Lovely cottage on a working farm

5 of 5
We stayed here at Easter with our 3 children aged 9 , 11 and 14 and loved it. The cottage is set on a working farm with sheep and cows and were lucky to have the opportunity to see newborn lambs. Heather and Les are very friendly and welcoming and despite being busy with the running of the farm always had time for our questions and to make sure we had everything we needed. There are 3 large bedroom , the family bathroom is large and modern and the ensuite is a lovely extra with 3 children. The kitchen has everything you could need and the lounge has the most comfortable sofa which was very welcome after long beach days. There are lots of games for the children in the lounge which ket them off their iPads , Heather and Les have thought of everything there was nothing we were missing. We would recommend staying here it was near enough to tourist sites yet set away in the peaceful countryside.

Amazing place to stay.

Fantastic accommodation in a lovely part of Cornwall. Definitely recommend a stay here. The hot tub was very inviting after walks on the moors and days at the beach.
