The garden just springing to life with snowdrops, daffodils and birdsong. Such a tonic to city life. Loved the cottage - comfortable, cosy with open fires and well equipped. It is just off the beaten track but so easy to get to places - Polperro, Looe, Fowey etc. with gorgeous beaches and coastal walks minutes away.

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