Well equipped house in a lovely area. Close to beautiful beaches.

Really nice property which had a well equipped kitchen. Plenty of space to sit out. Gorgeous views out of the front of the property.

Could however do with a couple of new mattresses to make it a more relaxing experience.

A fantastic place for a family holyday. A tastefully decorated house, with all the needed equipment and facilities. Nice garden too.

A very prompt answer after a fault with the internet connection. We had a wonderful week!

Thank you!

Lovely house in great location. Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with all aspects of our week in this lovely house.

The location was perfect for us as slightly out of town centre on the Pentire peninsula. We were able to park the car at the back of the house and walk everywhere we needed during the week, a bonus when parking spaces at a premium everywhere. Views overlooks the river, with a footpath to river estuary at the end of the road. A pleasant walk at low tide or when the tide was in we were able to take the ferry to Crantock beach. Fistral beach was only 5 minutes away, and within 20 minutes we were in town centre for pubs restaurants, shops and more beaches.

Very impressed with the 3 double bedrooms, lounge with supply of dvds and books. Light spacious kitchen fully equipped with plenty of cooking facilities, but the American fridge with ice machine was the kids highlight. Never been so easy to get them to drink water.

The garden and patio provided a sun trap, and clothes line for drying the beach wear. There was a washing machine but as only staying the week it was not needed.

Owner was very helpful is recommending surf and paddleboard hire options, but there are plenty of hire shops/surf schools everywhere you go in Newquay.

A great, relaxing holiday. Would recommend without hesitation! Thank you.

Clean, comfortable, well equipped and in a great location. Fantastic views from the front rooms.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Cornwell and we were very impressed. The house was in walking distance of Fistral Beach and the surfing schools. Newquay was a lovely 20 minutes walk along the headland path. In Newquay there were many excellent restaurants and pubs serving lovely food, especially the Red Lion and The Stable. The South West Coastal Path was in easy reach. There were good road links out of Newquay to surrounding towns and attractions. Would recommend Eden Project, St Ives and Lands End. There were also good bike hire facilities at Trail Bike Hire in Padstow, we were even able to hire an adult trike.The best cream tea was served by Bre Pen Farm and the best Pasty at Land's End.The property was lovely, very spacious and clean. Appreciated the numerous DVDs that were available to use. The garden was lovely and sunny, but be aware of the seagulls if trying to eat outdoors. We would recommend this property to other families.

Sofort wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Da wir das Haus durch die Hintertür betraten, standen wir sofort in der wirklich großzügigen Küche mit dem schönen Holztisch für die Großfamilie und einem Supergasherd, der zum Kochen inspiriert. Die Küchenausstattung lässt keine Wünsche übrig. Auch für Kinder ist mit Stühlen und Geschirr bestens gesorgt. Es gibt sogar Strandspielzeug.

Die Blickrichtung geht zum Fluss und besticht mit wunderbaren Farben und wechselnden Stimmungen. Von dem Studio im Obergeschoß kann man sogar das Meer sehen. Einziger Bittertropfen: mit nur einem einzigen WC und nur einem Bad muss man sich mit 6 Personen plus ein bis zwei Kindern schon gut koordinieren können. Immerhin hat eines der Schlafzimmer ein zusätzliches Handwaschbecken.

Das Haus hat einen schönen Garten und einen direkten Anschluß an den Küstenwanderweg. Bei Ebbe kannn man den Fluß übeerqueren und weit in die Landschaft laufen. Auf der anderen Seite der Halbinsel ist es mit dem Surferstrand immer belebt, wovon man im Haus glücklicherweise nichts abbekommt. Braucht man auch nicht. Der Ort Newquay, wenn man bei dieser Ansammlung von Billigbuden von einem Ort sprechen kann, ist schrecklich hässlich.
