Our stay at island cottage was fantastic the location couldn't be more perfect.

August 2015

I would be happy to recommend Island Cottage to potential future guests. The cottage is clean and comfortable, contains all the facilities required for a fun family holiday, and is ideally located for easy access to beaches (Portgwidden beach is literally a one minute walk from the cottage), the coastal footpath, shops and restaurants.
