Contacting the owner was easy and Sarah was extremely helpful in the booking process, the welcome pack was delightful and the cottage was warm, cosy and perfectly situated for walking the beautiful Cornwall countryside and coast. The pub is an easy walk of less than a mile through the village and is friendly and hospitable, serving good pub grub. We rented cycles from the lovely Snails Pace cafe down the road and had a fantastic day cycling the Camel Trail. We felt relaxed the moment we arrived and walked through the door, and we have no hesitation in recommending this lovely cottage.

We hope to return again in the future.
