We've been and stayed in the self catering a couple of times and found the whole experience relaxing and stress free. The owners are similarly relaxed and nothing is too much trouble. The accommodation is warm, clean and spacious, location is rural and quiet, there are no worries if children run off to see the alpacas there is no traffic, a good stash of toys is provided as are free load BBQs and the chance to purchase local ethical charcoal, at night the sky is amazingly dark without any kind of background noise.
As a base, it is within easy reach of Penzances, Helston and Hayle, the beach between Hayle and Godrevy is as good as you could hope for anywhere, National trust membership will pay for itself in free car parking, try a sunset BBQ in the dunes near the sunset cafe for a truly memorable experience.
Cornwall is justifiably very popular and can be busy,this is a welcome exception. Many thanks again to Liz & Ian.
