When we arrived at the house the children were very excited to discover all the pirate toys and that they had been left a gift each. We also received a lovely welcome pack of sparkling wine and goodies.The house is lovely and has everything you could possibly need for a home away from home. The children loved the pirate themed bedroom and enjoyed spending time in the outside 'smugglers den' play house.There is a local beach which is apx 10-15 min walk through the fields, although we choose to drive to Polzeath most days (20-30 min drive). Tintagel is very close and handy for take away fish and chips! I would definitely recommend staying here, especially if you have children under 10.
