There are a host of National Trust properties in this beautiful area and miles of winding country lanes to explore, all little more than a single car’s width. The highlight of the area is St Michael’s Mount, a historic stately home/castle built on a rock in Marazion Bay. Land’s End is also just a short drive from your holiday home in Whitecross, with its landmark signpost.

The friendly owners made us feel very welcome and left us a lovely hamper and essentials which we really appreciated after a long drive. The accommodation is beautifully furnished and very cosy and comfortable....we thought the location was ideal for visiting most parts of Cornwall with lots of places within easy reach. We really enjoyed our holiday and can highly recommend a stay here..we would not hestitate to return to the dairy on future visits to Cornwall.
