Description

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. Three further bedrooms, all with wash basins; two double and one single. Bathroom with toilet. Separate toilet. Close-carpeted throughout.

    Great house in a fantastic location on a headland between two beaches one of which has lifeguards in the summer.

    We had a fantastic time. The house was used as a central point for close family during our weeks stay as me and my partner got married in Newquay. As we had everyone together the house has left fond memories.The location was perfect. Only a short distance from Newquay. The view from the lounge is breath-taking. We hope to come back next year to celebrate our 1 year anniversary.

    Amazing house with a fantastic view. Our part size was 13 and a baby. As we expected, Electricity cost us about £90 for the Christmas week in December 2015 with quite mild temps outside but we had plenty of hot water, did plenty of cooking in the electric double oven and were all warm and cosy inside. The only reason for a 9 and not a 10 in terms of 'comfort and equipment' was that we would have loved an open, wood burning fire and more powerful Wifi reach, this would have made the Manor House absolutely perfect! The kitchen was easy to use by a lot of cooks and helpers and eaters at the same time!The ceiling on the ground floor dining room is extremely low so beware anybody over 5ft 8inches tall! We feel extremely lucky to have had the pleasure of staying in a very comfortable authentic old cornish house and thank the owners very much for sharing.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review and rating of 10 out of 10. We are pleased that you felt it was "an amazing house with a fantastic view". I understand the desire to have an open wood burning fire which is something we had previously looked in to but this was just not practical as it would have meant a complete rebuilding of the chimney due to the age of the property and as you state the existing fire and additional wall heaters did mean you were "warm and cosy inside". As for your request for a more powerful Wi-Fi - this is something we have spent many hours investigating and we now have additional extenders throughout the property to overcome the traditional thick cob walls that were constructed many hundreds of years before Wi-Fi was invented! We are delighted that you felt "extremely lucky to have had the pleasure of staying in a very comfortable" Cornish Manor House and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

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

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you very much for your review and rating. We were delighted to welcome you back for a fourth visit to this wonderful house in possibly one of the best locations in Cornwall. Many of our guests have made repeat bookings such as yours and enjoy a relaxed holiday with friends and family. I note your comment regarding recycling boxes. This is something we have considered but our initial research suggests this is difficult to maintain with a different set of guests each week. However this is something we will look at again as part of our responsibility to help the environment.

    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 from:

    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:

    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.

    The house is in a wonderful location but was quite dark inside with very low ceilings especially downstairs. The electric meter proved expensive.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments and we would certainly agree with you that the house is indeed situated in a wonderful location. As you are aware most of the bedrooms and the large lounge are on the first floor taking full advantage of the wonderful views of Crantock beach and the sea. In the large dining room and kitchen downstairs the ceilings are lower but in keeping with the age of the 15th century house and we do believe that there is plenty of lighting and several windows providing natural light as indicated on the website. We were aware of the issues relating to the electric meter which is why since your stay back in the beginning of May (your review was not posted until 3 months later) as we have previously mentioned, we have completely upgraded all the electric wall heaters to brand new heaters designed to effectively heat each particular size of room. As they are new and far more efficient the electric cost has been significantly reduced and we are delighted that our guests can benefit from this.
