  • "Wonderful holiday house!"

    Stayed for 1 week as an extended family of 13 plus 3 dogs for a birthday celebration. Owners were very welcoming and friendly. Responded promptly to any little issues( it was a bit cool one night and we couldn’t work the heating out) Lovely comfortable beds and fresh top quality bed linen and towels. Nice big communal dining area great for get togethers. amazing sea views from almost everywhere in the house. The house overall is really well equipped, everything you could need is in there. 4 fridges and 2 dishwashers, Washer and tumble dryer and vacuum provided for if needed. Hot tub was amazing !! And very well used throughout our stay. Lovely out door party area, plenty of seating. Couple of outdoor chairs needed replacing as broken, and baking/ oven trays need replacing but minor bits really. Would love to return again.

  • "House is in a great location and we were very lucky with the weather."

    It is well kitted out but quite grubby and not as clean as previous houses we have rented. Rooms and bathrooms in need of updating.

  • "Just perfect place for my family, nothing I could fault (apart from the weather), wish there was a games room at times but this was just due to the weather and you can't have everything!"

    !. Owners kept enough distance but were available when we needed them. (live behind the property). The views, the kitchen, the large dinning area were the biggest plus points as well as the hot tub. Some of the Annex rooms felt a little damp but then again it did rain for 2 weeks solid. Could do with more Wardrobe space and a few more TV's (or larger ones in some rooms).

  • "This was a great house for a family holiday."

    It is well equipped, for cooking large family meals, it is comfortable and homely and just right so we felt able to relax and enjoy our time together. The garden has plenty of seating bbq and hot tub, all well used by us. The walk to the beach is steep down hill and we often opted for the bus coming back although the fitter ones would walk. There are many options for eating out and takeaway deliveries or nearby collection. We had 3 generations staying from toddlers to retirees and all had a great time, half of the group enjoyed a surfing lesson. The views from the house and garden are amazing and I highly recommend a stay at Blue Bay Beach House and Mawgan Porth.

  • "What a beautiful large house ideal for our family to join us celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary ."

    It was just as we imagined from the photographs we had carefully studied prior to booking. So much room for 21 of us , each room was lovely, although all did did not have TV and a couple no tea making facilities but it did not bother us, but it may some. Spectacular views enjoyed whilst many monoply and other games played on the long huge dining table this property has , a very well equipped house for every meal , pots and pans galore! The walk to the beach was lovely just a bit steep walking back but we managed ok with it . In all we , of all ages had a most wonderful time and a most fabulous special Wedding Anniversary . Many Memories made to treasure for us , our children and Grandchildren . Thank you very much

  • "We had a wonderful break during our stay."

    Pippa couldn’t have been more welcoming. She briefed us on the house. There is a key safe so there’s always a key to hand, which is great with such a large amount of people. The house itself was large enough to accommodate our party of 20. We had 7 cars which we managed to park comfortably. The view from the house is beautiful and the walk down to the beach is short but very steep for people who might struggle. The kitchen is well equipped to have a self catering holiday with all of your home comforts. We even discovered that it came well equipped with cleaning products.

  • "We had a great stay at Blue Bay House for my sister’s hen do in May 2022."

    The house is brilliant for large parties (there were 19 of us including a baby!) and there was plenty of room for lots of fun and entertaining. Each room had an en-suite too. The views are amazing and the garden with hot tub is the perfect place to enjoy them. James and his family are based on site and are so friendly and accommodating for any questions we had. We didn’t want to leave and I’d definitely recommend the property to anyone. Mawgan Porth is a great location as you can walk to the beach and pub - what more could you want! Thank you!

  • "Great property and lovely location, slightly further from the beach than expected and not easy to walk for the oldest member of our party."

    Great facilities enjoyed by all of us but some aspects of the property are a bit tired and in need of updating. Nothing to spoil our stay though overall we had a great holiday.

  • "The moment we walked into blue bay beach house, it felt like a home away from home."

    James and Pippa made us all feel very welcome from the start. All rooms were beautifully presented with plenty of space in the majority of rooms. The smaller twin rooms were given to the children so no issues there and the house in general certainly suited a big family. There were plenty of brand new towels given in all rooms which was fantastic. Clearly many rooms had been freshly painted or redecorated before our arrival and a new carpet was arriving the day we left for the main hallway so plenty of good things going on. Overall this property gave us the space we needed as a big family to just be together, especially since the weather wasn't the best we've had whilst holidaying in Cornwall so we had more time in the house and spent loads of time at the local beaches and in Newquay at various attractions. We will definitely book again in the near future as the accommodation was perfectly adequate for what we needed as a big family. Again James and Pippa were on hand for any issues or questions we had throughout our stay. Can't wait to book again for next summer.

  • "Blue Bay Beach House is situated in a lovely area with beautiful views."

    However the property itself was not up to standard with doors not closing properly and locks not working, some toilet flushes not working. Some rooms had no where to hang clothes other than the back of a door and one room which appeared to be a converted garage was so damp and fusty we were unable to use it. One bed in particular had to be stripped and the bedding aired before it could be used. In short this property is very tired and in desperate need of some TLC. I do not believe the property had had a deep clean either as the first thing we needed to do was clean all the surfaces and wash the glass wear before use. We should have been a party of 20 but because of changes to the law in relation to Covid 19 part way through our holiday we were asked to reduce our numbers to 6. Had we all been able to stay for the whole week the parking arrangements would have been totally inadequate. Further more because we were unable to use one room because of damp and others because they couldn't be locked some of us would have had to go home anyway.
