We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Mackerel Skies in July. This holiday home was truly unique and proved to be our little oasis near the sea. We love to cook and were wowed by the beautiful, extremely well-appointed kitchen. The master bedroom is sun-drenched and perfect with its white walls and gorgeous soaking tub.


We loved that there were so many seating areas, both inside and out. We sat in the cozy sitting room with its comfy leather sofas at night, but  loved the light the sun room got during the day. There is also a great covered patio right off the sun room which is great for breakfast or afternoon tea. The garden has a beautiful deck with barbecue and outdoor dining table along with the hot tub! Because of all of these thoughtful touches, we found ourselves wanting to just hang out at the house, enjoying the hot tub, reading our books and sipping cold Cornish beers. We love that the owners have taken care of every little detail - fun, thoughtful modern furnishings that blend with the traditional cottage seamlessly. 



We could not get enough of Cornwall itself, with its beautiful beaches, friendly people and romantic rural landscapes. Mackerel Skies offers plenty of privacy and blends the serenity of a beautiful garden with fun, seaside touches. While we don´t have children, we found that Mackerel Skies would be a great place for families. The owners could not have been lovelier and greeted us welcoming smiles and lots of great recommendations for things to see and do. We left Mackerel Skies not only feeling rested and relaxed, but already planning our next trip back! We’re a young couple from New York City and we have rented a number of self-catering properties over the years. Mackerel Skies exceeded our high expectations and lands firmly at the top of our all-time favourites list!

We could not recommend Mackerel Skies more highly.
