Mr Henty December 2021
Simply stunning house, very well equipped and tidy. Superb location. Would definitely recommend booking hot tub.
Ms Partridge November 2021
Incredible location and exceptionally well appointed house for a large group - such a perfect place to relax with the family - and especially in November!
Brilliant kitchen with absolutely everything you could want! Dining room gorgeous with children's table too - and wonderful panoramic sitting room. We loved the terrace and enjoyed many hot tub moments through the day and especially at sunset and in the evenings. Bedrooms and bathrooms all clean and comfortable.
Brilliant selection of DVD’s - very useful for overtired children!
Mr Miller October 2021
The owner has obviously spared no expense in furnishing and equpping this property. Everything is of a high quality and it was a pleasure to stay there. The house is very well insulated - both sound and warmth - and the beds are extremely comfortable. Upon arriving, the house was spotless and the houskeeper had prepared a welcome gift of fresh flowers together with the ubiquitous "Cornish Cream Tea" of scones, jam and cream. Our only regret is that we had only booked for one week - which is not long enough!
Mr Hitchman August 2021
Perfect setting to watch the sun go down with a nice glass of wine. Easy reach of Port Gaverne. Fantastic accommodation for our group of 14 couldn’t ask for anything more.
Mrs Sheat June 2021
Location of the cottage was fantastic The lay out of the cottage was really good As a large family we had plenty of room with out being in each other’s space this also allowed us to all socialise together in comfort
Mrs Fox May 2021
We love this house. It is exceptional for large groups. Hot tub was a good addition as beaches were packed and we spent more time at the house than we usually would have. Thank you and owners for the happy times we have spent at Silver Spray over the past five years

Mrs Jahn October 2020
We had a wonderful week's stay the week before Lock Down, the House and Location is just STUNNING, the house is perfect for everyone, for strenuous cliff top walks from the door, to strolling into Port Gayverne and Port Isaac (lovely to potter around), for GREAT food in local pub and in Port Isaac (just a stroll away), to just sitting inside or outside watching out onto the fantastic panoramic sea view - WHAT A TREAT PLACE. We will definitely be returning - THANK YOU for sharing this property with us. Oh and there are great places to visit near by, Castles, Surfing Beaches......
Mr Demetriou October 2020
The property is in a stunning location with incredible views and a wonderful coastal walk right on the doorstep. The house itself has everything you need and is furnished to a very high standard throughout.
A trip to Boscastle is definitely worth the drive as is Padstow.
The only minor quibble is the lack of detergent for the washing machine which is a little odd considering dishwasher tablets are provided. We brought our own but I think it would be a nice touch to provide some, even just enough for 1 or 2 washes.
Would highly recommend this property.
Mr Harker September 2020
Silver Spray is a superb property in a great location. We have had 2 great family holidays here and would recommend it to anyone with a large group of friends or family.

Mr Spink August 2020
Perfect cottage base for getting out and about in Cornwall. What an amazing spot. Bright, spacious, well kitted out. We watched dolphins from the terrace! We will be back again.
Mrs Slater July 2020
This is a lovely house in the most fabulous location. We had an amazing week here. The sunsets were so pretty. We loved Port Gaverne with its pub and swimming or jumping off the rocks and we enjoyed walking into Port Isaac and took a great boat trip. We all enjoyed surfing at Polzeath & Dayner bay. The views are just amazing and we would love to come back one day. Thank you to Jane the housekeeper and her husband for the help they gave us.
Mrs Heaton Smith July 2020
It is the third year we have stayed there. We love it and have already booked for next year !
Mrs Atkins March 2020
Silver spray was a brilliant property for our family gathering.It was spacious enough to hold 14 people comfortably and had plenty home comforts and almost every piece of kitchen and dining equipment you would ever need. Lovely views ,excellent balconies. My only regret that we were not stopping longer and didn’t get the weather to use the bbq pit!
Mr Theedom February 2020
Simply the best family holiday cottage that we have stayed in .We usually have a family holiday for 14 of us each year & this is the best. The position ,views & space for the grandchildren were ideal & although the weather was wet & windy it did not spoil our holiday in any way
Mr Maggs October 2019
Ideal holiday home for a large party, everything you need to have a lovely holiday, would highly recommend
Mrs Druce September 2019
What a fantastic house in a great position. The views are amazing, especially the sunsets. A very well equipped house. Thirteen adults were in our party. The house was plenty big enough. New kitchen definitely has the wow factor. Bbq area and patio beautiful designed. Nice, quite hilly walk into Port Isaac and a nice drive to lots of lovely areas. Would highly recommend and everyone is talking about going again.
