Description

Breathtaking sea views across Praa Sands out to Mount Bay, Flambards at Helston, sailing at Newlyn and Marazion with St Michael’s Mount all nearby.

This spacious detached end of road holiday property provides breathtaking views across the mile long south west facing golden sands of Praa Sands and out to Mount Bay. The large flat patio area is ideal for relaxing after an enjoyable day. Up a steep slope, the smaller upper patio has further breathtaking views. Access to the beautiful sandy beach with surf school and summer lifeguard patrol, and the scenic coastal pathway is down a small path a few yards away. This is truly a wonderful location for a great family holiday whatever the time of year. From this central location a short drive will take you to the golf course, Flambards at Helston, sailing at Newlyn and restaurants in Porthleven. Cornwall’s oldest charter town of Marazion overlooks the 12th century St Michael’s Mount (NT) accessed by a romantic causeway walk at low tide. Travelling on further south one will enter another world, the beautiful Lizard Peninsula. Almost untouched, it is flush with rare wild flowers, unspoilt fishing villages and sheltered beaches. It is home to the massive serpentine stacks of Kynance Cove and caves at low tide and the secret location of the real Frenchman’s Creek. The Lizard village offers craft shops, art galleries, cafes and inns clustered around the village green. A walk to the lighthouse, lifeboat station and mainland Britain’s most southerly point is a must. Also close by is the ancient coinage town of Helston famous for its Furry Dance held in May each year. Shops and pub 1/4 mile.

    Really enjoyed our stay here. So quiet and peaceful. Just a short walk to the beach. Some minor issues with the cottage. The shower water pressure is very weak. Suggest run a shower off hot water tank with pump. Heating hard to work. Suggest central heating. But it's a very quaint cottage and comfortable.

    We have stayed at suncroft for the last 5 years, but unfortunately we do not believe we will return next year, was really disappointed this year. The downstairs bathroom light didn't work, it wasn't the bulb, it was the actually light fittings were dodgy, so couldn't use the bath or bathroom after 4pm. The tumble dryer wasn't working which we were told the day before we arrived when we rang, we were told the people before us blew it up but also that no-one had been there the week before we went, so couldn't understand why they had not been able to replace the tumble dryer. It was wet and windy, so needed this facility. The path / private road leading to the house was extremely muddy, which wasn't a problem in itself, but the house does not have a mat inside the front door so if you go into the conservatory you leave mud and dirt on the carpet, but there is a cleaning bill if you leave it dirty. With the house being by the beach and the whole point of going to stay there is to walk the coast line, you would think common sense would mean a mat of some sort would be used. Otherwise you have to stand out in the wet and rain to take your shoes off and then have no where to put them. Luckily we brought items to start a fire, as there was nothing but a bucket of coal, no paper, kindling or matches. The house was very cold when we arrived. The upstairs showers were just a trickle and cold most of the time. There was no cleaning products to be able to clean the bathrooms etc, which would have been handy. The large comfy armchair which use to be in the conservatory is no longer there, there are 2 small sofa's and a small chair, but these were not high enough to be comfortable to stare out to sea for long. Overall, really disappointed, which is shame as we have had some lovely weeks in this house, but do not think we will go again.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am sorry you have had cause to complain and fully sympathise with what you have to say. Let me comment. No-one was aware of the bathroom light been faulty. The property is now closed for refurbishment and the bathroom is been totally refurbished. You may have noticed the bath etc. in the garage awaiting installation. The caretaker advised me of the faulty tumble dryer and we did try to get one and a replacement Bosch is due next week. A cheaper model could have been obtained in 5 days but it is my fault I made the decision to wait a while longer for a more reliable make. Having appliances breakdown and getting immediate replacements in Cornwall is not easy and therefore I have opted for those more likely not too breakdown. Another section of the road was tarmacked this year but is a challenge as no-one owns the road and some residents want it all tarmacked and others left alone to deter unsolicited parking in the season. The mat has disappeared and I will put a new one down. The fire kit was in the garage and unfortunately was inaccessible because of the delivery of the bathroom fittings. They came from upcountry and had to be sourced early so that they were ready for work to commence Monday. The showers are been investigated to try to resolve the water pressure problem. The furniture had to be replaced in the sun room as it had been trashed earlier and without notice it is difficult to obtain anything. I am sorry you were disappointed. The property is closed in January for a new downstairs bathroom to be installed and the downstairs bedroom to be repainted and reequipped.

