Location is great, you can walk (20 min.) to a small shop and nice pub in Veryan, walk to the beach (20 min.) and if you like get right on the coastal path from there.
Tearoom only 5 minutes away. Cottage is nice when staying with teenagers, because of the two bedrooms with ensuite and living/kitchen just in between.
You can hear some traffic passing by, but not disturbing. Friendly owners.
The cottage was very comfortable, spacious, clean and well-presented. The hostess made us very welcome and has a lovely garden that you can explore. Its a great location with a nice woodland path down to the beach and excellent privacy. The local beaches are walkable and attractive. There is a very nice mill just down the road where you can have a lovely evening meal.
The Studio was perfect for our break away and is very convenient having two bathrooms. The well stocked kitchen was great for self catering and the owners were very friendly coming to introduce themselves once we were settled. Facilities all worked well and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location was perfect for visits to St Mawes and the Roseland area. The single beds in the second room were rather uncomfortable and there was a musty smell in the double bedroom however this did not ruin our stay.
We thought some comfortable garden chairs would be a good addition even if it was just plastic chairs stacked somewhere.
I loved feeding the chickens and also exploring the gorgeous garden.
