We had a great week at Valley View with our dog who loved exercising in the dog field from which there are wonderful views of the sea and Michael’s Mount. The accommodation is excellent with friendly and helpful owners who live next door.
We immediately felt very much at home, the cottage is well equipped, warm and comfortable. Penzance, Lands End and St Ives are within easy travelling distance and we enjoyed visiting several beautiful gardens and cliff top walks. All in all we enjoyed a very special week.

Our second visit to Valley view and we always find the cottage clean, cosy and comfortable. Just the right size for the 2 of us and our Labrador. Ideal location for us to explore the areas of Cornwall we love. We had lovely weather and enjoyed the great welcome pack with our dog included in the treats! We will definitely be back!

Another great stay at Valley View. This is our 3rd visit and we love it every time. Great location, easy to get to both coasts. Comfortable and everything you could need. The pup felt right at home as well

Luvly location very quite but not too far from penzance and St Ives would definitely recommend

Valley View is an ideal location in a quite location but close to main routes to towns. Ideal for touring this part of Cornwall. The cottage was excellent in every way & could not have asked for better. Highly recommend Valley View for a great holiday cottage.

Love this property far enough out for a bit of piece and quite but not too far from Penzance and St Ives for a visit around the shops and beaches. Perfect retreat for two.

For people taking their dogs on holiday this is the perfect ‘get away’. The location is wonderful, rural countryside, quiet but close to Penzance and St Ives. The accommodation is perfect for a couple and their dogs. All on one level, countryside walks, exercise field. Can’t praise this enough. Perfect.

Fabulous stay in this wonderful cottage, ideally situated, and has everything you need for a great holiday in Cornwall.

The cottage was very nice and location very quiet and good for taking my dog for a walk in the morning and evening, The cottage was very clean with nice facilities inside

Lovely property in lovely location in between St Ives and Penzance ,well equipped, very clean and comfortable, wifi and Netflix included. Southerly facing patio. We had a lovely holiday here. Highly recommend

A lovely little cottage with everything you could need. Perfectly located for travelling about Cornwall. This is our second time here and we love it.

We loved our week at Valley View, it is in a quiet peaceful location. The cottage is very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The small patio is sunny just right for enjoying a glass of wine.

Lovely comfortable stay in Valley view. The property has everything you need and was the right size for the 2 of us and our Labrador. Welcome pack was appreciated and our dog well catered for aswell! Ideal location to visit the places in Cornwall we love. Great weather was a bonus! We will definitely return.

What can we say Dan and Michela are wonderful hosts and we felt so omfortable We will certainly recommend to family and friends Everything first class for us and our two dogs We didn't want to leave

Very helpful,pleasant owner.Lent us his tablet when our Samsung devices wouldnt connect to the wifi Spotlessly clean cottage,just the right size for a couple. Good shower,comfy bed and well equipped kitchen. The cottage is in the perfect area for the places we wanted to visit eg St Ives, Lands End and Penzance We thoroughly enjoyed our stay Thanks Dan

We have just come back from a relaxing stay at Valley View. We loved the treats which we found on our arrival and there were also treats for our two dogs which was a lovely touch. The accommodation was very clean and well equipped and is an ideal base to explore. The owners were really friendly and informative and hopefully we will return in the future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week’s stay at Valley View, booked to celebrate my husband’s 80th birthday on 13th August with family who were staying in St. Ives. The cottage enjoys a picturesque and peaceful location away from the hustle & bustle of Penzance and St.Ives, yet close enough to be able to easily shop for necessities, and within easy driving distance of the beautiful resorts and beaches in this part of Cornwall. Valley View is well equipped, spacious and spotlessly clean, with the advantage of a large field close at hand to exercise any 4-legged guest in safety. The owners/hosts live in an adjoining property and are close at hand to deal with any requests, but they are in no way intrusive. We would have no hesitation in booking this property for future holidays.

Great cottage for a week in Cornwall close to St Ives and Penzance. Just right for the two of us and our dog. The owners were lovely and very helpful with advice on where to go. Very nice welcome pack with beer, wine, biscuits and cake. A large enclosed field was also available for exercising the dog off lead which he loved.

If you are requiring a country quiet escape Valley View is the place

We loved this property and would definitely stay here again. It had everything we needed, plus extras, such as Netflix and a radio to connect your own music. Dan & Michaela who are owners live next door and do everything they can to ensure you have a good stay. We had problems with our phones connecting to wifi and they very kindly leant us a tablet to use to book tickets for days out and plan trips. The location is fab for getting around without too much travelling and such a peaceful area. We highly recommend this property.

