A great base for the Northern Coast of Cornwall

4 of 5
The property is a lovely little lodge, within its own walls which afford privacy from the main house. The kitchen is the best equipped we have found and the welcome pack was very generous, with the cream tea very welcome after our journey! The downstairs accommodation is excellent, well equipped and very comfortable. The only negative comment I would make is that the bedroom ceilings, being built in the eaves, mean that you have to be careful to not bang your head. Bob and Nic were very welcoming and available to answer any questions.

5 of 5
We had a wonderful 4 days at this property. It was extremely clean and tidy. On arrival we were greeted by Laura and her 2 girls who showed us around the property and where everything was. There was a very detailed little notes on where things were and how things worked including local GP's, hospitals public houses and places to eat. They had also left us some homemade bread and jam and done butter and a lovely bottle of local elderflower juice. The cottage is beautifully restored and very cosy. Would definitely return.
