Although the property is rather remote, access to it isn't difficult. Just be mindful of the narrow lanes in rural Cornwall and you won't have a problem. The property is rather quirky and cute, but sadly let down by a lack of care from the management company that service it. Our stay would have been much nicer if the cottage had been managed better, with a little more involvement from the owners.

We really loved our stay at peaceful retreat. It looked exactly as it does in the photographs - really lovely - and is perfectly placed for going to the Helford River etc. We would stay again in a heartbeat thank you for having us!
