Ivy Cottage was perfectly located and a lovely base for our family beach holiday. The house was well presented and equipped. It is a small cottage, but good for a small family as long as nobody is taller than average as the ceilings are low in part. Being able to walk to the beach was brilliant. Lovely local pub and beach restaurant within walking Read moredistance. Hide

the Cottage is very nice, cosy and fully equipped. Beach, village, pub and cafe is quite nice as well. We only missed a car park in front of the cottage, because it is quite difficult to find a parking space in the village during the day

We enjoyed our stay at Ivy Cottage. It was small but cosy and well equiped. Well situated also in a quiet street near the beach, the south-west coast path, the Lost Gardens of Heligan etc. But if you're a bit taller: mind your head! The ceiling is a bit low at some points.

Planning to stay again soon. Lovely area. Beautifully maintained listed cottage steeped in history. Nice touches on arrival. Apple juice, milk, tea, coffee, sugar and teacakes on the counter. Washing powder and condiments also in readiness. Also boasted a washer/dryer and dishwasher along with a new fan assisted oven which was a Godsend. Clean bed Read morelinen and towels provided. A stones throw from the beach and the 2 local pubs, The Ship and Into The Woods were fab. The food was so good in The Ship Hide

The cottage was great fro what we wanted and the village is fantastic, one pub, cafe and a shop. No amusements or lots of music, it was great. Beach is ok but i would say take surf socks as the stones cut :)
