    Hi Barry sorry to hear about your car, most of the Cornish fishing villages suffer with tight space and big cars do struggle we hope it wasn’t too bad and that we may see you again. Regards Martin & Alison Beese Property Owner

  • "Loved our stay in Beehive cottage."

    Every need was catered for. We were lucky with the weather so it was great to have a garden and a bbq to use. A big added bonus was the garage/parking. A rarity in Port isaac especially when so close to the sea. Lovely and clean and the beds were so comfortable. Perfect for a memorable family holiday. We've been coming to Port Isaac for many years and this is by far the best home we've stayed in.

    Thank you Darren for your very kind words about the Beehive it means a lot to us that we are able to share it with people who get the same buzz as we do from being right at the heart of the beautiful village that is Port Isaac, the alfresco dining patio and bbq are new this year so also glad you were able to make the most of all the facilities.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Beehive cottage but this is our 2nd visit to Cornwall to properties managed by John Bray and on both occasions the levels of cleanliness and supply of basic supplies has been poor."

    Last year we fed back and received what appeared to be a generic response. This year we read reviews in advance and in one particular one it was mentioned that no toilet rolls had been supplied, a basic requirement one would think. But similarly we found the same issue, so clearly you as agents had not taken action following the review. Again it was the same last year. This, along with one bin bag, 2 dishwasher tabs, dirty outside area (simple sweep required) and general cleanliness at a low standard, are not good enough to be honest. Also your representative arrived at the property bang on 4 pm to do the pre let check at the same time as we arrived at the property and simply said she would not check the property as we had arrived and 'it is usually OK'. We have stayed in many UK holiday accommodations and I would say your standards are low and need improving.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback from your stay at Beehive Cottage. We have since spoken on the phone about the issues raised. We are sorry the cleaning standards were not as you or we would expect. We should be providing basic starter packs (a toilet roll for each bathroom, a couple of dishwasher tablets and bin bags) so are sorry this did not meet your needs. We have passed your comments to the housekeeping team who will raise it with the cleaning company. We do hope that we get the opportunity to welcome you back to Cornwall in the future.

    Clearer instructions re parking and getting to the parking would've been helpful. They also forgot to stock up with loo rolls. We had a delightful time.

    Hi Kathryn please on behalf of the John Bray cleaning team accept our apologies regarding the absence of loo roles,,, we had one job,,,, looking at your very kind scores it hopefully didn’t take too much shine off your stay at the Beehive. Regards Martin Beese Property Owner

  • "I loved Beehive Cottage."

    It had everything I needed for my weeks stay. The garage was an added bonus, just taking a couple of times to really get the hang of the space, but was really useful. I had a MINI Countryman which I’d say is the largest sized car you’d want to attempt to park in. The garden was a beautiful space to chill in when I was done with exploring for the day. Inside, the main bedroom was super comfy and light and airy, with a lovely view. I’m funny about beds, and this one I slept in like a brick…unusual for me! Going to sleep listening to the waves was magical. The kitchen and living space was practical and clean. I would definitely love to return. It was my first time using Sykes Holidays/John Bray and the one bit of advice I’d give would be to arrange for a welcome pack; just something nice and practical to greet you to your holiday after a long drive. It would really add that touch of a warm welcome and personally I really noticed it’s absence having had something at all other companies I’ve used over the years. Other than that it suited my every need and I’m likely to book it again in the future. Nikki x

    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 will suggest the addition of a welcome pack to the owners for future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

    Getting in and out of the property with a car was challenging at times. We also felt that certain areas eg. The shower room could have been cleaner.

    Hi Pauline unfortunately we can’t do much about the narrow streets and access around the old part of the fishing village admittedly one has to be careful, we can though pick up with John. Bray on your behalf with regards to the cleanliness of the bathroom and ask them to return to their usual very high standards, thanks for the feedback. Regards Martin Beese. Property Owner

    The facilities were outstanding, and the owners have clearly thought of everything to give their guests the best time in the property. Even before hand the owners contacted us to make us feel welcome in addition to John Brays communications. On arrival all the instructions were perfect, the garage was an added bonus, we have a Kia Sportage and it had adequate room. Ease of access to the property and location is fantastic.

    Well looked after by the owners, the only thing it is lacking is an umbrella on the garden table. It is also is in a good position in the village with its own parking. We liked it so much that we have already booked a week for 2023.

  • "Wonderful cottage in a perfect location."

