  • "Excellent property."

    Very well equipped - the owners have thought of everything. Comfy beds. Great location for exploring this area of Cornwall. We’ll definitely be visiting again.

  • "We really enjoyed our recent stay, the actual home looked better than the pictures even though I didn't think that was possible."

    It was well equipped, the kitchen had everything you could possibly think of. The hot tub is a great touch too, lovely for relaxing after a day exploring. It is a very short drive from Perenporth which we visited a lot during our stay. The information guide was fab, a real personal touch to tell us about the history of the home & furnishings as well as need to know phone numbers, takeaway details and leaflets on things to do. I would definitely give this home a 10/10

  • "Meadowside is a lovely property with lots of space and a lovely big back garden (added bonus of the hot tub!"

    ). We found the house to be very accomodating with everything we needed throughout our stay including a very thoughtful £20 voucher to use at the local shop & some fresh flowers!! The only bit of neutral feedback i would give is, we found the beds in both the upstairs master bedroom and the downstairs double room very hard. Whilst this maybe great for some, both our families found it difficult to get a good nights sleep. Maybe a nice mattress topper could resolve this issue? During our weeks stay we had excellent weather and whilst the front of the property seemed to stay nice & cool, the conservatory at the rear was very hot and there were no blinds to be able to block the sun out, so we found that we could not use that room most of the time, which is a shame as it looks over the beautiful back garden. The house is a 5 minute walk to the New Inn Pub/restaurant in the village,which was lovely & a 10 (if that) minute drive into Perranporth which was ideal! All in all we had a wonderful stay and would deffinatley reccomend the house to somebody else! Thank you Amanda!

    So well equiped with good quality fixtures, fittings and equipment. Pictures are what you see is what you get. The whole house is so large. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner, who answered questions by text immediately. We can thoroughly recommend Meadowside.

  • "Just the beds could be better not very comfortable/hard."

    Gill, Thank you for taking the time to comment, and I am sorry that you did not find comfort. Comfort in particular with beds is a very individual to everyone and it is very difficult to cater for different individual needs. Whilst you did not find the beds comfortable for your needs we have had lots of positive comments about the comfort of the beds. They are all of medium softness and we have both memory foam and sprung mattresses in different bedrooms so guests do have some choice. The mattresses that we have were all as advised by a major bed company as being able to offer the best comfort for most guests. Amanda and David Property Owner

  • "Amazing property, plenty of space; all rooms are very spacious and although we were a group of 4, it can easily accommodate 8 (with enough space to hide if needed)."

    All rooms were well equiped especially the kitchen. All the showers performed well and the beds were comfortable. The village pub is good, with great food and the local store / garden center provides good fresh produce (the garden center has a fruit and veg shop + restaurant). Well served by a bus route that goes to Perranporth / Truro and Newquay (The only thing I would say that goes against the listing was that the hot tub is overlooked from one side). One more thing, the house has lovely hosts that take care of the hot tub and obviously have a great deal of love for the property

    The listing of the property doesn't actually do it justice, it far outweighed our expectations. The arrival to fresh milk in the fridge and tea/coffee meant we could have a nice drink before getting ourselves unpa ked after a long drive.

  • "I have just spent the most incredible week at Meadowside in the Cornish sunshine."

    A group of us who are long time friends all met at Meadowside for a week of fun and reminiscing and the property was absolutely perfect for us. We had plenty of space for us all and the garden was stunning, we particularly enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and sitting outside with a glass of wine in the sunshine. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and was equipped with everything we could possibly need. We felt very welcomed at Meadowside and were greeted with lovely fresh flowers and a voucher for the local shop, which really is the best local shop I've come across! The location of this property is perfect for exploring Cornwall, it's close to many beaches such as Perranporth, Crantock and Newquay. We also visited the stunning towns of St Ives and Padstow which really aren't far away. There is a lovely local pub across the road which offered great food and entertainment. I would highly recommend Meadowside and we'll certainly be visiting again. Thank you to the owners Amanda and David, we all had a fantastic holiday.

  • "We had an amazing stay at Meadowside."

    The property is the most well appointed we have ever stayed in and was spotless; we were particularly taken with the Neff appliances! There was a welcome gift left which was a lovely surprise to find along with milk in the fridge. The children loved the gardens and the addition of the hot tub made their week. The property gave us space to mix and spread out alike. It is perfectly located for Perranporth beach and other local attractions but still quiet. Local amenities were spot on with a playground for the children, a lovely local shop and a pub that served amazing food. My only disappointment is that upon returning home to rebook for the same time next year the week had already gone! I have no doubt that we will be back at some point in the future at some point.

  • "Easily one of the nicest, most well-equipped properties we've stayed in the UK."

    The kitchen especially had all the pots, pans and accessories that we needed to make the most out of a self-catered holiday. The hot tub was also a lovely bonus to soak in after a long day of walking around the coast. The house was well located for us to travel to some very good beaches and places to visit and was very reasonably priced for the size and standard. Would definitely book again in the future if we visit Cornwall again. My only minor complaint was the front bedroom (near the front door) was uncomfortably warm all the time, like the heating was permanently turned on in it.

  • "Overall a really good stay and we were really comfortable in the property."

    We had a couple of small issues when we first checked in - the upstairs electrics had tripped and the underfloor heating was set too warm for our liking. Once notified, the owners came across quickly to resolve. However we didn't really master the heating and the downstairs rooms remained very warm through the stay. The property is really well appointed with lots of kitchen equipment, board games etc and is very spacious and comfortable. My once slight disappointment was that the log burner wasn't usable - as this was something we had specifically searched for. Overall cleanliness was very good, although we did find some hair from the previous occupants on one of the bedroom carpets and tablecloth. Overall a really good stay and I would recommend

    Dean thank you for your feedback and your concerns have been duly noted. Regarding the heating we were more than happy if you had called us to adjust the heating. Help was on hand just next door. I am unsure why you had any problem with the wood burner as it is fully functioning, and again we would have willingly attended to help you. Logs, kindling, firelighters and lighter were all available for you to use. Amanda and David Property Owner

All cleaning products provided made life easy and arranged a shopping delivery for the day of arrival which I would recommend as it is quite hard to get tables booked for dinner at the moment and it is a pleasure to prepare a meal in such a well equipped kitchen.

The local Blue Hills museum and Perranzabuloe Folk Museum are both well worth a visit to understand the rich heritage of this coastal area. Further afield are the miles of sandy beaches at Crantock and Holywell Bay and the breathtaking coastal walks around St Agnes, much of it owned by the National Trust. For a greater selection of nightlife, restaurants and attractions, why not head for the coastal resort of Newquay (6 miles) Newquay is famed for its world-class surfing and has something for every taste and age including the popular Zoo, Waterworld indoor pool and the Blue Reef Aquarium.
