A Well Hidden but Perfectly Located Getaway

A perfect getaway well located to access all the best parts of southern Cornwall. Thanks to Lucy and Adrian for providing such a beautiful cottage in such a peaceful setting and furnished to a high standard with everything you need for a self catering break. Great place to start or finish a walk, nestling in a sheltered part of the Hayle Valley while still being within 15mins of Penzance.

Wonderful location, plus peace and quiet. Cottage has everything and very tastefully decorated, we felt very at home. The garden was perfect and secure for our golden retriever to relax before and after long walks. Adrian and Lucy are friendly and informative hosts. We would highly recommend without hesitation.

Corn Loft stay September 2023

A wonderfully quiet spot for a week away, home from home with great hosts Lucy and Adrian. Perfectly located for all that Cornwall has to offer by way of tourist attractions. Recommendations for local places to eat were perfect. Highly recommended. Thank you!

Perfect holiday hideaway

We have just arrived home from a week at River Cottage (July 2023) and we miss it already! This was our second visit and this year was just as good as last year. A truly idyllic cottage in stunning grounds, tranquil enough to feel like you’re a million miles from the hustle and bustle of real life, yet only a short drive to St Ives, Marazion, Penzance and lots of beautiful beaches. The cottage was spotlessly clean, has everything you could wish for on your holiday and has a luxurious feel, with nice touches such as fluffy towels,  high end toiletries and a welcome hamper of treats.  We highly recommend River Cottage and will be back!

Fabulous relaxing stay at Corn Loft

We travelled down to Cornwall and arrived at Corn Loft feeling very weary.

Adrian and Lucy met us on arrival. They gave us a very warm welcome.  Lucy showed us around Corn Loft, it was beautiful and I wouldn’t hesitate to return. 

Lucy had supplied a Cream tea and bottle of Fizz which was most welcome and enjoyable after travelling all day.

Big comfy sofa. Lovely roll top bath and a comfy bed, what more could you ask for? The cottage was immaculate too. 

We didn’t use the Bar-b-q or the fire pit but a great addition 👍 

We were blessed with good weather and had a walk by the river to the village pub 😊.

We used the park and ride at St Erth Station to go to St Ives, that saved so musc hassle. 

Thank you Lucy and Adrian. We had a very peaceful week in beautiful surroundings.

Perfectly idyllic!!

We have just returned from the most amazing stay at Corn Loft. The cottage is stylish, well equipped, extremely comfortable and, without doubt, the loveliest cottage we’ve ever stayed in. Adrian and Lucy are lovely – personable and  very friendly and helpful. They have created a little paradise with beautiful gardens and direct access to gorgeous riverside walks. We had the most relaxing and chilled holiday and can’t wait to return.

Return Visit

Back for a second stay at River Cottage.  The perfect place for a get away.  Adrian and Lucy welcome you and there is a goodie pack awaiting of Prosecco, scones, jam, clotted cream and milk! The cottage is clean, has everything you need and it just ‘hugs’ you as soon as you walk in. Cannot wait to return to our little hideaway for a third time.

Amazed! A hidden gem.. River Cottage 16th-19th December.

Lucy and Adrian go above and beyond to give you the best stay. From great communication before arrival to greeting you at the most immaculate Cottage we have ever stayed at. Everything you need they have catered for. River Cottage is like something from a movie, so peaceful, a perfect stay for couples in a beautiful location with plenty to do around. The log burner, bedroom bath, and river just outside leading a short walk to the local pub was perfect for these colder months. We can’t wait to go back!

Fabulous Stay!

What a wonderful 3 days we have just had in River Cottage!  This beautiful cottage, with it’s very well appointed, rustic charm, exceeds all expectations and had everything we needed for a very comfortable and relaxed stay.  Our dog even had her own doggie welcome pack!  Carbis Mill holds an idilic position, tucked away down a driveway next to the river and even has its own leat running right through the middle of the garden, you feel like you are a million miles from anywhere, so its a perfect escape and antidote to normal busy life but you are still close enough to walk to St Erth along the river or pop in the car to local beaches and sites.  Adrian and Lucy are perfect hosts!  Their attention to all the little details that make a difference to your stay are very evident but they are very relaxed and always happy to share all their local knowledge of the area to enhance your stay in any way that they can.  We also loved the private little garden space at the back of the cottage that is fully fenced, it was a great comfort to know we could let the dog out knowing she couldn’t wander off exploring!  We had one day that was a little overcast and damp so after breakfast in Marazion overlooking St Michaels Mount and a long beach walk we were really happy to relax in the cosy cottage with the woodburner and a film.  So River Cottage is perfect for getting out and about from and for just getting cosy and relaxed in too, we can’t recommend it more highly and will definitely be going back soon! Thanks Adrian and Lucy!  With our very best wishes, Nick, Ness and Smartie! 🐾. 22-24th April 2022

Five star stay!!

The Cornish sunshine was missing, well it was the end of January, but we had a wonderful stay in Corn Loft. Our hosts left a very welcome cream tea and they also recommended a few local hostelries (Porthminster Kitchen was excellent). Carbis Mill is set in a tranquil oasis, hearing the river run by is quite a treat.The property itself is beautifully furnished and spotless. We couldn’t recommend a stay at Corn Loft enough, five star all round!
