I bought this book as I used to holiday in Cornwall as a child, my son now lives in mid Cornwall and my family come from Cornwall. It is fascinating to read how the area was in times past, what attractions were of interest and available and what roads were in use.
The book arrived in good condition and as stated online.
Very pleased with purchase.
I have bought this toast rack as a gift and it is just as described online and true to the photographs. I have cleaned it up and it is looking amazing. It was packaged well with another item I bought at the same time, and arrived in good time.
Another great buy from Kernow Furniture. I look at the website weekly for more super gifts and items of interest.
Awesome item and great service once again - thank you.
Very pleased with my stunning mirror, and although it is very very fragile it arrived in perfect condition.
The two items are very pleasing and interesting, subtle colours and a good size. They arrived faultlessly packed and in super quick time. Thankyou Bonnie and Co !
