PEACEFUL, COSY COTTAGE WITH DELIGHTFUL GARDEN
Eight of us aged from 8 to 80 plus two small dogs spent a happy, sunny week at Thornleigh, A previous reviewer was right - the track is bumpy! Not helped by our foolishly taking the wrong fork just after the entrance (make sure you go LEFT) and ending up creeping along two and a half sides of a triangle. We were soon revived by entering the cottage and finding everything absolutely immaculate, together with a much appreciated Welcome Pack and pink roses on the dining table. Lovely touches.
There was plenty of space for three families' 'stuff', including a large utility entrance porch where beach equipment could be dumped at the end of the day. The sitting-room is more than adequate for everyone, although in fairness we didn't have any wet weather when everyone would have had to sit around indoors. The gazebo in the garden is huge, shady and comfortably furnished with sofas and large table. We ate out there every evening, either barbecues or meals made in the kitchen. The barbecue grill does need charcoal, but it is large and works extremely well. (Also one Chinese takeaway from Helston, pre-ordered and collected in less than half an hour.)
The garden is well stocked with lots of shrubs which provided shade, but could possibly begin to be a little overbearing in greyer weather - please chop back the bottlebrush tree tangling with the washing line!! Our grandsons much enjoyed the paddock at the end of the garden for kicking a football around and generally letting off steam.
Upstairs there are three very reasonable bedrooms, but the fourth double room is quite small - our daughter and husband coped well, but it was hot weather and a bit stuffy. Previous reviewers are right - the beds are really comfy, and the bedlinen and towels are excellent.
We much enjoyed trips out to favourite places: The Minack Theatre, St Michael's Mount, Porthleven, Praa Sands and a day in St Ives using Lelant Saltings Park & Ride Car Park, and going in on the train. What a busy place St Ives is! Godolphin House is an oasis of calm, with an interesting history - a low-key National Trust property which is slowly being renovated, and the walk up to the top of Godolphin Hill was a highlight with views to St Michael's Mount and over to the north coast as well.
Thank you, Jane, for a lovely stay. We were very lucky with the weather, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Gorgeous secluded house
We have just spent a thoroughly enjoyable week at Thornleigh. The garden and gazebo were perfect for long summer evenings and to keep kids busy. The house was lovely, clean and bright and the beds very comfortable.
There is some lovely countryside around the area, as well as a good eating/drinking pub at Breage and a stunning beach and facilities at Praa Sands. Also the location gives good access to lots that south Cornwall has to offer.

alles war wie wir es uns erhoft haben
Quiet and Comfortable
I visited Thornleigh with my daughter and two granddaughters. Spring had been cold and I was anxious about our stay, but we were warm and cosy all week. The house was clean and welcoming. Much better equipped than some properties I have rented in the past. In fact it felt more like borrowing a friends house than a formal rented property! Convenient to beach and lovely walks.
One warning if you have a precious car, the access lane is rough with quite deep potholes, but this might be rectified by the time you get there. Don't let this put you off visiting!
A wonderful well equipped comfortable retreat - detached, secluded garden and field - we loved it.
Payment confusion with Owners Direct system (implies and sates payment in full on credit card but does not clearly state they only take their service charge. Then need to actually pay rental charge to owner direct but fantastic comms with owner - lovely welcome pack, well equipped, stylish and comfortable. Fantastic secluded garden, gazebo and surrounding countryside. Great location for all major sites in Cornwall really. We had a really lovely retreat stay!
We rented this property for a family gathering. It was the perfect location, not too far from shops yet off the beaten track enough that we could just relax and catch up. The garden was beautiful. We spent early mornings on the patio by the lounge and evenings on the decking which was conveniently far enough away from the house that we wouldn't wake the toddler, but near enough that we could hear if he cried. The lounge was large and sunny. The caretaker was so helpful in sorting out baby equipment when we arrived. Would definitely rent this property again.
