  • We are returning in December for our 2nd Christmas in Hollies Cottage, beautiful cottages, stunning scenery and a stones throw from gorgeous beaches. Gail & Simon are so welcoming. The garden area is brilliant for dogs and lovely sitting out in the evening with the log burner roaring away listening to the owls. Simply out of this world

  • Lovely upside down cottage [Holllies]. Fab welcome from Gail & Simon. Lovely thoughtful welcome pack including a dog chew for Alfie. Cottage is beautiful, spotless clean & with everything you may need. Close to centre of Perranporth. Fab place. Defo recommend

  • The best holiday we have ever had. Gail and Simon are such superb hosts! They make you feel truly welcome from the second you arrive! The cottage itself is so well done,it's been modernised but keeps its charm all the same. Such a wonderful location, we WILL be back!

  • A nice personal touch to be met by Simon and Gail on arrival. The cottage [Babes] itself is outstanding much larger on the inside than pictures show. Gorgeously decorated and furnished. The welcome hamper provided by Simon and Gail again a lovely personal touch. Very comfortable stay. We came for surf and local beaches Perranporth and Watergate Bay provided great long sunshine days on the beach.
    Coming back to shower and settle down for the evening and enjoy the sunset from the gazebo with a glass or three and a chimena was bliss.
    Really felt like we had a holiday. Have been holidaying in Cornwall for many years now and Babes Cottage is right up there as one of the best.
    We can totally recommend staying at Babes Cottage in fact it simply is a must.

  • A happy time. Friendly hosts, a welcoming family of fledgling swallows over the door. A peaceful setting yet handy for Cornwalls attractions. The cottage is comfortable with all essential facilities.

  • We stayed in Hollies cottage for two weeks in May, absolute bliss!! The cottage itself has everything you need and is lovely. Gail and Simon are excellent hosts with a great sense of humor and an eye for detail. They are very attentive and always there for you if you need anything whasoever. The surroundings (just about anywhere you look in Cornwall) are stunning and everyone is extremely friendly. We are not much of return visitors as the world is just simply too big but we will absolutely make an exception for Cornwall and especially for Gail and Simon. Well done guys ;-)

  • Our second visit here & hopefully not our last. We love the quaintness of the cottage, the beautiful location & it's a great base for exploring Cornwall.

  • We spent a week in Hollies Cottage with our lurcher and had a wonderful time. Located up a tiny track, the cottages are in such a peaceful and rural location yet still handy for the main road to get out and about. The large field is fantastic for the dog with a BBQ and chimenea, all free to use with fuel provided.
    Hollies cottage has a wonderful balcony to enjoy the view and a glass of wine in the sun. Sadly the weather wasn't that great for us but the cottage was a fantastic base for us to go out walking, both from the cottage to get to the shop in Goonhavern (15 min walk the back-way) and by driving out to walk coastal paths especially around Perranporth, St. Agnes, Holywell Bay and Crantock. Hollies Cottage is an upside down cottage so you walk up the steps outside to enter the living room on the second floor which is then open plan to the kitchen diner. There are stairs leading down to the bathroom and bedroom, which has been newly decorated. All spotlessly clean and equipped with everything we needed for our week. We love that it's dog friendly and brought our own blanket throws with us so that our lurcher could lounge on the sofa.
    Gail and Simon were there to welcome us with Buddy the dog and were lovely and friendly. We didn't really see them much as we were out and about most of the time but they were very approachable. We loved the wildlife, hearing owls at night and watching the nesting swallows swooping into their nests on the cottage next door. This was our first time at Hollies and will definitely be returning as we love the area and are thrilled to find a nice cottage to make our base in the future.

  • This was our fifth time visiting, we have stayed in both cottages and received our usual welcome from Gail, Simon and Buddy. The accommodation as always was prepared ready for our arrival to a very high standard and is a perfect location for a relaxing break providing a real home from home where every need is catered for within the cottage. We enjoyed excellent weather which allowed us to walk our dogs through the lanes and fields surrounding the farm along with the usual vast sands of Perranporth beach. Gail and Simon ensure that you feel welcome and comfortable and are always on hand should you need any advice, help or even just a chat about dogs !!! The location of Caerkeif Cottages is close enough to allow you full use of the beach and experience the hustle and bustle of Perranporth but far enough out of town to be quiet and relaxing. It is very easy to travel to anywhere in Cornwall from the site but ensure you leave plenty of time to relax and enjoy the tranquility that is a way of life on Caerkeif Farm. We will definitely be visiting again and would give the accommodation, service and facilities on site five stars out of five.

  • Sehr schöne Unterkunft.
    Hervorragende ruhige Lage, sehr Schönes Ferienhaus, sehr nette Vermieter. Was will man mehr. Zudem sehr zentral in Süd-West Cornwall gelegen und somit sind die schönsten Ziele schnell zu errreichen. Sehr zu empfehlende Unterkunft.

  • Peaceful and relaxing break.
    We spent a week here in September and really enjoyed it. The cottage was very clean and well equipped, the welcome basket on arrival was a lovely treat. The rooms were basically finished but comfortable. We had a few chats with the friendly owners who were keen to make sure we had everything we needed. The cottage is very close to the beach, we walked it one day on the lovely pathways around the area. We got lucky with the weather but would have still had a great time even if if hadn't. The pub in Bolingey is well worth a visit! We would definitely come back again.

  • Superbly clean well equipped self catering cottage. Owners live on site and are the perfect neighbours. There if needed but allow you to enjoy your holiday. Ideal for walking or driving breaks or just sitting in the rather large garden area enjoying the BBQ or peaceful surroundings. We could not fault this cottage and have rebooked this year.
