About the Owner

'Beam Reach' has been our wonderful holiday home since 2001.

The nieces & nephews, our parents, brother and sisters have had many years of wonderful holidays here.

Although we live in London, the family is spread across England, and some of them now live abroad.

The kids are now all grown up, but we still meet up here in sunny Cornwall especially in the winter (it is the warmest part of Britain!).

We love the big rooms, and it's a great house for all the generations together.

We can spend all day hanging about the pool (and summers seem longer here), but we've also planted the gardens to be lush and colourful year round.

We extended the house in late 2015, adding a fifth bedroom with it's own en-suite bathroom.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from what I can only describe as a perfect holiday for the time of year in this country. The house is just fabulous. We have three small dogs and they have had the best time ever in the huge secure garden, also on the dog friendly beach which was only a short ride away. The house is very well equipped with everything to make your holiday effortless. The swimming pool just tops it. The whole family were in there everyday as it is heated to a very nice temperature.

The house is within easy reach of many places that you would want to visit.

This is the first time we have stayed at Beam Reach but I can honestly say it certainly won't be the last. Can't wait for the next time!

Absolutely Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a fantastic holiday in this fabulous location in Cornwall. The family went on holiday to celebrate a 40th birthday. The children thoroughly enjoyed the house and the novelty, that in their eyes, it was an upside down house was great. (The bedrooms being downstairs and the lounge being upstairs!) The pool was used every day and the children even loved night swimming too - having their own private pool was certainly a highlight. The house was very well equipped to accommodate our two families, in fact it had much more than we could have expected. It was very clean and tidy and the gardens themselves are amazing too. All in all a beautiful house which helps to create lasting happy memories.

The location of the house is fabulous with stunning views and lovely coastal walks. A great location for driving to all parts of Cornwall and local amenities are good being only 5 minutes away. As a family we would recommend a trip to Hangloose at the Eden Project if you are adventurous. We all enjoyed the Skywire - the longest zipwire in the UK which reaches speeds of 50mph flying in the 'Superman' position across the top of the Biomes! The children also enjoyed the Giant Swing which launches you out over the clay pit. This is only a 10 minute drive from the property.

We would recommend this house to anybody travelling and staying in Cornwall and would certainly return to the house again. Thank you for sharing your amazing property - it is Absolutely Fabulous!!

Lovely spacious property and beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

Lovely week in this spacious, light, modern home. Well equipped and laid out with a super lounge on the top floor with great views to the sea. We took 6 teenagers with us, always a challenge, and they thoroughly enjoyed sitting around and swimming in the super pool. The garden was a delight, fully enclosed and safe for the dog.

The coastal path was a short walk away and only 20 minutes to walk to Charlestown where there was a pub and several eateries.

The weather was so good we didn't venture too far from the pool, but we visited The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan; all just a short drive away.

David was great to deal with and responded quickly to any queries we had, we even had a good chat with the gardener! We will be booking again!

Brilliant a holiday you will not regret booking.

  • 5 of 5

Okay where do I start?

Well I could tell you that Beam Reach is clean, well presented and has all the required kitchen utensils but you can read that elsewhere and that is really the boring stuff. Yes there are lots of pots and pans, two cafetieres, a large American fridge and fresh towels and linen everywhere but you don't want to know about that . . . . . . .. . you want to know about the pool!

It's huge, I've seen domestic pools before but this is on a different scale and in length it would not shame a small parish leisure center. It also has a salt water system (not that you'd know) which is something I'd never even realised existed. I can't tell you the science but there is no chlorine added at all and it doesn't even seem particularly salty and is kind on the skin and the eyes.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Three of us (and two dogs) stayed in Beam Reach in June this year and had a fabulous time. The house is large enough that we all had room to have our own space, and indeed between the huge house and extensive gardens it was sometimes hard to find each other!

The dogs loved the gardens and spent a huge amount of time chasing each other all around the place (and studiously avoiding coming anywhere near the fenced in area around the pool in case a splash of water came into contact with them - I suspect they thought it was a giant bath of doom.)

The heated and cosy pool was absolutely the human's favourite thing though, and although we didn't get the best weather when we stayed we didn't let it bother us and simply became the crazy Scottish people swimming in the rain. You're wet anyway after all!

The master bedroom was absolutely lush with wardrobes with interior lights, a massive bed, wooden flooring and an ensuite down a very short corridor which boasted underfloor heating, which was lovely after the aforementioned swimming in the rain. The downstairs bedrooms were all lovely as well, and the living room had a comfortable sofa arrangement with an attached room with masses of books, games and DVD's for those rainy days. The kitchen was very well equipped, and has left me with a sad longing for the crushed ice dispenser...

Everything was clean and ready for us on arrival, and the house was lived in enough that we felt comfortable and welcome. David replied to emails promptly when required, and our deposit was returned within a week.

I'm afraid we can't comment too much on the area's attractions having spent far too long in the pool and lounging around the house, but we did venture out to the Eden Project and to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and a few neighbouring villages as well, all of which was most pleasurable. Can confirm that Dominoes delivers, for when you're so busy relaxing you just can't face cooking too!

Location

From the Owner

We looked for several years before finding 'Beam Reach'. We wanted something modern: big rooms, big windows, high ceilings, views - no cottages for us! Somewhere for the *whole* extended family to meet up. The sea view was essential, but the huge garden and swimming pool was the surprised that sealed the deal. We bought from the architect who built and treasured the house, we've modernised and upgraded, but we try to keep his original vision.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Newquay Cornwall Airport at 17 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Carlyon Bay Hotel at 700 Metres Nearest Golf : Calyon Bay Golf Club at 800 Metres Nearest Train : St Austell Railway Station (GWR fromPaddington) at 4 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Carlyon Bay Hotel at 700 Metres Nearest Beach : Carlyon Bay Beach at 1 Kilometres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Carlyon Bay Beach is around 10 minutes walk. It is a shelter bay with soft sand.

The coast here is a mixture of dramatic cliffs and sheltered bays. So there are many other beaches to choose from within a short drive.

Porhtpean is our favourite, and around 15 minutes drive (8 mins according to Google - but these are pretty country roads!).

Travel:

Car Recommended - ample parking.

St Austell railway station is around 3 miles.

Distances:

Georgetown's Historic Harbour around 5 minutes drive or 20 minutes walk.

Tesco's Superstore about 5 minutes drive - for all your groceries.

St Austell Town Centre about 10 minutes drive, with a wide range of Shops.

The Eden Project about 25 minutes drive - the largest indoor rain-forest, a centre for ecology and education, with an arts and music program too.

Further Details:

Carlyon Bay has a sheltered beach surrounded by high cliffs with dramatic views.

The cliff edge is protected by bushes, and a public field with the South West Coastal Path running across it.

The front row of house are modern mansions, on the most exclusive road in the area.

"Beam Reach" is behind these, but because of the slope you look over them, barely seeing their rooftops. There is a partial sea view through the trees.

We think it's an amazing location, and a great house.

Facilities

From the Owner

Our family say the house is big enough to spend a whole week without leaving the grounds (except for quick trips to the big Tesco's that's close by). Lounging by the pool. Enjoying the view. Lunch & Dinner outside on the sheltered patio - surrounded by the wonderful garden. Cosied up around the real fire in winter. But, there is lots to do as well. It's great for Golfers (that's my brother) and Sailors (all of us). We love visiting the Cornish gardens, and this area is famous for them. And then there's the Eden Project, and the wonderful old harbours like Georgetown. The Carlyon Bay Hotel is close by, great for food, and a wonderful Spa (serious pampering). But, most of all, its that the house is big enough for all of us to spread out and relax.
