Testimonials for 'Grenfells Cottage'

Please read below the wonderful response we get from the people who stay at Grenfells Cottage. Please don't hesitate to email us with your review to add to the website.


We really enjoyed our stay for a number of reasons. We could walk down the lane to a fascinating coast path and the lane was so pretty with late Spring flowers. We could walk to a pub which served good meals, or to the Field House which served even better meals. We were within a short driving distance of many places of interest.
The cottage was warm, comfortable, well equipped and with artistic and quirky touches. The vouchers and the welcoming bottles of wine were a great touch.
You were a great find!

Thank you

This is our second stay at Grenfells Cottage and hopefully not our last. The owners themselves cannot do enough for you and in fact whilst we were there the bedside light blew so the owner arranged for a local electrician to fix it the same day - what service ! Its extremely homely and cosy and we made full use of the log fire. Low ceilings so tall people need to duck down but its so quaint I would recommend this to anyone, very well stocked and you are left needing nothing at all. Also in a lovely peaceful part of Cornwall but easily accessible to places.

The cottage was great the best equipped cottage i've ever stayed in and it was super cozy and comfortable and had lots of old fashioned charm. As well as this it is perfectly situated, minutes from the cliffs and coastal paths and minutes from 2 fine pubs and short drives or leisurely walks from lots of ruined tin mines and bronze age ruins, and standing stones and local art and cream teas. Perfect.

We loved the cosy sitting room ans the sunny terrance in front of the cottage. Well equiped and well situated for the visit of this very end of England. Great pub and lovely restaurant just around the corner.

The whole cottage was very clean and well presented. It was very well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, an outside utility room with an excellent washing machine and dryer and towels for everyone. The beds were very large and comfortable, even the singles. The living room was really cosy with a wood burning stove and plenty of reading (and drawing) materials all provided. There were two gardens to enjoy relaxing in. We did not bring our dog but it would have been perfect for a dog owner with an enclosed garden and lots of coastal walks surrounding the cottage. I honestly cannot recommend it highly enough whether you are a family or a couple looking for a country hideaway.

Just returned from this truly delightful cottage. It is an old miners cottage and has been tastefully furnished and yet has the old world charm about it still. Very well equipped and whilst it is a little out of the way of the centre of things this is just what we wanted and it is so peaceful and quiet. You can walk down to Levant tin mine and it is only a 10 minute drive to Penzance or 15 mins to St Ives. The owners are lovely and we had regular correspondence prior to our visit and there were 2 complimentary bottles of wine, milk, initial supply of tea, coffee and sugar and some vouchers to use off a meal at a local eating establishment (choice of about 6) which was very generous considering the price of the rental for this property. All in all there is nothing you could fault with this property at all, it was simply fantastic and well recommended.

A truly lovely period themed cottage in the beautiful surrounding location made our stay a wonderful experience. The cottage itself with all it's traditional fixtures and furnishings gave the whole experience a very warm and inviting feel, and to couple this with sea views and location within the village makes a very relaxing holiday.

So peaceful and comfortable with a warmth of atmosphere you find rarely in a holiday let. I really felt Id 'come home' as the arrangement in detail re the furnishings and gorgeous artefacts inside and out were just laid out with such good taste. This all made me want to just relax relax relax. I cannot praise this place enough. I would recommend this wonderful cottage with five stars without hesitation.

The cottage is fantastic, very relaxing location and excellent for walking the cliffs with spectacular views. Very clean and tidy, but has everything you need for a home from home stay,the kitchen has all the bits needed to cook for a family. A lovely touch is the welcome pack and bottles of wine, also gift vouchers for local restaurants,cafes and pubs. Overall our family really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.
