The details of the property were brilliant, as were the owners pre holiday information. The beds are so comfortable and needed after a long day sightseeing. We all loved the fish and chips from the van that visits the village on a Tuesday and the local pub is a must! The teenagers loved the table tennis and my grandson loved the safe and secluded garden. The home is in a great position for reaching local areas, we would definitely recommend the lizard, st michaels mount and of course lands end. I don't have anything at all negative to say about the property, only thanks to the owners for letting us stay 😀 I'm sorry we didn't get chance to mop before we left 😕 thank you, and hopefully we can do another holiday with you again soon.

The setting is idyllic, with open space in which to wander and the added bonus of private access to a secluded beach. Although set on a working farm, its owner David is so easy going and accommodating that you are made not to feel restricted in any way, although of course fully respecting the farm's needs and routines, including those of its very fine livestock. The cottage is comfort itself. I have seen previous reviews that are slightly critical of its condition. Whilst it's true to say the fittings aren't the most modern, it is all in keeping with the pace of life and the surroundings. Everything works, it's supremely comfortable and relaxing - and we'll be going back very soon, because it's just a lovely, friendly place to be

Very cosy inside with small kitchen but good facilities. We loved it and would happily book the cottage again.
