Comfortable and clean. Well equipped kitchen. Great location for walks or day trips out.

Lovely large period cottage with a wonderful history within a fantastic location. Plenty of room for the two of us and our dogs. We only stayed for a short break and couldn't enjoy everything laid on - we didn't have time to watch the DVDs or play the games on offer, but we were very comfortable, and the shower was amazing.

We loved Old Borough House. There were six of us so lots of room but even with eight this would have been true. It's very well equipped. Dedicated off road parking was good. Outside patio was great for bar-b-que.

Very good position for visiting most parts of Cornwall. Local shops and restaurants very good. Some lovely walks along the coast line and around Tintagel Castle. A very comfortable cottage to stay in.
