We have just returned from Tregiffian Vean. Whilst it might benefit from a little updating and window clean, the house is lovely. It is comfortable and extremely spacious. I have read other reviews - we had no problems with the cooker or showers. The water was lovely and hot at all times. The bedding was spotless. The views are amazing - truly. There is a walk down to the beach (empty when we were there apart from the odd dog walker) and a longer coastal walk to Sennen Cove - with pub, shop, ice creams, board hire etc. It is secluded so, when we had a barbecue, (provided) we didn't feel that we were bothering neighbours with smoke or laughter! We went with our adult 'children' and have all agreed we will go again.

Amazing location, parts of house shabby and grubby.
The location is five star - overlooking the bay, with access right onto the coastal path. Lots to see and do. The house has no immediate neighbours. It is also huge. The upstairs sitting rooms are the nicest rooms. Suits a group of surfers or students. BUT... the interiors are shabby, and in places the woodwork is filthy. The lower bedrooms an bathroom smell of damp and there is evidence of it in the wardrobes which we did not use. There were ants all over the hall. Both the bathrooms have mould and are like something you'd find in an old pub or student accommodation. When we arrived there was a pubic hair on the windowsill of one. My daughter was sick for no reason and my son's asthma played up. It needs a deep clean and all the bits falling off/half-painted need sorting. The furniture needs replacing as it is faded and dirty. The only seating area on the patio was a peeling old picnic bench that had seen better days. All this I could accept had we not paid well over two thousand pounds for a stay of one week. The house is rated five star on the site we booked on (Sykes) so we felt misled. We've stayed in twenty plus properties in Cornwall and this was way below the standard we've experienced, Our review has not been posted on the site, nor have we been contacted so have chosen to post here.

Nice but challenging
Gas range in kitchen is challenging. Low gas pressure , gas rings kept going out. No baking trays provided so take your own. Log fire in the lounge blows back a lot of smoke. Remember to take everything like cooking oil and salt & pepper Cosy bedrooms overall not suitable for small children or disabled seniors - a lot of stairs with no handrails.
