“Just got back from a lovely week spent at Beachcombers.”
When we arrived we found it to be lovely and clean and fresh smelling. The lady looking after the cleaning had even managed to get it ready early for us.
The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, plates, glasses, pots, pans, dishes, cups etc. We managed to find everything we needed for our stay, all were lovely and clean. It had a fridge/freezer, microwave, cooker, hob, toaster, kettle, washing machine and dishwasher. We made use of everything except the dishwasher as we just preferred to wash up as we do at home.
The house itself we found to be very pleasant and cosy. The living room sofas were very comfortable, even more so after a nice long walk along the coastal path cliff tops.
Ensuite bathroom with shower and separate bathroom with bath were in excellent order with lots of hot water available for bath or shower use. The shower in the ensuite had great water pressure.
We didn't use the second bedroom with the 3 single beds as there was only the two of us. We found the king sized bed although a firmer than we are are used to really comfy and we both had some great nights sleep.
We didn't get to sit out on the downstairs decked area or the upstairs one due to the weather not being so great but can see it would have been lovely to have done so with better weather conditions.
On a couple of the worst weather days during our stay we made use of watching some of the DVD's or playing the board games available in the home. There were many games and books for youngsters available and also a selection of soft back books for adults if they wanted to read them.
Wifi was good and had a stable connection all week. We connected to it fine.
It was nice to have an allocated parking space which was just a short distance from the home. It made parking very easy.
The surrounding area is beautiful and you are so close to Porth beach, and not far from others. We found it very peaceful there and just far enough away from the busier resort of Newquay. The costal path is on the doorstep and we walked many miles in both directions exploring and taking in the views.
We found it easy enough to shop and get groceries for the home, with a Tesco Express about 10 mins walk away. We did pre-book to eat at some of the restaurants at night which is a must at the moment so best to look at where you may want to eat and do that. During the day we found on our walks we could always find somewhere to catch a quick sandwich or pastie for lunch. We didnt starve and got to enjoy many Cornish treats.
We made use of the bar at the Glendorgal Hotel which is just a few mins walk from the home, and enjoyed sitting out when the weather was nicer just watching the sea and enjoying it all.
All in all we had an excellent time staying at this home, it more than exceeded our expectations and we most certainly will be back in 2022.
