A fabulous stay in Cornwall. The Longhouse is perfect for a short stay, although it is very well set up for longer holidays. We couldn't fault the cottage, it was immaculate, clean, fresh - everything looked brand new. We ate out mostly as there are great restaurants in nearby Porthleven a picturesque harbour, notably Kota Kai, Amelie's, for lunch try the crab sarnie at the Ship and of course Rick Stein (sharing platters are a must) but I did also cook Dinner and the tasty breakfast the owner left in the fridge for our arrival (had to be the best bacon ever) Visit St Ives, The Lizard, Praa Sands, Mousehole, Coverack and of course Lands End, prepare to part with £5 car park fee to get in but it's a photo op must. Or ask Julian for the best places nearby for a lovely refreshing walk. We will definitely return as soon as a relaxing, peaceful, pleasant stay is required. A little gem in Cornwall.
Well...what can I say? The Longhouse is simply perfection.
The photos on here don't do the property justice - it is absolutely lovely, airy and light. The only sound you tend to hear is birdsong, and the private garden is a true suntrap and very peaceful.
My partner and I stayed for a little R&R after I had handed in my dissertation and it was exactly what I needed! Julian could not be more attentive and happy to help, and the welcome breakfast pack was a much appreciated touch (and delicious!).
The property is perfect if you like walking because there's plenty of walks around (Godolphin Hill offers amazing views around Cornwall), or if you like the beach Praa Sands or Church Cove are really close and really brill little spots. The property's also in a perfect location for exploring areas around the south coast. Although my partner and I don't have children and didn't take our dog, the property would be perfect for either - it's very secure and private.
Cannot thank Julian enough for a wonderful holiday!
