Cosy dog friendly cottage

5 of 5
Very welcoming stay for our weekend away. Had everything we needed and the location was very handy for visiting nearby places such as Port Isaac and Damer Bay. Would definitely stay again and thank you for the delicious chocolate brownies !

Roaring Fires In This Cosy Cottage

5 of 5
We loved the setting of this charming cottage. It has plenty of character and a lot of home comforts. The Welcome Pack and the OD app had a lot of useful information and we had no shortage of ideas in this lovely part of Cornwall. The evenings were cosy with the wonderful log fire and DVDs the owners have provided. Our only criticism would be perhaps be the kitchen. It was a bit on the small side. Despite that, it had everything you need and we had some great meals in. Overall a real find.
