It was immaculate and had everything you could possibly need to relax and enjoy the lovely gardens and patios. It is a truly peaceful location but a short trip in the car will find some great places. We enjoyed Boscastle for some ice creams and Padstow for everything...Rick Stein! The communication with the owners was fantastic, such a friendly helpful couple. We will definitely be booking a stay again. Wonderful...... Thanks for allowing us to share this special cottage for what was a fantastic break away. Mr and Mrs Staples

The location was perfect for us - we got to explore a great part of Cornwall. We really enjoyed our stay and Heather and Les made us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend.
