Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Anita

I just wanted to let you know how much we all loved staying in your beautiful home . Everyone of us agreed that we couldn't have chosen anywhere more suitable to our tastes. My daughter loved all your artefacts and we were all so impressed with that all the house and the surrounding area has to offer . I really wanted to write in the visitors book but unfortunately the cleaners were waiting to get in on our departure day so I didn't get chance.

Thank you so much for making a fabulous house available for others to appreciate.

This house is a great place for a large family get together.

  • 5 of 5

The house worked really well for our family - 10 adults and 2 children. The living area is huge and open plan with kitchen, dining and 2 lounge areas. There are doors from here out into the large garden with seating for everyone. It's obviously a family home with loads of interesting books, (which we all enjoyed) toys, and everything else you would expect. (Although we did have to buy some oven gloves which was a bit annoying) Very useful having a drinks fridge as there wasn't much room in the fridge freezer. Beds were really comfortable, bathrooms ok..

We've had a fab week - Easter egg hunt - games of sardines - exploring and relaxing. Our favourite beach is Polkerris - we were lucky enough to have a perfect beach weather day in April!

Thanks for sharing your house 😊

Modern, clean, lots of open space - wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week over Christmas. We had between 10-12 people staying at any one time including an 18 month old baby. When we first arrived, we were gobsmacked by the house...it had been decorated for Christmas and we were greeted with huge multi-coloured pom poms and fairy lights hanging in the hallway and two Christmas trees in the living/diner. It was a wonderful surprise!

The house was huge and our 18 month old had the time of his life running around and making the most of all that space. A cot and highchair were provided which was very helpful. The master bedroom was enormous and the bed so comfortable. The kitchen had everything you would need, although some feedback...some weighing scales would have been helpful. The kitchen pantry had some essential items which were useful and the fridge was definitely spacious enough to fit food for 12 people. The pantry also has a drinks fridge which freed up space in the main fridge freezer.

Some more feedback...towels were meant to be included but there were none in the rooms so we had to look in the hallway cupboards. We found some but there were only just enough for us, a couple had to use hand towels as bath/shower towels which wasn't ideal but not a massive problem. We also found that the shared bathroom on the first floor flooded as it didn't have a 'lip' on the tray so during a shower the water went everywhere. Ken was really responsive and quickly fixed a broken lock in the house, excellent service considering it was Christmas eve!

I won't hesitate to recommend Avery House to others. This was the first time our whole family had been together in three years - Avery House didn't disappoint in providing us with a truly wonderful place to celebrate Christmas. Thank you Anita & Ken.

Avery House is an interesting modern and comfortable house with plenty of space for our family of 12

  • 4 of 5

Avery House seemed very modern, clean and spacious and the owners had obviously invested in the design and style of the house but possibly at the expense of some practical aspects, like no door to the top bedroom and no opening windows to the master bedroom apart from a door which in the hot weather was a bit of a drawback especially as the cat tried to get in; the kitchen was large and modern but lacked key facilities like enough fridge capacity for 12 people and a draining board; no doors or curtains to the showers so the floors got very wet, the one in the shared bathroom particularly as the shower tray wasn't deep enough and water spilled onto the floor.

However there was plenty of space for the family, adults and children to spread out around the living space without getting on top of each other. We enjoyed the garden and the barbecue and being able to eat outside especially as the weather was so good. A local cat seemed to think it lived there and we had to keep the door shut a lot when we would really have wanted it open in the warm weather as there was no other window along the back to open - plenty of roof lights though over the dining area.

We had a wonderful week and enjoyed the shops and the river in Lostwithiel - a charming place. We had a very good Sunday lunch in the local pub, the Globe Inn. The only place we visited that was any distance was St. Michael's Mount which was well worth the long and very tedious journey. Because of the delays we almost missed the tide and got our feet wet on the causeway but we had a wonderful day - it was the best day of the week weather wise so it was very busy with long queues for ice creams and the boat back to shore. We had a lovely day in Fowey (it was Regatta week), and the ladies went back later in the week to browse in the shops! The Eden Project, the fireworks at Fowey, the beach and Lanhydrock (NT) were also visited. Our party consisted of me and my husband, our 3 children and spouses and 4 grandchildren. It was great to all be together particularly as our daughter and husband live in the US - very special.

Unfortunately there was no photo of the front of the house so it was difficult to find the house, especially on such a steep hill. Parking was bit of an issue especially with 3 cars to accommodate and quite often space was tight, difficult when you are not used to parking on a very steep hill.

The owner was very helpful and answered queries before the holiday very promptly.

Fantastic! Beautiful house in picturesque setting

  • 5 of 5

The house is fantastic - beautifully set out and fabulously decorated. As the house is set out over several floors, there's loads of space so you don't feel like everyone's on top of each other all the time. It's clean and well maintained and great for relaxing in.

The house had everything we could want, from cooking equipment (to go with the fabulous kitchen!) to a wide range of music and DVDs.

We went on lots of walks by the river and around the village - there are lots of cool vintage and antique shops for wandering around, as well as cafes and very friendly pubs - I can highly recommend the pub quiz at the Globe (though we didn't do very well...). We even braved a swim in the sea, which is a short drive away.

Very highly recommended, a brilliant holiday.

Designer chic in gorgeous Cornich village

  • 5 of 5

The owners have done an amazing job to transform this house into the height of designer chic but at the same time making it a comfortable and cozy environment. Two seating areas either side of the open plan kitchen diner and a large BBQ terrace. Kitchen fully equipped as if for a private home not just a holiday let. Great for groups of friends or for families. Beaches are a drive away but there is a great choice - and some lovely gardens too. Sunny garden to enjoy at the house if you cant be bothered to drive anywhere and reasonable amenities in the village (shops, pubs, deli).

Immaculate holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time of our life at Avery House. The house was clean, well maintained and big enough for us as we were a group of 17. Its a modern child friendly holiday home. There were a number of activities such as Jet skiing, Soft play for kids, Go karting, Zoo and Self drive boats in St Ives that we managed to go to. The only attraction we managed to visit was the famous Eden Project. The owner emailed us all the information we needed well before hand and we received excellent customer service upon arrival and during our entire stay. Liked everything about the holiday home. I would recommend this holiday home to anyone with no hesitation.

My only suggestion for the holiday home is a jacuzzi!!! Everything else was perfect.
