The cottage was cosy, comfortable, spotless and well equipped. It's on a quiet lane in a small village so it was also very peaceful but within a short (very steep hill) walk of two nice pubs, and Tintagel is also easy walking distance. The coast path is a short walk away, and there are lots of other nice walks (coast and moors) within a short drive. Julie was very welcoming and went out of her way to make sure we had all we needed and remained well stocked with wood for the fire box. The carrot cake she baked to welcome us was delicious :o) In short, a really lovely stay and we'd definitely return!

                                                                                                      4 of 5

Everything we needed seemed to be there and every one in our group with ages ranging from 3 to 73 agreed it was a thoroughly splendid house. The only minor reservation was the oily smell that pervaded the house (from the central heating?) - this affected one of our party in particular, but did not overall detract from our enjoyment of the property and locale.
