  • "Lovely and very well equipped house."

    Everything is a very high standard. Enjoyed the location and really friendly in the local pub. Great location for exploring but lovely beaches on your doorstep. The garden is nice and perfect if you have a dog as really secure. Very enjoyable break.

  • "The best cottage we have ever stayed in!"

    Warm, comfortable, so well equipped. Spotlessly clean and well maintained, nothing was lacking. Great location, walking distance to the beach and the local pub - which we can recommend! And so many great beaches and cliff walks just a short drive away. We’ve booked for next year!

  • "This bungalow is a 5 star property in a great location, with the Treguth Inn with in easy walking distance and a fantastic beach just a little bit further, its just great."

    Being so close to the costal path there's miles to walk or just rest up on the beach, its up to you. Your return walk back is uphill quite steep in places but the walk saves you the parking fees £10 a day, so yes worth the walk. We did have a problem when we arrived as the property needed cleaning which my wife did [against my wishes, as I was going to ask the owner to come and do it], There was finger nails on the table near the Ipod player, and black mould in the walk in shower, dog hair on the bed spread. After running the hover round it needed emptying, so that hadn't been used recently. Giving the recently covid conditions Id expected better So in hindsight yes a great property in a fantastic location but needs some TLC and a good clean weekly

    I am so sorry the cleaner and management company didn't clean the property properly. This hasn't happened before. We have spoken to ensure this never happens again. We will speak to Sykes as all guests are not allowed dogs in bedrooms. We will ensure this also doesn't happen again and if it does the cleaner is to report it to me, Management Company and Sykes to get it rectified asap. Unfortunately most coastal areas in Cornwall are hilly and walks to the beaches involve a small hill.nd wa The Owner. Property Owner

  • "Lovely quiet location perfect base for walking with our two spaniels."

    Very cosy and comfortable as we stayed in autumn. Everything you could think of was there.... beautifully decorated. Spacious too just wish we could have enjoyed the large enclosed garden more but it was too cold. Friendly neighbourhood. Would love to return.

  • "Second stay at this wonderful home, the house was spotless and so comfortable, we thought as it had been so busy following lockdown that the house might be looking a little tired but it was just as amazing as the last time we stayed there, absolutely stunning."

    The location was perfect, such a beautiful beach just down the road. Super friendly neighbours. Many many thanks!

  • "The property we stayed in was absolutely fabulous and we thought the details on the website did not do it justice!"

    It was so well fitted/kitted out there was nothing other than clothes to pack. Would we stay here again, absolutely as the decor, comfort and quality of everything was first class. The cleanliness on arrival was also excellent and we can truly say that this was the best property we have stayed in Cornwall in and would very much like to return here!

  • "They say first impressions count and Hollywell Bay View certainly lived up to the pictures and the description."

    The property was much bigger than we expected with 3 bathrooms in total one for each bedroom. The property is furnished to a high standard and was very clean and presentable. The garden was large with 3 seating areas, all potential sun traps and plenty of room for the dog to run around. The only downside, was that there was no space in any of the kitchen cupboards to put any cereals, tins etc, it all had to be left out on the work top. Fortunately there was only the two of us and the dog, for larger groups this would a potential problem in our opinion. We would certainly book again, and hope that future users will treat it with respect, so that it continues to impress.

  • "Great location and views."

    Spacious accommodation. Driveway was long enough for the three cars we had. Nice welcome pack for both dog and humans, in the form of dog treats and scones jam and cream. Very helpful gardener/neighbour. Also good phone support from Lisa at Beaches Property Services. Unfortunately, the outside light next to the key safe is permanently turned off, so a torch or mobile phone light is needed late at night to help with key safe access. Overall, we were very pleased with this holiday choice.

About the location


Cubert 1 mile; Newquay 5 miles; Perranporth 5.5 miles; Truro 12 miles; Padstow 18 miles.

Holywell Bay is a sleepy seaside village on the north Cornwall coast, boasting a fabulous beach with stunning dunes and an abundance of small streams and rock pools for the children to explore. Exposed to Atlantic swells, the beach is also popular with surfers and body boarders. Two of Holywell Bay’s most interesting features are the twin rocks just off the coast, known as Gull Rocks or Carter’s Rocks. The village has a selection of shops and pubs, whilst a mile away the village of Cubert has a Post Office, stores, bakery and cafe, village pub and restaurant. Just five miles away is Newquay, the home of the UK’s surf scene, boasting three major beaches, the National Surf Centre and an endless supply of rolling surf, making it a watersports paradise! The town, with its shopping centre, zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. If you seek more, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches. The quaint harbour and fishing village of Padstow is just 18 miles away, while Truro, with its museums, cathedral, restaurants and cobbled streets, as well as the Eden Project, can be reached in half an hour. The perfect base for touring this part of Cornwall.
