    • “Wonderful ans Coup cottage. Feeling like coming home. A quiet place in a landscape that leaves you speechless. Courtesy and frendliness characterize the people we met. Again a very nice holiday.”

    Mr Schuhmann, August 2018

    • “This is a lovely cottage, full of character. We must love it as it's the fourth week we've stayed here in 3 years.”

    Mrs Leddy, London, August 2018

    • “Splatt House is an immaculately clean excellently equipped and well located holiday let. We were 5 adults and enjoyed our stay very much. Beautiful walks right on the doorstep (1.5 mile walk to the best beach in Cornwall down leafy quiet tracks with stunning views) and a very short drive to many other coastal villages and towns, including lovely St. Agnes. We highly recommend. Splatt House is an old rural cottage so be realistic in your expectations; no dishwasher or washing machine and creaky floorboards etc. We loved it.”

    Mrs Whittemore, CHELTENHAM, July 2018

    • “Not only was Splatt house in a perfect location it was an artistic treat! The mosaic flooring downstairs was like being in a sweetie shop, not knowing where to look. Very relaxing atmosphere, buzzards soaring overhead and even a distant peacock! The house had enough room for all six of us plus a very energetic puppy. What a treat! Wished we'd stayed for longer.”

    Mrs Cross, Hythe, July 2018

    • “Was a wonderful cottage, very quirky,and comfortable. Would love to return. The home baking, tea,coffee and milk was a nice surprise. A washing machine would have been usefull during our stay.”

    Mr Dixon, Taranaki, July 2018

    • “This is our first experience of staying in a holiday cottage so had nothing to compare it to. However, despite the weather, we had a lovely stay with our friends. The location was ideal to use as a base for the various places we had planned to visit. The only thing I would suggest is to have additional armchairs instead of the armless easy chairs. It is an experience we would like to repeat.”

    Mr Shephard, SOUTHAMPTON, March 2018

Regional Information

MOUNT HAWKE Porthtowan 2 miles ; St Agnes 2.5 miles ; Truro 7.5 miles Mount Hawke is a small village just outside St Agnes and Porthtowan on the north Cornish coast. Once heavily involved in the local copper mining industry, today Mount Hawke is quiet and mainly residential. There is a church which is dedicated to St John the Baptist, and a very good gastro pub – The Old School Bar & Kitchen – which is, as the name suggests, in a restored, traditional school building. There is also a Post Office, a couple of shops, a primary school, village park and Cornwall’s largest indoor skate park. Porthtowan beach is a pleasant walk from the village, through woodland and a pretty valley, and St Agnes Beacon and the coastal footpath are also within easy reach. Kayak hire and tours are available at St Agnes, as are surf lessons. There are also riding stables at nearby Goonbell, which offer countryside hacks and treks as well as pub hacks, summer picnic rides and children’s Pony Days.
