Captiain Blake's was a brilliant location for us as we were looking to walk with the dog and generally relax, it was very private and had amazing views, with a comfy (if very squeaky) bed, fantastic shower and equipped with the basics you would need. We had a fantastic week, just a few things that would help to improve things even more, some sort of water-tight box outside for dirty boots would be good and there was no vacuum cleaner or floor mop. We always like to leave things 'spick-and-span' but couldn't keep the place as well as we'd like. All the rubbish goes in to one bin, it would be nice to be able to sort out recycling separately. Tide timetable would be useful, it doesn't go out far and comes in really quickly as we found out when walking back along the beach one day!! Finally, having the keys for all windows and doors would be nice, one window was unlocked so we had to close the shutters every time we went out, we couldn't open the back door from outside, which would have helped with the dirty boots issue too. It's a newish place so I'm sure hope the feedback is useful, we will definitely be looking to return.

Great location, comfortable well thought out accommodation. Great welcome from Mount Edgcombe staff. Well worth a visit if you like a bit of isolation, quiet, wildlife, sea and sand, whatever the weather. Will be back.

If you have the chance to stay here, take it! It is a stunning location and a fantastic opportunity to completely lose yourself in the Cornwall coast and all it has to offer.

We had a wonderful 4 night stay in Captain Blake's Retreat blessed by glorious weather. It would be fabulous in any weather as it is comfortably furnished and the view is so fantastic . Excellent shower room and comfortable bed. Great meal at The View. The beaches are lovely when the tide is out but reaching them is a bit hair-raising as the paths close to the house are very steep and narrow, with nothing to hold on to, so not great for those who don't like heights. Easier access (though still many steps) at Sharrow Beach.

Thanks so much for your wonderful review of Captain Blake's Retreat - you certainly had some truly amazing weather to really enjoy those spectacular views! The coastal footpath is located only a few steps from your front door but we do recommend taking extra care on the path to the beach below (we're sure you'd agree that the beautiful beach is worth the climb but we're glad you found an alternative way down at Sharrow Beach).
