Great Find In A Fantastic Location , Super Holiday
I have only booked holiday houses through the security of an agent before. So I was nervous booking directly through a property owner. I need not have worried.
From the first phone call with Rosie I felt totally comfortable. Booking was easy , and any questions were answered swiftly .The property was easy to locate, and the roads to it were large and easy to drive down.
On arrival at the cottage we parked right outside , brilliant, and two spaces bonus. The cottage inside was exactly as described, clean, fresh , with a modern kitchen and bathroom.
The beds were made up for our arrival with crisp white linens and small towel bales for each person sat on top. They were also extremely cosy with good plump pillows, such a relief to climb into a comfy bed after a busy day touring Cornwall.
We were a mixed bunch, my husband and I almost 50 !! Spent our time touring , St Ives, Mullion, Hollywell Bay, Marazion, St Michaels Mount , As well as Newquay Zoo and the boating lake which were just down the road. While the rest of our party were in their early 20's and loved Newquay town, beaches, and nightlife, with a Great selection of clubs and bars.
We also took a dog, who quickly settled , and found the patio out front a great place to snooze, at 12 yrs old the low fences would have been an effort for her to jump. Nearly every beach / restaurant we visited was dog friendly, and bowls of dog water were readily available in each town.
The house was quite literally 2 mins from town, fudge, pasty and coffee shops on the doorstep. Supermarket across the road.
We found many good restaurants , The Olde Dolphin literally two minutes away did great fresh food and friendly service.
I would not hesitate in recommending this property to any of my friends. I will definitely keep the details handy and would go back again. Brilliant holiday, lots to do, lovely cottage , well done.
Thankyou Rosie and Family x
Fab Summer Holiday At Stones Throw .
Using Owners direct was a first for me, and I was concerned as to wether booking directly with an owner would work out or be as secure as using an agency .
My initial chat with Stones Throws owner Rosie put my mind at rest, and the booking process was easy, everything fell into place quickly. I knew I had a contact if I had any questions.
On arrival at the cottage we were able to park right outside (2 cars) . The cottage was located right in town , we could visit a pub, restaurant, pasty or fudge shop or supermarket within a 2 minute walk. Get to the beach in 5 minutes, brilliant. The cottage had everything we needed including really comfy beds which were made up for our arrival with crisp clean linen and little towel bales for each person. The televisions were smart TV's with sky HD , Great . Lovely bathroom and kitchen . In our party there were 6 adults and one dog , we all had plenty of space . Our dog lounged outside on the front patio and the front door stayed open most of the week to let the sunshine in. I am really pleased to have found this little cottage and will definitely be keeping the details handy. We had a fab week away .Thankyou Rosie and all your family .
Home from home!
Location, Location, Location! This property is perfectly placed for the harbour, shops, pubs and restaurants. With Sainsbury's quite literally across the road you have all the facilities you need to ensure you have a wonderful visit! The house itself is furnished beautifully and has all the comforts of home, with sky tv and wifi available if needed. The bathroom boasts a bath and separate shower so will keep all members of the family happy! The open plan kitchen/diner/lounge works really well ensuring whoever is cooking (or in our case, pouring the wine and sorting out nibbles!) doesn't miss out on what the rest of the party are up to! Will definitely be visiting again!
A few friends and I spent a weekend, the house was situated in the perfect spot for us - it was clean and tidy and spacious. The harbour was a few minutes away and just up Fore Street we were on the Coastal path to Fistral Bay and Pentire Point. We went to Lewinnick Lodge and the Fort Inn for food and I can highly recommend both. We had a lovely relaxed time, I wish I could have stayed longer as there is plenty to do so another visit is called for.
