set in a beautiful area of the countryside right next to Hayle Village the beautiful little bungalow cottage was the perfect break for my husband and I (plus our dog) we had the most wonderful time on our first visit to Cornwall.

This is a lovely cottage with everything you need and all on one floor so great for those with mobility issues with stairs. Its situated on a working farm so its away from the bustle of the crowds and there is plently of parking. Being just down the road, its close to shops and resturants and a short drive to the beaches. This is the first time I hRead moreave visited this cottage but have stayed in all the others on this farm and it certainly will not be the last. Hide

This is a lovely cottage that is very comfortable. It's well equipped and very clean. The setting is on a working farm but is very peaceful. It's in a great location within easy access to with side of the cornish coast. You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

A gem of a cottage! Well equipped and really comfortable accommodation. The location for exploring west Cornwall was brilliant. We stayed with our dog and the enclosed garden albeit with a low stone wall, was great for her. We had a relaxing stay and would love to go back!

The cottage is beautiful & very clean, the other cottages also look lovely & a nice little complex off from the farm but for us we were disappointed that there were no safe walks to take our dog without going in the car, there is a farm track but no safe walks the track leads onto a minor road then a busy A road into Hayle, not ideal but this is ouRead morer fault for not researching the area better, wanted to walk to places safely which we couldn't do plus the weather was a mixed bag which didn't help.

Wonderful holiday cottage. A perfect base for walking on the South West Coastal Path from St Agnes Head to Cape Cornwall and The Lizard. I'll be back!

Had a wonderful time at Carnsew Cottage yet again. It is comfy, extremely well equipped, peaceful and it comes with its own private garden with outdoor seating area perfect for summer evenings. Fantastic location on Trenhayle Farm but close enough to enjoy all the amenities Hayle and St Ives have to offer with Train station a few minutes away also.Read more Would highly recommend. Hide
