Why Shona Blake chose Saint Austell Bay

We chose the cottage because we fell in love with the view! When we drove in at the top of the drive we said to one another that the cottage was going to have to be falling down for us to not want to buy with a view like that.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has to have one of the best views in Cornwall. Even the very expensive houses in Carlyon Bay don't have as good a view of St Austell Bay. Now that our boys are growing up and playing golf, the benefit of having a golf course on our doorstep is huge, and the course is great. It's effectively both a parkland and links course, with 9 holes of each!

Just what we wanted over the Christmas period

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice and clean and was extremely well fitted out. What would be useful would be an instruction booklet for the Induction Hob. The weather was not good but the views over the bay were impressive.

Well appointed, easy to use, comfortable beds and a gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. We enjoyed kayaking, walking and exploring further around the Cornish coast. It is not far from the shops if needed, nor main routes further west or east. Saying that you definitely feel like you are away from the ratrace.

  • 5 of 5

Gribben View is such a homely and well designed cottage. It's. Great base to explore the St Austell area. Me and my husband works love to come back for a relaxing week for the two of us. Our kids loved the property and enjoyed the surrounding area.

Perfect location to explore Cornwall

  • 4 of 5

An impressive view and so quiet and peaceful. When the weather is good it is nice to sit outside and gaze at the sea. Even when the weather is not so good it is nice to sit inside and gaze at the sea! The cottage is the perfect size for two on holiday with all the home comforts. However, we did experience a few problems:- There was a major ant problem around the patio doors and a few in the kitchen which we hoovered up for a few days, the property description said that towels were included but there were none, so we had to buy some, and we couldn't find the heating thermostat so we were cold. Apart from that it was the perfect location for exploring. We visited the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, St. Michael's Mount, Lands End, Port Isaac, Fowey to name a few.

I would recommend this property and once the problems have been solved it will be idyllic.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry that you encountered problems with our cottage. It's a pity that you did not use any of the available contacts as all of these problems could have been solved while you were there to stop them spoiling your enjoyment of our cottage. We hope that you did enjoy Cornwall.

1 mile from the main road through St Austell, Gribben View is located above the 17th fairway of Porthpean golf course, giving amazing panoramic views of St Austell Bay and the Gribben peninsula. Close to Porthpean beach and several other south coast beaches but also convenient for north coast beaches and most of Cornwall's tourist attractions.
