“Wonderful week in a lovely cottage”
Reviewed 22 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Whitestones is the ideal place to spend a relaxed week near Perranporth Beach and to discover Cornwall. Everything is like in the discription, very clean and quiet. We often had breakfast and dinner on the terrace with beautiful views. There is much space for children, some animals, fresh eggs... Thank you so much for your warm welcome and your nice advices to discover this beautiful region!

“Cosy, comfortable, relaxing, welcoming, altogether a fantastic stay.”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

When we arrived, Julia, Dene and the children were all very welcoming and could not be anymore helpful.
I don't think the pictures of the house do it justice. It was Clean, tidy, comfy and well decorated. It is very spacious and it had plenty of room for the four of us. My son loved his bed and said it was very comfy. The kids absolutely loved their room and were very happy to chill out there. The gardens are very pretty and have plenty of things to see and do. The location is great , nice and quiet and not far from the beach (which is lovely) and amenities, around 10mins by car.
This is a warm welcoming home (because of the owners) and we thouroughly relaxed and loved being there. I would definitely recomend this house to anyone, who wants a good relaxing holiday near a beautiful beach in beautiful Cornwall.

“Lovely holiday, beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely holiday in Cornwall, staying at Whitestones. The cottage is in a lovely, peaceful location not to far from local beaches and also gives easy access to tour across Cornwall. It is well equipped and has everything you could possibly need. Thank you for the goodies left for our arrival, they were much appreciated and very enjoyable. The children loved Timmy the cat who kept visiting us. Thank you.

“welcoming and well situated”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Whitestones is a charming, well equipped and well located property for exploring Cornwall.
Received a lovely warm welcome from the owners, who live on sight, including a basket of home made goodies and tips on "what to do" in the area. Easy access to beautiful local beaches and shops, but also near to A30 for travelling further afield. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

“Lovely house with wonderful hosts!”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a fantastic stay at Whitestones. Dene and Julia made sure we were very comfortable providiing us with a lovely welcome and a constant supply of their delicious eggs. The house itself was lovely and well fittted out with everythign we needed. It was also very convenient as a base for exploring the area. Dene and Julia were also an excellent source of information on the area and gave us some great ideas for days out. We would definitely look to stay again if back in the area.
