“We had a very happy family holiday in a great location”
Reviewed September 3, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

The house was spacious enough for 6 adults 4 children and a baby. Well equipped. Garden is safe and pleasant. Views of sea would be even better if some trees had not grown so high in the fields beyond. Short but steep 5 minute walk down a quiet road to a lovely safe sandy beach with rock pools, toilets, cafe, yet in the height of August it wasn’t crowded. Do hire some kayaks for an hour, and see some seals. We did the macho thing, and pushed buggies back up the hill. Not for the faint hearted. But there is a defibrillator at the top! Ok we could have loaded stuff in the car, and paid for the car park, or shuttled folk back. Great day at Eden Project. Expensive but don’t miss it.

“An ideal venue for a family holiday”
Reviewed April 22, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The Old farmhouse is ideal for a family holiday. The setting is stunning and it well located for the many attractions in Cornwall. There is also an attractive local beach. The garden is great for children of all ages with plenty of space for them to run around. Inside is very well equipped especially the kitchen and we had large family meals with adequate seating around the table for 10 people, high chairs and guests. (We have a son lives locally). Bedroom were very comfortable. The children especially enjoyed the sense of freedom the farmhouse gave them. We would certainly come again.

“Beautiful house, amazing views and a great location”

10 of us stayed here for 1 week. The house accommodated us comfortably, 8 adults and 2 children. The views from the kitchen/dining room and the master bedroom are amazing. Any time we spent at the house was spent in the dining room and the garden, where there was plenty of room for us all. The house was very clean with good facilities The house is in a great location, a 5 minute walk from the beach. The beach is a bit rocky but great for going rock pooling when the tide is out, we found plenty of crabs and fish. It is a great base for exploring Cornwall, Looe and Padstow are good for crabbing and we visited lots of little costal towns which were very nice. We would not hesitate in booking this property again if we were to come down to Cornwall. Everybody loved it. Mel (the property manager) was very helpful and quick to respond to any of our questions.

“Lovely property”

We were a family group of 6 adults and 4 children whose ages ranged from almost 2 to 11 and the house suited us perfectly. The spacious sitting/dining area off the kitchen is an ideal family space and the stunning view is a bonus, The more formal sitting room can be used as an adult retreat and the smaller "den" is ideal for the children. Whoever "bags" the master bedroom with ensuite is lucky to wake up to that same stunning view.
The property manager was easy to contact, returned calls and did her best to sort out any issues.

Excellent property which cannot be adequately described in a brochure.
It far exceeded our expectations,the sea view from the conservatory was fantastic, the house was was extremely well equipped every thing had been thought of.
The house was very warm and comfortable we loved the log burner.
Decor was immaculate . the whole package made for a wonderful family New Year.
We definitely plan to return.
