Why Carole Sudlow chose Cornwall

We have owned these cottages for nearly 10 years and we still marvel at the super sea view every time we visit. It is what convinced us to purchase in the first place.

Lovely quiet spot with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was in a lovely area and we enjoyed waking up to the fantastic water views. It was an easy drive to many of the wonderful Cornish villages and tourist spots.

The cottage was spacious and comfortable with all the necessary mod cons.
