Family With Older Children

Date of stay - 19 Sep 2020 - 26 Sep 2020

we have just returned from a week away with 2 elderly parents with limited mobility. Maria and Martyn are the prefect hosts and thought of everything from the welcome pack to dvds, games, and even body boards for guests to use. The caravan was spotless and fully equipped. The site was immaculate and the location was perfect with a five minute walk to the beach. Although we didn’t use the pool or facilities on site we did have a look and given more time we would not hesitate to take advantage of the pool and jacuzzi. We would definitely recommend Maria and Martyn’s Caravan if you want comfort, cleanliness and an excellent location !

It's lovely to read your positive review and really pleased you all enjoyed staying in our caravan. Thank you so much and we hope to see you again.

We would endorse all the positive reviews. Everything regarding booking, caravan amenities were excellent. Contact with Maria was outstanding every step of the way. We have never stayed in a cleaner holiday accommodation in this country or abroad! Sometimes things that niggle with us i.e. storage, shower ( power and space), understandable heating instructions, kitchen utensils that actually work, TV controls that are easy to use, plenty of good hangers, and even an umbrella etc. were all that we could hope for. The site facilities were good but a small shop on site and better Wi-Fi would make it unbeatable.

Thank you ever so much for your wonderful review. We are really pleased you had a lovely week in our caravan and thoroughly enjoyed yourselves. We hope to see you again in the future. Many thanks.

We had such a lovely stay at 41 The Dunes. Communication with Maria was excellent. The caravan is so spacious, we never felt cramped. It is so cosy and homely. Location is fantastic. Praa Sands is beautiful and there is so much to do and see nearby. Thank you for having us Maria and Martin, we will definitely return soon!

We're really pleased you all enjoyed staying in our caravan and had a great time. Praa Sands is in a great location with plenty to see and do in the area. Thank you for your lovely reviews and we look forward to seeing you next year ????

My wife daughter and I have just returned from a lovely weeks’ stay at 41 The Dunes. Prior to our arrival, the caravan had been immaculately cleaned and made ready for us. When we entered the caravan we were so pleased to see that fresh milk, tea, coffee, sugar and even a selection of biscuits had been provided. These were really appreciated after a four hour long drive to get there. Inside, the caravan comes equipped with an en-suite sink/toilet and a separate bathroom. The main double bedroom has lots of room, so even with your suitcases there’s plenty of space to walk around. Likewise, the second bedroom with twin beds is also spacious with plenty of storage space. The kitchen comes with a separate fridge and freezer, which we managed to fill at the start of the holiday when we had a Sainsbury’s home delivery arrive. I can heartily recommend having a food delivery to the caravan. The lounge diner is spacious and comes equipped with a nice wide screen TV, a blu ray player and an excellent selection of DVDs and blu rays. My wife, daughter and I made use of these and had a couple of fun movie nights during our stay. The caravan looks out onto a palm tree-lined lane on its front and beautiful green fields at the rear. Both outlooks have their own dedicated decking area, so no matter what time of day you sit out you can be sure of catching the sunshine. There is also paved parking next to the caravan so you don’t have far to go to load and unload. I can heartily recommend this caravan as a base for your holiday. It really felt like a home from home and we look forward to returning in the not too distant future.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, we're really pleased you all enjoyed staying in our caravan and had a fantastic holiday. It's lovely to know that you were very comfortable and had everything you needed. Many thanks also for keeping our van clean and tidy, we really appreciate it. We hope you can return next year. Take care. :-)

41 The Dunes was a fabulous base for our week in Cornwall, it felt like a real home from home. Communications with the owner was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. We found a welcome pack when we arrived, which was indeed very welcome and plenty of additional information in a folder easy to hand. Beautifully clean and well laid out interior with at well equipped kitchen which was more than enough for our needs. Comfortable and spacious seating and dinning area. Lovely big shower and comfortable bed. We found the caravan site to be quiet and relaxing. Lovely sunny terrace to have breakfast on, a real treat and just a stones throw from such a beautiful beach too. I can happily say our entire stay here was delightful and we would highly recommend 41 the Dunes. We will defiantly return. Many thanks to Maria and Martyn.

Thank you ever so much for the wonderful review, we love hearing that our guests thoroughly enjoy staying in our caravan. It is important to us to ensure you have everything you need to make your holiday a Happy one. We're looking forward to your return, thanks again, Maria and Martyn

We were so pleased with our stay at 41 The Dunes. The caravan was spotlessly clean and felt very homely. The site is very well kept and a short walk down to a beautiful beach. Maria always kept us informed and we had a welcome pack on arrival as did our dog which was greatly appreciated! We hope to be back soon.

Thanks ever so much for the lovely review. I'm really pleased you and your dog enjoyed the welcome pack. I clean the caravan myself to ensure it is spotless for my guests, good to know my hard work is appreciated. As you've given a 9 for Facilities, please email me what you would like on site, and I'll inform the manager. We look forward to your return. Thank you again, Maria

I would agree with the previous post, it is so nice to find a caravan that lives up to all that is advertised. The caravan was immaculate and smelt lovely (always a big plus in my book). Perfect sunny location. Very much home from home. Great communication with the owners. Already booked a return trip, so that says it all :)

Thank you Kelly for your lovely review. My aim is to keep it as homely as possible for guests, to make sure everyone has an enjoyable holiday. We look forward to welcoming you again next year. Many thanks, Maria

The Caravan is situated on a Picturesque Site with Good Facilities. There are Beautiful Walks with the Beach only a short Walk away.We had a great Time!
