Location good with access to Truro and Locall amenities. The house has a good number of bathrooms and the upstairs is quite spacious. However the property would benefit from some small changes. There is only 1 TV and when you have muti generational occupancy not everyone may want to watch the same programme. Little touches like somewhere to hang you dressing gown on back of bathroom door. A plug close to a mirror so you can blow dry your hair, explanations about how equipment works such as oven etc, some information about local restaurants / attractions, how and when to empty bins to name just a few.
As others have commented the lamp bulbs did not work, lack of glasses and some chipped crockery. However the owners kindly visited and provided additional saucepans etc as we were visiting over Christmas and new year. The ensuite shower room would benefit from a shelf.
Overall it is not a property I would return to unless some small finishing touches were made and then it would only be for a short break

Lovely spacious house just outside Truro. Plenty room for all the family(3 generations & 3 dogs). Would have appreciated second tv for granddaughter’s viewing.
Great location for touring and local amenities. Weather could have been kinder so that we could have made use of garden and hot tub.
The details regarding rubbish collection could have been clearer. Locals appear to have different coloured bags to accommodate recycling. We had quite a bit of rubbish after Christmas and apparently were very lucky to get a lot of it collected. Recycling indoors is clear but as it is all collected in black bags inside the designated bins seems a waste when put out for collection - hard to tell what’s what. Sorry we didn’t empty indoor bins - didn’t know where to put the excess rubbish.
All in all we had a lovely time & would recommend the house to anyone wanting to see some of Cornwall

We were in Truro for 3 nights and so pleased we found this house. Can not fault it. All rooms were large and comfortable and so close to our family who live in Truro. The house is described by the owner as luxurious and that is how I would describe it too. Will be looking to book again when we next all come to Truro. Thank you

The house is lovely and we had a good holiday. However, there was no welcome package when we arrived such as tea bags, coffee or milk. Inadequate amount of toilet rolls, no bin bags, chipped crockery. The bedding is definitely not luxury standard, especially the pillows. Not enough towels and again not luxury. The blinds are either broken or not long enough. No lamp in one bedroom and broken in another. I was disappointed because my cousin came from New Zealand. This was an expensive holiday and the only one I will get.
It is potentially a lovely place if these are issues are corrected. Other previous comments about items needed in the kitchen still need to be met. No vegetable peeler. It's a little difficult peeling veg with a knife.

We were very excited about staying in this beautiful-looking property with excellent reviews... however, for future guests I just wanted to highlight an extremely inflexible response to the terrible weather conditions earlier in the year. We were booked to stay as a special family weekend away on 2nd and 3rd March 2018 and, following unbelievably heavy snowfall across the country, regretfully had to cancel as we had a four-hour car journey to reach the area and it was just completely unsafe to travel. Despite several telephone calls and emails to the owner to explain the situation, express my disappointment and ask for the possibility of rescheduling to alternate dates, or perhaps waiving some of the cancellation fee, I was told very bluntly that 'the roads are clear in Truro' (which was later in fact disputed by friends in the area) and no further consideration would be made to accommodate our request. Sadly it has of course made us re-book elsewhere, paying out again in full. Considering the weather brought most of the UK to a halt that weekend, although I obviously wasn't expecting a full refund, I was very disappointed in how the situation was handled.

Beautiful, warm, comfortable, cosey house. Very close to the shops to get bits for the weekend & pub nearby. Perranporth beach was about 15 mins away & was wonderful (despite Storm Brian!). We had a great, local takeaway from 'Curry Inn' for a night in too!
There was lots of space for everyone, perfect for our cousins trip to visit our Grandad. After seeing the house our friends are also looking to book this house for their weekend away soon too. I would definitely book this house again for next year's trip and recommend to anyone!

Lovely well-decorated house with comfortable and substantial furnishings throughout. We loved the wall lights, and the hot tub was wonderful! We were a party of 8 and there was plenty of space - we are all adults but there is a decent-sized garden for kids, and you pass a small playpark on the way into the estate.
This property is conveniently positioned, you can get into Truro very easily and it's only 5 minutes to get to the A30 which forms the spine of Cornwall so nowhere is much more than an hour's drive away (depending on traffic). There is also a bus stop a couple of minutes' walk away, from where you can take buses both up and down the coast, so you could easily just use public transport.
Apart from having to go home, our only negatives are: (1) as in a previous review the kitchen could do with another saucepan or two and a large baking sheet (I left a couple of small ones plus a basic cheese grater) and some more mugs and small glasses for when the dishwasher is on; (2) there should be 2 bedside tables in all double bedrooms; (3) we would suggest that the study be turned into another bedroom with a wardrobe and two single beds, to give more flexibility to the accommodation and/or one of the double beds being replaced by a zip and link bed so that two non-couple people can share a room but not a bed (my two adult sons weren't keen on the thought of sharing a bed so took it in turns to sleep on the floor)
Having said all that, we had a wonderful time, had some of the best weather of the summer by all accounts, and would very much like to return in the not-too-distant future. It is definitely the best property I have stayed in in over 30 years of Cornwall holidays. Thank you very much.

Dear Hilary, thanks for your review and especially for the ideas for the improvements.
Thanks for the cheese grater etc...Hopefully for the next time, when you will book, we should have what you have wished for...

Had a great stay in this lovely house. Lots of space and comfortably fitted out. The hot tub was amazing.
Kitchen could do we a few more things in it like a cheese grater, garlic press, cafetiere and baking trays as difficult to cater for 8 people with the limited equipment. It is also worth noting that although this is a 6 bedroom house only 4 bedrooms actually have beds in them ie 4 double/kingsize beds.

Could not fault this House!
A group of us stayed here for a Birthday weekend away, the rooms are so spacious, you do not feel as though you are stepping on anybody's feet. The Hot Tub was fantastic, it's a great thing to come back to after being out all day.
The House being situated in Truro is brilliant for people who want to explore the area, we had a few people within the group who are Surfers and loved the fact that the house was only a 10-15 min drive away from the Beautiful beach of Porthtowan and St Agnes.
If I could change/add anything to this house it would be to put a blind on the Velux window on the top floor Bedroom, more pans for the oven (we struggled with cooking with only 1 oven tin). Apart from that we all had an amazing time and would 100% book to come back again.
Thank you for making you home very welcoming!