Valley view we found very cosy well equipped and comfortable. In addition the owners were very helpful with local knowledge. The use of nearby field with excellent coastal views was very convenient and safe for our four legged friends plus adjacent bridleway and footpath. Would have no hesitation in recommending valley view and returning again.

The property was beautifully presented to a high standard and very clean. Perfect for a couple. Rural location but ideally situated to drive to all the attractions and walking the South West Cornwall coastal path. We could walk to the local pub The White Hart along St Michael's Way, 20 minutes. Parking for 1 vehicle. Welcome pack and a few essentials to get you started. Tesco and Sai sburys 10 min drive. Owner on site, very friendly. Highly recommended. Holiday - recommend St Michael's Mount, Porthcurno museum, Geevor Tin Mine, Lost Gardens of Heligan. Eden Project way too expensive for what it was £75 for a couple. Walked many miles of the coastal path, taking in St Ives, Carbis. Porthleven, Kynance, Lizard Point, Lands End, Gunwalloe, Church Cove, Porthkidney, Mousehole. Be warned car parking expensive - consider getting a National Trust Membership.

Loved our break away in Cornwall. Valley view was in a gorgeous location, picturesque, and very dog friendly. Loved the little touches left for us on arrival, dog biccies and bowls, and human treats too. Also dog friendly suggestions for pubs, and use of field nearby, plus only a 10 minute drive from St Ives. Anything you could think of that you may need had been provided at Valley View. Only downside was lack of Internet and signal though I believe this isn't normally an issue!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad that you liked it there. Many parts of Cornwall have poor phone signal due to the rural nature of many locations, however, the wifi isn't usually an issue here, like you mention. We will continue to monitor this though and let the owners know so that they can check on it. Thanks for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Services

We absolutely loved our stay at Valley View ???? Dan and Michaela were so lovely and helpful and made our stay even better. On our arrival we had such amazing welcome gifts for us and our dogs which certainly went down literally very well indeed !! Everything about Valley View was so perfect. Really well equipped. Bed was so very comfortable giving us the perfect nights sleep ?? Such a peaceful place to stay. We are hoping so much to return again as soon as we can so THANKYOU so much xxxx

The property was spotless, the bed was so comfy and everything you could need was there! Great parking space and lovely environment also. Checked in early after a long drive which we were very grateful of. 100% will be back.

Another lovely stay at Valley View. We visited back in 2019 and this time visited with our pup. He loved the location and walks up the lane. Dan and Michaela were lovely and helpful. Easy check in, everything as expected. We’ll likely be back again.

We had a wonderful two week holiday at Valley View; it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Dan and Michaela had left us many local goodies, which were much appreciated (including some treats for our pup); this meant we did not have to immediately go shopping. Dan recommended places we might like to visit and leant us maps, etc., he was around if we needed him but did not intrude at all. We found Valley View to be in an excellent, central location to get to most places in Cornwall and would highly recommend it - we are looking forward to staying there again soon.

Lovely, well-appointed cottage. Warm and comfortable. It was an excellent facility to have access to a large enclosed field to exercise our two little dogs. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location was very central and convenient for outings to places in all directions. Our only slight negative was the single track road, which we felt wasn't safe to walk our dogs to any local amenity. Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a very peaceful retreat right in the countryside with easy access to both coasts and all towns.

A big part of our holiday is the accommodation and this time we got everything we were expecting and hoping for. We couldn't have asked for more! We had a couple of questions during our stay and needed to ring the Aspect Holidays Office - they were friendly and efficient.

Our hosts lived just next door to our accommodation and we found them to be friendly, informative and helpful suggesting things to do and places to go. We can totally recommend Aspect Holidays and Valley View.

A lovely cottage situated in the countryside but within easy access to Penzance and not far from St Ives. It was clean and tidy and spacious. We had a lovely week at Valley View and recommend it for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.

Ideal cottage for a couple to relax in. Situated away from the hustle and bustle of St Ives. Close by lots of must see sights of the west of Cornwall such as St Michael’s Mount, Minack Theatre, Trengwithan House and Loe Bank. We spent a lovely day on the Isles of Scilly which we accessed from the ferry from Penzance.

Very nice and quiet easy place to start some nice country side walks from and nice for dogs

Wonderful property in a beautiful location. Spotlessly clean & we were made to feel very welcome by Dan the owner. The wine, bread, Cornish cheese, butter & jam was a lovely touch. The terrace area was perfect for relaxing on after days out exploring the area. Would recommend this gorgeous barn conversion to anyone looking for an idyllic retreat in Cornwall

Highly recommend this cottage and its location.

Fab cottage more than expected , lots of stuff to make your holiday fab

Valley view is a outstanding property in a amazing rural location ideal for those times when you just want to escape from it all and be immersed in the peace and tranquillity of a beautiful scenic location.

