“There is more to the place that meets the eye. For example that there are several fields at the back of the house where you can walk the dog, and also the coastal path runs through next to the property and you can access Mousehole or Newlyn through it. The couple who live there were lovely and very helpful.” Josu, August 2020
“Amazing converted stone barn. Was more spacious than we imagined especially in the living room. Fast internet for streaming movies and a lovely fireplace. View of the water from the kitchen over a beautiful field. Close to Mousehole and Newlyn for supplies. Great support from the owners when we needed them.” Nikolas, December 2020
