What Our Guests Say
"Absolutely stunning! The views were spectacular and the sunny weather made it perfect. The photos are beautiful but they really don't do the property justice at all, it's so well kept and such a special place. We have already booked to go back next year.
It's also only 10-15 minutes drive into St Ives so lovely to get back to the tranquility of the countryside after busy beach days"
"The perfect place to stay for accessing both the North and South coasts of Cornwall. Penzance, St Ives and beyond all witin easy reach"

"We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, comfy bed, power shower and beautiful location! We had everything we needed and felt extremely safe and at home. The bathroom and kitchen were immaculately clean and we even had a visit from the resident cat who was lovely and friendly. Thank you for having us! Perhaps we'll be back again!"

Location and Things To Do
If you’re coming to Cornwall to enjoy the seaside then you’ll be spoilt for choice between the
North and South coasts with several sandy beaches within a 10 minute drive, Marazion, Hayle, Perranuthnoe and Praa Sands to get you started!
The ancient market town of Marazion with St Michael’s Mount is under 4 miles away. Boasting a
long sandy beach and breathtaking views, it’s a must visit during your stay.
St Ives is easily accessible and definitely worth taking the short train journey via the branch
line from St Erth Station (a 5 minute drive away), taking in the fantastic views across Hayle’s
3 miles of golden sands along the way. When you’re there you can enjoy the many art
galleries and shops as well as take in the sea air or book a trip on one of the sightseeing
boats from the harbour.
Other popular places nearby include Land’s End, Porthcurno, The Minack Theatre and
Penzance to name but a few.
If you fancy venturing a bit further then Kynance Cove on the Lizard Peninsula is definitely recommended, as are the maritime town of Falmouth and the cathedral city of Truro and there's always the Eden Project or even the Isles of Scilly!
