It was very clean and comfortable. Lovely jacuzzi with great views. A short walk away from the local pub. A good stock of kitchen equipment very clean. A gas bbq for usage and sunbeds. Plenty of towels to use. The steps are fairly steep but probably only a problem because of my fractured hand. Bed was comfy and the tv with extra channels such as NeRead moretflix was handy. Lovely owners very friendly. Hide

An amazing central location for touring the area both North and South Coast. The cottage is situated on a working dairy farm where peace and quiet reign. Clean and comfortable describes the cottage to a tee and the owners Joe and Brian could not be more helpful. Good pet friendly pub 10 minutes walk away.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
