Easy off road parking right by the door and Wifi worked really well too. Would recommend. Brilliant location near to some stunning coastline.

We would be very happy to return in the not to distant future. Many Thanks, Phil, Sue and Lucy the dog.

We were not disappointed, delightful property, ideally placed, with an engaging owner. Jane recommended the best Sunday roast in Hayle and cannot argue with her, also once we got used to the bolt holes to the Beach over the Dunes and we really did have the perfect family holiday and hopefully will be back in 2017. It really is a Haven of peace for families and dogs and is a home from home - many thanks Jane and hopefully we can share a glass of wine in the Cornish Arms next year!
