  • "The owners were proactive & emailed useful information before our holiday, they also sent a text message on our arrival day which was much appreciated The nearest beach is too far to walk with children & there is no path on the small & windy road so you do really need to drive."

    The kitchen was well equipped, but the bottom draw of the freezer was difficult to push back in because of the ice underneath. The ensuite shower water pressure was low & the temperature was irratic. There is a piece of metal pertruding in the garden which we noticed after the grass was cut. We did report both these issues to the owners so I am sure they will be rectified. Overall we throughly enjoyed our stay, the property has plenty of room for a family of 7, & having a big garden was definitely beneficial. There is plenty to do & there are some really nice beaches to choose from.

  • "Auvergne is a lovely spacious property especially for a large family ot two families to share."

    Its very clean and very well maintained. The garden is ideal for sitting out in. Closest beaches are excellent. Already booked for 2023, this will be our third stay here.

  • "Everything was in good order and working as it should."

    Only issue was that one of the settees in the lounge was very low indeed and for my wife and I (both over 70 and with poorly backs) it was a mission to get up and down. It was the one in front of the log fire which given the time of year was where we wanted to sit and be cosy in the evenings. Otherwise everything was great and a super base to explore the surrounding area.

  • "Lovely clean, comfortable house."

    Can't believe how nice it was!! It had everything we needed plus some. Dining area in the conservatory which was very pleasant to sit it. The living room was delightful and the garden was absolutely lush. Nice area to visit. A lovely walk from the holiday home to Millook Haven. This is one of the very best holiday homes we have stayed in and we've stayed in many!! Can't recommend enough.

  • "The whole family loved our stay."

    The house was spacious and we didn't feel cramped at all, also lovely and light. Plenty of outside space for four very active grandchildren, who loved the garden and watching the rabbits who came into the garden every morning and watching the sheep in the field behind the garden. The garden has enough space for a gentle kick about with a ball which the children loved, plenty of car parking on the driveway. The area is very quite with some really lovely gentle walks locally. The beaches, which are very good are no more than about ten minutes drive away with restaurants and toilets, eccentrical with small children. We especially loved Summerleaze beach in Bude, huge beach with seawater swimming pool, also lovely little rock pools on the beach for the very small members of the family, even some of the older members of the family! Would go again anytime. Thanks to the very helpful owners.

A bright and contemporary property, Auverne enjoys a lovely position in the small village of Poundstock, near the Cornish coast.

An open-plan living space stretching the length of the property makes wonderful use of the space; soak up the abundance of light within the dining area thanks to the conservatory glass roof and windows, it is a wonderful setting to enjoy a family meal, flooding in light even on a rare dull day.

Move into the sitting area and rest on one of the two large sofas, feeling warmed by the woodburning stove as you relax watching a Netflix film on the Smart TV.

The kitchen offers beautiful views out to the garden and the fields beyond, and includes an electric oven, induction hob and a dishwasher.

The ground floor hosts three of the four bedrooms, including a master double with en-suite.
