    The house catered for all of our needs with excellent facilities, and a yummy welcome cream tea. Sitting in the hot tub and watching the sunset is a must and a fantastic feature of this beautiful house. Can’t wait to stay again, highly recommend this property

  • "Fantastic place, great location 5 minutes walk to Porth beach and within walking distance to Watergate Bay and Newquay town centre and other beaches."

    The view from the sitting room was absolutely stunning we were lucky enough the enjoy some wonderful sunset views which can also be enjoyed on the decking area. The property is really nicely presented, clean and tidy and very well equipped. The property is a good size with plenty of storage in the bedrooms. The welcome pack with scones, cream, jam and bread was a lovely touch. There were also some nice treats for the dogs which they loved!! The owners contacted us to check we were ok and enjoying our stay which was a really lovely. We used the hot tub a couple of times, instructions were easy to follow and it was so lovely to relax in after a long day at the beach and a wonderful addition. Plenty of outdoor space, there is a grass area to the side of the property but this is not fenced in so we were unable to let the dogs on there without being on the lead as it was next to the road but they did have plenty of space in the decked garden area. Off road parking for 2 cars at the front was really good. We had a wonderful holiday here and enjoyed it so much we are looking to book again next year!! Can highly recommend this property.

    Nice touch was bread, scones, jam & clotted cream left for us. Even a gift for our dogs of treats and squeaky toys!! Everything was there that we needed. Couldn’t ask for more in the accommodation. Great holiday.

  • "Just returned from a fantastic week at Sunset View."

    The house is well equipped and because of this we only ate out once, choosing to bbq most nights. We wanted a truly socially distanced holiday and you can certainly achieve this staying at Sunset View. Hot tub is amazing once you get into the swing of keeping the burner going. Loved it so much we are now seriously considering buying one! It’s a short walk to Porth beach which is great for families and not overcrowded. The Mermaid pub gets good reviews and was busy everyday. It’s in the evening back at the house which makes this place. The views are to die for and we were lucky to see a couple of beautiful sunsets and after a full day on the beach, the perfect way to relax in the evening. My only negative was the comfort of the beds. Investing in better quality mattresses in the double rooms would have made this holiday perfect. Don’t get me wrong it didn’t detract from the holiday overall but would have enhanced our stay. Thank you Ian and Claire for sharing your beautiful house. We very much hope to be back next year.

  • "We are booked again for November."

    A few things were overlooked due to being out of season, o dishwasher tablets, no sharp knives that actually cut, no potato peeler, but we are realists and understand others may have taken these. Beautiful location, ease of access with cars, should be height warnings in upstairs lounge area, as every person staying hit their head. All in all a great location if you want to hide away in Porth and want the distance from town.

  • "Our weekend away here was just perfect."

    The cottage is well equipped, with everything you need to hand. Inc all kitchen crockery/utensils/washing up stuff/dishwasher/dishwasher tablets/washing machine/iron/ironing board/kitchen roll/tea towels/ linen/ bath towels... I could go on. We really didn’t need to bring anything with us, just our own toiletries. On arrival there was milk and clotted cream in the fridge, and a basket with scones, bread, jam and tea waiting on the windowsill. Such lovely touches, that we weren’t expecting. The cottage is so homely, with personal items around the home which make you feel welcome Ie beautiful art work, unique lamps and candles. The cottage is a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach, which is just beautiful. We are lunch at ‘The Mermaid’. The food was fantastic, and we would definitely recommend grabbing some lunch there. The cottage was a perfect size for our family of 6, being able to socialise in the living area on the second floor allowed anyone who was sleeping to remain undisturbed downstairs. The owner was easily contactable, really putting us at ease during our stay, as we knew if we needed anything we could contact him. The log fire is just amazing, really makes the cottage cosy and warm. There were plenty of logs left for us at the cottage, but because we wanted to keep it burning for long periods we nipped to Aldi to pick up some more treated logs. A taxi to Newquay town centre took 5 mins and cost £9.50, and we were able to order a take away ‘Indian’ from Newquay that delivered free of charge. We had a really lovely stay and would definitely come back. We will also be recommending this to our family who are looking for a summer holiday vacation. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

  • "This lovely holiday home was in a perfect location, 5 mins walk from the beach/The Mermaid Inn (serving good food)."

    A couple of days prior to arrival Sykes called to say the Hot tub had been broken by previous guests. We requested a partial refund, which unfortunately Sykes really didnt want to get involved with. After some insistence on my part they contacted Ian (the owner) who agreed to reimburse us a reasonable sum. We felt Sykes really didn't want to know (goodness knows what would of happened had there been a bigger problem). Saying that really couldn't fault how the Owners dealt with us. Lovely scones/cream on arrival and some lovely touches / artwork. There were just a few MINOR things, which in our opinion would improve the house greatly. 1. A bit of a lack of utensils 2. Some sort of unobtrusive blinds would give the lounge a more cosy feel in Winter. 3. Felt the bedroom curtains/poles were a bit cheap and cheerful (very thin and awkward to pull) There was only on real thing I would mention, that is the single bedroom mattresses were awful. My 13 year old daughter could feel every spring, so much so, that we took sheet off and had found a couple of spare duvets to put on top of mattress which helped. Better quality mattresses needed!! We had a fantastic time and in all honesty it was just a shame about the bed. Would definitely return, just please invest in some new mattresses... would make all the difference.

    With not being too Cornwall before we should have looked at the terrain as the beach was only 5/10 mins away it was quite a steep walk back too our cottage .car parks got full very quickly so if driving you had too be at the beaches early but over all a good holiday,

    Loved the hot tub. Great location for visiting Padstow, Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan. However, on our journey to the Lost Gardens, our sat nav took us down single lane roads and on to a farm track and, on checking the Lost Gardens website, there is a warning about problems when following some sat nav directions.

Would definite go back again maybe in summer next time.

    The views are gorgeous the house is stunning, spotless and very comfortable showing beautiful artwork by the owner on the walls. The outside space was an absolute joy with a log burning hot tub, hammock and lots of secluded relax areas out front and back. Everything you need is there and Ian the owner was extremely helpful and accommodating for all our enquiries. Porth itself is a delight with a lovely pub/restaurant on a few minutes walk away, right on the beach and the Tapas restaurant opposite is highly recommended. Our 2 small dogs were made so welcome with treats toys and the area is very dog friendly, albeit a few beaches do have restrictions we weren’t short of places to take them. I’d highly recommend a stay here, we would go back tomorrow. Thank you also for the lovely welcome pack, very much appreciated
