    A Wonderful stay in a delightful cottage. Great days at the beaches - Watergate Bay - Constantine bay and Sandy Acres. The Wictory Pub is fantastic. Great welcome by Buffy and her staff. Also Portreath harbour makes for a lovely walk on the way home stopping at the Waterfront Inn for a last drink.  Thank you Mike and Kathleen - helpful, welcoming and unobtrusive.
    We really enjoyed our stay at Pixie Cottage, its in a beautiful location close to lots of beaches, some of our favourites are Portreath and St. Ives, we had some delicious meals at Trickys and Morish fish and chips. Week has gone by so fast wish we could stay longer. Will be back soon. Thanks to Mike and Kathleen for making our stay enjoyable.
    Great bodyboarding on Tuesday at Porthtowan Beach and good food still at Fox and Hounds, Scorrier. The cottage has been fitted out so well and thanks Kathleen and Mike for showing us your studio and amazing stained glass and for your help and hospitality.
