Out on the beach every day with lovely walks across the coast and up to St Mawgan village. This cozy flat was ideal for a super chilled out few days spent enjoying the sureoundings and then back to curl up on the sofa to watch the tide roll in and out. Perfect.

We had between 10-12 people staying at any one time including an 18 month old baby. When we first arrived, we were gobsmacked by the house...it had been decorated for Christmas and we were greeted with huge multi-coloured pom poms and fairy lights hanging in the hallway and two Christmas trees in the living/diner. It was a wonderful surprise! The house was huge and our 18 month old had the time of his life running around and making the most of all that space. A cot and highchair were provided which was very helpful. The master bedroom was enormous and the bed so comfortable. The kitchen had everything you would need, although some feedback...some weighing scales would have been helpful. The kitchen pantry had some essential items which were useful and the fridge was definitely spacious enough to fit food for 12 people. The pantry also has a drinks fridge which freed up space in the main fridge freezer. Some more feedback...towels were meant to be included but there were none in the rooms so we had to look in the hallway cupboards. We found some but there were only just enough for us, a couple had to use hand towels as bath/shower towels which wasn't ideal but not a massive problem. We also found that the shared bathroom on the first floor flooded as it didn't have a 'lip' on the tray so during a shower the water went everywhere. Ken was really responsive and quickly fixed a broken lock in the house, excellent service considering it was Christmas eve! I won't hesitate to recommend Avery House to others. This was the first time our whole family had been together in three years - Avery House didn't disappoint in providing us with a truly wonderful place to celebrate Christmas. Thank you Anita & Ken.

As soon as we open the door to the cottage it is like arriving home and we feel instantly relaxed. The cottage is beautifully kept and we love that it is always updated every year. We have now visited three times and look forward to returning again this year.
