Perfect little getaway

5 of 5
Beautiful and cosy little cottage, perfect for coastal walks and country pubs. Property was well decorated and looked after, and genuinely nice owners. We hope to return in the near future

Beautiful, luxurious quiet getaway

5 of 5
New Forge was everything I was expecting and more. So comfortable and literally home from home. The kitchen was totally equipped and the log burner kept the place so toasty warm. The location is very quiet and right by some of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall, also great coastal walks down to Lands end and beyond. Was tough to leave! will be returning very soon, thank you for sharing your home.

Fabulous little bungalow, perfect for our first visit to Cornwall

5 of 5
Spotlessly clean, super comfy beds, had everything we needed. Photos don't do it justice really, I was very happy with it! Owners were very accommodating and visited us once to check we were happy. Wifi was in the Manor House on site, it was an ok speed for public wifi. Pool was suitable for a dip! We visited all the local places and beaches and made some great memories! Wonderful stay.
