Perfect location & great for kids

4 of 5
The cottage is situated in a lovely, peaceful purpose built area with designated parking, onsite cafe/bar, plunge pool, steam room and mini gym. The area is minutes drive from some lovely beaches, restaurants and Falmouth town centre. The cottage, itself, is not luxurious but well kitted out. There are two double bedrooms and further room with bunk beds. The kitchen has a range of utensils, pots/pans, plenty of crockery and cutlery, washing machine and dishwasher. There is a good size dining table, smart TV, range of DVDs and outdoor seating. There are loads of kids beach toys, which is a definite bonus. We would definitely recommend it as a comfortable base to explore the area.

What a special little hide a way it was perfect for relaxing and the walk round the reservoir was great especially with an excellent cafe at the half way point. The accommodation had everything and more and the location was ideal for touring the Lizard Peninsula am more than happy to recommend
