnishings. The Cot Valley is beautiful and quiet, except for birdsong. Another plus is the very friendly and helpful owners who live nearby. It is a beautiful place which I highly recommend.

This cottage is the perfect getaway in the perfect Cornwall village. Comfortable and cozy with a great location (including parking ... a rare commodity in Mousehole) and an excellent kitchen. The little seaview yard is delightful.

It’s a real struggle to write a review as I don’t want too many more people knowing about this beautiful place for fear of it being booked up! But SCC are brilliant, Phay always looks after us perfectly and the house is just my favourite place in the world, nothing beats those views to wake up to. We all love it so much.

Yet another wonderful annual stay at Rinsey Head; surely the finest situated house in Cornwall, looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean, with The Lizard on one side and Mousehole and Newlyn on the other! The coastal path running through the grounds, for those who are feeling fit! During the first two weeks this year, we couldn't believe how calm the sea was; it was just like a mill pond, but that all changed in the third week for the usual rough Cornish sea and it's wonderful to watch the waves crashing on the rocks with spray going over the house! Phay always on call to help and we mentioned again that the lounge is crying out for a wood burning stove and the toy size TV could do with expanding a great deal, as it is so difficult to read any text on the screen in that huge room! Here's to next year!

Third visit to Rinsey Head House and we will definitely be back again. Wild weather, bracing coastal walks, sandwiches with freshly caught crab from Newlyn and super pub lunches in Porthleven before returning to the house: warm (thanks to the Aga), cosy and you feel miles from everything, especially at night when the skies light up with a million stars. We love the house, it’s beautifully appointed and you would be hard pushed to find a better location. Wonderful!

5th time staying at the most idyllic location that is Rinsey Head House. Perfectly private and positively peaceful, have loved listening to waves, wind and birds these past 10 days. Views from the property are truly outstanding and the night skies from the terrace are quite breathtaking when clear. The house is very well glazed against the elements and is warm, clean and well-equipped; the kitchen refit is great. A good base to explore the area or relax in peace and quiet away from anyone !The weather was relatively kind. A mixed bag of sun, rain and wind although the elements would never bother us ....... no such thing as the wrong clothing, but do need to dress appropriately for every eventuality at this time of year. This really is on the edge of a cliff !Phay is just the best host - easily contactable and very helpful - nothing is too much trouble. Always makes us (and our dog) feel very welcome with respective treats on arrival.Bring on number 6 visit next year - will definitely be heading back, God willing. Thanks for another great break.

We had the most amazing stay at Mousehole Cottage.The accommodation is spotlessly clean and perfectly positioned away from the hustle and bustle of the village centre, yet within easy reach of all the local amenities.The dogs were made to feel as welcome as me - no silly dog rules, so we could all relax!Huge thanks for a lovely stay - we’ll definitely be back one day.

For the second year running we have enjoyed an idyllic family holiday in this lovelycottage. For us the main attraction is its location. Being right in the heart of Mousehole is great ... with just a few minutes stroll down to the harbour and excellent restaurants. The house itself is well equiped and very comfortable - with the huge bonus of a parking space. We would love to return next year !

This is the second consecutive year that we have stayed at Brook Cottage and we love it so much that we hope to stay again in 2024.Brook Cottage is beautifully comfortable with magical gardens, and an elevated decking that provides stunning views over Cot Valley. The sunsets are truly something to behold!This year, we had fantastic weather and took trips to St Just, Mousehole and St Ives, as well as enjoying the sun and surf on Sennen Cove Beach.Brook Cottage is a wonderful place to relax and to appreciate the Cornish landscape - highly recommended!

Stylish Cornish Cottages have a unique collection of houses on their books, and have always been brilliant to deal with. We have stayed at Rinsey 3 times, and there is nowhere like it.

We stayed in the Lesceave Farmhouse. Beautiful home in the most perfect and quiet location. We felt at home immediately. House had so many warm touches - the games kept us busy when the weather was less favourable. The garden was beautiful and great to play in. The beds were very comfortable. It is an area with beautiful walks on either side out of the property. The area has so much natural beauty and so many ways to keep us all busy. Would love to come again! Thanks so much for hosting us!

We love the Cot Valley and have stayed in various other rentals there before. Brook Cottage is outstanding. What a view from the balcony and what a fantastic garden (a river runs through it). The house is high spec but above all it is the light that really struck me. Huge patio doors and the use of mirrors mean that it is bright and lovely even in dull weather (and believe me, we had some). You can just fall out of the door and walk down to the beach or up the lane to St Just for the shopping. We could very happily have parked on arrival and not used the car again all week. (St Just is really well connected via various buses.) I rather liked the lived in quality of Brook Cottage. It felt comfortable.

Our first stay in West Cornwall and the Barn at Ashton was a fantastic place to stay and a base to explore. Outside is safe and spacious, with a big garden for the children to play in. Inside the bedrooms are a good size and beds comfortable, there is a well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and also a utility area with washing machine. Welcome gifts were a lovely thought and it was great that high chair and travel cot were provided. Despite inclement weather, we plan on returning to explore more of this area in the future and would be more than happy to stay at the Barn again.

