01/09/2015Grove CottageThank you very much, we all had a lovely time, great property in a beautiful spot.
01/13/2015FlintstonesWe thoroughly enjoyed our visit: Flintstones is a roomy and comfortable place and we had very good, and cheerful support from you when the boiler pump leaked and the fence blew down.
01/23/2015Grove CottageThank you ever so much for our stay, the cottage (Grove) was absolutely picturesque and we could not have asked for a better location. A great get away.
02/07/2015WarnecliffeBeautiful house - thank you.
02/13/2015Cape CodThank you all. We enjoyed a superb weekend and we look forward to another stay at Constantine.
02/13/2015CurlewsFabulous stay - in a lovely house - many thanks.
02/14/2015MorvorenWe really enjoyed our stay at Morvoren and the views of the bay are amazing, and we all loved the house it was like home from home.
02/15/2015Pensile House CottageWe had a lovely time.
02/15/2015Treyarnon PointThe bin area at Treyarnon Point was very messy and the welcome text messages only got to us on Thursday. Apart from that the house was perfect and would be made worse by modernisation!
02/18/2015High TidesWe had a really lovely stay at High Tides and thought Patrick's recommendation was spot on.
02/22/2015The PeakWe loved our week in February.
02/23/2015Pensile House CottageWe really enjoyed staying at Pensile House Cottage.

Thanks for all your help - you have a great team!
02/27/2015Santa MarinaWe all thought the property was amazing on the whole.....fabulous location, with easy access to great walking, lovely beaches and excellent food all just a short drive or walk away.
The facilities in the house were great and the layout on the whole worked for us, kitchen and table area perfect for a group of 9, (maybe a bit more fridge space would have been useful), loved the beds, very comfortable and wonderful linen! The only real negative for us, or what might have made the weekend better, as a party of nine adults, during this time of year, was that it would have been so much better to have had the 'big' screen in the front room so that we could all sit around comfortably with the fire and watch movies etc,( this room didn't really get used as a result).......yes perhaps a smaller TV in the kitchen area also would be good, but we had to move various chairs around to try and accommodate us all in this small space. Aside from this the only other 'gripe' people had was....perhaps a couple of spare toilet rolls would have been nice in each of the toilets, parking possibly an issue if more than a couple of cars, and the internet issue was mildly annoying.
02/27/2015White WallsWe had a great time thank you.
03/05/2015TrenevekWe had an excellent weekend at Trenevek, including excellent weather, and the only reason for not expressing an interest for next year is that we will have to find a weekend that suits us all nearer the time, but hopefully there will availability in low season.

We've been on many such 'winter weekends' together and this house ranks amongst the most popular. It's position is great and it's generally very well equipped though there were two 'issues'!

Firstly, we struggled to fit all our refrigerated goods into the one fridge - it really needs a second one and we wondered whether there has previously been one in an empty corner under the central island? We ended up using the pantry which is OK during cooler weather but would not provide enough space had the weather been any warmer - it's amazing how much food and drink 10 people get through in four days!!

Secondly, both I and one other guest are familiar with Agas, and we wondered whether it had been off for a while and only switched on at the last minute. It wasn't up to temperature for a couple of days. I turned the dial up and then put it back before we left.

Anyway, I just thought I'd mention these two things, the first being more important than the second given that there is an alternative means of cooking.

I will keep an eye on your website next autumn and we'll hopefully be able to take the house again early next year. I'd be interested to know about the fridge situation...
03/06/2015CheyneyAn amazing stay at Cheyney again such a beautiful house and part of your Cornwall.
03/06/2015Commons Meadow HouseMany thanks for the prompt return of my security deposit.

We had a great stay at Commons Meadow House, everything was great, and the games room was a massive hit with our (grown up) kids. The cake was delicious and the only complaint was that it didn't last long enough (the cake and the holiday)!!

We look forward to booking with you again later in the year.
03/06/2015Trevethan HouseWe thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Trevethan House as the house was exceptional. The cake and tea on arrival was very unexpected and a great touch, so thanks for that.
03/06/2015WispaIn fact we enjoyed ourselves so much, we most definitely would stay again.
03/09/2015Grove CottageWe have just arrived back in Ireland after a most enjoyable few days in Grove Cottage.
03/15/2015CurlewsAs usual everything was great and it was a pleasure dealing with you guys again. Plus, the weather was perfect for the whole week so that was a real bonus!

There was just one minor issue you might like to know about in that the second email I received with the information about the stay had a different code for the keysafe than the original email. I printed the second email off but when I tried the code shown we couldn't get in. Anyway I managed to get on to my email not too long afterward and tried the code in the first email and it worked so wasn't a problem.
03/21/2015The BuckGreat hols, thank you.
03/27/2015CheyneyWe had a lovely time thanks Anna.
03/27/2015Grove CottageCan I personally thank you and your excellent team for a complete service from start to finish which made the whole experience and stay very enjoyable for us and our family who travelled from far and wide to enjoy a lovely house in the finest part of England!! our compliments to the cleaners who were wonderful……two hard working and really pleasant young men who did a fine job for us!
03/27/2015Parc VeanThank you for returning our deposit. I have received it.
Thank you for always responding quickly to emails and dealing with our requests so efficiently.
It has been an extremely wonderful stay at Parc Vean.
Many thanks to you and your colleagues for fantastic customer care/service in ensuring our holiday went smoothly.
03/27/2015Santa MarinaWe loved this house. The only issue was in the strong winds the sash windows rattled enough in the small front bedroom to wake me up. This was resolved by a member of your team once I had called in, but perhaps some guidance as to how to prevent this happening in advance could have saved me a couple of nights sleep?!
03/27/2015South CornerMore cleaning products please! Was no spray cleaner this year
03/27/2015Trevethan HouseThanks for a wonderful service
03/28/2015TorridonWell as you must know by now, we have completed our 4 night stay.
I must thank you for the lovely chocolate cake that was left for , we could not finish it all as only one of us were eating chocolate.
The weather could have been a little better, but it was nice to have a break away.

I have mixed feelings about the house though.
I agree with the 4 bedrooms, but I feel mislead regarding the facilities.

IE: Listed as :

Baths 1
Showers 2
King size double ensuite.

So as far as we were concerned,
We had one ensuite, with a shower. ( not a shower over the bath ). Which we found difficult.!
2 shower rooms,
1 bathroom.
So we were lacking an extra toilet as far as we were concerned.

As we all like to have our own bathroom or shower room, we did not have it in this case, so felt misad.
There was also lack of wardrobe space and mirr
We have always had good service from Raintree previously, The house from the outside looked really nice, but I thought I had better mention my thoughts inside. Hoping to use your services in the future, but will maybe ask more questions next time regarding the facilities listed.
03/28/2015WarnecliffeWe had a great time, despite the weather. Trevone is such a lovely village, we would all love to come back and make full use of the fantastic beach.

Thanks for all your help with the holiday, we regularly go away and you've been the most helpful company we've dealt with!
03/29/2015St PetrocIt was an excellent holiday, lovely house in a fantastic position - thank you for everything and always love the high quality linen and towels too! Comments: a new kitchen bin would be good! Bins in the loos would also be good given that sanitary products should not be put down the loo. A mop would be helpful (couldn't find one anywhere) - otherwise wonderful and thanks.

What could have made your holiday better this year? Please let us know below. 7 DAYS OF SUN BUT WE WERE LUCKY - WE HAD 3!
03/31/2015PenporThe handle that controls the heat on the shower upstairs doesn’t work - I think it lost its grip - just turns round and round.

We have loved Penpor and had a great stay.
04/02/2015CobsWe had a great stay at Cobs and were so lucky with the gorgeous weather!
04/02/2015Lamorna CottageAnother great week!
04/02/2015MerrymorMerrymor proved very comfortable and met our needs well in all respects. The house and garden is a little tight for space and lacks outlook, but the conservatory addition to the kitchen was a very good feature. The electrics tripped on three occasions - disliking the toaster/grill we suspect. Also, access to the garden/rear was awkward. Pretty much everything had to come through the front door. If we had had a full house of 7 an extra chair would have been necessary. Lots of pluses, however, and we were blessed with excellent weather.
Raintree also came up trumps - the house was well prepared and a problematic hoover was replaced almost immediately. Thank you.
04/02/2015South TamariskThe set up of ST was fantastic very well thought out home there were 12 of us and we were not on top of each other at all - no waiting on bathrooms- kitchen was well organised and plenty of everything - I cook so it's like being home from home.
We love BBC but there are only 6 rooms there so unless we lose some of the members (lol) it's probably not quite big enough
7 Bedroomed houses are our choices that are dog friendly for our well behaved dogs Luna & Bella
04/02/2015TorridonWe really had the best time - amazing and unexpected weather and Torridon worked so well for our group and is so very well located for the beach and the shells and everything gorgeous in Trevone! We REALLY didn't want to come home!
The weather is great here too so that is helping a little bit!
04/02/2015WindrushesVery nice!
04/03/2015Booby`s Bay CottageWe had a lovely holiday as usual at our favourite house. Everyone enjoyed their stay.
Everything was as it should problems. Thank you all.
04/04/2015Constantine Bay CottageLovely house, well appointed. Greatly appreciated the tea tray, cake and pint of milk! New back door definitely a bonus for the morning sun. Kitchen is well equipped. Good choice of books & Dvds. Only small thing was we tried to have a bath but we couldn't get the water temp hot enough. We turned up the boiler dial but no difference. The shower was fine though so only mention it in case something needs adjusting?
04/04/2015WarnecliffeWe all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Warnecliffe. Thank you for the delicious chocolate cake etc. which was waiting for us when we arrived.

This was a special holiday for us because my husband and I were celebrating our Golden Wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren (and their three dogs!). I'm sure we'll be back at some point but probably not next Easter.
04/07/2015PenporYes thank you, we had a lovely time at Penpor, the house was beautiful, perfect location and we were very lucky with the weather.
04/07/2015The BuckFantastic location, smashing house but bathroom facilities not great for 8 people.
04/09/2015PenjerrickMany thanks for the sponge cake left for our arrival. It was a lovely gesture and the cake was delicious! Beautiful, well equipped and furnished house. We were very happy here. We greatly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was delightful and very well furnished and equipped.
And best of all, the sun shone for all four days we were in Cornwall (but lacking wet suits, we did not attempt an April swim!).
04/10/2015HighviewThank you so much, everything was perfect.
04/10/2015South CornerWe had an excellent holiday,the weather favoured us , the house was very well equipped and fitted our needs perfectly, the view was brilliant. Please do tell the owners how much we all enjoyed staying in their property.Having been coming to Trevose for over 40 years it was a huge surprise to see the wreck at Boobys Bay,amazing what storms can do!
04/10/2015Torridonoyed our stay at Torridon. The house was great and had everything we needed. As you are already aware the only issue was the drains which did get progressively worse resulting in the shower not draining at all yesterday morning – hopefully it has been fixed now. Your company were very easy to deal with, really helpful and the house was beautifully clean on our arrival. The cake went down extremely well and the milk in the fridge was a nice gesture too– particularly as our Tesco delivery wasn’t due until 5pm!

04/11/2015Carnavis CottageThanks - we all really enjoyed the week at Carnavis Cottage.
04/11/2015RoseveanLovely property AC
04/15/2015The BuckGreat house, fantastic location. Many thanks for the delicious cake! We have just got home after our amazing visit to the buck and we would all like to say how wonderful your property is and I would personally like to thank you for your card and birthday cake, it was a lovely and tasty surprise.

I hope you find everything is good at the property. We did put the bin out but it hadn't been collected before we left. We have left some money to cover a couple of phone calls. Please let me know if there are any problems.

Thank you again and we are already trying to organise our next trip.
04/17/2015White WallsWe thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it was absolutely perfect for what we needed in every way.
04/19/2015Treyarnon PointAnother fab week here - enverything perfect except the lane to the house which is awful. The stones are so sharp. Lots of dog poo in the small garden on arrival. We had a really wonderful time as always thanks
04/23/2015WarnecliffeThank you – we had the most amazing time.

The house was beautiful, it had everything we needed and some super lux features (like the towels!). I have no doubt that some of us will want to come back at some point.

