We found Par an excellent point to explore the south and west coast's and very convenient for the Eden Project.

Entrance to jubilee cottage itself very narrow. Q7 had 6 inches ish either side. We knew it was out in the country and like that very much. Having lived in Cornwall before we knew about narrow lanes. Not for the faint hearted if that worries you. Very narrow high sided lanes leading to cottage. Cottage itself is open plan, clean,tidy and well appointed. Other new buildings being built on same site nearing completion by the look of them. Something we were not told. If you are into horse riding (we arn't) it is ldeal, right on the doorstep. All in all a good week. Everything you need is here. Phone signal iffy. Wifi kept fading in and out.
