Hidden away up a bridlepath with tremendous, far-reaching views towards both the North and South Cornish coastlines, Kitts Cottage affords complete privacy yet is only a mile from the village of Carharrack (shop and PO). The cottage is also conveniently placed for visiting the many attractions of this part of Cornwall - the superb sandy/surfing beaches at Porthtowan and Portreath on the north coast, the cliff walks of the Lizard peninsula, the creeks of the Fal Estuary and the Helford River with their sub-tropical gardens (Trebah, Trelissick and The Lost Gardens of Heligan), shopping in the cathedral city of Truro (6 miles) - and of course famous St Ives with its laid-back artist community.

Originally a tinner's simple dwelling, Kitts Cottage has been sympathetically modernised to provide a comfortable and attractive place to relax and enjoy the peace and privacy it affords.


Small entrance lobby. Sitting/dining room with woodburning stove in a granite fireplace. Low doorway to light, modern fitted kitchen. Shower room/wc. Steep open tread stairs lead from sitting room into a very large double bedroom with double height boarded ceiling and exposed stonework at either end; long views on either side.

Beautiful and peaceful

Just returned from a week at this lovely cottage with our small dog. Beautiful peaceful location with breathtaking views. With its location it is simple to visit most of this area of Cornwall on both sides of the coast. Met lots of friendly locals and found nearly everywhere very welcoming. Great local walks and great to explore hidden trails and paths. Only downside for me was the bridle path leading up to the cottage which is in a poor state and can only be passed at a snail's pace. The other downside for me was that due to visiting at half term most places we went were impossible to get to or stay at. Not anyone's fault except our own for picking this week and I would love to visit again at a different time of year.

Amazing half term /mini honeymoon getaway

Thank you Hayley and mark for the great coms before we arrived. The cottage was lovely and exactly what we hoped for ... enjoying evening in front of the lovely log fire ! Our daughter loved every minute of exploring the garden along with Benson the dog ! Thank you Hayley and Mark for the fresh flowers and cream tea on our arrival! Great place to stay and would definitely book again.

Wish we lived here

So lucky to find this place with availability in August. My husband and I with our two terriers came to stay hoping for a relaxing getaway from our busy customer facing jobs. Kitts more than met our needs. From the moment we arrived, up the rocky narrow track, we felt at home. Mark and Hayley gave excellent directions and assured us they were on hand if we needed anything. We were a little late arriving and happy to let ourselves in. Everything was perfect! The cottage is beautiful, cosy and comfortable with all mod cons, without being pretentious or 'boutique' There were vases of beautiful fresh garden flowers in the living room and bedroom and a cream tea left out in the kitchen. We had some damp weather so lit the log burner a couple of nights. It was a lovely touch that logs, kindling and firelighters were left for us to use. We topped up at Carharrack Animal Feeds a couple of miles away who were very helpful and friendly too. Me and the dogs absolutely loved the garden - lots of springy grass surrounded by stone hedges smothered in foxgloves, ferns and crocosmia. We sat out on the lawn a couple of evenings and watched the rabbits emerge and bats flit overhead. The stars were stunning! The kitchen was light and spacious and was easy to cook in. The bed was super comfy with a glorious view out the window. The bathroom was lovely and light with a good shower. There was a great walk from the cottage up the track to Carn Marth amphitheater which was magical to visit in the mist. Nearby we drove to Mylor and St Anthony, both of which were great for the doggies. We ate out at the Fox & Hounds in Comford, The Coppice in Lanner and the Star Inn in St Day, all were dog friendly and great meals out. We all felt very much at home at Kitts and it was a great wrench to leave. It was such a calming and rejuvenating time that I promptly informed my husband that he would be taking me here again next year for my birthday!

A beautiful, peaceful spot. Perfect for a rest and recharge with our two dogs. Took advantage of the paths and bridleways nearby as well as visiting Trebah Gardens and the Roseland Peninsula. The cottage is perfect in all weathers and very cosy in the evenings. We very much appreciated the cream tea on arrival and fresh flowers were a lovely touch. The garden is just lovely, particularly for our two naughty terriers who spent ages chasing balls and each other round & round! I love the blaze of orange crocosmia up the centre and the daisies along the wall.