Thank you!
04/24/2015Grove CottageThank you - we had a delightful few days in Grove Cottage, blessed by better weather than we had been promised and we celebrated my wife’s entrance to a new decade in great comfort and style. The cottage is in a perfect location ( despite some idiotic comments in the visitor’s book about it being too close to the graveyard! ), beautifully warm and welcoming and expertly equipped. You seem to have thought of so many of those little things, which my wife and I ( being one time owners of a Country House Hotel ) and all of us thoroughly appreciated. To have top quality beds, linen and towels is one of those luxuries often overlooked and in fact obliges one to question the quality of those one has at home!
If I may, one small and very inexpensive addition to the bedroom accoutrements would be a box of tissues - the ladies always seem to require these for all sorts of applications and removals and would, I am sure, be appreciated by your future guests.

04/24/2015PenjerrickIt was lovely to have tea and cake left by lisa for our arrival. A very lovely cottage perfect for me.
04/24/2015TregarneWe had a lovely stay in Tregarne. We had a family holiday with our two daughters who are now 21 and 23 and still love going to Cornwall. It was great to be so near the beach we usually have to get in the car! The property was very clean, spacious and well equipped.
04/25/2015Constantine Bay CottageWe had a brilliant week, the cottage was absolutely gorgeous and in a wonderful position for the beach. Only downside is that it doesn't have a sea view, for that reason we will probably book one of the ones with views for Autumn next year.

The breakfast and vegetable boxes were great would highly recommend them to other guests. It was also a lovely touch to have a nice cake waiting on the table when we arrived. Very thoughtful.
04/26/2015Treyarnon PointWe had a great holiday last week (April 26- May 3) at Treyarnon Point, we loved the spacious accommodation, proximity to the beach, child-friendly garden, sumptuously comfy beds, new sofas in the lounge and well-resourced kitchen.
We have some small suggestions for improving it still further:
the kitchen badly needs a new bin with a lid that works
the breakfast room floor has many loose tiles
the window-seats in the lounge are threadbare in places & likely to rip at any moment!
The house has a lovely cosy feel and we enjoy the fact that it isnt as stylish and fashionable as some of the other properties on your books. Thank you for the lovely jam sponge and tea-making bits to greet us on arrival also.
04/30/2015South TamariskWe had a lovely stay in a really great house. We did find the toaster a bit sensitive! one minute it worked fine and the next it burnt the bread, depending on how it was cut.. We had toast the first night and in the morning found it had tripped the switch, turning off the fridge and kettle.
I'm only mentioning this in case you hear of it happening to someone else. It's not easy to get at the trip switch.
Our pianist said the piano is not in tune but I guess everyone has a go, and is to be expected.
Please would you take my security deposit off of what I owe for Trevenek in September.

Many thanks to you all at Raintree for giving such a great service. The house was spotless..…
04/30/2015Trenevek We really enjoyed our stay/house/service. Only slight negative was that there were a couple of items missing from the food packs we got from you.
05/01/2015Grove CottageIt would have been nice if coffee/ tea and milk were already in the house, as there is no shop close by.

We were also missing a toast rack in the kitchen- but it was otherwise very well equipped.

The beds and bedding were LOVELY! So comfortable!! We didn't want to get out of them in a morning!

It was a great stay and I will defiantly recommend it to others.
05/05/2015The Buckthanks we had a great time totally relaxing!
05/06/2015ThalassaHello thank you yes we would love to register our interest in coming back next May, well we had a really lovely time at Thalassa and were so lucky with the weather, we and the dogs had a great time walking the cliffs and the whole experience was super. We have been stayed at Thalassa twice before and cannot fault it, the garden is wonderful and the situation so close to the sea is a treat. Thank you again and we will be back quite soon, best wishes Sandra and Jim.
05/08/2015Booby`s Bay CottageIt would be great to go again in spring next year and would love you to reserve a week for us in May 2016...The flowers on the coast path were fantastic. The same week would be great...or the next one if the price doesn't go up too much.
05/09/2015Constantine Bay CottageBack in rainy Stockport after our lovely break at Constantine Bay cottage. Just to say thanks to everyone and to say how much we enjoyed our second stay in this lovely house in a beautiful location. So much walking,sitting on the beach,eating at the Cornish Arms and drinking overlooking the beach at the youth hostel on the outside seating,and that's just Harry the dog! We loved it too. Please let us know when we can book for next year. Thank you
05/10/2015CobsWe enjoyed our time in Cornwall & hope to visit again.
05/10/2015Little TowanEverything was superb! Everything however small was thought of!
05/10/2015The PeakWe all had a fantastic time, and will definitely book with you again!
05/10/2015Treyarnon Point
Everything as usual was wonderful.
05/13/2015ThalassaI had another enjoyable week at Thalassa. The house was lovely and warm with the storage heaters.There seemed to be less lighting in lounge,maybe a standard reading lamp would be good for the evenings. The tv reception was breaking up quite a lot,not sure if it was the TV or signal? The house was very clean and beds good.
05/14/2015PenjerrickOur first stay there and it was absolutely wonderful. THANK YOU.
The cottage is just gorgeous - what a credit to you !
05/14/2015WindrushesWe had a wonderful time away and were stunned at the views from Windrushes. It commands a lovely position, so much so that my parents would like to come back next year!. The cake was a really nice touch after a long journey down from Wiltshire, thank you.
05/15/2015High TidesGreat thank you, we had a wonderful time at High Tides it was a lovely house and perfect for our family. We hope to come back soon.
05/15/2015HighviewI also wanted to say thank you. We had a wonderful stay and were very impressed with the house and the little touches, as well as the excellent customer service from your office. A very enjoyable stay and I will be sure to recommend you to family and friends as well as to make you the first point of contact when visiting the area in the future.
05/15/2015Parc VeanLovely house - great area - will be back
05/15/2015Pensile House CottageWe had a lovely time.
05/15/2015WispaThe accommodation was just about right for us, it was clean and spacious and tick all the boxes.
05/16/2015Sailaway I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay in Sailaway. It is a super house, so well equipped and fantastic location ( we know the area well from previous holidays). Really appreciated the professionalism of Raintree as well. We will definitely come back !
05/16/2015TorridonWe had a lovely time and the property was just right. It was clean and well equipped and felt like a home from home. We will certainly think about booking it again.
05/21/2015Aquataine AnnexeJust to say thank you so much for arranging this weekend – the house was perfect and we had such a great time. You asked us for any suggestions for the house, generally there aren’t any as its perfect but there are a couple of things that might be useful for future guests – nothing major but have put them below so I hope that’s helpful and it’s not at all meant as criticism.

It would be great if there was a broom just to sweep up sand rather than getting the hoover out.
There isn’t anything to BBQ with and we didn’t want to ruin the cutlery so just fyi but again nothing major.
When we were cleaning up there isn’t any grouting between the sink, the bath and the kitchen sink attaching it to the wall so its quite hard not to get water down the sides so might just be worth considering so the walls don’t get ruined.

05/22/2015CheyneyWe very much enjoyed our stay at Cheney
05/22/2015Grove CottageThank you for your email , we had a super time at Grove Cottage. It was so peaceful in the hamlet, just what some of our party needed after a hectic time at their workplace. My daughter would have loved to live in the cottage permanently.
We will certainly look at your website again when booking a holiday.
05/22/2015High TidesWe all had a great time thank you which if anything was far too short a time, but school and work calls. Would thoroughly recommend your company to friends and family.
05/22/2015PenjerrickPenjerrick worked out really well for us
05/22/2015RidgegroveIt is a great house. We enjoyed Cornwall as always
05/22/2015South TamariskGood morning ....... We have just been clearing and cleaning after our stay , we have had such a lovely time. Our children and grandchildren have enjoyed the beaches, surfing, bike rides and pasties as well as so much more. I have to report we found the house very comfortable and well equipped a beautiful place to stay.

Thank you all who made our holiday so fantastic. We will be back as 2 of our next generation have discovered the surf!!
05/22/2015St PetrocThanks for a lovely holiday
05/23/2015SailawayAs always a brilliant house for all of us, but as mentioned in previous years an outside shower of some sort by the back door, would make a good house, great!
05/23/2015Trevethan HouseA very enjoyable week for the family. Kitchen very well stocked and comfortable. Little concerned about the cracks in the west wall. Trevethan House has proved to be an ideal place for all the family to get together for a week
05/23/2015WindrushesWe had an amazing time at Windrushes. The view was better than I could have imagined and the walk to the beach made it so much
easier for the children. ( and the adults carrying them!!) we couldn’t get the 6yr old out of the water (!!) so it was easy for one of
us to stay with him and the others can go back and forth .
The dogs had an amazing time too!!!
A couple of extra sun beds would have been useful though!!!
05/24/2015Booby`s Bay CottageWe really did have a wonderful time and would love to book for the same week next year, if possible. It worked so well, my husband was able to work and the kids could revise and then race down to the beach for some fun!
05/24/2015Cape CodCape Cod was extremely comfortable , very well equipped and a lovely garden.
Our parties age range was from 14 to 85 and all were very happy with the house .
We visit this area regularly – but I can say that this was the best location we have had, as we really enjoyed the close proximity to the beach – (and short run back after a cold swim !!)
Our only one complaint would be that the fold out bed in the small downstairs bedroom was very uncomfortable . We ordered an additional duvet to put under us to help this matter – ( as we had several single people in our party it was necessary to use this room ) I hope that we will not be charged for the additional duvet as this was only to compensate for the uncomfortable bed.
We will not take up the offer to re-book the same house for next year as we do not know our plans yet – but I feel sure that we will use Raintree again in the future as we were very happy with the house and the service .
05/24/2015WarnecliffeWe really liked the downstairs layout of the house - it made for a great sociable family holiday. Being very picky we would have liked to have had a microwave and somewhere to dry our clothes - a washing line or an airer. Also, the lack of wardrobes in the upstairs bedrooms felt like we were living out of our bags. These are minor comments, that did not affect the enjoyment of our holiday. We?d also like to thank the very kind Raintree lady that let us have a look around the 2 other properties you let out in ?The Close?. I?m sure we?ll be back to the North Cornish coast in the next few years, but next year we are venturing to the Pembrokeshire coast!! Thank you.
05/27/2015TregarneWe had a fabulous time.
Many thanks
05/28/2015MorvorenMorvoren is really nice, and yes we would like to come again.
05/29/2015Booby`s Bay CottageJust a quick line to say thank you for listening patiently to my list of things about Booby’s Bay Cottage.

We love it there and hope to be able to rent it again next year on the same dates. We will look forward to your mail about it in due course.
Many friends have smiled about the hearing aid battery in the dish washer.
Hope you summer is busy/successful for you
05/29/2015Lamorna CottageWe had a very nice holiday in Cornwall. Lamorna is a very comfortable and well equipped house and we really enjoyed our time there. We hope to return.
05/29/2015Pensile House CottageMany thanks for the warm welcome. Everything is allright. A wonderful restored house. It's a pleasure for us to stay here
05/29/2015RidgegroveI would just like to say thanks to yourself and the team at raintree for an amazing stay, the house was unbelievable and everyone enjoyed there stay. We have put all the dirty laundry in the utility room and swept/hoovered all the floors and filled the dishwasher and left it running. Will speak to the guys and see if they are keen for a return trip next year.
Thanks again for an awesome stay
05/29/2015South TamariskDiana came into the office and advised they have had a wonderful time at South Tamarisk and the house is perfect for all their needs, great for access with the wheelchair all around the ground floor, plenty of space in the garage for all their storage needs for beach wheelchair etc. and also easy access in and out to the garden with the wheelchair - cannot fault the house, perfect for them in every way and very praiseful for the standard of the clean by the housekeeping teams also.
05/29/2015ThalassaWe love Thalassa but the TV signal or TV itself needs attention as picture pixillates & sound cuts out spoiling enjoyment of programmes.
Also would be great if we could have WiFi access please.
05/29/2015White WallsWe had a very good week although the weather could have been kinder.
The house was lovely and the little extras that were left by Raintree house were a good touch.
For us as a family we found no doors on the en-suite bathrooms unusual but for one week you can live with it.
I did make a comment on the sheet at the house about the oven gloves in this house being dangerous, they had wholes and were too small that you could only use it in one hand.
I felt this was a safety issue and one of my family did burn themselves due to the hole.
05/29/2015WispaWe thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Wispa and thought it was a lovely house. We would like to come again but maybe for longer next time..! Once we have any dates in mind I will be sure to contact you.
05/30/2015PenjerrickYes we had a great week thanks. Weather not brilliant but at least we had the beach to ourselves a couple of times.

