Owned by a charitable trust now. Kept well and a few moments of peace and quiet away from the Cornish mainland. Highly recommend.

Lovely lovely place. Tons of places to eat and shop. Great little beach. Will definitely come back. Head to Miss Marples tea room for a fabulous Cornish cream tea. It will not disappoint.
