Property Location


Karensa Cottage is situated just one mile from the quaint Cornish village Mawnan Smith, and three miles from the bustling port of Falmouth. Here you will find a host of shops, bars and restaurants, the award winning National Maritime Museum and Trebah Gardens which is not to be missed.

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! There are plenty of places to eat & drink in Falmouth and recently Rick Stein has opened his Fish & Chip Restaurant & Oyster Bar at Discovery Quay adding to the superb mix across the town.

Kerensa Cottage

We felt the accommadation, although comfortable, was a bit overpriced. It would have been nice to have a television in at least one of the bedrooms, so that when people wanted to watch different programmes, they could do so.

Lovely place - easy to access central Cornwall - pool fantastic addition in the heatwave

We really enjoyed our stay - picked it for the ease of getting around this area. The pool was great - only thing that marred it was other residents apparently unable to read about having glasses on poolside and smoking in it which was a bit off putting! the cottage was really comfortable and clean. The site manager attended almost immediately when i contacted him about a couple of minor issues. We would stay again

From the Owner:
Thank you for your nice review. We are glad you had a nice stay and were able to enjoy the facilities regardless of others.

Karensa Cottage

Lovely property with good facilities, the location was a little isolated, with no access to any towns without a vehicle. The facilities on the complex were good although carefully read the rules before booking a few took us by surprise. All in though a really nice place to stay we had a great stay. Thanks

From the Owner:
Thanks for your review Andrew we are glad you enjoyed the property & facilities. As for the rules you mentioned I'm afraid children swimming without adult supervision is not allowed anywhere that I'm aware of. Finally regarding the comments of not being able to leave your dogs alone please see the description that's always been on the property "Up to 2 well behaved dogs are permitted at no additional cost although please remember that you cannot leave dogs unattended in the cottage alone." Hopefully these 2 points didn't put too much of a dampener on your holiday. Many thanks

Visiting Falmouth.

We stayed at this cottage last year and had a few concerns. My wife phoned the agent the week before we went and mentioned our problems from last year. On arrival all our requests.had been acted on. We were very pleased with the customer service and would stay again as this is an excellent location with a lovely pool and jacuzzis to relax in at the end of the day. Thank you.

From the Owner:
Hi Paul, It was me that spoke to your wife and then passed the comments onto the onsite Manager. I'm glad it was all fine upon arrival and you had a nice time. Thanks Jodie

Graduation week and family holiday.

A great location near Falmouth. Plenty of room for five adults and two dogs. Comftable beds. Two good bathrooms. Kitchen utensils were poor quality. Knifes were blunt and metal pan handles got very hot. No dishes to cook food in the oven. This was a shame as we were self catering.

From the Owner:
Thank you for taking the time to review one of our properties. We are glad you had an overall enjoyable experience and with regards to your comments on the kitchen equipment I've forwarded this to the onsite Manger to sort our replacements, sorry about that.

Family of 5

We love the location of the cottage and facilities were excellent. The children absolutely loved the pool and the games room. The cottage itself was very clean and well equipped. The only slight criticisms would be that the downstairs mattress dipped in the middle and as someone who has back problems I found this uncomfortable (I would have changed room but didn't want my 11 yr old sleeping downstairs alone). also I didn't feel comfortable leaving the children to play in the play area as there were 2 dogs that were free roaming on occasion. Not sure if they were the owners and I should mention that they seemed friendly enough.

From the Owner:
Hi Carly, Thanks for taking the time to review one of our properties. After reading your review we have inspected the bed and noticed a broken slat which has now been fixed so hopefully that's that problem solved. The dogs belong to the neighbours and do roam around but are around kids and friendly. Overall we are glad you had an enjoyable stay. Thanks Jodie

Only had one problem which we did not bother to report. Upstairs shower kept turning cold but we just used the downstairs one! Rest of cottage great. Spacious & well equipped.