Thanks for the cake too! A pleasant surprise when you get through the door after a long journey.
05/31/2015Treyarnon PointWe love the house and the views and would like to return next year please 🙂
Thank you and the owners for a great place to stay.
05/31/2015WarnecliffeThank you very much for letting me know. We were all delighted with Warnecliffe, it is a very comfortable house indeed and the towels, mattresses and bed linen were very high quality - I would be interested to know where they bought the mattresses in fact! The whole house is presented to a very high standard, but is very homely and welcoming. The outside space is perfect for a barbecue or just enjoying the sun. Our dog Stan also enjoyed the garden and the rocky beach!

We had a very enjoyable time there with our friends and would definitely consider coming back.
06/04/2015MorvorenHouse immaculate as ever.
06/04/2015PenamontWe had a really good few days at Penamont. Everything was perfect - house, weather, golf, friends..... As it was a one off birthday celebration it is unlikely to happen again! So I do not need to reserve for next year.
06/04/2015TrenevekWe had a great time as usual and the house was super.
The patio doors off the living room are very stiff and could do with some tlc.
Also on a nice to have; it could do with a new non stick pan and a steamer pan is useful when cooking for larger numbers on 4 rings.
06/05/2015Booby`s Bay CottageAs ever, all perfect thank you.
Much looking forward to coming back on August 7th.
06/05/2015RidgegroveFor feedback we thought the property was excellent, certainly one of the best equipped we have stayed in. If I were asked to pick fault I would highlight two things
1. Only 2 of the bedrooms had wardrobes. As we were in 3 groups it meant that 2 of the groups had to share
2. It looked like there had previously been a stair gate on the stairs to the second level, but this was no longer there. With the equipment it has this property would be very attractive to families and being able to stop small children getting upstairs would be very useful. Quite often our youngest would have got half way up before we got to him.
That said these are minor points. We loved the property and would certainly stay there again
06/06/2015Aquataine LodgeWe had the most fantastic week and the house is superb. We really didn't want to stray far with that beautiful beach at the end of the drive. We spent hours on the balcony relaxing in the sunshine. Heaven. No negatives but the loungers due would have been ideal.
Wardrobes or clothes rails would have made hanging clothes easier and perhaps a few more pans/frying pans.
None of these points detracted from enjoying our stay and we would be pleased if you could save the same week next year for us please.
06/06/2015BosporthennisWe love the location of this house and really liked the improvements to it from the last time we stayed. Not sure if the washing machine is working correctly as it didn’t seem to automatically move through the cycle and after about 3 hours we had to manually move it on.
06/06/2015Constantine Bay CottageExcellent booking procedure
. Lovely cottage, clean and comfortable
Nice touch to offer change of linen and general clean at end of week one.
Nice touch to leave tea and cake, also other basics.
Nothing could be improved
06/06/2015SailawayWe had a great time at Sailaway. It is a lovely, spacious house and the owners have thought of everything. I would have no hesitation in recommending it. We loved out holiday at Sailaway. The house lived up to all our expectations and more!
All our needs were catered for.
I'm not registering interest for another week, because it was a rare family holiday together, but I would certainly recommend Sailaway. p.s. My daughter mentioned that an extra handset for the Sega mega drive would be appreciated - a small point!
06/06/2015SeascapeWe had a wonderful holiday in Seascape . The house was as expected from the description and worked very well with 6 adults in the house.
Everything was there that we needed for cooking , crockery,communication and entertainment. The breakfast deal was much appreciated by the men and we were able to top it up from the farm shop and the shop in the village.

If I had to be picky and it is being VERY picky I would suggest a clear out of the shed and on the top of the kitchen cupboard.

I don't think we will be going back to Cornwall next year as we tend to move counties for the Family holiday.
However I will be very happy to recommend you to my friends, as I know my 2 daughters will also be spreading the word amongst their friends.
Thank you for your help and very professional way you run your Company.
06/06/2015The RidingsJust a quick note to let you know that all has been peaceful this week after our slight concerns at the start of the week. Please do pass on our thanks to Jerry. We have had a wonderful time and very much enjoyed both the house and Trevone.
06/08/2015South TamariskWe had a brilliant time, the house was just wonderful and suited us perfectly. I have already emailed Anna to say we are very interested for June 2016. Just a couple of points, whilst we were there one of the wheels broke off one of the sun loungers, when we checked it we noticed it had already been broken and someone had glued the wheel back on!
Also we like to leave the house clean when we leave but found the hoover was fine whilst using the tools but pretty hopeless when using the actual hoover.
06/10/2015ThalassaJust to say how much we enjoyed Thalassa and it's closeness to the fantastic Constantine Bay.

I left a note and we felt for the Gulls which can be a pain but perhaps both of the chicks died. They real attacked us on day two and three. Dive bombing us and even throwing their back end release at us?
Our son stayed at Thalassa last year and recommended it to us and we will certainly do the same.
06/13/2015BosporthennisWe had a great time and hope to return next year
06/13/2015HighviewHad a lovely stay - kitchen and bedroom door latches need replacing - blinds needed in kitchen and lounge and blackout blinds would be useful in bedrooms. Some hob burners don't work. No instructions for microwave - more plug sockets needed in playroom
06/13/2015SailawayMattress in master bedroom could have been more comfortable, it was rather hard and thin ☹ other than that, we were delighted with the property and it had everything you needed.
06/13/2015TrenleyMany thanks, we have all enjoyed our week in this delightful, well equipped house.
06/14/2015Tresillian CottageThank you as well for such a lovely stay. We all really enjoyed coming back to Tresillian. Its a great house with room to be altogether but plenty of space to be a little quieter if you want.
Thanks to everyone at Raintree
06/16/2015Aquataine AnnexeExcellent holiday spent in a lovely apartment. Couldn't fault our accommodation (apart from the dodgy plastic chairs on the balcony) minor gripe. Would definitely stay there again and would like to register my interest for next year if poss same two weeks.
06/16/2015FlintstonesWe had a lovely time at Flintstones and the house worked well for us, we are interested in next year as indicated below.

Our only comments being.
All the knives were old and blunt and the sharpener was not a lot of use.
The instructions for internet were incorrect and need updating.
We needed to use the heating a couple of times and the instructions were not clear enough for the rather obscure time in the cupboard.
The washing machine broke down on the first day and the washing machine drain next to the garage was blocked.
06/16/2015The BuckWe had a lovely week in the Buck.
06/17/2015CurlewsThank you for your email. We had a brilliant holiday, curlews was a lovely house and suited our needs perfectly, we would not hesitate to recommend the house or your services to our friends and family. We particularly appreciated the tea and cake that was provided for our arrival, just what we needed after a 5 hour drive.

I don't think we would want to register our interest for the same house/week next year only because the family have been to Constantine now a few times and probably want to explore other options, but we will definitely be keeping you in mind for our next holiday.
06/18/2015MorvorenWe had yet another great 2 weeks in Cornwall this year and we didn’t break anything (you may be aware of last year’s incident with the “lazy susan”!)

06/18/2015WestwindsThank you for your email- we had a wonderful time at Westwinds.
06/19/2015High TidesCockerel next door woke adults and children 4 am may be good to warn in advance, lovely house well presented and equipped
06/19/2015Lamorna CottageWe really enjoyed our week at Lamorna and want to come again next year. However at the moment we don't know for sure what week we would require. Also a bit hesitant about booking early as the weeks either side of the one we booked were reduced by appro ?270 .
As I said we had a great holiday but do feel that the house could do with an updated BBQ. Other than that , all was well.
06/19/2015RidgegroveGreat House and they thoroughly enjoyed their stay there but Mrs Priestly advised that - 1. Not enough sun loungers, the two that were there were not great and no cushions for them. 2. The wooden cot cannot be moved out of the room it is in as too wide for doors. 3. Lack of cupboards/wardrobes in bedrooms - very good service from Raintree
06/19/2015WispaFabulous house - really enjoyed our stay!We had a great time at Wispa and thought the house was fabulous - so well equipped and in a wonderful location.
The only adverse comment I could make (and certainly not a complaint!!) is that the 2 grandmas in our family slept in a twin room and they could have done with a little wardrobe to hang clothes.

Many thanks again and I hope we can come back sometime.
06/20/2015RoseveanWe had a superb holiday and thought the property was perfect for our needs especially the garden. Although we thought the 15 minute walk from beach was a little underestimated especially with the uphill return with 2 and 3 year old children.
Obviously we had transport so it wasn't a problem and this is not a complaint merely an observation.
We would also like to advise you that the drainage from the upstairs shower and kitchen was very slow and overflowed onto the little seating area at the front causing a muddy and dirty frontage and the property has lost a roof tile broken pieces of which were outside the back door.

I look forward to receiving my refund and thank your company for your helpful and efficient service.
06/21/2015Little TowanThanks, we had a great time and loved the property.
06/21/2015The PeakWe had a great week staying at The Peak
I thought it was a lovely house in a fantastic location.
Please can you put me down as interested in the same week next year.
06/21/2015Tresillian CottageWe were very happy with Tresillian Cottage it had been brightened up and had a lick of paint we were happy with most things my daughter and granddaughter were in the bedroom by the back entrance and they said the mattresses were a bit uncomfortable but a change of bed and not having your own bed can be a consideration otherwise all was well. We had a lovely holiday as we always have at Tresillian Cottage.
06/23/2015LanhydrockPerfect for dog - of course holiday not all about our dog! We thoroughly enjoyed too and liked the sense of going back to something good that has been tried and tested. Last year was a disaster and couldnt really relax because of scaffolding issues - this time we realised how much last year was spoilt by the painters etc and this year we really relaxed.
06/23/2015Trevethan HouseLovely as usual and delighted with new sofa covers.
06/24/2015ThalassaWe have loved our stay here and would recommend to others. Constantine bay is gorgeous. Tea and cake welcome after our 4 hour journey.
06/25/2015MerrymorWe could not open the garage door or use any of the items stored there. A garden umbrella would have been nice. Otherwise lovely property!
06/25/2015VeilsfieldA coffee filter machine would be an added
bonus - because if you are making coffee for more than 2 people the alternatives the house provides do not work!! Also there needs to be an electric plug
provided for electric razors (you very kindly supplied one for us after phone call to the office - thanks) To hang washing on line - very few pegs provided - presume
they must ‘go walkabout’ but it is annoying with windy weather. Not sure how you deal with the noise from the kingsize bed upstairs - the person in the bedroom below hears
every time you turn over (did mention it last year- but still the same problem!) I know the above perhaps seems rather ’nit picking but you did ask!! The service of Raintree-
I have found this to be excellent - it’s so nice to speak to knowledgeable people - who if they don’t have an answer find out and let you know - so well done to you all -
would certainly recommend you as a company - the little touches of the cake and tea left are excellent - thank you all very much - including the cleaners
06/25/2015WindrushesWe had a wonderful time at Windrushes, thank you for organising it. However it was difficult and disappointing not to have a phone line/wi-fi for the first five days, and no mobile reception and we were mortified to chip the large salad bowl on our last morning - perhaps these two things should balance each other out?

06/26/2015HighviewJust to say everything is great with the holiday.
The house is amazing with every facility we need and that view truly is amazing.
Thank you also for the cake on arrival - it was delicious. So good in fact I am going to ask if you could let me know the bakery you got it from?
The house had the most fabulous view and was so well kitted out. I have never seen so many glasses, cutlery, plates etc in a holiday house!

There were just a few little things in the house that we thought could do with being looked at. Please note though that these did not in anyway spoil our holiday - they are purely suggestions for the owners.

The way the house has been furnished with the large dining room table, coloured chairs etc is lovely but we feel this was let down by the flooring in the downstairs I.e the big gap in the flooring just before stairs. It wouldn't take much to fix and would improve the look so much.

We thought the table football was a great idea but unfortunately it was almost unplayable as so wobbly! Prob best removed (or replaced ). Thankfully we spent all our time outside so not an issue.

Similarly with the outside swing etc - although useable it was used with caution as very wobbly.

The decking space and outside seating facilities were first class and we loved spending time there - it would be even nicer though if the decking posts etc were maintained and painted.

