We were travelling with our two older childs and had many space in this cosy cottage. David an Victoria were very helpful and kind. We realy recommend this place.

We had walks along the coast path With fantastic views, spectacular sunsets at Cape Cornwall, a swim in Priest's Cove, and good meals in St.Just. And Sunset Cottage had everything we needed. It was a charming cottage, well equipped, and Esther and Tony were lovely hosts. The second bedroom was a bit small, but otherwise everything was fine. We had walking distance into St Just, and we met friendly locals everywhere. We take a lot of good memories With us back to Norway. Per Willy W and family
