“super cottage in beautiful location”

person found this review helpful

The cottage is just a few minutes walk from the gorgeous beach and provides everything you need - it is spacious and comfortable with easy parking outside. There is a covered walkway which was great for cleaning the dogs before letting them back in the house. Arranging the stay was so easy and the cake and milk we found on arrival was just what was needed after a long drive. We will definitely be coming back!

“The perfect location for a holiday on your own or with kids”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have stayed at Macalby for the last 5 or so years. Both pre and post having kids. It is the ideal cottage for a holiday in Cornwall. The accommodation is fantastic and the body boards and variety of wetsuits are a real bonus. The location is ideal, just cross the road and your are on the fantastic Harlyn beach. Our daughters absolutely love it and talk about holidaying there all year until we get back there. We will be back again soon.....

“Great family holiday accommodation just a minutes walk from the beach”
Reviewed 9 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Beautiful, well equipped holiday accommodation - we definitely appreciated the welcome cake!

Tucked away, we were surprised that the only sound we could hear was the sound of the sea which was less than a couple of minutes walk away. Superb location for exploring all 7 beaches.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 5 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had a perfect stay at Macalby Cottage & would highly recommend it to others! Only a couple of minutes walk to the amazing beach, local Inn within close proximity too and a cottage which provided everything you needed to enjoy a home from home experience!!

“Perfect holiday house for those with young children”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We booked the cottage for our last trip in 'term time' before the eldest starts school. The area was recommended by a friend and the website looked great. The house is open with a modern feel and everything is provided you would need for two weeks. The beach is a couple of minutes walk away and perfect for children. Padstow is 10 minutes Max down the road so lots to do. We had two super weeks of sun, crabbing, seal watching, jellyfish catching and eating out.

We would highly recommend Macalby Cottage. Many thanks. The Wilsons

“Great place to stay .”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Family of 4 plus grandparent. Cottage comfortable , modern and well equipped. All beds very comfortable. Kids very happy with wifi!
Right next to Harlyn Bay - Large beach with lots of rock pools at low tide. We weren't brave enough to try the surfing!
Tesco near Padstow good for shopping .
Enjoyed visiting Padstow (but try parking at Rock and take ferry across as parking difficult at Padstow ), Port Isaac and Healey's Cornish Cider Farm.
