Please note: A maximum of one medium size or two small breed dogs accepted.

With sweeping views down across fields and out towards the bay of Penzance, Sparrows Nest is conveniently located for accessing some of the most beautiful parts of West Cornwall such as Lamorna Cove and Mousehole.  This detached property is snuggled into the sleepy hamlet of Sheffield with the Kings Arms pub located just a mile away in the village of Paul.  A handy public footpath from the back of the property will take you to the village and is just a ten minute walk

Sparrows Nest is set back from the road with parking for one large car at the front on a concrete and paved surface.

A paved pathway leads up to the useful porch which opens into the comfortable living room.  Ample easy seating is provided with attractive slate flooring and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.  A feature wood burner compliments the desired heating levels.

Off the living room is the separate dining room with seating for six people.  An attractive oak staircase leads up to the bedrooms.  From the dining room an external door leads out to the pretty back garden.

A very generously sized and well equipped kitchen with lovely views from the window provides a super working space with ample storage. Off the kitchen is a shower room WC with shower cubicle and wash hand basin.

Upstairs you will find the three carpeted and centrally heated bedrooms comprising of one king, one double and one twin bedroom.  The larger of the double bedrooms and twin bedroom both have views out across the countryside and out towards the sea with the second double bedroom overlooking the front garden.  Ample hanging and drawer space provided.

The family bathroom WC with bath, shower over, wash hand basin and heated towel rail completes the upstairs layout.

The property benefits from pretty gardens to the front and back. When enjoying a morning coffee in the back garden the view out across the neighbouring fields and out to sea is rather special.

Sheffield itself is a small hamlet and just a short drive away from the popular visitor destinations of Mousehole, PenzanceNewlyn and Lamorna.  In the nearby village of Paul you will find a local pub and Parish Church both worth a visit and just a mile away.

The nearest shop is in Mousehole and can be reached on foot taking approximately 20 minutes or 5 minutes by car.  For a wider selection of amenities, the town of Penzance is an easy ten minute drive.  Penzance also benefits from having a number of leisure facilities including; Penzance Leisure Centre and Savoy Cinema should the Cornish weather decide to mis-behave!

The beautiful golden sandy beaches at Porthcurno and Sennen Cove are an approximate 8 mile drive from Sparrows Nest.

PLEASE NOTE
- This property welcomes two small dogs or one medium sized dog only

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
