Mark from Barnsley stayed at Lighthouse Cottage for 7 nights in July
Had a lovely stay in the Lighthouse cottage. It's location is ideal if your planning traveling around Cornwall to visit all the lovely places and the accommodation provides plenty of space. The only thing missing was a freezer compartment in the fridge so we couldn't keep our ice packs cool, but the cottage has everything else you could wish for.

Guest from Leigh-on-sea stayed at Lighthouse Cottage for 7 nights in July
The location (close to Truro), sleeping capacity and price were our prime considerations when choosing this property. All the many other benefits came as a bonus, especially the attentiveness of the owners John and Jill in ensuring our stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as they could possibly make it. We love Cornwall, and would recommend this cottage to anyone else who wants to see as much of the county as they can.

Guest from West Byfleet stayed at Lighthouse Cottage for 3 nights in May
A truly stunning and beautiful cottage, with wonderful light, and all home comforts, with easy access to all the magical places that Cornwall provides. We cannot fault this fantastic cottage, and staying in Cornwall is good for the soul, and a joy. Would recommend this cottage to all ages, ideal for a relaxing stay, or a very busy active one like we had. The owners are helpful and very friendly, you couldn't ask for more. We'd love to come back again very soon.

Customer testimonials

Lighthouse Cottage was a delightful property located just north of Truro and central to all coastlines and areas of interest. The owners were very friendly and helpful and made sure our week in Cornwall (my first) was one to remember. The grounds are well cared for and beautiful. A Japanese garden sits next to a Buddha garden looking out over fields of cauliflower in a quiet country setting.
A Tancread, Jun 2013
We both had a lovely holiday, the owners were really welcoming and the cottage was found in perfection condition! The location was ideal as we wanted somewhere quite central so we could travel around the various coasts of Cornwall without difficulty!
Mrs Parry , Jul 2012
We just want to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at Lighthouse Cottage. The owners were kind and helpful (even offering to tumble dry our washing for us!) yet they were not all intrusive. The weather was mixed to put it mildly..but we really enjoyed ourselves. This group of cottages is so well located for touring Cornwall and yet tucked away in a quiet location. We have absolutely no grumbles whatsoever and in fact would love to go there again. Thank you also, your agency is very efficient.


B and D Twine, Jun 2011
We had a great holiday in Cornwall - the booking process was easy the location and comfort of Lighthouse Cottage was excellent and our 'hosts' were helpful and welcoming.
Miss Hogg, Oct 2010
We had a great stay at the cottage. The property was very well supplied with materials, was very comfortable, and was ideally located for us to sally forth in all directions for our all-too-brief stay in Cornwall. John
& Jill were excellent hosts.
