Excellant facilities and clean modern appearance of property. Very useful to have own parking space

5 of 5
No issues for the facilites, except needing the manual to use the cooker and m.wave! (but we re not technical bods- so personal issue there). Used the oven but didn't use the microwave. Nice to have adequate pans to cook with as we do nt eat out often when on holiday. Ideal for two or two and a baby toddler. Nice to be in the village community. Bathroom lovely en-suite to bedroom.

Wonderful place. Recommended!

5 of 5
Great place above Fistral beach! Location much better than expected. We (7 people between 5 and 90 years, mixed German and Brazilean) enjoyed the place and the beach, including the wonderful sunsets. Parking was OK for a van, we used the place to relax and also do excursions in Cornwall (up to Land's End).
