“HOLIDAY HEAVEN”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our 2nd visit to cockleshell and just as delightful as we remember.We have had 2 wonderful weeks.It is a very very special place,we call it our peaceful haven.It is impossible not to relax there with the fabulous uninterrupted views from the patio and from the lounge upstairs with its wall of glass.
Blessed with good weather we enjoyed coastal walks at Church cove,Gwithian,Rinsey ,Perranuthnoe and Prussia cove all with stunning views.It was always a plleasure to return to cockleshell to relax,you don"t need to be anywhere else really. A big thankyou to Sue and Simon ,the owners,it was lovely to meet them as we missed them last year.
We were very sad to leave.Cockleshell will always hold a very special place in our hearts and we sincerely hope that we can return at sometime in the future

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

this is just the perfect place to stay a beautiful cottage with so many lovely touches to make you feel at home. A meal ready for you to just put in the oven and a bottle of wine to welcome you after your journey. It is a place where you can just relax and watch the world go by it has such lovely views. And we even had a going away pack of goodies for the journey home.

we arrived to be welcomed by a lovely welcome pack which consisted of bread, butter, milk, tea and coffee and a lovely two course meal of which we had to warm up in the oven. we enjoyed the meal and was a lovely gesture after a long and tiring car journey. The cottage was gorgeous, nicely decorated , spotlessly clean and spectacular views. It had everything we needed to make us feel at home and enjoy our holiday. We loved the bathroom with its rain power shower and jacuzzi bath and all of the lovely toiletries provided. It was very close to the local pubs of which served good food and there was a lovely bakery just around the corner. We woul definately raccomend to our friends and family and would love to have a return visit in the future. We were also blessed with beautiful weather.

We spent a week at Cockleshell Cottage and it was fantastic, the location is excellent, the views of St Michaels Mount were simply stunning. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean, the bed was extremely comfortable , it had everything you would need and more. We had a lovely meal prepared for us, complete with a bottle of wine on our first night, there was milk, tea, coffee, sugar, a loaf of bread and butter all waiting for us on arrival, it really was exceptional service. We cannot wait to go back to Cornwall and we will definitely be booking this beautiful cottage again.

Second time at Cockleshell and can honestly say that it just gets better and better!
Waking up every morning to the view of St Michaels Mount is just amazing.
The cottage itself is extremely well equipped, all mod-cons that you could ever require and helpful and friendly owners on the end of the phone if you need them.
Everything is done with the greatest of detail, from the welcome meal on arrival to a "goody bag" for our journey home. We really cannot fault Cockleshell.
Many thanks again Sue, Simon and the rest of the Cockleshell team.
See you next year

Cockleshell Cottage provided us with a perfect location for a really relaxing break. The views really are stunning and it was tempting to spend the whole week just staring out of the picture windows! However, we also enjoyed eating in the local pubs, cafe's and restaurants which were all of an excellent standard. It was great just to walk on the beach and across the causeway to St Michael's Mount. We were welcomed by a delicious meal ready to put into the oven. The whole cottage was spotless and everything we could possibly need had been provided. We highly recommend this beautiful place:)
