The house itself isn't perfect but if the 7 acres of land caught your attention then GO FOR IT. You could not want for a better base to explore West Cornwall & although Penzance itself is a bit grotty it does have good shops & facilities. Almost everywhere else is gobsmackingly beautiful & it's all within 1/2hr drive. We had an adventure packed week of flying visits along the coastline with a few inland trips to explore prehistoric monuments and ruined tin mines. The highlight of our week had to be the 7 acres, our dog is still sulking that she cannot run around & roll in the grass off the lead and the grandaughter is really missing the horses. We found the secret cave ! To cap it all off we had a visit from 4x deer at dawn on Thursday.
Stayed here 5th-12th March, very easy to find well signposted, first impressions this is a homely place and ourselves and the dogs loved it. Basically we only used one of the double rooms but there is ample space for four more people. Beds were comfy, central heating worked a treat, showers were spot on. Its a central location and we travelled around 450 miles in the week we were there. Had to play around with the wifi password its wrong in the plastic folder but correct in visitors book? If I can I will be back again. Loved it! Didn't see any deer but that's probably our fault!
We stayed here from 16th-23rd April. The cottage is absolutely beautiful, set in a peaceful, tranquil location. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. The tv and wifi reception were a bit hit & miss but it never caused us a problem! The location is brilliant to access Lands End/St Ives/Penzance/Hayle, nowhere is too far away! We enjoyed the beaches at Sennan Cove & Hayle (great for dogs before 1st May). The fields which surround the cottage are fantastic for the dogs & watching any wildlife. We'll definitely be going back...the best cottage we've ever stayed in!
A charming detached cottage in a fantastic area for exploring the local areas. I do believe the grounds could be maintained better, as the "7 acres" of fields, are actually left with grass reaching your thighs! No good for hayfever sufferers. Also there are outbuildings at the back with disused items such as a car, greenhouse and various furniture which I believe could lead to a safety issue and slightly detracts the beauty of the cottage. The tiles in upstairs bathroom are loose, and there is a wall in a bedroom where the plaster has blown. I would of thought these items would of been addressed at the start of the season, but never mind. All this aside we would return as the cottage itself is delightful. The posy of flowers and chocolate cookies on arrival, was a lovely touch and we hope to return one day. Our boys 5 & 7 didn't want to leave!!! Thank you for a lovely stay x
After a busy year we were looking forward to a relaxing Christmas break, visiting old childhood haunt's and coastal walks. Avallon certainly ticked all our boxes and our dog certainly enjoyed playing in the grounds. The decorated real Christmas tree, flowers and luxury biscuits were a lovely touch. Avallon felt like a real home from home rather than a holiday let. Cornwall is so dog friendly, we will certainly be revisiting.
