    A lovely house in a perfect location. The beach is a stones throw away which is great for children (and adults). Lots of toys for children which made our lives easier. Everything you could need for a hassle free holiday. We would definitely come again.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Kingsholm with our daughter who is nearly two. It is so comfortable and homely. Perfect for our toddler as there were stairgates and the travel cot must have been comfy as she slept well, there were even toys! Having the playpark and beach on the doorstep was fab, the perfect location. Definitely our favourite self catering accommodation that we’ve stayed in. We’re hoping to go back.

    Our massive thanks to the owners and keepers of Kingsholm - such a perfect, clean, amazing home from home - offering without doubt, the best family accommodation we can ever remember. In terms of ratings we have chosen one word (as well as the 10 out of 10) - its ....."wow!" We hope that no-one else has booked in as we will be coming back at every available opportunity :)

    A lovely well equipped holiday home with easy access to a lovely beach. It was very quiet when we were there (April/May) as there are no attractions other than the beach and surfing. Plenty of room for children to run around both on and behind the beach, including a play area opposite the cottage. I would definitely stay here again as the owners seem to have thought of everything needed for a relaxing home from home. Although Porthtowan seems to be very quiet it is within easy reach of other tourist places. Can recommend breakfast at Cornwall Gold (a short drive away).
