    The Owners: Kathleen and Mike Kessell Eight years ago we returned to the Portreath area where my husband grew up as we wanted to give our children the opportunity to grow up in such a wonderful place too. We discovered the cottage where we now live in Tolskithy Valley and simply fell in love with it. It is the perfect spot from which the whole family can enjoy the outdoors with its beauty and varied interests. Some nights tea goes in the oven, then we take a walk on the beach and come back when it is cooked. The valley is sheltered so we often enjoy eating outdoors. It is on these days that we remember just how privileged we are to live here. We can't imagine living anywhere else. We are even luckier to also be able to work in our beautiful surroundings as we have a workshop on site where we make stained glass. When the opportunity came to purchase the cottage next door in 2014, it seemed the perfect opportunity to enjoy renovating it to the highest standard and then making it available to holiday makers. Living next door means we are able to take care of the cottage and ensure everything is as it should be, giving it a personal touch. In this way we would love to give people the chance to enjoy our beautiful part of the world.

A Wonderful stay in a delightful cottage. Great days at the beaches - Watergate Bay - Constantine bay and Sandy Acres. The Wictory Pub is fantastic. Great welcome by Buffy and her staff. Also Portreath harbour makes for a lovely walk on the way home stopping at the Waterfront Inn for a last drink.  Thank you Mike and Kathleen - helpful, welcoming and unobtrusive.
We really enjoyed our stay at Pixie Cottage, its in a beautiful location close to lots of beaches, some of our favourites are Portreath and St. Ives, we had some delicious meals at Trickys and Morish fish and chips. Week has gone by so fast wish we could stay longer. Will be back soon. Thanks to Mike and Kathleen for making our stay enjoyable.
Great bodyboarding on Tuesday at Porthtowan Beach and good food still at Fox and Hounds, Scorrier. The cottage has been fitted out so well and thanks Kathleen and Mike for showing us your studio and amazing stained glass and for your help and hospitality.
