The location of Gulls Cry is amazing - just a very short path and you are on the beach with lots of sand, caves and rock pools! It didn't matter if you forgot anything as it was so quick to nip back to the house. As others have said, there is a narrow lane to the property but our Citroen Picasso coped fine with it. The property was a very good size - we had 8 members of our extended family staying so used the extra bed settee as well, however nobody got in each other's way. The living room is separate from the kitchen which was a big bonus for us as our youngest children could sit and draw/play at the table when they woke early without waking the adults sleeping in the living room. The fact that there is a fully equipped on-suite bathroom as well as the family bathroom mean't that there was no queuing either. We had a slight problem with the shower being blocked by sand when we arrived, but the owners sorted it immediately and it was absolutely fine for the duration of the holiday. The property was very well equipped - we could all sit around the table in the kitchen and didn't run out of pans/crockery even though there were 8 of us. Most of the property is tiled or wood flooring which was very useful in terms of clearing up sand. Being so close to the beach, meant we brought back lots of sand, but it wasn't an issue to clean up. As is common in much of coastal Cornwall, the phone reception in Portreath is pretty dire, but the wifi connection speed was six times better than our village one at home !!
Overall, we couldn't fault anything with the property. The property is on a steep hill though with lots of steps up, so if you have walking difficulties you might struggle, but that wasn't a problem for us.The friendly owners live next door and are on hand to help you sort out the parking or any problems, but are not intrusive. I think we would struggle to find a property in such a good setting again and we shall definitely be booking for next year! I've already recommended a close friend who has made a booking for the adjacent bungalow later this season!!
