Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful traditional cottage for Christmas and it was everything we had hoped for. The cottage is cosy and very well equipped and the surroundings were beautiful. Very peaceful and tranquil, yet close enough for visiting the local area and beaches. The owners were very helpful and friendly and we would definitely return. The outdoor hot tub was a real bonus - relaxing under the stars at night - bliss!

Location

From the Owner

When the cottage next door came up for sale in 2005, we had already fallen in love with it and decided we had to buy. It was the original farmhouse with the cow shed attached to one end. The previous owners had converted the cow shed into accommodation so it was perfect for letting as two properties. We long let one of the cottages. The other cottage has the living area and veranda upstairs taking advantage of the spectacular, panoramic views.

Facilities

From the Owner

Watching the stars on a clear evening, listening to the birds with no traffic in the back ground, watching the sun rise on a clear, misty morning, opening the window and saying hello to the horses are just a few of the benefits of staying in our beautiful Cornish cottage.
