The location was good, near to the river Gannel which lead to Crantock Beach and not too far from town. The rooms were spacious including the bedrooms, On arrival the accommodation was very clean and maintained, Parking was ok though not outside the house but a 100 metres away, would book with Newquay Holiday Rentals again as they were very helpful and friendly.
having visited previously at the New Year we were looking forward to our return but was a bit concerned over a review thinking may have gone down hill!
however on arrival we were very pleased that the place was as clean as before and the garage still empty to park up if we had too. improvements had also taken place after the winter.
As before we had our dog with us so location was fantastic for the Gannel.
in my opinion the previous review was a little unfair and we had no problem with the description and would stay again, very accommodating for 5 of us.
I have only just got round to writing this review after being back home now for a week or so due to business commitments.
The property is extremely poorly equipped it is supposed to accommodate 6 people but there are only 2 very uncomfortable 2 seater settles in the lounge and one other chair.
The dining table in the kitchen is realistically onlu for 4 people and there are only 4 chairs arounfpd the table granted there is an additional wooden chair that you might find in the garden and a high stool totally inadequate.
The kitchen is not well equipped no chopping boards mismatch cuttlery and cups and an oven that is held together with sticky tape terrible.
The beds well in the Master that is the only one I slept on is very uncomfortable springs going off when you lie down I did,not sleep at all well all week.
Now for the biggest misrepresentation there is only ONE Bathroom and a downstairs loo,
Not sure if the 2nd Bathroom you are intended to have a bath in the sink !,, For 6 people just not good enough.
Saying it is a Family Friendly Condo not for me it is a Terraced House in a iffy neighbourhood.
Does not have off road parking in fact you would be very lucky to find anywhere to park within 100 yards and the locals do not like it as it is surrounded by Private Housing.
The Gannel is close to walk to the only decent thing I can say about this very unhappy holiday.
Stayed at ‘‘this property for a few days over new year with family & 2 large dogs. The property was spacious & roomy had everything we needed, excellent location near the river Gannel and within walking distance of Newquay centre. Would definitely stay here again.
We had a great holiday at the Old Barn Cottage, it was very convenient for Newquay town and 5 of us including a dog stayed comfortably. On arrival the place was clean and tidy. Free WiFi was good too. With a very short walk you can visit the river Gunnel. We enjoyed our week and will be returning.
Wonderful stay in lovely spacious clean house large kitchen with nice new work tops comfortable beds and great garden with nice furniture, highly recommended to book.
