Lovely apartment

5 of 5
This is a perfect place to stay. The apartment is very well appointed, comfortable and cosy. The cream tea and wine was much appreciated. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. I would definitely recommend.

Great location, spotlessly clean and very comfortable

5 of 5
There is an abundance of lovely things to do within walking distance, beaches, gardens and lovely pub in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It's spotlessly clean, really comfortable and has everything you need. Mark & Jayne responded swiftly and helpfully to our booking and enquiries during our stay. Would definitely return to this breathtakingly beautiful part of Cornwall.
