Rita was lovely, it was a lovely touch that she can provide home cooked meals /cakes at a very reasonable price. The location was amazing both secluded and very close to Helston and in driving distance of lands end, St Ives, lizards point and Falmouth. We enjoyed our stay very much and are very likely to return.

We were welcomed by the owners and found a lovely homemade sponge cake and a bottle of wine left for us, together with teabags, sugar and milk. The cottage was warm and inviting and the bed was very comfortable. We were lucky with the weather and were able to take advantage of many of the nearby attractions. Our dog loved it! We had a home cooked mRead moreeal delivered to our door one evening which was very tasty. All in all a really lovely break in the beautiful cottage. Hide

This is a lovely cottage but we feel it is most suitable for spring and summer as it is not [particularly warm due to the high ceilings. The wine and cake were most welcome and we will return to this complex of cottages with our grandchildren. It was lovely to see Rita again.

A good central location for exploring south west cornwall. A very friendly and accommodating host. 5 miles either way to towns so in the countryside but not too remote.
