Perfect getaway

5 of 5
Honestly could not have asked for a better little hideaway than The Nest. Sharon was a wonderful, kind, friendly host with the most beautiful array of animals which she very graciously introduced us to! The cottage was PRISTINE! I can’t stress that enough! We could easily have been the first people to ever stay there it was so clean and perfect! And everything that you could possibly need was thought of. The location was perfect with such a short drive to either Trebarwith Strand or Polzeath beaches and a number of little towns that could cater for any need. I cannot recommend Sharon and her dear little cottage highly enough. There is no doubt we’ll be back.
