    We really enjoyed our stay it's our second time we've stopped here. Would definitely recommend it.

    We will definitely book Basil Cottage again. A few little housekeeping jobs needed - the fridge needs securing in its housing, the kitchen sink tap needs fixing as does the bathroom door handle. The microwave needs replacing or the dials need somehow to be marked so people can figure out how to use it. The shower head is also starting to come loose/break away. The king size bed is very comfy and the bedroom is a good size with plenty storage. The shower is nice and powerful and it was great to be able to sink into a bubble bath after a long (and rather wet) walk. If I were being picky I would suggest the sofas are looking a bit tired. Would definitely benefit from new cushions. Overall we love Basil Cottage and its' location is perfect for us. Crantock beach is a 10 minute stroll away and there are pubs and a well stocked shop within walking distance.
