Exactly as described with a wonderful sea view from the Bedroom window. The property was clean and and well equipped, the Aga was a real bonus. I would recommend this cottage if you like coastal walks and quiet unspoilt countryside. There is a local shop and pub within walking distance. The Meadhouse was a real treat, and very reasonable. Looking forward to going back next year in the summer.

It is in a great location; close to St Just and the wonderful mining coast. It also not far to the beaches of Sennen and Porthcurno. We had a fantastic week and the cottage was perfect for us. The children loved playing in the beautiful garden and generally loved the place. We also had a dog with us and he was very much at home. There are great walks on the doorstep. The efficient wood-burning stove was a real treat and made for cosy evenings.The house is well equipped and Ali was so very welcoming and helpful. All in all, an outstanding place to which we hope to return. Thanks so much.
