“30th birthday”
Reviewed June 14, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Booked with my family for my 30th birthday for a week in Newquay. Great location for the zoo, indoor pool and adventure area (all 5 min walk)tolcarne beach is approx 10 min walk, newquay town beach is approx 30 min walk and fistral is 40min walk(or you can drive to all within 5mins). The weather wasn't great on our stay but had board games in the house to keep us entertained. One bedroom downstairs with bathroom next door and 2 bedrooms upstairs with bathroom to share. Pete the home owner very friendly and helpful during and after our stay (as I forgot some clothes and he posted them back to me the next day)

“Swallowtails”
Reviewed October 9, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Just returned from a lovely week at Swallowtails. The location is perfect giving easy access to local shops and beach which is only a ten minute walk.
The accommodation is spacious and well maintained with ample parking for cars.
Very highly recommended for a large family or group of adults.

thank you for taking time to write a review. We agree Swallowtails is a lovely large home with big gardens. Pete the owner does go out of his way to make everyone welcome and always likes to make improvements each year.

“Do not stay - not a holiday home!”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

On our arrival we were met by the owner, who advised that he would be returning every day during our holiday to collect a trailer out of the garage that he needed for work. Although it states that there is parking for several cars, the owner keeps both a car and a caravan on the drive so we were then advised exactly where to park the car so that he could gain access to the garage. This is not our idea of a holiday home, and we were very upset that he had put us in a position where we had to call Newquay holiday rentals to complain . Although he agreed to return to remove the vehicles we felt uneasy that he could return to the property unannounced for other items that he may need out of his garage. We felt that upset and uneasy and awkward about the situation that we felt we could not stay in the property. The owner kindly agreed to refund us part of our money. It has now been 2 months and both the owners and Newquay holiday rentals have ignored us. Very disappointed, would definitely not recommend the property or Newquay Holiday Rentals.

Thank you for the review. We will respond to each point as we go along.
Re - parking. Yes there is parking for 10/12 cars if necessary. There was a small touring caravan in the corner away from the house along with an used car belonging to the owner. this being said it still left parking spaces for another 10 vehicles. The owner did offer to remove both caravan and car the same day. He did request to pop back during the week to enter his garage only to pick up gardening tools. The issues mentioned have not been raised in the previous years of renting and most of our guests are happy to chat to the owner about the property and local area, hence why numerous guests return each year.
Even though your booking was for two people only and one vehicle the owner was very respectful and did offer to move both car and caravan leaving a car park for 12 cars, he then continued to go the extra mile to try and make you happy and offered in this instance not to return to the garage that week.
Newquay Holiday Rentals did have a conversation with you on the phone and did inform you that they felt it inappropriate to refund any money on the day of arrival as your complaint had been dealt with and even though the owner was happy to move vehicles and not visit his own property you still wanted to leave.
We appreciate you had reasons wishing to leave but in our opinion as you did not stay at the property and the owner did everything he could to please it is a very unfair review.
we would request future guests to look at other reviews which are nothing but positive hence why the property has returning guests each year.

This is our 3rd stay here and we always enjoy our visits. The owner is very friendly and helpful. He provides bread, tea, coffee, milk, butter, scones, jam, clotted cream and wine - much appreciated! The house is light and airy and very clean. The garden is a great size and secluded. The property is in an ideal location - a 10-15 stroll into the centre of Newquay. Highly recommended!

“Great week at Swallowtails!”

We have just returned from a great week at Swallowtails. The location is excellent for access to Newquay town and the house is spacious and very well equipped. The owner Pete met us on arrival and explained the details of the house. He had also provided tea, milk, bread and a delicious cream tea- which went down a treat! Very thoughtful! The garden was a bonus which the children enjoyed. Ample parking as well- we had three cars and there was plenty of room.

“Lovely stay at Swallowtails”

Just returned from our stay at Swallowtails, there were nine of us in total, this property has a lovely large living, dining and kitchen area which is ideal for a large family. The owner Pete met us on arrival and spent time telling us all we needed to know about the house and location. Lovely touches such as flowers on the the table, wine in the fridge, scones, milk, bread etc.

The house is in a great location near the Zoo, Trenance Gardens and easy walking distance to the town and beach, only negative is that it could do with one more bathroom especially for a large family or group staying.
