“Absolutely Lovely”
Reviewed October 17, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Had a wonderful stay. We were travelling quite late on a Friday evening and Mo was very accommodating. The room is gorgeous and was very clean, and everything you could want was provided. Would definitely visit again.

“A very different experience!”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Due to us getting our wires crossed, we didn't realise that although we were staying at the owners own home, we would be sharing the house with her.....This was a first for us!
The owner, Mo, couldn't have been nicer. What a lovely lady she is. She welcomed us into her home where we had the attic bedroom, consisting of double bed, two single beds, table and four chairs, fridge, toaster, kettle, crockery/cutlery, loads of tea/coffee/drinking chocolate/sugar etc.... biscuits, jam/marmalade/butter, loaf of bread and large bottle of milk. Mo had thought of everything to make our overnight stay very pleasant and homely.
The room was decorated very nice. Everything was spotlessly clean. Ensuite shower with loads of towels/shampoo/shower gel etc.... We wanted for nothing!
I have to say, i have a trapped nerve in my back and leg (Sciatica), and i had the best nights sleep i've had for a very long time. The bed was so comfy!
It was nice and warm. The view was great as you could see the beach/sea. It was only a two minute walk to the centre of Perranporth.
Although Mo was in the house with her grandchildren, we couldn't hear anything from the attic bedroom at all so don't be put off by this.
We highly recommend this house and Mo will do anything to make you feel welcome. She's a very kind lady. Thank you for letting us stay the night!

“Excellent location providing everything you could need”
Reviewed August 27, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Perranporth is a small town centred around the beach so any property with a view of the beach (such as this) is well located. The Bucket and Spade also neighbours the local duck pond with golf putting and row boat hire available for very low prices.
The room has been decorated very thoughtfully and contains everything you need including a large fridge, breakfast cereals and bread - on top of what is listed in the advertisement. We also used the TV with built-in DVD player on one rainy evening when we wanted to rest indoors.
Mo was extremely kind and considerate, offering to help in anyway she could.
The only reasons we don't give 5 stars: we're both tall and the room is in a converted loft space so it was a tiny bit cramped for us. Anybody 6ft (1.8m) and under will have no problem. Also we found out after a few days that our door could only be locked from the inside (by pushing it very hard). Security was no issue at all and we felt that our belongings were safe so don't be put off by this, it just makes me lean towards a "very good" rating rather than "excellent", which goes for all other aspects of the rental.

“Fabulous stay at the bucket and spade”
Reviewed July 31, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Had a wonderful time at the Bucket & Spade, ideally located a few minutes walk from the beach and town with a lovely room for all the family. Mo, our host was so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The rates are very reasonable for somewhere for a 3 night break in school summer holidays, that would take the five of us. The kids has a great time and we will definitely be back. Thanks for having us Mo and we will definitely be recommending you !!

A very cosy place within just 5 mins walk to the beach and a very welcoming host. Perfect for children, my little one didn't want to leave :)

“Location more than perfect, and Bucket and Spade was great!”

We were a group of 4 teenage lads mad on surfing. When we booked Mo, the landlady, said no problem to us. Room was great, comfy beds, super clean and a table in the room for brekkie so a good start before you hit the waves. Location perfect, 5 mins walk to beach and so nice after a hard day surfing to come back to a lovely en suite hot shower. Mo was perfect and really looked after us. Nothing was too much trouble. Nice sunny terrace and the boating lake opposite. Sad to leave the place but deffo be back soon, thanks Mo.
