This was due to the fact that Myn Tea cottage is so warm and friendly and offers these stunning views on the Sennen bay - you enter the door and feel like coming home. The owner has done everything to make his guests feel comfortable, his individual taste and style makes Myn Tea extraordinary. The surroundings are both wild and beautiful, you can walk in each direction and always find footpaths with great views, especially those at the Coastal Path. It was not the first time and won´t be the last time that we will stay in this cottage !

The design and furnishings are lovely, well thought through and look beautiful while being practical - a triumph of form and function at it's best. Loved the comfortable bed, plethora of electrical sockets and full size fridge. Also the little automatic light in the bathroom very helpful at night. All in all a little home from home, can't wait to stay again. Thanks you Kelvn & Amanda

The booking process was very smooth and gave clear instructions on how to get there and all the facilities. Inside the cabin there were loads of leaflets and information on the surrounding "things to do and see". And the cabin itself is just stunning, outside and in, with modern fittings, all the appliances you might need, an incredibly comfortable bed and some friendly hosts next door. The cabin is secluded and feels very private, yet is very close to lots of beautiful places in Cornwall. Wish we could have stayed here longer !!
