                                                                                              5 of 5
                                                                                              I stayed for a week with my two daughters and friends from up country with their young daughter. I live in Wadebridge, about an hour away and near the north coast, and the location of Frogmore in a quiet, calm area on the south coast meant that it felt like a real get-away. The north coast tends to be busier, louder and with more going on and definitely a lot more surfing opportunities in the summer, so if that's what you're after maybe look further north. That said it's only an hour away from the north coast. For us this property was exactly what we wanted (despite the fact that myself and eldest daughter are keen surfers - but it's not ALL about surfing). There's plenty to do within an hours drive, lots of tranquil beaches (Seaton Sands and Millendreath were our favorites), Looe has a lot to offer - plenty of good places to eat and crabbing off the sea wall, and Plymouth is only a short drive away if you want to remind yourself why you came on holiday. Be prepared for delays and a bit of give and take driving along the VERY narrow lanes to and from the house especially on change-over Fridays and Saturdays. The weather wasn't always great while we were there and Frogmore's location means it can be a bit windier than the beaches, but the facilities were excellent - two separate TV rooms so we could watch the Olympics while others were indulging in Peppa Pig - spacious, well equipped kitchen - very pleasant bedrooms and enough bathrooms and toilets for all eventualities. The grounds are interesting and excellent for hide and seek, although our frisbee game was a little hindered by mole hills - actually they added to it. When we arrived the WiFi code had not been left for us, but with a call to the owners this was rectified within the hour. Would definitely recommend Frogmore to others and would stay there again Steve

                                                                                              5 of 5
                                                                                              Little Pudding Cottage is the perfect romantic getaway - it has all mod cons (including Smart TV, which I loved!) and a wonderful view of the harbour from the lounge, kitchen and dining terrace. It's just a 2-minute walk down to the shops, restaurants, pubs, harbour and beach - but it takes a bit longer to get back up!!! That's the small price you pay for the lovely view. Clive was very friendly and helpful. We would love to return.
