The cottage is like home from home. It has all the equipment and makes the stay for a week very easy. We had 2 children with us and they loved it. We visited Padstow, Newquay zoo, the local leisure centre, several beaches and a few of the local restaurants. It is the perfect getaway. Julie made us feel so welcome and we even stayed an extra night as we enjoyed staying there so much. We will definitely be returning. The bedrooms are of a good size and well furnished. The 2 ensuites also make it ideal for 2 couples visiting. Thanks for a wonderful stay and we will be returning soon.
