The villa we stayed in was as expected. It was clean on arrival, there were plenty of towels and a spare set of bedding, hairdryer, iron and board and dishwasher (complete with tablets) provided. I've seen a comment from management saying that the cleaning staff come in every day, I've seen no evidence of that but then as I didn't...

We stayed for a week with our springer spaniel. just fantastic. Home from home. Everything you need, clean and tidy, the heating was great in chilly evenings. The best dog friendly beach for us was Constantine about 3 miles away, but you have to drive as the roads are narrow and no paths. Newquay near by. We can't wait to...

We took a dog with us and a specific large walking area was available. Everything in the unit was very clean. There was an on site shop with excellent stocks of most things required during our stay. A very very comfortable restful stay ,we will go again soon !!!!

When we booked we didn't realise it was on a park that wasn't quite the standard we thought it would be. The house was in need of some tlc with half the plaster missing off the wall in the entrance and a cheap fake leather sofa in the living room with no cushions and in desperate need of reprinting. The...

We would recommend these villas. Spacious, clean, everything you need in the kitchen, and didn't feel the need to wash everything before using utensils. The garden was great and secure for the dogs. Nice to have a washing machine and dishwasher although we only used dishwasher once. Lovely enclosed area to let dogs have a run around. And a great...

We booked a week long stay to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday. Due to having to cater for an elderly dog our choice of venues was a bit limited. So when this came up on secret escapes we jumped at it, and it couldn't have been better. The villas are very modern and cleverly designed to give you everything you...

This was our 3rd visit. We have always liked the houses even though they're a bit out of the way. The houses are bright and airy but starting to look a bit tired. They've finally added wifi, which is great as there is very little phone signal. New bedding a towels would go a long way to improving things.

Have just returned from a Mon-Fri stay at the Bay Retreat Villas and the whole of the party (4 adults and 1 dog) thought the villas were an ideal place to stay to explore Cornwall. We had day trips to Tintagel Castle, Port Isaac, Rock, Padstow and the Eden project and none of them took longer than 45 minutes. The...

Excellent accommodation in beautiful area. Very clean and adequately equipped except no bread board. No problem with check in key exactly where we were told it would be. We bought our bikes with us and kept safe in back garden. Did few local rides to beaches + Camel trail which was fabulous. Weather wasn't great so went to St Ives...

Bay Retreat Villas are in a fantastic location for North Cornwall. Many beaches within a few miles drive. Accommodation here was really good. Lovely touches such as towels, tea towels, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets provided. Surrounding park did not match the elegance of the villas but it didn't spoil our break here. Would definitely recommend to friends and family...
