A fabulous way to spend Christmas. The property was so welcoming, very warm, spotlessly clean and totally relaxing. It didn't matter that the weather outside was blowing a gale we loved coming back to chill out and enjoy our family time together. Beautiful North Cornwall too what's not to like!

We enjoyed a lovely week at St John's View (Tranquil Retreat).. Wall to wall sunshine for the whole week!!! The view is beautiful accompanied with a soundtrack of a babbling stream, birdsong, the distant sound of the sea - all interjected by the occasional bleating of a sheep was lovely.
