Guests Reviews

We had a wonderful stay at Stennack Cottage. The location was ideal – rural, set back from the road, and a short walk from the beach . The cottage was simply and beautifully done out, with all the amenities we needed to self cater with ease, and with a lovely log burner and delicious homemade treats! We enjoyed a fantastic meal at the Coastguards Inn, and a yummy cream tea at Rosemergy’s. We definitely hope to return, and would highly recommend this cottage to others looking for a relaxing, Cornish bolthole.

We had such a lovely break here. Perfect location right in the heart of atmospheric Poldark country and ideal base for exploring. Walk the SW coastal path or head to either coast for glorious beaches and venture further afield to the lizard peninsula. So nice to feel that after a full day exploring you ‘come home’ to a cosy bolthole. Everything you could possibly need – comfortable bed, great kitchen, even firewood for the wood burner. Extra special by Sonia’s stylish touches on arrival like fresh flowers, homemade lemon drizzle cake and homemade jam and marmalade. Can’t wait to return

This is a lovely, comfortable, quaint cottage where attention to detail is paramount. Sonia has made this place a real ‘home from home’ base from which to explore this most beautiful corner of Cornwall. The parking space in front of the cottage was welcome and the private garden area truly enhanced our visit. This is a convenient spot to reach any of the main attractions of the area but is a peaceful retreat within walking distance of the wonderful south west coastal path & Pendeen lighthouse. We would love to return one day.

The cottage was everything we hoped for and more. It is incredibly pretty from the outside with a lovely front garden, perfect for a cup of tea in the afternoon. The inside is beautifully decorated, clean and cozy with everything you might need. The washing mashine was a special bonus and allowed us to travel with less clothes in the suitcase. Especially convenient when we discovered Sonia’s yummy lemon drizzle cake and marmelade. The leftovers of the latter still fit in our suitcase to bring back to Germany. Also special thanks to both Sonia and Brian for giving us such a warm welcome!

There was a very warm welcome when we arrived at the cottage, homemade lemon drizzle cake, homemade jams, chocolates and lovely fresh flowers. The owner made a real effort to make our holiday feel very special. We stayed for a week, the cottage is small but is decorated very nicely. It is well equipped. Close to a lovely hidden beach Portheras Cove, well worth a visit. There is a lovely friendly seal who loves to come in really close for a look at the visitors on the beach. It is a tricky climb to the beach but well worth it. Walking distant to the Geevo mines. Short drive to Sennen Cov

This was my second visit in 6 months. I was absolutely delighted with Stennack Cottage the first time in October 2015 and this last holiday was no different, from the personal welcome from Sonia the owner who also provides some lovely touches in the form of a range of home made cakes & preserves, flowers & chocolates. The cottage is immaculately clean & has every need catered for. The location on the Tin Coast with its stunning scenery & heritage is fantastic for walkers & many attractions are within a short distance. You don’t have to walk to enjoy this part of Cornwall its all there for you.

We stayed at Stennack Cottage for one week and enjoyed it thoroughly. With its cosy and tasteful interior it is a perfect place for two people sleeping in separate bedrooms or for a couple plus one. On our arrival, Sonia, our host, surprised us with a lovely chocolate cake. We enjoyed walking along the coastal footpath – it is only 2 min to the next footpaths leading to the coast. And coming back from our hikes we often had a cup of tea in the afternoon sun in the cottage’s lovely front garden – well away from the road.

The location of this cottage is excellent, near to local amenities and convenient for the beautiful north coast walks and towns. A lovely environment, both attractive and peaceful. The owner provides everything you need to make this cosy cottage both comfortable and homely, including unexpected treats, which we feel shows care and commitment for making your holiday feel special.
