Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed walking the Cornish Coastal paths down to Polly Joke & Holywell Bay stopping for pub lunch on the way and exploring the amazing coast path in the other direction to Fistral Beach up to Watergate Bay - Jamie Oliver's 15 restaurant is a great lunch stop! We loved it here - fond memories.

Good base, comfortable and well planned house

  • 4 of 5

We were a bit of a random group of 8 from 3 families and this accommodation suited us as there was enough room to spread and be together or separate as we wanted. Was close enough to beach and shop to not need car. Surf school was excellent at crantock and we had a good holiday. Owners were good at sorting out a few minor niggles and would be happy to recommend to others.
