“Excellent holiday home - couldn't fault it”
Reviewed 26 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Molly's Nest is in a convenient location, has everything you need for a perfect self catering holiday and you won't meet nicer hosts than Vanessa and Graham. We were given a very warm welcome and a generous basket of provisions including a super lemon drizzle cake - a lovely surprise. The surrounding area is great for walking and only a short drive to all amenities. We highly recommend it.

“Warm and welcoming home from home”

Mollys Nest is in a quiet location, well kept and very relaxing home from home. We were greeted with a warm welcome and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay in Cornwall. The property is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful coast line of Cornwall and is in easy travelling distance of the local amenities.
It was lovely after a long walk to return to Mollys Nest and relax in the conseravtory and enjoy the peace and quiet it offered.
Look forward to returning in the near future.

We stayed at Molly's Nest as a family of four (girls aged 6 & 9) and enjoyed a brilliant summer holiday in a peaceful, well-kept and welcoming place. This property is the ideal base for long days at the beach (walk to the local beach or drive to another) as well as for all the other touristic highlights of Cornwall most of which are within a good driving distance. After a long day of swimming, hiking or exploring the countryside it soon felt like coming home.
The house itself offers everything you need. We especially liked the conservartory, the spacious garden and the selection of books in the living room. The owners of the property live next door and offer any help you need to have a relaxing holiday. We are determinded to return next year.

“Molly's Nest - The home away from home, perfect every time!!”
Reviewed 21 December 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Perfect family holiday with the ideal base 'Molly's Nest' What an amazing stay again!! The sun was out we didn't win the sandcastle competition this year but much fun was had by all.

Breakfast in the garden every morning, which was stunningly in flower and so peaceful. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. I recommend Molly's Nest to anyone wanting the perfect seaside holiday, looking forward to coming back next year!!

“Fantastic place - excellent hosts.”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Just returned from a fantastic week at Mollys Nest . This was our first visit to Portreath having previously stayed further up the coast for many years however i can assure you it wont be our last!
Mollys Nest is set is a quiet cul-de-sac location above the beach and harbour . The house is well presented and very clean and comfortable. The conservatory leading onto the paved garden is lovely and the garden itself is a real sun trap.
A ten minute walk either down the hill via the road or through the woods will take you down to the lovely beach at Portreath . The village itself has a couple of shops , a lovely bakery and some pubs. Although we didnt use the coastal path this would be an excellent location for those who enjoy walking. Portreath is ideally placed for exploring Cornwall , 45 minutes north will take you to Padstow and the same south will take you to Lands end or the Lizard.
Special thanks to Graham and Vanessa who were excellent hosts and made my family feel very welcome. If anyone plans to visit this area give this little gem a try , we are glad we did and have already booked again for next year.
