We had a great time, cottage was clean, warm, dry and cosy. Shower lovely although low to get under if you are tall. Bring bath towels and maybe some bigger saucepans, and don't look under the sink. The owner listed wifi when we booked (we were looking for somewhere with wifi) but this changed before we arrived and we found wifi had never in fact been there. Thanks for a good week away!

Sadly we were really disappointed with this accommodation. It could be lovely but needs a bit of thought. Eg only 2 breakfast bowls for a house that sleeps 4, a tiny frying pan which was useless for cooking for more than 1 person at a time, kitchen cupboards really smell horrible because of the damp and the kitchen drawers were tricky to open at all due to the damp too. Beds were comfy but not made up properly, the duvet covers were left undone which is puzzling to me. No WiFi which these days is a bit of a must have. There was a hygiene concern regarding one of the beds that we spoke to the owner about at the time. Sofa needs replacing as it's quite uncomfy. It's in a great location, walking distance from Tintagel, which we loved. It could be so lovely with some thought put into it. Such a shame.
