Our second summer break here, lovely place, lovely people. Our boys 5 and 8 years old just love this place, its spacious, safe and ideal for young kids. They have a pool with a cover so when the British weather lets you down you can still continue having fun in the pool, theres a also a hot tub which is also loved by the children. The beach is a 5 minute walk away, again a kid pleaser. The owners are fantastic and cannot do enough to help you enjoy your stay. They’ve really created something special here. Probably see you next summer!

A great holiday for two Grandparents and Granddaughter. Very well appointed apartment in excellent condition. The owners, Pam and Richard, very welcoming and helpful. Stunning garden and the use of a high summer house platform with barbeque facilities and great views of the bay. A blue dome makes the swimming pool usable in all weathers and because of so few apartments the pool is never crowded. Out of the pool, into the hot tub or visa versa, holidays are made of this. Five minutes walk to Portreath beach, 10 minutes drive to Hell’s Mouth and 15 minutes to Gwithian’s miles of golden sand. A 57 bus runs you to St. Ives (avoids the hassle of parking there) and most of Cornwall ‘must visits’ are all within easy reach. Perfect.

We have had great family holidays in Portreath in the past and our stay a Basset Acre did not disappoint in any way. We stayed in Basset Lookout which sleeps six which was perfect for myself my wife, our daughter and son-in-law with our two granddaughters. The apartment was clean and well presented with a well equipped kitchen area tucked in the lounge. The bedrooms were a good size and well appointed. The provision of a communal spin dryer and tumble dryer eliminated the need to have wet swimming costumes drip-drying in the bath room. When we arrived we were met by the owners Pat and Richard who were very friendly and immediately made us feel welcome. The facilities were excellent, we spent some time in the games room playing pool, table football and bagatelle, and the outside play area had the full approval of the grandchildren. The girl’s best place after the beach was the swimming pool which was deceptively large although not Olympic size and the Jacuzzi was also great fun and relaxing too. One of the highlights of our stay was getting a delicious Chinese takeaway from the shop a few yards away and watching the sun go down as we ate it on the decking with a fine bottle of wine. We all agreed that Basset Acre is a great place to spend a holiday and would definitely recommend it to all our friends and family. Thank you Pat and Richard, as you have thought of everything. We would love to visit again someday.

Wow, what a hidden little gem, located perfectly in Portreath. We stayed in baskets lookout the 3 bedroom apartment and it was just perfect a home from home. They really have thought of everything here, plenty for adults and kids and portreath is a
Overly little seaside town. Just 5 minutes from Cornwall gold, 5 min walk from the beach and there is some lovely little pubs round portreath too. We would recommend the bakery just a four minute walk. Lovely location would I return oh yes and I will push my friends and family to stay here too.
