The high quality and little extras of the cottage always hits the mark. Our little boy loved the very safe courtyard garden (sorry for all the stones under the steps!) and the addition of the slate patio area has made the cottage look even better. We will be back again next year for our annual visit.

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.

Within short walking distance of the Mill House Inn and a little further to the Port William in Trebarwith - both with fantastic food. Nice and close to the coastpath for walks - we walked to Boscastle and Port Isaac from the cottage. Julie and Clive were great hosts, we will be back again soon!
