the host and hostess are friendly and kind. They went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was high quality and we sat in front of the window overlooking the sun rise over the sea.

On arrival we were almost turned away by unfriendly landlady who had taken our deposit and sent an email giving a wonderful description of the flat. The shabby sitting room had a camp bed, the sheets were stained and pillow was too smelly to sleep on. The kitchen which was out of bounds but had to be passed through to...

Coverack was a nice stop for our Costal path walk between Penzance and Falmouth. We stopped at Penmarth house for 2 days and walked first day to the Lizard Point and the last day to Gillan Creeck.

Very comfortable room and excellent breakfasts. Just 200m from the South west coast path but the owners offer transfers to the start of walks further afield. The hosts were very welcoming and Coverack is a delightful corner of Cornwall.

we wanted to book an extra evening in Cornwall to extend our week long stay and dine at Harbour lights restaurant. Our impression based on the prompt and courteous feedback to enquiry (bedroom for two plus a small dog)was initially good. However upon on arrival we couldn't have been more wrong. We were met by a rude man working on...
