  • "An amazing property in a fantastic location, would highly recommend."

    Close walk, 3/4 minutes to two lovely small beaches perfect for families. Coastal path walks to Pentewan and mevagissey and the other direction to Carlyon, Par and Fowey. Ten minute walk into the beautiful harbour at Charlestown and half an hour into st Austell to the lovely brewery and railway station. Close to three major supermarkets and takeaways , if not eating out, but there are some great pub’s and restaurants in Charlestown harbour, perfect place to stay. Robin Hill we will be back ! The owners were also very accommodating with an issue we had prior to travel, can’t thank them enough in helping us out.

    Extremely well maintained. Hosts / owners are available via text or email. Would suggest the email provided once booked you do make contact to owner before travelling.

    Thank you Jo for giving Robin Hill a 100% score. It's lovely to hear that you had a great week. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week at Robin Hill."

    We found the bungalow very nicely decorated and furnished with a lovely garden and kitchen well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Very comfortable beds although a little small but we are use to King size. This is a very quiet area, close to a small beach but we also enjoyed a day out somewhere different every day. Healey’s Cyder farm well worth a visit. It was still a bit cold whilst we was away and the heating is controlled by the owner, however a quick email was all that was needed to make it warmer. Will definitely be returning

    Thanks for your positive feedback Donna, we're pleased to hear you had a good time, despite some wet April weather. We've not heard of Healey’s Cyder farm, so we'll be sure to visit ourselves when we are next at Robin Hill. Property Owner

  • "Our 2nd time visiting Robin Hill and we absolutely love it here."

    The cottage is perfect and has everything you need. There is plenty of space for our two kids (age 12 and 16) and our two dogs who are also very happy here. The beach is lovely , great for swimming ! plenty of walks. We visited the nearby Eden Project this year and the Adrenalin quarry, both great. Hopefully we will make it our 3rd time visiting next year, we are just deciding if we prefer it not as busy in October or wiling to brave the busier summer holidays! Either way the location and property is wonderful !

    Thank you for your positive feedback Wayne - It's great to hear that you enjoyed your second visit to Robin Hill, the beaches and the Eden Project & Adrenalin Quarry. It's wonderful when we have people coming back and enjoying multiple stays at Robin Hill. Property Owner

  • "Robin Hill is a great house with lots of spaces."

    ( two sitting rooms ) And a large enclosed garden. But I do feel parts need updating, especially both bathrooms and areas of flooring .

    Thanks Pat for your feedback. We are always working on improving Robin Hill and for example, will be stripping out and replacing the ensuite during the Winter of 2022. Property Owner

  • "When we walked in the cottage we were blown away it looked beautiful."

    The kitchen, dining room, and lounges especially the bay window overlooking the bay. As the weather changed and we found that the bathroom and on suit were damp the radiators did not come on and we had trouble drying towels and the loo rolls were always damp. We now realise we could have emailed the owner but they were on holiday in Mexico. I went to hoover the cottage and it didn’t pick up anything we took the head apart and it was completely blocked, hair and dirt and fluff. I cleaned it out and it worked perfectly. Perhaps the next people in the cottage got a cleaner one than we did. The other problem was the sensors that activated the lights in the hall and dining room we found a nuisance..

    had a bit of trouble opening some of windows locks seemed stuck .

    Thanks for your feedback Lynne, I've checked all the windows and they do all open, but there are two different keys. I imagine the August heatwave has caused them to get a lot of use now. Best wishes Property Owner

  • "A lovely holiday was had in St Austell."

    The fairly steep location of the cottage did not allow us to walk safely with children and dogs down to the beach. It’s a narrow, windy road with lots of through traffic. A car is a must. Porthpean beach was nice and very safe; however the water activity hut opened once during our 7 day stay and we never saw the cafe open which was disappointing. . Porthpewan Beach was really nice and the activities there were fab! The cottage itself allows easy access with a car to many other places. It was a good size and the bedrooms were all comfortable. Lots of home from home items making it easy to self cater. A refurb has been carried out to modernise the cottage but only to part of it, meaning it’s a little dated in parts. The garden was well kept and allowed a great outdoor space for the children.

  • "A wonderful house in a perfect location."

    The house is in Porthpean, which is away from the main tourist spots and so even in July it was relatively quiet and peaceful. The house itself is spacious and comfortable. Just perfect for an old fashioned family holiday.
