The cabin was warm and clean and had everything you could need for any length of stay. Even when it was freezing and pouring with rain at night outside we were lovely and toasty inside. Great location,able to go on some really scenic walks without the need to drive and easily within walking distance of St Just for a good pun lunch. We'd definitely like to come back for longer in the future.

The kitchen was totally equipped and the log burner kept the place so toasty warm. The location is very quiet and right by some of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall, also great coastal walks down to Lands end and beyond. Was tough to leave! will be returning very soon, thank you for sharing your home.

The garden also looks great but as we were there in February we didn't really get the chance to fully appreciate it. We loved Gwenver and Sennen beaches, though the climb back up from Gwenever gets the heart going.
