The cottage was secluded and in the middle of no where which seemed to make it all the more cosier. Decor was lovely, very clean and fully equipped. The closest town is padstow there wasn't much there other than the historic port which was very popular. We drove into Newquay which took around 30minutes but was a lovely day out as the weather was lovely for the time of year. Closest supermarket is Tesco which has everything you will need. We didn't go out to eat as we enjoyed cooking in the fully fitted kitchen. Defiantly will be back, may even bring the children as the cottage would also be perfect for a small family.

Great location and lots to see near by. The accomadation was excellent, can't wait to visit again.

Comfortable and cosy for 5 and a dog, with room to spare. A well equipped house, loads of hot water and somewhere for those wet and muddy boots to dry out. A house where you feel very much at home. The housekeeping was first class and Nicky the owner was very helpful in the preparation for our visit. The house is situated near the South west coastal path and ideal for popping into Tintagel. And the sunsets (when it stopped raining) were spectacular. Thank you
