Great house and location

A lovely house, well equipped with beautiful views however there appears to be a building plot next door and I am uncertain how any new build will effect the views over to Crantock beach and the light into the property ?

The most relaxing Cornwall holiday ever

This is a truly exceptional place to stay. We loved every minute of it and many of those minutes included torrential rain and gale force winds! (also made for some epic kitesurfing sessions at Watergate Bay). Fantastic place to take our dogs with us, It was so easy too keep them clean before letting them in. Easy to clean down Watersports kit as well Beautiful walks directly from the property. Thank you so much for the Lewinnick Lodge meal vouchers, this place was in staggering distance and the food and drink were fantastic. Highly recommended

Beautiful surroundings, beautiful property

We were so pleased when we pulled up to this beautiful property. The sea views are absolutely incredible. The house was very clean as was the garden. The property feels spacious, light and airy. Everything within the property is to a high standard. The decorating is fresh and clean. The rooms are spotlessly clean. The bathrooms have fantastic showers and one a bath. There is an additional outisde toilet which was exceptionally clean also. There is furniture in the garden and you can her the sea from there. We would most definitely return to this gorgeous house in the future.

Family stay at Riverside

This is the second stay at Riverside & again, no complaints apart from a dirty BBQ & the gas needed replacing so did not use. The house itself, for 8 people was perfect, with clean & comfortable beds. With 3 dogs, the large garden was a great place for them to play & relax. The location so close to all of Newquay's beaches was also greatly appreciated by all of us. With great weather all week, a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. Would definitely recommend this property.

A week at Riverside with my son & 2 dogs

A great week at Riverside, which is a spacious & very comfortable house with spectacular views of Crantock Beach. A perfect house for the 2 of us & the dogs, with good sized rooms, big comfortable beds & a very large enclosed garden. Great to have use of Sky Q in the lounge as well as bedrooms. Superb location for all of Newquay's many beaches. Would highly recommend. Thanks

Riverside Newquay

Our extended family had a very good holiday in the Riverside Property. The living area was spacious and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding was good quality cotton. The house is dog friendly which was essential for us and had an enclosed garden with a gas BBQ which we used on a sunny evening. There is a few good coastal path walks from the house which makes it an excellent location.

May 2018

Second time we have stayed in this lovely property the location is fantastic to walk to fistful and central Newquay .the local restaurant /pub on the headland is excellent also with great views and dog friendly atmosphere .The house is a pleasure to use with good open spaces and plenty of room for larger groups to have plenty of space. However the pots and pans have seen better days and could do with renewing also the bed in the front room is very creaky as mentioned in reviews last year and the bed in the room upstairs with the TVs in it was very uncomfortable rendering it unusable we were lucky as we only had 6 in our group so we used the other room instead . All in all we had a great stay and love the house if the bed issues and kitchenware upgrade is undertaken I'm sure we will be back next year

From the Owner:
Thank you for feedback. We take all comments very seriously and have dealt with all the issues mentioned in your review with immediate effect to ensure all our guests have the best possible experience and the highest level of comfort. The pots and pans have all now been replaced and an additional (larger) frying pan has also been added. The beds in question have also been renewed. Thank you once again - we really do appreciate our guests' feedback.

The VP family getaway.

Riverside is the perfect property,it looks straight out onto Crantock beach. It exceeded all of our expectations. The lay out of property was good and great for our dog. Garden was great for dog to run around in. It was very peaceful,but near to all the main links to see Cornwall. We will definitely be going to book Riverside again.

Returned visit

This is our second time at this property and whilst it's not the cheapest available as before the location is great, the garden has clearly been worked on since we last visited and looks lovely. The facilities are perfect for us with our two dogs with the garden for them to play, the ability to walk out on the bluff and have various beaches in easy reach is great. Unfortunately the drain in the downstairs bathroom hadn't been cleaned for a while and our first shower nearly flooded the bathroom but we cleaned it and all was fine afterwards. Despite my last review receiving a comment to confirm the squeaking bed in the downstairs front bedroom had been resolved we discovered this was not the case and the people using that room left earlier than planned. Despite the few issues, this still remains one of our top properties to rent in Cornwall.

A wonderful place to stay

We have just spent a very enjoyable week staying at Riverside. The house is wonderful & had everything we could wish for. There was 7 of us staying & we all felt the house had plenty of room & was well equipped. The views are spectacular & we spent several enjoyable hours on Crantock beach, as well as exploring Newquay & the surrounding area. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic location great house

Having recently stayed at Riverside house with extended family and 2 dogs I have to say the location was fantastic. The dogs loved their first visit to the beach and the accommodation was brilliant in terms of size, accessibility and facilities. They truly thought of everything. The only down side was the bed in the front bedroom, it squeaked so severely we couldn't sleep on it. We had a great time visiting the surrounding area, there was lots to do that we could include the dogs in which is important to us. Definitely be staying at the house again.

From the Owner:
Hi Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for Riverside. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We apologise for the squeaky bed and can confirm that it has now been rectified!! Many thanks.
