Good wi-fi . Easy to travel around by public transport as the No 37 stops at the end of the drive and will stop the opposite side too - despite the fact there are no signs for bus stops. Ample parking and good that there are 2 toilets. We stayed 2 weeks and were really sad to leave as it was very homely. Recommend for those that want a quiet holiday as there is no night life or shops . The only downside is that it is not possible to walk around the area as there are no footpaths - need to use a bus or drive to a walking area.

The Cadgwith Cove Inn is a great place to eat and we can especially recommend the Friday evening when you can listen to the fishermen singing (make sure to reserve a table in the bar area). The local shop next door stocks all kinds of groceries - even fresh fruit and vegetables. Together with the Fish Shop in Cadgwith Cove you get everything for a nice meal in walking distance. Yellow Fish Cottage was a nice and cosy place to come home to after a day out and about. It provided everything we needed and really felt like a home away from home.
