“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

I stayed in kernow homes in September with my mum and auntie. From the moment we got there we were treated amazingly. Nothing was to much for them. The accommodation was of the highest quality and had everything we needed. Plenty for breakfast to keep us going for 3 days and more. The cream tea on arrival was just icing on the cake. Plenty of room and the beds were very comfortable. I plan to return this year and would recommend anyone to stay there. Brilliant place to stay.

Easy to find. Half a mile or so off the main road in to St. Austell but in a quiet neighbourhood. Advantageous elevated position with impressive views over the bay and of the lighthouse in the distance. Secluded gated car park. Met by very friendly and informative rental management upon arrival. Very high standard of accommodation throughout and immaculately clean. Full facilities and there was no need to bring any catering equipment etc. Very nicely laid out and comfortable. Other family members occupied adjoining apartments and their accommodation was of the same high standard. Very good location, central to South Cornwall - meaning it is ideally placed for exploring the county by car. If you can find somewhere better I'd be surprised. Impressive.

  • Liked — The cleanliness and the views.
  • Disliked — My own noisy grandkids. I couldn't find any earplugs.

We stayed at Kernow Homes in August along with several other family members and we had a fabulous time. It's so reassuring to stay somewhere that's spotlessly clean and has every facility and utensil you could possibly need. My sister and her family had stayed the year before and highly recommended that we join them for their 2013 hols, and I have to say our accommodation and my sister's other apartment exceeded our expectations despite being told how good it was. The fact you are made to feel so welcome and walk in to a feast of cakes and scones says it all, as it sets the tone for your stay. You feel throughout your stay that the ladies who run the establishment value your custom and genuinely care about you! They are full of advice about the area and they were the perfect 'hosts'. Really excellent. Thank you.

Jenny couldn't be more helpful, she went above and beyond helping to make our stay perfect. The apartment was of the highest quality and the amenities made it home from home. We were met with scones and other lovely treats. Everything was stress free and I would definitely recommend and would certainly stay again.

This is our 4th time of staying here and we have received a very warm welcome every time, including home made cakes every time. We took our family and it was safe and comfortable for young children too.The apartments are spotless and it's like home from home and a very relaxing place to stay. My husband and I highly recommend it a very lucky find.

Room Tip: stayed in 3 different apartments and all were the same very good standard.

I wrote quite a long review after our first stay so I'll try not to repeat myself too much! We stayed in August 2013 and I really should've sorted myself out and submitted a review sooner but life gets in the way. THIS time, we brought the whole family - all of my wife's side. Between us there were 8 adults and 7 children, and Jenny and Ruth sorted us out the Carlyon, Fowey and the Charlestown. The three apartments were perfectly adequate for our numbers. Once again we were blown away upon arrival. All of the accommodation was spotless as usual. A mouthwatering array of cakes, fresh fruit, scones and essentials, and more scones, and even more cakes greeted us as we walked in to our respective apartments and we spent the first hour or so gorging! We got ourselves settled in and had a look around each other's accommodation. Everyone was delighted with the views, the rooms, the facilities - absolutely spot on. I even noticed the I-pod dock that Jenny and Ruth had added since last year! We received the usual lovely warm welcome from them both. The only thing I would say is that the Carlyon seems a little more spacious than the other two apartments, although with the other two you do have windows back and front so there's a nice flow to them. The Carlyon is also on the floor below the other two, so the views are superb (not that the view from the Carlyon isn't spectacular anyway). Well we had a great week - weather was good and we loved our 'home from home'. It's so lovely to go somewhere where you don't have to bring a thing and you really can truly relax. Our kids love it there even more than we do and the most disappointing thing about staying there is having to leave - three kids and wife all had a little weep! We will definitely be returning in 2014.

Room Tip: The Carlyon is slightly more spacious than the Fowey or the Charlestown, but you will not be disappo...

We stayed 3 nights and wish had been longer. Met our expectations and much more... the friendly welcome with tasty scones and clotted cream was a pleasant surprise! Ruth and Jenny are lovely and we'll be definitely be recommending to friends and planning another visit. Just wish all self-catering accommodation could be at this same top level!
