    “Thank you Margi for a wonderful stay in this cosy Old Stable!”

    Such a picturesque village in the heart of Cornwall, with plenty of sea swimming, coastal walks and warming pubs. The cottage itself was such a sweet bolthole, and Margi provided great communication throughout my stay, explaining that the issues with the extractor fans will be fixed soon and providing a dehumidifier as an alternative. The property was super clean, apart from some remnant dog hair from the previous visitor.
