“Home from Home”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were greeted with provisions of wine, butter and fresh bread which was a lovely touch and much appreciated.
The house was everything and more. Very comfortable and beautifully furnished. The resort is small and the local residents were very helpful and friendly. The kids loved the beach with its sandy bay and rock pools.
I would recommend this to anyone looking to have a quiet family holiday.
Thank you Claire and Dave - we will definitely be making a return visit.

“Peaceful, well-appointed Cornish holiday cottage!”

We stayed for the last week in July at Glenmount House, in Portreath and very much enjoyed our stay. We went away with my brother and his young family and there was plenty of room for us all to spread out - two reception rooms and kitchen/diner. There are also games consoles - Wii and PS2 along with lots of games, and Apple TV and Wifi. And traditional games, books, buckets/spades/fishing nets too!

Claire and Dave were always friendly and helpful with advice on what to do and a list of restaurant recommendations, and provided local taxi numbers when we decided to have a night out where nobody had to drive. (Blue Bar - the next town along to the north - Porthtowan, - live guitar/open mic one night, and general lively buzz with good beer and great sea views - you can't book a table so it's good to get there early!) We had a great time bodyboarding surfing and kayaking and you can also get surfing lessons from the shop on the beach - Surf HQ, which is Dave's shop - so he's there for all the advice/info/hire etc there too. There are some great places to explore in a kayak. The beach is nice sand and good for making sand-castles with moats! We also took our mountain bikes and did the coast-to-coast along the old tram-lines from Portreath to Devoran past all the old mines, which was interesting. There are two cycle-hire places really nearby too - Elm Farm and another more towards Devoran.

We also used the little bakery, small mini-market, and went to a couple of pubs (Portreath Arms and the Basset Arms) and we used the Atlantic Cafe quite a bit. They do a good coffee in there, snacks and ales and it's near the beach - there's also a small beach cafe on the beach by the steps which is handy for a quick bite or cold drink. We also had a good meal at the 'terrace' restaurant which is just a short walk up the hill past the farm where you can pet the animals. They have a kind of a Spanish Cornish mix menu - had some lovely seafood there.

I know this might sound like a micro detail but some places we have stayed before have been a bit tight with the kitchen basics (e.g. only two dishwasher tablets and a few grains of salt.) Everything was well-provided for, and it just makes such a difference! Knives were sharp, and the bathroom products were good too.

When the weather was good we took our breakfast on the sheltered, sunny, wooden terrace in the garden. There's a lovely view from there. We didn't get round to having our barbecue that we had planned in the end, mainly because we were out for whole days at a time, but there is one included with the properly.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay, Thank you, Claire and Dave xx

“The perfect spot ”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had an extended stay at the beautiful Glenmount House. It is perfectly situated literally right next to Illogan Woods and in easy walking distance of the beach. Needless to say the kids loved spending lots of time in both. The house itself is spacious, light and airy and beautifully decorated yet still feels very homely and welcoming after a long day at the beach. Kids loved the big roll top bath too. Deck has an amazing view; perfect for sundowners!
