It is a short drive from the pretty village of Veryan with its historic roundhouses, village pub (the New Inn) and onwards to the quaint fishing village of Portloe.

This is in a beautiful location in a wooded valley close to Veryan and overlooking a lovely garden belonging to the owner who allowed us access to enjoy it.
The owner is very welcoming and the upstairs living quarters of this cottage have been recently refurbished and are lovely. Bedrooms are downstairs and have the potential to be as comfortable but the bathrooms let it down with only one loo, totally inadequate showers and a heating system so noisy it prevented sleep and needed to be turned off. The owner is planning a bathroom upgrade, it should complete the transformation.Beds were not especially comfortable either.
When the downstairs accommodation matches the good standard of the upstairs I would recommend it.
We have stayed at little crugsillick a few times and always look forward to returning We would recommend this property to enyone
We had a fantastic stay at Little Crugsillick. The property is spacious, clean, comfortable and very well equipped with good parking. A vase of fresh flowers, biscuits, milk and wine were a welcome treat on arrival and there was plenty of hand soap etc and cupboard essentials like salt & pepper, tea etc provided which are much appreciated thoughtful little touches. The owners are very friendly and helpful and their garden is absolutely stunning. The views from the living room are wonderful and we enjoyed the walk to Pendower beach. The Roseland is very pretty with lots of lovely places to explore and scenic walks along the headland. We would definitely return.
We received a very warm welcome from Annie, who provided lots of local information hints and tips The cottage had everything for an enjoyable midweek break.
Views over the Manor gardens are uplifting, cream tea at the mill was lovely, after a walk along the coast path.
Take a walk down to Pendower beach delighful and be such to meet Darcy the dog ..
We hope to return in the future
