August 2011 - delightful

This is a wonderfully quaint cottage, full of character and charm that was very clean and tidy throughout. The facilities may be considered limited, however, these do not detract from the holiday experience. It may prove difficult to cook full scale meals on the small cooker, however, we elected never to do so – and with a wealth of lovely and often affordable restaurants within walking distance or just a short drive away this proved to be an excellent decision. That’s not to say you can’t cook of course should you choose to do so.
The beds were comfortable and made for a good night’s sleep each night, and the cottage also offers a view over the sea from the bedroom windows which afforded us a few spectacular sunsets.
If you are used to showering, the bath room facilities may seem a little limiting. There is a shower over the bath but is simply attached to the taps and doesn’t have a riser or fix to the wall. This did not represent any difficulties for us, however, and it was quite a nice way to end a day, relaxing in a bath after exploring some of the local coastal paths or enjoying some time on the areas beaches.
There is plenty to do in the immediate area, the nearest beach we found being a small cove accessed along the coastal path. It does not have any facilities but was clean and quiet, though may be difficult to access for people with limited mobility. Having said that, there are many lovely beaches within a short drive, including Sennen which offers surfing, or the three miles of sandy beach a short drive away at Hayle.
If you are interested in sight seeing the cottage is ideally situated, being only a short drive from Lands End, Cape Cornwall and numerous tourist attractions in the area.
All in all we had a lovely holiday based at the cottage, and the owners had left a convenient store of information on local attractions and restaurants to get you started if you are not sure what to do.
I would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and would also consider returning if we were to holiday in that area again.
