About Jayne Beards

I Live in Surrey,UK,work full time. Hope to retire to Cornwall someday!

Jayne Beards purchased this house in 2011

Why Jayne Beards chose Treburrick

I have been going to Cornwall for family holidays since I was about 8 years old,40 plus years later I still love it.

Even at my age, I still enjoy the body boarding and my family think its the best holiday ever,maybe its the simplicity that children love,they never seem to get bored,which is a real plus.I hope that my future Grand children and guests will enjoy this house for many years to come.

What makes this house unique

Great walks,beaches,body boarding, local produce & local pubs,all on your doorstep. A place to really relax & unwind..

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have recently returned from a weekend trip to Greenacres as a group of friends for a birthday celebration. Such a fantastic weekend! The house was clean, warm, spacious and generally lovely! Treburrick itself was very pretty and we had a lovely evening walk to a welcoming pub nearby and porthcothan bay was beautiful. Very close to watergate bay which was great for surfing and also the camel trail to Padstow. Jayne was a brilliant host and very helpful with any questions we had. Definitely recommend!!

HOT TUB - Lovely house,15 min walk to Porthcothan Bay
average rating of 4.8095236 based on 27 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday here as a family of eight adults and one young child. Superb accommodation - clean and comfortable and in a great location only a short 15 minute walk to the lovely Porthcothan beach. The house is very well equipped and we will definitely go back again as this holiday reminded us that when the weather is good (and it was VERY good) Cornwall is simply unbeatable and can hold its own with anywhere in the world.

Absolutely perfect location and accommodation - we would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

A truly wonderful property with everything you need for a family holiday to Cornwall. The house is clean and comfortable and we were looked after very well inc on arrival scones, jam and clotted cream. It's so so spacious and caters for all ages with board games, films, outdoor games. The hot tub was pure luxury after a busy day at the beach/cycling. The local beach is one of the best we've been to in Cornwall, very natural and unspoilt and the scenery from the cliff top and Bedruthan steps is stunning. We would recommend the Camel trail bike ride in Padstow- again beautiful scenery and great fun! Other beaches we went to (all a short car ride away) Constantine Bay, Mawgan Porth (nice restaurant opposite) and Lusty Glaze near Newquay which had a fab restaurant on the beach and caves that you'll remember forever- my grand daughter thought it was magical! It has been a holiday that I will cherish forever and we will definitely be going back. I would highly recommend Greenacres for a large family/group!

Big house in a good location

  • 4 of 5

We were a family group of 9 people - plenty of space for all of us to enjoy eating and relaxing together but also plenty of space to do our own things. Lovely garden, warm comfy house with everything we needed.

Easy to drive to the lovely local beaches.

Easy and efficient communication with the owner throughout.

Beautiful large property in great location

  • 5 of 5

Greenacres was absolutely perfect for our stay having plenty of room for 3 couples and all of our children. It was clean and spacious and had pretty much everything you'll need to make a perfect base for a stay in this lovely part of Cornwall. The layout of the house really suited us with a nice quiet twin room downstairs for the grandparents and then 2 doubles, a twin, and a children's room upstairs. All upstairs rooms were en-suite too meaning you never had to wait for the bathroom to be free!

The closest beach, Porthcothan Bay, is great and has a small shop. However, at busy times parking is limited. We didn't attempt to walk however as the walk didn't seem suitable for young kids.

Wadebridge is a short drive away with plenty of shops and other things to do. We particularly enjoyed cycling the Camel Trail to Padstow which is highly recommended. There are plenty of beaches nearby to choose from but these also get busy in the summer holidays. We couldn't get to Mawgan Porth as the car park was full by mid-morning but Watergate Bay was just a few minutes further on and was great.

I would recommend Greenacres for large families or groups looking for a base close to Wadebridge, Padstow and Newquay but away from the busy touristy areas. Jayne, the owner, was very helpful and spoke to me at length about the area. We'd definitely come back again.

Perfect Cornish Family Home

  • 5 of 5

Family of nine including three children, stayed in August 2017. We had a wonderful time. Property was perfect for us, big enough for us all to have our own space and not be on top of each other. Bedroom spaces are huge and helped with each having their own bathroom. Location rural so you will need car to get out and about even for essentials, however, on saying that, location was perfect as a base for exploring Cornwall with Padstow and Newquay within 15 minutes. We certainly made the most of it and went to Lands End, Port Isaac and Tintagel Castle. Clean and catered for all our needs, thank you Jayne.

A fantastic, well located and well appointed house.

  • 5 of 5

We love Porthcothan and this part of Cornwall and to find somewhere so well located was in itself a major coup. For the property to also be so well appointed was a massive bonus. We were two families sharing and there was plenty of room for all of us to chill out, watch TV, eat dinner and also to find some space at the same time. The bedrooms are all large and airy and well decorated and tastefully furnished with lovely ensuites. Pretty much the only thing we found any fault with was the wifi coverage - not great and not fast enough for teenagers. Other than that I have no hesitation in recommending the property and will certainly be looking at this house the next time we come to Cornwall.
