I have always appreciated staying somewhere "better than home". So for those wet, rainy days, or if you're not feeling so well, I made sure Sidings really is home from home and a joy to stay in, with everything you need to hand, as great for staying in as going out.
What a brilliant base for exploring Cornwall. Have packed in so much, absolute highlights were finding wild garlic and cooking pesto. Polkerris, ferry from Fowey to Polruan and most definitely Polperro, what a beautiful part of the world. Would definitely come again and recommend to all. Oh – and the kids were impressed with all the TV’s!
