Comfortable, well equipped accommodation with a lovely view across fields to the sea. Nice walk from the cottage via footpath to Gwynver beach and the South West Coastal path. Accommodation was nice and warm. Location was perfect for Lands End and other local beauty spots. I would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed its quiet location and view of the sea. At this moment in time it was good to be away from crowds of people. The ease of access to many coastal walks, beaches and stunning scenery is a huge bonus.

Hen's nest is a lovely holiday cottage suitable for a couple. It is in a very peaceful and tranquil setting and is an ideal base to explore Cornwall's spectacular countryside; the beaches are so close by to be enjoyed and are exceptionally clean. We are returning again next year as it's such a great place to go with everything you need close by. MrRead mores Jenkin is very accommodating and the farm animals enjoy left over bread ! Hide

This cottage is in the same building as another cottage, but we never felt crowded. The pony in the field beyond the garden is very friendly and not at all fazed by our dogs barking, and the walks around the area are beautiful. Easy bus access into various nearby towns. We didn't drive at all.
