Outstanding !

5 of 5
Had the most perfect romantic getaway for valentines with my partner. The cottage was secluded and in the middle of no where which seemed to make it all the more cosier. Decor was lovely, very clean and fully equipped. The closest town is padstow there wasn't much there other than the historic port which was very popular. We drove into Newquay which took around 30minutes but was a lovely day out as the weather was lovely for the time of year. Closest supermarket is Tesco which has everything you will need. We didn't go out to eat as we enjoyed cooking in the fully fitted kitchen. Defiantly will be back, may even bring the children as the cottage would also be perfect for a small family.

Fantastic location and luxurious accommodation - it's the small touches that you go home remembering; the home made scones, clotted Cornish cream, jam and prosecco; personalised welcome letter and warm welcome on arrival PLUS the wonderful scenery, beach and places to see! Our visit was short but very sweet! We will most definitely be back! Thank you Katrina and Arthur!
