  • "Fabulous home from home."

    The cottage was the perfect base for us to explore Cornwall. The owners were super friendly and gave us some great info of the area and recommendations. We loved sitting out on the swing seat and taking in the beautiful views and our little dog had a blast running around the paddock. Thanks for a great holiday!

  • "Great place for what we needed."

    Everything supplied and if you needed something I'm sure the hoist would supply. Very friendly and helpful. Perfect place for our dog to have a run around first thing, dry off from the beach on the grass or last thing at night (secure and the option of closing the main gate if you needed). Will recommend and already thinking of booking it again next year

  • "Our stay at Little May was really good just what we needed the facilities were as advertised."

    The only thing we would change would be slightly more seating. The area for the dogs was brilliant and the owners were very friendly. It was a shame the weather was not too good but that's Britain for you.

    Got lost trying to find little May don’t use satnav only phone a phone will take you directly there. Once we found the cottage I was blown away a small cosy cottage In a beautiful setting we bought our beagle along with us garden fully enclosed.

I’d 100% stay here again And planning on it just need childcare the owners are the most lovely helpful couple recommend a few walks for us loved them..., their red book with beaches etc highly recommend. Can’t thank them enough thank you so much for making our honeymoon one to remember.

  • "The cottage is ideally situated for rambling beach walks and headland hikes."

    Our dog was welcome and he thoroughly enjoyed romping in the enclosed garden. The facilities were just what we needed for a few days away from the city. We were made to feel very welcome and Clair was a great host. We will definitely come again. No internet meant that we had more time to read. Thank you.

Ideal for dog owners, there is an adjoining private large grassed area for exercising your pet as well as many excellent walks close by.

The owners, who live next door, even offer a dog sitting service by arrangement allowing you to go out for the day or for dinner in the knowledge that your trusted friends are being cared for.

Little May is all ground-floor level making access easy for both you and your pets.

You enter into the open-plan living room with a kitchen, sitting and dining areas.

The double bedroom has direct access into the Jack-and-Jill bathroom.

It benefits from a beautiful rural countryside setting and the dramatic coastline offers a wide choice of beaches including Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth and the famous Newquay beaches are all within a few minutes drive.

Of an evening the Falcon pub located in the pretty village of St Mawgan offers a choice of local ales and food as good a quality as anywhere in the county.

A wide selection of restaurants in Newquay and Jamie Oliver's restaurant at Watergate Bay give you even more choice to suit and cater for all tastes.

The town, with its zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. For avid walkers, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches.
