A wonderful get-away from it all, quiet location, but not remote from the areas many natural attractions. Any worries about 'train noise' are totally unnecessary - nothing disturbed our peace! So many 'extras' provided from books, DVD's and games, to street maps, weather forcasts and even TV guide - we soon realised we'd packed too much! We're sorry to leave!

This compact,cute home was in an excellent, central location for visiting all areas of Cornwall, which was lovely. I did miss having a washing machine. The owners, who live near, were very friendly and helpful but not intrusive.

The cottage was extremely comfortable and every detail was thought of, including salt & pepper, tea towels etc etc. The owners were extremely pleasant and we were made to feel welcome and at home. Our every need was thought of. The cottage was in a lovely tranquil spot and very quiet. The only down side was it was placed an extremely long way for any sort of evening entertainment. There was a local pub but if you walked there it was up very dark narrow lanes. We are used to going out in the evening but found it very hard to do this with one person having to drive and cabs into Looe and back each night would have been very expensive.

We were made to feel very welcome by the owners who live onsite. The welcome pack on arrival - milk, eggs and a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge were a very nice touch. The cottage was compact but very clean and sufficient for 2 people.
