Wonderful cottage and perfect base for a holiday in Cornwall. Cottage had everything you could need with plenty of living space and car parking which is always a bonus. Lovely walks to be found around the village and the food at the Fisherman’s Arms is definitely recommended. We had a perfect holiday in a comfortable and cosy cottage in a tranquil setting....

Pleasant property, well equipped.

Fantastic little cottage in a great location, very quaint with great character, having a washing machine and dryer was an added bonus. Local pub which serves great food less than 2 minutes walk. Once you are out on the main roads getting anywhere within Cornwall is easy. Would definitely recommend and would return if visiting Cornwall again...

Nice cottage but spoilt by needing a THOROUGH clean. Dust, cobwebs and even rubbish under beds.

We're really sorry that the property didn't meet your expectations on this occasion. The property has subsequently had a deep clean to return it to the previous high standards. Donna, Customer Support

The website and photos are a true and accurate depiction of the facilities and location. The warnings about access via single track roads with paasing places are appropriate. Parking would be for two family cars max , one blocking the other in . Is the garage part of the sheiling or is it linked to the next door reading room...
