About Us

Little Ferriby was empty and up for sale in 2012. We fell in love with it and purchased in December 2012.
Opened as a holiday let at the start of 2014, after we laboured over weekends to lay new ceramic floors, installed new kitchen units, new central heating and a new multi-fuel log burner, painted and decorated.

Guest Reviews

A wonderful family holiday in a cosy cottage, scones, jam and cream were waiting on arrival on a blustery day which changed into a warm sunny week. Brew, our boxer dog, loved to sit at the door watching the world go by and our tortoise loved to wander around the garden eating the dandelions and plantain and watching everything from the garden gate! The Queens Arm was just along the road and the walks around this stunning area were right on the doorstep. Botallack Mine was a 5 minute walk away, or if you're feeling lazy there is a large National Trust car park with a small café and tables to sit outside and enjoy the amazing view, the coffee was delicious. Thank you Maureen, Nick and I, and Brew of course, will definitely be back.
Sue RBeautiful location and idyllic cottage
This is a lovely authentic tin miners cottage. The front garden was ideal for the children to play in safely although take care as the front gate opens straight onto the road which is quiet but is on a bus route. The pub next door does great food but book a table to be sure of eating there. A short walk takes you to the fantastic coastal path with its old tin mines and amazing views of the coastline. The cottage is 15 minutes from Penzance and about 25 minutes from St Ives so is in a great location. We had a great holiday.
John AA charming cottage next to a lovely pub and 2 minutes walk from the stunning coastal paths.
Best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in and very clean too. Loads to do in the area and mins from the coast path. We had a glorious week weather wise and saw Poldark being filmed on the mines just around the corner. Great holiday, for us and the dogs. Credit to the owner. We will be booking again!
Angela MPerfect holiday hideaway!
