Where do I start! Joan and Richard are a delight! Very welcoming; provided excellent recommendations of where to eat and what to do and couldn't have been more friendly or helpful while respecting privacy. White Cottage has everything, literally everything: the awesome view - rare to find a place where you can enjoy watching dolphins from the comfort of the sofa!; spotlessly clean; well stocked kitchen with everything you need for self catering; luxury bathroom with a powerful shower; lovely fluffy towels and the bed is so comfy too. And PARKING!! Not many places in Cornwall provide parking on site. Joan & Richard let you leave your car on their drive which is very handy anyway but a must for unloading and loading on arrival/departure. The welcome gift of Cornish biscuits and wine was lovely and very much enjoyed and appreciated. It's a perfect location to explore all of Cornwall. Places that are a must to visit: Lizard Peninsula; Land's End; Kynance Cove; St.Michael's Mount; St.Ives; Porthcurno Beach/Minack Theatre; Padstow & Port Isaac - take the coast road and view the beautiful beaches from New Quay onwards and of course, Mousehole and Newlyn that are within walking distance. Mousehole is a beautiful village. Places to eat in Mousehole: The Old Coastguard - the oysters are delicious; 2 Fore Street - the soufflé starters are just mouthwatering; The Ship - good pub food; Rock Pool - tasty breakfast and we were lucky to have been able to eat outside watching sea life, a perfect location for an eatery. Places to eat in Newlyn: Tunnicliffe's Tolcarne Inn - seared scallops in a squash jus/puree, lovely!!; Lewis's Fish & Chips - delicious. Richard also recommended Fraser's fish & chips on the way to Penzance just by the amusement arcade. It was lovely bumping into Joan & Richard every now and again as it was just nice to chat and they would always provide you with good advice and different things to do/places to see. And Maisie their beautiful dog is lovely too. This was my first time to Cornwall and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay or enjoy our 30th Wedding Anniversary, we're just sorry we didn't stay longer.
