First time visit after recommendation - booked our return visit after three days - this is how this type of holiday offering should be done. Great accommodation by that I mean super clean, spacious, very comfortable beds and high quality linen - and of course that gorgeous view.

We visited last week for our son to try out the climbing walls in the 'base camp' £4 after school hours which we felt was great value. At weekends the price rises to £12 (£15 for adults) which we felt was far too expensive for the walls provided. Lovely clean, new building with an indoor play area. This was £6...

Ian, Thanks for your lovely words, and particularly comparing us against other exotic venues. Cornwall I think is one of the loveliest places in the world not just in the UK, the people are friendly, the food is excellent and the beaches compare with the best in the world. Glad you enjoyed yourself, and come back soon. Bill Haslam (Owner)
