Just what we needed to revive us. We had a lovely walk around the village. I was delighted at the cleanliness of the cottage, I...

About the neighbourhood
Located in the far west of Great Britain on a peninsula almost completely surrounded by the sea, magnificent granite coastline wraps around Cornwall for almost 300 miles. Cornwall is also the location of mainland Great Britain's most southerly point, The Lizard, and one of the most westerly points, Land's End. With a vast landscape of spectacular clifftops, this dramatic coastline boasts unspoilt fishing harbours, miles of sandy beaches and pounding Atlantic surf - which provides a natural playground for a variety of water sports. And who can forget the famous Cornish pasties for a traditional lunchtime snack, and luscious afternoon cream teas?

The South West coast path provides walks for all abilities, leading to a host of old smugglers caves, beaches, and pretty Cornish hamlets....
