Property was exactly as advertised, great position, well equipped and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a great location, 5 minutes down the steps to the sea, the onsite pool was great, it was really quiet at this time of year. We still swam in the sea every day, bought wetsuits from Falmouth 10 minutes in the car. hired kayaks and paddleboard and had a great time. When day was done put little one to bed and sat on the balcony having a glass of wine looking at the sea, perfect! would definitely consider staying here again and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed stay with virtually your own beach.

Great week in Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The apartment was lovley, tidy, well equipped and even spacier than the pictures suggested.

The view was stunning. There are lots of interesting sites like castels and gardeners just around the corner.

The barbecue in the garden was that much fun that we had burgers more than once... :)

The pool was a real treat for the kids and they loved it. Overall the property is well tended and the staff friendly.

When we could not find the vacuum cleaner Sue responded very quickly and gave us a hint were to look.

To the delight of our kids there was a bunch of little rabbits that play in the garden. One morning our kids even spotted fox from the the bedroom. We had much fun....

Wonderful holiday home with stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week here, everything was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, warm and cosy after days out in the chilly April weather! Owners were prompt with email replies and local info in accommodation was very useful. We are already looking to book for next year!

Superb apartment and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a wonderful holiday staying in 3 The Ridges. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need for a holiday and we found their folder of suggested places to visit, restaurants, etc. very helpful. Hiring a boat and mooring outside the Pandora Inn and bike rides on the coast to coast track were particular highlights.

The property is absolutely no perfect and everything is modern and up to date. The views are truly stunning.

We had breakfast on the balcony, a glass (or two!) of wine in the evening and BBQs on the patio, all whilst enjoying the wonderful views.

We and our three children loved the leisure centre, tennis courts and children's play area and found all the staff extremely helpful and friendly and the grounds are beautiful.

Altogether a fantastic holiday and we're already planning to return next year.
