April Cottage is a real gem of a find and perfect for our annual family get together. The house is very well appointed, with plenty of space (indoors and out). Its advertised as a 3 bed property, however, there is actually a 4th box room which was perfect for our 2yr old. All the bedrooms are furnished with luxury duvets and bedding and the living area and kitchen is great for entertaining / cooking / relaxing. Its an excellent base to explore the many beaches, coves and villages that SW Cornwall has to offer. Kynance, Cadgwith Cove (and the Cadgwith Inn), The Minnack Theatre and nearby Mousehole are definitely worth a visit. The Shipwrights pub in the village does a good curry night on a Tues and the Ship Inn at Mawgan is also a must for food - or if you prefer a quiet night in, then stock up on lovely fresh fish from Newlyn market (if that's your thing!). A big thanks to Tutte for her helpfulness throughout the booking process. We had a memorable holiday in your lovely home and we will definitely be returning (hopefully next year).
