After a lousy trip down to Cornwall because of the miserable weather that day it was brilliant to have a cream tea waiting for us. A real tonic to lift the spirits. The owners couldn't have been more helpful during the whole of our weeks stay.

Beautiful courtyard of apartments in a really good area. Well equipped and perfectly clean, with very comfortable beds. Mostly dependent on WiFi for internet. Hosts were very friendly and helpful.

We had a wonderful time staying at the top shelter recently. We didnt want to leave! The location is superb, so peaceful and beautiful. We really enjoyed walks around the farm and down to the coastal path. Mr and Mrs Jeffery were super hosts- even kindly bringing in our tesco order when we had travel issues and arrived late! Would highly recommend.Read more We will be back! Charlotte, Alex and Siggy the dog Hide

Very comfortable accommodation, clean & tidy. As it's situated on a farm it is accessed via a narrow road but that is the only drawback.

Lovely little property. Very central as only a short drive to the landmarks in that area. We would have preferred something more private, as where we stayed is what seemed to be an old barn turned into 4 little cottages. We would have also liked something closer to the beach, that we could easily walk to rather than having to drive every day. OtherRead more then that, it was great. Hide

The property is very small. The bed was comfortable but the shower/wet room wasnt great although it would be very suitable for an elderly or disabled person. There is no view from the property; you face into a courtyard. We felt it was a bit claustrophobic.
