  • "A comfortable, compact and clean property."

    Well-maintained and well-equipped. The lounge/kitchen and master bedroom have a pretty view over the Penryn River. The allocated parking space is very useful. There's a small breakfast bar instead of a dining table and trays are also provided. There isn't a downstairs loo and we found the double beds a little small for two adults. It's in a quiet yet central position next to the town centre, harbour and bus routes. Within easy walking distance are a good farm shop (Bailey's) and two nice eateries: Muddy Beach and Pizza Pls. The owners were helpful and responsive. We enjoyed our break in this property in this lovely part of Cornwall and would recommend.

    Hi Rebecca Thank you for recommending our property. We’re very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. See you again. The two double beds in the property are of the standard 4’6” size. Property Owner

    Beautifully clean throughout with lots of thoughtful & helpful notes / instructions from the owner. Everything worked well & we'd recommend it as an excellent self catering cottage.

    Lots of thought has obviously been put in by the owners as to the little extras that make a stay so much more enjoyable and the dedicated parking space a real winner. .

    Great situation near the sea with balcony view over a small river and trees. Also close to bus stops, pubs and restaurants. Beds comfortable with selection of duvets for summer/winter. Liked the labels to supplement the clear instructions for everything. Even had BT/Sky. Hosts attentive. Would happily return.

  • "The parking situation is not perfect especially when bringing more than 1 car, and could be made clearer."

    Having a Stair gate for the top floor single bed room and some child friendly plastic plates would also be a bonus! Otherwise lovely property!

    Hi Mark Pleased to hear you liked our property, that’s always great to hear, thank you. We have now provided some children’s dinner ware, and a solution to the stair gate, so thank you for your suggestions. Hope you will stay again sometime. Property Owner

  • "Fab house, calm, light and airy, overlooking a small creek."

    Tasteful decor, comfortable and well equipped. Dedicated parking was a bonus - easily accommodated 4x4. Superb location for Penryn marina and excursions to Falmouth and Roseland peninsula. Bus and train services good, boat trips from Falmouth. Penryn has a great little museum, eateries and shops - larger supermarket is 10 minutes walk. Every ingredient for a memorable week, cottage is first class, our compliments to the owners of ‘Riverside’.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay, thanks for the lovely review it is much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "The property is a town house, so is over 3 floors."

    This means that the top floor has no bathroom and the 1st floor has 2. This is slightly irritating for whoever has to go on the top floor but the owners have made great use of the space available. Beautifully furnished and decorated, with very high quality white goods. Do note that the parking is opposite a private site which has pop-up parking bollards. These are difficult to avoid in order to access the allocated space, and they damaged our car. Not at all the owners' fault but a shame nonetheless. Parking is Penryn is tricky so the allocated car parking is a godsend.

    Hi Victoria Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review and thank you for acknowledging the quality of the accommodation! We have put a lot of effort into making it a top quality holiday let, so that’s really good to hear! Yes, the two bathrooms are located on the first floor, one being the en-suite and the other being the family bathroom for the two rooms upstairs. Hopefully this wasn’t too much of an inconvenience. Personally never had an issue with the bollards as they are usually lowered flat, but I can appreciate that drivers of larger vehicles would have to be more careful when manoeuvring than drivers of small to medium cars if/when the bollards are raised. Hope to see you back at Riverside in the future and thank you for choosing to stay with us on this occasion Property Owner

The property

Idyllically positioned on the banks of the Penryn River, in Penryn, Cornwall rests this three-storey mid-terrace holiday home, 4 Summercourt.

Set moments from the glistening waters of the English Channel and the Blue Flag award-winning sands of Gyllyngvase Beach, 'Riverside' Summercourt makes an excellent base for a group of six's next Cornish adventure.

A sought-after allocated off-road parking space greets you upon arrival, making unloading your belongings and settling into your new home-from-home an easy task.

Make your way through your private front garden and over the threshold of this wonderful abode, where you can dust off your sandy toes and store your beach-going essentials in the handy hallway, away from the main living areas.

Following a day of adventure, get to work on preparing a hearty meal in the well-equipped kitchen, where a dishwasher ensures no time is wasted doing the washing up, and choose to dine at the breakfast bar or outside in the tranquil setting of your rear garden, where the flow of the River Penryn provides a magical backdrop.

Carry the conversation indoors and settle down for a quality evening with a sumptuous spot in front of the Smart TV, where you can flick on your favourite Sky channel or catch a live game with a crisp drink in hand.

As the evening draws to a close, climb the stairs to the first floor to find the family bathroom, where a tub invites you to indulge in a blissful soak.

When sleep calls, catch your luxury rest in one of the dwelling's three well-presented bedrooms; find the master bedroom on the first floor complete with Juliette balcony and en-suite walk-in shower, basin and WC, whilst the second floor is home to a double and a twin room.

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you into the heart of Penryn, famed as one of the oldest market towns in Cornwall, where the town's fascinating history can be discovered with a tour of Penryn Museum, whilst the wealth of pubs, restaurants and takeaways lining the high-street serve a variety of menus for those evenings when you don't fancy doing the cooking.

The popular town of Falmouth rests moments away, with its scenic marina, Blue Flag award-winning beach and exhilarating surf scene; tackle the waves with a spot of surfing, kayaking or paddleboarding at Gyllyngvase Beach, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, spend the afternoon exploring the history on display at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall or uncovering the well-preserved architecture of Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII.

Escape the hustle and bustle with a peaceful stroll through the flora and fauna of Penjerrick Garden, or the vibrant meadows at Enys Gardens, or hike to the summit of Stack Point, affording far-reaching views across the glistening waters of the coast.

With all of this and more, choose 4 Summercourt as your base to explore Cornwall.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
