About the Owner

My husband and I live in the New Forest where we both work in the Medical profession. We started camping in Cornwall when our children were all small and decided that a cottage was the best way to visit this beautiful coastline in the winter. We bring our dog, walking boots, wet-suits and bikes but spend the first two days relaxing with a glass of wine and the binoculars, - we don't care about the weather, the more wild the better! To come in to the serenity of Hillside is something we never tire of. Our children love it too as the surfing culture has universal appeal, they tell us a Hot Tub is essential and they sign up to whatever we do!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This property is a credit to the owners everything has been well thought out. We lo ed everything about it. The bedding and towels where what you would get in a five star hotel, It"s perfect for two families and you dont feel on top of each other because of the size of the rooms. There was tea, coffee, sugar, milk and a fresh butter cream sandwich in the lovely kitchen diner.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived there was milk in the fridge and a lovely orange drizzle cake waiting for us, after a long drive this was a welcome sight! The house was lovely, clean and well maintained. The hot tub was a real treat! One morning we were treated to a display of wildlife with a Barn Owl hunting, deer running through the field and pheasants running around!

We had a great time.

Lovely cottage, fantastic location and friendly service

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Hillside, four adults, four children and two dogs. Room for all in a well kept and stylish house. The hot tub was brilliant. A short walk to the lovely beach good for surfing and playing. followed by a pint or two at the YHA overlooking the beach. Close to St Merryn and Padstow loads to see and do. We hope to visit again.

Definitely Five Star Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property which is very spacious and well equipped with lovely views across the fields. A real sense that the owner, Katie, and the manager, Ruth, were ready to help us in any way we needed. There was no long list of do's and don'ts on arrival, just a very warm welcome with cake! They let us go in as soon as the cleaning was finished (spotlessly clean) which was a real bonus having driven down early in the morning. We were surprised when we arrived to see that there is a big property next door but found, in the end, we didn't get any noise from it. Hillside is incredibly peaceful (just a little bit of traffic passing by occasionally for the beach, which didn't seem at all invasive, and I'm fussy about traffic noise!). This was our fourth visit to Treyarnon Bay (stayed in a static caravan before - bit of a contrast with Hillside!). Treyarnon is my first choice of beach in Cornwall, and if you want more variety or sand dunes - Constantine is only a short walk away. I would definitely recommend Hillside, it is absolutely beautiful. The only thing to bear in mind the 10 minute walk to the beach along the road. Can't recommend any restaurants or activities in the area because other than a cream tea at Bedruthan Steps (yummy), all we wanted to do was be on Treyarnon beach or relaxing at Hillside. We were a party which stretched in age from 14 to 87. The teenagers appreciated the consistent, working WiFi. Also it was good to have a landline available for any emergencies as there is sparse mobile signal in that area. It's the best house we have ever stayed in.

This lovely cottage has the wow factor!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a credit to the owners everything has been well thought out. We lo ed everything about it. The bedding and towels where what you would get in a five star hotel, It"s perfect for two families and you dont feel on top of each other because of the size of the rooms. There was tea, coffee, sugar, milk and a fresh butter cream sandwich in the lovely kitchen diner. My two tibetan terriers loved the garden, I had to put two towels down in the hall and lounge near patio doors to keep the cream carpet clean, but it was worth it. This lovely house felt home from home. Already planning to come back.Thankyou so much for a perfect base for our holiday in Padstow.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this lovely review, I know you have loved Hillside as much as we do. I appreciate your care, we too take our dog in the winter and are always surprised that Hillside takes as much hard living as it does. It looks smart but is not precious. I do look forward to welcoming you back another time..

Fantastic comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Hillside is a great property for a really relaxing holiday. It's incredibly well equipped for a holiday home and has the most conformance beds. It's well suited to multiple families and there is plenty of space to spread out. The garden is smallish but has a great decking with views over the hills. The newly installed hot tub was a hit with all the family and is large enough for 4 adults to fit in comfortably. Very relaxing after a day's walking. The beach is a 10 min walk away and there are some great walking paths very nearby. I can highly recommend Hillside for a very comfort ale holiday

Location

From the Owner

We were so lucky to find this lovely up market conversion of a simple Cornish Cottage enabling us to winter escape and admire real stormy seas as well as offering surfing appeal and beach for the children. It is relaxing. It has the feeling of space and privacy with lovely views back, front and over fields to the sea. We have made it comfortable and charming. People have said that when they are staying there they don't want to leave to go out, they prefer to enjoy the place with its peace, eat out on the decking overlooking the garden and fields and watching the sun setting over the Bay. We love it and so do the guests. As it is lovely having the dog with us.
