Hope to return
Very helpful property manager. The terrace is the star of the show. It's quite exposed so we only sat out on the sunny calmer days. Great views from all the windows especially the large ones downstairs. Liked the fact that they were plane glass rather than the usual distracting 'lead' affect windows. Liked how the downstairs rooms were all open to each other. Found the Aga ovens quite tricky. The top one runs a bit too hot and the lower one too cool. I think some rooms would benefit from some redecoration or modernisation. However this in no way affected a very enjoyable stay. I think some binoculars would be a good addition. We look forward to returning.
Lovely property. Exactly as described. A little more cupboard space for food would be good. It was home from home and nothing could spoil the best views in Cornwall.
Privilege to stay here! Fabulous!
Fabulous house in amazing location. We saw pods of dolphins swim past on several days. Also the excitement of the Coastguard helicopter flying over with, I could swear, Santa waving at me from the open door of the helicopter on Christmas Day!
House was lovely and warm, and the Aga perfect to cook our Christmas goose in. The owners kindly left a nice tree and lots of goodies like mince pies, chocs etc which were much appreciated. Beds comfortable, enough bathrooms to make mornings easy.
Beautiful footpath and hiking on the doorstep.
Truly a privilege to stay in such a stunning property.
Wonderful comfortable house in a fantastic location
Three generations gathered in this lovely house for a warm Autumn week. The location could not have been better, with wide sweeping views out to sea, glorious sunsets, sails, seals and even a whale. The house was extremely comfortable and well appointed - it felt more like a home than a holiday home - and everything was included that was needed. Thank you for a wonderful week.
A fantastic week in a lovely house with views that we will all remember. We will definitely be staying at Rinsey House again!
Outstanding location, beautiful house!
Stayed with a group of 9 friends, and had the perfect week holiday. Would recommend st michaels mount for a day trip, and the two beaches on either side of the house. Also some stunning walks.
Could not recommend staying here more! Incredible location, amazing house, beautiful beaches, well cleaned and maintained, and a good price for what you get! 5*s all round, will definitely be returning.
Probably the best positioned house in South West Cornwall, located on an unspoiled stretch of coast near Porthleven; with breathtaking views to the Lizard to the east and across to Lands End to the west. The house perches on the edge of Rinsey Head and sits in grounds of approximately 30 acres making the house completely private – you feel almost like you are on your own island! Rinsey Head was built in the early twentieth century and is architecturally designed to maximise the views in every direction.
Rinsey Head is a comfortably appointed, spacious family home, which exudes a real sense of adventure; on a beautiful summer day relax on the patio and drink in the views whilst a variety of seabirds circle above or on a wild Cornish day snuggle up in the cosy living room and watch the waves crashing below.
