18 of us-- two grandparents, four children and their spouses, eight grandchildren and our springer spaniel stayed here to celebrate my husband's birthday for a long weekend in February. The house was very welcoming, warm, clean and spacious with the most amazing view and easy access to the beach. Plenty of seating and a super Aga stove to cook on. We couldn't fault it, perfect for every one, we all can't wait to return.

Thank you so much for making this house available, it is a wonderful property, loads of room to socialise together as a big group or separately within the house. The beach is a 5 minute walk, if that! Great beach equipment made available to use, buckets & spades, mini surf boards, fishing nets, wind breakers and much more. Cannot recommend this place enough. Already planning our next visit.

Our reason for going to Cornwall and needing a large house, was our company design retreat. We go away twice a year and this time found ourselves in this amazing house in Cornwall.
Its a beautiful old house with very spacious rooms.
The view is outstanding and second to none.
The kitchen with its Agar was particularly loved by myself and used to boil water for the copious cups of tea and coffee we drank.
I would highly recommend this house to anyone who just wants to get away from it all for a bit. So peaceful.

We recently had a short break with 4 other families and had a excellent time at the Big Beach House. The owners had thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. The house is massive, plenty of room for 10 adults and 10 teenagers. The views across the bay are breathtaking and the beach is only 5 mins away.

The whole process of booking with Lesley was a breeze and we hope to return again one day for another memorable experience.

Plenty to see and do nearby (St Ives is a must) and for the teenagers wifi was superfast !

Thanks again

We will be back !

We have reluctantly returned today from a long weekend stay at The Big Beach House. Thank you to little Mark for booking (which he said was a great experience too)!
It is a fabulous house (I like the new layout we had dif from the pics) with 10 adults & 10 children aged 11 - 15. (Plenty of cots available if we had required them. We had so much space that it didn't feel like that many people!
All the little touches make it extra special cream tea facilities, a welcome note and loving artistic touches made this holiday unforgettable.
