    “The cottage was great - spacious, well-kitted out, nicely decorated and with access to the Maenporth Estate facilities.”

    We used the pool every day and went to the beach most days too. I had a nice chat with the owner a few days before our stay and she gave me some useful pointers about good places to visit. There is a lot to do nearby. ...

    We used the pool every day and went to the beach most days too. I had a nice chat with the owner a few days before our stay and she gave me some useful pointers about good places to visit. There is a lot to do nearby. Not necessarily for publishing: the only slight difficulty I had was getting laundry dry as the weather was quite wet while we were there and the washer-drier has been replaced with a drier. Things did eventually dry on the airer in the conservatory, but it was a bit tricky with a full load of washing plus all our swimming things. A minor niggle. It would be an even more brilliant place if the Maenporth Estate leisure centre could also arrange babysitting, and maybe also offer some basic beauty treatments, in addition to its existing useful services. Any chance of getting that feedback through?
