It is well equipped - the kitchen has everything you need - the washing machine was a welcome addition to. Plenty of storage space, lots of games to keep children entertained. The extra treats when we arrived were very thoughtful (milk, Juice, scones, clotted cream, jams, hot chocolate, coffee and tea). Outside there is a BBQ for guests to use and a selection of wetsuits, body boards, buckets, spades etc for guests to use. Overall the summerhouse was home from home and we all enjoyed our stay there!

A lovely touch on our arrival was the delicious fudge and cookies left out for us, well received after our journey. The owner has equipped the cottage with everything you can possibly need and the tennis court was a nice area to have very close by. The cottage was immaculate on our arrival and is so peaceful. Sadly we didn't have great weather and were unable to take advantage of the BBQ or to spend time sitting out on the patio listening to the small river that runs at the back of the cottage. The fish and chip shop in Camelford (Peck'ish) was fantastic and some of the best fish i have ever had. Also a few miles away is the Rebel cinema, great for any not so great weather days. It's a great little cinema with an amazing sound system and very good value. Thanks to Stuart, the Inny Glade owner for everything and for making the visit both easy and enjoyable. We will certainly be back
