Holiday Cottages

Glen Cottage
Accommodation up to 2 people
Family no children
Parking 2 cars
Distance to the sea 3 miles

Reviews: Lots of amazing walks. Fantastic scenery and lovely garden. The property was perfect. There is nothing I would have changed. There is ample parking in the driveway. The owners, who live in the thatched cottage nearby, are very friendly and permit the use of their beautiful landscaped garden. This has some fabulous ponds, shrubs and plants, and guests have the use of a private summerhouse.

Accommodation up to 3 people
Family no under 2’s
Parking 1 car
Distance to the sea Less than 1 mile

Reviews: Thank you for the welcome tray and the flowers. The best priced accommodation we have ever stayed in. One week is too short! It really is a home from home with everything we could possibly need provided. By far the best equipped, central, yet quiet. There are three coves that are easy to walk to from the property. Mullion harbour is a delightful example of a Cornish fishing community.

Accommodation up to 6 people
Family children/babies OK
Parking no
Distance to the sea Less than 100 yards

Reviews: This is a great property with a lot of original features, fantastic view, plus all mod cons. Trevarrow has stood above the beach looking out across the sheltered bay since the 1700's. Roadside parking can be found nearby or in the headland car park.

    Glen Cottage

    Despite only accommodating 7  you also have use of a 8 where you can sit in a private summerhouse and enjoy looking at the ponds, shrubs, and plants.


    You really need to go for more than 9 as there is so much to do here. You don’t really need to take anything with you as everything is 10 . If you like 11 then this is the best place to be.


    Of the three cottages it is the closest to 12 and is the only place where you can take 13 but there is no 14 .
