So much to see in the surrounding area, a really good place to spend a relaxing and enjoyable two weeks.

I would definately recommend the Blue Door to friends, and would return myself. The bus service was great, didn't use the car all week, able to go to St Michaels Mount, St Ives, Penzance, Minack Theatre. Also a good coastal walk
