Warm welcoming owners, keen to put anything right if a problem (there was not) so don’t wait until you get home and then complain! They are in farmhouse just opposite. Long narrow drive up to cottages, but we only met another car once! Loved being able to walk about 15 minutes to get on to the coastal path, and down into Lamorna. The beauty of the place is that lanes are dark and unlit at night, you have that ‘away from it all’ feeling! Well equipped and cosy during a cold wet June week.

Top shelter - top holiday. Me and my husband stayed here (23/09/2017 - 30/09/2017) having previously stayed in Munnings Studio in 2014, The Top Shelter is again first class accommodation. Comfortable, tastefully decorated, cream tea on arrival. Ideal for a relaxing getaway. Really nice owners too.

It says the pub is just down the lane.OK it is but at night there are no street lights it is muddy and wet and a very step hill which is no good for anyone who is not as fit as a mounting goat not for the faint hearted. There is no mobile phone signal .I just which companys is classic voyages would get details a bit better.

Thanks for your review of The Top Shelter - as you found, the property is rurally located and this will mean that the skies are beautifully lit with stars rather than street lights and there are no pavements etc. Although the pub is just a mile away, it is a dark walk back along the country lanes (unless there is a full moon and cloudless sky!) so you would want to bring a torch or designate a driver. We do have a variety of properties in town locations, so please do ask our Booking Office team if these are of interest. Tanya, Customer Support
