Weitere wichtige Infos
Please check in by approximately 9pm on day of arrival. If a later time is required, this needs to be arranged in advance of booking.
Parking is on street - the best space is down by the church where there's an open area and you can park for free. You can stop closer to the house to load and unload if needed.
Mobile phone signals are not always reliable inside the house. You will usually get a signal on the top floor or in the garden.
You may want to go into Penzance or Newlyn to eat as the King William in Madron doesn't yet serve food, though it's nice for a drink, or pop down to Heamoor (the next village) for a bite to eat in the pub there.
No smoking in the house, please do that outside.
No candles anywhere except kitchen - and please use your own candles.
This is a small village and a quiet area. We expect you to be considerate and aware of our neighbours, so please keep noise to a minimum after 10pm. No parties.
This house is also normally home to our two lovely cats, and it is important to be aware of their safety and wellbeing at all times if they are also resident (I usually take them away with me if I am not staying in the house with you, but please make sure you clear up anything - e.g. glass breakages - that could be a hazard to animals).
Please ask if you don't know how to work something, or if there is anything you need or you need any information, and we will do our best to help.
No smoking in the bedroom areas, (and it goes without saying, no illegal substances or activities.)
No additional guests without permission, booking through Airbnb and appropriate payment. I prefer not to take additional guests unless there's a very good reason.
Please take care of the house - many parts are antique: hinges, latches, taps, doorknobs and suchlike are not always standard type fittings and need to be treated with care; ceilings are low and designed for people much smaller from previous centuries, so do mind your heads. Walls are equally old and in places crumbly where old cob (horsehair and mud) plasterwork still exists. It doesn't take much of a knock to break a dent in walls so please go carefully.
PLEASE NOTE THE WOODBURNING STOVE IS OUT OF USE WITH A JACKDAW NEST IN THE CHIMNEY. DO NOT USE.
If you borrow maps, books or leaflets, kindly return them for the next guests to use.
Please leave everything as you find it and leave a note on any breakages or losses.
Also a request. As I have ME (chronic fatigue syndrome), I am especially vulnerable to infections, so please let me know in advance of arriving if you think you may be ill with something infectious, so I can take some precautions to protect my health. I really appreciate your consideration with this.
THANK YOU FOR TAKING CARE OF OUR HOME! We really hope you will enjoy your stay.
We like to communicate with prospective guests by email/airbnb message before they arrive - this is important to us as in a small house guests need to feel comfortable with us and our cats, and we with them. We only accept guests who are happy to exchange emails so we can get to know each other a little bit before they arrive.
We will normally check guests in and out and will be on hand locally to contact and help out if need arises. Please let us know in advance if you have particular access requirements.
Pets are not normally allowed as we have cats.
There will be a welcome pack waiting for guests including milk and a few essential supplies.
Hi, I'm Rebecca.
I'm a former journalist taking a break from the metropolitan fray in my Cornish cottage in a quiet village just outside Penzance. Cat- and book-loving guests welcome!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the house or rooms, and I'll do my best to answer as soon as I can. Make sure to look at both my listings - the studio and the Traditional Granite Cottage by Sea, so as to get all the photos of the house.
