Lovely location close to all amenities

  • 5 of 5

Characterful cottage in lovely location yet close to all amenities and shops etc. Off street parking a bonus in this crowded part of West Cornwall. No need to bring anything apart from food and clothes as everything else provided. We`ll be back

Well equipped, functional and spacious.

  • 4 of 5

The Cart House interior does not exude old world charm and chic but it is very well equipped, functional and spacious, with two bedrooms plus a child's bedroom, and outside BBQ area with table and chairs. Located in the picturesque old part of Gulval village, close to the A30, supermarkets and Penzance. Double bed could be more comfortable.
