The cottage was beautiful both inside and location if you really want to get away from everything but enjoy a bit luxury too!

Very remote location but that is the attraction together with the rear garden views. Large greenhouse effect living area makes for great open-plan outlook but too hot in summer and no air conditioning to help. Lovely quirky cottage with separate self contained out house. Very enjoyable stay and would recommend to other families.

A large spacious very well equipped house with open plan design. Large decking area and garden, secure enough for our dog & great views of the countryside. Rural location reached by very narrow lanes but close to A30 and A338 with plenty of great places and walks within 45 to 60 mins drive. Would definitely recommend this property.

A lovely house with fantastic views from the garden and living areas. The beds were comfortable and the house was spacious. Very quiet location although a bit of a drive to get to tourist areas. Overall a great time with some fantastic weather for the week.

We were looking for; a large open plan property, in a central location in Cornwall, with great views. This property not only fit all of the criteria above and our family's requirements, it exceeded them. With the A30 and A338 only a few miles away, it was convienient for all of our destinations, including some great pubs/restaurants too.
