We enjoyed a lovely week staying at Trecara which is tucked away in a quiet courtyard but is within a few minutes walk of Porthmeor beach, the Tate and main shopping streets. The cottage was a good size, clean,comfortable and well equipped with everything needed for our stay. Plenty of seating in the living room area and large main bedroom & bathroom. Nice to have the choice of a bath or use of the over bath shower. We would definitely like to stay here again in the future.
