The Experience

You get so much more than just three cottages here: a heated pool, a grass tennis court and lovely landscaped gardens to wander through. Raphaela and Kristofer live in the pretty Georgian house; Well Studio is opposite and has a double-height sitting room with a wood-burner belting out the heat. A door opens onto a private garden and patio area and, beyond, green fields and a river walk. The mezzanine bedroom looks down onto the sitting room and is light and airy with a comfy double bed, and a window onto woodland. The galley kitchen is small-ish but has all you need; the neat white bathroom is off here. Of the other two properties, one sleeps two, and the other sleeps four. Cake, logs, garden flowers, a chilled bottle of wine and robes for the pool await you. Walk to the branch line at St Erth station and you’re only a ten-minute train ride from arty St Ives, Penzance is a bit further in the other direction. Hit the beach, discover top-notch restaurants (your hosts are happy to book), stay put and lap up the peace in this utterly beautiful spot. A trio of great little boltholes.

We have stayed at Ennys twice a year for the last ten years and we have stayed in all three of the properties there. We love West Cornwall and we love using Ennys as our base. We were booked in to be there in two weeks time but due to the virus sadly that is not to be. (Oh to be at Ennys now that spring is there!) All the properties are spotless , warm, very well equipped and tastefully furnished. Raphaela and Kristofer are a charming couple, fun to be with and always on hand if advice is needed.. Nothing is too much trouble.

Amazing stay at ennys we stayed at the go dolphin cottage apartment. The room was amazing and spacious had everything we needed and more. Little touches we were given like treats in our fridge made us smile. The grounds are superb the pool the tennis court and gardens made it even more special. It was nice to be away from the bustle of cornwall and be in the countryside but still near enough to explore and see the beautiful coasts. Raphs was the perfect host and made us feel like family her tips and helpfulness made our trip magical thanks again until next time xxx

Laura, Houghton le spring

We are regular annual visitors to Ennys and are booked in for 2020. The reason we return? We love the peace, beauty and quiet of Ennys coupled with the comfortable accommodation and amazing hospitality of the hosts. It is certainly a special and unique place to stay with its own large outdoor pool and grass tennis court. The location is excellent for reaching many exciting activities eg coastal walking and biking in South West Cornwall. A gem!

Celia, Brackley

We stayed in Granary Cottage and we were shown all the rental properties at Ennys. They are all of a very high standard. The Hypno bed and and excellent bedding added to the luxury of the stay. The grounds are a joy to walk around and the heated pool a real plus. Very peaceful, beautiful environment where switching off comes very easily and, although there are many interesting places to visit nearby, we found we were very happy just staying put.

Jill, Llandevaud

We had an absolutely brilliant stay at Enny's. Gorgeous rooms, wonderful hosts, beautiful gardens and peace, peace, peace. Just sublime. Cannot wait to go back.

Carol, London

A superb oasis in a perfect location close to many romantic coves, and attractions. The accommodation is great quality, but it's the pool and tennis court that made our stay so fun and relaxing, definitely recommend and Raffy's is a joy!
