From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Set in National Trust land, this 15th-century manor house is ideal for walkers, pony trekking, surfing or exploring caves.

This 15th-century manor house, with its own pretty garden, has tremendous character, a friendly atmosphere and is extremely well furnished. The spacious beamed sitting room is set on the first floor to take full advantage of the wonderful coastal views. Attached to Manor Cottage (GAX) but completely self-contained, it enjoys a picturesque setting on the green, in the peaceful Cornish hamlet of West Pentire – only 300 yards down a cliff path from acres of clean golden sand (see Manor Cottage GAX). Children and adults alike can sample the delights of rock pool fishing, exploring caves or surfing. By hiring a pony it is possible to ride cross-country to the beaches of Porth Joke and Holywell, without the need to cross any roads. Set in the heart of National Trust land, the holiday property is surrounded by magnificent walking country, and is an ideal base from which to explore Cornwall’s splendid countryside and unique history as well as its magnificent coastline. The immediate area is renowned for its superb sandy surfing beaches, punctuated by craggy headlands. Perranporth (named after the patron saint of tin miners) is 10 miles to the south, famous for its drifting sands which have twice buried the church. Lifeguards patrol the wide sandy beach in summer, and surf boards and wet suits can be hired by the day. Further along is St Agnes with its superb coastal views, while to the south lies Truro, the unofficial capital of Cornwall, offering good shops and restaurants, a splendid cathedral and The Royal Cornwall Museum with extensive displays of the county. The historic and family friendly Bowgie Inn is adjacent and offers a wide selection of food as well as local beers and ciders, and sports fans can enjoy Sky coverage. A general store (open in season) can be found nearby, and Crantock village and its shops are only 1 mile away. The lively resort of Newquay, with its cliffs honeycombed by numerous caves, is 5 miles across the estuary to the north. Public swimming pool with slides at Hendra Caravan Club about 10 minutes’ drive. Shops 1 mile.

Attractive beamed dining room. Well-fitted kitchen with oak beams. Utility. Large twin bedroom with en-suite wet room and toilet (Jack and Jill, access also from utility). Bunk bedroom. First floor: Comfortable living room with wonderful coastal views . Large twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom and toilet. Double bedroom with en-suite shower room, toilet and balcony with sea view.

    Our fourth visit so obviously pleased with it. It would be good to have separate recycling boxes as at home.

    Lovely house. Perfect situation. But the heating is controlled by the owner, via te Web so there is no simple way to warm up a room or turn off unnecessary radiators. And the electricity is on a pre-pay meter - not a biggy, but until you've been there a couple of days, you don't know how long £10 lasts. And when the electricity goes off, the cooker won't work until you've rest the clock. Minor niggles. Would have happily paid another £100 for the place with electricty thrown in and heating controls in the house.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review and 8 out of 10. We are delighted that you and your guests felt it was a lovely house in a perfect situation. I note your comment concerning the heating.The only way the heating is controlled by us is our ability to switch it to a very low setting as frost protection during any unoccupied weeks in the winter. All guests when telephoning for arrival details are given simple instructions that if they wish to turn the heating up or down then all they have to do is press the plus or minus button on the side panel of the heater. The heaters are thermostatically controlled just like central heating and will switch on if the temperatures of the rooms drop to an uncomfortable level. If this occurs but the guests feel too warm then all they have to do is press the minus button so that the heater is giving off heat at a temperature the guest wishes to have therefore guests can control the heaters. We ask guests to buy the electric cards to put in to the meter for electricity. Our caretaker who welcomes each weeks guests is reasonably knowledgeable on how many cards the guests need to purchase for the week depending on the size of the party and the weather at the time of the guests stay. The meter shows the guests when the readings are getting low and when therefore it is sensible to insert a new card and therefore the electricity does not need to go off. Resetting the clock on the cooker is very quick and simple to do. I hope that answers any minor niggles that you had and we very much look forward to welcoming you to The Manor House once more.

    To heat this house would cost you the holiday again. The heaters use far to much electric this should be excluded in the price of the holiday. The double beds are not enough and in the wrong rooms we ended up sleeping in single beds as the rooms with double beds were just to small. Apart from that a lovely house and enjoyed our stay.

    Response from: administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your comments that it is a lovely house and that you enjoyed your stay. I note your comments regarding heating the house and I checked with our caretaker who said that you paid £50 for your electrical costs at the house for the whole week. As you were a party of 11 adults that works out at less than £5 each for the week. Whether one thinks in terms of £50 or £5 each that would not be the same as the cost of the holiday again as you state. The brand new heaters are panel based and the number of panels relates to the size of the room that the heater has to heat.The heaters only switch on when the temperature drops to an uncomfortable level in the same way that a thermostat controls any central heating system. We feel that it would be wrong to hike up the original cost of the holiday by a nominal figure to cover electrical usage when each weeks guests use different amounts of electricity. We feel that it is fairer for guests to pay for exactly what they use whether it is for the lighting, heating or appliances. I also note your comment regarding the beds. We have never had a complaint regarding a lack of double beds and it is quite clear at the time of booking that we have 3 double bedrooms and 2 twin rooms, 1 single and I bunk-bed room. The flexibility this offers has always been appreciated by our guests.

    A family of thirteen we had to stay this particular week due to school holidays and there lies the reason for the 5/10 score on value for money because if we had booked a week before or after it would have been £ 1000 cheaper. Other than that we were impressed by everything else except parts of the house could be cold and we reticent to put the heating on due to cost however as we were leaving workmen arrived with new, efficient radiators so looks like the company has listened to previous comments.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your excellent review and 10 out of 10 rating. We understand your comments regarding the value for money score but obviously this is symptomatic of every holiday company where prices vary depending on the time of year and school holidays. We are pleased that you were impressed by everything else and yes you are quite right brand new wall heaters have been fitted in every room of the house with additional heaters in some new areas. These wall heaters are thermostatically controlled and the settings are engineered to take in to account the size of the room they are required to heat. They will not only produce more heat but will cost less to run and we are delighted to offer this benefit to our guests.

    This was our second New Year visit; we re-booked because we enjoyed it so much the first time!

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are delighted that you enjoyed a repeat visit to The Manor House and like many of our repeat guests were able to enjoy our house which has such tremendous character in such a picturesque setting. We are pleased to announce that this winter we have completed the renovation of the downstairs en-suite off the ground floor twin bedroom. This is now a modern wet room with walk-in shower and is now able to easily accommodate those of you who are vertically superior! From the wet room there is also now additional access to the laundry room and back door entrance to the house which will assist guests returning from the beach or the ever popular surrounding walks across the headlands.
