“Good quality accommodation in a lovely spot!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at Gulls Cry for 3 nights as an extension to visiting family in North Devon and it was perfect for our requirements and so much nicer than a hotel for our group consisting of myself and my student son & daughter.

The house is furnished to a very good standard, with a well equipped kitchen and very large & attractive main bathroom. The master bedroom also had an en-suite whilst the lounge had a large TV with the full Sky package - perfect for the start of the Ashes!

Everything was very clean and the owner was very helpful and cheerful when we bumped into her, often with the adorable Alfie, her springer spaniel!

Location-wise, it is less than 100 metres to the beach and you can just walk along the shore into Portreath. It is a very clean and child-friendly beach and Portreath, although quiet, has the essentials including a shop, takeaways and pubs. We were out during the day-time but walking on the beach in the fading evening light was a special treat!

Just a word on the access road, it is a narrow lane but perfectly navigable with due care. Parking wasn't a problem either, plenty of space to turn around and park up at Gulls Cry.

In summary, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily recommend Gulls Cry to others wanting a similar breakaway in beautiful south Cornwall!

Management Response
26 May 2013
Unfortunately some factual errors in this review. The 'narrow' road is wide enough for large 'Sprinter' vans, easily passable with Transits and no problem for large cars. It is single lane with passing spaces. The internet is fully functional - not a good wi-fi signal to the end bedrooms, but good for the lounge, kitchen and main bedroom. More updated photographs show the view from the lounge. The parking spaces are fully sorted out now, so no problems there.
