Cornish gem in the heart of golant
Comfortable, clean, open plan accommodation. central location comes with a smallish parking bay, which might challenge some drivers. More comfortable outdoor seating would be a welcome addition. Otherwise would not hesitate to recommend.
A cosy, pleasant and comfortable home
The house in which we stayed was a cosy, pleasant and comfortable house. The village of Golant is a nice little village with friendly locals. We even joint an annual event "Madness at the pill". Competitions on the water in homemade vessels. With our holiday house as a our basis we explored Cornwall which has beautiful nature and great coastlines. We enjoyed our holiday very much.
