Riverside Cot - Cockwells, Nr Penzance & St Ives, Cornwall, England - Sleeps 2

Riverside Cot

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.

Riverside Cot is ideal as an all year round holiday rental whether you choose to tour, relax or simply want to escape for some peace and quiet!

Such a beautiful cottage, everything you could wish for, Jan & Dave have both been so kind & helpful, providing a wonderful welcome of cream tea & lovely treats for Scooby.

Thank you for all the welcome presents after our traffic jams, hold ups, the cream tea was just the ticket. we have lovely memories of all our old haunts again refreshed, Penzance, Marazion, Mousehole Newlyn, thank you so much.
13/9/14 We`ve never gone back to the same place more than once, well Riverside Cottage changed that & for the 2nd time this year we`ve spent a great week travelling around Cornwall. You must find if you can the dog friendly beach at Porth Kidney, turn off the road to St Ives at the Badger inn & follow the road to the end, park by the church & the path is in front of you. The dogs loved it, we will be back. Jan & Dave made our stay even more special, a big thank you from all of us.
11/10/14 Absolutely excellent. Attention to the most detailed of needs was provided. Never known so many extras in self catering accommodation. Lucy loved it too.
11/10/14 We arrived at Riverside Cot to be greeted by Jan & Dave the owners, the cottage was all we hoped for, snug & warm, very, very clean, equipped to a very high standard with so many extras you rarely get in self catering. Also a lovely cream tea awaited us & the makings for a cup of tea, even treats for Amber, the garden was very secure for the dog & quiet. We loved our stay & will be back in the spring. Thank you Jan & Dave for making this one of the nicest holidays we have had in a long time.
23/10/14 Our first time in this part of Cornwall & thank you Jan & Dave for making us feel welcome. The cottage was idyllic & everything we hoped for. The beautiful gas fire kept us lovely & warm, the whole place was so well equipped & clean! it was a great holiday as we were situated in an ideal location to visit many different landmarks across Cornwall. The cream tea which welcomed us on arrival topped off the holiday, thank you so much. It was an absolute pleasure staying at Riverside Cot & I hope it is not long before we come back -3 nights is not enough.
1/11/14 As always everything perfect. jan & Dave, you couldn`t do more to make us welcome & then even more to make our stay here perfect. you have tempted us into returning again next year, to which we look forward. Brodie loved the biscuits & would also like to come again next year.
8/11/14 we love this cottage-just perfect for us, and a real treat to return to such cosy comfort every day. Easily amongst the best appointed, spotlessly clean, tidy & well maintained accommodation we have ever stayed in, a real credit to Jan & Dave. We particularly appreciated the generous welcome pack, the extra thoughtfulness of providing not only a weekly weather forecast, a copy of Radio Times, but also doggie treats all things we have never experienced before. Eric our border terrier, worshipped the luxury of the gas fire, many thanks to Jan & Dave for their warm welcome & valuable local knowledge- much appreciated.
3/1/15 Thank you Jan & Dave, we have had another fantastic Christmas/New Year at Riverside Cot. Everything yet again has been perfect & we have really enjoyed, relaxing in this wonderful cottage. Thank you for all the extra`s which you provide to make our stay so special. We are sad to be leaving, but will again start counting the weeks down to spring! Thanks for everything
