  • “It would help if clear instructions were given on how to find the property which is a bit of a walk from the car park.”

    The decking has now been repaired and there are plenty of glasses. The garlic press is broken, the dishwasher cleans the dishes well. There remains a smell of sewage in the hall and bathroom. There is also a smell outside the house so it seems there is possibly a problem with the drains. The en-suite is quite cramped and the washbasin tiny but the shower itself is a good size.

    The decking has now been repaired and there are plenty of glasses. The garlic press is broken, the dishwasher cleans the dishes well. There remains a smell of sewage in the hall and bathroom. There is also a smell outside the house so it seems there is possibly a problem with the drains. The en-suite is quite cramped and the washbasin tiny but the shower itself is a good size. The sofas are stained in places, the wooden hall floor badly needs attention as it gives a bad initial impression. We found no problem with the temperature of the water from the showers or taps. The fridge needs defrosting and water drips onto the floor from it. The two oven trays which we found in the kitchen cupboard were covered with thick grease on the bottom and the saucepans were also greasy so was the floor of the cupboard. There appeared to be no dish cloth or scourer to clean them with. There was a lovely welcome basket of goodies and the next morning next to the sink we found a small white box containing two black bin bags a small container of dishwashing liquid, a few dishwasher tablets a jay cloth, a small scouring pad and on top some biscuits, tea bags, coffee sachets, sugar and sachets of milk. If only we had a crystal ball we would have known where to find the dish cloth and scouring pad. I did not pay for the rental of the house only to have to clean kitchen utensils on arrival. I called the company who look after the property and they sent someone out that morning to attend to the items and other issues. The valance on one of the single beds clearly had a bad stain on the upper surface next to the mattress and many dirty marks elsewhere. The shower curtains in both bathrooms were mould stained so were replaced and wd40 applied to the master bedroom patio door lock to enable it to be opened more easily. WD 40 was also applied to the handle on the master bedroom door and the lock on the bathroom window which was seized up and difficult to open. We have never rented a self catering property with such issues and the price does not reflect the quality and cleanliness. The fridge size is adequate but there is only a very small freezing section in it. I asked Sykes to find out what freezer facility there was to no avail and even though I called them twice I got no information from them. They are rushed off their feet with lots of business making lots of money but have no extra staff to take care of their clients. The layout of the property we think is good and the views super, we were lucky with the weather and the management company responded well and quickly with courtesy to our complaints.

Lovely three bedroom semi-detached holiday home.

Overlooks Porth Beach and Island.

Close to Watergate Bay.

Coastal Views.

Newquay 1.3 miles.

Ideally situated along the North Cornish Coast, the Beach House is a cosy family holiday home.

Overlooking both Porth Beach and Island, it’s perfect for families wanting to enjoy a relaxing holiday in Cornwall.

Its design helps to capture the stunning views that surround it, with all three of its bedrooms located on the ground floor, there’s a master double with en-suite, and a twin room.

Both of them also have access to the patio, which when entered is the perfect way to start the day.

On the first floor is the spacious open-plan living area, which consists of a well-equipped modern kitchen.

The dining area leads out to the balcony, so why not enjoy all your meals out there on a nice day?

A short stroll away from the Beach House takes you to the steps which lead directly onto Porth Beach and at low tide you can walk as far as Watergate Bay!

It’s a wonderful walk that has to be seen to be believed, if you’ve gone that far, why not stop off for lunch at one of the top eateries there before returning home?

Porth Beach is always worth a visit, as is Porth Island which is accessed by a footbridge.

It has prehistoric earthworks and the remains of an ancient settlement, while offering far reaching views of both the north and south of the coast.

There are also two highly recommended restaurants within a short walk, along with a pub which is actually situated on the beach!

The Beach House really is a great location to enjoy a well-earned holiday at any time of year.

About the location

PORTH

Newquay 1.3 miles; Truro 15 miles.

Porth is a small seaside village on the outskirts of Newquay. The village offers a shop, cafes, restaurants and a pub on the sandy beach, plus nearby is the South West Coast Path, which boasts spectacular scenery. Watergate Bay, with its rolling waves, surf schools, cafe and pubs, is a short walk away, and the popular resort of Newquay with its beaches, watersports, pubs, restaurants, zoo and aquarium is well worth a visit. Fistral Beach and surf centre are three miles west of Porth, whilst the surf training school at Lusty Glaze Beach is actually within the village. The charming fishing village of Padstow, along with Bodmin Moor, the city of Truro, Falmouth and the world-famous Eden Project are all within easy reach, making Porth an ideal base for a Cornish getaway.
