Great location and lots to see near by. The accomadation was excellent, can't wait to visit again.

Comfortable and cosy for 5 and a dog, with room to spare. A well equipped house, loads of hot water and somewhere for those wet and muddy boots to dry out. A house where you feel very much at home. The housekeeping was first class and Nicky the owner was very helpful in the preparation for our visit. The house is situated near the South west coastal path and ideal for popping into Tintagel. And the sunsets (when it stopped raining) were spectacular. Thank you
