Lovely cottage!!

5 of 5
We really didn't know what to expect! Having seen the photos online we thought it looked good but in real life the cottage is lovely. It was our base for five nights while we toured around south Cornwall and was so comfortable to come back too after a day exploring - it felt like home!! It has all the amenities you could think of although we used very few of them but a comfortable bed, good shower and a delightful conservatory to chill in before going out for a meal made the stay very enjoyable. Thoroughly recommend this cottage for a very quiet relaxing homely feel!!

Beautiful cosy property, perfect to explore all of Cornwall

5 of 5
An absolutely beautiful property, arrived to fresh roses, a bottle of bubbly and a classic clotted cream tea. Perfect for exploring both North and South coasts! We visited this property as part of our wedding/honeymoon as we got married whilst staying in Cornwall. The hosts where perfect the whole time, they came and took photos for us on the morning of our wedding and made sure the property was clean and all bedding was changed for us coming home. Would definitely stay again! 10/10
