Kingfisher Cottage Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
Kingfisher Cottage is a splendid little detached studio-style holiday apartment in a small hamlet close to Pentewan. This cosy Cornwall cottage is stylishly furnished and finished to an exceptional standard and offers all you need for a wonderfully relaxing holiday in a tranquil rural setting close to the coast. The accommodation is compact but superbly well appointed and includes a double bed, a fitted well-equipped kitchen, small dining area and comfortable sitting area. The bathroom has a reviving spa bath and under-floor heating for a touch of luxury. Kingfisher Cottage has all you need for a relaxing holiday in a restful Cornish country setting, just 25 minutes walk from Pentewan beach and the village.

Nestling just behind the sands of Pentewan Beach you will find the charming coastal village of Pentewan. The village has its own good shop and pub, and a beautiful coastal path that runs through the village and climbs the cliffs up towards Mevagissey. Once you reach the top, the stunning views across the bay towards Devon will take your breath away. Mevagissey is three miles distant and has many good restaurants and is well known for its freshly caught local fish, while the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the historic Charlestown harbour are also close by. The fabulous Eden Project, with its incredible biospheres and tropical plants, is just an easy drive away from the lovely holiday village of Pentewan.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

This cottage provided a relaxing two weeks, and the accommodation being so comfortable was a real pleasure to return each evening. The layout and comfort were superb and very well thought out for all even those less mobile . The Eden project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan were brilliant to visit for further visits as were the National Trust gardens and houses. The Polgooth Inn a must for a very good meal as was the Ship Inn. We had a fantastic fortnight and will most definitely be returning, and letting people know about this lovely cottage in such a beautiful place.
September 2013
The service we received from both Sykes and the owners could not have been improved upon. The cottage was superb in every way and was equipped to a very high standard. The location and local amenities could not have been better and the owner was helpful and greatly enhanced our stay with his local knowledge. We can only say a perfect holiday which greatly exceeded our expectations.

Lovely cottage for 2. Nicely furnished and well equipped. Good parking. Great location. There is an easy walk (about 1.5 miles) down a cycle track to the village of Pentewan. Great for an evening stroll. It's also an easy walk to the Lost Gardens of Heligan and from there you could do a loop down to Nevagissey then round the coastal path and back up the path from Penewan. Also good for many other local attractions on the area like the Eden Project. The owners are helpful and friendly and gave lots of advice on what we could do and see. We had a great Holiday and were sad to leave.

Beautiful little warm cottage set away from the road next to the owners property looking onto their lovely garden.Everything in the cottage is of a very high standard e.g..cooker,dishwasher, furnishings and bathroom. The location of the cottage makes it ideal for visiting different areas of Cornwall, The Lost Gardens of Heligan being the highlight of our week. Steve the owner was most helpful even after we locked ourselves out the first evening and a big bonus was making a fuss of their beautiful Cavalier Spaniel Merril.We will definitely return next year
November 2012
Upon arriving we were amazed with the quality of the accomodation. The cottage was immaculately clean and lovely and modern. Every need is catered for and it was a truly wonderful base for our week in Cornwall. The hosts were delightful and so very helpful. The location of the cottage was ideal for travelling around Cornwall with the beautiful village of Mevagissey being just 5 minutes away by car. We simply could not find fault with our stay and were very sad to leave. Looking forward to returning.
December 2011
Small but perfectly formed. Excellent accommodation. Ideal place to rest and relax. Close to Heligan, Eden, Falmouth, and many others. As members of National Trust and English Heritage it was ideal. Owners were brilliant with information - Duchy Garden Centre was a great way to finish our holiday. Minor issues - pub was too far to walk with my knees, and easy chairs were small for my large frame - but these points were inconsequential compared with our cottage and hosts. Would love to go again.
September 2010
Much roomier than first impressions. Very comfortable and clean Excellent kitchen & bathroom. Good location. Small drawback you both had to be up and dressed before you could draw any curtains!
December 2009
The welcome and attention in every way was excellent. The small property was very comfortable and equipped to the highest standard. It was an excellent centre for many gardens including the Eden project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Beaches and countryside were in easy reach, as was the north coast. All the above were the things I liked the most and there was nothing I did not like.
July 2010
We had so looked forward to this holiday as my wife had been through quite a traumatic period after an accident. The place we chose, looked ideal for our needs and sure enough it lived up to every expectation. The owner was very helpful with advise on the area and the weather was perfect. We loved every minute and found some delightful places to visit. We loved it all.
