Overview

About the property

Self Catering, in quiet cul-de-sac with plenty of parking.

Crisalgo is situated in the village of Trevone one and a half miles from Padstow. Trevone has two fabulous beaches, a sandy beach for swimming and surfing and a rocky beach with hundreds of rock pools to explore for marine life at low tide.

About Joan Boon

Joan & Robin Boon live in Cornwall. Not too far from Crisalgo.

Robin's family have been connected with Trevone, Padstow and Crugmeer for many generations and therefore the area is very special to him.

Why Joan Boon chose North Cornwall

Crisalgo was passed to Robin in 2004. Robin and Joan then re-furbished the bungalow to use for themselves, family and friends and also for holiday letting.

What makes this bungalow unique

Crisalgo is ideally situated with sea views, plenty of parking and an interior that is suited to family holidays. We feel very fortunate to be able to spend time here ourselves.

Simply perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression of Crisalgo was, this looks good and our last impression was what a lovely time, where did that week go? We definitely hope to return soon.

A welcome pack of essentials including milk, tea bags, coffee and biscuits was very much appreciated and helped while we went through the folder containing all the house information. Not too many do's and don'ts we are glad to say.

The bungalow was very clean and more than well equipped for our needs. The property description was perfectly accurate.

Although we had fantastic weather we noticed plenty of leaflets, books and maps for local attractions and places to visit for all weathers. We had a great trip to The Lost Gardens of Heligan and on to Mevagissy afterwards. Also the cycle trail from Padstow was stunning.....and flat! If you are feeling less energetic there is a lovely garden where you can sit, relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

As for restaurants in the area there is obviously the Rick Stein influence but we would thoroughly recommend The Ivy House on the St Merryn road for a special evening. Other evenings were spent with a drink watching the sunset from the garden of the Well Parc hotel just along the road or the beach at Trevone.

The owners helped provide us with a holiday to remember, for all the right reasons, and we have already recommended Crisalgo to a neighbour.

Thankyou Joan and Robin.

Great beach holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Located only 5 mins walk from the beach with good grub pub at the end of the road.

Facilities in bungalow all one could need. Complimentary bottle of wine and breakfast croissants waiting for us on arrival.

Owner friendly and helpful and available by phone should we have needed it.

Comfortable accommodation which I can highly recommend.

Fabulous week's stay.

Well located and excellently presented

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfectly placed with a pub , cafe and beach in near walking distance. It is also a very reasonable direct walk to Padstow or a very good 5 mile walk around the coastal path. The house has everything you need and is clean and very well looked after. Plenty of space in the house, free wifi, good Tv, games ,garden etc ...I would recommend it highly. Many thanks to Joan and Robin.

You must stay here!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at 'Crisalgo' so as you can probably appreciate, we like the place....a lot! Always immaculately presented by the meticulous and thoughtful owners, clean and very well equipped. You will want for nothing.

Trevone is a lovely location and this bungalow is very well situated in a quiet lane within a five minute walk to the award winning, life guard patrolled beach (use the path to the right of the Well Parc pub). Sleeps six in comfort with a pull-out bed in the smaller bedroom. Well laid out with an open plan arrangement for lounge/kitchen/dining area.

Padstow and Tesco supermarket within a five minute drive although supplies are available from the surf store or farm shop (two minutes walk).

August 2015.

If you want to stay in North Cornwall, stay at 'Crisalgo', I promise you will not be disappointed.

PS My profile pictures shows a view of the stunning beach in Trevone.

Well located and equipped - ideal for family

  • 5 of 5

We stumbled across Crisalgo when looking for a reasonably priced property within walking distance of the beach somewhere near Padstow. Booking in March meant there was not much availability for the summer holidays other than Crisalgo however when we arrived we were more than happy with what we had got.

The house is well set up with the main room being open plan with a modern kitchen, dining area and sitting room meaning that no one misses any action. The room has excellent sea views from the large windows. The beds were all comfortable with linen provided and beds made up. The house is on a dead end road with minimal traffic.

The beach is a 10 minute walk with small kids (5 mins as a marching adult!). We walked through the Well Parc grounds so as to avoid the busy road down to the beach. The beach itself was ideal for our 4 and 6 year old boys with the benefit of a tidal pool having been formed at high tide which was shallow and safe for the kids to play in (can't guarantee this is a regular feature - it depends on how the sea is feeling).

The waves weren't too fierce meaning the kids could play in the waves as well (benefit of a life guard service as well). There is also the rocky beach with the tidal swimming pool and rock pooling possibilities meaning plenty to do.

Padstow is 2 miles away with Newquay 30 mins away as well.

Overall we were very pleased with our find and have already reserved for next year. The owners were great and met us to show us around the house and hand the keys over. They provided basic provisions, a large lemon drizzle cake, croissants, bottle of wine and cereals as a welcome which was really appreciated.

In summary, highly recommended for families or just adults and thanks for our time this year and we'll see you next year!

Well located, well kept, great for families

  • 5 of 5

We have already booked to go back to Crisalgo next Summer. Lovely house, great location.

We have boys, 4 and 6. They had plenty of room to avalanche their toys in the lounge if it rained (Though luckily it didn't). The layout is very practical, very spacious by the standard of holiday cottages, especially looking at value for money in the school holidays. The kitchen is well set out and has 3 or 4 work surfaces depending on how you use it (Important to us as we deal with some allergies, so we needed somewhere we could keep separate to prepare certain food). It's very easy to keep clean without worrying about wasting time while on holiday. The wide open glass across the front of the house makes for a beautifully lit lounge.

The garden is big enough to play in, the shed is very handy, and there is a hose which stretches into the garden, so it's straightforward to clean your wetsuits and store boards etc. The driveway fits a 4x4 and we had 3 guests so 3 cars on it at one point without any problems.

The street is quiet, with nice views between and above the houses of the sea and easy to drive down. For people visiting in August, important to note that the turn off is just above the point in the village where you risk being in a queue of giant Volvos waiting to get where you are going, so you don't risk scratching the side of the car every time you set off anywhere...

Trevone itself is the best beach we found for our kids - and while it's fun to drive to other beaches for a change, you cannot beat having a 5 minute stroll, and being straight by the beach, the surf and the rock pools. The farm shop in Trevone is 3 minutes away in case you fancy a croissant when you get up. The cafe and the surf shop by the beach are very fairly priced - twice they downsold us to cheaper stuff in the surf shop if they thought we were spending more than we needed to for occasional playing in the waves.

Rick Stein's pub (The Cornish Arms) is about 5 mins away (turn right as you leave Padstow and drive straight) and does a mean pint of prawns as well as more substantial meals. And Padstow within easy reach.

So, in all, we love Crisalgo - - it's a warm cheerful house to come back to after a day out, a day on the beach, or after a meal, and it's a great place to wake up and plan your day. Thank you Joan and family :)

Crisalgo is ideally placed to explore Padstow, the Camel Trail (on foot or by bycicle) and the rest of Cornwall. The Eden Project, Bedruthan Steps and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are all within easy reach. Cornwall boasts a large number of gardens that are a joy to visit including Pencarrow and Lanhydrock near Bodmin. Trebah and Glendurgan gardens are both close to Falmouth which is the home of the National Maritime Museum. Further afield are Lands End, the Minack Theatre at Porthcurno, Geevor Tin Mine and the spectacular engine houses overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at Botallack and much more!
