Porth Nanven Cottage – Guest Comments

A wonderful little cottage in a most beautiful location. Very comfortable, a splendid welcome pack, every convenience on hand and extremely well presented. Our week was enhanced by the best weather of the month. This, together with the ideal location for both beach and costal path runs, enabled the three of us (two + dog) to be out and about every day.

Perfekte Erholung in einzigartiger Landschaft!

Wir haben 2 Wochen im Porth Nanven Cottage verbracht. Das Cottage ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet – zum Wohlfühlen. Außerdem ist das Cottage wunderbar gelegen – direkt hinter dem Haus geht der Coast Path entlang. Sehr zu empfehlen ist die Wanderung von dort in Richtung Sennen Cove. Traumhaft!.

Great location for walkers

Lovely cottage in peaceful location. Beds are very comfy. Great location for walkers with coastal path nearby. Nanven Cove is lovely at sunset and low tide. Perfect for photographers. Pizza from the square in St Just was good and the chip shop at St Just was also good. We had great weather and enjoyed sun filled days at Porthcurno and Sennen. Thanks

Perfect in any weather

The cottage is in a lovely location in its own little valley with a short walk down to a sandy bay at low tide. Great for the kids as there were plenty of rock pools to explore. This stretch of cost between Port Nanven and St Ives is very beautiful and peaceful with plenty of great walking opportunities. A great holiday and particularly liked the light and airy sitting room….perfect in any weather

A very peaceful place to stay

A very peaceful place to stay and we appreciated how well equipped the house is – thank you.
The weather has been a bit better than forecast and we have managed to hunker down here and go exploring, so a lovely weeks holiday all in all. We particularly recommend getting the open top (A3) bus to St Ives but it is busy – a lovely way to see Penwith.

Beautiful and stunning location

Than you very much for providing such a perfect place! We enjoyed the beautiful cottage, completely equipped in the best of taste. We definitely felt at home right away as we were welcomed with clotted cream, scones and red wine.
The superb location right at the coastal path makes it very easy to explore the coast to the north (Cape Cornwall/Pendeen) and to the south (Sennen Cove/Lands End). Thank you as well for the appropriate weather with just one day of rain and a lot of sun otherwise.
We definitely plan come again for long walks in this beautiful and stunning landscape.

A true gem

Our first visit to this cottage and wonderful location, a true ‘Gem’.
After a long journey the cottage offered warmth and a welcome basket including treats for the dogs, we knew then this week was going to be special.
The walks from the cottage are fabulous and worth doing, really enjoyed walking to the Crown Mines. Another was driving to Porthgwarra and then walking to Land’s End, scenery spectacular. You can walk the opposite way also to Porthcurno passing the open air theatre.
Porth Nanven Cottage allowed us to de-stress, unwind, relax and for that I thank you.
