We felt it had everything we needed to self cater and was very handy for the local pub opposite and walking into Hayle. We had some wonderful day trips to the Minack theatre, St Michaels Mount and Pendenis Castle. The local beach just 15 minutes walk away was also stunning! The owner Julie was really helpful and communiucation excellent. We will definitely be returning, thank you!

The cottage is set out the way from huddle and bustle with only the sound of the adjacent stream! The cottage itself has everything you'd ever need and is extremely cosy with lovely comfy beds! Your with 15 mins of the next local towns only 5 mins from an Asda next boots and McDonald's! Couldn't wish for a better getaway! Will visit again xx
