Overview

About the property

39 Lower Stables, 3 bed apartment on Maenporth Estate. Stunning sea views.

Number 39 Lower Stables is a super apartment, just minutes' from Maenporth Beach. It's close to the leisure centre and has fabulous views of the bay. It has a simple traditional style and has been decorated throughout in neutral tones, with the soft furnishings providing bold splashes of colour and interest.

Parking is directly in front of the apartment. Once inside, you'll find yourself in the large living and dining area. Three luxurious cream leather sofas are dressed with matching throws and contrasting blue check cushions, ideal for truly relaxing after a long day sightseeing in Falmouth. The dining area is under the eaves, and consists of a huge pine table and chairs - lots of space here for a long, lazy evening meal, and you can even ask a friend back for supper. The kitchen is fully equipped behind natural, waxed wood units, and has an occasional table in here providing extra working or storage space.You'll find a shower room and toilet on this floor too. And as an added extra, we're now supplying each guest with one bath and one hand towel, free of charge.

Upstairs and you'll see the master bedroom. It's positioned right under the eaves - how fantastic to wake up to that glorious sea view... The rest of the room has traditional pine furniture and the bed throws provide an adventurous burst of colour. The twin and single rooms are styled in exactly the same way, but have garden views. The family bathroom has a modern suite, including a bidet, in dove-grey. There's a bath here and overhead, electric shower to suit everybody's preference.

You'll love the balcony, accessed through the patio doors in the living room. It has a table and chairs, plus stunning, uninterrupted views of the bay. It's the perfect spot for a mid-morning Cornish Cream Tea with freshly baked scones, strawberry jam and lashings of rich, clotted cream. Remember though, jam first; we're Cornish.

You are free to wander through the 29 acres of established gardens, and will have full use of the leisure facilities, including the indoor, heated swimming pool. For bookings of over one week, we'll have a welcome hamper of red wine, Taylors filter coffee, Smugglers tea, milk and a selection of Cornish biscuits ready for your arrival.

A returnable £100 deposit against damages is required on this property.

Private WiFi is now available in 39 Lower Stables, but please note there is no tumble drier int he property.

Location

The Maenporth Estate is just two miles from Falmouth and overlooks the beautiful Maenporth Beach. It's a private complex with a coded entrance gate, making it safe and secure for all guests.

Set in 29 acres of natural woodland, with stunning views of the cove, it's a perfect base for family holidays. You'll find two all-weather tennis courts, a children's play area, and, of course, the Leisure Centre where we have our indoor, heated pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. There are pool and table tennis tables - all free of charge.

The famous award-winning Cove Restaurant is on site, or if you'd prefer something simple, try the Life's a Beach Cafe - you guessed it, on Maenporth beach, for fresh crab sandwiches or a Cornish clotted cream ice-cream. Two miles along the coast and you'll come across Helford Passage and the wonderful Ferryboat Inn which specialises in serving local seafood dishes. From here you can catch the foot ferry across to Helford Village, or hire a rowing boat or paddle board for the afternoon.

Maenporth's a sheltered cove with shallow waters, making it perfect for all kinds of family beach activities: the little ones will love paddling, splashing daddy, and clambering through rock pools. There's plenty of sand and piles of pebbles for sand castle building, and beautiful clear water for swimming.

Arvor Sea Kayaking offer guided kayaking trips throughout the year, and Cornwall Divers will take you on a scuba diving course from the beach! And, at low tide, you may spot the famous Scottish trawler, Ben Asdale, that was wrecked off the Maenporth coast on 30th December 1978.

The nearest town is Falmouth - the third largest natural harbour in the world - take a boat trip along the Carrick Waters to a smuggler's cottage, or hop on the ferry to St Mawes. Visit the Maritime Museum, great for children with its hands-on approach. Catch some the Grand Medieval Jousting at Pendennis Castle. Or simply sit with a cold glass of white wine and watch the boats glide by.

Whatever you choose to do, you'll be sure to unwind from the stresses of life, and simply relax...

Disappointing

  • 3 of 5

I booked 3 lodges at Maenporth Estates for a Post-wedding family holiday, 52, 44 & 39. The location, facilities were excellent but number 39 was a very poor relation compared to the other 2. The decor & bathrooms were tired & dated. The leather sofas were so slippery & uncomfortable & the throws & cushions couldn’t stay in place. There were holes in the carpet at the top of the stairs & quite a few cobwebs. The kitchen equipment was basic & could do with a few more serving bowls & oven dishes. There were very few tumblers/ juice glasses but lots for wine! The scales were very quirky to say the least, more of a feature than a usable weighing device. On the plus side, the bedding was immaculate & the very large bath towels were lovely.

Lovely view shame about the property

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed at Maenporth several times before over the last 12 years and have always been impressed with the properties and the aspect. We had not previously stayed in this property and it was the worst we have stayed in.

Shortly after our arrival we were visited as the patio doors were broken. Later in the week we were visited again to have the extractor fan fixed in the downstairs bathroom. Also the window in the downstairs bathroom would not open, and as the extractor did not work we were reduced to one bathroom.

The decor was poor, there were chips out of the ceilings and walls, the stair carpet is threadbare, we attempted to close the curtains in the lounge but I thought that they would fall down as there were so few hooks that we decided not to, the blind in the lounge is too short, the lights under the cabinets in the kitchen do not work. Both bathrooms and the kitchen need updating, including cracked tiles in the downstairs shower room.

The details stated that there was a tumble dryer in the property but there was not - we would not have booked this property had we known this.

We do not feel that the lovely views justify the price we paid for this property; past properties we felt were good value because of the high standard and home from home comforts.

We also feel that to ask for a retainer for damages is unfair as so much of the property is in need of repair there is a high potential for items to break. We have enjoyed some lovely holidays at Maenporth in the past but had this been our first experience we would not return.

On a positive note the wifi worked well and all of the staff that came to the property were polite, friendly and very professional so we thank you for that.

Owner's Response: "Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry that the property did not come up to expectations. This is our first year of ownership and whilst we have replaced all kitchen appliances, heating and various curtains, furniture and TV we have not yet had time to complete all the upgrades we planned. We agree that the top step of the stair carpet is worn and the downstairs bathroom is particularly dated with some cracked tiles in the shower and replacement of all flooring and refurbishment of the downstairs bathroom are scheduled for this winter. As far as the tumble dryer is concerned, apologies, we are not aware that the property has ever had this and will ask for the details to be corrected. Thanks again for your feedback, we believe it is still a lovely, comfortable property but take your comments on board for ongoing improvement." Above is the owner's comment. I will add that we cannot apologise enough about the cleaning - the company we used are no longer working with us and we have seen a vast improvement in the last two weeks. I have amended the details on the website regarding the tumble drier. We do hope you will give us another chance to impress you next year. All good wishes, Sara (Holiday Cornwall)
