Of course you can never odds the weather but beyond that a peaceful stay in an interesting location. Good facilities and an ideal base for North Cornwall places of interest. We walked the Arthurian trail and enjoyed that. Will return. Recomended.

We visited in early June, car park was small but easily accessible in a camper van. The centre is in the process of getting the Arthur stone preserved, it's been investigated by English heritage and they are keen to find out more. The man who...More
