  • "Best holiday property we have ever rented, mainly due to the fact that this is a family home as well."

    Very well equipped; in fact everything you could possibly require is provided. All the furniture is very comfortable and in good condition. A real home from home. Thank you very much, Caroline, for letting us share your home. Fantastic weather added to what was a very happy week.

  • "What a find!"

    ! This is a really, really excellent property, in a small, quiet village in Cornwall, called Mullion. It is a beautiful area with many quite picturesque small coves to explore. More well known touristy places, for example St. Ives, Lands End, Falmouth are all within 30 miles. The property itself - Ridgeback House, is superbly situated, in a quiet street and has good parking space for two cars. It is very spacious, with a huge kitchen, which is incredibly well equipped. The four bedrooms are all a good size and we all agreed - very comfortable beds!! It is every bit as good as the photos and the description of the property suggest. Book it before somebody else does!!

    The starter pack of teas, coffees and cookies was a lovely touch. Perfect location for exploring this end of Cornwall in a quiet lane. There was an abundance of cooking utensils, tons of seating and the beds were absolutely divine! Excellent communication with the owner and the property management. We loved this property and would happily visit again.

  • "The pictures of Ridgeback House are perfect and matched the property perfect."

    All of the rooms are big and spacious. The house itself is well equipped and everything is of a high class quality. The kitchen is excellent with lots of pots and pans, plates etc. The towels were lovely and soft. My teenage grandkids loved the snooker and table football. The garden is quite private. Perfect holiday with lots of beaches nearby. We didn’t really use the spa as the coop is just a few minutes walk away and we’ll stocked. Good fish and chip shop and 2 local pubs nearby. Lovely village with friendly people.

    Games room and ice machine in the kitchen were very popular with our teens! The little covered patio area in the back garden was really lovely and well-kept, with pretty planting display, and we made the most of this area, often eating meals on the patio. Within easy reach of some lovely beaches and walks right on the doorstep, but even heading up to the north coast in search of some bigger surf, was only around 45 minutes. We would gladly return.

    Ridgeback House was a great family house in a perfect location. It was VERY well equipped, they thought of everything you might need. I recieved a welcome email from the owner making sure all was well and to contact her if we had queries which was a nice touch too. We didn't need to travel more than 20mins on foot or in the car all week. Stunning beaches, chocolate and craft center, Flambards theme park, cafes, parks & shops! I would definitely recommend to others and hope to return soon - a true home from home.

    It is well placed for the village of Mullion and local attractions and walks. As we know the area well we knew exactly where it was but it is attached to a council estate and not what you would call pretty so if you want lovely views in a picturesque setting this is not for you.
