Overall the house and gardens are lovely. Garden furniture in need of a good clean. Where the house is situated (far from the town center) you definitely need a car. 30 minutes from Bude and 55 minutes away from Padstow.

Not as much of a rural/remote setting as we had envisaged but beautiful home and garden. Close to all amenities and very comfortable for 8 people.
