Simply Beautiful
I loved every second we stayed in this cottage with my wife and three kids aged 18, 13 and 11. The main problem was that the kids wanted to spend all their time in the cottage so we didn't get out as much as I'd wanted to! It is impossible to imagine anywhere more quiet and secluded, yet you're still in a little hamlet with other houses so don't feel unsafe. Ten minutes drive in one direction and you're in beautiful Porthleven, and fifteen minutes in the other direction and you're in Penzance. The beach is 500m but due to terrain I'd say it's 10 minutes walk. There were very young children and older people on the beach, so it's accessible to all ages, but certainly only the able bodied. The cottage was stocked with absolutely everything we could possibly need, and the scones cream and jam were certainly appreciated.

Lovely location
Quiet cottage in beautiful location. Beach nearby but tricky access with tiny children. Cottage homely and thoroughly enjoyed scones jam and cream on arrival. Very lucky with the weather
