It is very well situated to visit many attractive areas of Cornwall including the all important 'doggy beaches'. The patio area and little lawn were ample for our lively collie - she didn't escape as we feared. The local pub a very short walk away served us an excellent lunch.

Great spot for walking and exploring the coast. Would highly recommend walking to Newlyn for breakfast at Dukes Cafe and picking up some pasties and saffron buns from the bakery for the return journey. Had a fantastic dinner at 2 Fore Street and did some great shopping at Coast. Thank you for a great week.
