Why sue thomas chose Porth
Jasmine Cottage is in a wonderful location to explore all the nearby attractions. Just over a mile from Newquay. Jamie Oliver's 'Fifteen' restaurant is only a 15 minute drive. Padstow, Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are within a short drive. Some of the best surfing beaches on the north coast - Fistral, Watergate and Mawgan Porth are all within a 10 minutes drive. Our nearest beaches - Porth, Lusty Glaze and Whipsiderry are all within walking distance. Our local pub is 50 yds away and welcomes dogs!

Jasmine is ideal for those who love surfing! There is easy access along the side of our cottage for dogs and surfboards and a surfboard rack in the garden.

If I could live in Newquay this is where I would like to live. The cottage is beautiful, clean and the patio area is perfect. When we came back to the cottage after outings even my two small dogs couldn't stop wagging their tails when we opened the cottage door. The location couldn't be better. It is in a lovely village but 10 minutes walk along the fields you come out at Porth Beach. Perfect walk with your dogs. You can see the local pub "the Farmers Arms"
from your front door. A beautiful church is the view from the cottage. The chimes were a little annoying for the first day but you actually get used to them and now I am home I miss them. A lot of thought has gone into the cottage and there are loads of pretty ornaments.
The lady next door was very helpful and pleasant. McDonalds, Lidl, Morrisons are about 8 minutes away on a pretty industrial area. There is a small co-op about 10 minutes walk away. The weather wasn't too good but to be honest it didn't really matter. Porth Beach not far away by car and if you continue driving there are some amazing beaches. Really lucky to find this place. The owner Sue was pleasant to deal with.
Many thanks for your lovely and informative review, and your kind comments. It's always good to have feedback which will help other guests as well. So pleased you and your dogs enjoyed your holiday at Jasmine Cottage. It is, indeed, a lovely part of Cornwall and we try to make the cottage as cosy and homely as possible. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future!
Jasmine cottage has been tastefully renovated. We enjoyed our stay it was like home from home. The cottage was spotlesly clean when we arrived. And the little welcome cream tea was much appreciated after a 7hr trip. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. We all slept very well in the comfy beds with quality bed linen.
The garden is fully enclosed and is a good sun trap It's ideally situated within walking distance of porth beach for a walk with the dog at night. And it was a 30mins walk in to Newquay. We also walked on the tops to Watergates bay which took 45mins. I would recommend this cottage to friends. And hopefully we will return.
Many thanks for your lovely review. We were so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at Jasmine and that everything went well for you.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Cosy cottage with everything you could possibly need & more, plus an amazing courtyard garden
Communication before our stay by both owner and their housekeeper was great, which made us feel confident we'd made the right choice.
The cottage has everything you could possibly need and more. Small niggle, randomly there are lots of small pans, and for the 2 normal sized ones only 1 pan lid (made cooking a roast one night interesting but we managed it by sharing the lid around the pans lol !).
Love the creative decor in the courtyard garden, even on a dull day it was bright and cheery!
Ideally located for exploring all areas.
Farmers Arms nearby does fab meals, and can highly recommend the Cod End (for fish & chip), and Maharajah (for Indian) in Newquay, plus the Falcon Inn in St Mawgan is a must.
We'll be back!!
Many thanks for your lovely review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at our cottage. Apologies that our saucepans were not to our normal high standard. Originally the kitchen cupboard was well stocked with a range of small and large pans (with lids) and I had not realised this had changed - it could have only happened recently. I am so sorry that this was not sorted out in time for your stay. I have now re-equipped with plenty of large and smallI saucepans with lids!! We look forward to welcoming you back to our cottage in the future.
A charming cottage.
Jasmine cottage is pretty, comfortable and charming. We enjoyed our stay here, going for days out around, including some lovely walks and times on the beach.
Many thanks for your review. I am pleased you all enjoyed your holiday at Jasmine Cottage.
Home away from home
Lovely cottage in the old part of St Columb Minor opposite the church. Spotlessly clean with a welcome of scones, clotted cream and jam for afternoon tea and even milk. Everything was thought of for us, towels, hand soap, the basics that we all pack when going self catering. The local pub one minute walk was ideal and we were given a parking spot there so easy. The cottage was spacious for us and our small dog. Small but lovely garden to sit and enjoy our morning coffee before going on the various walks. We walked to Porth beach but only dog friendly after 7pm so we went to Watergate Bay via the old goat trail which starts opposite the cottage, walk along the headland which gave wonderful views across to Newquay and to Watergate Bay and beyond. Easy walk once on the head land and lovely beach on arrival, drinks and lunch in the Wax bar which was dog friendly. Lusty beach dog friendly well worth a walk to as bar restaurant which served great breakfasts. Fab cottage and lovely area in the country side but close enough for the surfers who would want to go into Newquay.
Thank you for your lovely and informative review, which I am sure will be helpful to others. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday in this beautiful part of Cornwall. Cornwall is very dog friendly, allowing dogs in pubs, shops, etc. Most of the beaches allow dogs all year, and we are hoping Porth beach will do this soon as well! At the moment dogs are allowed early in the early morning and after 7.00 p.m.in the summer months, but all year out of season. As you say, all the other beaches in the area allow dogs all year. We hope to welcome you back to Jasmine again soon!
Wonderfully quaint, clean and well located.
We had a lovely time at Jasmine cottage and so did our 2 small dogs. The cottage was spotless with many nice touches having been left for our arrival. It started us off on a sticky cream tea slope !
The cottage has a lovely small courtyard garden where you can barbecue all within a Cornish garden sun trap . For the evening there is a warm log fire if you need it, comfy sofas and tv/DVD player.
Upstairs is spacious, clean with comfy beds and lovely fresh linen.
The cottage is well appointed - close to a friendly pub - The Brewers Arms.
It's all well positioned in a small village near Newquay with easy access to all nearby attractions and places to visit.
The owners have really put some care and attention into Jasmine cottage with a little explantion as to the cottages history which dates back 4 /500 years, and is situated opposite an even old church.
Would highly recommend , and highly recommend the excellent communications from the owners.
Many thanks for your lovely review. So pleased you both (and your dogs) enjoyed your holiday at our cottage. It is, indeed, a lovely part of Cornwall, with lots to see and do whatever the weather! We always love to stay there ourselves when we can. We would love to welcome you back for a return visit.
