Situated within the owners own property with ground floor access and adequate parking within their own gated driveway, and I will definitely be recommended it to others. A welcoming couple with a bottle of prosecco and scones on arrival was a nice touch. Thankyou for a nice couple of days, katrina.

The high quality and little extras of the cottage always hits the mark. Our little boy loved the very safe courtyard garden (sorry for all the stones under the steps!) and the addition of the slate patio area has made the cottage look even better. We will be back again next year for our annual visit.

It was absolutely perfect, the weather wasn't great but it didn't spoil the stay at all! It was immaculate throughout and a real home from home feel about it. Port Isaac was only 10 miles away and definitely worth a visit to Doc Martins territory! Tintagel is lovely too and so were the locals. All in all we great time and we can't wait to return.
