We absolutely fell in love with this property. We have stayed in various properties around Cornwall and this has to be one of the best .The owners were really friendly and helpful but left us to ourselves unless we needed anything. We are going to return.

The location on the beach was amazing. It was a fun place to stay and the dogs loved the beach. It was nice to fall asleep to the sound of the waves.

What a fantastic location and our hosts were great and very helpful. Where the place is situated was fabulous and we expected to have paths and steps to go down. A lovely place for a holiday, we will go back again.

The location of Beachcomber's Cottage is obviously amazing. It was not an area I had previously visited and now lament how many times I have driven past this area in order to holiday further down in to Cornwall. The owner was exceptionally helpful similarly amazing It was great to find such an incredible bolt hole and to be able to take my two beloved spaniels made it the best UK based holiday I think I can ever remember. True relaxation in its purest form. I had booked to return within minutes of arriving.

The location is fantastic, with unbelievable scenery, the owners are helpful and unobtrusive, the cottage, despite being refurbished was clean and comfortable, and it was an ideal location for our two dogs. It all lived up to our expectations, and would love to visit again.

The location can't be bettered makes the strenuous climb down worth it! We were so lucky with the weather had a really relaxing holiday. The accommodation is cosy welcoming very clean. We really liked having a private seating area outside for al fresco eating etc. Would recommend heartily. A little piece of heaven!

The location of the property is amazing. Not for those that can't cope with the walk down the steep cliff but for those that can - fantastic. The dogs loved playing on the beach which was not crowded, in fact we hardly saw anyone else on it.
June 2011
Fabulous position on the beach. Lovely sound of crashing waves and beach all to ourselves. Nice helpful owner and all very friendly.
Mrs Crockett
October 2011
The wonderful position and view and the fact that it allowed dogs. Bright, friendly and stunning location. The good weather was an unexpected bonus. The winch to deliver and collect luggage etc was an absolute treasure.
June 2011
Fabulous position on the beach with the waves crashing around us when the tide came in. Miles of deserted beach when the tide went out. Can't wait to go back.
Mrs Cummings
July 2011
Everything about this holiday was perfect, from the position of the cottage to the most beautiful outlook. The dogs was made most welcome by the owners of the property and the on-site lifeguards. The owner was always available if we required anything. This could possibly be the most perfect place on earth.

Our stay in Beachcomber's cottage was a very positive experience. We had everything we needed to ensure our stay was comfortable. The fantastic location right on the edge of an unspoiled beach was very special. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, with just the sound of the sea outside the window. Access via a steep climb was a challenge, however, this just added to the remoteness and general atmosphere. We still managed to climb the path everyday to visit the many beauty spots in the area without problems. The owner was unobtrusive but very friendly, and was a great help with our bags at the end of our holiday. He gave us excellent advice and directions including emailing photographs of the pathway down to the cottage and loads of information about local facilities and places to visit. Our two dogs were made welcome and had a blast on the beach every day. The area itself is a plethora of watery inlets to explore and the wildlife is abundant. We found several lovely walks nearby, both along the rugged coastline and across unspoiled countryside. Overall we couldn't have asked for more, can't wait to visit again!

Quite a steep climb up and down the cliff but well worth it once you get to the cottage. Simply a wonderful location so near the sea. All the while i was there i could do nothing but gaze out of the window at the tide coming in and going out. You can always hear the sea even when the tide goes out, you are so close you could almost touch it from the window! Ideal for excercising your dog or yourself along the beach. The kitchen is well equiped to cook dinner every night as long as you take your own food. The owner lives next door and is very helpful and friendly. He will meet you at the top of the cliff and take your luggage down on a winch. There is a co-op 2 miles away in Millbrook to get provisions. Good weather is preferable but even when it rains and is stormy it's nice to watch the sea. Had a brilliant time there.

We stayed at Beechcombers for our honeymoon.Jim and Nina were very friendly and approachable...nothing was too much trouble. The property was very clean and tidy with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The views were absolutely breathtaking. We are definitely going to book to stay in the property again.

A great little place to have a holiday with your dog We took our two staffis who were able to run off the lead on the dog friendly beach. The owners met us on the top of cliff and took our luggage down on a winch. Great idea. The cottage is comfortable and warm, the owners friendly but inconspicuous. Lying in bed we could hear the waves crashing close below at high tide. A very special place

My partner & I stayed at Beachcombers Cottage for a week to celebrate my 50th birthday. Through out my childhood we holidayed at Whitsands & I remembered the beautiful clean, deserted beaches & crystal clear waters. What a relief to find that little has changed over the years, the beaches are still clean & empty & the place is every bit as wild & beautiful as I remembered. Beachcombers Cottage is at the very bottom of the cliff & is accessed via a very steep & uneven path, a torch is a must in the dark. Thankfully we were were met at the top by the owner Jim who winched our luggage down for us. The cottage is set right on the beach & was once a large stone cafe, it has since been converted into cottages (the owners accommodation plus 2 rental cottages). On our arrival there was a birthday card, chocolates & flowers for me which was a lovely touch. The cottage is tastefully decorated in a nautical theme & despite being mid November was cozy & warm. The kitchen is well equipped with essentials like tea, coffee, milk etc provided for you. The light & airy bedroom continues the nautical theme & the bed is extremely comfortable, There's a good size bathroom with a large shower, heated towel rail & underfloor heating & the lounge is also a good size with a corner sofa, electric fire & the usual mod cons. There are numerous places near by to eat out, the Halfway House Inn at Millbrook does particularly good food. I would happily recommend Beachcombers Cottage; great location, welcoming hosts, clean & well maintained & good value for money.

This is a very unique place to stay and it's quite a privilege to spend time here, you cannot get any closer to the sea. Listening to the changing tides, seagulls and watching the clouds and seascape change by the minute was a fantastic experience. Drop your 21st century stresses and strains as you take the steps down the cliff and go with the flow, by the end of the week you will be sad to leave. Travel light is the best advice, it's an adventure getting there and you'll leave fitter than you arrived but you cannot fail to be charmed by this special place.

The place was marvellous. We've enjoyed it very much.

The car has to be left at the top of the cliff, & the cliff path down requires strenuous effort but boy is it worth it! Right by the best sandy beach in the area with the sea lapping beneath the windows at high tide.The cottage is next to the owners take away cafe & living quarters, but still remains private as the entrance is round the side of the building.There is a picnic table & sitting out area overlooking the beach too, where we took all our meals.The cottage is cosy & very clean, with sea views from all windows.The owner Jim is on hand if needed but not intrusive & Nina's fish pie is very tasty! We were extremely lucky with the weather which makes such a difference to this kind of holiday. I wouldn't recommend this as a base for touring the area, simply because of the cliff climb but others are probably fitter than me & prepared to try. All in all, wonderful place to stay for a relaxing holiday-maybe I should have kept it secret!
