“Absolutely amazing...”

We had a truly amazing time here. We were a party of 8 and it was just perfect. The bedrooms were all of a great size, the kitchen was extremely well equipped for those who are the chefs amongst us and the facilities on offer and the location of this property were just right.
We did however miss the firepit (as pictured in previous property pictures) however had we of known, we would have happily squeezed our own in the car.
The hot tub was fantastic as was the BBQ area.
We holiday in Cornwall every year as part of our yearly surf trip and this is a highly recommended property with close access to Fistral & the town centre with other surf locations.
Great wee place, I'd definitely book here again.
Can't wait to come here again.
Thank you for having us.

Kind Regards
Donna and Surf Crew

Thanks for your lovely review Donna. Extremely glad that you enjoyed your holiday. Sorry about the fire pit. It did not seat many people and it became temporamental so we decided to get a much larger table. Hopefully see you next year.

Thank,

Sarah

“The beautiful house with a beautiful view.”

Wow, this stunning 6 bed room house is amazing. In our party we has a 7, 16,18,19, upto 68 year old who all truly loved the house. There is plenty of room for everyone. The outside table and chairs are fantastic to sit chatting as the sea comes in or out. You are minute's away from Newquay town (in a car). At night I would have a bath in the spa bath, then sit outside on the balcony, it's so quiet. We all loved the house, the view and the holiday. We would definitely recommend this house. One very happy customer!

“Spacious stunning Holiday Home!”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

We were an extended family of 10 in total (all adults). The house was amazing with plenty of space for everyone. The lounge was large to accommodate us all and the kitchen was modern, smart and spacious. All the bedrooms were a good size and the beds were extremely comfortable. The master bedroom and en-suite on the top floor were huge with a lovely balcony overlooking the Gannel. The hot tub in the back garden was a welcome extra for relaxing, especially after long walks along the beaches and cliffs closeby. The large outside table at the front of the house was especially nice for eating breakfast and evening meals when the weather permitted as the view of the Gannel was so picturesque. We did venture to St Ives for a day trip, but with the lovely beaches so close to home we didn't have to go far. All in all it was a nice family holiday!

“An amazing house in a stunning location”

My family and I stayed in this house over Easter week and we had a fantastic holiday. The house is furnished to a very high standard, spotlessly clean with excellent facilities. The bedrooms were all really comfortable. The house has plenty of space for a large family and the views over the Gannel Estuary are stunning. It's a peaceful location with the beach on the doorstep and the town and harbour within walking distance. We loved the balconies at the front where you can sit with a glass of wine and watch the tide come in. The back garden is a great space and the hot tub is the perfect treat!
When the tide's out there's a lovely walk down the estuary and over to Crantock village which has lovely tea rooms and thatched pubs.
You can go horse riding down the estuary too, which is great.
We did a bit of sight seeing around Cornwall and drove to Padstow, Port Isaac and St Ives and the house is in a really easy location to be able to do that. we would definitely recommend this place.

“Nice place but not worth the money”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Arrived to find a significant number of instructions about the do's and dont's in the property stuck up around the house. Concern was that the property wasn't in a good order when we arrived. Downstairs smelt of damp and couldn't sleep in those rooms. Kitchen wasn't cleaned to a standard one would expect, back garden needs some tlc. Paid the same for 1 week in a villa in the south of France so this place was definately not worth the price by a long way.

There are Dos and Donts in the property. The dos and donuts refer to where to put the rubbish for collection and how to use the hot tub (for example don't go in the tub with sand on your body). There is no damp downstairs and I can confirm that the guest who wrote this emailed me during the week to say that they were having a great time and that the house was lovely so I have no idea why they decided to write the review that they did.
We spend a considerable amount of money on the property each year to make sure that it is extremely well maintained. We have just changed all the flooring throughout the house to make sure that there are no marks and stains and we employ somebody to paint the house each year. We have cleaners in to clean the property and if there was a problem with how it had been cleaned then we should have been made aware so that we could send the cleaners back around. We have never received a complaint about our cleaners.
With regards to the pricing the property is priced in accordance with other properties that sleep the same amount of people and are in such a lovely location. It is not fair to compare the price of the house to one in France!
Thanks for reading this.

“Fantastic House Fantastic Location”

We stayed at the house with our extended family, ages ranging from 14 to 83. The house is excellent with quality furnishings and fittings. It was idea for our family since it was in walking distance from the town and two world class beaches. Fistral beach is perfect for surfing and it also has a nice bar with plenty of options for hot food. If you fancy something different try walking down the estuary at low tide, you will come to a lovey beach which has got to be one of the best in England. We also had a lovely meal in a large bar/ restaurant at Pentire head which again was it walking distance, if you don't mind a bit off a stroll.
All in all we had a great week with perfect weather. The house is lovely with fantastic views and facilities such as two BBQ's (front / back) and a hot tub. I would highly recommend it for a family holiday.
