“Perfect house for a great holiday”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Great place to stay. Everything you need for a brilliant holiday. So much to see and do in the surrounding area. We wanted a relaxing break and that's what we got.The house itself was beautiful modern spotless and had free wifi which was a bonus and loved the underfloor heating. Would defiantly stay there again.

“Didn't want to come home.”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

St Johns View was modern, spacious and had all the amenities you would need, it was clean and tidy, inside and out. We felt thoroughly spoilt with a bathroom for each of us and the additional wet room downstairs. We are a couple with a ten year old and fifteen year old, we all loved staying at the property, it was extremely comfortable.
The only criticism would be that there are no blinds/curtains on bathrooms and patio door windows. We hope to return for another visit very soon.

Thank you for your very kind comments. We are always pleased to hear that people have had a great time. With regard to the blinds we decided that the opaque glass in the bathrooms gave enough privacy. We decided to leave the downstairs sliding doors clear of curtains or blinds as we did not want anything to spoil the fantastic views and of course apart from the sheep the back of the house is not over looked by anyone else.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

'Wow' St Johns View is a fabulous property. We could not have asked for more, for our family winter break. A welcoming and luxurious home, we all loved it here! There was everything in the property we needed to make it a home from home and plenty of space for us all, upstairs and downstairs.
Sitting in the lounge with the woodburner lit, looking out over the fields was great on a chilly day or sitting on the decking outside in the winter sunshine talking with the sheep was so relaxing. A short drive down to the beach, where my family love to spend time, rain or shine. We met some lovely friendly people in the village, the shop is but a short walk and is well stocked and extremely helpful.
We have stayed in and around Bude and Widemouth for many years but, St Johns View is by far a superior property and fairly priced. So easy to book on line, my family would love to come back here for future holidays. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your kind review. We try hard to make St Johns View a fantastic place to base a holiday in North Cornwall. Hearing this kind of feedback makes our hard work well worth it. Please do come again!

The second time we have rented the cottage at this time of the year when visiting family who then join us for meals or staying over for a night. The open plan layout works well for us albeit that all the glass, when the wind and rain is battering it, can make you feel a little exposed. That said, it is perfectly airtight. Maybe we'll try and experience it on a warm summer's day sometime - it would be lovely to sit out on the decking and really enjoy that view!

As previously mentioned the problems with the doors are to be sorted out although not really an issue for us. The cottage has all you would need and the location is good. Coastal walks from the beach are lovely - we managed to do that last year - and Tintagel, Port Isaac, Boscastle and Bude are all well worth a visit. The local pub, The Coombe Barton inn, is also worth a visit - improved on last year with new proprietors and the food is rather good.

Liked best: The location is obviously a particular factor for us as we have family living in Crackington Haven.
Liked least: The weather! Seriously, the only thing was the wood burner - it was little temperamental - it was suggested the seal around the base of the flue pipe had gone?

“Great place”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

How lucky were we!! Late booking and this place just happened to be available the week we needed. Further South than we intended to go but the advert won us over.
Good location a mile from the beach. Nice and quiet, just what we like and an added bonus if you like star gazing!!!
House was easy to find thanks to great communication/direction from the owners. It's well equipped and I can't think of anything we needed that wasn't there - and we do cook where we stay. The place was also incredibly warm - we had to switch the heating totally off after the first night which can't be bad for first week in October.
Would I book again. YES, without a doubt if we return to that area

I'm glad you had a great time. Over the years we have made sure we have reacted to our guests comments to make sure that the house has got everything you need (apart from barbq for food safety reasons). It's great to hear you made use of the kitchen. Hope to welcome you again in the future.

“Excellent accommodation !! 😄”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Fantastic find ! You really can not go wrong if you book this house , it really is stunning . From the large open plan living room area with a log burner , to the lovely bedrooms , bathrooms and garden area . This house has everything you will need . We loved returning home from our busy days out to a peaceful warm home . We have stayed in many rental homes and have to say this really is 5! The only one thing that we were disappointed about was the living room windows not being able to be opened due to their locks being broken and leaking in the rain but we know the owner is aware of this and it is all in hand so don't let this put you off ! We will certainly go back

Thank you very much for your kind comments. You are certainly welcome back at any time! As you say we will be resolving the issue with the folding doors this Autumn. The plus of having fantastic views out to the Atlantic is countered by the fact that the back of the house is exposed to all of the elements and as such water has found it's way in and swelled the folding timber doors.