We stayed at Rinsey Head at the end of June. Truly breathtaking location - we loved sitting on the terrace overlooking and overhanging the sea. The house is really comfortable and well appointed and we hope to return. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Just back from a wonderful week in Brook Cottage near St Just. Quiet, characterful, comfortable house set in beautiful surroundings, yet walking distance from the beach, the coast path and the amenities of St Just. We loved the garden going down to the Brook and the deck to eat out on. Perfect.

Our family stayed at the delightful Barn in Ashton. The Barn is very comfortable has all the amenities you need, a great deal of space a wonderful wood burner and a lovely garden. There were many thoughtful touches like the welcome basket, fresh flowers and blankets and treats for the dogs. It is very conveniently situated for coastal walks and the lovely beach at Praa Sands, the very picturesque town of Porthleven is just a short drive away. Highly recommended and we will certainly be returning !

We stayed at Mousehole Cottage at October half term. Absolutely beautiful accommodation. Everything needed for a very comfortable family holiday.Location was superb. Literally 2 mins walk to harbour. Own parking space was a real bonus in Mousehole. All enjoyed watching an Otter from the back garden and of course, the seals were pretty much always around.Kitchen well equipped. Lovely and warm. Beds really comfy.Communication with Phay absolutely first rate. Prompt replies and very friendly.As a family we all agreed we would definitely stay again.

Mousehole CottageThis October 2022 is my second stay at Mousehole Cottage with my family.The cottage is not just any place where to stay for a holiday, it is in fact an exceptionally cosy place, a really well-kept home, clean, well furnished, comfortable, relaxing and with various delicate touches. Everything about the cottage has been well thought out and also offers a dedicated parking space.All popular attractions in that part of Cornwall are within easy reach of the cottage. Close by, within walking distance, there are three good restaurants, attractive small shops, tea rooms and a pub.Even the cottage outside stone masonry, with its embedded quartz crystals sparkling in the sun or under the street light at night, adds to a sense of magic! It’s an absolutely lovely cottage, a bijou!If you are looking for a relaxing holiday this is definitely the destination to go for.P. Cammisa

The whole organisation and conversation with Stylish Cornish Cottages was perfect!

Had a great week in Cornwall 26th Aug - 2nd Sept. Stayed in the Summer House in Mousehole. Great service and communications from Phay at Stylish Cornish Cottages. John, Karen and family that own the Summer House and live next door were very friendly and accommodating. The Summer House is in a fab spot and really is a home-from-home just a short walk in to the beautiful fishing village of Mousehole.We loved the pool and had much fun playing football and tennis with the children. We will definitely return. Mark, Anna, Mollie, Aus and our amazing dog Ziggy .

Just returned from an amazing week at Rinsey Head House. Words can’t describe the panoramic view from the patio. The house is warm, cozy and just a fabulous place to spend a week. Love the Aga. Managed to spot a couple of whales whilst there. Thank you Phay for sorting everything out.

We have just returned from a lovely sunny stay at the Summer House in Mousehole. We are a family of 5 and it was the perfect base for us. The children loved the football pitch and swimming pool and we were only a short walk from the village/harbour. We would 100% recommend a stay here and would not hesitate in booking through Stylish Cornish Cottages in the future.

We stayed at Mousehole Cottage. Very clean and comfortable; cozy to be in; good example of new construction that blends very nicely with the surrounding older properties. Beds were very comfortable though always confirm you are getting a queen bed if thats what you need. Manager was very helpful and cottage was prepped well. View of sea is somewhat blocked so, again, confirm details before booking.

We have been visiting this part of Cornwall for 10 years and just love it. When booking with Stylish Cornish Cottages you know your accommodation is going to be spot on and the extras left upon arrival make the holiday start with a bang. Phay and her team ensure everything is as it should be and more.
Just returned from a relaxing break away at the home from home that is The Little Barn near Goldsithney. We had a fabulous short break with amazing spring sunshine. The Little Barn is well placed to explore glorious West Cornwall and is a spacious yet cosy retreat to come ‘home’ to after walking the south west coast paths that are within easy reach. We had a lovely walk along Praa Sands - dog friendly at this time of year - we explored Porthleven as well as the wonderful Gwithian beach to the North. Thank you for our delicious home made cornish cream tea on arrival and the thoughtful - as well as environmentally kind - plastic free alternatives provided for our use in the well equipped kitchen. We hope to return.

We stayed a week at Rinsey Head House. Photos cannot fully capture the incredible views you see from almost every room in this house. It is a breathtaking experience. The house is getting on for a hundred years old and still retains some lovely features like the granite fire surround and window frames, yet it still has the necessary modern conveniences.The water system has its idiosyncrasies and learning to cook with an AGA was a new challenge but the house is warm and comfortable and clean and surprisingly quiet, given the wind and wave activity outside. You can’t let unaccompanied small children or dogs outside because you really are on the edge of a (very solid and stable) granite cliff. So maybe not the best place for a young family holiday. It is what it is. The most spectacular location we’ve ever encountered.As for StylishCornishCottages, Phay lives close by and was very helpful and quick to respond when we needed assistance. Thank you Phay. We had a great holiday.
