                                          A fabulous house in the best location. Lots of space for everyone.

                                          Peace and tranquility, birds and flowers everywhere yet only a five minute walk to the shops and even less to the beach!

                                          Highly recommended - the best we've stayed in!

                                          Little Carwinnick is slightly off the beaten track, but not by much! The location is quiet but very well-placed for conveniently-accessing the best bits (town and country) of Cornwall. We were met by the owners, who showed us around the cottage/barn and gave helpful information to help ensure an enjoyable stay. The accommodation was clean, bright and well-furnished; modern washing machine, dishwasher and fridge were included. It was a pleasant surprise to find that cleaning materials (and washing-up, dishwasher and washing machine detergent) had been provided by the owners. Crisp bedlinen, loads of hot water, all very pleasant indeed. We enjoyed a week of dry, sunny weather and even managed a few glasses of wine on the patio at sunset. We hope to visit again.
