It is a good location to explore the western region of Cornwall. The appartement is well equiped, but not luxorious. You can reach the South West Coast Path from the location. You can reach Pothcurnow beach, Lands End, Mousehole and Penzance quickly by car. One the property there are other appartements. The owners are very friendly.

A home from home vacation. Literally perfect location and accommodation for me - secluded, quiet and very comfortable. Literally everything you could possibly need for a holiday.

Top Shelter was spotlessly clean, warm,comfortable, nice big comfortable bed. Everything we needed was here (including a cream tea) plenty of places to visit. Perfect holiday location. Only thing that might stop us returning is the 300 mile journey from our home in Kent.

We had a wonderful week staying in Top Shelter. Despite the best efforts of the weather we stayed warm, dry and very cosy. It's brilliantly located for exploring the far corners of Cornwall and it's lovely and quiet and properly dark at night. Dogs are welcome and ours had an absolute blast running around the fields and chasing after the odd deer (Read morewho always beat him to the hedges). The only downside for us was that the week had to come to an end - we could happily have stayed indefinitely. Hide

Good points: The location is excellent. It is very peaceful (but see * below) It is comfortable and well equipped. Bad points: * The owner lets her dog out around 5:45 every morning and it barks loudly for 5-10 minutes before she lets it back in - not what you want when on holiday.