In terms of cleanliness everything was clethank you for aned to a high standard.
06/26/2015Santa MarinaSilly small things: hooks on back of doors particularly in shower room, extra chair in TV room (probably no space) Otherwise, wonderful house and SO well equipped, and thanks for the cake! Fantastic House and a great holiday!
06/26/2015St PetrocI was very pleased with the services of Raintree both regarding the booking procedure and the speedy way my complaint about a blown fuse was dealt with on the first night. The mid-stay cleaning and linen change was also well done and worthy of note. Thank you for asking the team to clean the windwows after I mentioned it. As far as the house is concerned, of course it is: location, location, location but here are some ideas to be shared with the owners:

Badly stained rug in the TV room where the furniture is also faded, stained and very tired.

The 1960's kitchen may be marketed as "stylish" but we found it more than anything annoying with drawers and doors that didn't function properly.

Not having a proper shower inside the house was also inconvenient.
For the price of two weeks let, the kitchen could be modernised and a shower installed in the house!

May I suggest that glass chopping boards are replaced by proper wooden ones, we ended up buying one and bringing it back with us as we had taken our own kitchen knives which glass chopping boards damage.
I was also surprised that a comercial let did not have safety glass panes on an inside door.

I have recommended your website to my friends and hope to return to Cornwall in two years time.
06/26/2015White Wallswe had a fantastic time, thank you the house was beautiful and was perfect for our family. I don't think it can be improved!

Thank you
06/27/2015BosporthennisWe had a great time thank you and would like to register for next year.

The house would benefit from a radio in the kitchen and new curtains in twin bedroom.
06/27/2015Constantine Bay CottageVery enjoyable stay in a well kept, convenient & pleasant accomodation with tasteful d?cor in idyllic surroundings - Thank you
06/27/2015Parc VeanThe holiday was great, really disappointed to leave! One thing missing from the kitchen was a spatula for frying eggs/omelettes etc., so I bought one........ forgot about it because we scrambled instead, and then I found it in my coolbag when I got home lol, I meant to leave it!!

My friends nicknamed me Dumbo because I had the large bedroom upstairs and it was a bit noisy for the person underneath, just creaky floors nothing major, but all tiny things........ we really enjoyed it, weather wasn't great, but we had a lovely time, beach was fabulous and the beach bar staff and food were fantastic....... we went to Rojanas in Padstow to celebrate my birthday while we were there and to be honest as nice as the staff were and the food was lovely, the Beach Bar trumped it easily!

One thing to warn people about the taxis, is that they don't work late, as in not after 2230hrs, so you could get caught out if you're over in Padstow and haven't organised one!
Genuinely I would highly recommend your houses, I travel overseas a lot and it was so lovely to be here on holiday. The drive can be rubbish, especially when you don't actually want to go home! But completely loved it, thank you
06/27/2015RoseveanRosevean was lovely but the showers upstairs were poor, one blocked and the shower cradles were ineffective, the trampoline was out of action - needs re-springing or tightening, outside drain was blocked and the barbecue grill was caked and needed a thorough clean before use - but apart from that the property was fabulous, the late check in was also too late in the day, fortunately the weather was wonderful which made it more bearable but we were all exhausted as we had travelled in the early hours due to traffic and young ones, however next year will be booking 2/52 later about 16/7/16 and will be looking for a property with 6 bedrooms so would appreciate any input / recommendations, but otherwise many thanks - look forward to visiting Constantine Bay again nxt year,
06/27/2015The RidingsThank you for the tea and the cake - a lovely thought and much appreciated
06/28/2015Little TowanWe did have a lovely time, the house was lovely and the kitchen was very well equipped, our only criticism was that, while the cake that was left for us was delicious, we would have liked to have had some toilet roll left in the house as well.
06/28/2015The PeakIf possible to lower the hedge so there is more of a view out to the sea from the garden.! Amazing week thank you
06/28/2015Treyarnon PointWe absolutely loved Treyarnon Point!
Please can you put us down for the same week next year, I believe starting on July 1st 2016?
It is a truly wonderful location.
06/29/2015Pensile House CottageEverything at the cottage was just great. Really great. We would like to move there. We won't be able to make it back to the UK next year, unfortunately.
We did sometimes have trouble getting hot water in the shower, we were unsure about the string and it's role in our shower. Perhaps that's a European thing? We would pull it, but sometimes even when I did pull it, my shower was quite cold.

Thank you so much for everything. We will recommend Raintree to all of our friends.
06/30/2015Trevethan HouseWe are definitely keen to book Trevethan House again next year for either 1 or 2 weeks. Can you let me know if you have any availability in July 2016 please?
07/01/2015South CornerWe had a great week, lovely house, great views, surprisingly good weather
07/01/2015ThalassaThank you for a lovely week which flew by in spite of the weather, no breakages to report all vacummed and clean as requested thanks for cake!We really enjoyed the house, and all its quirky bits, pictures and nick-nacks. The only thing I felt was a bit of a health and safety issue was that the kitchen tap wasn’t a mixer. This meant that rinsing off soapy dishes had to be either under very hot water or under the cold tap, which made the washing up water cold. It’s only a small thing, and I agree wouldn’t ‘fit in’ with the rest of the kitchen, but it would be an improvement.(Also, a larger fridge-freezer would have been helpful, although I can see there’s not much space!) Otherwise everything was great. We really appreciated the starter cake on arrival – just what we needed after a long drive. The shower was very efficient, and it was good to have access to cleaning materials, so we could keep things tidy as we went along. I used the single bike, (there was a combination lock, but no record of the number) and we also played a lot of Scrabble! The boys enjoyed the golf, and generally we had a very happy and chilled week.
07/02/2015WindrushesWe have had yet another wonderful stay at Windrushes
07/03/2015Santa MarinaThe coffee maching needs a special descaling tablet as the warning button keeps coming on!!!!
07/03/2015WispaThere are a few things that need fixing, one dining chair has a lot of give and seems about to break. Dishwasher - wheels off lower tray and cutlery basket broken so things fall through. Handle off french windows in kitchen.
07/04/2015Constantine Bay CottageVery comfortable cottage in a fantastic location.
07/04/2015EasterleighWe had another lovely week at Easterleigh which is a super house. Unfortunately I don't think we'll be able to go again next year but thank you for offering to give us priority booking.
Re. the house. We did notice that it was very short of glasses - there were only about 6 wine glasses and 2 champagne glasses. If you had a full house there (up to 12 people) there wouldn't be enough crockery either. Plenty of cutlery though.
07/05/2015Cape CodA wonderful marine residence, will reply to email when I have more time, a great holiday was had by all.Difficult to fault the house it worked very well for us.Just a minor point—the bbq never gets hot because there is no air under the coals,it needs a separate platform for these.It looks impressive but does not really work.The surface outside the front door is dangerous when wet i.e. very slippery.Christine had a nasty fall luckily no serious injury.
07/07/2015Aquataine AnnexeFirstly can I say how lovely it was to find a cake and milk and tea bags. Thank you!
We loved the light airy feel of Aquataine Annexe and with the sea view and the view of the fields at the back too. It was really a lovely place to stay and very well equipped. The bedding was lovely as were the towels - it was a great place to stay for two people and didn't even feel too squashed when there was four of us over the weekend! The upstairs was such a lovely space - we were really sad to leave and would be very happy to return again. Another bonus was having the changeover day on a Tuesday - this made travelling to and from Oxfordshire a pleasant experience rather than an ordeal of traffic jams!!

As I know that it had just been furnished there were only a couple of things that would have been good to have: a tray would have been really handy, as would a washing basket (and washing line - for wet suits - with pegs too) and I am sure that the details stated a dvd player but that didn't bother us. I did look longingly at the sun loungers that were in use in the main house and on the couple of sunny days we had I would have happily sat either out the front or out the back on a lounger!
We loved it so much that we looked for another week again this year but it is fully booked already! If, however, you get a cancellation for another week between now and the end of August we would be very interested.
I would have happily have written in a visitors book but there wasn't one that I could find in the propertFinally I really liked the table mats that were a blue stripey design - do you happen to know where they came from?
We have previously stayed at the Ocean Blue Resort in Treyarnon, but we liked Aquataine Annexe so much we will be looking to stay here again.

Many thanks for a great holiday
07/07/2015Aquataine LodgeWE had a great time.
07/07/2015FlintstonesWe loved our stay at Flintstones and think it is a really fantastic house. My only complaint is that I think they need to have some additional large white plates. Otherwise it is a really well kitted out kitchen and the bathrooms are excellent.

We would definitely like to reserve it for the same week next year- 7-15th July.
07/07/2015The BuckChina/glasses and the knives at The Buck are all pretty old and not great. Downstairs loo is tricky to flush and shower needs upgrade but we still love The Buck and your great service.

Once again, thank you all
07/07/2015Trevethan HouseAll great except it would be good news to replace the master bed mattress. I don't know when this was last done but a medium mattress would be appreciated.
07/07/2015TrewarrenThanks for this - we had a lovely holiday and I would like to register interest for the same week at Trewarren next year - thank you.
A couple of very small things regarding the house: not all the bedside lamps were working when we arrived. We filled all the recycling bags and boxes in the one week and I noticed they were not going to be emptied for another week. There didn't seem to be a salad dryer.
07/08/2015South CornerLovely, just one thing we couldn't lock garage. Think this message must have been lost in the ether somewhere! But we had a lovely time at South Corner and although the weather wasn t totally brilliant we all really enjoyed it!
07/09/2015PenporWe had a lovely time at Penpor - the house was great very well appointed and comfortable. Very little room for improvement!! The bushes next door were a bit overgrown and encroaching on the lane, so could so with some sorting out. A minor quibble - in all very good.

07/09/2015TorridonWe had a lovely time in Cornwall, could have done with a bit more sun, but our last day at Tregirls was beautiful warm sea and a BBQ. The house is really nice, beautifully put together. I was particularly interested in the table lamps, do you know where they were bought. We have a house in North Devon and similar would be great there. I would like to stake an interest in a week next year, but would prefer the week before our week this year. It is too early to make a definite decision at the moment, but the house is so convenient it would be our first choice. My grandchildren loved the fact that Rocky beach is practically in the garden!
07/10/2015Booby`s Bay CottageAnother wonderful week, only small issue was the broken towel rail in the ensuite shower room which was reported and apparently needs new element, so we had to dry our towels in other bathrooms.
07/10/2015Santa MarinaExcellent,brilliant holiday superb accomodation ?10.00 left behind for breakage,nail varnish on bath towel damaged towel taken away money left for replacement.
07/11/2015Constantine Bay CottageFor me and husband bed was a bit small – we are both VERY tall but otherwise superb! Hence prefer the Aquataine property
07/11/2015Mole EndThanks for everything, great holiday, couldn’t get the DVD to work-flat batterey,couldn’t find replacement.
07/11/2015RoseveanOur only comment would be the hot water tank is not large enough for the whole house to shower/bath on return from the beach, other than that some sharpe knives would be useful!!!Everything was perfect!
Thank you
07/11/2015TrenleyThe cake was most welcome,thank you.
07/11/2015WarnecliffeLightbulb in kitchen over sink needs replacing, downsatirs w/c near front door-inside door knob is loose, fridge is a little frosty, we had a lovely stay overall, house was very comfortable.The house was lovely although there were a few snags :
A microwave would have been useful
A wall clock in the kitchen/dining area would also have been useful although I managed to update the clock on the oven
The downstairs toilet door handle is loose
A lightbulb above the sink had blown
The chest of drawers in the twin room upstairs was difficult to open and close
A cupboard doorknob is missing in the kitchen near the fridge
The fridge is very cold and froze our strawberries!
07/14/2015FlintstonesWe had a great week and would like to come back to Flintstone and if two weeks were available we would be very interested. We would consider other property but only ones closer to the beach. Same date would suit us again.
07/15/2015TuriWe had a lovely week staying in Turi last week. The house was just as described and very comfy and had everything you needed for your holiday in it. We also loved Constantine Bay! Also Raintree were really good leading up to the holiday and whilst we were there when we had a problem with the Wifi. Thank you very much
07/16/2015PenporWe loved Penpor and would be really keen to stay there again and would love a week in the summer holidays we just need to confirm school dates
07/17/2015CobsThe mattress protectors are hot making and slide about - a minor problem that we have noticed both years - otherwise all great
07/17/2015High TidesChickens next door woke us up every morning at daybreak. No mirror in one of the en-suites, poor parking for 3 cars-thank you for cake and tea.
07/18/2015SailawayVery impressed with house and raintree service
07/19/2015Little TowanLovely house and holiday,please note that the right side of the toaster keeps catching!!!
07/21/2015Trevethan HouseWe liked the house and the garden and especially the large spacious rooms. It was well furnished and the beds comfortable. The service was very efficient. We found the very busy road rather daunting going to and from the beach with young children. Also, it was cold - would have been nice to have some form of heating or logs for the fire. The message on the green bins about the day of recycling collection was different from that on the instructions in the house folder. We took the recycling rubbish from the previous week to Padstow.
07/23/2015CurlewsGreat house thanks,slight leak from washing machine, basketball hoop just held on by 1 screw, disappointed basketballers. The cord for the main shower room has snapped also.
07/23/2015TregarneHad a great 2 weeks. It was our fifth year in Trevone and first to Tregarne. Loved house and mid holiday mini clean was a bonus. Loved the cake on arrival, just what we needed after the journey. House is in an excellent position. The only minor recommendation that would be beneficial on a return trip is soap dishes in the shower! My mum, who was with us, is 74 and bending over for anything is not easy! Would also have been good to have a DVD player in lounge, as TV upstairs a bit small, and adults definitely couldn't sit up their to watch!
Found the service at Raintree brilliant and as per below email please reserve us the same two weeks for next year as we will definitely return.
07/23/2015WestwindsWe had a great time in Westwinds - we did have an email discussi on at the start of the holiday regarding a smell in the house - just before leaving we discovered that it is infact the vacuum cleaner which causes the smell - it is probably worth checking or replacing the bag because despite the house being very well cleaned the smell left is not desirable. Hope this feedback is useful and as mentioned above we would be more than happy to return to Westwinds!
07/24/2015Lamorna CottageLamorna Cottage was perfect for our family, no complaints only compliments.
07/24/2015White WallsFantastic stay at White Walls what a beautiful house!!!!!!
07/25/2015Constantine Bay CottageYour service as always was wonderful and we sing your praises to all we know.
On this occasion, the house needed a deeper clean. Lots of animal hair behind curtains, under sofas. As small animals are allowed would expect some but not this much. The rug could also have done with a clean.

