“2nd time round and just as perfect!”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Came back to visit the Bucket and Spade with my 3 mates before heading off to Uni. What a perfect end to the summer with Mo making us feel as welcome as ever. Still love the room and all its facilities! Thanks Mo for ordering the good weather too, perfect for our 3 days of surfing. Hope to see you soon. Harry.

“Just perfect!”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have had a wonderful week at the Bucket & Spade, the room is cosey and clean and slept our family of two adults and two children perfectly. The room has a fridge, kettle and toaster with tea, coffee, hot choc, milk etc provided and Mo ensures your breakfast dishes are refreshed each day. It's within quick walking distance from the beach which has great surf and is also very clean, and we would highly recommend to anybody wishing to stay.

“Bright & Welcoming”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Stayed here one night as attending a concert at the Watering Hole. Were met on arrival by Mo who was very welcoming and showed us the room which was very spacious even for the four adults in our group. The room was very bright and clean with a view of the beach and sea. It is well furnished with a double and two single beds, fridge, and tea and coffee facilities. Breakfast is provided as well with cereals, bread, yoghurts, fresh milk etc all being provided with an added lovely touch of a bowl of fresh raspberries in the fridge! It is just a couple of minutes walk from the fantastic beach and the centre of Perranporth where there are all facilities. It was absolutely ideal for our stay and can thoroughly recommend booking this property. We will certainly be back again if visiting Perranporth.

“A perfect cosy ensuite in easy reach of the beach.”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here for a long weekend and loved everything about the place. Mo, the owner has made it an ideal cosy place to stay which is perfect for a couple or a family with kids. So handy for the beach and a little home from home with a full sized fridge , dining table chairs and plates and cutlery immaculately laid out and cleaned every day at your convenience who could wish for more. Bring your fish and chips back and use the full sized plates and cutlery to eat off as you wish as they will be washed up ready for you to use the next day. A lovely touch that.
Breakfast is a refreshing change as is a selection of fruits, quality cereals, decent bread, crumpets and preserves with your choice of hot drinks such as tea, coffee ,hot chocolate and fruit teas. Of course if you want a full english the local places are close to hand.
We will definitely be staying again :)

“A lovely place to stay for a beach holiday”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed here last week for three nights with our three children. The room was perfect for us, within walking distance from the beach, spotlessly clean, compact but big enough for what we needed. Mo was a wonderful host who made us feel very welcome. Breakfast and extra bits provided were a lovely touch. We would definitely return. Thanks so much.
