Lovely cottage!!

5 of 5
We really didn't know what to expect! Having seen the photos online we thought it looked good but in real life the cottage is lovely. It was our base for five nights while we toured around south Cornwall and was so comfortable to come back too after a day exploring - it felt like home!! It has all the amenities you could think of although we used very few of them but a comfortable bed, good shower and a delightful conservatory to chill in before going out for a meal made the stay very enjoyable. Thoroughly recommend this cottage for a very quiet relaxing homely feel!!

Fantastic Holiday Cottage

5 of 5
I would like to thank Jane for a fantastic holiday experience. The cottage has been furnished to an exceptional level in every room, which made our stay so cosy and comfortable. The views from the cottage are wonderful, changing with the tides. I cannot wait to visit again, perhaps in the summer so I can take advantage of the terrace overlooking the creek.
