“Stunning house!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I stayed in Camel Quarry House for a week in January with a group of friends.

The owner is a designer and it shows - this is a beautifully designed house, all slate, wood & glass, and clean lines, with beautiful views, inside and out.

All bedrooms are spacious and all are en-suite, always a welcome luxury. The upstairs open plan living room/kitchen has 360 degree views over the countryside and down the Camel Estuary towards Padstow, views that are constantly changing with the weather and the tide. The caretaker who lives onsite is vey welcoming and provides a daily cleaning service, another very welcome little luxury.

The house has all the mod cons and is well equipped for all sorts of activities (cycling, wetsuits, gym etc.), but one of the highlights for me was sitting in the outside hottub, with a glass of wine, stars twinkling above.

This is my second time at Camel Quarry House, and I loved staying in winter - we had the glorious beaches nearby all to ourselves, and a crackling fire in the evening to come home to.

This is a truly beautiful house in a stunning location. We had a wonderful time, and I hope to return again.

“Breath taking views, comfort and stylish contemporary living for the ideal Cornish holiday”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Camel Quarry House has the most fantastic views of the Camel Estuary leading down to Padstow. Made of glass, local slate and stone, this exceptionally comfortable contemporary house is the ideal place for a getaway. I went for a week with friends but this open plan home would be perfect for a honeymoon, a meditative retreat, a family holiday or an away stay for executive bonding. There is loads to do in the area and some notable places to eat; we rode bikes into Padstow, played golf at St Enedoc, had fish and chips at the famous Rick Stein restaurant, walked for hours along the coastline and watched the sun go down in the outside hot tub before barbecuing on the terrace. The owner has done up the house with exceptional taste and style. Bathrooms are state of the art and there is an abundant flow of hot water, fluffy towels and great DVDs in the TV room. Honestly, we had the most wonderful and restful time. I am definitely going to rent it again!

“The best Cornwall rental for a group--modern design, luxurious, gorgeous”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

We just had a week in this stunning modern property with unparalleled views over Padstow and the estuary. It is quiet and secluded, but you can get onto the Camel Trail (for bikes and walking) in just a minute. Loads of activities for all ages and the closest thing to perfect we have rented.

First, the house: we loved the clever design, which is as beautiful looking out of as looking in on. The rooms are flooded with light. Bedrooms are big and comfy, with lovely bed linens and excellent bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have HUGE baths in the room, with views from over the bubbles to the sun going down over Padstow and the Camel river. The main living area has uninterrupted views, more than 180 degrees. Everything in the kitchen area is generous and user friendly. Walk in fridge with enough space to cater a small army. High quality utensils, cookware, plates & cutlery. A caretaker is on site and the house gets daily attention from him. There is an outdoor shower for when you get back from Polzeath with half the beach in your wetsuit and between toes. A laundry room--huge--means you can keep on top of whatever crops up in the laundry basket. The outdoor area off the living area was a picturesque setting for dinner at night by candlelight. There are plenty of lanterns and candles to provide light. Hot tub--don't miss. And on the night we had a barbeque with friends, we finished the evening around the fire pit in the lower garden, and enjoyed the stars.

In the area: Padstow, Rock, Polzeath. We waved to the Prime Minister twice this week, who chose the same days to go to Polzeath that we did. Take advantage of the great food available in the area--farm shops as well as all the famous fishmongers. We had a splendid day in Port Isaac and walked the coastal path several times. The bikes we hired in Padstow on day 1 were in constant use. A Tesco on the road to Wadebridge is big enough to have absolutely everything you need. The restaurants in Padstow and Rock are all very full at this time of year. Be sure to book well in advance (before you go on holiday). We also had a scrummy meal at the local pub, the Quarryman--try their seafood speciality.

Admin: the owner is very user friendly and helpful. We found all the information sheets very useful, instructions were good, and as I mentioned, the caretaker is on site and is charming.

Finally, I have allergies, and found them very improved after a week at Camel Quarry House. Must have been a combination of wood/stone floors, plenty of fresh air and ozone.

Wonderful week. We can't wait to go back.

“The most amazing house I have ever stayed in!”
Reviewed 30 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

people found this review helpful

Camel Quarry House is by the far the most beautiful house I have ever stayed in. The photos simply do not do it justice, as it is impossible to capture the calm and peaceful atmosphere of the house and its surroundings. Every room has a view, plus its own shower and bathtub....you simply can not beat that!
We came in the middle of Britain's wettest winter to spend New Year's Eve, and despite the weather it was a wonderful holiday. You really don't need to leave the house to experience the great outdoors. But if you do, there is a wonderful hottub outside and a firepit. It is on the Camel Estuary bike trail and there are many wonderful walks to go on.
Lazlo, the housekeeper is very friendly and always happy to help.
I highly recommend it and would love to return in the summer. It is the equivalent of a 5 star luxury house.
