“Lovely house”
Reviewed June 8, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We enjoyed a week staying at Grassmead in May. The accomodation was as described.

The house is spacious and comfortable. There are 2 large bedrooms and one smallish one with bunk beds.

There is room for 2 cars outside. There is a garden behind the property and a patio with a BBQ area. The garden is not fenced off so young children can wander off.

The property is very close to the beach but if you have young children walking probably won't be an option. The road down to the beach is very steep and has no pavement. You can wander down through fields but that it just as steep.

The beach is lovely, massive, sandy with a clear blue sea. there are cafes nearby for icecreams and sandwiches and a fantastic beach restaurant.

A couple of observations about the property, the door handles are about 4 feet off the ground, so our son, who is 3.5 could not open closed doors. The doors to the toilet open inwards and neiher or the rooms are large so if you have child toilet seats and steps it is a fight to get in and out.

The house itself is very boxy looking from outside, almost art deco but that does not really matter unless you specifically want a chocolate box cottage with a thatched roof etc. The views of the beach and the coast are stunning especially from the master bedroom.

“New Year 2011”
Reviewed February 13, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Stayed here for a three day New Year's break. My oldest friend, who was over from Australia and posted the last review, stayed in Grasscroft, which is a self contained annexe to Grassmead.
Couldn't fault the property, great location for the village, with the First and Last pub just down the road and Sennen Cove.
Both properties are ideal for a relaxing chill out break for two, or for a family / group holiday, with the annexe ideal for elderly / disabled guests.
The facilities provided by Jan and Geoff are ideal, should the weather be unkind to guests. They have provided games, books, videos, wi fi etc. and in the conservatory, a bar football table.
We had such a great time over New Year's we have just come back from another three night break, staying in Grasscroft, as Jan and Geoff were staying in the house for two weeks.
On Sunday night we got to meet them, as they invited us round for a meal and too much wine.
They are a really lovely couple, who obiously care about the enjoyment of people who book their properties.
Looking forward to another break here soon

“Excellent place, perfect for visiting Sennen.”
Reviewed February 1, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

We spend a week here over New years, friends rented the other section of the building. The place is very well equipped, the views outstanding, and all comforts necessary for a great holiday are in place. It is easy to get to the beach from here, (all downhill!) There is ample walking in the area, great cliff climbing, and perfect surfing. It's also convenient for the shop, post office and chip shop, as well as my favourite pub in the UK, "The First and last." Highly recommended!
