Riverside Cot - Self catering holiday cottage, Cockwells, Nr Penzance & St Ives, Cornwall, England - Sleeps 2
This delightful holiday cottage is situated in the tiny hamlet of Cockwells, just off the main A30.
Riverside Cot is a traditional, cosy Cornish cottage built in 1880 of granite and stone which provides a high standard of accommodation for two people to relax and enjoy a memorable holiday. With its open beams and granite fireplace this cottage is a Cornish gem.
It is located conveniently close to all transport links and is within walking distance of a convenience store/post office and pub.
If you enjoy walking, there are plenty of public footpaths to explore locally as well as the South West coastal footpath. The National Cycle path route, “the first and last trail” is close by.
The cottage is ideally situated for discovering the many delights that West Cornwall has to offer. Picturesque St Ives with its narrow cobbled streets, Blue Flag awarded beaches and the renowned Tate Modern is only five miles away. Hayle with its golden sands and surf is only four miles. Go west and within a ten minute drive you arrive at Mounts Bay, recently voted one of the most beautiful bays in the world, home to the magical fairytale castle of St Michael's Mount which can be reached by foot via a causeway or if the tide is in by ferry boat.
Continue on and you arrive at the gateway to west Cornwall, Penzance - with its many shops, cafés and restaurants catering for all tastes.
If you wish to explore further afield, Newlyn, Mousehole and the Minack Theatre are a short drive. Lands End is just fourteen miles and to the east is the Eden project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

12/10/13 Thank you Jan & Dave for making us feel so welcome at your lovely,cosy cottage. Although we didn`t need to travel far to find you, we have thoroughly enjoyed our week in this beautiful part of the country. Riverside cot far exceeded our expectations, you have thought of everything. It really has been a home from home for us & Fletcher and a perfect place to relax & spend our 3rd Anniversary with your thoughtful gifts making it extra special-thank you both. We are taking home an exhausted Greyhound, after his visits to the local beaches (and a few pubs!)but fletcher would like to let all your future doggie visitors know that he thought Gwithian Towans is the best beach ever! A fantastic holiday thank you from all three of us.
2/11/13 We have said it all before, everything perfect except the weather which was rather mixed but not cold. Good banter with Dave & Jan who are excellent hosts & couldn`t have done more for us. Back next year! What more can we say?
16/11/13 Lovely afternoon tea on arrival, thank you! This cottage is really cosy, warm & quiet. Loved our stay, although we`re not really on hols. It was lovely to come back to the cottage after all day house hunting. We would highly recommend this cottage to others. Thanks Jan & Dave for being so helpful.
30/11/13 cream tea, fresh flowers & a very warm welcome. Jan & Dave you have the balance just right and you have left nothing to chance. Everything we needed for a perfect stay has been thought of. This Cottage takes some beating, I have never stayed anywhere that feels so warm & snug. It feels as if the cottage wraps itself round you & keeps you safe. Just perfect. I note from the visitors book that you have had many doggy visitors, well you would never know, not a hair inn sight. You could teach Kim & Aggi a thing or two. Very best wishes.
