  • "It was an intrusion into our holiday not being able to have the backdoor open for the dog to go out due to the cars arriving and leaving between 3pm and 6pm on the days we were there."

    We had not been forwarned prior to booking the holiday. No information on what could be recycled. No leaflets on local attractions in the are. The fridge door was hung on the wrong side to gain access to the fridge. You needed to lean round the door. The door was reversible.

  • "This is a lovely little cottage that is perfect for couples, and Claire is a lovely host and nothing is too much trouble for her."

    It's in the perfect location for Newquay, Parenporth, Hollywell Bay etc, but there are some need to knows that considering guests should be aware of. Pro's 1. Location 2. Very clean and modern 3. VERY POWERFUL oven and hob (I know because I cremated a pizza in it in less than 7 minutes!) 4. Amazing Host. 5. Stunning views Cons. 1. The owners live next door and you can see their garden from the living room window that may feel a little obtrusive to some people. 2. Claire teaches swimming lessons in the evenings from 4pm-6pm and on Saturdays from 10am - 12pm so parking can get busy, but Claire ensures no one parks in your bay and her students remain considerate to her guests. 3. There is no washing machine or ironing board at the cottage ( understandable because it is small) 4. The bed isn't very comfortable, but isn't a huge inconvenience. 5. No local shops - everywhere is a drive (didn't bother us, but may do with some people) Overall, we enjoyed our stay at little may, and I would recommend it to anyone if you just want a get away where you can be left alone to venture out with your pooch.

  • "The cottage is lovely and comfortable, however the knives and forks plastic were child size and flimsy."

    We were contacted by owner for access when we arrived as they were away until Sunday. On Sunday no contact but asked the husband and he said he'd get some but not to throw old ones away, quite stand offish. These were given to us Wednesday,. We thought we had a patio and access to shared garden/field, this turned out to be a car park for swimming lessons in hosts pool 4pm to 7pm and Saturday mornings. The amount of traffic as we sat trying to relax/eat outside was upsetting as this wasn't in itinerary, we booked last August. Reading feedbaxk from this year someone else has left similar feedback, we booked last August as we certainly wouldn't have booked it. No local walks as stated either. We didn't see female owner until we were packing to leave Saturday in passing asked if we'd had a good week, we mentioned not knowing about swimming lessons and car parking, she said it does say in description, and we had to share area, quite rude. The owners also had a large alsation dog, our dogs petrified when it barked We wanted a quiet get away with our 2 dogs, this wasn't quiet or completely dog friendly as stated.videos and photos taken to back this complaint.

    Everything supplied and if you needed something I'm sure the hoist would supply. Very friendly and helpful.

Newquay is the home of the UK’s surf scene, boasting eleven beaches and over seven miles of golden sand, three major beaches, the National Surf Centre and an endless supply of rolling surf, making it a beachlovers and watersports paradise. The town, with its zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. For avid walkers, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches. The quaint harbour and fishing village of Padstow is just 14 miles away, while Truro, with its museums, cathedral, restaurants, and cobbled streets, as well as the Eden Project, can be reached within a short drive. Picturesque St Ives and the Tate St Ives gallery is just a train ride away. In fact, because nothing in Cornwall is far from Newquay, it’s the perfect touring base.
