    The Old Dolphin Cottage is a very quirky house. The Location is excellent. It could be a real gem, but it needs a refurbishment. Only the bathroom and the kitchen are ok. The furniture in the living and in the bedrooms is old and a mixture of everything. The house smells damp when you open the door. And the carpet in the kitchen/diner smells like dog urine. We would not book it again.

    The bedroom arrangement meant you had to go through the main bedroom from the second one, in order to use facilities downstairs. This would be fine for a family perhaps but was entirely inappropriate for 2 couples staying there. As a result we had to find alternative accommodation at very short notice. A pity this layout had not been stated at the time of seeing the advertisement. A phone call to the lady running the cottage was not returned.

    Old Dolphin Cottage is full of character and steeped in history. A memorable place to stay. Traditionally furnished, the cottage was clean and comfortable. It is ideally placed to explore The Lizard and the South West Coastal path right from the doorstep. The pub is nearby and offers good food and atmosphere. Being able to use the car park at the edge of the village was very helpful as parking near the cottage is very limited. We thoughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend.
