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
