The cottage is in a lovely tranquil location. The sounds of the river and birdsong were pretty much all you can hear. Inside it was clean and very comfortable and well equipped. The broadband was patchy at times, but on holiday we should keep away from emails shouldn't we? Well situated for visiting the North Cornwall coast and Bodmin Moor.
