We are now accepting previously booked visitors from 4th July, in line with the new regulations. We are not able to accept confirmed bookings for Ding Dong Cottages while the Coronavirus pandemic continues but will accept advance reservations for when restrictions are relaxed or changed, on a future booking request basis, not requiring a deposit until circumstances eventually become clearer. Please contact us at any time if you have queries.

Bal Cottage, The Loft and The Cabin, set on the wild romantic moors of West Penwith in Cornwall, offer unique self-catering accommodation, from which to enjoy magnificent panoramic landscapes and seascapes, across the moors or over Mount's Bay to the distant Lizard Peninsula; discover ancient sites; relish our close access to miles of remote moorland and coastal walks, explore the wealth of glorious Cornish gardens; visit some Poldark filming locations; or just relax.

Where we are and what we offer
Set amongst seven acres of meadow, our two cosy, friendly cottages and a cabin lie four miles north of Penzance and only nine miles from St Ives, high on a hill overlooking Mount's Bay, St Michael's Mount and the Lizard Peninsula.
The Cottages are within easy walking distance of many ancient sites, which include the iron-age village of Chycauster, The Nine Maidens, Lanyon Quoit, the Mên-an-Tol and Chûn Castle, surrounded on three sides by the Penwith Moors, which stretch all the way from Land’s End to St Ives; rediscover the natural world.

Seeking somewhere a little different?

There is nowhere quite like Ding Dong; it is unique in the true sense of the word! Bal Cottage, The Loft and The Cabin provide perfect bases for walking, wildlife observation, bird-watching, photography, astronomy or other outdoor activities, as well as being a secluded retreat for artists, authors or other creators, far from the bustle and stress of modern life.
Not excessively modernised, the cottages are comfortable, well equipped and restful, there is no passing traffic and you may walk without limit in any direction.
Guests have occasionally walked to St Ives and back, returning tired but triumphant! And on a clear night the sky is spectacular, revealing the stars and planets without the light pollution which obscures the seeing in town and city skies.

For those requiring internet access we now have a fast connection via recently installed Fibre to the Premises.
