It was spotlessly clean and very homely, my wife met the owner and she was very welcoming and friendly. The owner has taken great care to make sure every conceivable item you have at home is at your disposal. From matches for the candles, many books on the area, to scales if you want to bake a cake...............on that point it was lovely to find Read morehome baked cake and cookies on our arrival. I would recommend Churn cottage very highly. Hide

This is the second time we have been to Churn Cottage and once again we enjoyed every minute. Cottage is ideal for two people who want a quiet relaxing break from a busy world and cottage fills that need absolutely. We even forgave the cows for making a mess in the lane on their way to milking each day and holding us up occasionally.

Lovely peaceful stay, despite the weather. Great welcome with tea, coffee, milk, even cake and biscuits; fresh flowers and an extra heater. We were left alone to enjoy our privacy knowing where the owners were if we needed them. Great location for exploring both the north and south coast.
