Lovely spacious comfortable house in really good location

  • 5 of 5

Really loved the house. Very spacious and so, even though there were 7 of us it never felt cramped. Loved big open kitchen with lovely big table so plenty of room for us all to sit round. Just a couple of very nit picky things which I wasn't even sure about mentioning- only two dishwasher tablets provided. Maybe better not to provide any rather than 2! And could have done with some hand soap in toilets/bathrooms. Maybe mention in your information pack where the recycling bags are located as we spent ages trying to find them before finding them outside. As I say really small things and we had such a lovely weekend. None of us wanted to leave. Fantastic location for the beaches and if weather had been better or it had been a warmer time of year this would have had been even more of a selling point. Already talking about coming back next year.

Fabulous - even though it was January!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a short break in Cornwall when we had visitors from overseas and were delighted to find this property as it was perfect in size and position plus we were able to book for a number of days rather than a whole week.

The owner was extremely helpful on all levels, and we enjoyed a trouble-free holiday in this lovely spacious, well-equipped home from home which we didn't want to leave.

Thank you Tina!

The Family Break

  • 5 of 5

What a marvellous property - we would definitely recommend. A high standard of accommodation, beautifully furnished, well equipped, with attention to detail,spacious and spotlessly clean. Fantastic, well equipped kitchen, with a spectacular main bedroom and the added bonus of having 2 lounges - one for the adults, one for the children. A child safe, large wrap-around hedged garden (the boys enjoyed picking apples). Within easy reach of the beach and coastal path and a 10 minute drive to Padstow. With the addition of fishing nets, body boards, windbreak for the beach on good days and lots of books, games, jigsaws and videos on bad days.

Make up of party - Grandparents with 2 grandchildren (9 and 10), son and partner with 2 boys of 5, and twin boys of 11 weeks. We had a ball!

As a child we spent our holidays in Padstow and hadn't been back in decades. We need a longer stay next time!!

The pictures on the website do not reflect the property's ambience.

Fabulous property!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week with family including 2 babies! So, so impressed from the moment we opened the front door....the photos on this website simply don't do it justice! The kitchen/dining room was huge and perfect for our large family. The lounge was wonderful with a large to and comfy sofas, perfect for the men of the family to watch the football on! The kitchen was well equipped and the additional utility room was as large as some kitchens we've had use of! Plenty of storage everywhere and a wonderful garden (which unfortunately, we didn't use much as the weather was quite wet during our stay.

The bedrooms were lovely and the master bedroom was simply stunning. As a family, we've always booked a large house in Cornwall every year....this one is simply the best and without doubt we will be returning. Highly recommended.
