Colin, Barbara & Julie with Megan & Breeze, North Somerset, October 2016

"We arrived to find a lovely cottage, well equipped with real attention to detail. The cream tea and supplies that greeted us were greatly enjoyed! It is an area of Cornwall we were unfamiliar with and the loan maps were much appreciated. Highlights for us were Golitha Falls & Minions, Mevagissey, beach combing at Talland Bay and a splendid Sunday roast at The Jubilee Inn, Pelynt! We squeezed the most out of every day and it was lovely after watching the sun set to know there was a warm, cosy cottage to return to on chilly Autumn evenings. Megs and Breeze will really miss their daily runs in the field. Thank you Neil & Theresa for being such friendly hosts."

Lots of walks, lots of places to visit, this place should have the highest star rating."
