The views were awesome. The place with its garden is great for dogs. There's plenty to do in the area, wonderful walks along the beach and of course up to St Michael's Mount.

A little chilly in places but the wood burner and St. Michael mount make that nothing. Owner very friendly and helpful and over a nice week away. Would strongly recommend to anyone and considering re visiting property again at some point in the future.
