Beautiful cottage with everything that would you could possibly need included. The log burner was a luxury. The cottage was spotless. It certainly had the wow factor. The bedrooms both had wonderful views and seeing the Alpacas from the window in the morning was a treat our daughters loved. The little finishing touches added to the feel good factorRead more such as the toiletries basket in the bathroom, two bathrobes in the master bedroom, cream tea on arrival, fresh flowers. Would love to go back Hide

Lovely cottage... very high spec... made to feel at home ...lovely hosts. The cottage is very central for sightseeing but there isnt a pub within walking distance due to the very narrow country lanes... it is Cornwall after all though! and we would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage

Reviewed by Neville 9th June 2019

Beautiful cosy barn, it was much bigger than we expected. The owner was extremely welcoming and very helpful. If all self catering accommodation was as good as this we would do it more often.

Reviewed by B 18th March 2019

We have stayed at the cottage many years ago when our family were young and had a lovely time, our return to the cottage did not disappoint a beautiful place to stay. We had a delightful stay, with lots of places to visit nearby. Mr and Mrs Chapman make you feel very welcome with cake, tea and coffee waiting for you.

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.
