yes its good we stop May and September every year, the leisure centre got it all wrong on the Thursday 9 th May . They have a water aerobics for local people "that was the first this year inside guest and owner time 11.00 am". We and some other people could not get into the pool to swim, the pool manager did not know when they would finish and there was no communication to advise that the thing was going to take place. Apparently this activity usually occurs in the evening after guest hours which is fine. If this is going to be an on going event You should say so in your documents because it is a decision maker when deciding to book a holiday.
Hi Tony, I'm so sorry you experienced problems with the Leisure Centre opening times. Unfortunately, the pool is managed by the Estate itself, so it's not something we have control over, but I have contacted them, asking for notification of this kind of closure.Hope that'll help for next time you visit, Best wishes, Sara

I put the standard of equipment as disappointing as the cooking hob is so old fashioned and very slow to cook on
Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I'm so sorry you were disappointed with the hob. 67 Lower Maen Cottage is more of a traditional, homely apartment, than a new, contemporary property, but I will discuss the oven with the owner and see what we can do to improve things for next time. Best wishes, Sara

2nd June 2018 - Enjoyed the views of the trees and sea from our house. Indoor heated pool was great for the toddler and baby and comfortable for spectators. Short walk to beautiful sandy beach and excellent restaurant.
15th July 2018 - Lovely place to stay with views of the sea as promised. Very well equipped , we had everything we could need. Beds very comfortable, towels a bonus, plenty big enough and fluffy! Little touches like hand wash, washing up liquid and the goodie bag with milk tea coffee and biscuits really appreciated. However , one small point I feel I must make, we would have appreciated being told , along with all the other useful information we received prior to our journey, which car parking area to use as we spent ages walking round looking for the parking area for lower maen cottages only to discover there is no designated area for lower maen cottages . we parked in the ridges car park and hoped for the best . It was also a bit of a walk from the car to the house, which wasn't really a problem but would have been useful to know especially for any guests with mobility problems or pushchairs since there were 4or 5 steps to negotiate. Worth noting that the hill down to the beach is very steep. We used the car a couple of times then found a short cut via steps halfway up the hill which was very useful . None of this would deter us from staying again though , we had a really great time .
Hi Kathleen We are glad you had a good holiday at Maenporth and thanks you for your comments which are much appreciated. After you called into the office and mentioned the parking issues, Sara amended the information we send to guests to make them more aware of the parking so thank you for letting us know.
