"homely, warm, clean, contemporary, arty, 'home from home'"
Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the owners and were offered a nice glass of wine in their house next door. Than they showed us around and we were very impressed by the cottage. Fridge full of everything you need for the first day, daffodils on the table and it was nice and warm!
Location is great for us because of the central position and it is nice and quiet. In a couple of weeks we're coming back to Cornwall for a longer period of time and Pell Allema Cottage is our 'home from home', that's for sure!
