Mark's place is a great place to get away from it all. There is pretty much everything you need in the container and the space is really well thought out. While there I walked along the South west coastal path which you can pick up about a 10minute walk away. All of Mark's infor…

We had a fantastic trip away. Mark has really thought of everything, the container was warm and cosy even in strong winds .The photos really don't do the views justice, great host, space and location. Looking forward to returning.

Response from Mark:
Hi Kas, the container has over 50mm of insulation, which is a huge amount for such a small space. It was unfortunate the days you guys stayed turned out to be some of the coldest we've had in Cornwall in a number of winters. Since your stay I've put a small gas heater in which is an insurance policy against the cold and keeps it toasty even when the weather outside isn't. I think a holiday cottage may be more suitable to youre needs in future. Regards Mark
