    The cottage is lovely, and I cant fault the cottage. It has the added bonus of a hot tub. The only thing is you have to drive to places there isn't anything in walking distance, like shops, cafe,pubs, the nearest beach is a 20 minute drive away.

    We were slightly apprehensive about staying here with our 2 and 4 yr old daughters as it seemed mainly geared up for adults. However, when we got there it quickly became clear it wasn't going to be a concern. The house was well equipped for children and they had a great holiday. The owners live next to the cottage but they did not bother us at all. They are very friendly and welcoming. The addition of wine, eggs and fresh flowers waiting for us was a bonus! The house was immaculate and we found the location perfect for exploring. Helston is just a short drive away with everything you'll need. It rained every day we were there but we managed to explore 4 different beaches, lands end, st michaels mount food festival in St Ives and more. The maritime museum in Falmouth was fantastic for the very wet days. Our tickets allowed entry for a whole year so we popped in a couple of times. I have fallen in love with Cornwall so we will be back. Thank you Paul and Clare for a great stay!

    We visited Skiber An Gwenely cottage in April and it was absolutely fantastic! The place was very clean and very welcoming. We immediately felt at home as soon as we entered the cottage. There was a lovely bottle of wine and fresh eggs, (which was unexpected) when we arrived. The sauna and hot tub were perfect! The garden was was lovely even though we did not end up using it. There was an abundance of games to play which was fantastic as we had our sveven year old with us. Even though the owners lived on the premises, it was like they weren't there. We felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. There are lots of places within the vicinity to go and explore. We would definitely stay there again!

    We had a fantastic week staying in this cottage. It was very well equipt and in a great location for exploring Cornwall and we walked alot of the coastal paths and really recommend the slice of Cornwall cafe just down the road. We will be back to stay again

    pleasent stay, nice cottage and nice people that live there. Lovely hot tub. Me and my girlfriend loved the area and visited a few sights when we were there. No real bad points would love to go back one day with a more reliable car.

    We are home and we feel sick. Would love to be back in the sauna or jacuzzi now :( Cottage is great value for money because of the wet-room and we shall be booking again for next year. We have in the past shied away from booking properties that are close to the owners as we fear they could be intrusive. This certainly was not the case, never saw another person, had no idea if they were there or not! Wonderful. On arrival the cottage was warm, there was a bottle of wine waiting on the table, eggs, coffee, milk, tea, sugar and biscuits in the kitchen, a really lovely touch as we normally get sod all. Skiber is well decorated and maintained, very clean (take our hats off to the cleaner) and always feels warm and welcoming. The bed was really comfy and for us this is rare as one of us usually has disturbed sleep if the mattress is too hard or soft. This is a Goldilocks bed. Absolutely loved the place to bits. Thank you to Paul for allowing all of us strangers in to his property and more so his sauna and jacuzzi because if they were mine they'd be mine, all mine!
