Been coming to helford passage between fifteen to eighteen years now. Been in this property before it was sold and renovated. This has been tastefully done. Like it very much. The panoramic view up the river was superb. Lovely holiday Cost too high in high season
Our 6th visit to maenporth and our 3rd time in this cottage. We love it. The Easter eggs for the children were a lovely, personalised touch, thank you.
This property provides everythingvyou need, and more and the location by the side of the beautiful river is just what we needed to relax and unwind this Christmas! If you’re wanting to get away from it all this is the perfect spot! We look forward to a return visit soon x
This was our 10th visit to Cornwall over the last 35 years and "Rainbow End" was the best cottage we have ever had! There's no need to repeat the positive reviews that have already been submitted as we fully agree with them all and, of course, give "Rainbow End" 5 stars. Instead we would like to emphasize the warm welcome we were given by the White family, the tasteful decoration of the cottage, with matching colours of curtains, bedclothes and furniture and with prints of pictures from Newlyn School. Furthermore, its position serves as an excellent base for walks on the South West Coast P...more
Beautifully furnished, very comfortable and clean. Convenient for beach too. Had an extremely relaxing break, thank you.
This property is on the edge of the Maenporth estate so you get a measure of seclusion. The accommodation was comfortable and clean but the big plus was the view. You can sit in the lounge and look out to sea. When on the outdoor sitting area you feel as though you are directly over the beach.
The flat is in a fantastic location, and has all you need for a week’s holiday. The team at Holiday Cornwall could not have been more helpful & friendly to us. Highly recommend.
This is our accommodation of choice for frequent visits to this beautiful part of Cornwall - highly recommended.
We enjoyed the property very much. Nicely appointed with everything we could require Would definitely stay again
We thought the property was excellent and would definitely stay again. Liked the two bathrooms upstairs and the amount of space it gave. Well furnished so felt very cosy even when raining outside ! It’s a lovely place to stay.
The flat has been most beautifully refurbished and furnished. The decoration and furnishing are elegant and tasteful, and although the flat is very tight for space clever use of under bed and under sofa storage goes a long way to alleviating the space problems. The bed is extremely comfortable and the bathroom and shower spacious and very good. The automatic low level lighting in the bathroom is inspired! The washing machine and dishwasher are easy to use and efficient, but the lack of instructions for the cooker meant I couldn't use it until I'd had a demonstration! I am an Aga owner and ...more
Very nice cottage in a superb location great with everything you need for a quiet break in Cornwall. Leisure facilities on site were excellent and the general location lends itself to easy travelling days out. All in all a great place for a break
A wonderful dormer bungalow located within its own grounds with stunning views of the rover and coastline. We have now stayed here multiple times which is testimony to our enjoyment of the property. We shall return again in 2019. Internally the property is well appointed, and comfortable although the sofa in the living room does not offer the firm support I personally need to avoid back pain caused by poor posture, but that is me. Others in our party find it to suit their needs. The large screen TV is a boon which with internet access allows the viewing of a wide range of programming shoul...more
A lovely apartment with the advantage it has 2 loos, albeit the 2nd one is rather on the small side. View is excellent as are the staff at Holiday Cornwall.
It was a last minute booking and, as the options were limited I opted for Smugglers. What a super find! Sunlight flooded the apartment with all the basics provided for a most enjoyable break. Holiday Cornwall, as always, provided the excellent support.
A well appointed flat in a great position near the beach, which means you can pop back for a cup of tea or a shower after water-based activities. Although it doesn't have a view, the outside furniture allows you to enjoy the evening sunshine. The flat is comfortable, particularly for 2 adults. Everything worked well but instructions for the TV and internet would be welcome.
It was glorious to experience the rarity of snow falling on the Helford river from the warm comfort of this most pleasant apartment. I look forward to returning!
This was our second stay at No 52 and we had another enjoyable holiday. The house is comfortable and well equipped and is in a great location for the leisure centre. Love the welcome pack, and the towels are great (huge), finally someone provides towels bigger than a tea towel! I'm sure we will be visiting again next year.
Just returned from a short break. The apartment is immaculate and the Sea views from the Terrace are stunning . My 14 and 11-year-old loved the pool and the tennis courts on mixed weather days . As a family we really enjoyed the coastal walk to Falmouth and fish and chips in the harbour restaurant .
Excellent accommodation. Lovely in every respect. Very well supplied with everything for a nice stay. There was a welcome pack which was well received by us all. Thank you Holiday Cornwall for a lovely holiday. You excelled your self again. Look forward to coming to this accommodation again in the future. Already booked my next holiday with Holiday Cornwall for next spring. Well done again. Ps had our own private parking space too.
every thing was there that we needed perfect location,the beach was just in front of the apartment the restaurant below the pool and gym at the rear , it was perfect in every way
Staying in River View is such a treat. But that's to be expected, given the totally fabulous location and excellent accommodation. So having some glorious weather too was a bonus!
