Lovely cottage and fantastically cosy with the wood burner going. Great bathroom, wifi and other facilities. Beautiful location - both Polruan and Fowey are charming. We look forward to coming back next year! /Nick, Ulrika and Dexter

Really nice cottage and location very comfortable bed and all you need is provided, has a good sized garage for off road parking, Perry was very helpful in telling me where the local doctors were when my wife needed to see one. Looe is a short distance away with plenty of choice of places to eat and a variety of shops. We would love to stay again sometime. Ed and Jan.
