David and Susan's little gem cottage was fantastic in every sense, clean, warm, comfortable and well equipped. The location could not have been better just 5 minutes out of Falmouth and overlooking a fantastic beach and with free use of the leisure centre with indoor pool, sauna and tennis courts, it made for a very enjoyable 4 day break.

We enjoyed our time at Little Gem which fulfilled our expectations. It was a real 'home from home' experience with a high standards throughout. The location was ideal, with the beach and coastal path nearby. Also, there were plenty of interesting places to visit a short distance away. Overall we had a great holiday!
