“Wonderful location, holiday let in need of tlc”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Absolutely wonderful spot, great holiday location, couldn't get any nearer to the beach, lovely view, owners helpful. On the negative side found the accommodation overlooked and in need of desperate renovation and updating, could not close the kitchen curtains, too shrunk in the wash and would suggest a curtain or net across the door as the other let could see straight in through the glass (we had a child staring in from the other accommodation). Damp in need of treatment and a tidy up outside so that the master bedroom looks onto no rubbish would be welcome. Laminate the cooker directions please. A nice big sign for the accommodation when you get to the end of the road would be great as it was hard to see the current piece of paper. Could be an outstanding holiday let, loved watching the sea come in every night from the lounge, lovely memories.

“We didn't want to leave it was so nice.”
Reviewed May 10, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The house was really lovely and the location was perfect for our two boys aged 10 & 11. They spent hours playing on the beach together. We didn't want to go home again. I think we'll being staying here again.

“AMAZING! Would definitely stay again!”
Reviewed April 24, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I would highly recommend this holiday home to stay in for many reasons and I would definitely come back again!
The house is set in a beautiful location.
The views from the lounge window are truly superb and is lovely to sit and eat dinner whilst looking at the sea.
There is a short path just outside the house which leads straight to the beach, it's easy and convenient, and within minutes you're at one of Cornwall's nicest beaches.
It is also very easy to drive into a few towns around portreath to check out the interesting and quirky Cornwall way of life.
The house itself was amazing and I most defiantly can not fault it in anyway.
It is large enough for a family but also cosy enough for just a couple, it's spacious, light and fully equip for everything you need.
It was extremely clean and tidy.
The whole area around the house is very quiet and peaceful making me feel like I could be anywhere in the world.
I had such a lovely stay here, I can't recommend it enough.
Thankyou for making my holiday perfect and I can't wait to come back!

“Lovely place and lovely people”
Reviewed April 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed with a family including teenager down to 5 years old. House really well appointed and idyllic location overlooking sandy cove. Ideal for pottering about on beach and also for day trips to St Ives and Newquay. House owners liveon attached property and were extremely helpful and welcoming. Portreath lacks a really good gastro pub but plenty in near by villages.
Highly recommended
