Our Story

We fell in love with Cornwall when we moved here several years ago.  Having spent all of our adult lives in the West Country we jumped at the opportunity to relocate from Gloucestershire to Cornwall with our young family and spend more time in and on the sea!  Cornwall is a unique place, it’s steeped in myth and legend – from beasts and sunken lands to “piskies”, which makes it feel very different, almost magical.  Life is slower, people are unassuming, have time to talk, tell a story and are welcoming.  We hope you will find the same when you visit us, in fact many guests say they wished they’d booked to stay longer.

With a background in the hospitality business and years of looking after the assets of one of Cornwall’s largest land owners we are well placed to ensure you have a relaxing break and are able to explore all of Cornwall’s treasures.  If you’d like a little extra comfort or company our very friendly labrador, wire-haired dachshund and cat are always unobtrusively on hand!

There are two cottages that we ourselves would love to stay in. Both are individually furnished and include super comfortable beds with crisp white linen, a woodburning stove, powerful showers, well equipped kitchens and an artistic and cosy ambience.  They are perfectly located for exploring Cornwall.
