“beautiful and peaceful”
Reviewed 3 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

just returned from a week at this lovely cottage with our small dog. Beautiful peaceful location with breathtaking views. With its location it is simple to visit most of this area of Cornwall on both sides of the coast. Met lots of friendly locals and found nearly everywhere very welcoming. Great local walks and great to explore hidden trails and paths. Only downside for me was the bridle path leading up to the cottage which is in a poor state and can only be passed at a snails pace. The other downside for me was that due to visiting at half term most places we went were impossible to get to or stay at. Not anyones fault except our own for picking this week and I would love to visit again at a different time of year.

“Wish we lived here”
Reviewed 26 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

So lucky to find this place with availability in August. My husband and I with our two terriers came to stay hoping for a relaxing getaway from our busy customer facing jobs. Kitts more than met our needs. From the moment we arrived, up the rocky narrow track, we felt at home. Mark and Hayley gave excellent directions and assured us they were on hand if we needed anything.

We were a little late arriving and happy to let ourselves in. Everything was perfect! The cottage is beautiful, cosy and comfortable with all mod cons, without being pretentious or 'boutique' There were vases of beautiful fresh garden flowers in the living room and bedroom and a cream tea left out in the kitchen.

We had some damp weather so lit the log burner a couple of nights. It was a lovely touch that logs, kindling and firelighters were left for us to use. We topped up at Carharrack Animal Feeds a couple of miles away who were very helpful and friendly too.

Me and the dogs absolutely loved the garden - lots of springy grass surrounded by stone hedges smothered in foxgloves, ferns and crocosmia. We sat out on the lawn a couple of evenings and watched the rabbits emerge and bats flit overhead. The stars were stunning!

The kitchen was light and spacious and was easy to cook in. The bed was super comfy with a glorious view out the window. The bathroom was lovely and light with a good shower.

There was a great walk from the cottage up the track to Carn Marth amphitheater which was magical to visit in the mist. Nearby we drove to Mylor and St Anthony, both of which were great for the doggies. We ate out at the Fox & Hounds in Comford, The Coppice in Lanner and the Star Inn in St Day, all were dog friendly and great meals out.

We all felt very much at home at Kitts and it was a great wrench to leave. It was such a calming and rejuvenating time that I promptly informed my husband that he would be taking me here again next year for my birthday!

“Kitts Cottage warm cosy and perfect!”
Reviewed 14 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had the most amazing stay at Kitts Cottage. We stayed a week for New Years and arrived in the dark, after a long 7 hour journey! Mark and Hayley's directions were spot on! Although there is a long uphill road and a bridle path to be driven up towards the cottage, we managed just fine.
We woke up the next day from our cosy bed and saw the most amazing sunrise and landscape across Cornwall! Kitts cottage is just beautiful and cosy. Sitting high on the hill surrounded by fields. The lounge has a big fireplace where we sat most evenings after our walks with the dog, eating drinking and playing games. The kitchen is surprisingly large, brand new and had all mod cons.
The local pub was just a 5 min drive away and we also went into St Ives a few times, which is only 15 mins away.
We had such a lovely time here, despite the rain and will definitely love to visit Kitts Cottage again one summer!
Many thanks Mark and Hayley for the clean, spotless, homely welcome! The mince pies and wine were a big hit!
Julie and family

“What a cosy place!”
Reviewed 14 January 2016 for a stay in July 2015

This cottage is a little gem! Hayley gave us such a warm welcome that we felt at home from the first minute. With the Cornish drizzle outside, we appreciated the warm fire and the cosy place even more. Thank you Hayley, for your enthusiasm.
