I have had a link with Cornwall for 35 years and welcome you to Dougal's Cottage in the beautiful unspoilt coastal village of Pendeen. I love being near the sea and enjoy long walks with my dogs. I have two grown up children and one eight year old grandson and another grandchild due in November .I'm interested in History , Old Masters and many things which include Antiques and Art , Cooking, Theatre and Film as well as Horseriding and Swimming. I am fortunate to have done much travelling but being older now I prefer to holiday in England or European Cities. I have been in the hospitality business for fifteen years and have owned and operated a farmhouse bed and breakfast business and two holiday cottages in North Cornwall which were all sold in March 2016. I hope you might like to stay at Dougal's Cottage and enjoy this lovely part of Cornwall.
