“We have recently returned from 2 weeks in this wonderful spacious home of Jane and Matt\'s. The house has everything you need for that perfect holiday, and the garden has some lovely spaces to relax. The location is great to explore a large part of Cornwall, with some lovely beaches close by, and coastal towns and villages of St Ives , Newlyn and Mousehole with their quaint harbours. Search out Cornish pasties and cream teas, a must in this part of the country. We only met Jane ,Matt and Seb for a few minutes when we arrived, and they are a lovely family, arranging the exchange with Jane was so easy, thank you all for a wonderful holiday. Keith,Debbie and Family”

Where is it?
Our home is a two minute drive (or pretty five minute walk by footpath through farmland) to the lovely village of St Buryan, located close to the coast in west Cornwall. The village is clustered around its fourteenth century church, and has all necessary amenities including post office, well stocked shop, petrol station, pub serving meals and a primary school.
West Cornwall is a magical mix of golden beaches and rocky coves, of towering cliffs and lonely moorland, of flower-filled countryside and friendly towns and villages, all of which combine to make this famous 'Granite Kingdom' of the Lands End Peninsula one of the finest holiday destinations in Europe. West Cornwall is also home to a surviving ancient landscape of neolithic chamber tombs, Bronze Age standing stones and stone circles. West Cornwall's magnificent peninsula is enclosed within 36 miles of coastline which runs from St Ives wwith it`s famous artist colony, in the north to Penzance and Mounts Bay in the south to create an island atmosphere without the isolation. And West Cornwall's open secret, the crystal-clear ocean.
The Minack open air theatre, perched above clear turquoise sea, and St Michael’s Mount near Penzance, are only 20 minutes away. There are magnificent beaches at nearby Sennen (with it`s famous surfing beach) and Porthcurno, and for art-lovers, the Tate St Ives, Newlyn Art Gallery and Penlee House Gallery in Penzance are on the doorstep.
