The perfect home away from home. We've stayed in a lot of cottages over the years, and this one is the dream - every last thing has been considered, so you want for nothing - it was so easy to be there. The cottage is lovely, in a GREAT location, the field with play equipment was hugely appreciated by my 5yo, and the hosts were gracious and helpfulRead more - they are there for you if you need them, but leave you to it when you don't. Fabulous views. Felt completely safe, C19-wise. Highly recommended. Hide

Fabulous location to explore north Cornwall. The cottage is beautifully presented, ultra clean and comes with all the amenities to make your stay as comfortable as your own home. The outside space available to guests is amazing (especially for young families with children) with a small field including swings and a slide and if you like farm animalsRead more you have sheep and chickens to admire. Overall, the best holiday cottage I have stayed in and would definitely recommend Kitts cottage to everyone. Hide

Lovely welcome from Roxanne when we arrived, and the cottage is well equipped and cosy. Having the large paddock was amazing, and our dog loved playing in there. Although the cottage is on a busy road, the traffic noise did not keep us awake, and the property and watching the sunsets from the garden more than made up for this.
