About Alison Battles

Hello – we are Ali and Kieran Battles. We live in Bristol with twins, Eleanor and Isaac.

It has always been our dream to own a holiday home in Cornwall and we are finally doing it! We hope you enjoy staying here as much as we fell in love with No.8 the first time we visited. We want you to feel at home and make the most of your holiday – if there’s anything you think we could do better or something you think would help make your holiday even more enjoyable then please let us know.

Alison Battles purchased this house in 2011
