“The best rental we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

People often say you get what you pay for - this is very true of this property.
The view is staggeringly wonderful, a bad weather day is made so much better when watching the crashing waves and driving rain through the windows of this property.
To arrive to a meal ready to cook, to a bottle of bubbly and the place decorated for Christmas is priceless.
The attention to detail is wonderful, the sky tv package, the lovely bedding, the underfloor heating in the bathroom, the huge curved sofa, the dishwasher, the coffee machine and capsules...... I could go on and on.
Sue was wonderful, good company and interested in us. She made us feel very welcome and much appreciated.
This is by far the best rental we have ever used and would love to return again. We cannot fault it and would highly recommend it.
We had a wonderful Christmas / New Year and loved every minute of our time in Cockleshell Cottage.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Everything about this property is lovely. The view is outstanding, pictures don't do justice to the panoramic view across the bay with The Mount ahead and views across to Penzance to the right. The castle was lit up on Sunday night and looked so pretty in the moonlight. The property is beautifully presented and has everything that you could need. Amenities are within a minutes walk, shops, cafes, restaurants and a good pub to sit outside on the way back from a long walk down the beach yet the cottage is tucked away down a quiet lane. We had a great week particularly enjoying breakfasts on the patio. I would recommend a visit to Porthleven, just 15 minutes drive away.

“Amazing view”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from the most relaxing week in Cockleshell cottage. We have stayed in Marazion previously but have to say that Cockleshell is far superior to any other cottage we have stayed in. Everything you need is there - a comfy sofa to chill out on, full sky package so always a movie or box set to watch and the most amazing bathroom. That is wthout mentioning its most amazing feature - THE VIEW! You really can't explain in words how magical it is and its one of the only places i have visited where the photos do not do the reality justice. It meant, even when it was pouring down, we didn't mind because we could just watch the waves crashing on the rocks.
The extra touches like a home cooked meal waiting for you meant this really was a stress free holiday. We would definitely look at booking again and maybe going out of season as Cornwall can be a little crowded in August.

“Luxury property with stunning views.”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife and I have just returned home after a week in this superb luxury property...from first entering and taking in the uninterrupted view of St Michaels mount to leaving a week later we agreed we could not have found a better holiday home. The property is stocked from top to bottom with every conceivable item needed to enjoy a week away from home. A comprehensive Information pack regarding travel, free permit parking, entry time etc. is emailed prior to departure covering all issues that may arise during your stay.
Do not look any further...book this.

“Stunning views, stunning cottage”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What can we say? The uninterrupted view of St Michael's Mount together with the five star luxury of the cottage made this the best place we have ever stayed in the West Country. It was such a treat to arrive to a fully prepared meal after a gruelling journey as well as being provided with all the basic necessities such as milk, butter and bread. Everything in the cottage is of the highest standard ensuring that you feel well and truly pampered. A perfect place to unwind, relax and recharge the batteries. We can't wait to go back.
