This detached, spacious house, situated down its own lane two miles from Penzance, can accommodate up to six people in three bedrooms.

Avallon is a wonderful, spacious detached holiday home just outside Penzance on the road to Lands End, situated down its own private lane surrounded by fields, in seven acres of its own land. The property has two double bedrooms and a bunk room, as well as a family bathroom and a ground floor shower room meaning it can accommodate up to six people. There is a kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room, along with a conservatory overlooking the gardens where the children can play out in the sun. There is also ample off road parking and with so much to see and do in this area of Cornwall, Avallon makes the perfect base for a getaway exploring this stunning, unspoilt region.


A charming detached cottage in a fantastic area for exploring the local areas. I do believe the grounds could be maintained better, as the "7 acres" of fields, are actually left with grass reaching your thighs! No good for hayfever sufferers. Also there are outbuildings at the back with disused items such as a car, greenhouse and various furniture which I believe could lead to a safety issue and slightly detracts the beauty of the cottage. The tiles in upstairs bathroom are loose, and there is a wall in a bedroom where the plaster has blown. I would of thought these items would of been addressed at the start of the season, but never mind. All this aside we would return as the cottage itself is delightful. The posy of flowers and chocolate cookies on arrival, was a lovely touch and we hope to return one day. Our boys 5 & 7 didn't want to leave!!! Thank you for a lovely stay x

We stayed here from 16th-23rd April. The cottage is absolutely beautiful, set in a peaceful, tranquil location. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. The tv and wifi reception were a bit hit & miss but it never caused us a problem! The location is brilliant to access Lands End/St Ives/Penzance/Hayle, nowhere is too far away! We enjoyed the beaches at Sennan Cove & Hayle (great for dogs before 1st May). The fields which surround the cottage are fantastic for the dogs & watching any wildlife. We'll definitely be going back...the best cottage we've ever stayed in!

Stayed here 5th-12th March, very easy to find well signposted, first impressions this is a homely place and ourselves and the dogs loved it. Basically we only used one of the double rooms but there is ample space for four more people. Beds were comfy, central heating worked a treat, showers were spot on. Its a central location and we travelled around 450 miles in the week we were there. Had to play around with the wifi password its wrong in the plastic folder but correct in visitors book? If I can I will be back again. Loved it! Didn't see any deer but that's probably our fault!

Plenty of living space, plenty of room. The gardens and fields are great for dogs.

We had a fantastic 10 days at Avallon in January. The house was clean, cosy and warm. It is ideally situated for exploring the end of Cornwall and the lovely beaches which were nice & quiet. We loved the house and the surrounding enclosed fields, perfect for a small dog to roam securely. The house was very well equipped and had everything we needed. We hope to go back. Highly recommended.
