Rinsey Head, Guest Comments

Staying at Rinsey Head was a dream come true. We’ve been coming to West Cornwall for more than 15 years and Rinsey is our favourite beach. Many a time we have looked up at that house and thought how special it would be to stay there. And when we finally did, the experience exceeded our wildest expectations.

Location, location, location! This cliff top property is out of this world. For anyone who loves sea views, coastal walks, being on the beach and exploring the caves and crags this house ticks all the boxes. The location was so dramatic and inspiring that we all want to go back again. The teenagers in our family said it was the best holiday. I am so happy that we managed to please everyone from age 13 to age 85 – not an easy task. We will return!

“This house is 1 in a million. The location is stunning and is even better in real life. Amazing views from every window and the patio is well protected. The house is very well equipped and the kitchen has everything you could need. The aga gives a really warm and cosy feeling on the colder days. Cath Collins shower gel and handsoaps are provided and smell divine. Five stars to this beautiful, unique house. Thank you.”

This is one of the kind property sitting at the top of a cliff on 27 acres of land with amazing views across the sea. You can take amazing walks, go down to the beach or watch surfers riding the waves form your window. In many ways it reminded us of Big Sur in California. The house is well stocked and like a proper country home it has its own AGA oven, which, if you have not used gives you all new perspective into cooking (it’s really easy!) We really enjoyed our stay!

We have just returned home from a wonderful family holiday – at Rinsey Head, a holiday location which truly has the Wow factor!

This is indeed a very special house in amazing surroundings.

From the moment of entering the private grounds and drive, that sweeps down to the house, one encounters the most breath-taking view of Rinsey Head, set against a spectacular seascape, surrounded by unspoilt coastal vegetation.

The utterly memorable initial scene is reinforced when stepping into the house. All the rooms provide fantastic views in every direction across the sea, as does the well positioned terrace. The terrace catches the sun from dawn to dusk, so it is a delight to relax there, gaze out to sea and watch the comings and goings of the fishing boats, surfers and seabird life including a very unfazed Kestrel searching the cliffs.

This property is a definite for any lover of seascapes, coastal walking, secluded beaches, and being off the beaten track, is ideal for just relaxing to the sound of the sea!

Our family loved the location, the atmosphere and the facilities, and as we are all foodies the well-appointed kitchen and Aga were well used.

Porthleven is a short drive away and can also be reached via the coastal path (although for some that might be slightly challenging). St Ives and Penzance are also nearby.

We rented the house via Stylish Cornish Cottages www.stylishcornishcottages.co.uk. Our contact was Phay MacDowel phay@stylishcornishcottages.co.uk, who arranged our stay and was always on hand to answer our queries in a very efficient and helpful way.

Comfortable, cosy, homely – we absolutely loved and adored this place. It’s not glitzy, it’s welcoming. It’s like the much loved aunt who will always love you in return, as opposed to the glamorous colleague who’s fab but doesn’t return your call. I cannot imagine a better place to spend a week or two – go and experience peace, beauty, never-go-out-of-fashion style and……relax…..

Wonderful comfortable house in a fantastic location

Three generations gathered in this lovely house for a warm Autumn week. The location could not have been better, with wide sweeping views out to sea, glorious sunsets, sails, seals and even a whale. The house was extremely comfortable and well appointed – it felt more like a home than a holiday home – and everything was included that was needed. Thank you for a wonderful week.

Kathy and I had one of the most wonderful holidays ever . What a fantastic place, it was so clean and well laid out. We felt so happy on the arrival and the master bedroom had great views and the bed was so comfortable if it was not the fact we were missing the unbelievable views first thing in the morning I could have easily stayed in the bed all day.

The walk along the coastal path was amazing taking us into the fishing village of Porthleven and an easy bus ride back wow a place we will always remember.
Thanks to yourself and your team in keeping this magical place in good shape for us all to hire .
All the best
