The cottage is wonderfully comfortable and relaxing. Lovely furnishings, great beds and everything you need in the kitchen. Loved the garden, which has beautiful views over the fields to the sea. There are lots of walks from the house, useful for our dog ! And it is so well positioned for the beach at Gwithian, and the galleries at St Ives. Couldn't be better. Thank you!