Mr Harker August 2019
Everything was just "spot-on" from the moment we arrived to the time that we left. Many thanks for playing your part in the making of a wonderful holiday.
Mr Ash July 2019
Silver Spray is one of those rare properties that provides guests with the most amazing sunsets, all round views, tranquility and peacefulness. Everything you need is available from an outside barbecue to the dvd box set of Doc Martin! From the first minute of arrival being welcomed by Jane and Maggie, through to yoga on the lawns, a free ride up the hill in the tuk-tuk and numerous walks along the coastal path. Our stay was perfect indeed.
Mrs Worringham June 2019
Such an amazing property and location. 2nd year at Silver spray and would highly recommend.
Mr Egerton April 2019
Fabulous and worth every penny
Mrs Janew April 2019
This is an exceptional cottage. It was immaculately clean on arrival and the housekeeper, Jane was welcoming and helpful throughout. The house was warm, the beds were comfortable and the showers were wonderful. We are a family of 14 - 8 adults and 6 children. There was plenty of space for all both inside and out. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.We liked the panoramic views from the house and watching the beautiful sunsets from the patio. We liked the Port Gavern Hotel for drink.
Mrs Mistry February 2019
The house had probably the best views of any house I've ever rented, and we were lucky with the weather. But with the heating, even in February it was possible to watch the clouds shedding by, the next weather front approaching and the waves breaking on the rocks. Magic!
Mrs Chevallier December 2018
Beautiful location and views. House extremely well equipped and comfortable. Loved the second sitting room which gave the young people (late teens/early twenties) somewhere to hang out. Perfect for family gatherings or special occasions with friends.
Mrs Blacker August 2018
Silver Spray is beautiful house in a lovely position. Everything provided for a very special holiday. We had a lovely holiday and would thoroughly recommend it.
Mrs Minns August 2018
Silver Spray is a very special place for a holiday in Cornwall. The setting is stunning with views to die for. We were lucky enough to see some incredible sunsets and sit on the terrace barbecuing whilst watching the sun go down. The cottage is decorated to a high standard and the owners really have thought of everything when it comes to catering for a large party whilst on holiday. What more can I say - we absolutely would recommend Silver Spray to anyone thinking of staying there.
Mrs Worringham June 2018
It was a beautiful house in a wonderful location. Everything you could possibly need was there. Absolutely brilliant.
Mr Thomson June 2018
A great location with spectacular views, a beautiful house with lots of space and fantastic base to explore North Cornwall with a foot path outside your front door!
Mr Currie June 2018
3rd visit in about 10+ years. 3 generations this time. Great house for family holiday. Still lots to do and see in the area with the new family generation. Hope we will be back for 4th holiday at Silver Spray.
Mr Haigh May 2018
We had a most enjoyable week celebrating our 60th wedding anniversary with our children, grandchildren & great grandchild.We spent the week enjoying excursions to beaches for the surfing and swimming for the young ones ,and generally exploring Cornwall.We had a most enjoyable lunch at Nathan Outlaws fish kitchen with our son and daughter and spouses , and also visited Rick Steins seafood restaurant in Padstow for a private celebration. Silver spray was everything we expected and more.All of us enjoyed ourselves in various ways fishing of the rocks below the house, walking down to the pub in Port Gaverne or just sitting in the wonderful lounge looking at the marvellous views.Probably the highlight of the week was the barbecue on the last night and watching the sunset .Thank you for a fantastic week.
Mrs Middleton March 2018
Greatest house in Cornwall
Mr Joyce December 2017
Nothing to say except the perfect holiday property for large group. Hope to use again very soon.
Mrs Book December 2017
The property was so comfortable and the views so lovely that we didn’t even mind the poor weather during our stay!
Dr Commander October 2017
All the rooms were really clean, tidy and comfortable. The selection of videos kept the children well entertained. Having a small kiddies table and chairs was a great touch and all our grandchildren loved them for meal times. The separate lounge area with TV and sofa was a lovely “escape” place. The SW Coastal Path is literally on your doorstep and walking the path provides some stunning views.
