Very well maintained with plenty of space for 4 adults, a young child and two dogs. I was surprised how close it was to Fistral beach and Newquay town centre by foot. My only small niggle was there was no stair gate on the stairs leading down to the bottom bedrooms etc.....but don't let that be a negative as it is very petty. Thanks again, Ricky & Emma. See you again next year.
