Charming, Warm, and Inviting; A truly lovely and memorable experience
My family and I have just returned from our visit to Truro and I am already excited to plan a trip back for the future. From the moment we arrived at the cottage, I was incredibly surprised with all of the "extras" available to us at our home away from home. When an incredible rain storm came in our first afternoon, we passed the time by the roaring fire playing trivia games and completing the jigsaw puzzles found in the closets upstairs. With the sun shining the rest of the week, we quickly developed a morning routine of drinking coffee on the beach, and with the oversized coffee mugs from the cabinets, we walked forever before coming back for refills.
During the days, we pried ourselves away from our haven to take in all the sites. Eccentric people and unique shops kept us entertained in town for hours, and despite the sunburn and sore muscles (from carrying all of our purchases!) we returned more than once in an effort to see it all.
In the evenings, we walked to the local markets to pick up a fresh catch or grabbed some meat and veggies for dinner on the grill. After a quick game of football on the beach, we sat out on the deck to watch the sun set while we ate dinner. The cottage had everything we needed and so many extras. Plastic dinnerware and trays, along with skewers, made eating Shish Babob on the grill a cinch, and left more time for games and happy hours. The large dinner tables allowed every meal to be a family meal; it felt like a holiday dinner everyday.
I cannot say enough about what a wonderful experience our trip was. The owners, Ross and Mike, provided so much information ahead of time, and the books, journals, and brochures that were in the house gave us ample opportunities to discover new places and try new things. Extra quilts in the closet allowed us get nice and cozy by the fire on the cooler nights, and the plethora of windows throughout the house gave us an incredible breeze during the day. All of the pots, pans, serving dishes, and cookery made cooking so easy (much easier than at my own house!) that we only went out for one meal during our 5 day stay.
We will definitely be back! This place is perfect for a family trip, but also for trips away with a group of friends. Looking forward to our next opportunity to get away to this paradise by the sea!
