“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed December 19, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

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.

“cosy cottage and cornish coast paths”
Reviewed October 16, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

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. and all the sorting out with Ellie the owner was easy and lovely.

“A peaceful, well equipped cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I stayed in Grenfells Cottage in July 2015 with my sister and her two children. Everything was perfect. 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. There was even a couple of bottles of wine and vouchers for a meal in one of the pubs in the village. The village is quiet but has a restaurant and pubs and the Geevor Mine is also walkable (and this has a lovey café). 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. We have already booked for next year and are also considering another booking with dog and husband this time. I honestly cannot recommend it highly enough whether you are a family or a couple looking for a country hideaway.

“This cottage has the Wow Factor !”
Reviewed November 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

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 ceilings in the kitchen are low so not ideal for someone who is 6'1 but you get used to it and if they were taller they would take away some of the quaintness. The other members of my family were fine as they are under 5'11 which is the ceiling height in the kitchen. 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. Although we didn't use it, there is a lovely log fire that would be great in the winter months also. All in all there is nothing you could fault with this property at all, it was simply fantastic and well recommended.

“Amazing”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

I found my stay in Grenfell's absolutely amazing! The sense of welcome I received was wonderful after a five hour drive down to Cornwall I was greeted with warm wishes on a card and a sumptuous snack to revive and replenish. I had a truly wonderful time here.... 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. Even tho the weather was foul most days, I didn't feel stuck as there was a real sense of retreat as I melted into the snugness. I would recommend this wonderful cottage with five stars without hesitation.
