The chalet is in a great position and is really well thought out with everything you need. My only suggestion would be a slightly bigger dining table which folds up out of the way when not in use and a garlic crusher!! We had a wonderful holiday, thank you.

Have just returned from a week at Toms holidays in Penlee and have to admit it was the most beautiful chalet ever. We had a great view of the estuary and Lelant. Have stayed in a number of properties here (D61 Kiamena, and before it was Toms holidays I stayed in "Broadclyst" as a child).
Had the comfiest beds ever and nice clean duvets and pillows. The only issue was because the fridge had been shut it smelt a little bit, sorted it with a quick wipe out!
Have already booked for 2015!! :-D Can't wait and am counting the weeks down. :-) x
