Clippity Clop – sleeps 2

Mezzanine bedroom with kingsize bed. Comfortable lounge with dining area.

Eliza's Croft – sleeps 4

One double bedroom. One twin bedded room. Open plan lounge with kitchen and dining area.

Our fifth time here, and hopefully many more to come . To go through the green side gate , close it behind us and amble up the path to the Croft, we enter a warm, peaceful haven that affords a stunning view of distant hills, scattered with dry stone walls that have stood for hundreds of years. On more adventurous days we visit St Ives, Mousehole, Penzance, Kynance cove, to name but a few. And all within easy reach. . . . But always nice to get back to Eliza’s Croft!
