We stayed in the dovecote cottage, which was cosy and nicely converted with all the stone walls exposed and lovely flagstone floors. We were on our honeymoon. The hosts leave nice little touches like a bottle of cava on ice, roses and chocolates and candles lit. The cottage is reasonably basic, a little sink and a toaster and microwave and a small mini fridge. There is no bath, but the shower is a nice large stone tiled one. Do take your own products as no shower products are provided. We also could not find a hair dryer. If it's fine you can cook on the BBQ outside on the little decked yard, where there is also a lovely hot tub. From there are views of the sea and at night great for star watching. The cove is about 25 mins walk down a steep footpath. Lamorna Cove itself isn't very nice, tacky gift shop, cafe, overpriced car park. However, you can start a lovely coast path walk from here and go all the way to Mousehole, a beautiful walk. There were no walking guides left out, which would have been useful. It would have been nice if a few maps were provided for guests to borrow, and guides to the coast path and maybe tips about local walks. Apparently a pub, the Lamorna Wink, is nearby and within walking distance but we didn't know how to walk there. The hosts greeted us on arrival and we didn't see them again. Despite me signing all our email exchanges as ms and ms, as we are a lesbian couple, they kept replying to me as mr and mrs. They seemed slightly shocked when they saw us and did not offer any congratulations despite us booking the cottage for our honeymoon and having come straight from our wedding. However, they explained the basics about the cottage and said we could contact them if needed. The cottage is pretty self explanatory so we actually didn't need to contact them and although we looked for them when we left to say goodbye we couldn't see them though they were around taking care of the other cottages.

Zoe and Phil put their heart and soul into their business and their passion rewards as the three cottages at Lamorna are beyond 5 star luxury.

Natalie and I spent our Honeymoon in Lamorna view. The first night was cold and rainy giving us the perfect excuse to snuggle up on the cuddle couch and light a fire in the burner.

The remainder of our week was warm Cornish days, filled with moonlit nights that cast a silver shimmer across the sea. We spend many an evening in the hot-tub watching stars in the sky with next to no light-pollution. We switched on the TV once and that was it! We spend the rest of the time exploring the many attractions nearby from shopping and Seal watching in St. Ives to catching a play at the stunning Minnack Theatre and spend a delightful afternoon on the world class Porthcurno beach, there are very few beaches in the world that are better!

So many places out that serve great food, Ben's Kitchen @ Marazion and Beach @ Sennen Cove were our favourites.

I do completely understand why so many people come back year after year and so many several times in a year as I know Natalie and I will be one of them.

Room Tip: If you want a private chef book early as Darren from the Wild Larder gets booked up weeks and months...

WOW~!!

Zoe and Phil are the perfect hosts, always available if you need them but new intrusive.
The cottages are amazing, log fires, cuddly sofas, amazing views, super hot tubs. Everything is well thought out with so many little extras which go a long way. We will be back.

We went fishing off a boat the Mermaid and caught some fish for tea, brilliant.

The sea views from the cottages overlooking the cliff top are really beautiful, the ONLY thing you can hear are the birds singing!!

Thank you.

Room Tip: great local shops including a super fish shop just up the road with a blue door ask Zoe

From the minute we stepped into this cottage, we are impressed by the detail and luxury. Zoe and Phil made every effort to make our stay enjoyable, such as recommending places to eat, but also lighting candles by the hot tub for when we returned in the evening, where we enjoyed a star lit sky. We spent time exploring the area and there are some breath taking coves, which look more like Mediterranean with the white sand and clear blue seas. This is a beautiful place to stay, and we would recommend it to anyone.

We have just returned from our wonderful honeymoon in Honey Hedge cottage. The cottage was way beyond our expectations and the the extra touches made by Zoe and Phil made us feel so special. There is not one thing we could fault about the beautiful cottage and the welcome we received, and I would happily go back anytime.
The location is just stunning and even though it was the end of November we had amazing sunsets and views, although we really didn't want to leave the place as the fire, hot tub, bathroom are all so amazing.
I would happily recomend this place to anyone who is after a romantic, luxury and peaceful holiday or honeymoon.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Lamorna View for our first wedding anniversary. Our arrival at the cottage is a moment that we will never forget. We don't want to spoil the surprise for other guests, so we will just say that Zoe and Phil make sure that everything is so special. Our trip was a surprise arranged for me by my husband Neil. Zoe and Phil knew this and ensured that at every stage during the booking process the secret wasn't revealed! It was such a special week. A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location with stunning views and stunning facilities (special mention must be made of the hot tub and bath!) The minute we drove away we missed it all.

A stunning stay in a stunning part of the world. Thank you Zoe and Phil for making our stay perfect.
