                                      Jane's House is well situated close to the dunes and the beach. We were a party of 5 and 2 dogs. We have enough space for all of us even the dogs. The house was clean and have a garden, ideal if you go with dogs or children. Brego 🐼🁡nd Jango 🐶𝠨our dogs) love it there... It is a good dog friendly place and the dog friendly beach is in walking distance. Jane was friendly and always available, good welcoming with cream and jam scones😊򒠊 We definetely recomend Jane's house and we also plan to come back. Place suitable for groups with children, dogs and elderly people.

                                      Paradise!

                                      5 of 5
                                      Four of us (adults)stayed at Ferry House with our labrador, Charlie. We parked at dynamite quay using the permit provided. We could see the car from the house which was comforting and had no problems whatsoever. The walk on the beach takes only a few minutes, you just need to be aware of the tide times and not mind walking over a few rocks and mostly sand and then cope with steps up to the house.We did not try the route over the golf course as parking was difficult and busy whilst we were there. The house is private and with lovely gardens. It has a quirky feel with cottage style features and window seats but also a beach feel with coordinating furniture and accessories. The house is spotlessly clean and has all mod cons. Everything has been considered in the kitchen.There was still an April Chill at night when we visited so we lit the woodburner every evening and we were lovely and warm watching the sun go down at the beach. Sand does get everywhere as it is a beach house right on the beach but is easily cleaned up off the slate/tiled floor. I especially loved the fresh clean white bedding and ample piles of towels for each bedroom. We also appreciated the lovely welcome pack. We spent four blissful days walking on the gorgeous white sandy beaches and swimming in our warm pool and hot tub till the late hours. Our dog Charlie absolutely loved it and it truly is doggy paradise as the beach is dog friendly all the time. To be honest we fell in love with Ferry House and would easily stay there forever! We should really keep this lovely place secret but its just too lovely not to share our memories. Did I mention how relaxing it was, you can stay all week and not speak to a soul if you so choose listening to the waves, or you can watch all the beach activity from your window like quad bikes, kite surfing, rowers, dog walkers, wildlife, or like us you can drop into St Ives just 3 miles down the road or Carbis Bay, do your shopping in close by M&S/Asda or do some sight seeing to the beautiful St Michaels Mount, or visit the Minack Theatre with spectacular views. The only thing I can honestly critique is we tried to use the sunbeds but they were a bit old and rusty and not built for the larger lady shall we say! Some may say that some of the downstairs furnishings were a bit retro but we loved this laid back beach style and the modern accessories have been matched beautifully. Upstairs is as good as any boutique hotel. Just gorgeous!

                                      clean, light and and airy - perfect location

                                      very accurate description and everything we needed. Lovely welcome note and Easter flowers and cornish biscuits with chocolate for the children. Perfect location through dunes to stunning beach and lovely walks then home to cosy woodburner. Sea shells is a real home from home and we have recommended it to family and hope to return again.
