Three Bedroom House, Sleeps 6
Minimum age of primary renter:18
Beautiful property everything you need was there it was like home from home .
The problem you have is parking especially when you just arrive and you have a lady come out and tell us not to go on the garages drive as it is private land yes i do understand but she goes and gets someone to put a boulder in front of the chain which is across the side of the house its ridiculous we are adults not children it just takes the shine off the holiday but on saying that we did enjoy it
Thanks Sandra for your review. I'm sorry to hear you felt uncomfortable with the neighbours. Only recently we received a review saying how friendly the neighbours were. They do, however, get annoyed when guests repeatedly drive over their private parking area sometimes. We will be blocking off the open area at the rear of our driveway to stop any guests exiting this way in future. We appreciate our parking area is a little tight but most large cars can easily point the right way after a three point turn. Private parking is such a luxury in the area we still think it's worth a bit of juggling about.
Beautiful family house
We booked this property for a family stay, 6 of us plus our dog. The house was a lovely open plan with plenty of light.
A very well presented and clean home would highly recommend this property and when we visit the south west again we would gladly book this property.
Would strongly recommend to anyone
We are a family of 5 and couldn’t have wished for anything during our 3 weeks here.
The property has been finished beautifully with everything you could need. We also had family staying nearby who we hosted several meals for, and the house was perfect for also.
The lane leading to the house is narrow but is perfectly fine, as is the driveway. I have a long wheel based transit custom which was fine, along with 2 other cars at times which all fitted in the drive.
The location is also perfect, as you aren’t stuck in St Ives madness, but can get there really easily.
I will be booking again and would thoroughly recommend.
Fabulous location. Great house. However I was a little disappointed with the garden.
I’m not one for slating a perfectly good house however given the cost for 2 weeks I do feel a few extra finishing touches could improve the experience. The house and location is fabulous, there’s no disputing that. The cost was roughly £800 more than other houses I looked at but the garden swung it for me and that’s why I was a little disappointed. There’s no sun in the garden from roughly 2pm due to the massive trees in and around the garden. I do feel the photos are misleading. Little things like extra baking trays, a pizza baking tray, extra knives, scissors etc would improve the experience. Apart from that the kitchen is well stocked. Nonetheless it was a great stay and with Carbis Bay beach at the bottom of the road this was a massive plus.
Thank you for your response Leeann and constructive feedback is very important to us and the owners of Pencroft. The tree you mention that provides the shady area is protected and quite ancient so there is little that we are able to do sadly. Earlier this year, the owner had a tree surgeon thin out many of the other trees and so we know this creates a lovely sunny area in the morning and dappled in the afternoon. The area at the very back of the garden is also available for guests of Pencroft to use and perhaps we should have made this clearer to you? We have now made a note in the description to clearly indicate when the garden enjoys sunshine.
The price for Pencroft is competitive with other like for like properties in Carbis Bay offering parking for two cars, generous outside area, 3 bedrooms and such a wonderful inclusive living space so we do not agree it is over-priced compared to other lovely houses like Pencroft. Perhaps you were looking at houses that were not as attractive or offer quite so much?
The owner is very happy to provide more baking trays, a pizza baking tray and scissors, these will be put in the property as soon as delivered (they have been ordered following your comments, thank you).
Lovely house in great position, close to beach
Excellent property. Beautifully maintained in an ideal location for Carbis Bay beach and St Ives. Perfect for families and couples alike. You won’t be disappointed. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for your lovely review Gary, we really do appreciate your positive feedback and we are super pleased you loved Pencroft!
Property was perfect, well stocked for cooking, close to St. Ives but fully enjoy
Perfectly sited so you Van enjoy St Ives but far enough away to be quite and have open space. Home was very neat, well maintained and well stocked for cooking and use. Tesco is a short walk away for food material and the Cornish arms is a short walk for good food and beer.
To be honest, this is a perfect place to stay for enjoying St Ives.
