    • “The cottage was very comfortable, very clean . It was a lovely cottage. Beautiful place .we had lovely walks . The pubs were fantastic . We will be back next year. And the people was very friendly”

    Mr Harris, Bristol, October 2018

    • “Beautiful cottage, full of history and charm. Very well equipped and situated in a very convenient location with a public car park nearby. The cottage is only a stone’s throw from the beach and there are other beaches nearby. If you like walking you have come to the right place as there are plenty of scenic walks close by. A glimpse of the sea can be seen from the little garden. There are a few pubs in Cawsand and nearby Kingsand which all serve good food”

    Mrs Mills, St. Austell, September 2018


    Mr Broome, Wolverhampton, September 2018

    • “Cottage is lovely and has everything that we required. We have stayed several times, being honest I would say that there are a few things that need looking into. Lots of chipped mugs and glasses, the kitchen tap that falls apart and the side gate which has a dodgy lock (these were a problem last year too!). However, these are minor things that did not spoil the experience. A lovely place and we would come back again. ***Owner response***I’m glad you found the cottage lovely. We always try to address everything that comes up immediately. We have replaced all the chip mugs and the tap, which has a moving part can become loose on occasion. will be fixed. We are aware the gate can be affected by the weather and can get a bit stiff. We plan to replace this in the Autumn. I’m sorry if this was an inconvenience to you and we look forward to seeing you again.”

    Mrs Mcfarlane, MARLBOROUGH, August 2018

    • “Cousham was a very well stocked cottage with plenty of clean crockery and cutlery and a very effective dishwasher which is an essential in a holiday home in my opinion.The flowers and tea tray were a lovely welcome.The whole place had a very good atmosphere and I will be rebooking. The one disadvantage was that both bathrooms were downstairs and the stairs need care when using but all the other advantages and proximity to the beach far outweigh this disadvantage.”

    Mrs Franks, Buntingford, July 2018

    • “Ideal location in an idyllic place, beaches and 4 pubs, all with food, within minutes walking distance. Having been here for last 4 years a little tired in places and cleanliness on arrival not up to previous years.”

    Mrs Lorne, STEVENAGE, June 2018

    • “It is a lovely cottage very well equipped and in an excellent position for the beach and for the many scenic walks around the area”

    Mrs Nash, Frodsham, June 2018

    • “Superb location .... But maybe people should be made aware that on evenings when it's hot and sunny it can get a little noisy, when people are stood outside the pub the cottage faces the back of .... Not that it bothered us in the slightest, as we were usually there with them :D Only other point maybe, is that we were unaware that there is no access to outside space/garden without going up the staircase ..... a slight problem for us, as our two elderly dogs couldn't manage them, and couldn't join us sitting out. But it didn't spoil our visit at all ....”

    Mr Bickerdike, Rochdale, May 2018

    • “Our second visit to Cousham Cottage and thankfully it lived up to the first. A great little haven tucked away from the whirl of the world. A perfect place to enjoy everything that this part of Cornwall offers.”

    Mr Thompson, BRISTOL, March 2018

    • “Booked at short notice so more complicated than usual, but appreciated owner's flexibility and office staff's patience when I was finding website frustrating... Fab property in brilliant position, really comfortably and stylishly furnished, spotlessly clean - as always in our experience with HH. Lounge appeared much bigger in website photos than it actually was, but we enjoyed its cosiness, it wasn't a problem at all. Only slightly critical comment is that I feel it is misleading and inaccurate to say that heating is included, when we actually needed the wood burner to be warm, and yet only a small quantity of logs, sufficient for one evening, were provided. Re. Feedback being published or not - no preference. Still awaiting notification of return of our deposit.”

    Ms Mckenna, Brighton, March 2018
