Riverside Cot - 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.
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!

8/3/14 Wow! how can any other cottages live up to Riverside Cot? Just perfect. Super clean, super snug, a real treat to wake up in the morning in such a homely environment & so lovely to come back to after a day out on our lovely Cornish walks. All the other touches were really thoughtful, thank you to you both 20/10!! many, many thanks.
15/3/14 Well that week went quickly! Another wonderfully relaxing stay in your lovely cottage. Thank you Jan & Dave for once again making our holiday so memorable, with all the little extras & your warm welcome. The cottage has everything we could need & more. Fletcher has had another great holiday, walking on beaches, having pub lunches & generally doing nothing & we have followed his lead. Greyhounds are experts when it comes to relaxing & Riverside Cot is the place to relax! We have never stayed in the same holiday cottage twice-until we came here- & what a pleasure it is to return. We will definitely be back again.
5/4/14 We came to this beautiful cottage for some "me" time for our 50th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed, the cottage & contents exceeded our expectations. Jan & Dave surprised us with flowers, bubbly & chocs for our 50th (such kindness) only found in Cornwall. Many many thanks for a memorable stay, Teddie loved it too. We will be back.
12/4/14 An outstanding holiday cottage where we immediately felt at home, fully equipped with many useful & thoughtful extras, including weekly weather report, radio times & Cornish food treats welcome pack on arrival! We have had a great week, ideal location.

31/5/14 Once again what on earth can I say to eclipse what I have said before. Everything is exceptional & Jan & Dave cannot be beaten for their kindness, thoughtfulness & attention to detail. We count them as our very good friends. The weather has been very kind to us, very little rain. We will be back in October-that says a lot! Brodie says thanks for her treats.
21/6/14 Very well equipped cottage, ideally situated for visiting many beautiful places. The local walks highly recommended. Oscar walked his legs off & is going home for a rest. The weather was perfect all week, pity England's performance in the world cup wasn`t the same. many thanks Jan & Dave for the welcome & continued support.
28/6/14 Very well situated cottage within easy reach of St Ives, Penzance & Marazion. A very warm welcome from Jan & Dave, lovely secluded garden. Weather really hot for the first few days then a few showers. Did lots of walking especially the walk from Sennen cove to Lands end, a great favourite & of course the doggy beaches at St Ives. Tasted all the ciders at the Healey`s cider farm. Always glad to return to Riverside Cottage in the evenings to relax & enjoy this lovely cottage.
5/7/14 We have had a wonderful holiday & have loved staying in your lovely cottage. It is just perfect for all of us. We have been so comfortable- a home from home.

Thank you so much for making our holiday that little bit special- not just for us, but for Boycie & Trigger too.!

15/7/14 We have loved every minute of our holiday. The cottage is so lovely, feels like being at home. Jan & David are the perfect hosts, friendly & there if you should need them. Would definitely recommend Riverside Cottage & Cornwall. It is totally unique, just love it.
26/7/14 What can we say that hasn't already been said. Cottage perfect, spotless, ideal location, cosy, comfortable, weather perfect everyday sunshine. Cornwall- tried to visit everywhere! Try the open top bus to places, it`s great. Had some lovely meals. Welcome-so wonderful-the cottage, the scones, the little touches.
