  • "Beautiful, comfortable and spotlessly clean holiday cottage."

    Plenty of comfortable living space for 6 adults. In a perfect location, very close to 2 lovely beaches. If you wanted a holiday in a quiet, relaxing location you couldn't ask for anything more. With lots of amenities close by, if you need them. Absolutely fantastic holiday.

    Thank you Sharon, for your lovely description of Robin Hill and more importantly saying that you enjoyed your time there and in Cornwall. 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.
