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
We had such a lovely week at Bank Cottage! You have created such a beautiful place to stay! We loved looking at the beach from the bay window and sitting up on the roof terrace! We loved it so much we have booked to return next August for 2 weeks!Charlotte Graham and family
What a lovely week we've had! The cottage is beautiful, unspoilt Porthallow Cove has been great and the unexpectedly perfect August sunshine amde the wek speacial. The 5 Pilchards was a handy blessing - everyone very friendly and accomodating.Liz, Patrick, Emily, Janet
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
Thank you so much for a lovely stay - fab cottage, so cosy and comfortable. We had a lovely relaxing time. Visited Helford and The Ferry Inn, Coverack and had lots of fab walks. We will miss that amazing view.Lucy, Ed and Freddie
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
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
I love this place! This is the nicest relaxing holiday I've had in years. Thank you for letting us relax here. Best weather all summer ... and it's Autumn.Jason
