Guestbook comments from the owner
"Mays Cottage gave us the best of Cornwall. We'll be back!"
"A perfect location, We walked and swam, loved the beach and the views."
From the Owner
“We had lived in Corwall for many years when we eventually bought this house with it's stunning views of the Atlantic ocean and the surrounding countryside. It is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is quiet at any time of the year although there is a lively pub and two cafes beside the sea which is only 300 metres away. We love the leafy lane that leads down from the garden. At the bottom of the hill it forks: one way takes you - in a minute or two - down to a sheltered beach and the South West coastal path the other takes you into East Wood where a footpath follows the stream through oaks,ferns,primroses, bluebells and wood anenomes in the spring; eventually leading to another beach at Strangles or the Coastal Path to Boscastle.”

From the Owner
“We call our holiday-let Mays Cottage. Perched on the side of a hill, Mays Cottage is quiet and relaxing and enjoys splendid views of the Ludon valley and the sea. It is ideal for a holiday at any time of the year: a romantic retreat or a walking holiday along the many beautiful footpaths in the parish, some visitors take the bus to Boscastle or Bude and walk back along the coast path, some surf the Atlantic waves or explore the rock pools and sandy beaches. At the end of the day enjoy watching the sunset from the balcony of Mays Cottage or sit outside the pub and watch the sun sink into the sea. There is a tennis court beside the beach, a choice of five golf courses within twenty miles and Cornwall boasts many beautiful gardens.”
