Lovely cottage in a great location for us. Ideal for the dog with walks right on the doorstep. On arrival we found the cottage to be spic and span with fresh flowers, milk, coffee, tea bags and fresh eggs. Very lovely touch. Would definitely rebook.

The cottage is located on a small farm in the Cornish countryside. We were made very welcome by the owners and were delighted to find fresh eggs, flowers and coffee supplies on our arrival. We had a wonderful stay and the location of the cottage is ideal for exploring Cornwall.
