The house is beautiful and has a lovely view for bird watching. What a fantastic week we've had! Loved Treyarnon Bay and Porthcothan. The host was wonderful! We'll be back!

Mrs Nicki D,

The house is amazing and my family has enjoyed going to various beaches, including Constantine and Harlyn. We loved it here!

Mrs Olga S,

The most perfect holiday farmhouse. Everything we could possibly want! We went Padstow, Newquay, Daymer Bay. We walked to Treyarnon, Constantine, Boobys, Mother Iveys - a gorgeous 10 mile walk. We ate at the Beach Hut at Watergate Bay and many other places, but The Cornish Arms is amazing! Padstow Farm Shop also worth a visit!

Mr Richard H,

It was really lovely, home from home, one of the best cottages we have ever stayed at, very dog friendly, lovely large enclosed garden, and really restful and a gorgeous quiet location, perfect!

Mrs P R,

The house is beautiful, and in a great location – a 5-10 minute walk from the beach and a fantastic coastal walk. The host was responsive, and the place was clean and well maintained. We loved the little touches too - like milk in the fridge, and firewood to use with the lovely fireplace in the lounge. I'd really recommend this place, and would love to stay again.

Miss R,

Just lovely. This was my first time in Cornwall and I loved everything about it! Thankyou

Miss Annie B,

Equipped with everything you need and more, with stunning views and beautifully clean. We can not recommend highly enough.

Tara B,

We had a wonderful week over August with our young children. The house was spacious and full of character. The big windows over looking the farm were wonderful to wake up to each morning. The location to wonderful North Cornish beaches and coastal walks was brilliant and the location perfect if you're looking for a quiet getaway. The kitchen was spotless and very well equipped. We have booked two weeks for next summer and we can't wait.

Ms Anastasia D,

It was what it was. An old adorable farm building and we loved it. The owners were really quick to respond to any problems.

Mrs Patsy P,


Porthcothan Bay is another of those locations which is just waiting to be discovered and explored. Within easy reach of Padstow and St Merryn, and a short drive up the coast road from Newquay and Mawgan Porth, the sheltered, sandy bay at Porthcothan is another of the many family-friendly beaches that can be enjoyed along this part of the coastline. It is also dog-friendly all year round, and boasts picturesque cliff walks and outstanding scenery. The area around Porthcothan is also home to a wide variety of sea birds, and the cliffs are often grazed by ponies and sheep, which helps with conservation of local plant life. The nearby village of St Merryn and the town of Padstow offer an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants, in addition to the local pub, the Tredrea Inn, which hosts live bands and also has a beer garden where you can sip your drink while admiring the superb views over the bay. Porthcothan Bay is also close to the village of St Eval, where anyone, whatever your age, can have loads of fun on the Karting Circuit, and when you're done, you can visit nearby Kernow Chocolate where you will find a wide range of yummy chocolate treats!
