The location was perfect for us - we got to explore a great part of Cornwall. We really enjoyed our stay and Heather and Les made us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend.

Juliette was very welcoming even organising a high chair for us at the last minute which was great. Generally very clean a part from a couple of details ( some crockery, windows and dust under beds). Very enjoyable stay nevertheless. Easy access to some great walks and beaches.

The views are amazing. You can see the cornwall countryside from one side and the sea from the other. I would say that this is one of the nicest properties we have stayed in for a long time. When we arrived the owners had left us a gift of 2 x scones, clotted cream, butter , 6 x eggs, a loaf of bread and milk. What a lovely gesture this was very much appreciated. This place is immaculate and has everything you can ever need. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay we will definitely book again.
