    Our 2nd summer holiday here with our 10 year old daughter, a great location ideal for spending long days on Porth Beach. A home from home, comfy beds, great HD TB and improved Wi-Fi, and a relaxing stay.

    We have stayed at The Stables By The Sea now 6 times, and each time we have enjoyed our stay, in all seasons of the year. There is nothing that is too much trouble for the owners, Tracey & John. The accommodation is always spotlessly clean, everything from the crisp white bedlinen and towels, the comfortable 6ft bed, the vase of fresh flowers to the fresh eggs, milk, cornish butter, to fresh large loaf of bread, the fresh scones, jam and clotted cream. Everything is done to a very high standard and makes us feel welcome, regardless of the number of times we have visited. I cannot recommend The Stables highly enough.

    We had a perfect stay here! The owners are really friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location is idyllic with the beach less than a minute away, and scenic walks in all directions. We travelled as a couple with our 10 month old daughter and the cottage was ideal for us; plenty of space for our baby to crawl around, as well as separate space for her to sleep and us to relax and have dinner. Highly recommend - we will be back!

    This is the second time we have stayed here for Christmas and it was just as amazing as we remembered. The cottage is impeccable throughout and every little detail has been thought of. The technology and equipment is fantastic and the decor is beautiful. The underfloor heating and the added extras are amazing. The hosts were delightful with a thoughtful hamper given to us when we arrived. And then this is all topped off by the wonderful location next to the beach. We will definitely be back again!