From the Owner:
Dear Les, Thanks for taking the time to review one of our cottages. We are glad you had an enjoyable stay and look forward to welcoming you back again one day. I will pass your comments of the upstairs shower onto the onsite manager to take a look at. Many thanks

November at Tresooth Barns

2 of us stayed here for a week at the end of November while visiting family. The barn sleeps 6 which would have been a crush with a single kitchen/dining/ living room. The onsite manager was very helpful when we had trouble with the heating. For future guests the kitchen knives would benefit from sharpening and a measuring jug and kitchen scales would be useful additions. A convenient, quiet location

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Stayed at Karensa Cottage for 1 week in September 2015. Know the area so knew what to expect in terms of surroundings. Cottage was very clean and well provided with all that one could need. Couldn't really ask for anything else except slightly better weather! Would probably book again. Just a couple of points that may interest the owner. Outside entry exit door woodwork could do with a spruce up to be more "welcoming". Curtain or some such over upstairs door to the outside would have been nice for one's modesty coming out of the bathroom.

From the Owner:
Thank you for taking the time to review one of our cottages. We are pleased you had an enjoyable stay and have noted your comments. I've added it to our improvements file which we will take a look at moving forward. Thanks

Great complex

Karensa cottage is in a nice little complex with adequate parking. All the units were dog friendly and this aided a chat with the neighbours without being in each others pocket. The location was fine and the cottage completely adequate. We felt home from home. The pool and hot tub were great.WE enjoyed our stay.

Very pleasant,comfortable stay.

Overall a convenient and comfortable cottage although lacking in natural light,making it rather dark. Kitchen area well provided for, although the dining table surface needs attention.The downstairs bedroom has no hanging space at all which is a bit inconvenient. The upstairs batrhroom cistern handle needed repairing when we arrived - we repaired it temporarily, but it needs attention. The main settee is becoming very worn in places. The initial directions to the cottage were rather vague without the aid of a satnav.

From the Owner:
Thank you for taking the time to review Karensa. I'm afraid the nature of a barn conversion and restrictions on it when building, resulted in a certain size of window being fitted. The downstairs bedroom isn't big enough to have a wardrobe in but with the others upstairs it usually gives adequate storage. Thanks for the feedback on the toilet cistern I've made the onsite manager aware. We will be looking at sofa replacements in the winter months. We look forward to welcoming you back again one day. Kind Regards Country View Cottages

Silent place, nice location, good situation

We stayed at the Karensa Cottage with a family of 5 persons. The cottage offers lots of space and a nice place to be outside for eating. The pool (fresh water) and the Jacuzzi was the favourite place of our children. Although there are several houses sharing a common courtyard it was silent and intimate. We felt very comfortable being in this place. Issues to improve in the installation: - The barn and rubbish bins in the parking space give a very bad reception and the bin very always full - The kitchen equipment is scarce for up to 6 people and used up (pan, no soup plates). - The games in the common game room imperfect or broken (even a risk for playing children), although some of them are not free of charge - Internet / Wi-Fi is available but speed is annoying up to unacceptable - Toilet flush sometimes not working or not stopping pouring water - Wardrobe missing in one sleeping room. Although the Cottage is situated in a nice countryside, lots of interesting places are not far away. As well shopping facilities and places to eat and drink are on short driving distance. Karensa Cottage is recommendable even more if the game room were in better conditions, the barn covered with a simple door and the kitchen equipped a good piece better.

From the Owner:
Thank you for taking the time to review Karensa. We have a waste management company who do weekly collections for recycling and rubbish. Obviously in the summer months there can be a lot of waste. I'm sorry you felt the kitchen equipment was inadequate we follow guidelines from a large cottage company on what should go in the cottage. I will make a not to add some soup bowls. This is the first I've heard about breakages in the games room. I have told the onsite manager to take a look. I'm afraid the internet speed is nothing we can do anything about at the moment. We are waiting for Superfast broadband to be rolled out across Cornwall and in that area. We only advise Wifi for checking emails etc not for streaming or gaming. There is a wardrobe missing as there is no room for it. People usually find enough storage with the others available. I will make a note to look at possibly adding a rail. I've told the onsite manager about the toilet cistern. We look forward to welcoming you back again one day. Kind Regards Country view Cottages

karensa cottage

A wonderful cottage providing all home comforts and sufficient space for 4 adults and two children. The facilities including pool, spa and play area was ideal for the children. We also benefitted from the courtyard that gave our children a chance to play and make friends with the neighboring children. The grounds are especially attractive and well maintained. Darren was also very prompt and helpful when we called upon him for assistance. We had a lovely time exploring Falmouth and the Lizard. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property.
