    Super little cottage with everything you need. Looks tiny from the outside, but is surprisingly spacious inside. Stunning garden! we spent most of our evenings sipping wine whilst the kids played on the huge lawn area. Great location, close to lots of nice little beaches and villages. The nearest beach, par sands is half a mile away and can be reached on foot in 10-15 minutes. The village itself has everything you need, a shop, pub, butchers and a fish and chip shop. Would definitely.

    We have visited Cornwall many times but never stayed in this area which is why we chose St Austall as a base .Not the most picturesque but close to the main roads to tour the whole of the area. The cottage is in a residential part of St Austall in a terrace of similar properties.We had difficulty finding it at first as the picture of it online is taken from the rear garden which makes it look as though it has a grassed garden at the front whereas it opens straight onto a narrow pavement.It is very deceptive as the frontage is quite small but inside it has a large kitchen diner and three large bedrooms.the bathroom is modern and very spacious with an impressive shower .In fact the whole cottage has recently been modernised to a high standard .The quality of the soft furnishines ,electrical fixtures and decor is very impressive.If I had to be critical it would be of the small lounge at the front,but the huge kitchen diner was where we spent most of our time.we were told there would be parking for two cars at the front ,but most days we found it difficult to find a space for our one,but the neighbours are very good and we always found a space somewhere in the road. The garden is large and well appointed for bbqs, seating and views over the hills at the back. Its not like having your own detached cottage but was a great place to come back to at the end of the day. There is a great pub with an impressive menu and village store two minutes away. If you left the garden door open you will be visited by a very friendly local cat looking for a drink of water. Would definatly return again.

    May cottage was really homey and had everything you could need. The back garden is looking very and in good weather would be a lovely place to hang out. The pub down the street is great, really friendly people and excellent food.
