LAST MINUTE DEAL -Christmas week - £1195 Sleeps 12, 6 Bathrooms, Porthcothan Bay

Overview

Property

Updated: 26-Nov-2016
House near Porthcothan Bay, Padstow, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location,15 Min Walk To Beach & Local Pub

Combining coast and countryside, Greenacres is an excellent venue for large families or groups seeking coastal pursuits, surfing and relaxation. Set back from the Atlantic coast road in the hamlet of Treburrick between Padstow (4 miles) and Newquay (9 miles) with far reaching views over mellow countryside and towards the sea. Greenacres has recently been updated and redecorated throughout (winter 16) and caters for groups with a spacious and well-appointed interior centring on practicality, comfort and style. A substantial five bedroom house with a private and enclosed garden and a whopping six bathrooms, including four en-suite shower rooms, a ground floor bathroom and a walk-in shower room. It is positioned off the beaten track yet three-quarters of a mile from the coastal footpath and dog-friendly beach at Porthcothan Bay. One of the 'Seven Bays for Seven Days' , Porthcothan is a white sand beach sheltered from the Atlantic breeze by craggy headlands and backed by grassy dunes. Good for surfing( Waves Surf School operates all along this stretch of North Cornwall’s coastline) and a favourite among families with lifeguard patrol during the peak summer months and shallow rock pools which fascinate children with their window into marine life. There is a rather dated PH at Porthcthan bay which offers a great view of the bay, perfect for a “Sun downer” at the end of a day on the beach.

Nearby at Watergate Bay are the renowned Extreme Academy Water sports school and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen. The Beautiful harbour town of Padstow is within a 5 minute drive and has many great restaurants (including Rick Stein & Paul Ainsworth), fishing trips, Sea Life Safari's, The National Lobster Hatchery, The Camel Trail (beautiful & safe cycle ride along the camel estuary),speed boat rides ,great local gift & clothes shops and frequent ferry service to Rock. Bedruthan Steps is within a 2 minute drive and offers a lovely National Trust Tea Room and the local hotel has a fantastic spa with many beauty & relaxation treatments available. Great local PH the Cornish Arms (Rick Steins) is at St Merryn. The Eden Project, Bodmin Moor and many seaside towns and beaches are all within a short drive. Well positioned for a number of Golf Clubs.

A welcoming residence for families to come together after fun days out, Standing detached along a quiet road with only a handful of other properties, it occupies a peaceful setting for a truly relaxing break. The grand entrance door opens onto a large hall/reception room and level ground floor accommodation. To the rear is a well fitted kitchen, utility room and conservatory (which most guests will utilise as a dining area) with large sliding doors to the rear garden. Safe for children and pets, the garden is enclosed and offers a high degree of privacy, garden furniture and distant sea views. There is a double bedroom on the ground floor with access to the ground floor bathroom and separate shower room, which would suit guests with limited mobility. A sitting room and a TV/playroom with wireless broadband, DVD, video, books and games, provides ample space for children and grandparents seeking some quiet time. Located on the first floor are four en-suite bedrooms including two double bedrooms with views over the front aspect towards rolling countryside and two twin bedrooms with views over the rear garden towards the sea. There is off road parking for four cars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have recently returned from a weekend trip to Greenacres as a group of friends for a birthday celebration. Such a fantastic weekend! The house was clean, warm, spacious and generally lovely! Treburrick itself was very pretty and we had a lovely evening walk to a welcoming pub nearby and porthcothan bay was beautiful. Very close to watergate bay which was great for surfing and also the camel trail to Padstow. Jayne was a brilliant host and very helpful with any questions we had. Definitely recommend!!

We were a group of 9 guys who wanted to spend a few days golfing & eating. Greenacres was the perfect venue, close to some great golf courses , pubs & restaurants.

The house is well equipped ,6 Shower rooms, 2 Sitting rooms(2 TV's), and a great eating area - lots of space to allow us all to chill out.We all had a fantastic time, the house was clean, warm and very comfortable.

3rd Visit for a big birthday!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to Greenacres - 4 couples to celebrate a significant birthday - and were once again delighted with our stay. Well equipped kitchen for our celebration meal, warm and very clean throughout. Enjoyed lots of coastal walks - weather was great for that time of year. One of our party works in the hotel trade - and was very impressed! Until the next time.

Greenacres, Porthcothan

  • 4 of 5

Greenacres is a well proportioned property having the advantage of ensuite bathrooms in nearly all rooms and a couple of ground floor lounges. The kitchen is well stocked, the dining room is OK but is rather narrow. The drying room and utility room are very useful and well sized. Outside the parking is ample and the rear garden adequate although could do with a proper barbecue and not just a portable "throw away" which would only suit a couple of people, to advertise the property as having a barbecue is wrong.

Overall its a decent house which could do with some TLC.

Locally the beaches are good and the coastal path spectacular. The local pub is in a time warp and not worth making the effort.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Like all holiday home owners, I put my faith in the housekeeping/maintenance team.During my recent visit it became apparent that they had not maintained the house to the normal high standards. It is very helpful to receive feed back at the start of a stay as this allows me to action anything immediately. I have now taken on a new HK company that come highly recommended. I have recently spent a week at the house overseeing some general maintenance and a full decoration is now in process.

A great holiday home for an extended family.

  • 4 of 5

As regular visitors to North Cornwall for over 30 years, we were looking for a holiday home for the whole family to celebratre my 70th birthday in July. With seven adults, two small children and a baby we needed lots of space and a safe garden and Greenways fitted the bill perfectly. With five large bedrooms, most with en-suite facilities, two lounges (one equipped as a games/play room) a vast hallway, large kitchen, a dining area in the conservatory and an enclosed garden we couldn't have asked for more.

The house is well-equipped and everything worked more or less OK, although the dishwasher was so inefficient that we eventually resorted to washing-up by hand. The dining chairs were a little flimsy and showed signs of coming apart at the joints - perhaps the application of a strong glue might solve the problem. As the mobile 'phone reception is poor to non-existent in this area we appreciated the wi-fi.

Our only gripe is that the bedroom windows are fitted with venetian blinds that do not sufficiently block out the early morning light with the consequence that we were all waking far too early. Not what you want on holiday, especially with small children in the house who would otherwise have slept much longer!

The location worked very well for us being mid-way between Newquay and Padstow and nearby Porthcothan Beach is delightful. Sadly, we never found time to visit Old Macdonalds Farm, which is just a short walk away, but we did make return visits after very many years to Lappa Valley Railway and Dairyland. Greatly enjoyed by both the kiddies and the big kids!

All in all a great holiday thanks in no small measure to Greenways.

A special pre Christmas break

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a little respite before the Festive Season and found it here in Greeacres, what a delightful place, it's so close to porthcothan bay with its wonderful scenery and walks over the headland, the house was very spacious and immaculately clean, the kitchen had every utensil you wanted and to fall exhausted into bed at the end of the day was made all the better by the crisp linen sheets, I came home fully refreshed and ready to face christmas , looking to book during the summer, fully recommend it

Even at my age, I still enjoy the body boarding and my family think its the best holiday ever,maybe its the simplicity that children love,they never seem to get bored,which is a real plus.I hope that my future Grand children and guests will enjoy this house for many years to come.
