White, bright, cool and comfortable cottage for two with great views over fields and the sea beyond. The South West coastal path is a few minutes walk away as is the village pub, a great spot to watch the sun set over the ocean.

A beautiful home in a wonderful location close to the sea, and in a rural and peaceful area of Cornwall. Fantastic access to local beaches and to the SW Coast Path! Would highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cosy little hideaway, which suited us well for a short break away. Set in a peaceful, edge-of-village location, it's a great base from which to explore the area. The coastal path is a short walk away and we had a lovely day walking to Porth…

This is an incredible place to stay. Amanda and her family are lovely. There if you need them but also do not bother you if you just want quiet. The property is beautiful throughout and very comfortable. Church Cove and Dola Cove are very near by as is The Lizard and Helston is n…

A lovely cottage for two. Great location for walking on the coastal path, but only a few miles by car to Helston or Porthleven. Welcoming local pub with good food.

Was a really lovely stay overall very clean and welcomed by scones which was a lovely touch. The cottage was very sweet and as expected from pictures. There really was no wifi which was perfect for us as it was a break from the rea world which was lovely but if wifi or service wo…

This is a beautifully decorated and cosy cottage, perfect for exploring South Cornwall. We stayed for one week mid August and absolutely loved it. The cottage was super clean, has everything you need to prepare meals, and a great kitchen/ lounge area to relax. The bedroom is comf…

Great bolthole for exploring. Very well placed for nearby Cornish coves, Helford, The Minack theatre, St. Ives. Ideally located near the beach (take a BBQ) and pub!

Response from Amanda:
I'm sorry The Old Ration Shop didn't live up to your expectations. I didn't do the changeover on the day of your arrival, but I did see it before you arrived and feel your comments are a little strong. Firstly the floors are white painted wood (which were vacuumed and mopped prior to your arrival), no carpets, so therefore there are none that could get dirty, the two rugs are only a month old and when I checked them, they were not dirty. As far as the damp is concerned, this is a 300 year old cottage with cob walls, if you don't open any windows for 5 days, then it may feel damp, especially if you don't open the bathroom window. We have never had any complaints about the travertine tiled floor in the wet room, in fact it was chosen/recommended due to its non slip qualities. We have never supplied extra large towels, because we have never had anyone complain about the ones we supply, which again were new this year. We make it very clear that WiFi is not good here. Most guests ask us before they stay if they need to use it for work, and we are honest and say that maybe they should stay elsewhere if WiFi is very important to them.

We moved to Cornwall from Greenwich London 10 years ago and never looked back. We love it here, life is slower and calmer. We opened Glendower as a B&B initially which was a great success but decided self catering was easier in the long run. We love walking and exploring Cornwall…
