We have had a fab week, thank you. We explored Cornwall, fishing the river, or walking along the river. Beautiful places to visit.

Plus, Mylor Boat Hire is very helpful if you want to hire a boat.

Thank you, calm, quiet and a refreshed week had by all.

At Curlew for a second time, like before everything was perfect.

Such a beautiful location in a well-equipped lovely house.

Enjoyed some time on the river as well as a few outings.

As always The Heron Inn is excellent and highly recommended.
