Everthing you need and the wifi was a great help when struggling to get a phone signal. Relaxing holiday and what better than to go to sleep and wake up with the sound of the ocean washing over you. Weather was great, warm and dry and with storm Ophelia passing near by on the Monday it gave us the opurtuninty to sit and watch some huge waves crashing into Portreath. Thank you for a great stay. Would recommend it. Alan & Karen
