About Robert and Katharine George
We bought Cormorant in 2005 from a very old and dear friend. Being a real eccentric he loved it in its very rough untouched state. When we bought it we had to do a major renovation as there was no bathroom or loo and not even running water. We were thrilled to own it as many years previously it had been owned by Robert's relatives who were fishermen working in the Cove. For us it meant a lot. We were therefore very keen to keep as many of the traditional features as possible whilst modernising the kitchen and making space for a bathroom. We think it is a wonderful property and we hope you will too.

Lovely house in a great location
We loved St Crys! The owner was friendly and on hand if needed and the house itself is lovely, spacious and walking distance to the pub and local beaches. We took our dogs and the only downside for us was that the garden is beautiful but it is not secure so we had to keep the dogs on leads out there. Overall would definitely recommend this property!
Wish we were there now!
Party of 4 (plus kindly accepted dogs), handsomely accommodated. We've stayed on the Lands End peninsula for years, but never at Treen, and what a delight we've missed!
The house is everything we needed; clean, spacious, fresh, well-equipped. The owners couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. The garden was a delight, perfect for dogs and humans.
The Logan Rock pub in Treen came up trumps on the occasions that we wanted to dine out, and Treen Farm is the source of delicious Guernsey milk for breakfast. Although on our todo list, we regrettably failed to sample tea & cake at the cafe, will do better next time.
Our family have agreed that this is a must-rebook cottage.
Thank you so much for your kind comments. We love it when our guests are as enthusiastic as we are about this very special area. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
We all had a super time
Great house, great location, very peaceful and calm😀
We were so comfortable in St Cyrs I would have liked to take it home with me
We loved staying here
Comfortable house in a great location
We loved St Cyrs House. It was really comfortable and the photos don't do justice to the gorgeous gardens and surroundings. The location was perfect for us - easy access to the beach and coastal path - it was nice not to have to drive everywhere. I had been worried about the closeness to the road but we were not disturbed by the traffic at all. The owners Robert and Kay were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely come back.
Fabulous house and garden
We enjoyed a fabulous week staying at St Cyrs.
The house is spacious, immaculately clean, and comfortable. We found it a bonus to have the bay window at the front, where you can sit and enjoy the view of the beautiful garden until nightfall.
With the warm and sunny weather during our stay, breakfast on the sunny patio, while looking out across that extensive, landscaped garden, was always a good start to the day.
The views from the house and garden are outstanding. From the back of the house, you have direct access to the Penberth valley, and there
is a pleasant walk across the fields from there too.
Located down a driveway with private parking, the house is set back far enough from the B3315 to protect it from traffic noise. Local villages and the A30 are easily accessible by car though.
It's just a short walk of around 10 minutes through Treen village to the coastal path, and from there you are within reach of the many nearby attractions on this stretch of coastline, such as Logan Rock, Pedn Vounder, Porthcurno, the Minack Theatre, Porthchapel and Porthgwarra. After our long journey to the south-west, we particularly appreciated being able to visit all of these places on foot.
Thanks to Robert and Katherine for popping round to make us feel welcome during our stay. We were delighted to be back in west Cornwall this summer, and staying at St Cyrs helped make it a memorable week.
Thank you so much for your kind comments. It gives us great pleasure to know that you have enjoyed our property, the gardens and our wonderful locality.
