The cottage is in a quiet and peaceful location, overlooking fields in which alpacas are grazing. It is located about a mile from the main road, but feels as though you are well away from towns and villages. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and the cottage was very well prepared for our needs. The outside patio area offered the opportunity of eating outside and a splendid gas fired barbecue was available for our use. Inside, the cottage was thoughtfully laid out and very comfortable. The kitchen area was very well equipped and all we required was available. We were very impressed with the way that all the cutlery, crockery and utensils matched and were of a high quality. Every effort had been made to make the environment as pleasant and welcoming as possible and the owners should be congratulated for the way in which they had set out the cottage. For entertainment, the TV and DVD player, together with a radio and CD player met all our requirements and there was a good selection of games and Dvds for our use. The cottage was very clean and well prepared for us, which gave a very good impression. In relation to heating, it was helpful to have oil filled electric radiators available as well as oil fired central heating if required.
Although the cottage is close to the owners' house and shares access, it was very quiet and we were not disturbed by any of the farm activity. There was plenty of room for our car and we could get it close to the door for loading and unloading.
We took the opportunity of meeting the alpacas and finding out about how they need to be looked after. It was fascinating having them in the field beside the cottage and a pleasure to watch them being fed in the morning. There were clear places where we could walk and the worker, looking after the animals, was full of enthusiasm and a pleasure to listen to.
All we required was available locally and it was excellent centre for exploring East and South Cornwall.
