Short stroll into the village, and a bus stop right outside for trips into Newlyn and Penzance....you really don't need your car. Everything you could want, and a beautiful view. Enjoyed the sound of the nearby sea lulling us to sleep. Friendly owner, and lots of extra goodies such as cookies and local onion relish! We'll be back in warmer weather so that we can relax on the balcony.

The photo's don't do it justice! I felt really at home there as soon as I saw the old miners lamps on the window ledge as I was a coal miner. Everything you could need is in the property, 3 tv's (which we never even turned on)' Wifi internet access & plenty of power sockets for all your gadgets. A very adequately supplied kitchen with full cooker, microwave & dishwasher and all you need to cook fantastic family meals. The lounge has two comfortable and spacious three-seater sofa's. The property layout has been really well planned, the upstairs has three sets of patio doors that give access to the outside balcony and even on wet days (of which we had more than our fair share) gives great views from Penzance to St Micheals Mount, and of course the railway line (which caused us no bother at all). The bedrooms are well proportioned and we found the beds very comfortable. The owners responded very quickly to help us sort out a couple of minor issues and could not have been more helpful. Staying here certainly lifted our spirits as unfortunately we were down to attend a family funeral :( Would we come here again? Most certainly if the slightest opportunity arises.