Best cottage we have stayed in. Would recommend this cottage.Beautiful countryside stunning view 's and great walk 's 10/10

Lovely property but a bit to remote for us as we had two dogs and we were up a big hill so not such a good walk back

Very clean and comfortable. Ideal location for visiting both the North and South Coasts of Cornwall. Wifi is limited. Would definitely recommend.

Loved everything about Valley View. Lovely peaceful location so relaxing after a day at the beach, small outside area was perfect. Plus only 10 minutes drive to St. Ives or Penzance! Would 100% recommend.

A very well equipped cottage in a good location.

Thank you lovely location extremely clean and well thought out cottage . Dog friendly ideal for south coastal path walking

Lovely views we will be back

We have had a wonderful holiday at Valley View - cottage beautifully furnished and immaculate! Everyone was very welcoming, especially Biscuit the dog and his owner family who live nearby! Had lots of adventures exploring the stunning coast and surrounding area. We saw a wealth of fascinating wild life that is unique to the area e.g. choughs, a myriad of native wild flowers and also enjoyed the historical sites and the Pen Lee Museum and Gallery. A very central location as we visited Mawnan Porth (excellent beach for families and particularly dogs), Penzance, Cot Valley, Geevor Mine, Sennen Cove, St Just (particularly the Cook Book!) and many more local places. The staff of Aspects were very thoughtful and most helpful as were the hosts of our cottage. Thank you!

We had a great time and enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was cosy, clean and comfortable. Our hosts Dan and Michaela gave us a very warm welcome and provided local food for our first days! The little terrace was great to enjoy the morning sun. The venue is quiet located, only some minutes drive to Penzance. I really can recommend the Cottage for a little escape from the daily hazels!

Fantastic place, lovely welcome from our hosts and a doggy treat box was a very nice touch, hosts are full of information if & when required, as in our case parking at St Ives Rugby Club all day £6 and short bus ride to St Ives town centre.... will be back for sure :)

Lovely comfortable cottage in peaceful location. Perfect for exploring west of Cornwall. Made to feel very welcome especially by superb welcome pack. Best we’ve ever had. Wonderful!

A lovely little space tucked away up a quiet lane but only minutes from the sea. The perfect base for exploring the whole of South/West Cornwall. Very good value for money and perfect for a couple. Would 100% return.

We loved Valley View from the moment we arrived, it was very clean and tidy and felt more like a home than a holiday cottage. For us it was in just the right location for both West Penwith and the Lizard. The bonus was the wonderful field for the dogs which was very welcome and the views great. We will certainly return, hopefully this year.

Jane Kiely

Great base, clean and comfortable One of the best cottages we have stayed in.

Perfect location. Peace and quiet but so close to everything . Dan and Michaella very welcoming with some real nice welcoming treats , dog included . Will visit again .

Comfortable cottage in peaceful countryside & good location for exploring West Cornwall. Large field available for exercising the dogs is a real bonus (from which there are views towards Mounts Bay & St Michael's Mount).
Would recommend to anyone wanting quiet & tranquility.

Very disappointed with the standard of this property.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review, and again, we would like to apologise that your chosen property was not to the standard that you would have expected. I would just like to reassure you again, that following my visit to the property during your time there, I had spoken to the property owners, and can confirm that following a further visit to the property, everything that you had raised has now been addressed. Again, very sorry, and I hope that the way in which we handled everything while you were here, has reassured you, that we do take things like this very seriously. Tanya, Customer Services ADDITIONAL NOTE- this property has since had a change of owners, who have made further improvements to the property

Valley View is a really nice, friendly, comfortable and quiet place to stay, and a very good starting point for the exploration of western Cornwall.

Would recommend this spotless modern cottage for couple or small families wanting a peaceful base to explore west Cornwall. A really enjoyable stay. There were lots of nice touches around the property and the owners had thought of everything - well-equipped kitchen, plenty of crockery, lots of towels and enough storage space. Highly recommended.


This cottage was ideal for us- out of the way of the busy towns, nice and peaceful. Just right for us and our baby. Very clean and the tea, coffee, milk and biscuits were a very nice touch. We would definitely like to return next year!

Pretty cottage and a great location for walks

Perfect little place in the countryside but not to far from beautiful places to visit. St. Michaels Mount was stunning.

Valley View is a cosy, very well equipped and clean little cottage with owners attached. It is ideal for one dog and has wooden floors with dog walking nearby. It is quite isolated and is ideal if you want peace and quiet. Parking is very handy right next door in a courtyard area that is shared with other occupants in the surrounding 3 properties. Once on the main road it is easy to access St Ives, Penzance etc. No fenced garden for dog so it can get into the lane but due to its remote nature there is little traffic. It was just a little small for our taste.
