Quaint little cottage. The beams from when it was a stable are lovely. All amenities were used and worked. Bed was comfy the little garden was gorgeous but wasn't really warm enough to enjoy in the evenings. Friendly family and such a quiet location it was great for resting. Enjoyed listening to the stories of the farm and it's history. The flowersRead more left inside were a lovely touch and having milk tea, coffee and biscuits to enjoy was marvellous especially after a 7 HR drive! Portreath is stunning Hide
