Some lovely quotes from our Guest Book


Another wonderful stay in our “second home” Temple Cottage. A cosy cottage filled with love. Thank you Jacki. Andrea and Mike, Sept 2019


We had a wonderful stay in Temple Cottage. The feeling is warm and cosy and extremely homely. It is a simple “squeeze” away from the heart of Port Isaac. Thank you so much we would recommend this to anyone. Sarah, Flora, Kitty & Tilly, and dogs Pablo & Rosie, August 2019

Another lovely stay at Temple Cottage, our 4th year here, we are already looking forward to our 5th! Katie & Tom, February 2019

This was our third Christmas stay at Temple Cottage and as always, we immediately felt at home. Our arrival was to a Christmas tree, bottle of wine and scrummy biscuits and dog treats. The cottage is so very well equipped and perfectly located for the beach and of course the Golden Lion which had a tendency to draw me along Squeeze Belly Alley to its door!
Possibly one of the most comfortable beds I’ve slept in, possibly one of the most comfortable armchairs I’ve sat in, possibly one of the most comfortable sofas I’ve slumped into. A lovely perfect cottage thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thank you Jacki once again for letting us stay.

Second time we’ve stayed at Temple Cottage and once again didn’t disappoint! Everything you should need and in the best location possible. Very warm and cosy for a winter break!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Port Issac. Temple Cottage seems to be part of the tourist trail as it stradles Squeeze ee Belly Alley affording us the opportunity to “photo bomb” every time we walked through the front door! It was good to be so near all local amenities – only a short stroll to the harbour and restaurants.

A lovely cosy cottage and perfectly situated.

Nick, Elaine & Isaac, September 2018

Temple Cottage is charming and well equipped and tastefully furnished. It is in a perfect location close to the harbour, restaurants and amenities, in this now famous bustling fishing village of Port Isaac. Communications with the owner, Jacki, were superb and the welcome letter and bottle of wine and biscuits on arrival were a lovely touch. We all had a lovely stay in this beautiful cottage and thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

“Couldn’t fault it, warm, cozy, and welcoming, which began even before we had opened the door, as the Christmas tree and lights were visible through the window. Perfectly placed near the harbour, everything to hand. The cottage very well equipped, the beds large and comfy. Simply perfect!”

“We had a lovely stay at Temple Cottage in the heart of beautiful Port Isaac. Just a short stroll from the harbour, shops and restaurants it was a perfect base for our holiday in Cornwall. The cottage has all the comforts of home and is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. I would definitely recommend a visit.”

What a great week we have just had at Temple Cottage. A cottage full of character in a fabulous location only a minutes walk from the harbour and restaurants. Our children loved exploring the harbour in the evenings whilst we took our own wine and cushions down to the harbour to enjoy the sunset. I can highly recommend this property, perfect family base at a competitive price. A trip to Trebarwith Strand is well worth it if you are into body boarding, thanks for some great memories 🙂
