“We had a fabulous time, could not fault the service or the accommodation.”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in the Anchorage with our 2 children of 4 and 7. The kids loved it, as did we. Great location, plenty of things in and around the accommodation to keep the children amused too. The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed, we had a very comfortable stay. It was great having the owners on hand for advice and recommendations, they are very welcoming and friendly. We hope to be back soon!

“A friendly, welcoming place suitable for families. An excellent location!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A superb location that had all the amenities required nearby (including take-away). Only a 10 minute walk to the beach (very safe walk). The pool was superb for young families and the hot tub brilliant for unwinding. Would highly recommend these apartments. Enjoyed a really relaxing family holiday.

“Brilliant Holiday”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a brilliant holiday. Weather and location were ideal and amazing. Great base for day trips and the beach ( only a 4 min walk ) was great.

We travelled with our son ( 9 months ) and he crawled for the first time here. Well done!

Owners were great and very accommodating and friendly. Brilliant.

Pool was such a great addition we absolutely loved it and feel it sets this accommodation apart from others. Loved it.

The gardens and grass area were perfect and brilliantly maintained.

Location was great an we did many day trips over the week.

Thank you very much and we are sure to return in future years.

“Wonderful Holiday”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Pool and hot tub were ours for the whole week, only 1 other family used them. Boys aged 12 and 7 loved it. We had BBQ 3 evenings up at the top to make the most of the fabulous view and Pam and Richard were brilliant hosts. Will definitely be staying there again.

“The perfect home away from home”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

From the morning we arrived I was instantly impressed with Bassetts Acre. Our apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean, fully equipped and a short stroll from the beach and amenities. The gardens in Bassetts Acre are a particular plus whether relaxing in the sun, having a swim in the heated pool, firing up one of the BBQs in the evening or taking in the sea view from the raised deck.

Pam and Richard provide the perfect attentive yet non intrusive service when needed and are always available with a helpful local tip or recommendation.

My wife and I spent a lovely week in Bassetts Acre with our baby daughter and would recommend it for young families, couples of all ages, and solo travellers. The perfect base to explore the many sites of Cornwall. We hope to return very soon.
