We have had a lovely week. The house is ideally situated and has catered for us all from one grandson aged 16 months to ancient grandparents and children and their partners. Thank you for thinking of and supplying everything that any of us could possibly want. Lovely walks and good food at both the Devonport and the Halfway Inn – the bakery is fabulous and everyone so friendly. The weather even held and we had some lovely sunny weather on Cawsand and Kingsand beaches. Really good food and Rick Stein’s seafood restaurant at Fistral Beach too! Thank you and see you again!

“Superb setting for a holiday with young children and their families”

Our group of six adults, four children six and under and one dog had a marvellous time at the Blue Monkey. It really is superbly equipped for groups like ours and totally lived up to our expectations and then some. The location is great with three beaches nearby (two dog-friendly), many rocks to climb, pubs to sample and ice cream windows to patronise. The house itself, on three levels, really accommodated our needs for space and privacy. The roomy kitchen was a hub of activity all day long, the beds and bathrooms were very comfortable and it seems every detail had been considered, from the Emma Bridgewater dishes in both china and plastic to the extra guard around the fireplace. The Blue Monkey is cleverly designed throughout and beautifully decorated. We can see why it is a consistent winner and we plan to return.

“Terrific- better than the best reviews”

This house was a total dream: it is stunning and immaculate with superb attention to detail and lovely chinaware and accessories, but so child friendly and homely that we were able to relax and feel at home here even travelling with 5 kids under 4yrs old.

It is ideally situated on a quiet one-way street between the two beaches of Kingsand and Cawsand (kids hurling up and down on balance bikes were universally greeted with smiles) and the local shop and play area are also well within walking distance.

I cannot emphasise enough how pleased we were to have chosen Blue Monkey and would heartily and highly recommend it to anyone considering holidaying here.

The Blue Monkey is a splendid house in great condition and spotlessly clean. It has loads of character inside and in the lovely court yard at the side and rear. Its meters away from the sea and the local pubs (one next door but one) serve really tasty food.

“Perfect for two families with small children, everything we needed was there..”

We had a great week in Cawsand staying at the blue monkey, everything we needed for both adults and children had been thought of and were their waiting for us including lots of dvd's. We found the house to be really comfortable to live in and the top (second) floor was great for children with two good master bedrooms on the first floor both with en-suites and roll top baths, one of which also has a gorgeous rain drop shower.

If you don't feel like cooking then we can also recommend the pub which is next door but one, we were even treated to some sea shanty singing but booking is recommended.
