Well equipped, beautiful cottage in great location. Friendly hosts.
Our 2nd summer holiday here with our 10 year old daughter, a great location ideal for spending long days on Porth Beach. A home from home, comfy beds, great HD TB and improved Wi-Fi, and a relaxing stay.
Such a lovely place would definitely recommend
We have stayed at The Stables By The Sea now 6 times, and each time we have enjoyed our stay, in all seasons of the year. There is nothing that is too much trouble for the owners, Tracey & John. The accommodation is always spotlessly clean, everything from the crisp white bedlinen and towels, the comfortable 6ft bed, the vase of fresh flowers to the fresh eggs, milk, cornish butter, to fresh large loaf of bread, the fresh scones, jam and clotted cream. Everything is done to a very high standard and makes us feel welcome, regardless of the number of times we have visited. I cannot recommend The Stables highly enough.
This was an excellent holiday cottage with all the amenities we needed, including very good WiFi. The beach was a brief walk away and there were lovely cliff walks and views. On site parking was very convenient indeed. The location was very good for driving to Cornwall's tourist attractions, e.g. Eden Project, St Mawes, Pendennis, St Michael's Mount and others. Highly recommended.
Lovely well-equipped cottage in a stunning setting!
Thanks, for this wonderfull week. The best Cottage ever!!!
We had a perfect stay here! The owners are really friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location is idyllic with the beach less than a minute away, and scenic walks in all directions. We travelled as a couple with our 10 month old daughter and the cottage was ideal for us; plenty of space for our baby to crawl around, as well as separate space for her to sleep and us to relax and have dinner. Highly recommend - we will be back!
Stayed here twice now, lovely cottage and superb location. Would highly recommend.
Our stay January, 2020