However, nothing to put us off.
07/25/2015EasterleighWe could have done with hooks on some of the bedroom doors.
We had a very happy week at Easterleigh,( apart from the first few days of challenging windy weather). The lovely welcome of tea and home made cake, especially after our long journey was much appreciated by everyone...thank you ! Also, the fresh home produced breakfast and vegetable hamper where very well received.
The house was left in good order and everywhere spotlessly clean, which is a big bonus. The patio, with table tennis and small outside foot ball pitch where a great success.
07/25/2015Parc VeanVery happy to have had a mid-stay clean - never had one before with other holiday companies. Also very happy with the service given to provide a brand new tv for the upstairs bedroom.
07/25/2015SailawayAs always had a lovely time in Sailaway and love to go back so I will fill out the form you sent us when back in the UK.
07/26/2015Cape CodWe had a wonderful week and love the house.
I am afraid we broke a wine glass and a dessert glass. The loo roll holders in the downstairs shower room and upstairs ensuite are both loose. I hope we put enough in the telephone box. I am afraid I Forgot to check before I left. Already looking forward to next year!
07/26/2015Treyarnon PointAs always, the house was wonderful. The water was fantastically hot, and catered for showers for everyone after surfing. We loved the new sofas too. The cleaners were delightful, and Philip was helpful as ever. No improvements needed in any way.
07/28/2015LanhydrockLoved our stay- we will be back - This is the second time of staying, love the location, love the house, suits us perfectly.
07/28/2015Trevethan HouseAs always everything was great and we all had a wonderful time.
Thank you especially for managing to sort out the Wi-Fi for us.
Until next year.
07/28/2015TrewarrenHello-we loved our stay as usual but this year there were lots of missing or broken lamps in the bedrooms and the shower door was broken.
07/29/2015CurlewsThanks for a lovely stay. See reply below, we would like to register our interest to have Curlews again, it is a great house and suited our needs perfectly, but it is difficult to tell at the moment who can commit to coming, but we would still like to be kept in mind, we had such a great time, and love Constantine, my husband had his 60th birthday down there so lots of fun, eating, drinking and laughing! we were sad to leave!



07/30/2015TrenevekThanks for a wonderful week!
07/30/2015WindrushesThe preparation for our stay was great, Windrushes with its position, facilities, linen etc are just lovely. The cake was scrummy.We had a really good holiday. We much appreciated the WiFi as non of our phones worked which made it even more peaceful down in Cornwall!!!
The weather, all but for 1 day, allowed us out and about to the beach and outdoors elsewhere.
We thought Windrushes a wonderful holiday home and the information file was appreciated. We hope the £5 phone cover was adequate.
The facilities are great. The utility room was bordering on the miraculous in dealing with young children and dogs. The toy/tool box was much appreciated.
Only suggestion would be a mop/squeezy bucket to reduce free water on the floor after swim and showers.
The rooms worked well for our families.
The cooking/eating/crockery//BBQ equipment is very generous.
We loved the welcome note,tea tray and the CAKE! We hope your cake chef has a happy retirement, and her successor has been well trained!!! We really enjoyed the warm welcome on black board and tea tray!
Rosie’s ice cream van was much apprecitated also.
Thank you so much for the efficient e-mails and manor of dealing with us.
One little sadness is a lost I phone 5 in a blue case. Our daughter definitely lost it at the house on Wednesday – it could have been the mischievious two year old but we cant’t find it anywhere! We left a note for the next guests and would appreciate it if you could let us know if and when it is found.

With kind regards and grateful thanks.
07/31/2015Booby`s Bay CottageAs ever we had a very happy holiday,
07/31/2015CheyneyOnce more we all really enjoyed staying in Cheyney, the location and size of the house work for us. However we did think that it was looking a little tired this year, for example the oven was in the same awful state as last year and so needs to be changed - it has no seal left and the temperature gauge is very hit and miss. Also the outside hose needs a new valve to work properly. The central part of the house had lots of cobwebs up high, appreciate a ladder would be needed but still should have been done. The hot water supply seemed to struggle at times, due to the numbers showering I assume, but would be good to know you could always rely on a hot shower! Also a few more every day supplies would have been appreciated - e.g. only one dishwasher tablet and no rinse aid or salt provided - little things I know, but slightly annoying.
07/31/2015CobsCobs was great.. the bucket that the mop came with had a hole in it and that was quite annoying, as the floor was white in kitchen so needed cleaning a lot.. so bucket for mop needs replacing.
07/31/2015Lamorna CottageLamorna is a fabulous house in a great position – definitely one of the best properties we have ever stayed in. The only (very small) negative feedback would be that the garden could be improved – some sun-loungers and or decking perhaps? Anyway, as I say, a very tiny criticism, as we absolutely loved the house and location.
07/31/2015Santa MarinaWe had an amazing holiday in Santa Marina
07/31/2015TrenouthHi, We had a wonderful week in Trenouth, what an amazing house. We have just realised that we forgot to write in the visitors book, could we either e-mail you what we would like written in there so you can put it in the book or we can send a hand written note that can be slipped in the book. We really would like something put in there for the owners and subsequent visitors.
08/01/2015Carnavis CottageLovely house, but we have really enjoyed being closer to the sea in the past, with view and easier for kids with beach. Really good house and garden, and great to be able to use the dog walking field also.
08/01/2015SailawayWe had yet another fab time in Sailaway; it feels like our home for the week. Thanks once again to Raintree, you offer a very professional service. The information in the folder was really useful and the caretaker arrived within a couple of hours to sort the fridge out. Thank you.

We would love to take the house again for the same week, I hope I have filled the form correctly!
08/01/2015WarnecliffeDownstairs bed very creaky waking us up every time one of us turned over,not very comfy either. Couldn’t turn on downlighters above sofa, couldn’t open front door, why are there so many family photos everywhere , but fab holiday-thanks.
08/02/2015Cape CodWe all really enjoyed our stay, owner super friendly and great to chat too, great outdoor facilities wetsuit rinse and shower really helpful,BBQ was brilliant, TV, Jacuzzi bath, sky,outdoor dining, nearness to the beach, surfboard borrow were all big plus's. There are marks on the carpet that were there when we came-It was not our party! All of our party enjoyed our week in Cape Cod. It met our requirements very well and everyone was keen to book the same week at Cape Cod for next year. The only minor problem was the late checking in time (5:00 pm). Our party includes 5 children. We have to travel a considerable distance (from Lancashire and Cheshire). Because of the traffic volumes at peak holiday season we have to travel overnight/early hours and consequently arrive at Constantine quite early. I know that early August must be a busy time for your staff and accept that there is a lot of work to do on changeover days, however, getting access to Cape Cod somewhat earlier would help considerably with the issues of getting tired children sorted out, unpacking, doing the initial supermarket run etc.
08/02/2015Tresillian CottageYes please I would like to register my interest in coming again to Tresillian next year for the same week.
As to feedback, we all love the house and its position. We like the fact that it is not too smart as with young children we do not want smart carpets etc.
However we have stayed there 3 or 4 times and I think it does need upgrading as we do pay a lot for it. In particular the easy chairs in the sitting room are really uncomfortable, particularly for those of us grandparents who are getting on a bit. Also the kitchen units have seen better days.
Something that would not cost any money is that there needs to be a cull of the glasses and mugs as we don't use even half of them. That would free up space to store food. Currently there is nowhere.
However we all love it and look forward to next year.
08/06/2015MerrymorWe loved our week at Merrymor and much as we’d like to return next summer, we are unable to commit at present. Hopefully we shall return one day though.
08/06/2015MorvorenThis was by far the best holiday house we have ever stayed in. A very high standard of house, everything we needed was available and the house was very clean on arrival. Loved the welcoming tea and cake. Wonderful views, particularly from the balcony.
08/06/2015VeilsfieldThanks for another wonderful week.
08/07/2015Booby`s Bay CottageAs I said on the phone we had a lovely stay at Boobys with all the family. My only angst is that those dining chairs are way to big for the room and it means you cant fit 11 around the table comfortably! A minor matter.
08/07/2015High TidesHigh Tides lovely house,spotlessly clean and comfortable-would be perfect if twin room could also be made up as double and garden had couple of huge beanbags/sunloungers.
Back wooden fence facing fields has collapsed so not fully enclosed for dogs.
We had a fantastic time there.
08/07/2015Santa MarinaA lovely house with great views, but please alter your house details as there is no loo in the main bathroom as stated. Also the fridge is really a large fridge with a freezer compartment - we had to squeeze our shopping in.
08/07/2015TrenouthJust wanted you all to know what an amazing week at Trenouth we had earlier this month. Our group included 8 children from 6 to 15 and all were equally entertained on the local beaches. We were also lucky to be there on the night of the shooting stars,none of us will forget it. Back home our friends had cloud cover ! The Pop Festival too was a hit with the eldest children ! I think mention of the excellent life guards on your web site would be valuable,as an anxious granny I welcomed their presence not only for the safety of my grand children but also their Dads !
08/07/2015WispaHi- it was all great, thanks. My one comment is that I felt a bit overwhelmed by all the requests to do stuff on Twitter and Facebook. I don't use either regularly and as I was working very hard right up until the moment we left for the holiday it was a tiny bit irritating.But its a small point and I realise other customers may love it, so I really don't mind.The house was beautifully clean, there were lots of unexpected extra benefits, and the children loved the reclining chairs.......
08/08/2015Carnavis CottageMany thanks, we had a great time, fantastic location and the house was excellent. We are in the process of looking at options for next summer, and you are still top of the list.
08/08/2015South CornerThe service has been outstanding. The girls busily cleaning were lovely. The Gardener even helped jump start the car! The only bad fault was the shower in the far bedroom - the lack of a door was not ideal to stop a wet floor ! Loved our few days and would love to have a whole week. If the owners wanted to let an August week ....?!
08/09/2015Little TowanLovely holiday in a great house,nice touch to have a cake waiting for us we really enjoyed it, a very well equipped house, coffee machine not working.
08/09/2015PendoricWE LOVED THE NEW PENDORIC - thank you!!!
08/13/2015Merrymorawesome holiday - see you next year (again). Full length mirror would be fab!
08/13/2015MorvorenIt was great to be back with Raintree this year, the house was so clean, linen and towels perfect. The cake was as always very popular!
A couple of things, a warning about the building site in front of the house would have been good. There was nothing that could have been done, but it wasn't great having drilling every day before 8am. The location of Morvoren is great, but we'd prefer a house that has it's kitchen/living area facing the view. With a family and wet weather, there's a lot of time spent in the kitchen! Separately, we hadn't been told that the fridge/freezer had been replaced with a SMEG fridge, so when Tesco delivered on our arrival we had to return a number of items as there was no proper freezer to put food in.
08/13/2015WindrushesWE LOVED THE HOUSE AND THE LOCATION. The wet room / shower room was an excellent space to keep wetsuits and shower when coming in off the beach. THE 2 things I would change about the house would be to have no carpet in the sitting room/ dining room - the floor boards in the hallway were very nice and would work well throughout the living area downstairs with a couple of rugs. I would also at some point have French doors opening out from the dining room into the garden. Having said that, we loved the house as it was and are wanting to come back next year!
08/14/2015Commons Meadow HouseAs always we love staying at CMH - just a couple of things - the dishwasher has not performed well for the last 2 years and it is not well designed in terms of taking glasses etc. Also, with a house sleeping so many it would make it better if there was a shower and loo attached to the master bedroom. Otherwise it is perfect for us and the children.
08/14/2015Santa MarinaHouse was generally great, but could have done with a bit of a freshen up - grouting in large shower needed re-doing. Also could do with a much larger fridge/freezer.
08/14/2015St PetrocWe loved our stay however....
The window in the master bedroom needs to be fixed as it lets in water making the cushions wet and you can’t have it open properly.
I think the fridge freezer is on its last legs. You have to set the dial to 8/9 to achieve a cold enough temperature to be safe (I checked with a fridge thermometer!).
08/14/2015White Walls A bunk bed in the twin room (in addition to a single bed) would be great
08/15/2015Parc VeanLovely house but poorly equiped kitchen, the downstairs bathroom catch has stuck open so you have to lock it to keep the door shut. We had a great holiday.
Bad- not enough sitting furniture in upstairs lounge.12 people cannot sit down.
Garden is not secure for dogs or children. There are open steps down to the Annexe drive.
Needs more floor coverings in upstairs bedrooms to stop noise of footsteps disturbing people in
Bedrooms below.
Mirror in master bedroom falls off wall.
Broken coping stone by garden steps up from kitchen door
Bare light bulb in one upstairs bedroom
Not much clothes storage anywhere
Some bath and sink drains clogged and some drain smells
Upstairs balcony not safe for small children. End panels do not reach floor.

