Shirley and Jon were very welcoming hosts and generous with their knowledge of the area. Skipper's Retreat was a home from home, a super place to stay and an excellent location to explore the southwest of Cornwall, I would recommend this to anyone.

We enjoyed a couple of very relaxing days at Skipper's Retreat. The accommodation is very comfortable and had everything we needed. The location is great, and we particularly enjoyed being able to walk to St Erth station and get the train into St Ives, a big bonus not using the car for a couple of days. Shirley was good enough to supply home made rolls and milk, and Jon was on hand with local knowledge. Wish we had more time there. Many thanks Shirley, we will be back soon!

We had a great week in Cornwall. Shirley and John were really welcoming and always happy to help. The place is bigger than I had thought, with a large lounge full of books, board games and a television. The bedroom was quiet and bed very comfortable, with a fantastic shower in the ensuite bathroom. This is a beautiful spot to explore Cornwall from and very good value for money. Thanks! We'd love to come back!

Fantastic value for money and a really comfortable situation with full kitchen facilities and separate bedroom with ensure. The location is fantastic being a couple of miles out of town, although a car is handy if you need to get out and about. We would certainly stay here again as Shirley and Jon are great hosts

Skippers Retreat is a very special little find. It's wonderfully located for all the great things to do in the area and is a super comfortable gem of place. Beautifully and thoughtfully decorated, spacious and light, private and entirely self contained. It feels like a home away from home. Shirley and John couldn't have been more wonderful, warm and welcoming hosts who did everything they could to make my stay a fantastic one. They're lucky I didn't make off with their sweet little Yorkie! Skippers Retreat is a fabulous find and I'd want to stay here again next time.

Shirley an John are really wonderful hosts. They welcomed us not only withrolls, butter and milk and had lots of recommondations about exploring the area. It was wonderful waking up with the sun shining through the big window in the living room and having breakfast in the outside.

I live with my partner Jon, we have four grown children and seven grandchildren ranging from 2 to 18.
I enjoy reading, walking with or without our dog Joe, gardening, music (am in 2 choirs locally), rug hooking and cooking. We have a camper called Betsy and love just getting in and going off.
