“Terrific location, sea views and very spacious accommodation”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Great property with amazing sea views. The location is fantastic. So close to the Atlantic and lots of great places close by: Padstow, Wadebridge, Watergate Bay, Newquay airport, Chocolate factory, gokarting and Eval Candle Company. The house was very well equipped with large TV for films when it rains and an even larger sofa to sink into! A lovely active week in one of our favourite places in the world. An absolutely perfect location.

“Great place!”
Reviewed 9 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This was the first time we'd been to cornwall, and our first time renting a place. Both of us were pleasantly surprised at the accommodation, plus the location (10 mins from Padstow) was perfect. Will definitely book again!

“Room with a view!”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Away from the hordes and the hounds in Padstow, 'Sunnyridge' is a peaceful retreat high up on the hill near Porthcothan. The building is relatively new and in terms of room layout is 'upside down' with the single open-plan kitchen-diner-lounge upstairs and 3 bedrooms downstairs. This arrangement allows for a fabulous sea view through a pair of west-facing double doors at one end of the living space. Here there is a glass-fronted juliet balcony so that the the wonderful sea view is not obstructed - great when the doors are open and the fresh air rolls in.
The contemporary design of the living area is very stylish and comes with all of today's modern conveniences. The property throughout is very clean and tidy and offers two bathrooms - one downstairs en-suite and a bright and cheerful shower room upstairs which we preferred to use.
The location is great for walking as one can leave the car at home and head off on the coastal path in either direction from Porthcothan Bay. Take care on the short stretch of road to the beach as it can be quite busy. Nearby St Merryn has many places to eat including Rick Stein's pub the Cornish Arms. All-in-all a fab location!
The only negative - the blue lighting over the kitchen sink area doesn't work and the bed mattresses could have been better quality - but I'm a grumpy ol' man! I also recommend taking your own pillows but I'd recommend that wherever you go. That said, we would love to return another day.

Booked Sunnyridge after my father passed away and we wanted to take our mother somewhere nice and tranquil.... Four of us, and we had an amazing time.... Cottage in a stunning location, beautiful views and close to an amazing beach with a Lagoon! weather was kind to us... clean, spotless, comfortable with all the facilities, i.e. washing machine, dishwasher etc... outside shower great as it was warm and allowed us to wash away sand before treading it in... close to Padstow and the Cornish Arms pub with Rick Stein was great value and great pub food. Only downside, duvet covers tend to be a little slippy... the material that they are made off and would take our own covers in future... just a personal preference really... will defo book again next year if we can get the availability.

Modern well equipped, spacious, clean with fab views. Kids loved the outdoor hot shower after the beach. The milk, tea, coffee and biscuits were very welcome after a long drive. Will definitely book again if returning to Cornwall on holiday.
