    “The Sykes office staff were excellent (I had a slight issue with having to correct a miss-entered date and it was smoothly dealt with).”

    The paperwork and process to book were all perfect. My only other comments are a bit less positive: 1. No hairdryer 2. It's early winter and cold and the open fire was a drawer to booking the property. It seemed mean that there were only 4 logs and 2 firelighters...especially as the small print reads that 'fuel and power provided'. 3. No oven gloves 4. An observation....we had to bring a bedside lamp downstairs in order to switch the overhead lights off in the evenings. It would be nice if there was an extra lamp downstairs, therefore! Otherwise, a perfect and gorgeous cottage.

The property

With a panoramic seascape including St Michael's Mount and the Lizard, Thurso Cottage is a traditional fisherman's cottage paces from the ocean.

Set over three floors, this retreat is fabulous for family, friends and couples.

In a terrace of traditional granite cottages, it offers well presented refurbished accommodation with an interior fusing style, homely comforts and personality.

The little rear courtyard is a haven for al fresco dining.

The open plan living room centres around the open fireplace, so kick back and cosy up in the cooler months.

With two of the three comfy bedrooms promising big sea vistas over the harbour and around the bay, waking almost ocean-side is a given.

The lively seafaring town of Newlyn, with harbour and one of the UK's largest fishing fleets, is a popular spot with museum and a myriad of craft shops and galleries showcasing local and international artists work.

Enjoy a tasty 'catch of the day' supper from the fresh fish market, or dine out at one of the many restaurants and inns.

Penzance is less than two miles away with promenade and open air Jubilee Swimming Pool, plus mainline train station if you wish to leave the car at home!

Mounts Bay plays host to the most fantastic rambling and cliff top walks!

Head eastwards past Penzance to Marazion with big beach and landmark attraction St Michaels Mount, just five miles away.

The waters here are popular for boating and sailing, with beach for games and picnics.

Westbound, the charismatic coastal village of Mousehole is very quaint with sheltered beach, inns and eateries, plus the stunning Christmas Light festival!

Pedn Vounder Beach and Porthcurno rank among Cornwall's best for golden sand and beautiful blue seas.

Postcard perfect St Ives is a must visit resort, reached within a 30 minute drive.

Thurso Cottage makes a superb base any time of the year!

About the location


St Ives 8 miles.

One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas. The spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves, winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
