Cornwall Cottages

The Cornish Coast, in the south-west of England, is popular with artists as well as holidaymakers. In Penzance, you can walk to St. Michael's Mount at low tide or take the ferry at high tide; the view from the top of this Benedictine monastery is superb. St. Ives boasts wonderful beaches, including the golden sand and calm waters at Portminster Beach along with some of the best ice-cream in the UK. Newquay is also known as the surfing capital of the region, with great waves at Fistral Beach and if you’re looking for something a little calmer, then Glaze Beach may be more to your liking.

Devon Holiday Rentals

In Devon, you can enjoy the diverse coastline, from white pebble beaches to golden sand to rugged cliffs, or explore the wild moorlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Beaches range from the surfing beaches of north Devon, such as Saunton and Croyde, to the more sheltered southern resorts of Torbay and Paignton. Visitor activities include golf, fishing, surfing, sailing, sea kayaking, diving and kiteboarding.

Lake District Cottages

In England's pristine Lake District, the northern lakes, including Derwentwater, Ullwater and Buttermere, tend to be less crowded. Activities include hiking, swimming, golf, theatre, lake cruises and mini-bus tours of the area. The town of Keswick is filled with Victorian buildings housing gift shops, tea-rooms and pubs. Daily guided walks are offered from Keswick and plenty of other places in the locality.

The kitchen facilities catered from microwave to master chef depending on your want or desire. The views over the bay and the channel were better than the Internet pictures had indicated. We spent many a relaxing hour sitting in the swivel chairs using the binoculars (supplied) seeing the ships and birds out in the bay. Falmouth town (city) was only 15 mins walk and the station was 5 mins. We had a train ride to Looe an enjoyable day out. On another day we had a ferry boat to St Mawes - the gardens only open Wed & Fri - the castle every day ! The restaurant choices were very good :- burgers, stakes , fish & fish, vegetarian, Caribbean. Thai. You paid your money and made your choice we didn't have a bad one; don't forget to have a corniche ice cream delicious ! Falmouth and the apartment is a place we will return to one day.

The new bed is very comfortable. The views are stunning and better still you can see them from the sofa too. My only word of caution would be to wheelchair users! My husband is one, you do need to be able to manage some walking as the bathrooms are not easy to manage in a wheelchair, although the rest of the apartment and the building are fine and will certainly go back again. A special mention too for Sandra, the cleaner/caretaker, she is lovely, friendly, does a great meet and greet job and couldn't be more helpful.