A lovely, magical place to come home to after negotiating holiday season traffic and people during the day - we can't wait to return again.

We loved the cottage as soon as we got here. It was even better than we were expecting; it had stunning views and was very cosy. It was very peaceful, perfect for us all to rest and have fun; it was an ideal location to explore Cornwall. Our seven year old son said he would love to live in a place like this and that alone was worth the trip. He also made the most of the lovely garden, as did our Cocker Spaniel Olly, and we could relax while we watched them. We will miss the evening walks up the hill to the quarry - such a beautiful place to go and watch the sun set. Thanks to Marc and Hayley for making this an unforgetttable holiday, from the welcoming flowers & scones with cream and jam, to making sure we had everything we needed to settle into the cottage. Would love to come back again.

Kitts Cottage warm cosy and perfect!

We had the most amazing stay at Kitts Cottage. We stayed a week for New Years and arrived in the dark, after a long 7 hour journey! Mark and Hayley's directions were spot on! Although there is a long uphill road and a bridle path to be driven up towards the cottage, we managed just fine. We woke up the next day from our cosy bed and saw the most amazing sunrise and landscape across Cornwall! Kitts cottage is just beautiful and cosy. Sitting high on the hill surrounded by fields. The lounge has a big fireplace where we sat most evenings after our walks with the dog, eating drinking and playing games. The kitchen is surprisingly large, brand new and had all mod cons. The local pub was just a 5 minute drive away and we also went into St Ives a few times, which is only 15 mins away.

We had such a lovely time here, despite the rain and will definitely love to visit Kitts Cottage again one summer! Many thanks Mark and Hayley for the clean, spotless, homely welcome! The mince pies and wine were a big hit! Julie and family.

What a cosy place!

This cottage is a little gem! Hayley gave us such a warm welcome that we felt at home from the first minute. With the Cornish drizzle outside, we appreciated the warm fire and the cosy place even more. Thank you Hayley, for your enthusiasm.

Just what we needed after a busy summer season at home - peaceful and relaxed. Great walks directly from the cottage - great for us and the dogs. Perfect location for both coasts. Best week of weather!

Mr and Mrs Ansty, September 2015

A lovely place to stay with wonderful views. Cosy and warm during the breezy nights. Sad to go. Thank you for lending us your little slice of tranquility.

The Osborne family, July 2015

We all loved Kitts Cottage and our dogs loved the garden just as much as us. We have had a lovely holiday - visiting all the lovely beaches and all the town centres - then coming back to Kitts Cottage to relax - Just heaven.Thank you

Mr Bolt, August 2014

We've thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kitts Cottage. Perfect location with the most amazing views. The Garden is absolutely lovely - the dog has had a great time with all the space to chase a ball! A break we will remember. Thank you

Mr J Villadelprat, Barcelona. August 2014

The moment we got here, we didn't want to leave! Kitts Cottage is so peaceful and quiet! It's a great location as it is central to anywhere you may want to go. It is great for long walks and cosy nights in! Never have we slept as well as we have done in Kitts Cottage. We are already planning your next trip! Thank you for a great holiday.

Mr and Mrs Lynch, July 2014

Gorgeous, idyllic cottage. Perfectly placed for fantastic walking.

Mr & Mrs Oldridge, September 2013

Kitt’s is a lovely (perfect) get-away-from-it-all cottage. Great atmosphere and very cosy in the evenings with the fire going.

Mr & Mrs Phillips, September 2013

Wonderful cottage in very peaceful location. We loved the walks in the local area and the stunning views.

Mr & Mrs Moseley, July 2013

We arrived in the dark- excited to see Kitts Cottage in all her glory on the hill. Woke up to an amazing, beautiful cottage with lovely views across the hills. Great walks - excellent for the dog. Although the weather was wet and cold we all enjoyed sitting around the fire, playing games, watching TV, eating and drinking. Bed very comfy, house warm and kitchen modern, clean and big! We would love to come back again and see Kitts Cottage in the summer. Great job Mark and Hayley on cleanliness and homeliness. Very cosy!
