This is the second time we have stayed at Cockleshell Cottage and it won't be our last. From the moment you arrive the views take your breath away. On arrival you have a meal waiting for you to cook and when you leave you get a parting gift with Cornish goodies. We have stayed in many Cottages around the UK but this has to be the best for location and for service. Great to watch people on the causeway to St Michaels Mount from the sofa judging when the tide will be going out and coming in.
Totally recommend this Cottage. Thank You for letting us stay at this amazing place.
Wonderfully situated cottage overlooking St Michael's Mount. The cottage is fitted out to the highest standard, with the bathroom being very luxurious. Helpful and pleasant owners - we really appreciated the gourmet meal that was provided for us on the day of our arrival. Perfect for a break away from the crowds during the winter.
Parked the car for the week and chilled. Wonderful walks along the beach for miles.
Treated ourselves to a meal at Bens Cornish Kitchen. A real treat, perfection.
Cottage was beyond our expectations. Everything you could want and more. Wonderful view too. It was so nice waking from the sound of the waves. We were very lucky with the weather end of Oct early Nov, and sat outside looking over to St. Micheals mount.
The meal waiting for us in the cottage with a bottle of fizz was very welcome after our journey, as was the Cornish goodies on departure. Can't fault the owners and cottage, superb.
Just got back after a fantastic week in a Beautiful cottage overlooking St Micheals mount (WHAT A VIEW) We didn't want to go out in the morning and when we did we always tried to get back before dark so we could enjoy the view of the castle at sunset. The cottage itself is Stunning and everything you could wish for is catered for I highly recommend you book and stay here you won't regret it at all it will probably leave you wanting to come back for more . To be honest I don't know why I'm writing this because it could make it harder for us to book next time and we will definitely be booking again LOVED IT
We had a wonderful time here and were sorry to leave. A warm, comfortable home from home with the added benefit of a stunning view. Upon arrival we found a laid table with a bottle of wine and a prepared meal in the fridge which was excellent. We ate out a couple of times at the Cutty Sark and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Lands End, The Manick Theatre and St Ives all worth a visit but the local area is hard to leave. We were accompanied by a Grey Seal while on a beach walk and the local bird life gave us a lot of pleasure being sable to view them from the lounge. Thank you both.
We spent the most wonderfull week in Cockleshell for our honeymoon.
The location and views are just amazing, we used the terrace every night.
We had an excellent meal waiting for us when we arrived, ans all the little extras were most apprieciated.
The cottage is really close to the local bars and resteraunts which are incedible, the food at Ben's Cornish kitchen is amazing fine dining (you need book though) and the Kings Arms has the most fantastic pub grub.
We cant wait till our return visit, Sue was a lovely host and gave us loads of ideas and advice for day trips.
If you are lucky enough to book this cottage you wont be disapointed, it's the best holiday cottage we've stayed at in the UK
Thanks Sue and Simon for our perfect honeymoon
Pre holiday communications were great and as you approach Marizion and the Mount bursts into view, if you are human, it will take your breath away!
The cottage has everything you need and more and that is not including the view. It would be impossible to tire of watching the changing tides, Horace the seal, a variety of bird life which all play to the backdrop of St Michael's Mount and the daily drama of crossing the causeway before, after or more often than not during the tide flowing back in.
Everybody is so friendly. We felt immediately at home and have rebooked our next week in January to experience it all again in a different season.
Thank Sue and Simon.
