This is our second time of using Aspects holidays and we were certainly not disappointed. Maytree cottage was so cosy and comfortable and location was perfect. We had a fantastic time and we were able to visit nearby beaches with our two dogs. Will 100% use Aspects holidays again and would have no hesitation recommending this company.

Cozy traditional cottage which has been decorated to the highest order with very good facilities including excellent linen, kitchen equipment and very new, room adjustable new electric heating system. In a very quiet location but with easy access to all the attractions on West Kernow. Highly recommended for a restful getaway.

A lovely, clean, well equipped and homely cottage with a good sized garden. The cottage is well placed to explore all the delights of the surrounding area, we will return! Thank you.

Lovely little cottage and lovely garden. Clean and cosy. Ideal location for visiting other areas. The beach at perranuthnoe lovely and dog friendly and only a short distance from the cottage. Very peaceful at the cottage. We really enjoyed our stay

Cottage quiet and well situated for the Penzance - Falmouth area of Cornwall without too much travelling

We had a wonderful summer holiday here with our young daughter and small dog.

It’s the perfect location for exploring the coastline, we spent many happy hours at Praa sands and a few trips into Porthleven.

The cottage is well equipped, incredibly clean and very welcoming.

Would highly recommend.

Lovely location and fitted outr with everything you need. Short drive to a number of lovely beaches. Bit of a trek to the local pubs but that probably saved me a fortune.

Highly recommended traditional stone cottage. So beautifully well kept, clean, comfortable, and well stocked with utensils and for those with kids the blessing of a washer/dryer, airer and outside washing-line in the garden, which our dog loved. Good location close to Penzance.

Very conveniently situated for getting to surrounding beaches, towns and places to eat.

A lovely quiet cottage 5 minutes in car from the beach at Perranuthnoe. Well equipped , tasteful decor and pretty outside patio and garden

Lovely, relaxing place to stay. Great location for coastal walking; and swimming. Will definitely go back and stay.

Maytree Cottage is a cosy, well decorated and well equipped cottage and it was especially good that we could also take our dog. A good location for visiting both coasts and good local dog walks if you don't want to venture far. Good to have a garden but be warned that the banks are quite low, so bouncy dogs need to be on a lead. A lovely break and we would go again.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. We are very pleased to hear that you had a great holiday, and we love hearing that your dog enjoyed being on holiday too. Although many of our properties are dog friendly, this does not always mean that gardens are fully secure for dogs and we will always try our very best to highlight this within the website photos or descriptions so that guests know what to expect when they arrive. We hope that this did not cause too much trouble for your holiday and we look forward to seeing you again. Lucy, Customer Services
