"Perfect location, excellent facilities, friendly helpful owners."
From making contact with the owners by telephone, we were made most welcome. Directions to the property were excellent. It is set within a working riding school, which suited us down to the ground. The owners were very friendly and showed us around the site, ensuring we knew where everything was. The riding school is excellent value for money. The beach is very close by and is incredibly beautiful.
The facilities within the property itself were very good, although there were some small things such as the wifi only works at one end of the property and it just needed a few housekeeping touches, loose drawer fronts, towel rails etc. There needs to be a sign on the ensuite door as there is a step down which I fell down the first time I opened the door, not realising it was there.
However, that said you can not detract from the quality of the accommodation and the facilities on-site. There is a games hall for the children, the weather was awful the few days we were there so they were completely entertained. My daughter made use of the riding school.
I have no hesitation in highly recommending this property to anyone and fully intend to return.
Thank you for your comments. We are delighted to hear that you had such a fantastic holiday and that your children made the most of the games facilities and riding school. The Cornish beaches really are spectactular. We have certainly taken note of how you felt the property could have been improved; please feel assured that these points will be addressed.
