Where the cottage is makes it easy for visiting lots of lovely places. Not easy if you have problems going up and down stone steps.
lovely spot, very peaceful.
We loved our stay in Cornwall, made better by the cottage. private, peaceful. Clean, well equipped, not a thing we found to complain about.
Good shower, plenty of hot water, good kitchen (we baked bread), makes for a very economical stay to eat in a few times, breakfast in the garden, bird song, a very tranquil stay. we found the heating on when we arrived, which we turned off, the cottage was so cosy.
I think we may well return. scones on arrival, jam and cream, much appreciated Arran. Thank you.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a lovely review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay in Kernyk Cottage. Hope you had a safe journey home and hope to welcome you back in the future.
Excellent short stay at Kernyk Cottage
Kernyk Cottage proved an excellent location from which to visit the attractions of the west end of Cornwall, it was quiet and the facilities were good. We even discovered that that the smoke alarm functioned efficiently when using the grill. There was also a local village pub that gave a warm welcome and evening meals. And the one-track country lanes made for an interesting driving experience.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review for your stay in Kernyk Cottage. Glad you found it a good spot to explore this part of Cornwall from. Apologies about the smoke alarm! I'm sure they have made them more sensitive over the years. We are very lucky to have such a welcoming village pub, glad you enjoyed a visit. Sorry you didn't find it complete value for money, I have to say I think 19.95 per person, per 24 hrs for everything including the wifi, towels, heating, electric and a whole cottage is pretty good value. Bed & Breakfast for one is £70 & upwards per night per person. Hope your journey home went well.
Absolutely wonderful, the perfect getaway!
Not only was this an excellent find, everything about the cottage is Cornish, from the narrow roads that the Romans never attempted to the granite steps that lead you down to the cottage. Most locations to visit were only 20 minutes away, including Asda for everything that I forgot to pack. The owners are very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Looking to book again! Thank you to the Middleton family.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a lovely review for Kernyk Cottage. So glad to hear that you enjoyed Cornwall and Kernyk Cottage too. It is in the perfect spot to explore the South West of Cornwall and peaceful too. Hope to welcome you again
one of the cleanest cottages i have stayed in and that is a lot over the years. It would have been nice to see our host, it was only next door. local pub very cliquey. The steps at the cottage are challenging to say the least , not a place for children or anyone infirm.ALL considered its very clean and comfortable and good value for money. the other rental properties on the farm looked very nice also.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to write your review. Hope you had a good journey home with no traffic jams. Very pleased to hear that you found Kernyk lovely and clean, shame you don't always experience this in the places you have stayed in, but a shame you were not so pleased with the location. It is in a good place to explore Cornwall though. I'm very sorry that you found the steps a challenge, that is why I asked Cornwalls Cottages to e mail you and check that you were fine with them as soon as I received your booking, Cornwalls Cottages replied & assured me that said you would be fine. It is why I insist there are photos of them on the web page for people to look at before they book and why I say they are not suitable for young children or anyone unsteady on their feet in the details. Glad you were able to use the easier entrance in from Ruby Cottage. I'm sorry we missed a proper "Hello". When you kindly rang to speak about leaving times, I apologised. I'm afraid the side effects of daily radiotherapy had got the better of me when you were here but I don't tend to explain this to guests as they are on holiday and have far better things to do than listen to excuses from the owner! Life is for living and enjoying.
September break at Kernyk Cottage
The cottage is a lovely traditional stone property but has all the modern gadgets to make the stay a very comfortable one. The bedrooms are light and airy, one with a shower and the other with a bath. I had the best sleep in a long time whilst at the cottage, probably due to the comfy bed and the Cornish air! The living room is cosy and spacious, with a selection of games and books provided by the owners. There is also good wi-fi at the property. The kitchen is well-equipped and has everything you would need. There is a lovely little garden, with a patio and BBQ area. The stone steps going down to the cottage were not a problem for us, once we got used to them. The owner is very approachable and helpful, and having a gorgeous cream tea set out for us on arrival, plus a vase of flowers in the dining room, our holiday got off to a good start. Both my daughter and myself enjoyed our stay at the cottage, and our dog loved the walks down the lanes.
With easy access to Falmouth, attractions such as The National Maritime Museum Falmouth, Rick Steins Fish and Chips on Discovery Quay, Pendennis Castle and even St Mawes Castle via a 20 minute foot ferry, are all within reach. Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and place to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors' lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day a truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events. The beaches at Gyllingvase & Swanpool are coarse sand and are wonderfully sunny south facing spots. You can ride the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens or Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea!
Helston was originally a thriving port, however as the river silted up over the years, this ceased to be. Where the river joins the sea, is now Cornwall's largest freshwater lake. The market town has a mixture of Georgian & Victorian architecture. On Coinagehall Street is the Blue Anchor, originally a rest house for monks, which became a tavern in the 15th century. This is possibly the oldest brewery in the country selling the strong local brew, Spingo. Helston is the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula and to the Helford River, which has some beautiful villages, namely St Anthony in Meneage & Helford Village.
Porthleven is approximate 3.5 miles southwest of Helston. This charming fishing harbour also has world class surf break.
A little further along the coast, towards Penzance is Praa Sands, which has a mile of sandy beach.
North Helford covers the area from Maenporth to Helston and includes places such as Mawnan Smith, Helford Passage, Constantine & Gweek. The area has many delights such as Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, Goonhilly Earth and Satellite Station and The Ferry Boat Inn.
Daphne du Maurier wrote her only romantic novel Frenchmans Creek about the River Helford, and who can blame her, the views really are beautiful. Glendurgan Gardens run by the National Trust hold a 176 year old laurel maze and the 'Giants Stride' swing most popular with children. St Anthony-in-Meneage holds a lovely little church primarily of medieval architecture. Maenporth beach tucked away on the westerly edge of Falmouth Bay boast spectacular views, well worth a visit.