Good - kitchen exceptionally well equipped
Good towels and bedding. Plenty to go round and good quality.
Good and sensibly positioned stair gates
Plenty of hot water.
Question - does the Aga cost a lot to run? It is a lovely feature but in hot weather makes the kitchen too hot. Can it be switched off and on again? It seems a shame to pay for energy to heat it and then open the windows to get the heat out.
08/18/2015The BuckWe all enjoyed our second year in The Buck even though there was the odd spot of rain every now and again.
08/19/2015GortherenWe had a great time despite the weather! The accommodation was very good and also very comfortable.
I did send an email on Thursday 20th telling you about some items that were broken on arrival.
Photos of the burnt out saucepan......this was just left in the drawer so we left it there too. The food to the utility had very bad scratches.....looked as if a dog had been shut in there, thought they were not allowed in. The blind in the bunk room was off the wall and the cord not connected so we left it rolled up. Some chips on crockery.
08/19/2015ThalassaOnce again, we loved our stay with raintree in Constantine. Please let us know when we need to book for next year.
08/20/2015South TamariskThe house was excellent - really couldn't have been better equipped for 13 of us and also in an amazing location between two fabulous beaches. The best Cornwall hol we've had yet, despite the 'mixed' weather!
08/20/2015WindrushesWe loved our week at Windrushes - it really is the perfect house and we would love to take it again the same week next year so can we put in a plea now as I am sure you get really booked up from year to year! Thank you and the team for looking after us all so well - we loved the welcome cake - it didn't last long it was so good and we are definitely all several pounds heavier ( and I am many pounds poorer) from all the ice-creams we ate from Rose's caravan! Hope the weather improves for you all over the Bank Holiday.

Many thanks and all good wishes
08/21/2015CheyneyThank you. We had a fantastic time mainly due to your house. I wish you had more elsewhere
Do you know of similar quality large dog friendly houses in Devon or Dorset for next year.
Have been and will continue to recommend Raintree
08/21/2015CobsWe had a wonderful stay in Cobs. A real highlight was being greeted by the home made cake! Two things to note that I mentioned on the piece of paper I left in the house - neither of the tin openers work and the house could benefit from a few extra chopping boards especially plastic ones that can be put in the dishwasher.
What could have made your holiday better this year? Please let us know below. Nothing!
08/21/2015HighviewHi we had a really lovely time at Highview. We arrived after 9pm so the bread, cake and tea went down a treat! A lovely touch. The property was lovely and clean and it was good to have a large area downstairs for Ted the dog to trot around.The only drawback was that he kept getting out as he discovered he could wriggle down the side of the shed in the front garden. Maybe this is something you could look to block off for the future. Otherwise a very happy holiday in a glorious location with stunning views.
08/21/2015Lamorna CottageLovely week at Lamorna, fantastic house. As you know we come and stay in one of your lovely properties when we have a big family celebration, this year it was my mum's 80th.

Not sure when the next one will be but I'm sure we'll use you again in the future.
08/21/2015White Walls First of all thank you for dealing with the clothes left by son and daughter-in-law. We just hope they have enough clothing for Oliver and Sam until your parcel arrives !!

We liked White Walls very much. It was the first time we had holidayed as a family on the North Cornish coast, the previous 2 years we have been on the South coast between Looe and Polperro. When the sun shines then Constantine Bay and its environs are perfect, reminding us grandparents of our holidays as children in this area 60 years ago. Mind you, then there were not half so many cars and you could wander down to the beach at Rock and get the ferry across to a quiet Padstow. This year I couldn’t even get into the car-park to walk down into the town !
White Walls was excellent. Fully equipped with everything one could want for adults and children alike. The one or two suggestions from our party designed to be helpful were: it would be good to have shaver/electric toothbrush points in the bathrooms: there were not enough of the small plastic tumblers when the children were drinking squash and the adults gin and tonics !!: the bolt in the downstairs loo is coming adrift. Sadly we couldn’t let Basie, the black lab, wander about the garden as he has a penchant for hoovering up apples which then give him a gippy tummy. However his loss was the children’s gain as they used them as grenades when attacking or defending the Wendy house.
Considering the forecast at the beginning of our stay which was dire, we did manage three days of fairly decent weather and two evening barbecues.
Next year it is going to be all change as two of our children and their children are off to a villa in France for a week or so in August. As grandparents this could save us some money, but should we need a smaller house we will be in touch. We did spot a lovely house right on the cliff overlooking Constantine Bay called Constantine Cottage but assume this is a private house and not available for renting ?

Kindest regards,

08/22/2015SeascapeEverything wonderful as usual. We hope to come again next year.
08/23/2015Cape CodA lovely stay, thank you.
08/23/2015PendoricHouse has been great and the raintree team really lovely.
08/26/2015GortherenWe were delighted with Gortheren and have indeed suggested to a few friends to have a look at your website. I personally would have liked to be able to use the internet and felt that another time I would choose a location where it could be provided
08/26/2015ThalassaWe have had a wonderful week in Thalassa – and there was actually some sun in Trevose! Very lucky!
Just to mention a couple of things. You probably know this already, but the blue wall in the bathroom already had a small hole in it when we arrived, and the top window in the double bed bedroom was already broken. It does need to be mended as it’s impossible to open it.
Otherwise, everything else all right.
08/27/2015MerrymorWe loved the house. The staff were faultless. Sarah & Debbie were so helpful.
The only thing I would fault is the plumbing. It really should be updated before anything drastic happens. I also showered twice in cold water because there wasn't any warm water.
Other than that it was a great experience. Feels like home away from home.
08/27/2015TregarneWe all had a great time.
08/27/2015WindrushesWe love the location but were a little disappointed that none of the promised refurbs to the property had been done. The showers and downstairs loo still smell damp; there still isn't a proper broom for the property. We do love going there but think the loos/showers need to be looked at.
08/28/2015Booby`s Bay CottageIt would have been good to have a warm room or similar to get the wetsuits dry, the outside court yard didn't work at all well. So my main point is there isn't enough space to hang wet clothes that can't go in the dryer. Maybe one of the outside sheds?
08/28/2015High TidesThanks Sarah and all at Raintree. We had an amazing time at High Tides - it was really beautiful and relaxing. Trevone beach was awesome and the weather was pretty good too! We did several trips into Padstow and ate at the Seafood Restaurant which we loved. We went to St Ives and that was amazing too.
The house was really well cared for and we felt welcome and at home there. The cake on arrival was superb!
Our initial problems with the washing machine were sorted straight away.
This was a highlight of our stay in England by far. We did not want to leave. In fact we wanted to forgo Paris to stay in Cornwall (true - we tried to cancel our booking but couldn't!)
08/28/2015Lamorna CottageAn outstanding cottage, fantastically organised and so well equipped. We have had a wonderful holiday and hope to return again soon. Many thanks, can't fault it 10/10!!!
08/28/2015St PetrocGreat stay as always!
08/29/2015BosporthennisSuch a clean and bright house - we walked everywhere and this was so easy to come back to every day. Thanks.
08/29/2015The RidingsWe won’t need to be reserving for next year as we are planning a different holiday.
The house was fantastic and I would certainly recommend Raintree House Holidays.
Excellent kitchen/dining facilities
Excellent sitting room, great to have so many jigsaws and games
Great to have Wi-fi
Great to have so much hot water for showers and outside shower after beach
Lovely bed linen and towels
Things that could be done:
Curtains in back twin bedroom need washing or new ones. My daughter needed her inhaler due to the smell.
More mesh/wire at bottom of front gate for smaller dogs, maybe a small run, the length of the gate could be stored in the garage to attach if needed.
Although the house was excellent, we would prefer to have a holiday home overlooking the sea or by the sea so that we would not need to get all the gear in and out of the car all the time etc. There is a spacious house at Treyarnon for 10 overlooking the beach with a games room in the attic space which I am sure would be perfect , except for the price in the summer holidays, my daughter is a teacher, therefore we have to go at the height of the season.
Please thank the owners of Curlews for renting out their lovely holiday home, it was much appreciated. Also thank the cleaners for preparing the house for our arrival.
08/30/2015Little Towan Place was lovely & location really good
>Cake, tea, milk on arrival was a top touch
> The fact there was stuff to get going was great eg dishwasher tabs, bin
bags, toilet roll, bbq coals etc etc. We made sure we left same which was
> Place was spotless
> Nice to have soaps etc provided

> Phone reception was non-existent anywhere in St Merryn - maybe plug in a
sure-signal to the broadband would be good - but landline was handy
> Some simple instructions for the heating would be good - it was cold that

Generally an 8/10 experience & we will use you again
09/01/2015Aquataine AnnexeWe had an excellent week and very much enjoyed the whole ambience of the annexe,the immediate and wider area and of course the weather. We were fortunate.
Virtually everything was first class but there were just one or two minor points I would like to mention.
First we never actually received a delivery of logs so could you please ask the supplier to return the cost we paid to them
As well as the very helpful household contents you kindly provided it would have been very useful if that could have included one or two tablets for the dishwasher and a toilet roll in the upstairs toilet.
The only other tiny point was that I seemed to be for ever washing cutlery and perhaps 4 knives is a bit sparse even for just 2 people.
However I don't want you to think that any of the above points meant that we did any other than regard the whole holiday as excellent.
Thank you for your attention and support
Judy Hooton
09/01/2015FlintstonesThanks for a lovely stay we'd love to come again.
09/02/2015BeachcombersGreat house - great location!
09/02/2015GortherenAmazing holiday, loved the house, brilliant facilities and the tea and cake on arrival was greatly appreicated!Just to say that we had the most wonderful holiday at Gortheren and hope to return next year!

