We were a group of 6 adults, 2 children (6 and 8) and a baby. The accommodation and facilities are excellent and it was great to have indoor and outside dining tables that were big enough to accommodate all of us. The large yard was easily big enough for two cars, a boat and various kayaks and paddle-boards, and the shower in the outbuilding was grRead moreeat for washing down children and adults returning from the beach. Best of all the location is fantastic! Hide

Great location if you want a really quiet chilled out break, great for the dogs a well secured garden no worries of them escaping. The cottage was gorgeous, even put a tree and decorations up which completed our New Year break. The cottage was well equipped, thought of everything even games and puzzles. I cant think of one negative.

Amazing house right next to the sea, just a road in between! We sat & watched the sea for hours, relaxing & mesmerising. The dogs loved the beach & so nice to have it on your doorstep. Great outdoor shower room to clean the dogs off after a long muddy costal walk. Very tastefully decorated with homely touches. Spotlessly clean, there were only 2 ofRead more us but perfect for a larger party, lots of comfy seating & dining areas. Would definitely love to return sometime. Hide

This was an excellent cottage for a family holiday. We were 5 in a cottage for 8 so there was lots of "break out space". Facilities good. Outside shower and loo excellent to get rid of sand and not trail it into the house a after swimming. Best bit, the location.

This is a superb well furbished cottage , with a view and location to die for. We took our small dog, and it was fabulous to step out of the house onto the beach.

This is a beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. Visitors should be aware that during windy weather and not necessarily a storm that the water hitting the wall in front of the house causes the house to shake. This can go on for some time. Certainly an experience, however could be a problem for someone of a nervous disposition. The local pub cloRead moreses early during low season and only serves food on a few nights. Mevagissey is a tough walk away due to the hills and a very tight drive. Hide
