    Lovely little cottage. Very small but does have everything you need. No private driveway but we found parking on the road to be fine. Lovely location in that it is nearby an amazing beach, walking distance from the pub and a short drive to restaurants, shops and fish and chips! The only downside to the location we found is that it is on quite a busy road with no pedestrian path when walking (as expected in Cornwall!), and the view is out onto the same road. Had a very lovely stay here

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We were perplexed to receive your comments online when you left a remark in our guest book saying you would like to return one day. The parking for this property is on the road opposite the property, and myself and my neighbours’ park on the road year round. It is a coast road and most people do not consider it dangerous. We did give you the use of our driveway (not always possible due to other guests) for the week you stayed, despite the fact that you apologised to us for the misunderstanding regarding the parking, and showed us that you had made a mistake when booking by reading an out of date brochure.

    Absolutely loved it. Very cosy! But everything exactly right. So relaxing and a great local pub.

    A well laid out compact cottage with everything you need for a couple, spotlessly clean and friendly owners. Would definitely recommend.

    Lovely place. Great spot for accessing all the sights. Only downside was we thought the property had allocated space for one car on a driveway but we had to park on the road opposite Other than that. Fab!
