This is a lovely cottage that is very comfortable. It's well equipped and very clean. The setting is on a working farm but is very peaceful. It's in a great location within easy access to with side of the cornish coast. You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

A gem of a cottage! Well equipped and really comfortable accommodation. The location for exploring west Cornwall was brilliant. We stayed with our dog and the enclosed garden albeit with a low stone wall, was great for her. We had a relaxing stay and would love to go back!

The cottage is beautiful & very clean, the other cottages also look lovely & a nice little complex off from the farm but for us we were disappointed that there were no safe walks to take our dog without going in the car, there is a farm track but no safe walks the track leads onto a minor road then a busy A road into Hayle, not ideal but this is ouRead morer fault for not researching the area better, wanted to walk to places safely which we couldn't do plus the weather was a mixed bag which didn't help.

Wonderful holiday cottage. A perfect base for walking on the South West Coastal Path from St Agnes Head to Cape Cornwall and The Lizard. I'll be back!

Had a wonderful time at Carnsew Cottage yet again. It is comfy, extremely well equipped, peaceful and it comes with its own private garden with outdoor seating area perfect for summer evenings. Fantastic location on Trenhayle Farm but close enough to enjoy all the amenities Hayle and St Ives have to offer with Train station a few minutes away also.Read more Would highly recommend. Hide

Lovely cosy stone cottage with french doors leading into a private garden, spotlessly clean with quality fixtures and fittings. Would holiday there again.

The cottage was clean. Very well equipped and the bed was very comfortable. The heating system worked well and we had such a comfortable week there. We have stayed in a huge amount of holiday cottages and we rate this as one of the best.

A really lovely little property, with everything that you could ask for. It was well presented, clean and tidy. The welcome pack of scones, jam and clotted cream was very well received.Apart from the weather we had a lovely time and would definitely return.

This is a lovely cosy cottage with all the basics you need and car parking right next to the entrance. Was ideal for my Dog too with the enclosed garden and laminate flooring. The hosts give little touches such as scones on arrival that make you feel welcome. They were also there if I needed anything and were a real help as I was staying during theRead more snow fall and bad weather. You're only a few minutes drive away from beautiful beaches and river walks. Would definitely stay again. Hide

Perfect holiday for relaxing, we had our honeymoon there and couldn't have chose a better place!!

Reviewed by Peter, 19th November 2017

This was a spacious comfortable cottage for the two of us and our dog, Trigger. The decoration was extremely tasteful and the walk in shower wonderful after a brisk chilly walk over the moors or along the cliffs above the waves. I would heartily recommend this cottage as a base for exploring far flung Cornwall.
