Great quiet location with off road parking for our car and our bikes! This is a beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean house with everything you need for a holiday. The owners are lovely, being very helpful and communication was easy before and during the holiday. We will definitely return!

Management response:

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your holiday in Cornwall and found the house to your liking. It was lovely to meet you both and we look forward to welcoming you again.
