Beautiful accommodation in the best location. Best beach on your doorstep. We stayed in the Dolphin bungalow which was clean, modern and pretty & a brilliant base to call home for a week!... or two. Beds very comfortable and quiet. Can see St Ives from our living room!

The owner, Barbara was very polite and efficient in response to my original request for accommodation. We arrived early which proved to be no problem and the room was of a high standard-very clean and well-specced. Bottles of water, supplies of tea and coffee and Cornish biscuits replenished daily was lovely. Very nice breakfasts each day, with a wide selection....
