Perfect little haven " west wing"

  • 5 of 5

The owners pat and Keith were warm and welcoming on our arrival . West wing was very well equipped, clean and tidy . Plenty of towels etc . Pat had also provided, tea , coffee , and other essentials required for SC . Small back private , quite garden which is great to sit out in after a being out all day .

There is a Ten minute walk down a pebbly uneven track to Porthtowan beach . Various eating places , shops , paid parking by the beach .

Great coastal path walks both west and east . West path to portrieth quite a challenge x3 very steep stepped ravines " not for the faint hearted . West wing is also very convenient for getting to other local areas , such as perranporth ( superb beach ) Falmouth and Truro , National trust property near Falmouth worth a visit .

Pat was the perfect hostess , I would certainly recommend this property .

A real little gem

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little West Wing with absolutely all mod.cons. Perfect location for exploring Cornwall. The view of the full moon over the sea from our bedroom was magical. Pat and Keith have thought of everything and we would not hesitate to recommend this holiday home to anyone. They will even accommodate small children and well behaved pets. A lovely little private garden overlooking fields. Just perfick!

Lovely, cosy and clean place to stay in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely short break with our small baby and enourmous dog!

The annex has everything you will need and a few added extras courtesy of Pat such as tea, milk, sugar etc.

This isn't very common in our experience when renting a holiday cottage and it is an excellent little touch.

Pat was very helpful before arrival in arranging to get a high chair for us and was very unobtrusive during the stay despite living only next door.

Nice little secure garden for the pooch as well.

The annex was very cosy and clean and the location is great with so many beaches near by.

We would definitely return to stay again if Pat would have us (sorry about the dog hair everywhere!)
