Seb was a fab host, from the communication to the local tips to the little welcome gifts. We are reluctant to recommend this - but only because we want to keep this a hidden gem - so it is available for us to re book next time we are in Cornwall 😄”

"Highly recommended! Piggy Whidden is very charming, comfortable and well equipped. Luxurious touches made the stay extra special. There’s a sunny garden and a log burner for cooler evenings. The beach is a ‘surfer beach’ so has a nice mix of families, surfers, kayakers - and a good beach bar too! The walk to and from the cottage is short but very steep. Stunning coastal path walks ato explore from the cottage on foot. We also drove to Padstow for the inevitable Rick Stein experience and an excellent Sea Safari where we saw dolphins up close. Very special. We loved our stay and hope to return soon. Thank you Seb and team for your flexibility on our dates and your fast and friendly service."
