                                                              Fantastic house in a beautiful area!

                                                              Would definitely recommend staying in this stunning house. It is situated in a beautifully idyllic area half way between each coast. There are so many nice walks out from the house which can include fantastic pubs at the end (the tinners or the gurnards head) The house is very spacious, light and beautifully presented and really comes alive when there is a big gathering in it. Had such an amazing time there and would definitely go back to stay again.

                                                              Beautifully located and full of character.

                                                              The property was well appointed, full of character, very spacious and in a superb location with breath-taking views. We had guests that had not previously visited the UK and they were very happy indeed to get a snapshot of Cornish life. Both the owner and the housekeeper were an absolute pleasure to deal with, time permitting we certainly plan to return.

                                                              A wonderful property in a special location.

                                                              This is a special property in a wonderful location. The open plan layout managed to keep us all connected whilst giving us each space. The property is so well presented and so easy to use with a wonderful library of books. The under floor heating is a pleasure as is the stove. At the end of a busy day the bathroom is the most tranquil place to unwind, especially with the lights off and the candles giving a warm glow. The bath is enormous and there is plenty of hot water to do it full justice. The main bedroom is huge as is the very comfortable bed and the views are delightful. This is a great place to stay. We had mixed weather, but the house met all our needs from providing wonderful places to sit out in the sun to warmth and solidity within when a gale blew in from the south. Kelvin and Amanda have thought of everything. We arrived to two bottles of wine, fresh flowers and some local chilli chutney which was so good we sourced and bought three more jars to take home with us. Book this place with absolute confidence, you won't be disappointed.