We left in such a hurry that I didnt write in the visitors book! Is there somewhere on the webiste that I can leave a review?
Also I ran out of time to fill in the breakages form as I broke a wine glass. Apologies for this but would it be possible to take the cost out of our deposit?

Thanks again for a brilliant holiday experience!
09/02/2015TuriWe had a lovely time but won't be able to go to Turi the same week next year.
Kind regards
09/03/2015South TamariskThankyou for such a wonderful holiday.. A fantastic time was had by all.
One of our family members had recently been diagnosed with cancer and it gave us all a chance to come to terms with that fact and feel very positive in such a beautiful location.
We have been coming to Cornwall for many years, myself over fifty years and I think South Tamarisk has been the best accommodation we have ever experienced together.
The owner has paid great attention to detail and it is definitely a great achievement. The cleaning staff equally do a sterling job leaving the house immaculately clean especially the bathrooms.

Needless to say, we would love to return at the same time next year and if possible for two weeks. Please let me know if that is at all possible.
09/04/2015CobsWe would like to reserve the same two weeks next year, our preference would be to stay at Moroven if possible but if not Cobs is fine with us too. If it were possible we would be happy to consider a week at both if a 2 weeks window isn't available.
09/04/2015Commons Meadow HouseMrs MacCullum called to let us know that the house was just perfect and that they all had a marvellous time at CMH. The house was very well set up and they will be in touch again to book.
09/04/2015RidgegroveWe had a fabulous holiday at Ridgegrove, the cake and Tea were very welcome after a long journey.

The house was beautiful, bedrooms were so comfortable, the space was just right for our family when anyone needed a quiet hour or so! Everything was to a high standard, wonderful, our grandson absolutely loved the " House Tree"! Lots of relaxing & eating wonderful food was had by all, just one comment that was not your fault but we presume the people before us could not be bothered to clean up after the dog, not very nice, my husband cleared it all up as soon as we arrived.Once again thank you all at Raintree
09/05/2015TrenleyHad a wonderful holiday, loved the views and easy access to the beach. Tennis court was very popular. Looking forward to next year.
09/06/2015Cape CodMany thanks for yet another lovely week!
09/06/2015Little TowanI also just wanted to say what a lovely surprise the Victoria sandwhich was on our arrival at little Towan , a lovely touch enjoyed by all
09/06/2015PendoricWe had a really great holiday at Pendoric and do have a few suggestions rather than comments. However, firstly we’d like to say thank you for the welcome gift on arrival and the bottle of wine both of which were much appreciated – a nice touch and really made us feel welcome. The Victoria Sponge was especially delicious. You are most definitely the best holiday company we’ve come across in the years we’ve been renting holiday cottages and wish there were more like you. Your knowledge of the properties and willingness to take time to find us the right property for us made a real difference and was very much appreciated.
On a practical note – the loo in the downstairs ensuite shower room does need some attention as the flush was a little temperamental and might need a plumber.
The comments we give may be things that the owners already have in mind to do but haven’t yet got round to completing. We felt that if they’re going to charge significantly more next year then we would make the following suggestions to enhance the experience of people staying at Pendoric:
The 3 windows overlooking the front in the kitchen really do need blinds for privacy on dark evenings – it does feel rather like a gold fish bowl when it’s dark and you have the lights on.
The wonderful lounge upstairs needs some lamps, maybe 2/3 in the room. It would also have been great to watch our DVDs on the fantastic large TV but with no DVD player we sat in the smaller “snug” downstairs. It would be much better if you had a DVD player in both lounges.
Install a WIFI booster upstairs and on that side of the house as the signal is only strong in the kitchen and the downstairs lounge. If you offer WIFI then I would expect it to cover the whole house.
It would also be great if there were a couple more long mirrors, one in the hall especially would be especially useful.
The finish at Pendoric from the work this year was exceptional and we all commented on the attention to detail that we could see had been applied and our suggestions above are purely from our own experience and hope they help.
We won’t be able to return to Pendoric unfortunately as this was on our limit of affordability anyway but I suspect we’ll see what might be possible with some of your smaller properties when we look to return to Cornwall next September. We will definitely be back in touch but please do put us on your mailing list for any short break offers.

Thank you to all at Raintree for making our holiday the best ever – you even managed to ensure we had warm sunny weather !
09/06/2015The PeakThe location and space (inside and out) is superb, the house a little dated but fine - couldn't find a mop when tidying up though, this would be helpful with the dogs but OK this week as mainly dry. Loved the cake on arrival, saw your Nissan Patrol on several occasions around the area so didn't feel ignored but also didn't need you as it all went smoothly. Found 5.30 check in a bit late with two 3.5 yr olds to feed and get to bed but conversely liked the 12 checkout - although was gone by 11!
All in all, yes I would recommend Raintree for the organisation and locations and so thank You very much and here's hoping we can do something next year.
09/06/2015Tresillian CottageStill in a warm haze about our Harlyn holiday.
It was a great week for the four generations- my 93 year old mother had to time to get to know two of her great grandchildren.
The house worked really well for the toddlers. one was in the annex and the other in the little room in the main house. We were lucky with weather and had some calm days followed by good surf. No real daytime rain. We had two lovely walks- one to Padstow and the other round Trevose.

There was a huge amount of useful kitchen stuff - oil, salt, spices etc, but we had brought our own as you never know. Lovely cake on arrival. House very clean. Layout , fridge, freezer all excellent.

The house is very comfortable and although some parts show their age a little- bathroom etc- we don't mind and don't want it too done up. Our bed was very comfy with lovely sheets- towels all very nice. Lots of stuff like surfboards. We told the cleaners about a couple of things:

Shower downstairs in annex flooded so we did not use it after that.
Remote control for Blue -ray seemed not to work even with new batters. Hoover bag needed changing- we had no time when cleaning up to work out how to fit a new bag.
Could not find a table tennis ball and did not think of bringing our own.
09/06/2015Treyarnon PointWe had a great time. Further feedback to follow.
09/08/2015The BuckWould just like to say what a Fantastic Holiday we all had. The Buck was lovely and the view to die for. I loved the fact we could be on the beach in minutes without using the car. I will hopefully return next year but will try to come earlier in the year, need to check college dates ect for my son.
09/09/2015BeachcombersA lovely house close to the beaches. Thank you.
09/10/2015MorvorenNothing really. We have been returning to Morvoren for many years now and the service has always been excellent.
09/10/2015TrenevekWe had a fantastic holiday at Trenevek and would definitely like to return next year.
09/10/2015VeilsfieldWe loved Veilsfield ! It was in the most perfect location for the beach, shopping and Padstow. We thought it was very well equipped and spacious and comfortable for our family of three generations. We would like to thank you for the lovely cake waiting for us on arrival and to actually find ice cubes ready to use !
09/11/2015HighviewEverything about Highview/Raintree was perfect.
09/11/2015White WallsWe had a lovely week in Constantine Bay and White Walls was ideal for our 3-family group. the house lived up to our expectations. The play house and the selection of toys were brilliant for the kids. Beds and bedding were lovely. Enjoyed Sky TV, wine from the builders and the cake! The building work was not a big problem - only intrusion was reversing hooters as deliveries were backed up the lane down the side of the property.
Thanks to Andrew who promptly fixed the lock on the playhouse, replaced the batteries in the remotes, and replaced the kitchen scales.

This is not a complaint, but some feedback on the house for the owners to consider:

1. Rising damp in the downstairs bathroom - repairs already attempted. Also the owner's storage area smelled damp.

2. Only half the blinds in the conservatory stay down when pulled. we had to tie the others to the furniture to keep them closed.

3. The lack of doors in the two en-suites was a problem to the shy members of our party. This put pressure on access to the main bathrooms in the mornings.

4. The wicker settees in the conservatory are on their last legs. One has a hole in the arm which the children posted toys into.

5. The dvd player upstairs was not connected. The collection of dvd's in the house was great, and we did get dvds to play on a lap-top, but a number were scratched and would not play.
09/13/2015Little TowanWe had a great time thanks. Just one or two points that you may be interested in. The furniture below the television downstairs had a door which was completely loose and could have fallen off. There were no champagne flutes (for Prosecco). There were no steak knives, and the knives that were there were not particularly sharp. Also the room we used - the twin - had a problem with flies, although we appreciate that the situation could have a lot to do with it, everyday there seemed to be more of the little b*****s!

On the plus side, the ladies cleaned the house very well and were extremely pleasant. Our grandson appreciated some of the toys in the house. There was plenty of room and facilities, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, thank you.
09/13/2015Treyarnon Pointlovely holiday as always
09/15/2015Aquataine LodgeBeautiful house with amazing views.We have stayed at complex before but this place is stunning.Also a massive thank you to Simon and Anna and all the staff at Raintree 10/10 .Regards Mark and Paula

We had a great time – the house suited our needs perfectly.
It is very well equipped , and the use of the garage for securely storing our bikes was invaluable.
The layout is perfect for a family gathering and we all felt very much at home.

Couple of things you could look at however

· All the door handles were polished round door knobs – difficult to open for children – and even adults with wet hands. Levers would be a better option

