Set in a lovely quiet village, with lots of footpaths to explore. Just an hour or so walk to Rock or Polzheath, which are both beautiful beaches. The house is clean and so well equipped, with all modern facilities. It was also nice to have a secure garden for our dog. Thank you for you kind comments, we are so pleased you enjoyed you stay and look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

NPS Property Owner Reviewed by Scott5.0★Sep 2023 "At first glance Pentire was amazing and was very well furnished and equipped." However, when we arrived our only ‘welcome’ was a note from the management company telling us to strip the beds when we left, it didn’t even say enjoy your stay! There was no Visitors Book and Information Pack, we’ve never stayed anywhere before that didn’t have this. We eventually found a few brochures in a drawer but not immediately to hand as they should have been. The Information Pack was eventually hand delivered late Thursday afternoon, we were leaving on the Friday but at least this maybe helpful for the next guests but no use to us. The grass was also not cut until the Thursday, no excuse really as the weather had been good prior to our arrival. The lounge sofa wasn’t particularly comfortable and whilst fine for two of us I don’t think it would seat more than four, possibly five. Great to have the pub so close by but this will be permanently closing very soon! Reviewed by Lyn4.1★Sep 2023 "Pentire is a beautiful, spacious and modern property." The bedrooms and kitchen/ dining area was a decent size for 6 adults. Please note that only 5 adults can sit comfortably on the sofa. The house was well-equipped with cutlery, utensils and cookware. We found instructions for the appliances in a drawer towards the end of the holiday. Having these placed on the counter upon arrival would have been very helpful. We appreciate its personal preference, but most of our party found the mattresses too hard and woke up with sore backs. A mattress topper would have been greatly appreciated. At the end of our stay, we followed the instructions, which had been left by John Bray Holidays, to remove the sheets from the beds and towels from the bathrooms. This was not a relaxing way to end the holiday, especially as checkout time is 9am. There either needs to be a later checkout time or do not ask guests to start the process of laundry. Please note, Pentire is advertised on the John Bray website as having parking for 3 cars and check-in time as 4pm. Our welcome email stated 2 cars and check-in time as 4:30pm. Please update the advert or the welcome email. Thank you. Overall, our stay at Pentire was enjoyable. It has a secure garden for any guests who wish to bring a dog. A downstairs toilet and utility room, which included a washing machine and tumble dryer were nice additions to the property. Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by these issues. Your comments have been passed on to the team here at John Bray Cornish Holidays. Our apologies regarding the miscommunication with the check in/out times, they are in fact 4pm and 9.30am respectively so we understand the frustration! We hope you still managed to enjoy your visit despite these issues and would love to welcome you back to North Cornwall in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner.

Nice outside area but be prepared for the very noisy crows if you sit outside.Would definitely stay again. Thank you for your lovely comments, we look forward to welcoming you back very soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner Reviewed by Jacqui5.0★Apr 2023 "Really enjoyed the stay, proximity to where wanted to go was excellent." Only concern was the living area settee that was uncomfortable to sit on. Also the fact that you had to get out all the facilities (e.g. outside table) and then put them all away was a little off putting. Nevertheless a nice play to stay. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We are pleased to see you enjoyed the property, its location and your time in Cornwall. We are sorry you found the sofa uncomfortable - guests have not mentioned this previously but thank you for letting us know. Property Owner Reviewed by Mike4.4★Apr 2023 "Cottage was delightful - having holidayed in the Rock area for more than 25 years- this holiday home is right at the top of the list, for quality balanced with value." The mixed weather restricted outdoor activities- but everything was available. I would suggest a little more detail regarding the technology of kitchen appliances would be useful.

Everything has been thought of, just turn up with clothes, food and have a great holiday. My only criticism and this is nit picking really would be to have a manual with info' for all the more tecky equipment ie TV, cooker etc to aid the less teck' minded of us. This was a three generation + dog holiday which we all enjoyed immensely and we will be booking again for next year as soon as we can.

The owners have thought of everything to make your stay welcoming and comfortable and the property is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The kitchen and utility room are equipped with top notch appliances and there's also everything you could need in the way of pans, utensils, crockery, glasses, cutlery, etc. The rest of the house is very tastefully furnished and, importantly, the beds are comfortable. Lovely bathrooms too We didn't have access to any of the garden equipment such as table & chairs and BBQ. Maybe a bit too early in the season? It didn't matter to us as the weather wasn't quite warm enough, so we wouldn't have used it anyway. St Minver is in a lovely area with Rock, Polzeath and Port Isaac being easily accessible by car. There are lovely coastal pathways nearby with stunning views over the Camel estuary towards Padstow or you can walk on the sand from Rock to Daymer Bay when the tide is out. If you book a holiday in this area you won't be disappointed and we would definitely recommend a stay at Pentire. Thank you for your kind word's we are over the moon that you enjoyed your stay with us at Pentire. We can't wait to welcome you back in the future. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behave of the owners.
