We stayed at the Flower House for a week having travelled from Edinburgh for my partner's 60th birthday. The refurbishment of the barn or stable to transform it into the Flower House has been very tastefully done and the house is perfect for two people without being in any way cramped. The bed was comfortable and the living area attractive. There are indeed flowers outside and house and Claudine had left a vase of fesh flowers inside along with a bottle of wine and a pint of milk. The Flower House is perfectly situated to explore south Cornwall and has a parking space which is not always easy to come by in this part of the country. Cornwall is the perfect example of what a seaside area should be like and the Flower House has a holiday atmosphere that adds to the experience. If you are in the area try the fantastic fish and chips from Newlyn's only fish and chip shop, a stone's throw from the harbour. I would definitely recommend the Flower House to any couple wanting a romantic getaway in Cornwall.

As delightful as ever
This is now our fourth stay at The Flower House and, as before, we were not disappointed.

Although it has now been established for four years, The Flower House looks as pristine and fresh as it did from our first visit soon after Claudine Sear, the owner, opened her lovely self catering venue.

We very much appreciate so many aspects of The Flower House – the lovely feeling of space which the lounge and dining area provides and the very comfy bed to mention just a couple and, of course, the wonderful hosting which Claudine provides.

We look forward to our next visit.

Me and my partner visited The Flower House from the 14th-16th February 2014. With the weather not being on our side on arrival we were very glad as to how accommodating Claudine was in making sure we were welcomed and comfortable before leaving us to our own devices. It was clear to see how well loved the property was. All rooms were immaculate and beautiful decorated with that all important holiday feel.
It was soon clear how close we were to so many local amenities and attractions. A local pub and a decent size TESCO was useful for the nights we didn't fancy braving being out and about! The Flower House comes with a fully equipped kitchen, very useful for those evenings when you fancy a quiet one in. The feature which made the accommodation most cosy was the log burner. Plenty logs and materials were left for us to enjoy the warmth at a cooler time of the year.
On the Saturday we made a lovely trip to Lands End which took us all of 20 minutes or so from the Flower House. That evening we decided to adventure to a restaurant Claudine had kindly recommended called The Bakehouse. The food was mouth watering and the return taxi services were a pleasure and hassle free.
This is a perfect getaway. If you are after relaxation with the choice of making adventures during the stay then this is the place for you. Me and my partner are certainly considering a further cheeky visit in the near future!

Thank you for your fantastic hospitality Claudine!

“Just like in the photos”

The Flower House is a beautiful little house. It always seems that the photos of a place are misleading but we were delighted to find the Flower House to be just as beautiful as it was in the photos. We phoned Claudine at the last minute to check availability for the next few days. (It was in the off season). Fortunately it was available and she quickly readied the house for us. She had a fire going for us when we arrived and had left a nice bottle of wine. We really enjoyed our three day stay. The bed was so comfortable with very nice linens. The kitchen was wonderfully equipped. We enjoyed sitting in front of the fire in the evenings. THe location is great...wonderful for day trips to different parts of Cornwall. The positive reviews here are spot on. It's really a wonderful property and I would recommend it to anyone. I wish we could have stayed a few days longer.

“Beautiful!!!!”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My partner and I stayed in the The Flower House for 4 days. Claudine was welcoming but let us to it which was perfect.
The location of the property was excellent and was around 20mins from Lands End and St Ives, 40 mins from Lizards Point and 5 mins from Penzance.

There's not much in the village of Madron but a taxi cost around £7 into Penzance where there are many lovely restaurants to eat in the evening.

The cottage it's self is beautiful, well equipt with all the things you could need. Kitchen had everything you needed to cook.
It's decorated in a very modern way but has so much character.
There's many small touches which were amazing on a rainy day, including DVDs and DVD player, selection of books and an iPod docking station.

They have a lovely log fire, a basket of logs provided. Also Claudine provides a hair dryer.
A pint a milk and a lovely bottle of red wine was also left for us which was a lovely touch.

The bed is amazing and provided us with the best nights sleep in a long time!!!

Overall we had a lovely stay and will defiantly be returing.

Many thanks to Claudine again
