Ideally located for all south west cornwall, nice welcome with flowers and biccys, clean and fully equipped, didn't need to buy anything, excellent view of St Michaels mount. It was nice to get up in a morning and walk down onto the beach, the kids had a great time on the cobbles. It was only a fifteen minute walk into Penzance which we did once or twice. The only thing not suitable if you have small toddlers was the steps outside in the garden area but this is staed in the advertisement ..I would definitely recommend, the kids didn't want to return home and said it was the best ever.
