The owners live on site and aim to provide a discreet yet hospitable service including breakfasts and evening meals, transport from rail stations and airport by prior arrangement.
The cottage is not suitable for wheelchair users, although every assistance will be given to help with accessibility.

This is an ideal location for the beach, walking, golfing, fishing, cycling and bird watching or just complete relaxation with a book in the garden overlooking the lake.

A lovely peaceful place to stay deep in the Cornish countryside overlooking a private lake. Fantastic home from home accommodation - Leslie and Johnny have thought of everything and give you a very warm welcome. Perfectly located to explore the delights of south Cornwall st Michael's Mount Minarck theatre mousehall Penzance and St Ives. Would highly recommend.

I have only positives to review for the cottage. Wonderful quiet location, huge showpiece garden, great outdoor spaces with fully-equipped summerhouse. Add to this a lovely character cottage, sympathetically modernised with every piece of equipment you might want, and Leslie and Johnny, the perfect hosts.

Management response:

Thank you Margaret. We loved having you and your three friends to stay. It is always great when guests are so enthusiastic about the garden and surroundings.

A lovely place to stay - two bedrooms with the double having an en suite toilet and washbasin. The garden is gorgeous and has a summer house overlooking a lake where we would have our aperitif and also our evening meal. Very peaceful and a great location for exploring The Lizard on one side and St Michaels Mount and Mousehole...

Management response:

We really enjoyed having you to stay and the interest you took in the garden and the surrounding area. We would love to have you back to stay with us.
