Picturesque Cadgwith Cove's friendly pub is just a mile down the (steep!) hill from the quiet little village of Ruan Minor – where semi-detached Bona-Vista lies within an easy stroll of the local shop and only two miles from the family-friendly beach at Kennack Sands. From the gravelled parking-area in front of this modern, light-filled house there is a ramp to the entrance porch, and inside are wide doorways and a downstairs bedroom and shower-room, ideal for those with restricted mobility. Upstairs are the double bedroom, bathroom and children's room, which includes a single bed and bunk-beds for versatility (the property accommodates six guests only); beyond it, a small galleried play-area overlooks the dining-area below.
The well-equipped kitchen is next to the spacious sitting/dining-room with the table overlooking the garden and a glazed door opening out to the sunny south-facing patio. At the rear of the enclosed level garden a gate leads to the games-room which is equipped with a pool table, perfect for some friendly rivalry. Spacious and convenient, Bona-Vista has a warm welcome for dogs and is perfect for couples or families of all ages, making it an ideal base in any season for exploring this very special part of Cornwall. The lower rent band applies for parties of two with guests having access to all ground floor rooms and the upstairs bathroom in addition to the ground floor shower-room, so there is no need to share.

The Todden divides the cove in two...
