The loft is decorated and equipped to an excellent standard, with absolutely everything you need! The bed is super comfy, the bathroom and shower just perfect! The kitchen is big and well equipped, very modern, it’s lovely. The lounge upstairs is very comfortable and has lovely countryside views. Due to the time of year, the area was very quiet. We had a lovely walk over to Burgh Island, visited Salcombe, Dartmouth and Plymouth, it is in a picturesque area, we loved it. Louise and Chris have got this just right, they were very welcoming, they gave us a real treat with a very generous hamper, thank you for the cream tea, and the wine! We had a perfect week.

Comfy beds and sofas, wonderful shower, great log burner. We took a walk around the estuary and had lunch in the pub by the ferry crossing to Fowey, before catching the ferry across and another back to Polruan. We were lucky with the weather (for November) and I only wish we could have stayed for longer.
