This is our third visit to Hens Nest and hopefully not our last which I think says it all. As soon as we enter the property we feel relaxed and at home. The owners are friendly and helpful as well as their gorgeous dogs. As a certain actor said I will be back

Hen's Nest was absolutely beautiful, we arrived after dark and it was the perfect welcome - sparkling Christmas lights on the fence and inside, a Christmas tree, glowing fire, and even welcome biscuits for us and our dogs. Later on we noticed a box of chocolates and two dog toys under the tree, how lovely. The cottage was very clean, it had everythRead moreing we needed, beautiful sea and countryside views, and horses that came right up to the fence. Location was fab too! Hide

Lovely little cottage in a perfect location for exploring West Cornwall. Very peaceful and quiet, with views out over the fields towards the sea (with friendly horses who enjoy being given carrots!). A lovely base to be able to explore more touristy areas such as St Ives, St Michaels Mount etc and then have somewhere peaceful to come back to. WouldRead more definitely recommend. Hide

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.
