Guest Reviews


    • “The neighbours were very friendly and helpful. The position of the cottage was very good because we had access to the area with or without the car. The area was full of historical interest and there were local cultural events to attend. We enjoyed our stay there very much.”

    Ms Strickland, Penzance, October 2014

    • “Quiet away from main road. Wood burning stove easy and cosy for cooler nights. Bedrooms of good size and nicely furnished. Kitchen tiny but had everything we needed.”

    Mrs Howard, Cockermouth, April 2014
