Lovely cottage in a secluded location, perfect for escaping the crowds in these COVID times. Well equipped and very clean with areas to store walking gear etc after exploring the coastal paths. Short walk into the village up the lane or down to Polurrian Cove to watch the sunsets. Two pubs in the village and an excellent fish and chip shop by far the best we've had in a long time. Many local walks and attractions to explore in an excellent location on the Lizard peninsula. We have visited several times and will continue to do so as it is the perfect base for our trip to Cornwall.

Thank you! It is so good to have confirmation that our guest friends have enjoyed their time in the Cottage and the village. We do try hard to make the Cottage as welcoming as possible and we are so lucky to be situated in such an ideal position. Thank you both for your kind words and for booking to return in 2022-we look forward to seeing you then!

A little hidden gem. Great base for visiting surrounding area. Nice & clean and lots of pots and utensils in the kitchen. Lovely outside seating area, very secluded. South facing. Comfy beds. Great for dogs. Cons: long & very bumpy road to cottage. Bathroom / shower a little dated.

Thank you for coming to stay it was a pleasure to meet you both. We managed to complete quite a lot of upgrading during the lockdown and an update for the bathroom, being an indoor winter job, is next on the list. we hope too that,when our neighbour's building works are completed, the lane will be put back to normal. Thank you again for your visit and taking the time to review us!

Lovely week staying here. Location is close to the amenities in the village and to walk to Polurrian Cove. Very peaceful and off the main roads. Cottage had everything we needed and was a good base. We did a lot of walking in both directions along the coast path. We will definitely stay again when we return to Mullion. It is well placed to explore the Lizard peninsula.

Super cottage situated along a narrow rutted lane with a footpath down to Pulurrian Cove just outside the garden. Turning spots are limited so follow the instructions you will be given to avoid going too far along the lane. (4G signal is limited as you approach the cottage so open the email before you get there or better still save the instructions, we hadn’t, then couldn’t open them and did go too far) Two spacious bedrooms, very spacious kitchen lounge area complete with efficient wood burner and shower/bathroom. There is a conservatory with drying rack, plenty of room for outdoor kit) A great place to cosy up and relax. Chris is a wonderful host and milk & mince pies on arrivals were very welcome. Once settled in, the coastal path is wonderful. It’s an easy walk along the cliff top from the cove along to Mullion Harbour and the chocolate factory provides a great stop on the walk back. Heading north, Poldhu cove is a short walk. Continue on and Church Cove awaits then Jangyre ryn and the Gunwalloe Fishing Cove and the excellent Hazelphron Pub. We enjoyed a super Sunday lunch, the seafood Chowder is magnificent. Then walk back or get a taxi. Further along the Lizard Kynance Cove is well worth a visit as is Lizard point. Whilst there C & E Retallack Butchers offers wonderful meat and most cooking provisions you will need too. Support local businesses, there are Coop’s, Spar, Sainsbury and Tesco supermarkets all within a short drive. Finally, contact Chris direct and book rather than online via the website.

Thank You! It was lovely to have you to stay. We try our best to make the Cottage comfortable, welcoming and well equipped-so it is a great pleasure for us to know that it is appreciated. We meet a lot of nice people (and lovely dogs) through the holiday let and you will be most welcome to come again-We hope you will! Happy New Year!

Cwary Vean Cottage is a nice little cottage with everything you need. The location is perfect to go for a walk to the closeby beach and with beautiful views along the cliffs to the next cove (Mullion Cove or Poldhu Cove) or to charming Mullion. We also used it as a starting point to explore half of Cornwall from here, which is no problem with a car. Having our host Chris and his friendly dog Tilly next door also made us feel safe and comfortable at all times. We had a great time here!

Thank you for coming to stay at Cwary Vean, and thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. It was a pleasure to have you to stay and to see you both enjoying your visit. We try hard to make the Cottage as welcoming and comfortable as possible for our guests and love to know our visitors have had a good time here. I know you felt there was still a lot of interesting places to go and sights left to see - so I do hope you will return for another visit-you will be most welcome if you do!

