“A lovely little hideaway”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

So small and yet everything you need is provided. Very well thought out. We were comfortable and happy. We enjoyed an excellent supper at the 5 Pilchards. We visited the Seal Sanctuary. We swam in the sea, very refreshing. We enjoyed the beautiful countryside. We had a fabulous breakfast at the Fat Apple Caffe. Best moment was walking the dog early on the beach and seeing the sun rise and three swans swimming in the golden light, so beautiful and peaceful.
Just one other thought it probably would be a bit tight for big people, we are 5 foot 10 inches etc. and it was fine but I wouldn't think my 6 foot 4 inches brother in law would be so comfortable. Also I probably won't return when older and a bit stiffer as you need to be good at getting up and down the ladder, my husband held on to me every time I was getting up worried I might fall down, it was funny this time but it might be more of a worry when we are not so agile.

“Loved it! Exactly what was needed!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was the perfect base to explore the Lizard.

The storage solution are amazing for a small place however it was the perfect amount of space needed.

The milk and biscuits was a lovely welcoming when we opened the door. It was very clean and just overall great value.

If your after wifi then this isn't the place for you however I found this a blessing as it gave us a reason to truly shut off and we really needed that!!

We have nothing bad to say about this place!

Liked best: The very clever design of the studio and the fact that it is so close to the beach
Liked least: No mobile phone signal which obviously cant be helped! You can get a signal on the beach though which provided us with a lovely excuse to go for a walk in the evening!
