A little piece of Cornish heaven on the coast

5 of 5
We wanted a holiday in quiet surroundings with coastal walks on the doorstep and that is exactly what we got. The accommodation is just perfect and houses all your needs. My favourite room was the conservatory with the most amazing view of the Cornish coast. Sit with either tea and scones or a glass of wine and watch the most stunning sunsets. Nick and Liz are just so friendly and helpful and have created a little piece of heaven in Little Quoit. We will definitely be returning.