Pool and jacuzzi very nice. Had a wonderful holiday, will definitely be back. Cannot fault anything.
We have stayed in Maenporth before in another property, so I had high hopes of this property. The facilities of the estate are great and the customer service from Holiday Cornwall was fantastic. The welcome pack was lovely and the biscuits, tea and coffee were great to receive with the information pack. When we found that the hairdryer had gone MIA, Holiday Cornwall brought a new one round first thing the next morning - you can't ask for better service than that! Unfortunately the property wasn't great. The main bugbear was that the boiler only provided enough hot water for 2 very short shower...more
67 Lower Maen Cottage is lovely. I have only marked comfort as being poor due to the bed. I've never understood why people put cheap beds in places. You spend 6-9 hours in it for 6 nights, why would you want a cheap bed?! It gave both of us back ache which is a real shame. However the cottage is in great condition, hot water and warm radiators, (although we did switch them off! ) Other than the bed, it was very clean, everything you could need from a pint of milk in the fridge, ( a real nice touch after a 6 hour car journey to be able to make a cuppa!! ) soap, towels, wifi - the list is en...more
The house was in good internal condition and the facilities in the large garden were perfect for the houses position. The only small irritant was the fenced off areas on the slop side of the house. Would guess a safety issue. The short walk down to the water was an additional delight. Apple crumbles with apples picked from the garden made tasty endings to two meals. The 'welcome' pack was enjoyed and we continue to drink 'Cornish Tea'. Would stay in the house again when we have six persons. Thanks to the owners who's note gave us a secure feeling. We forgot to write in the visitors ...more
Returning to Portscatho for our annual week’s holiday on the Helford river is always a great pleasure and the recent improvements made to the flat make it even better than it was before. We have no hesitation in recommending this property as it is both very comfortable and excellently equipped.
We have been holidaying in the Helford Passage area since 1962, camping first as we had little money then moving on to the present day to stay at what is now known as Holiday Cornwall. Helford Passage is the closest place to heaven in my opinion, little change has taken place in all those years. When you arrive at the flat everything is there for you, it has recently been updated by the owners to a high standard, the views are heavenly and one really does not have go out and about to enjoy the holiday. Holiday Cornwall staff are excellent should you require help, they really go out of their ...more
Lovely cottage - well equipped and so so clean. It had everything we as a family of 4 adults and 1 child needed for a relaxing holiday. Near the beach but a steep driveway - we used the car and parked in the car park. My grandson enjoyed going in the pool every morning - cottage only 2 mins from Leisure Center. Great poor and never crowded. We enjoyed all the facilities on offer. All the staff on the Estate were very polite and helpful. It was good to order a newspaper and collect from the leisure center also other items could be ordered. One of the highlights of the week was seeing the Red A...more
We have been visiting Maenporth for years and have been staying in the Penthouse since it came on the rental market. We never get fed up of the views and absolutely love this place. The penthouse is well appointed and very comfortable and the views are amazing. We spent yet another relaxing week and were lucky enough to enjoy the hot and sunny weather which was a bonus. We have booked again for next year and can't wait to return.
What a beautiful location, the views from the apartment were to die for. On arrival we were met with a welcome bag of goodies. The place was well looked after. Everything you needed was thought of down to dishwasher tablets and washing tablets for washer dryer. There was a wind break for taking to the beach and boogie boards for kids. Everything you would need that would save you having to drag along with you. They had beautiful white towels for everyone. There is a beautiful pool and jacuzzi just around the corner and table tennis and pool table for kids. My only fault with the place...more
Not sure if this review should be posted as we are corresponding with Holiday Cornwall regarding our dissatisfaction with the appearance and condition of this holiday let. They have offered a refund as compensation but in view of our letter and photographs of the holiday let being sent to them (and a copy sent by email) detailing discrepancies with the web site description and the condition of the holiday let, we are awaiting their reply when they have had time to speak to the owner. To be fair to Holiday Cornwall, we have been booking holiday lets from them for years and this is the fir...more
We have now stayed at Cove 2 four times and thoroughly enjoyed each stay. The cost has escalated over the years but we have noticed no improvements or upgrades in the quality or conditions of the apartment. This summer we once again have a few complaints. After my son lost some small change out of his pocket onto the couch, when lifting the seat to retrieve it he found a large amount of old food and dirt hiding that had not been cleaned or removed for a long time. One of the doors leading onto the balcony was not able to be closed and locked as the frame locking system on the base of the fr...more
