The Malthouse is such a lovely place to stay and we have just returned from a really enjoyable stress free week in this beautiful accommodation.
There were four of us and our dog and it is so tastefully decorated and beautifully clean.
Sarah and Ian kindly left a bottle of wine and some Cornish cookies, which was much appreciated and a lovely touch.
The location is very peaceful and within walking distance of Porthcothan Beach which we walked to and enjoyed a snack on arrival at the Beach cafe there. However there are several lovely beaches within a short distance from the cottage, great for swimming or surfing, and most were dog friendly. There are also some great walks around the area as well.
The Cornish Arms is only a couple of miles away, a Rick Steins restaurant, very friendly, good food and dog friendly, but advisable to book, especially in the Peak season.
The Ivy House is also a lovely place to eat, a restaurant not a pub, but delicious food. However we also enjoyed several evening meals back at The Malthouse with its well equipped kitchen, anything was easy to prepare. There is also a barbecue but the evenings were chilly so we didn’t have the opportunity to use it.
The garden is also a delight and the decking area catches the evening sun perfectly, a few G&Ts were enjoyed here!
All in all The Malthouse is one of the nicest holiday rentals we have stayed in in the U.K. and so very spacious. We have already booked to stay again later in the year and I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful holiday home.
Thank you Ian and Sarah.

Lovely, spacious holiday home in a great location. Very clean, comfortable and well provided for house with a private, enclosed garden. Sarah was really helpful throughout and we very much appreciated finding wine on our arrival. Thank you Sarah — Tanya, 19 Oct 2021
We had a week at The Malthouse 17-24th September to celebrate my big 50 birthday. For a few days our kids & partners stayed then 2 groups of friends came for the rest of the week. We loved the cottage so pretty & spacious lots of room for us all to have our own space and was perfectly equipped with everything you would need. The area was beautiful daily walks to Portcolthan bay to watch the sunsets were a must. Would definitely recommend this place to people looking for a quiet spot to stay, and who like to walk as lots of cliff walks to different bays near by. We loved the costal road to Newquay too such a beautiful coast line. Thanks Sarah for the wine & bubbly and for letting us have the pleasure of experiencing a beautiful cornish home for the week./ — Tanya Oxberry, 01 Oct 2021

Had a lovely week's stay at the Malthouse. Nice quiet location in walking distance to Porthcothan beach and the coastal path.
The cottage is nicely appointed with everything you need (although a coffee machine would be a nice addition), nicely furnished and very comfortable.
Very pleasant communication with Sarah and the whole booking and payment process was easy.
We would like to return in the future and would definitely recommend.

Five of us (4 adults and one 3 year old, plus a dog ) had a lovely mid-October week at The Malthouse. It is a most excellent holiday home, really comfortably furnished (including a bottle of wine in the fridge and flowers on the table when we arrived), very cosy and equipped with everything one could need; the completely enclosed garden is ideally safe for small children and a dog, and there is parking for 2 larger cars on the property. The Malthouse is in a quiet lane and a perfect position for exploring the beaches and coastal path between Newquay and Padstow; Porthcovan beach (one of the nicest) is about a mile away – too far for small children to walk to but a pleasant walk otherwise down a small lane at the start and then along a footpath (one steep bit). Covid restrictions prevented other family coming too, but hopefully will be able to join us on a future occasion – definitely a house to want to return to. — Anne Thomas, 25 Oct 2020
We have just spent a wonderful Christmas at The Malthouse. The house is beautiful with everything you need and was perfect on arrival with lovely Christmas decorations. The location is fantastic, quiet and very close to so many beaches. Would highly recommend this property. The whole process has been so smooth and Ian & Sarah are very helpful. We look forward to returning in the future. — Emma Josee, 03 Jan 2020
Just returned from a fabulous holiday at The Malthouse! The house was spotless on arrival and had everything we could wish for, for a home from home feel. The house is in a very quiet spot and very close to our favourite beach, Porthcothan. We enjoyed the spectacle of bats flying around in the evening at dusk! Thank you for the bottle of wine Ian and Sarah,we will be back again soon. — Julie Cook, 17 Jul 2019
We recently had a wonderful stay at The Malthouse. Absolutely beautiful house, with everything you could possibly need to make your stay easy. We waited years to holiday here with family and it was so worth the wait. We can’t wait to come back! — Layla Squire, 15 Sep 2018
