Lovely! Lovely lovely!
Thank you for the lovely review. 😀
Pretty, peaceful and perfect!
We spent a fortnight in 'The West Wing' which is the best appointed accommodation we have rented bar none - and we have rented eighteen times! The warm welcome from Pat and Keith was great after a tiring journey and we felt nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. The little touches - a fresh bar of soap, tea bags and coffee awaiting you and little vases of fresh flowers in all spaces makes it very welcoming indeed. With a basket of maps to help you explore and flyers for local attractions as well as a very efficient washing machine, the Lilleys have thought of everything.
We enjoyed its pretty little private garden very much, it was very quiet and relaxing, tucked away from the bustle of nearby Porthtowan. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a comfortable, cosy, peaceful place from which to explore mid Cornwall. (And I know it is not British to talk about price but it is extremely good value for money too.)
The views from a walk a few yards away from the annexe are stunning.
My husband walked to the beach and back but I did not as the walk back is jolly steep.
Nearby St Agnes has a little supermarket and an excellent butchers, as well as a good greengrocers and delicious fish and chips! The Victory Inn serves tasty food and is within walking distance if you both want a drink.
All in all this is a delightful place to enjoy a relaxing and peaceful holiday and I heartily recommend it.
Many many thanks Karen what a lovely review. It was a real pleasure having you here & we would be very happy to see you both again. Thank you also for leaving everything in such good order. Kind regards Pat & Keith

A lot of thought goes into making your stay as comfortable as possible,handy information leaflets were very welcome especially if you’re planning a walk or two. Lovely touch leaving the delicious biscuits for us too,they went down well! Perfect little garden section with a BBQ, garden furniture, shed with a dryer and freezer..it’s all right here and we loved it!
