Comfortable and warm during our late March stay with a wonderful view towards the sea. Everything that was required for a nice stay was on hand and the pint of milk, scones, jam and clotted cream were a welcome surprise. Charlestown harbor was lovely and the apartment was a great base for exploring the Cornish south coast.
