We stayed at Bumbledown the 2nd week of June this year and had a fantastic holiday. The cottage is located just outside of Mount Hawke so great for access for all parts of West Cornwall. The cottage is on the smaller side but has all the things you need and has a great outside area with a secret garden which due to the good weather we took full advRead moreantage of. The owners were lovely and friendly and even posted my watch back to me free of charge after I left it by accident. Highly recommended. Hide

The cottage is in a wonderful location down a short track surrounded by wild flowers. The view from the garden was lovely and you could watch the cows coming and going from the milking sheds while listening to birdsong.
