What can we say......you walk into this beautiful cottage and it's like home. 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

Very cosy, homely and clean cottage

5 of 5
The cottage had a lovely feel and offered a great amount of space. 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.

Fantastic property didn't want to leave

5 of 5
This place is amazing. A lovely barn conversion done to a very high standard. The views are amazing. You can see the cornwall countryside from one side and the sea from the other. I would say that this is one of the nicest properties we have stayed in for a long time. When we arrived the owners had left us a gift of 2 x scones, clotted cream, butter , 6 x eggs, a loaf of bread and milk. What a lovely gesture this was very much appreciated. This place is immaculate and has everything you can ever need. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay we will definitely book again.
