What can i say Hufflepuff was perfect in every way, i wish i could stay there forever. The location was perfect for exploring all the beautiful little hidden gems that Cornwall has to offer and the lodge was a lovely and comfortable home to return to after each eventful day to relax, the bed was more comfortable than my own, slept like a log the whole stay. Thank you to you both for being wonderful hosts and for nothing being too much trouble, and your hospitality was fabulous. I would recommend Hufflepuff to anyone and will certainly visit again, it has everything and more that you could need to make your break as special as it can be, thanks again to you both and hope to see you again soon.

Everything you could wish for is on the doorstep, and the children can roam free. Inviting and cosy, the cottage has a lovely kitchen/lounge area, perfect for families and get togethers, (welcome pack used straight away, thank you) and nice relaxing bedrooms, just what you need for the end of a day body boarding, lounging on the beach, and a wonderful fish dinner, Bliss !!!!
