Bonny Alva is an exceptional property and the owners have thought of everything from a fully stocked kitchen down to spare dog bowls and treats. The owners had even put up a real Christmas tree for us as we were there for Christmas day, such a lovely touch. We were a party of 6 and the rooms are all so well laid out and spacious that we didn't once feel on top of each other. The views from the balconies are fantastic and there are a number of lovely walks from the doorstep. St Austell is just around the corner and Truro (great for shopping) about 25 mins away. Our only criticism (and it in no way detracted from our enjoyment) was the size of the shower trays....they are tiny for the size of the ensuites! Thank you for a wonderful stay, we hope to return in the future.
