It sits in its own garden and is overlooked by nobody with views to The Atlantic and cliff tops in the distance. The Hideaway was warm with an efficient heating system and fully equipped kitchen. We will happily revisit, and recommend The Hideaway to anyone who wants a good base to explore Cornwall. The owners description of the property is very accurate. Great value too