What a great and lucky find! I have already stayed here two years running and would have stayed again this year if circumstances had allowed - however I am booked in for 2019! This is the perfect dog friendly cottage from which to explore Cornwall and the property itself is only a few minutes walk through sheep free fields to a perfect sandy cove - idyllic for early morning dogwalks or days on the beach in clement weather. There is plenty of parking and the cottage is spacious and very well equipped with a really useful entrance area for boots, dog towels, coats etc. It is centrally heated, so always warm, but there is also a large woodburning stove for cosy nights in - or days if you are a winter visitor like me! The beds are extremely comfortable and there is plenty of storage space in the bright rooms. Unusually for a cottage, the kitchen and living area is surprisingly spacious which is a bonus as the cottage sleeps four, so no falling over each other - or any pets! The walks either way along the headland to neighbouring coves are perfect, with stunning views and the village is within very easy reach for local shopping or visits to the pubs. Mullion itself is as quaint as only Cornish villages can be, but get in the car and you are within reach of wondrous places all over the Cornish peninsula with something to suit all ages and tastes, from Lands End and the Eden Project to Tintagel - and back via the Minack Open Air Theatre and a plethora of standing stones and burial chambers! Chris, the owner and his dog Tilly are exceptionally friendly, welcoming and helpful, without being in the slightest intrusive. He lives on site with his wife in the property next door and is a mine of local information should it be required. I would add that as a single woman I would feel very safe should I be staying there alone with this immediate access to the owners. I would also say book early - many people, like myself, are returning visitors which actually says it all!

Thank you Steph-we love seeing you every year and missed you this time. Your week has your name on it whenever you decide to sample more of the Celtic scenery. Since your last visit we have had a new floor laid throughout the Cottage (very durable and dog friendly so no worries there). I shall look forward to your verdict next visit. I think you will approve.....we are very pleased with it!

A really lovely cottage a few minutes walk from Polurrian cove. The cove is close enough for the family to pull on the wetsuits and enjoy the surf to start the day. The cottage is very comfortable and ideally located to visit attractions around southern Cornwall. It is well equipped, spacious and very cosy if you are visiting in colder months. The owner is friendly, welcoming and will do everything to make sure you have a comfortable stay. We have enjoyed our stay there so much we have visited twice already and we will keep on returning. The family all look forward to our holiday in this cottage including our dog.

Thank you! You know it is always a pleasure to have you all to stay. Knowing that you have all enjoyed yourselves is the icing on the cake! I think we are very lucky at Cwary Vean, not just to be in a lovely quiet location between the village and the beach-but also with so many varied and interesting places easily accessible from here, that there is no chance of doing everything in one week! We are lucky too that the Cornish people are so friendly and welcoming-I tend to take this for granted, until our visitors remind me. Thank you for your review-we look forward to your next visit.

Beautiful location at the top of Polurrian Cove. The lovely beach is just a short walk down the footpath through the field. A wonderful place especially for the dogs. A 10 minute walk down the hill to Mullion village with its shops, pubs and restaurants. The cottage itself is very warm and comfortable and the owner, Chris is extremely friendly and helpful.

About the neighbourhood
Cwary Vean is a great centre to explore the peninsular-equally it is close to the beach and 'from the garden gate' walks inland or on the coastal path. Some guests do not use their car from arrival to departure-others are out seeing something new and different every day. There are numerous sandy beaches, gardens, castles, manorial homes and other tourist attractions. My favourites are St Michael's Mount and The Minack open air cliffside theatre. You can buy fish straight from the boat in Newlyn and Cornish pasties in the Village- hot and ready to eat. If I tell you too much there will be no adventures of discovery and surprise delights left ........ so that's it , the rest is yours to search and discover.
Getting around
Buses run from the end of the lane (.3 of a mile from the Cottage) to Helston and Lizard. Some guests bring cycles and modern multi shift gears make the hills more manageable than they were on my old 3 speed bike! You can even rent a ride from the local riding stables (Newton Equestrian). Walking is Good too!.
