    “A perfect place to explore North Cornwall from.”

    A lovely old cottage, with all the amenities you would expect. The plumbing needs to be looked at, it's a shame you can only use one shower at a time! Also, as one reviewer has commented it is very musty, and even more so when it rains.

    Many thanks for your feedback and we do all we can to maintain Ayr to modern standards, but with it dating back to the 1600's this can be a challenge at times! We will address the shower issue, thank you for alerting us to this. Property Owner