    We stayed at sunnycroft cottage for a week we read the previous feedback and we were a bit dubious about going but we are so glad we did it was clean and everything was there that you would need for an enjoyable holiday experience . The kitchen was well equipped The water was not 100 percent but we showered it wasnt a fast shower but it worked the only draw back was the shower in the first single bedeoom upstairs the drain was blocked and we cldnt get hold of the caretaker to fix this the water eventaully went dwn and as there was another shower room and bathroom it wasnt an immediate fix but would have been nice. The other thing was the patio set outside was broken so.cldnt sit on it again cldnt get hold of the caretaker to report this but they were small things . It does say in one feedback about the decor to be honest it didnt bother us one bit we werent living in the house permanently only a week the settees were comfortable there was plenty of room for 6 adults we didnt feel like we were on top.of each other the whole.time we were there Two other little things. was the mattress on the single bed need updating as the ones in there were to.thin And more front.door keys as there was only one and we used to.go.out seprately which was a bit if a pain We enjoyed it so much we have booked to.go back next year The situation of the cottage is excellant the conservatory looks right out to sea and the large windows give you the feeling as though you are sat in the beach there is a patio and bbq to use when its cleaned by the previous holidier but the second patio it does say steep steps to it but its not only steep but half way up.the hill and its only a bench not enough room.for a family to sit up there after you have caught your breath .. Perfectly situated for a holiday where u want to spend the day on the beach which is stunning we drove there we didnt use the pathway as it looked rocky and overgrown .there is ample parking space at the beach and a lovelly cafe where you can sit and watch the surfers . Well worth a visit

    All in all not the best of places, the house itself was very tired and the advertising very deceiving. Both showers in the onsuites did not function properly and when they did you had to walk around under it to get wet! The only thing that the accomadation had going for it was the view which was spectacular, this was the only reason we did not complain at the time. I would not recommend this accomadation as it was not very good value for money at all

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am sorry to learn the showers were not too your liking. None of our recent guests have commented on this and they have rebooked with us for next year. As with most properties, upgrades are made each winter. Last year, furniture and bedding was replaced and the outside repainted. The previous year the kitchen was completely redone. The bathroom will be modernised in January 2018. The process is ongoing and seems to meet the requirements of our regulars. Praa, like many areas in Cornwall, can have a problem with water pressure given the pipes are of limited dimension and the population increase in July and August is high. Ultimately, most enjoy their holiday and develop the skills to discover the free parking places and walks and beaches less frequented by others. I really do not know what else I can say except that if the population anywhere increased 10 fold over a 10 week period there would be a problem. Cornwall is breaking records for visitor numbers each year and most return accepting that the growth in numbers can quite literally put a drain on resources.

    About Suncroft: Overall a lovely peaceful place to get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life, stunning views, the only sounds are the waves rolling up the beach and the birds singing (and squawking - there are magpies there too) This is a marvellous holiday retreat, but for the price you pay it could be so much better with a little more attention to detail. There are lots of sofa’s, but with awful covers that don’t fit - and all but one are uncomfortable. The décor in the lounge - YUK. Kitchen appliances are all mismatched, look second hand, and all the testing stickers are 6 months out of date. We just couldn’t work out how to turn on the hob despite the instructions, so didn’t use it. The garden is very overgrown and the concrete path to the top patio (VERY steep) is covered with loose gravel, making it more than a little dangerous if you aren’t careful. If you want a phone signal buy a Vodafone SIM as none of the others work there. There is no ‘personal touch’ here, we tried to call the caretaker to let him know when we would be arriving, but for three days only got answerphone messages. We eventually left a message but had no reply. When we arrived it was to find a key in the door and no one to be seen. We left it the same way. The path to the coastal path IS only a few yards away but only attempt it if you are an amateur mountaineer, however a 10 minute walk down the road brings you to one of the quietest sandy beaches on the coast. Great for strolling along barefoot at the end of the day letting the waves roll over your feet. We’re trying not to be negative here, this is a great little place and we had a fantastic week, however we feel that prospective visitors should know what to expect as on arrival we felt a little let down and disappointed by what we found. Look beyond the first impressions, know what to expect, and you will have an amazing stay.
