Very welcoming place in a quiet and clean area. It is 5-7 mins walking to the beach which is one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen in UK. Lidl 5mins away driving and Asda and some more commercial shops are about 7-10mins away driving too. Loads of beautiful places to visit around which are 45min-1h driving but it is worth it as the views around to take you there are stunning! Very easy the check in, the kitchen is equipped with everything you need for cooking.

A good value for your money. We really enjoyed our stay. Communication with the host was very easy, responsive and always available. Place itself would suit younger families with children. I found living room a bit crowded (too many sofa, 3 arm chairs and dinning table), but that's just matter of style. Bedroom were nicely decorated, kitchen well equipped and bathroom with a good size. 5-10 mins walk to the beach which was very appreciated and convenient. Lidl/Asda and/or petrol stations within 6mins drive. Overall happy with the place and area, and if we would return in the future, we would definitely consider this place/the host. Thank you!

Fantastic place to stay on the beach in Cornwall. One of the best of the little cottages which dot the sand dunes, and was obviously freshly updated, painted, and with a new bathroom. A rare cottage with three separate bedrooms, and separated by a small hallway from the kitchen, which in turn has a separate small living area: great with small children as we could put them to sleep and not disturb them in the kitchen. Toms were great, and easily accommodated an extended stay.
