Ruth was very welcoming from the moment I spoke to her, and she provided our group with everything we needed to feel comfortable during our stay. The boat trip to the secluded house was exciting with guests, 2 dogs and all our provisions on board. The house itself really took me by surprise. From looking at the pictures I knew that the property was going to be nice, but when I saw it in person I couldn't believe how amazing it was. The house is a stunning waterside property when the tide is in and in an idyllic location for woodland walks. Fowey is only 45 minutes walk away Our friends and I really enjoyed being able to stay here and are already planning to stay again.

Waiting in the apartment were fresh flowers and scones! The apartment is extremely well equipped and comfortable. We only used the pool and sauna once but along with the gym they are great to have as an option. We spent lots of time watching the surfers in the bay with and without the use of the telescope. A great week, thank you Caroline 👍

Charlestown is the ideal centre for using it as a base for exploring. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side this year, so we spent more time in the cottage than planned, but it really is a delightful little cottage so that was no great hardship. Clean, Tidy, Well equipped and oh so cosy. Amanda & Dave are very friendly and made us very welcome. We hope to return to this little gem in the very near future.
