Lovely couple, me and my girlfriend felt really welcome on our first holiday away together. My car broke down and they were very helpful and made sure we were okay whilst making sure the rooms were ready for the next people. Ideal for a break away. The rooms were tidy and clean. Fully functioning kitchen space which is also easy... More

This has been my second time at Bassets Acre and I wouldn’t look for any other self catering accommodation in Cornwall. As other reviewers have said, the owners Pam and Richard are among the friendliest hosts you’ll meet anywhere – nothing is too much trouble for them – and the accommodation/location are perfect for families. The big garden at the... More

Self catering holiday apartment - enjoyed our stay - short walk to beach and enjoyed pool, spa, gardens, BBQ and games room - thanks. The apartment is compact and has everything needed for a comfortable stay. Electric meter could need feeding if weather cold.

We've just got back from a delightful stay in Apartment 7 (Squirrels View), which was clean and well equipped for cooking. The overall experience was very positive, with plenty of small touches all around the place e.g. (in no particular order): games room, books and dvd's to borrow, gorgeous gardens, covered pool etc. Portreath is a lovely, uncrowded bay, with...

Great facilities - pool was ideal for young children. Hot tub also popular. Has strong wifi. Bedrooms were a bit small in apartment 7. Well kept grounds and a genuine 10 minutes walk to the beach, pubs and shops. Tescos only 10 minute drive. Really enjoyed ourselves.

We stayed in the Badgers Watch apartment but, unfortunately, despite some late nights on the balcony, failed to see any wildlife. The apartments are very clean and beautifully furnished. The welcome is warm and friendly and the pool is great on cloudy days when no-one is brave enough to face the chilly Cornish sea. The gardens are beautiful and a... More

Thank you for your pleasant review , Unfortunately we dont traine the wildlife or keep them tethered to trees ,it takes time and patience to be rewarded by the presence of Badgers ,Foxes, etc, l am glad you loved the gardens it makes the hard work worthwhile , The apartment is more than adequate for two adults and two children...
