The Observatory, for two nature lovers overlooks a garden of wild flowers and Mounts Bay.  The rustic Cottage witnesses sunsets of unbelievable beauty, is spacious and sleeps 4. It is a place where dreams are made.  Halzephron House.  “The Views Are To Live And Die For.” This was quite a statement by a literary visitor, and his friends (AA Milne, JM Barrie, et al). Few would argue with them. Halzephron looks over Mount’s Bay, and is crossed by the coastal footpath. The rooms (sleeps 12) are described as contemporary, quirky and arty. The breakfasts are foodie-specials.
