Plenty of space and everything is on one level, so no hazards. The deck is great but the weather prevented sitting out this time. The only real drawback is the busy main road but the view across the river is well worth it. We played a little game counting the passengers on the hourly train from Liskeard - usually no more than six people, occasionally none!
