Yes, the cottage is located away from the coast, but it's precise location meant that the west,south and eastern coastal areas were all about 30 minutes away. The cottage is a real dichotomy: it's basic, but perfect at the same time, cosy and snug comes to mind, but is fitted with everything (and I mean everything), you would require for a 2 week break or longer. The owner - Arran - is incredibly friendly and made us very welcome, cream tea with homemade jam - perfect again! A lot of people have mentioned the steep steps leading down to the front door - I expected a lot worse to be honest, but if you want a flat landscape, go to Lincolnshire - Cornwall is not the place for you! Dog friendly, with lots of dog friendly beaches nearby. Perfect! We would/will happily return.

Arriving in the afternoon, we were warmly welcomed, with a Cornish cream tea and provisions for breakfast, thanks to our hosts' thoughtfulness and the hens they nurture! The cottage was well equipped, we had no need for the 'just in case' supplies we brought with us. As we were combining a short holiday with visits to relatives nearby, we appreciated returning each day to the tranquillity and home comforts of Fern View, especially relaxing on the veranda and the peacefulness of the fern garden. Highly recommended!

There is loads of room for relaxing and winding down after a packed day sightseeing and every facility you would want plus others besides. From the welcome and tour round the house on arrival to last minute setting up to fit our requirements the service provided was excellent. Having supermarkets on your doorstep and local restaurants/pubs to choose from also added to the overall experience. Would definitely recommend to friends and relatives. Mike
