Ideally placed to explore local attractions , Excellent views over countryside with peaceful surroundings .
The Spires is a very modern, well equipped, holiday accommodation with everything you could need, with some very nice personal touches.
We would definitely recommend !
We booked a weeks stay in the spiers retreat to explore cornwall. It couldn't be better situated; away from the hustle and bustle but that same hustle and bustle is only 10 minutes away. A garage at the top of the road for fuel and anything you need. On the way to the apartment is a lovely waitrose which is home to a local produce store.
On arrival we got the keys to the door and went in. The apartment is beautifully designed and decorated. You can see for miles over the cabbage field and across to Truro and beyond.
The apartment has absolutely everything you could need, they have forgot nothing. The main lounge and kitchen area is lght and roomy and th views are stunning, the bathroom is so fancy with its sparkly tiles and the bedroom is equally lovely.
During our stay we went to the gardens of heligan, the eden project, sennen cove, kynance cove, lands end, healeys cyder farm, goonhilly earth station, cape cornwall and had a day in the scilly isles. The only place that was more than 30 minutes drive was lands end.
On arrival there was so much choice of tea and coffee as well as a box of fudge and cream teas in the fridge. They also have the biggest selection of local leaflets and information that i have ever seen, very useful. On the second day we bumped into Andrew, the owner. He was friendly and welcoming and completely approachable, but w didn't need anything.
Every review says that the bed was amazing and I have no doubt that it is but for someone who can slip a disc while sitting down it was a bit too soft, I got used to it and had a very good sleep.
If I was to have one problem it would be the lack of wall between the bathroom and the rest of the apartment. Yes, I know you are staying with someone you are very close to but I don't really want to hear everything they do in the bathroom. They have tried to resolve this by fitting a sliding door which is a welcome addition.
I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone. Its great value for money and a terrific little hideaway.
We cannot express enough just how perfect this apartment is. Truly stunning views. Apartment stylish, comfortable with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break away. Thank you for the added extras, scones were delicious, wine very much appreciated. Thank you Steph and Andrew, we will be back.
We stayed 4 nights in Spires, which was absolute perfection and the ideal base for exploring Cornwall.
Lots of little extras made our stay so comfortable and welcoming...from the cream tea, the wine, the biscuits and fudge...to the sumptuous bedding, fluffy towels, robes and wonderful lighting throughout.
The views are outstanding and the balcony the ideal place to just sit and chill watching the sun set.
All rooms are fully equipped with everything you could wish for and you may even by lucky enough to have a visit from next doors cat (yes we are cat lovers!)
I have many beautiful photographs I would love to share on Trip Advisor of Spires but it does not offer the option of uploading them, so please contact me if you would like to view them.
Sadly we did not get to meet the owners but all contact details were left, should we need anything, and I think we were just left to enjoy our holiday in privacy.
We highly recommend Spires and would certainly return again,
Good location for touring Cornwall. Fantastic place to stay very well equipped with everything you could need. Stephanie&Andrew a great couple who go out of their way to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.
The property is situated just a few miles to the south of Truro, close to the Fal estuary and its many beautiful creeks. It has National Trust properties of Trelissick and Glendurgan close by and the beautiful north and south coasts of Cornwall are easily reachable.
Arrival at Spires was plain sailing and our expectations from the pictures were more than met, it had the real wow factor. Spires is superbly equipped and furnished with all that is required for a very comfortable stay. The weather during the week wasn't great, but what a difference it made to have such a fabulous place to come back to.
Nice touches were the welcome pack, basic provisions, robes, beach towels, super comfortable bed and quality bedding.
We look forward to going back again some
This studio is exactly like in the photos. It is perfectly presented and has everything you need. The views over the fields are lovely and the location is great for accessing the National Trust and other tourist destinations around the area.
The bed is huge and very comfy. The bathroom is very glam. Check in and out is easy with the key lock box.
