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!

All the rooms are beautifully decorated and are well equipped with everything needed to enjoy time away from home.The location of the cottage is excellent with lots of lovely places to visit in the area. We hope to return again in the future.

It sits in its own garden and is overlooked by nobody with views to The Atlantic and cliff tops in the distance. The Hideaway was warm with an efficient heating system and fully equipped kitchen. We will happily revisit, and recommend The Hideaway to anyone who wants a good base to explore Cornwall. The owners description of the property is very accurate. Great value too
