An excellent place in an unspoilt part of CornwallBlue Monkey was recommended by friends of my daughter-in-law who had stayed there. It needed to be child friendly, close to the beach, and comfortable as we travelled in November.
It was all of these things and more. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there celebrating my 70th Birthday with friends and family. Nothing in the property was overlooked and we felt really at home and very comfortable
Stormy, windy, sunny and cold. We had it all and we loved it!
One of the cosiest, yet comfortable coastal cottages we’ve stayed in; plenty of space, log fires and beds for everyone. A group of us stayed, coastal walks, kitesurfing nearby, even a brief surf and friendly pubs. Will definitely be back. Thankyou.
Far and away our favourite cottage and place to stay in CornwallWith a long list of boxes to be ticked I spent hours trawling through cottages online looking for a special one for an important week (my birthday was at the end!). I know I’m fussy but we’ve made mistakes…… I wanted accommodation that was dog friendly √ where we’d enjoy spending time indoors if the weather was bad √ preferably with an open fire √ and with a ’boutique’ feel √ somewhere cosy but not cluttered √, an outside area for our dog to enjoy √, and us too √, no pink carpets, patterned sofas or horse brasses√ somewhere I could cook if we fancied eating in √, a bbq in case husband managed to catch any fish (there’s a great fishmonger in Looe so we found out) √, big comfortable beds √, wireless √, Sky TV √ contemporary bathroom √ beautiful scenery √ dog friendly beach within walking distance √ great pubs within walking distance √ parking nearby √ food delivery √ No doubt I shall remember more later….!! I think by now though that you will get my drift! Blue Monkey was absolutely perfect in every way & we both long to return maybe with family and friends next time. There is just one thing I hadn’t banked on, the minute you walk through the front door you can feel the happy times, it’s almost as if you can hear the laughter. Thanks Blue Monkey et al for the most wonderful week.
Had a fabulous time at Blue Monkey, stunning place and scenic, cosy location. An absolute delight.
Great locatiom child and dog friendly areaLovely family house, sparkling clean with soft white towels in the bedrooms. We had five adults, one toddler and 3 dogs staying and had plenty of space. Fresh flowers in all the rooms and a bottle of wine and scones on arrival was a lovely touch. The large family kitchen is very well equipped.
Excellent location, being within short walking distance of the car park and also the pubs. Lovely costal walk nearby.
High end accommodation, perfect for a family holidayStayed with young family and had a fantastic relaxing week. Accommodation really is luxury with amazing master bedroom and ensuite. Very well equipped with pretty much everything you need for small kids. Great location very near beaches and great pubs. Local shops are good but worth doing an online shop
A beautiful coastal retreat in an idyllic location
Blue Monkey will not disappoint!
We arrived to a lovely welcome of homemade scones, clotted cream, local jam and a bottle of wine in the fridge! The perfect start to a wonderful holiday! The house was beautifully presented throughout and extremely well equipped for all. A real home from home.
Thank you for making our stay so special. We have already recommended Blue Monkey to friends and family and can’t wait to come back!
Lovely house in lovely positionWe chose Blue Monkey because while it is in Cornwall, you are spared the nightmare of driving down through to the far south or north of the County. While only just in Cornwall, Cawsand has all the trappings of a typical Cornish village. All very quaint and picturesque but without any tawdry hat. The cottage itself is a very well modernised three storey house with bags of room. A very large kitchen and courtyard garden make eating and drinking at home a pleasure. But Cawsand/Kingsand is well provided with pubs of all kinds. The Devonport is particularly good for food and the Rising Sun for beer. The beaches are great for lounging and swimming and even in the July 2013 heat wave were never too busy. Wonderful costal walks make it ideal for dogs and the rock pools make it perfect for kids. The little ferry to Barbican is ideal for a day trip to Plymouth where we enjoyed the aquarium. All in all a perfect spot for a family holiday.
Being 2 families wishing to holiday together,spanning the age from 0 to 70’s,and needing space and activities for all, Blue Monkey gave us this in abundance.Unlike other viewed properties, staircase was wide and no difficult stairs to reach the bedrooms.As one entered B M there was a very welcoming feel. Fresh flowers in the sitting room + kitchen, in the fridge wine and clotted cream and fire laid ready for a lit match.
Nearby walks long or short to suit one’s taste or a ferry ride to Plymouth,takes about 30 mins from Cawsand,over the road from B M the sea and sand await one,just seemed whatever pursuit you wished for,was on hand.Would certainly recommend to friends and family saying, a holiday in B M needs to be experienced asap. Can’t wait to return “To the forgotten corner of Cornwall” and stay in this luxury abode.
Having our first ever holiday with our new little boy aged just 11 weeks was a trip which was very important to us. Having been to Blue Monkey before, returning here was an easy decision to make. It is superbly kitted out for babies and young children and the woodburner made a huge difference for keeping the place homely and warm on some chilly nights! Walks on Whitsand, Rame Head and over to Mount Edgcumbe were all stunning and and some good times in te Devonport as always! Having dogs to stay at Blue Monkey was a massive plus too.
