I look after the bookings for this property for my mother, Jean. She lives in the other half of the house and thoroughly enjoys welcoming visitors to the apartment. She is retired and so is able to take an active interest in all her guests if they so wish. I live just under a mile away in the village of Ludgvan so one of us is usually on hand if you need anything.
Catherine purchased this Apartment in 1987
Why Catherine chose Ludgvan
I really like this apartment because I lived there for many years myself. I moved to Cornwall with my parents in the early 1980s when they purchased this property and I lived there with them for several years. When I moved out, the space I was living in was easily converted to an apartment within their house. There is an adjoining door to the main house but this is kept locked when the apartment is rented and has bolts on both sides of the doors to ensure privacy and security for all guests. There is a lovely garden which can be enjoyed by visitors with a large lawn leading down to small orchard. On a nice sunny day, sit on the wall by the fish pond and wait for the goldfish to pop up and say hello. While sitting there - if you're lucky - look upwards and see the buzzards circling overhead. It is, as described on the side of the A30. Our guests have said in the past that they don't notice the traffic when they are inside, but obviously it can be heard in the outdoor areas.

Comfortable and well equipped
We stayed here at Christmas and found it even better than the description. This apartment is well designed and central for exploring the area. We expected the minor problem of traffic noise which is reflected in the price. Our thanks to the helpful owners.
Lovely well equipped place. Everything you needed to have for a lovely stay.
owner was very friendly and helpful.
Property was lovely. Clean and well maintained. Very comfortable too. Cream tea with scones and cream on arrival were superb. How do we get our deposit back. Owner says you have it so if you could let us have it back now, that would be great.
A great apartment for touring the area but too near the main road.
A very well equipped apartment for two. Every thing you need for self catering(except a hairdryer). Extremely roomy. Made to feel welcome and enjoyed the cream tea provided on arrival. Plenty of places to visit by car and within walking distance of St. Michael's Mount and Longrock beach.
Had to clean the central drainer of the sink but otherwise a great place to base yourself for all things Cornish!
Me and my wife were totally impressed
We was positively surprised upon arrival and saw the property from the outset and the surprise extended further when we open the door and get inside as even though the discriptiion is fairly good, for some reason I had a different idea. Meeting the owner to collect the key let us quickly realise that we were in for a treat as she is one of the loveliest people you'll ever meet and that soft spoken voice with a wealth of local knowledge immediately tells us we have made the right choice.
It's a pity the property isn't suitable for family as we would certainly return as such but nonetheless if we ever return to Cornwall as a couple there is no place else we would rather stay
A little gem
This property can only be described as a perfect little gem. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable whilst providing deceptively spacious accommodation. The owner was wonderfully kind although never intrusive. Her welcoming cream tea was a lovely touch on our arrival. The bed linens and towels were immaculately fresh and clean.
We look forward to returning to this property in the future and have no hesitation in recommending this lovely home from home.
