This is a must book holiday! ! So comfortable and relaxing. The owners are really lovely, we arrived late due to bad weather and they came to say hello and hoped we were ok. That was all we saw of them, friendly and not intrusive at all. The location is amazing, so close to beautiful beaches and stunning walks. Perfect for exploring or staying put! The cottage is beautiful!!! So welcoming and comfortable. A very well equipped kitchen too! The tub it a great bonus, after walking all day! Also just for relaxing in. We enjoyed it that much in a week in cold, wet February that we would like to visit in the summer. It would be even more stunning!

Great cottage, our second time at Five Elements and a good time was had by all including the dog ! We would highly recommend the experience and no doubt will visit again. The owners have done a great job with making it homely, comfortable and relaxing. Lots of walks on the beach and along the cliff paths and beautiful scenery all around any time of the year.

The cottage is great although we had virtually non-stop sunshine so we are maybe a little biased! Every meal there was taken outside and we found everything we needed at the cottage. We particularly wanted to be close to,St Agnes so it’s situation was great. It was very peaceful and quiet. We would definitely recommend it but you need to be reasonably able bodied as there are many steps down and up from the property. Great holiday, fabulous beaches, good food, would happily return.

This cottage is located in a rural spot near to a farmhouse and a studio that are also rental holiday lets. You can hear noise from these so do not expect complete isolation. There are privacy fence panels between each property but you do share a large parking area. The cottage has two assigned spaces. You approach the cottage via an unpaved road and it is rather a bumpy ride so be warned and it's maybe not suitable for a low riding car. The cottage is then down numerous steps from the parking area.. Once inside you are in an tastefully decorated old style cottage with beamed ceilings and a quirky layout. There are numerous levels so steps everywhere. There is a rather dark bedroom downstairs which had a dehumidifier going in it which we had to empty daily while we were there. There are three upstairs bedrooms and a bathroom on each level. The kitchen is well equipped and suitable for all types of cooking and there is fully equipped gas BBQ outside the kitchen patio doors. Upstairs the height of the door frames are very low and one has to be very careful negotiating the steps to each bedroom. The main staircase is narrow and steep with a rail on one side. These low doors and steps detracted from our holiday as we bumped our heads many times and missed steps till we got used to the layout. We are not tall people but anyone over six feet will struggle here and toddlers will need to be supervised at all times as the floors are tiled or wooden downstairs. . The hot tub is large and heated on arrival and a welcome addition . The owners offer on site yoga and treatments and the yoga class we attended was excellent. Overall we found the cottage comfortable but because of the layout would not be inclined to rent it again.

Five elements cottage was a nice quiet place to stay in Cornwall.. The Farmhouse and Studio are also holiday lets so some noise was expected but this is a rural part of the county so most times all you hear is birdsong and a local cock crowing. The road to the cottage is unpaved and very rough and bumpy so we were glad of our four wheel drive. The Cottage is at the side of steep hill so it can get windy at the cottage even if its warm at sea level. We did an onsite Yoga class with the owner which was excellent. We used the hot tub a few times which was a lovely added feature to the cottage. The cottage was clean and tidy when we arrived. We cooked all our meals in the well equipped kitchen and there are two sets of tongs in the drawer now in response to customer feedback. We did not use the BBQ but it comes with a full set of BBQ tools. The freezer and washing machine are in the utility room and all we longed for was a tumble dryer as the weather was not great for drying our cycling kit outside . But there is an rack to hang clothes on that can be put up indoors and outdoors. Our main issue with this cottage was the interior design which we would have liked to have known about in the marketing brief from Sykes purely for health and safety reasons. The doors frames upstairs are very very low and there are some steep steps up to the two double bedrooms and one step down to the bathroom and single bedroom off the upstairs landing. We kept banging our heads or missing a step. We are not tall but anyone over six feet will struggle at this cottage. Likewise toddlers would find the steep staircase and steps from the lounge to the dining room and then again from there to the kitchen difficult to navigate. For this reason we would not rent this cottage again.

It would have been nice if the owners had come and introduced themselves.. Its the first cottage that ive stayed in and never met the people who own it. We only had one issue the front door wouldnt unlock from the inside so my daughter had to go out the kitchen patio door to climb over a small wall to unlock it. It would have been hard work for an older couple. Again if we had seen the owners we could have told them. All in all we had a lovely stay at Five Elements Cottage.

5 elements cottage if a beautiful house in a very peaceful setting.. We had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Our dog was very well catered for with a safe enclosed garden and and a handy field for those early and late short walks. The hot tub and a super addition, one we didn’t think we needed but turned out we did taking a dip most days helped us unwind. Great pubs and restaurants not too far away plus a superb take away pizza in St Agnes. Thank you Sykes for offering this gem!

We loved the cottage, clean, comfortable and a real home from home, the hot tub was a bonus and our two dogs loved the beach at Perranporth .. ..

A lovely cottage in a good location to explore the 'southern' end of Cornwall.. The abailty to book on-site therapies was wonderful and a great way to start and end the holiday.

Five Elements cottage was amazing! The location was perfect, just a short drive to most of the well known places in Cornwall. We couldn't of asked for anything better!

We stayed here with our 3 daughters and it really could not of been better . Cottage was immaculate throughout. Nice crisp linen and towels provided to make it feel that extra bit special. The owners were welcoming yet gave us privacy but were on hand if needed. It really felt like our own home. We also took our dog for his first holiday and he loved it too. The hot tub kept everyone entertained even on the couple of gloomy days we had weather wise. Could not fault this property . Hoping to go back next year.

What an amazing cottage, it was equipped with everything we needed and made our first holiday to Cornwall very memorable. The hot tub was a brilliant addition. The area around the cottage was very quiet and peaceful. Overall we had fantastic holiday.

Wow, What an amazing cottage. Based in a very quiet location down a country lane. To explore the many different areas of Cornwall we travelled in the car and found parking easily and at reasonable rates. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you will need to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing.
