Clair and Gerard are very warm, welcoming and genuinely nice people that will make your stay extremely pleasant. They can also give you valuable tips for activities and are very helpful. The property has everything you need for your stay and really is as charming as the pictures promise. There is a sandy beach very close by foot or car as well as good access to the wide-ranging coastal path. The whole area of The Lizard is stunningly beautiful and all in very close proximity (by car) to the property. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property (and owners!) to anyone looking for a peaceful place from which to explore the western part of Cornwall.

Bottle of wine, scones, jam, cotter cream and a little Easter egg on arrival. Everything was spotless, bed was very comfortable and the sea is right outside your door. Thank you for a wonderful mini break!

Cottage clean and well equipped/presented. Dog room ideal and a great space for our 2 large dogs. Owner relaxed, welcoming and friendly with expert local knowledge. We had a wonderful holiday over the Easter period (04/2017) and will be booking again. We don't have anything negative to say...
