"The cottage was extremely comfortable and every detail was thought of, including salt & pepper, tea towels etc etc. The owners were extremely pleasant and we were made to feel welcome and at home. Our every need was thought of. The cottage was in a lovely tranquil spot and very quiet. The only down side was it was placed an extremely long way for any sort of evening entertainment. There was a local pub but if you walked there it was up very dark narrow lanes. We are used to going out in the evening but found it very hard to do this with one person having to drive and cabs into Looe and back each night would have been very expensive."
