New Year stay 2019
This is a compact, but cosy and beautifully furnished and decorated little cottage.
The fresh cut flowers were a really nice touch, and Amanda and Ian were really nice hosts.
Week in Gunwalloe
The Old Ration Shop is an attractive, stylish place to stay in Cornwall. Amanda and Ian are ideal hosts, very helpful and available, but unobtrusive.
Small but perfect and cosy for 2.
Easy to book and owner responded promptly.
Beautiful little place, good location for sightseeing, local pub food tasty albeit slightly odd food combinations. Property warm & cosy when heating came on. Most enjoyable stay. Lovely scones with jam & clotted cream on arrival, nice touch.
Very comfortable clean, modern and friendly
Smaller than expected from photos.. but we grew to love it , Owners so helpful after our puncture!
Short walk up road from car parking.
Would return again....and again..
Excellent property, just what we needed for our visit to Cornwall
Generally good. We were able to explore most of South Cornwall but had to make sure we were well stocked at the property as no local amenities. There may be a drainage problem as well as there was sometimes a smell in the courtyard which may need to be checked. There is no washing machine either which may be listed though we did not need one. The property itself is well equiped though. It was probably two small for us with no real privacy and quite noisy but we adapted.
Thank you for your review. I’m sorry about drainage smell. We’ve recently had a new drainage system installed and it is in the process of being commissioned. I hope it didn’t ruin your stay. I would question your comment about privacy and noise. It is made very clear from our webpage that we live next door. There is a new high stone wall and garden at the front of the cottage which completely separates the two and a private garden at the rear which is overlooked by a shed (not in use) and a bathroom window on the first floor. We (3 of us mostly out during the day) are not a noisy family and the lane which goes down to the beach at Church and Dollar Coves does get quite busy but usually only during the holidays. It’s very quiet at night. We don’t have a Shop, again this is made clear on our description, but we do have a great pub a few minutes walk away and Helston with 2 big supermarkets 10 minutes drive away.
Gunwalloe is a small former fishing village located on the Lizard Peninsular on the coast between Porthleven and Mullion. It's a haven for walkers, surfers, bird watchers and beachcombers. This area has much to offer. Beautiful beaches, picturesque fishing villages and spectacular scenery. Cornwall has many beautiful gardens notably Heligan and The Eden Project, both an hour away. Falmouth is our closest large town (20 minutes) with it's Maritime history and museum. St Ives, home of Tate Modern and numerous galleries and restaurants is 40 minutes away. Our local beach Church Cove has appeared in several TV dramas, the most recent being the BBC's adaptation of the Cornish classic Poldark. The Old Ration Shop is well positioned to explore most of Cornwall.
