Would like to keep Dormouse a secret! Very enjoyable stay.

It was very clean and comfortable. Lovely jacuzzi with great views. A short walk away from the local pub. A good stock of kitchen equipment very clean. A gas bbq for usage and sunbeds. Plenty of towels to use. The steps are fairly steep but probably only a problem because of my fractured hand. Bed was comfy and the tv with extra channels such as NeRead moretflix was handy. Lovely owners very friendly. Hide

An amazing central location for touring the area both North and South Coast. The cottage is situated on a working dairy farm where peace and quiet reign. Clean and comfortable describes the cottage to a tee and the owners Joe and Brian could not be more helpful. Good pet friendly pub 10 minutes walk away.

The cottage was very well equipped and became our home from home very quickly. The hot tub was an additional bonus and the pub was within walking distance (0.6 miles) which was dog friendly. The scenery was stunning and it was lovely to wake up in such tranquil and beautiful surroundings.

Lovely quite location to get away from the world around, great to sit in the hot tub with a glass of wine, and unwind from a great day in Cornwall. The food in The Crown Inn was wonderful, both quality and price, with lovely staff. This property is in a good location to get out and about.
