The owners were extremely welcoming and accommodating. We found a lovely spot to enjoy a fish and chip supper overlooking the estuary at Sunny Corner, Malpas whilst Port Issac, Padstow, Falmouth and Charlestown were also within easy reach. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending a stay at this lovely and very clean apartment and are already looking forward to returning. A huge thank you to Frances and Paul for making our short stay so comfortable.

The cottage was Cosy and welcoming and very well equipt. There was nothing that they hadn't thought about and all the equipment was of a high standard. The garden was gorgeous and secure for the dogs with lovely views and very peaceful. Someone phoned to ask if we were enjoying our stay which was a very nice touch. As was the welcome hamper with tea, biscuits, milk and flowers. We felt truly at home there and the location was ideal for exploring the many gardens and beaches Cornwall has to offer. The information file in the cottage was very useful, outlining all the dog friendly beaches and activities nearby. We had an amazing memorable holiday and can't wait to go again.
