Hillside cottage is excellent accommodation and ideally situated for exploring the area around St Austell. The cottage is very well equipped and of a high standard, both of which add to the enjoyment of the holiday. We would recommend it as a place to stay.

A very comfortable and spacious cottage. Plenty of refrigeration and enough utensils if you wanted to cook. Nice walk to the beach and the pub round the corner very friendly. Shop is a few yards away and stocks the basic essentials and farm shop has fresh veg/eggs. Nice secluded beaches a few miles away Overall an enjoyable stay.
