Beautiful cosy home

  • 5 of 5

The annex was just a perfect little place for stay cosy and clean, couldn't have asked for more. Pat has ensured that there is everything available for the stay including milk, tea and biscuits, even a small treat for the dog on arrival. Beautiful little private garden to sit out with the dog. Very close to the beach and not far from good eateries. I will highly recommend this stay to anyone thinking of visiting cornwall around porthowan area. All in all it was a perfect holiday week for us at Cornwall!

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 .
