Fabulous in every respect.

5 of 5
Jasmin Cottage is a fantastic little find. It has something for everyone. A short walk from the beach, facilities for showering after surfing, a beautiful log burner for cosy evenings and well put together and cared for accommodation. The cottage facilities were excellent and Catherine and Will couldn't have been more helpful. Perfect for romantic getaways or a family holiday...we were 2 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room for all. The retro board games are a lovely touch and were enjoyed by all ages! The outside decking was a fantastic little sun trap and the garden lovely and sheltered. A beautiful retreat in a stunning part of the world. Would highly recommend it.

Beautiful Large House - Perfect for Families

5 of 5
We stayed here during the Easter Holidays and couldn't have asked for more welcoming and helpful owners who were just next door. On arrival we were shown around and provided a lovely welcome pack including some scrumptious freshly baked scones (thank you again!), the house was very spacious and felt very comfortable with the 8 people in our party. The property is a new-build, and so always feels warm. The house was in perfect condition, and everything was new or almost new. The garden was very well maintained and has plenty of seating and areas so everyone can find a place to relax/eat/sunbathe/read. Inside the kitchen is large, with plenty of storage space for food/drinks and a large table for 6; in the living room there is a large table for 8 and plenty of seating for all the guests. Upstairs the bedrooms (2 with en-suite) have plenty of space, are very tastefully decorated, and have large, soft, and luxurious beds - we were all very happy with it and slept incredibly well. The house is around a 5-minute walk from the village centre, and then a further 5-minute walk from Crantock beach which is such an amazing place and has facilities where you can hire boards and take lessons. On Easter Sunday we headed down there and joined the National Trust Easter egg hunt and most of us (30+) were scrambling up and down the dunes like children, it was a brilliant event. In the village centre there are plenty of places to eat, 2 pubs and a small cafe; a short walk along the coastal path there is another pub and another cafe (well reviewed, but we didn't eat there) and it's just a stone throw away from Newquay. For walkers there are some amazing walks nearby, the south-west coastal path in either direction is simply stunning: to the west it takes you along cliffs, and past several dog-friendly beaches (Porth Joke, Holywell, and Perranporth) and the walk is absolutely gorgeous; to the East takes you to Newquay and is more of a countryside walk up the river. Also of note is Cubert Common, accessed by walking towards West Pentire, and turning left to Traego Farm (with a small, well stocked shop, and takeaway food), then following the road, the common is a beautiful place and perfect for dogs to play. I would definitely recommend this house and it has made us all consider making this a regular occurrence in the future.. To Belinda, and Derek, everyone (and Nadja the Dog) sends their Thanks (woofs) for everything :)