    Just returned from a week at Beehive Cottage and it was one of the nicest UK breaks we have been on. The cottage was lovely and well equipped, had everything we needed. The garden is much nicer than we expected as there are no pictures of it, but there should be as it's really nice and we sat out there most evenings. From the description you also don't realise that when you go out of the cottage, the view is spectacular and there really ahould be some pictures of this as well. We would definitely return. Port Isaac is a stunning place and this cottage is perfect to explore this region. My only criticism would be the instructions on how to get to the cottage. We misunderstood and tried to access it from the wrong end of the coastal path resulting in my husband scratching the front wing of the car as it's too narrow. Not the best start to the holiday, but it was OK once we got in the garden and opened a bottle of wine! Once we explored, we realised you access the garages by coming through the coastal car park, opening a barrier that says private road and the narrow entrance it tries to explain on the instructions is like a small underpass under some apartments, not the footpath on the coastal path from the other end near the front of the cottage. We did ask the neighbour, but she's clearly sick of tourists and simply pointed to the way we ended up trying to go! The garage is super tight- we've got a Jag and it only just fitted. We did say we should have brought the mini as it would have been much easier, but then we couldn't have fitted everything we brought in that or had a comfortable 6 hour drive! Anyway perfect holiday, just needs clearer instructions on how to get your car in and be aware that the seagulls will steal your bacon butty if you leave it unattended in the garden!

  • "We have been to Port Isaac before and loved the very central location of this splendid little cottage."

    We love walking and walked straight out of the door and within a few steps we were on the Cornwall coastal path. There are some splendid pubs like the Golden Lion in Port Isaac and a lovely little pub in Port Gaverne within easy walking distance, good restaurants from the top priced but fabulous experience of Nathan Outlaws to the excellent Old School House and a few more cafe/restaurants too!. Excellent pasty shop towards the harbour. The Beehive has just about everything you need for a comfortable stay. The master bedroom is a good size with a birds eye view over the harbour towards Doc Martins fictional surgery. The stairs are a little steep but manageable and gives the ascent to bed some historic character and they are manageable. Kitchen was well equipped and the shower was excellent. Television was perfect, great picture and lots of channel choice. Garage parking is very welcome in Port Isaac. The garage entry approach becomes a knack after a day or so and we managed to park a Qashqai in there without much fuss. Terrific vacation and we look forward to returning again one day!

    Thank you for your great feedback Dianne, we are so glad you enjoyed all that Port Isaac and the surrounding towns/villages has to offer and even more pleased that you liked the Beehive Cottage too. We try to keep it as fresh and new as possible this year we have added the Cornish slate patio area and the family table and chairs and new gas BBQ for a bit of Alfresco dinning,, hope to see you again sometime. regards Martin & Alison Beese Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved our week's stay at Beehive Cottage over New Year!"

    There were three of us plus our little dog and it was the perfect size for us. In a beautiful spot with views of the harbour and literally less than a minute to walk down the hill into Port Isaac. Having a garage to park the car was a blessing as parking in Port Isaac is very limited. The cottage was beautifully clean and cosy and there were even Christmas decorations. Beds were comfy with lovely bedding; plenty of storage space in the bedrooms; a modern bathroom with good size walk-in shower; lovely kitchen area with plenty of utensils, etc. We wouldn't hesitate to come back here! Thank you so much for a wonderful week, we loved every minute! x

  • "We had a lovely stay at Beehive Cottage."

    The owner very kindly allowed us to have an extended weekend at the property. The SW Coastal goes past the front door so it is great for those who like walking. There are a number of excellent pubs/cafes/restaurants within easy walking distance as well. The property has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The master bedroom is airy and enjoys a sneak view of the sea. Although the stairs are a little steep, they are manageable. Kitchen was well equipped and was very much a home from home, with everything you could wish for in a holiday property. Garage parking is very handy in Port Isaac. The garage is a little tight but we managed to park an estate vehicle in there with little trouble. In summary a great location, a lovely well equipped cottage, and one we will book again.

  • "We stayed at Beehive cottage in June."

    We really enjoyed our visit. The owners had supplied everything to make our stay comfortable. It was very clean and beautifully presented. The shower and toilet is downstairs and the good sized bedrooms are reached via quite steep stairs. The cottage is perfectly positioned in the village, being only 3 mins into the centre for its shops and pubs. It is right beside the coastal path where you can walk into Port Gaverne. I would recommend this cottage.

Polzeath 6.5 miles; Padstow 16 miles

Port Isaac; one of the true Cornish treasures. A beautiful fishing village nestling in a steep sided valley, the old village in the valley remains unchanged from its days of fishing, slate export and smuggling in the previous century. An abundance of small character properties complemented by larger cliff-top retreats, can be found with easy access to the numerous restaurants and shops of the village. The sandy harbour provides an abundance of rock pools as the tide retreats. There is ample parking at the top of the village and the village is a popular tourist destination with plenty of attractions including the dramatic Doyden Castle, the beautiful Lundy Bay and the famous Doc Martin's clinic. There are also plenty of pubs, restaurants, and shops in the village. Just a short drive from the beaches of Polzeath, Daymer and Rock, it is perfect for romantic and family holidays alike.
