  • "Brilliant space to use as a base to explore Cornwall."

    Well presented and ready to settle in as soon as you are in. We even had a nite and some scones. Quiet area, and real close to the main thorough through. There was 5 of us in the house and we didnt feel like we were on top of each other. Kitchen has a quirky door set up which made me giggle. Loved the garden right off the bedroom. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back soon! Marie Property Owner

    Everything needed for a comfortable holiday was provided and the owners even left us fresh milk,scones with clotted cream and jam as well as wine.Had some great times in the games room. Conveniently situated for visiting other places of interest in the County. Really enjoyed our stay and would thoroughly recommend the property for a family holiday.

    Property has everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Very clean and tidy, good communication from the owners on day of arrival, nice welcome pack, cannot fault anything with the property at all! Perfect location for exploring Cornwall and very good value for money for the summer holidays! Would definitely book again when we are back in Cornwall.

  • "Great property, well situated, spacious and comfortable."

    Lovely welcome pack of goodies on arrival plus everything you should ever need for a home from home, all you need is your groceries. We would definitely stay again if we head back to Cornwall and would recommend to others. The only thing I would say would be helpful is a selection of recommended restaurants and some take-away menus and/or a guest book so everyone can share tips on the locale.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We previously had a guest book but removed this as a precaution during the pandemic. We will reinstate this, thank you for the suggestion. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Marie Property Owner

  • "Wonderful house, lovely and clean with very comfortable beds."

    The cream tea, wine and welcome card on arrival were a lovely touch. The kids loved the play room and as the weather wasn’t the best they made good use of it. If I had to say anything negative, the shower on the top floor isn’t that powerful but it wasn’t a problem as the one on the bottom floor is brilliant. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Cornwall.

  • "Initially we had some difficulty in switching the TVs on."

    Eventually we found very small switches on the back. Problem with the fridge door being right behind the kitchen door.

    Thank you for your feedback. If you had contacted us about the TVs during your stay we would have been pleased to assist you. I agree that it is not possible to open the fridge/freezer when the kitchen door is open, but due to the layout of the kitchen there is nothing we can do about this - I hope that this did not impact on your stay too much and that you had an enjoyable week.

    ( Milk, cream tea and wine). The games room really came into its own, on a very rainy, 'stay at home', day and the choice of games in the cupboard was extensive. Comfortable beds too. All in all, a really lovely place to stay. Thankyou, and we hope to come back.

    It was warm and comfortable as well as being extremely well equipped which all made for a very relaxing stay. The weather was awful so we didn't get to use the garden but it looked like a nice place in which to sit out. Truro itself is a very pleasant place and the house is well situated for visiting all of the county.

  • "This property is in a great location,the only issue we had was that the pipes make a really loud noise every now an again ,and the beds are to hard to sleep on other then I would recommend this property."

    Thanks for recommending 12 Kel Avon. The pipes do make a noise on rare occasions, but this is for a very limited time, and is nothing to worry about as this has been checked by a plumber. The firmness of the mattresses on the bed is a very personal choice - other guests have found the beds so comfortable that after staying they have purchased an identical bed for their home. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Marie Property Owner

  • "The property was absolutely spotless when we arrived and no problem in getting in."

    A lovely welcome gift which we devoured straight away! Also a bunch of fresh flowers which was a lovely touch. A very small matter which we did get around, but the shower upstairs wasn’t very powerful and the suspension rod kept falling down (that held up the shower curtain). But we are a close family so ended up all using the downstairs shower so easily overcome. Location was perfect and we would definitely consider returning as the space was ideal for a large family. Everyone had their own private space! And enough area to get together when we wanted to…..

    Thank you for your lovely comments, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. If you had contacted us about the shower curtain in the upstairs bathroom we would have visited you to resolve this issue. The electric shower was newly installed last year. We hope that you will visit again in the future. Marie. Property Owner

  • "Being in the process of relocating, we were looking for a home away from home property where we could keep a sense of normality, such as our three kids attending online school, having enough personal space for everyone to do this, different inside activities to do as a family, as well as being able to get out and about easily."

    And 12 Kel Avon did all this and more. The owners were so accommodating especially as our booking commenced just before lockdown. However, 12 Kel Avon proved to be a perfect place to be during this time, with the games room providing hours of entertainment, the board games and good selection of books and DVD's. The kitchen was perfectly equipped and everywhere was very clean and well kept - beds were just like new! And as others have mentioned, when we first arrived, the lovely welcome of scones and cream and tea and wine was an extra special touch with the welcoming card. I know we will miss 12 Kel Avon, but would jump at the chance to return at some point in the future. Thank you very much M&A :-)