· None of the loo roll holders are securely fitted – the loo rolls end up on the floor.
09/17/2015TregarneWe had a great holiday thank you
09/17/2015WestwindsVery well equipped , the bathroom hot water tap downstairs did not work, not that it really mattered to us as we used the upstairs en-suite.
09/18/2015Booby`s Bay CottageA wonderful house and location - as always! Looking forward to next year!
09/18/2015Santa MarinaWe had a great holiday and the location of the house was perfect.
Only problems we had is that the key safe is very hard to use and the first floor shower was very slippery. We got round this by buying two shower mats but I think there should be some in the house. We had three family members over 85 with us
and were very nervous that someone could have had a fall.
That said I can only repeat it was a fab house and none of us wanted to go home.
We will use your company another time but like to move around so we will not be rebooking the same house.
09/18/2015St PetrocWe enjoyed our week and the great views at St Petroc very much.
The cake was lovely, the house comfortable and well kitted out and the service was good - there was a BT fault on the landline, which your staff were very helpful about.
09/19/2015Parc VeanThe accommodation was excellent thanks, and the house very well equipped . Happy to give a longer feedback if required - but overall it exceeded expectations. Indeed in looking at all the houses offered on your website we are very favourably impressed by those you have on offer and the excellent facilities and presentation which are available at most.
09/23/2015ThalassaPerfect place to stay - we had a wonderful week.
09/23/2015TorridonWe had a wonderful stay in Trevone, the house is such a great place to relax and so close to the sea.
We look forward to returning there and hopefully to another of your properties next year, as the quality and cleanliness was excellent.. This is not a complaint,just a suggestion, as was the case last year(and we obviously returned this year so it didn't stop us returning) as we walked up the stairs there was instantly a smell which I think is that of dogs, we opened the windows and blew fresh air through which helps but perhaps a mild airwick/room freshner might help long term if the house is closed up for varying amounts of time. Please don't take this as a complaint the house cleaners left the house immaculate, it is a credit to them and your company.
09/24/2015PenjerrickThank you for your e-mail inviting any comments, good or bad, about our recent time in Penjerrick - the last week in September.
As you know we have booked to go in May and in the first week in September 2016.
1. The cottage was beautifully presented and the lawns nicely mown.
2. Warm thanks to whoever made the welcome Victoria sponge - delightful.
3. We had exceptional weather for the whole week. It's just a pity that there is no lounger or deckchairs to borrow to relax in the garden. The plastic body boards were most welcome. Let's hope they will still be there for next year, thank you.
4. The dining chairs made a horrendous noise when they were moved across the floor. Can you fit domed or felt pads to the chairs' feet?
5. On the last but one day I had to buy a 4-pack of toilet rolls from the nearby shop as both bedrooms were lacking a spare loo roll. At the rental price charged could you consider the convenience of one extra loo roll per bedroom? Please.
6. Too few dish washer tabs! Not enough for one for the last day. The nearby shop could have sold me a large pack of them but we don't use them at home. At your rental price charged could you please consider the convenience of supplying just a few more tabs? {You are generous with the very nice hand washing gels.}
7. There was one very large frying pan in good condition, and two smaller ones that were not fit for purpose.
Again, many thanks for Penjerrick, a gem of a holiday cottage. J. Lewer.
09/24/2015TregarneWe had a great time and would like to register interest for next year (as below), but would have to be the week of 23rd Sep only.
09/25/2015Booby`s Bay CottageHad a fantastic week, thank you. Lovely sheets, bedding, towels etc. Very well equipped house.
09/25/2015CobsWe had a fabulous time and certainly had the best of weather.
Be assured I will reccommend Raintree to as many people as possible. I have been coming to Constantine for the past 30 odd years and know it well. Cobs was comfortable and welcoming and was the icing on the cake.
09/26/2015BosporthennisThe holiday was brilliant - Bosporthennis was lovely and we couldn't have asked for any more. The house was really well equipped and had everything we needed, and the location and the weather just made it the most perfect week. Unfortunately we are tied to school holidays from next year, so we are not planning a holiday at the moment otherwise we would have loved to rebook.
09/26/2015TrenleyThank you for cake and milk. Fantastic holiday, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful house and beach.
09/27/2015The PeakHad a great week at the Peak with absolutely wonderful weather. Great location close to the beach with some great walks. Not been to that part of Cornwall before but hopefully revisit in a couple of years.PS. When we come again it would be nice if you could arrange the same weather.
09/29/2015The BuckDear Sarah and all at Raintree,
How I’d love to return next year! Sadly not possible. However when next the piggy bank is full I’ll be in touch.
The baskets of food and wine were very successful – Padstow Farm Shop is fantastic. Please let them know they’re doing a great job.
If ever The Buck comes up for sale, shoot me an email. Seriously. Along with 2000 other people, I know!
10/01/2015MerrymorAnother great 'Raintree' holiday. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in another comfortable and well equipped house! Will be looking for more opportunistic hols again next year!! Great customer service too!! Thanks so much.
(Only had one problem - the hoover at Merrymor has seen better days I think...we managed but it took us an age to hoover the place on our last day!)
Otherwise perfect!
Thanks again, will definitely be using Raintree again! Maybe Harlyn Bay next year!!
10/01/2015MorvorenWe had a lovely time in your comfortable house.
We were very lucky with weather which was amazing it is so beautiful there.
Many thanks
10/01/2015TregarneWe had a lovely holiday thank you. The house suited our needs very well being spacious and comfortable.
We probably won't visit this time next year, but I would be interested in weekends away so I will keep that in mind.
10/02/2015FlintstonesGreat stay very comfortable, thank you.
10/03/2015Parc VeanWe had a great time thanks. The tea and cake on arrival was a nice thought and the bath goodies. We would love to have known how to work the fire in the lounge. It is a beautiful house.
10/04/2015PendoricJust to let you know we have left Pendoric.
We have had a lovely holiday. Thank you. We hope to be back in the new year depending on the price increase!! Haha
Just one thing... The garden is not secure for dogs especially inquisitive ones ! The hedge on the right as you look from the step has gaps in to next doors garden . Just thought you should know.
Once again thank you for all your help.
10/04/2015Treyarnon PointYou guys at Raintree do a fantastic job, there is nothing we can say other than keep doing what you are doing and thank you! We love Treyarnon Point mainly for the location which is wonderful and while I don't think it will stop us from staying there we have only one comment. Some of the pillows, duvets and mattresses have seen better days and could do with replacing, although we appreciate this is the responsibility of the owner.
10/08/2015PenjerrickGreat stay and Penjerrick is as lovely as ever, thank you!
10/08/2015TregarneLove this house - our new favourite! Our 4th stay with Raintree!
10/08/2015TrenevekWe had a fabulous week, weather, house and company all excellent. Sponge cake was much appreciated by all. The weather made the week, it was more like summer than October!!
10/09/2015Booby`s Bay CottageHi Kate . Thank you for great week in BBC. It was absolutely immaculate on arrival and thanks for all linen changes etc . We broke 2 wine glasses. (One drying it up ) . 1 chair completely disintegrated and we put one other in shed as crosspiece came away and we didn't want a repeat performance . One other chair already taped with duck tape .
10/10/2015SailawayWe had a lovely stay. The location and the house was perfect.

We certainly will contact Raintree House Holidays when we next book a trip to Cornwall.
10/15/2015South TamariskExceptionally well equipped house and an excellent ambience, thank you.
10/16/2015Lamorna CottageLovely Cottage - and especially like the little touches.
10/17/2015TrenleyWe had a wonderful time, house was spic and span on arrival! Raintree really do a super job at making a house welcoming and well provided.
10/21/2015PendoricWe had a fabulous stay and Pendoric was just perfect. We will have to start saving for our return visit!
10/22/2015TregarneExcellent property, everything was great. I must tell you we have been very impressed with your service at Raintree!!! We had a fabulous week in Trevone. And are discussing already our return.
We are looking at the half term dates for the next school year to rebook "Tregarne". I will contact you as soon as our plans are confirmed.
10/23/2015St PetrocWe had a fabulous time in St Petroc and would certainly like to register for next year.
10/24/2015Aquataine LodgeWe all had a wonderful time at Treyarnon Bay.
10/24/2015PenamontEnjoyed our stay very much!
10/24/2015VeilsfieldGreat stay, lovely house, great location. Kids and the dog loved it!
10/26/2015Apartment 5 GreenwavesWe arrived at 3pm yesterday to a beautiful apartment, absolutely thrilled with everything, thank you so much. And thank you for the delicious cake. It went down a treat with the kids (and me!)
We have stayed in Ocean Blue a number of times but in my opinion your property is far superior."
10/30/2015TregarneWe had a truly wonderful break and will definitely stay in Trevone with you again.
11/01/2015PendoricHouse ideal , very clean only problem was the house alarm which ran continually due to work on the electricity supply near by.
The alarm box on the exterior of the house may require a new battery
11/01/2015The BuckThanks for a lovely stay. Very appointed cottage. We could not find spare loo rolls and had to buy some! Thanks for making up the other room, we did not use it in the end.
11/01/2015Treyarnon PointThank you - the house was brilliant! Treyarnon Point was excellent again, the house was wonderful and ideally suited our needs, the house was extremely well prepared as always and a real credit to Raintree House Holidays, the staff who attended mid stay were extremely polite and helpful and we would like to extend our thanks to all involved.
11/13/2015Booby`s Bay CottageWe had a very good break away from it all, despite, but maybe because of the great and mighty wind!
11/13/2015Santa MarinaThank you for the use of this lovely house. This w/end was organised as a surprise 70th birthday for me, so I had no idea where! Trevone was my childhood home for 10 years and I have lots of happy memories of my time here. My sons and family set it up. Wonderful to have all the family and grandchildren here, must come again.
11/20/2015Grove CottageThis was for a special occasion so it likely we will be going away the same week. For feedback we all had a great time. The cottage was ideal for what we wanted. The only thing we found missing was a potato peeler, there is one there now. Eg was as we expected. Requests to you before we went were always dealt with quickly and efficiently. If we decide to do something similar again we wouldn't hesitate in using your company again.
12/04/2015Grove CottageJust a quick e-mail to say thanks for the weekend, the house was perfect and the weather too, if a little windy !!

What a lovely location, we left yesterday afternoon which was the hardest part, a wonderful birthday weekend.
12/18/2015Booby`s Bay CottageWe worry about the carpet in the dinning room which was already worse for ware on our arrival. We attempt to hoover downstairs daily but the hoover has difficulties and only men could use it with the brushes down. Needless to say they were not very keen to do the job!
We would prefer to have coal/logs left outside instead of the entrance hall or outside the shower by the kitchen.
The new curtains are really lovely and having the windows cleaned often was fantastic.
We are very happy with the level and quality of service we receive and could not better it. Everyone is so helpful and nice!
12/19/2015Santa MarinaWe had another fantastic Christmas at Santa Marina, we love the house and surrounding area.
12/20/2015Aquataine LodgeI'm sure we'll book with Raintree House Holidays again!
12/20/2015Parc VeanWe had a very pleasant stay and maybe would like to visit again later in the year but at he moment we don’t have the dates.
12/21/2015Constantine Bay CottageThanks for letting us know about the shredding of our cheque. We're glad that all was left in order. Also to thank the team at Raintree for their great work: from our initial enquiry all the way through to your communication today we have enjoyed excellent service. Please do pass on our comments.
We did appreciate how thoughtfully CBC was set up for our arrival on a cold, windy and dark December late afternoon. The heating was on, a tea tray set (with delicious mince pies too), plus milk and clotted cream in the fridge which were lovely touches. We loved the greenery and holly that had been dotted around the surfaces. The cottage was just as described and very comfortable indeed. We loved the proximity of the beaches and Frank enjoyed new walks, even showing some signs of wanting to swim- a great advance for a little rescue dog who already lives on the coast, albeit in the North West! Padstow on Christmas Eve was really magical.
All these touches ensured that we had a really happy Christmas, getting away from it all, which was the plan.
We will certainly recommend you to our family and friends and you will be our first port of call when we are able to return to beautiful Cornwall.
12/21/2015PenamontWe had a great time in Penamont. Thank you for your help in making it a great Xmas. I am sure we will use you again.
12/22/2015CheyneyThank you for your email. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cheyney and would love to stay again in the future. Thank you for advising me of your priority booking policy. I will discuss Christmas with the family again in the new year.
Thank you once again to all of the team at Raintree for contributing towards a fantastic stay. We really enjoyed ourselves at Cheyney - the house really is a great place to spend Christmas. We have been really impressed, not only by the quality of the service from Raintree but also how great the house was itself... We found it very hard to leave!

12/22/2015Commons Meadow HouseWe had a super holiday and are interested in booking it for next year for the Christmas break. We do have other family members that we need to confirm their intentions with, so will let you know for definite as soon as we can. If you could refund the security deposit in the meantime, I would be extremely grateful.
12/22/2015Grove CottageJust a note to let you know that we enjoyed very much staying in Grove Cottage with our family from 22-29 December 2015. The children enjoyed the Christmas tree very much. We brought Christmas stockings from home so it looked very festive! Unfortunately I, Betty, was sick the entire time we were there. We all did, including me, attend the candle-lit service at the church on Christmas Eve which we all enjoyed. That was the only thing that I did while there. I wanted to write in the guest book too but it didn't seem to work out for me. If we ever decide to come again as a family we certainly would contact Raintree House Holidays again. Thank you!
12/22/2015Thalassa Yes we had a lovely week in Grove Cottage
and if there are as many family members around at the same time again we
will certainly come back to you.
12/22/2015Trevethan HouseVery pleasant stay, the lack of AGA made cooking a little more difficult than anticipated but the help received was very helpful. Beds very comfy. Lovely house and setting.
12/22/2015WispaWe always enjoy staying in WISPA , very comfortable and plenty of room apart from the parking for two cars and vans from the bungalow opposite make parking very difficult.

The kitchen has too many mixer / blender large items that never seem to get used , they need to be taken out and hopefully free up space for food purchased , currently lack of storage ?
The wine glasses are standard catering size and hard to access with the high shelves ,there could be a better variety of glasses ,also a salad spinner would be useful .

The cafeteria doesn’t work needs replacing and the coffee machine by the bread bin never gets used and takes up valuable work top space .

A couple of dining room chairs need to be replaced the backs are weak and the glass place mats are very heavy and awkward to pick up and move .

Compared to High Tides , Wispa looks tired and lacking colour ?

Overall still love the house
12/23/2015The PeakWe loved the house - it was perfect!
The only thing missing was a door mat by the front door - quite difficult to keep mud from getting inside!
12/23/2015TrewarrenHouse was great for a mixed age group, plenty of space to spread out! Would be great if the hedge could be trimmed to get some view from the lounge - even just a glimpse of the sea would be worth it!
12/23/2015WarnecliffeWe stayed in the main house, it is beautiful, clean, spacious, Thank you.
12/27/2015PenjerrickThank you for a lovely stay, a warm, very comfortable, well equipped cottage.
12/28/2015Lamorna CottageWe really enjoyed our stay at Lamorna Cottage, it’s a great house.
12/28/2015The BuckBathroom could do with an update, OK for a few people but would struggle with larger group. Otherwise we had a wonderful time.
12/28/2015White WallsFabulous week in White walls despite the awful weather. Many thanks.
12/29/2015Aquataine AnnexeThe Aquataine Annexe is lovely, however, a few more bits in the kitchen would be quite helpful eg champagne flutes (especially for New Year break J), scissors, soup spoons, citrus squeezer, tea light holders, tin foil and cling film.
12/30/2015Grove CottageThanks so much - we had such a great time...we'll definitely be back!
