The kitchen is very well equipped. We were very lucky with the weather and ate our breakfast on the terrace taking in the stunning view. The cottage is very cosy and furnished to a high standard. We hardly used our car because little ferries are available to Flushing and St Mawes to name but a few. We did a lovely walk around the peninsula from Flushing, stopping at Pandora's Inn for lunch on the jetty. We will definitely be back! Many thanks.

Everything in the appartment that you need to enjoy a week by the sea without travelling out if you don't want to. Great location to enjoy the beach/ surfing and lovely coastal walks. Thank you Phil.
