Coronavirus update


Due to future guidance we may receive from local or national government and health advisers, we may cancel your stay. In those cases you would receive a full refund or credit towards another booking with us.

Stay home, keep others safe!

If you do not believe in following all the Covid rules and restrictions, please do not book this cottage.

You must be registered for track and trace - we have our own QR code in the cottage.

We accept bookings only if all of the guests in the group come from one household not exceeding 4 including infants. All adults over 16 will be required to provide their name and address details and/OR scan our NHS QR code on first entry to the cottage. Extra visitors or guests are not allowed under any circumstances. You must state at the time of booking how many guests there will be and their names. It will not be possible to add guests later. If you book for two guests then ONLY those two guests may enter the property.

We also ask that guests do not put themselves at risk and therefore those guests which arrive after their departure. Face masks should be worn over nose and mouth at all times outside of both your home and ours. Avoid crowded places and take home all your litter from the beach or other places of interest.

We understand that booking a holiday may be a difficult decision for many due to the restrictions of cancellation policies. Please take out a suitable insurance policy before you book. We are offering all new direct bookings (effected by lockdown rules or contracting Covid-19) the flexibility to change their bookings at anytime up to one week before check-in without further charge, or a credit towards a future booking taken within 18 months of cancellation. Our agent's will have their own booking terms.

Our cottage will undergo full sanitization at the end of each stay, however we ask that guests now remove all bedding, towels, bath mats, oven gloves etc and place them in a tied sack at the end of their stay prior to departure. You no longer have to sort the recycling as our waste management company does that for you. So ALL waste now goes into the same dustbin sack, including part-used hand soaps, and tied securely. This will help reduce the risk to our staff and next guests.

Thank you and happy holidays!

Exceeded Expectations (100/100 - Cornish Cotttage Holidays)
Comment: We had a great holiday but I will stick to the cottage and its location. This cottage is an example of extremely careful design, planning and thoughtfulness. All the facilities were well finished and of very high quality. The combination of helpful notes and a most professional handbook about the cottage and its facilities makes everything easy to use to best advantage. Penryn is very well placed for access to Falmouth and its excellent restaurants as well as being within easy reach of several National Trust properties. Cream tea and Red Wine awaited our arrival and this was a nice touch though we were so delighted with the house we almost forgot them.

Comment: Attractive and comfortable cottage, well organised with everything needed provided. Good information and clear instructions sent out in advance by the owners. Penryn itself is not particularly scenic but it made a very convenient base for touring around.

Comment: Parking outside the cottage can be difficult due to steepness of hill.
