  • "Wow what an amazing place."

    Everything you could need, so well equipped. The balcony with sea views and close proximity to the beach is just incredible. Your accommodation is so welcoming for dogs with all the little added extras for them. Our cream tea together with the doggie treats was a lovely welcome surprise. Thank you so much for a super week's stay.

  • "The property is perfectly placed I'm a quiet village overlooking the sea."

    The property itself is well equipped, and the host has thought of everything that guests might need or want. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the place is cosy and modern. It was my first trip to Cornwall and I thoroughly enjoyed it, as did Maddie the sausage dog and the in-laws. Would reconnect to anyone.

  • "The apartment is beautifully appointed and equipped with the additional benefit of far reaching sea views."

    It was so sheltered that we were able to sit on the balcony on several occasions in February. My first holiday rental where we had very comfortable beds and sofas, so welcome after long walks! We had one random equipment failure but the friendly owner was on the case to rectify it immediately, plenty of communication, excellent electricians and many unnecessary apologies, these things happen as every home owner knows. Nice welcome pack for us and the dog. Thoroughly recommend The Bolt Hole.

  • "The property was warm and cosy , with great sea views so was perfect for a winter break."

    Every detail has been thought of by the owners including a welcome cream tea and treats for the dog! Crisp white bed linen, power showers and fluffy towels , just like you might find in a boutique hotel. The kitchen is very well equipped and includes large fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The extractor fan wasn't great at getting did of cooking smells so maybe the filters need changing? We had a fantastic week and have already recommended The Bolt Hole to friends and family.

  • "The Bolt hole was a real home from home."

    It was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed. The Bolt hole was immaculately clean and very welcoming, a cream tea waiting for us and extras for our dog. It was perfectly positioned, with pubs and restaurants a few minutes walk away. The beach was so close and everyone was very friendly to us and our dog. A perfect place to stay while exploring Cornwall. We would highly recommend and will definitely return.
