Great propert, location and hosts
This is the second time we've stayed at Little Jago and it hopefully won't be the last.
The hosts are welcoming and friendly, without being intrusive - living on the property, they're accessible if needed.
Little Jago is in a very quiet location, albeit a little off the beaten track (which we like) - so you'll need transport to get anywhere - including the great local beach and pub (The New Inn) at Veryan - both worth a visit.
The property itself is comfortable for 5 (2 + 3), our party had 2 couples and 1 child. Being a bungalo, everything is on one level. A huge garden is great for kids and, as an amateur astronomer, I love the dark skies.
A couple of things to be aware of:
1) Being rural Cornwall, don't expect superfast broadband - there is enough speed for netflix on a tablet, but 4K streaming is not going to be an option
2) Cornish roads are narrow and bendy! Again, normal for the area, and fine if you take your time and drive responsibly. If you are bringing a bigger vehicle, be confident with reversing and using passing places.
Overall, even with some of the worst Cornish weather I've experienced in years, we had a lovely and relaxing time and I genuinely look forward to returning.
Super accommodation. Owners - lovely couple (nice baking provided on our arrival).
Great location, ideal for dog owners.
The delightful and charming village of Veryan on the Roseland Peninsula is most famous for its nineteenth century thatched Round Houses. There are five in all, two pairs of which stand at each end of the village and another in the centre. They were originally built by a missionary named Reverend Jeremiah Trist for his daughters. In a round house there are no corners where the devil can hide. A crucifix on the top of each one adds extra protection!
Veryan is ideally located for exploring the Roseland Peninsula and is only moments from the spectacular Carne Beach or the dramatic coastline around the historic fishing village of Portloe. Nearby is the lovingly restored Melinsey Mill where you can relax in a charming valley with a delicious Cornish cream tea.
Portloe is considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of the Roseland peninsula and one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. Its steep sided valleys has meant that it has managed to escape development over the years and many buildings differ little from when they were built. Sir John Betjeman said of Portloe "One of the least spoiled and most impressive of Cornish fishing villages".
It is wonderfully quiet and peaceful, yet it has a really good local pub & hotel. The village itself is only a short drive from the other villages such as St Mawes. The city of Truro is also within a 25 minute drive.
The Lugger Hotel in Portloe with its excellent restaurant is only a short drive away and the Ship Inn is also a good place to eat in Portloe. The New Inn at Veryan serves food. There are shops at Veryan and a Londis store at Bessy Beneath. Further pubs, shops & restaurants are also available in Tregony, Ruan Lanihorne, Portscatho & St Mawes.
