After just arriving back from staying in this wonderful property I can honestly say its the best place we have ever stayed.Everywhere was spotless and so well kept.The house itself is absolutely fantastic especially the Kitchen and the living room.The swimming pool was delightful and now has a wall surrounding it and a gate so it is safe to let your children run around.Bev and Simon the owners were brilliant and so welcoming .The views around the house are to die for.We will definitely be back next year as properties like this are hard to find.

Warm and friendly hosts providing excellent customer service. Nothing out of place...it really does look like this! In fact it looks better. We were speechless when we arrived!

Rainbows End is a hidden gem and there is more than a pot of gold at the end of Rocky Lane.

Would I recommend it? Of course I would! But I'd make sure my holiday was booked in first! Which I already have done!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a property to rent while visiting my Brother who lived locally and found Rainbows End online - as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to stay here!

When we arrived at the property (Myself, my husband and our 2 children age 6 & 4) we were extremely impressed by the location and exterior of Rainbows End.

We were greeted warmly by Bev and Simon who showed us round the house and we were made to made to feel extremely welcome!

Bev had even left a Cornish cream tea for our arrival which was particularly thoughtful after a long drive.

We absolutely loved Rainbows End, the house is immaculate, clean and so cosy.

Bev had thought of everything including books, games and even things for a trip to the beach!

We also went for a dip in the pool on a fresh April morning!

A huge thank you to Bev and Simon.

We thoroughly recommend Rainbows End, and have booked to stay again next year- can't wait!!

Superb accommodation in a knock out location!!!

  • 5 of 5

What can we say???

Rainbowsendhouse was certainly that..... We had found our pot of gold!!!!

Nestled in some of Cornwalls most glorious scenery, this accomadation was superb! Immaculately clean throughout!!!

The actual house merits a 5star rating, beautifully presented, luxurious without at all being pretentious .

We met Bev on arrival who had laid on some of the most gorgeous local baked scones , cream, jam and tea!!!

Nothing was too much trouble for her, she really made us feel welcome and gave us plenty of local information, for our week in Cornwall.

What an added bonus was the pool!!! Fun for all , including little ones and grandma too!!

The location was great , only a 15 min drive to all local amenities and spots of interest!!

A must see is St Michaels Mount 10 mins away in Morizion

Rick Steins restaurant in nearby Porthleven

Praa Sands the closest beach beautiful sands only 10 mins away.

A little further a field , St ives a must!!!

The Mannick outdoor Theatre in Porthmanor, fantastic day out for all the family, the cove there, spectacular!!!!!!! 40 mins drive!!

We would recommend this property 110%!!!! We'll done Bev!!

Beautiful house and wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for more from Rainbows end house during out week stay in June. House is very clean, comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated with everything you might need and more for your holiday. Lovely welcome basket on arrival and really helpful, friendly owners Bev and Simon who recommended lots of local activities and amenities.

Very quiet, rural location with beautiful views yet only a short 10/15 minute drive to supermarkets and also beautiful beaches such as Praa sands.

We would highly recommend Rainbows End to others and will definitely be looking to book again in the future. Many Thanks for making our holiday so memorable :-)

lovely holiday home in gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Rainbows End. The house and Cottage were lovely -very clean and well equipped. The grounds and location are beautiful. We loved our welcome hamper which included scones, jam and clotted cream! Bev and Simon were very friendly and welcoming and gave good advice on places to visit. The pool was cleaned every morning which was great. We visited Praa Sands, St Michaels Mount, Godolphin National Trust Centre ( walked to this), Perranporth, St Ives and the Penrose Estate - all were lovely. We would love to return another year-almost scared to say how lovely it is incase it becomes too booked up!

Thanks for a lovely holiday.
