It was perfect, couldn't ask for anything more!

5 of 5
Anthea, the owner, met us on arrival and showed us around the property. She left us a welcome hamper with essentials and extras in which I felt was very thoughtful. The apartment itself was ideal, we had everything we needed and more. The views from the property are stunning whether it's sunny or not. We loved it and would definitely go back again! Thank you Anthea and Ryan for everything 😀

Very comfortable

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay and found the bungalow suited our needs perfectly. Location is great for exploring coast to coast. Neighbours very friendly and made us feel welcome. Very handy local shops and swimming pool at Carn Brea Leisure Centre is recommended - hoist and supportive staff available to those with mobility issues.
