The cottage is immaculate with everything you could need for your stay, home from home including access to the sanctuary. Tom & Carolyn make sure you are well looked after & nothing is too much trouble. You are near to Newquay, Padstow & the usual hotspots but we chose to enjoy a week learning about the owls & the wonderful work that the sanctuary undertake. It is, for us a piece of heaven.
