The apartment is beautiful and caters for all your needs. The beach and café are within a short walking distance and well worth a visit. Praa Sands is well positioned and gave easy access to the wonderful sites that Cornwall has to offer. The people are friendly and welcoming. There are lots of good restaurants and I would definitely recommend Rick Steins at Porthleven . The owner, Georgina is lovely and ensures that you have a wonderful experience while staying at Clippers Cove.

We enjoyed many day trips out into the surrounding area as well as spending time relaxing. The lane to approach the property is narrow, but we did still manage to navigate a large car down it. There are dogs and cats and it has a real home from home feel to the place. Linda, the owner is super helpful and welcoming. Trengwainton garden (National Trust) is an easy walk from the property and boasts beautiful gardens and a lovely café for cream teas.
