Well appointed, good central location, nicely furnished, great space for the dogs in the courtyard with access from downstairs bathroom. Great that we could access the spots just yards from the cottage vis boat at high tide. Although there is no onsite parking, the car park is yards away. We then found on street parking for the week too. Everything in walking distance. Excellent communication with the owners too. Thanks

It is dog friendly and our dogs certainly enjoyed the beaches and lovely National Trust estates such as Tresillick. The cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.
