Booked this cottage again after staying there previously . We found it just as charming as before. The cottage was quiet cold on arrival due to cold spat in weather but once in and settled it soon warmed up . We lit a fire and cottage was really cosy and homely . The cottage has selection of board games which came in very useful in the evenings , having three family generations staying we sat around the coffee table by the fire playing games . We still love the welcome tray on arrival , such a lovely touch .The house is well positioned for visiting all the local sights and the pub over road is added bonus. We always had plenty of hot water for showering , often not the case when six of you are sharing a property . The cottage garden is lovely no matter what the weather and full of birds in the morning. And if you are lucky you will see a couple of bats flying around at dusk and the amazing sunsets. We once again visited our favourite place, taking my son and his partner there for their first ever visit , the fabulous Roskillies Farm . Best Ice cream ever made here and we only know about this hidden gem due to staying at palm cottage .My daughter , whom is autistic loves the cottage and especially the Beatrix Potter room and runs to it as soon as we arrive , she said she missed Palm cottage already as we left. Thank you Michael W once again for letting us stay again.
The very grateful Rolfe family.
My cousin rented this place for a week and I must say we had a wonderful time. It is well-equipped and very neat, the little touches add a special feel to it like you're at home. From the decors, the pictures on the wall even the duvet covers!
It is near the Lizard peninsula, but we also managed to visit the towns of St. Ives, Port of Isaac and Penzance and head home after.
Had another fantastic stay at Palm Cottage this August. My husband, not normally someone who favours returning to places, described walking back into Palm Cottage, as like coming back home. I cannot say enough about how well equipped, how beautifully decorated (with so much local art work and pottery) or how well situated this place is. The Prince of Wales pub, just opposite is brilliant and it was so easy to just pop over for fish and chips on arrival. There are fab beaches; Church Cove, Poldhu and Kynance Cove just 20 minutes away by car and at the end of a day out the cottage is a welcoming and peaceful retreat, whether to sit in the garden and watch the sun set or playing cards or one of the games provided in the lounge. There are shops in St. Keverne or Helston to pick up supplies. We had an enjoyable stop off at Roskillys ice cream parlour too one day- their fudge is incredible!! This is such an ideal spot to explore The Lizard from but more than that, It's all the little touches; the kettle filled and warm on arrival with yummy biscuits and milk in the fridge to greet you that make this feel less of a holiday rental and more your very own, Cornish home from home.
Just returned from a lovely week at Palm Cottage. It's bigger than the photos suggest and very cosy and a great central base for our holiday on the Lizard. The pub across the road is delightful and worth a visit.
A couple of things to bear in mind - the cottage has handy parking but the drive is tricky to reverse into, although we managed without incident. And bear in mind thin floors and wall means you can here everything from the living room in the main bedroom. It didn't matter to us though and it wouldn't put me off recommending the cottage to others.
we had a great stay from walking in the door to leaving the perfect holiday home with style. Great garden and location although parking a bit tight. good location to explore the Lizard and down to Lands End. the cottage was relaxing and fully equipped.
My love affair with Cornwall began in my childhood when my Parents would take my siblings and I every summer for our holidays. So it was very natural to want to give my own children the same experiences and to build happy memories. I came upon this superb cottage by chance and ever since it is the only place I will go to when I book a holiday. It is absolutely beautiful, every nook and cranny is taken up with some pretty ornament, attractive lampshades, and it is extremely comfortable and spacious. As soon as I step through the front door I can't help but feel both exhilarated and relaxed at the same time. When we return in the evenings from our days out at the beach it is pure bliss to relax in this gorgeous 'home.'
Words cannot do justice to this very sophisticated, clean, and well looked after cottage. If like me you love The Lizard Penisula, an area of outstanding beauty and you are looking for somewhere to stay that is fabulous, then this is the place for you. And the bonus is you can always go back for another holiday, as in my experience the owners appear to spend alot of their own free time there, ( as read in the visitors book ) and clearly have invested alot of time and effort into maintaining this cottage to a very high standard.
