Half term June family holiday in Trevone
This was a great bungalow, and I am in two minds about even writing a review to be honest, as I don't want it to get booked up when we want to return!
We went for June half term with our two boys aged 4 and 7. The layout was great. There is a hallway with a separate loo near the front door, and then one very large room which is split into a lovely, very well stocked, modern kitchen, a large dining area and a lounge/TV area. The layout works brilliantly for a young family, There are double doors through to a small internal hallway and there are three bedrooms leading off it, plus a clean, modern, comfortable bathroom. The double bed in the first bedroom was very comfy, and then there was a twin bedded room and another smaller bedroom which had a single bed with trundle bed underneath. All were beautifully clean, with comfy beds and great storage. The only slight issue we had was with the light curtains not blocking out enough light, but that's the only slight gripe we had with the whole place, and certainly wouldnt stop us returning.
There is a large private drive, and the cottage is situated up a private quiet road. The garden is big enough for the kids to play hide and seek and run around in. There is a pub at the end of the road (2mins stagger at most), and they let people use their pathway which cuts out the walk through the winding country lanes down to the beach. Instead, it's a 10 minute walk with boys stopping and looking at everything en route, or a 5 minute walk unhindered!
We love Trevone beach, it has easy access and a good little shop, cafe and toilets. The waves are good and the water quality is high, plus there is a lifeguard on duty. Its a 10 minute drive to Padstow, where parking is a bit of a nightmare, but it's a lovely little harbour town to visit. We had a few glorious sunny days, but then had bad weather (gales, storms and freezing!) but we were warm as toast with the heating on, and taught our sons how to play monopoly and scrabble from the well stocked games cupboard!
The cottage particulars we read on this site are accurate. The owners were extremely helpful, and left us a lovely welcome pack, including wine and a homemade lemon cake, which was much appreciated after a hellish trip from Manchester in the Diamond Jubilee M5 traffic jam!
All in all, we strongly recommend this bungalow but strictly on the basis that nobody else pinches the weeks that we want to go back there! Thank you for a lovely holiday Crisalgo
Owner's Response: Thank you Vickie, so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in spite of the awful weather. Sorry the week you requested for 2013 is already booked!!
