We first rented CamelQuarry House for a family holiday in 2017 and had such a wonderful time that we returned this year for another stay. The descriptions of previous reviewers are accurate - it is a truly stunning property built and equipped to the highest standards, set in a spectacular location. The house had just been repainted prior to our stay in May this year and I believe further refurbishments are planned.. A particularly helpful feature is the presence of a lovely housekeeper Dee who lives on-site and can be called on to help resolve any problems that arise.
It is a truly magnificent holiday home and we would certainly be happy to return for another stay
Brilliant place with world class mesmerising views. 12 of us stayed for a long weekend and can’t wait to return for much much much longer - fab fire, comfy beds , goose pillows, hot water , v well equipped kitchen , Dee 100% helpful. Off the beaten track yet so convenient for the camel trail. The house is so addictive we had everything delivered to minimise leaving it. We will be back
We had our entire family celebrating may bank holiday in Cornwall and the house was more than I could expect. The view is stunning, the house is beautiful and the service is impeccable. I don't think you can find a more unique house to stay in in Cornwall. Maybe even in the whole of UK!
We had the best time in this beautiful home. Really cool contemporary house with wonderfully equipped kitchen. Fantastic place to relax, great walks from the house. Will definitely return.
You arrive at Camel Quarry House and the view from the big upstairs open-plan kitchen-dining-living space takes your breath away. Glass walls on all sides open onto one of Cornwalls' most beautiful stretches of estuary and the moment you walk into the room you start to relax, calm down and get into the weekend party spirit. There's so much to look at, so many gorgeous sunsets, that there's no reason ever to leave the room - or the huge terrace alongside it complete with oven, long dining table, big bean bags and oven. But there's so much to do here - halfway between Padstow and Wadebridge, you can walk or cycle to both (the house comes with loads of bicycles) and then you can take a ferry across to Rock or eat in a Rick Stein restaurant. But the best big is coming back to the house because it's perfect - you can shove the teenagers downstairs where there are big comfortable dormitories with their own bathrooms (these also convert back into perfectly lovely bedrooms for one or two) and a big media room. Then there are four stunning double rooms for grown ups, all with their own bathrooms and all with the stunning views. The house is sleek and contemporary, pared down and elegant, so your mind can declutter and just focus on the looking out at the sea. And it's a spectacular party house with a great sound system, roaring log fire, massive walk-in fridge, every size of pan and lots of different places to cook from the terrace to the fire pit in the garden. And as for the garden.... of course it's designed by a world-renowned designer (there's even a film about her) and it's not just full of fabulous sculpture but there's a hot tub too. Even if the weather is bad you can lie back in the enormous linen sofas by the fire and look out at the dramatic skies. It's heaven.
Have stayed here a few times and the position and views are without doubt one of the best in Cornwall. The rooms are all beautifully done to a high standard and the kitchen is epic and very user friendly with killer views. The layout of the whole place house has been well thought out and works brilliantly if you have loads of children..and is also a wonderful place just for adults to chill. I can’t recommend more.. it has given us some very happy memories ..
Highly recommended. We annually visit this house because it is absolutely ideal for family holidays and we know we can rely on it every time. The house is sensational- 5 star all the way. We’ve visited it for the last 3 years and every time had the most relaxing time. Thank you to the owner for no doubt working very hard behind the scenes. Keep it up and we look forward to booking in our next visit!!
