The cottage was lovely. Location was perfect as a base for exploring this part of Cornwall. Dogs loved the fire in the evening after a hard day exploring the local beaches. Cottage was well equipped and the welcome pack was excellent. Amazing showers! Would definitely return if coming to this area again.

We had a lovely week stay at Otters Retreat over the Easter break. The cottage is really lovely & has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The location is really central, but you will need to drive. There are some fantastic walks from the door & we really enjoyed the walk along saints way to Padstow, sadly the kids were too tired to walk bacRead morek so we got the bus, which again was really easy. I would recommend this property. Hide

This is a good location with easy driving access to a number of interesting places. We enjoyed the circular Camel Way/Saints Way walk to Padstow. I would recommend the two local restaurants although you do have to be very careful walking to the one in the village at night!
