What a find!

We've just got back from 4 nights at the White Heron and I'm already trying to work out when we can go again!

Stayed in a double room with a little bed for our 4 year old boy. The room was a great size for the three of us and lots of storage so didn't need to live out of suitcases which was good. There was also a good TV/DVD player for those 6am cartoons (much needed with our 4 year old!!) Bathroom lovely and clean and again a great size for a little family.

Location great - about a 10min walk to the beach (less if you don't have a little one in tow!) and although it is a bit hilly there is a reasonably priced carpark on the beach. This could be useful if you are taking a buggy up and down the hill on top of the usual beach stuff. We walked most of the time and it was no problem.

Food is yummy! Really good home-cooked feel and very reasonably priced. If you have the beef cassa get some mango chutney with it - surprisingly great combo! Staff more than happy to tweak and adapt menu items (I had a super spicy korma - a rare treat!). Kids food great - nothing over-fancy but good little portions and big drive to eat their veggies which our boy responded to really well. (Only thing I wondered afterwards was whether plastic cups could be offered for kids but that's probably just me worrying about glasses!) We were lucky enough to be served puds and after dinner drinks in the cosy lounge after our little one was settled in bed which was really appreciated. Breakfast good too - a nice selection of proper cereals (not cheapo stuff) and then good cooked selection.

I think what really made the holiday for us though has to be the lovely staff. They were so so good with our little one. Every time we came back from a day out the first thing he wanted to do was tell Jodie all about his day. They made him feel really special at dinner and breakfast and were genuinely lovely and friendly with him. It can be a bit stressful taking kids out to eat (especially with a fussy one!!) but every time we ate in the hotel we all felt genuinely relaxed and had a good time.

There will be parents reading this who know how rare a genuine family friendly place is but this is the place to go! Best holiday in ages - thank you :)

Looking on the computer for places to stay in the Polzeath area we found the White Heron. Very glad we did. Accommodation, food and very friendly owners , made our six day stay very enjoyable in spite of the changeable weather!! The White Heron is well situated for walking on the cliff coast path or just watching the surfers down on the beach. Hope to visit again next year
and maybe the weather might be better. Although we must say that our stay was excellent.

We stayed at The White Heron at the end of September 2011 and loved it. Rooms were very clean and tidy, owners very polite and approachable (I was even given chocolate ice cream at 11pm to cure my craving one night) We travel to Cornwall many times a year and would definitely stay here each time.

We have been visiting the White Heron for several years, and have always been totally satisfied. The food is excellent, once you have decided what to eat,from the extensive menu. The place is spotlessly clean, and would recommend with out hesitation!
