It is beautifully presented and everything is of a high quality inside. The owners are there if you need them but do not intrude, you feel welcome to share the lovely site. It is rather remote and access is via a long farm lane but that added to the charm for us. Despite its seclusion It was very easy to get to north and south towns and beaches. A perfect self-catering getaway with the feel of a boutique hotel, we would love to come again. Highly recommended.

The pics don't do it justice, it is stylish, spacious, comfortable and clean with breathtaking views over the sea. It makes a great base to explore Cornwall, but Perranporth has a charm all of its own as well (and if you have a dog, its a veritable paradise... you won't find a more dog friendly place on the planet!) Caroline was a great host, and there were some supplies already on site as well as some very welcome scones/cream... thanks Caroline, just what we needed after a long drive! We have only two criticisms of our holiday week.... firstly the week was too short, we could have stayed forever.... and the drive back to the midlands on a bank holiday weekend was a nightmare :-) Top marks to this apartment though.... we can't recommend it enough.
