Wir waren nur zu zweit, aber auch für vier Personen ist reichlich Platz vorhanden. Das Meer ist in Sichtweite. Das Cottage liegt sehr ruhig und bis zum nächsten Ort Tintagel sind es mit dem Auto 8-10 Minuten. In Tintagel gibt es gute Restaurants und Cafe`s, sowie kleinere Supermärkte und einen sehr guten Bäcker. Außerdem natürlich viele kleinere Geschäfte die zum Bummeln einladen. Wir haben dei Ruhe unseres Cottage sehr genossen und können es nur weiterempfehlen.
