The location is great: just uphill from the beach, with the ability to check the surf from the main bedroom and living room. Sofas were comfy and the shower was good. The outside tap and garage were useful for beach gear and we loved the bunnies on the lawn each day. There was no washing up liquid. Not a problem for us as we brought our own, but it seemed like the previous visitors had not left some kitchen items that clean as a result. A few things would benefit from some updating but for the price we paid we didn't mind. Thank you for your kind comments, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Property Owner Reviewed by Clive5.0★Sep 2023 "Property was nice, facilities were brilliant, spare batteries for the TV remote were much needed on day 3 as remote became stubborn." The back Bedroom Wardrobe RH Hinge was broken upon arrival, so didn't use that door during our stay. Having an additional fridge / Freezer in the garage was super useful, as was the exercise bike. Ran out out Black Bin Bags it appeared, so had to buy some. Beds were soft and no complaints. Front Windows were grubby which spoiled the nice view, but the wife give them a once over. One lounger chair has a Nut missing on the Bolt, just needed to make sure the bolt was in the hole as we used these most evenings. Everything else was found to be above standards and we enjoyed our stay. The games in the footstools were a surprise to find and the grandkids used them a few times. Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back anytime in the future. We have reported the issues raised to our maintenance team so thank you for making us aware! - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner Reviewed by Barry4.4★Aug 2023 "Lovely cottage very well equipped and fabulous location." Gorgeous views. Comfortable. A little tricky to find as we hadn’t realised it was tucked back down its own drive (and didn’t look as blue as in the photos). Like many holiday cottages, no curtains and the blinds barely block out any light so it’s lucky we always take extra blackouts with us. We loved the rabbits on the front lawn! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the cottage, and that it suited your needs. Thank you for your comments, all feedback is shared with the owner - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner Reviewed by Caroline3.8★Aug 2023 "Everything was as expected." Just waiting to receive our deposit back in full as we cleaned it very thoroughly. Reviewed by Julia5.0★Sep 2021 "Very comfortable stay at Hillview." Marvellous beach for families. Our grandchildren loved the rock pools and sea. However very expensive take away food and long queues due to the huge number of visitors. Also find having to put recycling in the general landfill outrageous due to there not being any provision for recycling collections from holiday homes in North Cornwall.
