A lovely cottage in a wonderful location. Warm, comfortable and very well-equipped with lots of thoughtful touches. The local pub had closed down, but actually the pop-up pub in the village hall was very good and did excellent food.Mr & Mrs Ray And Gill Newport - 11th October 2019
It's the best cottage and view in Porthallow, which is the best village in the Lizard - peaceful, pretty, sheltered, and a great village pub in the hall.Mrs Olivia Hatch - 15th August 2019
Lovely comfortable cottage in a beautiful location. Excellent beach views from cottage with a lovely roof top patio overlooking beach and sea. We had another brilliant holiday there and will definitely be back again for another holiday soon.Mrs Dawn Kingshott - 4th July 2019
A fantastic location for day dreaming especially when sat looking out of the large bay window. Lovely walks straight from the front door. The Five Pilchards and Fat Apples serve very nice food and the locals are friendly and informative. Mr Graeme Raine - 21st February 2019

What better place to spend your 65th birthday. Glorious few days, exceptionally hot for September and the sea lovely and warm. The roof terrace is a fantastic addition. Great good value lunch at the Ferry Boat, then followed by yummy ice cream at Roskilly's on the way back.John and Fiona

Great little cottage, really enjoyed the roof terrace. Found some great little routes along the footpaths, the route to St. Keverne is particularly nice. Would recommend it to other dog owners! Will miss the view and the weather.Tom and Jason Moss the dog
More thanks for a very special stay. We have fallen in love with Porthallow and its people. Wonderfully comfy beds - our lie-ins became record breakingly late. 10/10 for Fat Apple lunches. ;Carolyn and KatyCarolyn and Katy
Thank you for letting us stay in Bank Cottage - it was lovely. We went kayaking in Coverack and coasteering in Falmouth. Returning to the house at the end of the day was bliss - so relaxing looking out of the bay window. Sorry to leave.Lucy, Annabel, Rose and Carl
We had a great time here and love the cottage, the beach, the village etc. We really liked The Shipwright's Arms at Helford, and Coverack was excellent for swimming and water sports. We parked within 20m of Lizard Point, how is that possible? Thanks.Frank, Emma, Jacob and Florence
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely house. I enjoyed staying so very much. I went swimming in the sea every day. My favourite thing was going paddle boarding in Coverack. ;FlorenceFlorence
