It is in a lovely out of the way spot down a track which made it very peaceful but easy reach of St Just which has everything you need in way of shops, food etc. Really nicely furnished and lots ofextra little touches like plenty of plates, loo rolls etc. Really appreciated excellent welcome pack which I always thinks sets the tone for a good stay. Perfect spot to do lots of walking without getting car out.

The cottage is incredibly comfortable and nicely decorated. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed to prepare meals. The garden is beautiful with an epic view of the surrounding countryside and coast line. The cottage is within 15- 20 mins walking distance of a couple of pubs and a Costcutters shop. It's an ideal location to explore the West Cornwall coast from (whether you drive or doing long walks). Steve and Victoria, the cottage owners, were very welcoming, kind and helpful with lots of advice for places to see in the area and had maps and leaflets to lend. They also explained how everything works in the cottage. When we arrived they greeted us with a delicious selection of fruit juices and a large fruit bowl as we mentioned we both couldn't drink the lactose in the Cornish cream teas. The cottage still felt very private and quiet and we hardly noticed Steve and Victoria were next door. We would stay here again and highly recommend the cottage to others.