Ms Page September 2017
A marvellous house for a large group. Excellent shared spaces, comfy bedrooms, great showers and other facilities. And the location is the best - cliff walks, swimming in the cove, sea kayaking and a nice pub are all on the doorstep. Shops and other pubs/cafes just a short walk away. So relaxing to have everything close by! Everyone loved it
Mr Kitley July 2017
Great location and views. Dogs loved the beach at Port Gaverne
Mr Waldron June 2017
Superb views, lovely facilities & we all had a great time- thankyou & please tell the owner so.
Mrs Wright June 2017
Fabulous house which greatly exceeded our expectations. Magnificent views from the patio area and from most rooms in the house. Beds, linen and towels all very good quality which is not always the case in holiday rentals. We had a wonderful time and hope to come again
Mr Rockliffe May 2017
A superb cottage in a stunning location with breathtaking views. Extremely well equipped and comfortable. Plenty of room even when fully occupied.
Mr Watkeys February 2017
11 adults, 2 children (6 & 3) and a 9 month baby spent a week at Silver Spray to celebrate an 80th birthday. We were all bowled over by the space, fabulous views and how well stocked the place was. The weather wasn't, the best but didn't' stop us having a great family time together with plenty of blu-rays (250 provided), books and a selection of games to suit all. The proximity of Port Isaac was fab and the coast path was just outside the drive. We did have one problem when the hot waster stopped working and the heating and after contacting the housekeepers (Maggie and Jayne) a plumber was dispatched to find the problem. It turned out we were out of oil. The owner had oil delivered 1st thing the following day with the plumber being there by 8am to get it all working again. On the day we had without heat the plumber turned the immersion heaters on constant for us to have hot water and we were supplied with 4 heaters with the promise of more if we needed them. All in all, I was very impressed with how an emergency was dealt with so quickly and efficiently. This in no way spoilt our week and I'd gladly holiday there again and recommend to all. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Ms Scott October 2016
A fabulous holiday home for all the family. Three generations accommodated perfectly. So hard to leave at the end of our stay.
Mrs Parker September 2016
A beautiful house in a stunning location with panoramic sea views. An ideal property for guests with mobility problems as once inside the house the main living area is all on one level along with 3 of the bedrooms and 1 bathroom. A short walk to a sheltered cove that is ideal for swimming. Port Isaac is on the next headland and a 10 minute walk away. There is direct access onto the coast path which is ideal for those that enjoy walking.
Mrs Aplin September 2016
Beautiful house with stunning views. Spotlessly clean. The two lounges are a bonus if booked by two families. Very well equipped, blissfully comfortable beds! Easy to get to the surf beach of Polzeath, stone circles on Bodmin moor, and if you are able go to Wadebridge and hire bicycles and cycle to Padstow. Cannot recommend this property highly enough.
Mrs Walsh July 2016
A fabulous house and location, even in bad weather, there's always something to look at. We have been going to Silver Spray for many years and hope to go for many more.
Mrs Fox May 2016
This large house is in an amazing location. Walk to the Lovely welcoming pub at Port Gaverne and coastal walk on you doorstep takes you to Heavenly places
Mrs Nisbet May 2016
This is a stunning property in a wonderful location. Wonderful to sit on the terrace in the evening and watch marvellous sunsets.
Mrs Green April 2016
To wake up in the morning with the amazing coastal view is breathtaking. But the sunset on a clear night with the property facing west is awesome. I would recommend any large family or group to stay in this house, you could never be disappointed. We have stayed twice now and just love everything about it.
Mrs Scott March 2016
Stunning location, fabulous views, lovely coastal walks from the house. An excellent choice for large parties.
Dr White March 2016
Silver Spray is in an excellent location and the sea views from almost every room are wonderful. The house is very well equipped and spacious for a large group. We're hoping to book again in 2017!
Mrs Smith January 2016
This was the perfect property for this time of the year, although would imagine would be excellent in summer too. But when going in winter there was plenty of room for everyone and lots of things in the house films/books etc to keep everyone entertained. Access to coast path was a bonus and pub and Port Isaac in such close proximity was excellent. Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone. And would definitely like to come back one day.
Mrs McManus November 2015
Fabulous location & property. Lovely coastal walks & a short walk to the local pub & Port Isaac.
