We were very comfortable in the property. it suits us because it is quiet and we can take the the dog. Avery lovely area.
We enjoyed our stay here - easy access to coast and riverside paths and ferry to St Mawes (when running). The cottage was just the right size for the two of us with patio for afternoon sunshine.
A lovely place; thoroughly enjoyed staying in the cottage and would recommend this to couples or parent and one child.
This was just perfect for us. No traffic, fantastic dawn choruses, the availability to have a mooring for our boat, a comfortable bed, a wood burner, and good WiFi.
Our comments might be that a slightly bigger sofa and some shades on the wall lights to soften the lighting would just make it that much cosier.
However, we will certainly return!
We had a lovely week here, location is wonderful. Lots of walking.
Facilities in the house were good
It is very small and the 4ft 6 inch bed was a challenge, but warm and cosy.
The chairs in the living room were very very uncomfortable and need replacing to something more comfortable. We found ourselves going to bed early to get comfortable.
But it didnt spoil our week of walking and discovery.
