  • "Whilst the property and garden were very beautiful, all the signs on the walls around the house with rules on, with what to do and not do, made you feel like you were in a museum."

    There was a big book on the table with all the instructions in, i dont feel these needed to be repeated. It made us feel frightened to move. Also the fact dogs aren't allowed upstairs should be mentioned before booking.

  • "The garage is not suitable for big cars, and it says local parking available, not a chance there really"

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear you struggled with parking a bigger car at the property, there is nearby roadside parking about a 3 minute walk from the property. Property Owner

  • "The access and parking in this property is more difficult than described."

    Thank you for your comment. We are sorry to hear that you found the parking situation difficult. There is nearby roadside parking a 3 minute walk away and you can stop outside the property drive to drop off luggage when you arrive. There is also a garage at the property. We hope however that this did not impact too much upon your stay. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property."

    Yes, parking isn’t easy - we had a couple of near scrapes! (BMW 3) but if you want to just ditch the car then it’s an easy stroll to the beach and lovely local eateries.

  • "Turfrick was an amazing setting."

    We all loved the house and it was a brilliant place to be based to visit other places in Cornwall. Would highly recommend. Only downfall was the parking but the house was so great none of us were troubled too much as we just parked at the top of the hill.

  • "Cleaning needs to be addressed."

    The grill tray was dirty (cleaner when we left than arrived), items in dishwasher and just didn’t feel well cleaned (dirty under flour length curtains). Also access is a real problem (we couldn’t get our car into the drive at all) so I think this needs to be made clearer as parking in St Agnes isn’t easy!!! Arrival pack disappointing too, needs more tlc/personalisation. Great house though and loved St Agnes.

    Thank you for the comments following your stay. We’re really pleased to hear that overall you thought the house was great and enjoyed St Agnes – we do hope you had an excellent holiday. We’re sorry to learn that you experienced some cleanliness issues and are grateful for the detail. We’d like to let you know that following your stay some significant changes have been made, with new cleaners now taking responsibility for the house. We have every confidence that any cleanliness issues will now be resolved and look forward to welcoming more guests this summer. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was beautiful, very clean & had everything we required."

    The only improvement I would suggest would be another shower in the upstairs bathroom. We also had an issue with the external doors from the sitting room - the lead door opening is restricted due to the LPG tank and the paving is very uneven, this resulted in two of us spraining our ankles.

  • "Turfrick is a beautiful well appointed, ideally situated cottage and a pleasure to stay at."

    This was our first visit to Cornwall and visited many delightful places. St Agnes was an ideal base and would love to visit again .

  • "The directions to get into the property were not clear, we spent 10 mins trying to find the front door."

    Parking was not clear either, it mentioned that cars should be parked in the garage but there is no mention of the high, our vehicle did not fit and we had to find somewhere else to park. The ground floor shower needs a curtain as the bathroom floor was soaked after a shower. also the beds were very uncomfortable and Overall a nice location and modern fit out, nice to have milk and scones on arrival,

    Contacted Shoes on arrival and fault not rectified till Tuesday of stay requiring further phone call. Recycling and waste outside storage appeared not to have been emptied for weeks. Shame as cottage nice.

  • "Turfrick is a fantastic well equipped and laid out house occupying a prominent hillside position very close to several pubs and the village."

    The parking access is a little tricky though for all but the confident driver. The dogs loved it and there is a reasonable sized garden around which they can roam. The cove is a 10 min walk away but with stunning views along the coastal path. A great base for any holiday, we will be returning.

  • "Turfrick is a beautiful cottage in a great location."

    We found it to be clean, bright, extremely comfortable and very dog friendly. The garden is superb for dogs and I'm sure excellent for sitting out in. We didn't really get the opportunity to sample it as we managed to pick the one week in June that was cool and virtually sun free. The cottage is well equipped with all the white goods that you could want and had really good technology - excellent fast broadband and Sky TV. The downside to the cottage, and one that shouldn't be underestimated, is its access and especially the parking. I had read the warning about the driveway and had researched it using Google maps street view and so had a good idea of what we were going to find. However, it was really extremely tricky to park a moderately large car on the driveway. The lane to the cottage is very narrow and steep and is lined by a cottage on one side and a wall on the other. There is no way I could have parked the car by myself. The car's sensors were screaming at me to abandon any attempt but these had to be ignored and I was reliant on my wife guiding me in with often just a couple of inches of clearance. The problems are exacerbated by the neighbours parking a Transit van at the bottom of the drive. This makes manouvering into the drive even harder. Alternative parking can sometimes be found in the village but there are only about five spaces. The approach to the cottage as described on the website omits the fact that there is a narrow, steep and often slippy path to reach the steps that are mentioned. We arrived with heavy bags and suitcases and found the effort required to be pretty exhausting. We are both retired and a younger couple would probably have managed easier. So would we go back - no chance. Loved the cottage and all its amenities and location but the access issues are just too much to consider it.

The property

Quietly tucked away in the heart of this buzzing seaside village, with a good degree of privacy, Turfrick occupies a superb vantage point.

Step inside and discover a laid-back beach house style.

Accentuating the coastal feel, large picture windows bathe generous rooms with light and bi-fold doors slide open from the sitting room to the deck for an outside-in atmosphere.

Keep warm beside the fire pit on the sheltered terrace or snuggle up on deep modern sofas beside the warming glow of the wood burner with a good book from the collection provided.

The kitchen dining room is laden with good quality appliances.

There are three comfy bedrooms, a family bathroom with a luxurious tub and a separate shower room completes the accommodation.

Relax on the south-facing decked terrace and soak up the sea air, and views which swoop over rooftops towards the iconic engine house from which the property derived its name.

Forget the car and venture out on foot!

You will enjoy the luxury of the location with excellent restaurants/bars, old inns, cafes and art galleries within paces.

There is also a local bakers, butchers, greengrocers and convenience store for supplies.

Beautiful Trevaunance Cove is your playground and dogs are welcome in all seasons too!

Lifeguarded in the summer months, it is popular among families and little explorers will love the rock pools and the ice cream parlour.

A favoured haunt for surfers, there is a surf school offering tuition for all abilities and equipment hire.
