We had been to this holiday cottage 3 times before in 2007-09, and decided to give it another go.
we were really glad we did as it has kept its charm, and I remembered why we liked it in the first place - peace and rest!
Stayed in the 5* cottage nr Falmouth, the layout suits well and all the fixtures are classy, not like some holiday homes where any old furniture will do. In fact the place has been redecorated since we came last and was in better condition than it was 6 years ago!
The beds are sumptuous and you catch up on sleep, the kitchen is well stocked with utensils and the kids loved it. You can get DVD's or board games up at reception which helped, there is a games room with table tennis, bar billiards, table football, and a pool table.
The key though is the indoor swimming pool, not huge but great for a family, and the restaurant "Café Azur" has excellent food every time.
The weather was nice but to be honest even if it wasn't we would have still enjoyed the stay a great home from home, the beaches are great and scenery fantastic.
I would recommend to anyone wanting to rest and have a relaxing time.
Stayed April 2015, travelled with family
A great break for us all. We enjoyed the relaxed and peaceful surroundings but is well located near to Falmouth (which is great) and Truro.
The cottages are very well equipped with top quality equipment that suited us very well.
We would recommend this cottage to any one.
