“Brilliant”
Reviewed 31 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

One of the best cottages we have stayed in, in 40 odd years. Excellent location, peaceful, clean, well appointed, host and hostess really welcoming with lovey walks from the doorstep. Brilliant.

“Great place for family”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We visited in October 2016 and stayed at Hellfire Jack's. 5 bedrooms made sure that all the family could be accommodated. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The hot tub was a really good asset as we had 3 children and a baby. Amazed how well the cottage was equipped from cleaning materials, dishwasher tablets up to towel dressing gowns. Can't recommend it highly enough. Close to Portreath and we walked (including the 5yr old) down and back to the beach.

“Beautiful Cottages”
Reviewed 7 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Went for a week with my partner and her family. Absolutely superb from start to finish. Very comfortable cottage with all requirements. Far enough out but close enough to everywhere. Loved it. Thank you to superb owners. A job very well done.

“Idyllic setting handy for walking to beach, country park from the door.”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Clean, spacious, well equipped and a lovely setting. We stayed in The Gew which had an enclosed large patio- great for the dogs. 20 mins walk to Portreath mostly on trails straight from the farm. Country Park also very close and good for walks.

“Good location”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Cottage was very comfortable and in a nice quiet location but close enough to beach and all facilities at Portreath. One small improvement would be a better fridge with door storage (we had to remove a shelf in order to store milk cartons etc.). Owners are very friendly and the cottage was easily spacious enough for 6. The Wi-fi connection is very hit and miss. Overall, I would say it was reasonable value for money, bearing in mind it was school holiday season and this is Cornwall.

“Second time back”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Stayed in the Roundhouse this year after having spent a week last year in Mowhay. Fully accommodating, had all we needed with Lindsey offering any additional help needed. The Roundhouse itself was very light and airy and would easily suit anyone needing everything to be on one floor. The area is quiet, the other guests courteous, it was a wonderful week. The farm itself isn't far from amenities in Cambourne and is a short drive from the A30, getting you to anywhere in Cornwall you want to go. Alternatively it's a quick drive or leisurely walk to Portreath beach.

The only drawback was trying to work out how to switch on the towel radiator. (Do what we didn't do and ask!)

All in all, a great place to stay.

Hello, Thank you very much for your kind comments. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay in The Roundhouse, despite having problems with the towel rail. There is a pull cord to turn on the electric to run it. (In the cooler months it comes on with the central heating) I will make a note to label it to help future guests, and I am sorry that you had this problem. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
