We stayed at Pearl River Cottage for a week in early June and had a wonderful time, not least because we were graced with great weather. The cottage is located on a small residential road in West Alvington, away from the main A381 through the village. Parking is available on street opposite the property, but we chose to park at the end of the road where there is a larger parking area and turning circle. The key is stored in a little combination lock box by the front door.
Inside, the cottage was immaculately clean with everything necessary for a week's stay - utensils, basic store cupboard items, games, books etc etc. Bedding and towels are provided but we took our own beach towels for the seaside. A lovely touch is a welcome basket including bread, jam, cake, milk, butter, orange juice and a local paper. Downstairs is just one room with the kitchen and lounge being open plan. The small dining table is by the front window. There is a sofa and separate armchair
