Second year staying at Sunnyridge a hidden gem everything you need .Don't need a television you can just look at the stunning sea view. Had a few small problems that the owner Meg sorted out straight away. Already booked for 2017.
This was a holiday to relax and unwind as much as you can with an 8 month old. The location and facilities at Sunnyridge to do so are second to none and everything has been finished to a very high standard, very clean, neat and tidy. The open plan kitchen and lounge is great and makes the living area feel huge, fantastic for cooking at home too. We didn't take advantage of the facilities outside as it was a little cold in the evening (end of October) but I've no doubt that in the summer the amazing views plus a barbecue would go down a treat. The only slight problem we had were flies in the lounge area upon arrival and quickly found that opening the windows simply meant more came in. Luckily, as it was generally too cold to have the windows open, this meant that the flies got in on only a few occasions.
But if you want to use Sunnyridge as a base to explore and just rest and chill out in the evening then this is an excellent choice. We didn't go out in the evening due to having the young baby and wanting him to settle and go to sleep first and foremost, but made the most of the early starts and spent the daytimes visiting the many different towns nearby - Padstow, Wadebridge, and Newquay are all within easy reach, while places of interest like the Eden Project are only a 30 minute drive away. Would definitely go back again. A very pretty and modern home from home in a very pretty part of the world.
The house is beautiful, with bedrooms mainly downstairs and a large open plan upper floor kitchen/lounge with a fantastic view through the glass balcony out to sea across a few fields. Amazing sunsets and the occasional glint of a lighthouse make this a really nice relaxing place to relax with a beverage whilst sinking into the massive sofa after a day of activities. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone who likes to have a bit of piece and quiet but to be within a few minutes of a pub. There are a few nice places to eat locally for a £10 cab ride to St Merrin.
Loved it and would definitely return!
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.
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!
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.
