Beautiful place even in January and a great time to go to Cornwall without the crowds. I enjoyed the freedom to get on with my allocated tasks at times to suit me ( and the weather! )

Though it is a long way to go, it is well worth the trip. The hostel is well organised and the location wonderful.

This is a great place to do a caretaker week. If you do not know this part of England it is well worth volunteering for this site. However, if you are not very good with climbing stairs then be warned there are several flights of stairs here. The Manager of this site is lovely and helpful and recommended several places to visit that I did not exsited.