Mrs Grealish September 2015
Beautiful house ,wonderful location views of surrounding countryside and the Atlantic magnificent.
Mrs Challis July 2015
Excellent position and facilities in house that you don't have to venture out. Apart from going dowm to port gaverne hotel for lunches and evening drinks!!!! Great holiday enjoyed by all.
Mr Davis July 2015
Excellent accommodation in a beautiful location.
Mr Eaton July 2015
The location, layout and decor of this house are first class. We count ourselves very lucky to have had the opportunity to stay in this magnificent house. There are stunning sea views from almost every room and the beach at Port Gaverne and the Port Gaverne Hotel are only a short walk away. The kitchen is a chef's dream and you have the impression that the owners have thought of everything and have left nothing to chance.
Mr Featley June 2015
Ideal setting. Excellent accommodation.
Miss Draper May 2015
Excellent property for large groups, outstanding location and views, wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend to others.
Mr Donaldson April 2015
This is the most beautiful spot I've ever stayed in. Stunning views from the property and a very short walk down to the cliffs to spend 10 minutes looking over the water with your morning brew...
Mrs Bradley April 2015
Thoroughly recommend Silver Spray cottage, and the booking process through Classic Cottages. We had an amazing time. The property, location and facilities were amazing. The property was scrupulously clean, the facilities were top notch and we had a wonderful time.
Mrs Woodward September 2014
Fabulous place for a get-together.
Mrs Parker September 2014
A beautiful property with stunning views from all rooms. Plenty of space for a large group to dine and relax.
Miss Allen August 2014
Mrs Cray July 2014
A fantastic house with views to die for! If you have the weather (which we did) there is no need to leave Silver Spray to go anywhere else - you can have your breakfast on the huge balcony and relax all day until the sun goes down, then light the fire pit, have a barbecue and sit around telling stories well into the night! If it's raining you can still enjoy the sea views from nearly every room and all gather around the large dining room table for a home cooked meal, made in the great, well-equipped kitchen.
Mrs Holloway June 2014
Silver spray is a paradise property with the most stunning views over the coast of Port Isaac! Would definitely recommend this beautiful house!
Mrs Bell May 2014
As a holiday cottage owner myself I was very impressed with the layout, position and cleanliness. A perfect party house. Well maintained and run. It is clear that the owners have a rolling improvement plan. The patio when finished will be fabulous and good to have the "lower" level outside to protect from the breeze on cooler days. All very well thought out.
Mrs Middleton April 2014
My family and I have been going to Silver Spray for at least 14 years and over that time have had the most wonderful holidays, on coming home we miss it terribly. Over the years the owners have improved it beyond all belief, the new patio and glass surround will greatly help outdoor activities. Silver Spray is one of the greatest holiday cottages you will find in England. J Middleton
Miss Barrett March 2014
Excellent property. Views fantastic and well equipped and comfortable. Great for large parties
Ms Scott October 2013
Lovely house, very comfortable - has everything you could need in terms of cooking, entertainment and outside space. Wonderful views and sunsets over Port Issac to be enjoyed with a glass of wine.
Mrs Potepa September 2013
The house and the location are amazing, would recommend it to anyone with a large party. The kitchen is very well equipped which made catering for 14 people easy.
Mrs Arden May 2013
This spacious, beautifully furnished property is in the most wonderful location, with fantastic views which take your breath away, whether at different times of the day or through different changes in the weather. Plenty of bedrooms, modern bathrooms, two sitting rooms and a huge dining table make this an outstanding property for special occasions for friends or family. The large, well-equipped kitchen- with two of everything- is a pleasure to use. Everything has been thought of to ensure that your stay is the best it can be.
Mr Boughen April 2013
Silver Spray is a house and location which anyone would find hard to beat. I have always said I would never stay in the same place two years running. We have done this now and are already planning our third. Cornwall has much to offer but really there is no need to go any further than this little port and Port Isaac next door. Try Chough Bakery's lovely pasties either in Port Isaac or Padstow. Cream teas at Vivs on the way to Wadebridge. Meals at the Mote restaurant in Port Isaac harbour. Fresh fish from the Aquarium Port Isaac harbour. Gorgeous fresh lobsters from Fresh From The Sea, Port Isaac.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
