Beautiful spacious house for a large family. Plenty of country walks and beach surrounding the area. All rooms of high standards . Bedrooms beds very comfortable. Apart from a couple of issues we throughly enjoyed our stay at The Retreat .

It certainly sounds like this property worked out perfectly for you all. It really is a lovely place, so we are glad that you liked it. We are sorry that we had not known of these issues until your departure day, as we would have had someone over to sort this out for you. Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention now though so that we could have trades over to fix this. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a lovely family get together at The Mount. Really comfortable accommodation with loads of space for everyone to relax. Beautifully quiet surroundings in the middle of the countryside. It was a lovely surprise to have a Christmas tree too- thank you.

A beautiful house, home to home and more!

Great place to stay in a large group. Although it could do with more facilities ie hot tub or pool and a play park for the children. There is plenty of room in the grounds

On arrival the travel cot was missing however aspects provided one within about an hour of reporting it. The house was great and had the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. The property had everything we needed and I can not recommend it highly enough. Great space for the kids, lovely outdoor space, plenty of parking and lovely and clean. Great holiday house.

The Retreat at Mount was the perfect home for a large family holiday with a dog. The house was spacious with room for both children, dog and adults and the gardens were perfect for exercising both dog and children and the smaller back garden was a sheltered warm place for an evening BBQ. We would love to book this property again for another fun filled family half-term holiday.

We had a lovely stay, everything was above or beyond our expectations, plenty of space, beautifully decorated rooms, extremely well stocked kitchen, really appreciated the little things like soap, shower gel, dishwasher &washing tablets. We all had a really enjoyable time and would definitely recommend a stay at The Retreat.

We had such an amazing stay at The Retreat at Mount. The house was in a great location for many of the North Cornwall beaches and only took 40 minutes to get into Falmouth. The house was a great size and had multiple social areas for a large group. All rooms were good sizes and the garden was lovely with views over the countryside. We were amazed with how well equipped the house was - there wasn’t anything the property owners didn’t supply!! The cream tea and bread were an added bonus on arrival! We would certainly visit again! Thank you for an amazing stay!!!

We had a lovely week in The Retreat in Mount. The house was spacious, spotless & well equipped. Lovely sandy beaches nearby where Social distance could be maintained. We hope to come back again in the future.

After booking the Retreat at Mount for a week over Christmas Including Christmas Day with a well equipped kitchen that coped with serving Christmas dinner to 12 people, we weren’t disappointed. The Ground floor bedroom served well for our elderly in-laws and it was perfect everyone having there own bathroom and we never were short of hot water either. The dogs were safe to run around the back yard (unfortunately the front gates had a gap allowing easy escaping jack Russell’s) and plenty of great walks right on the doorstep although a little windy. If I had to give a negative it would be the tin opener didn’t work and the WIFI wasn’t too strong to cope with 12 adults. So we had to talk and eat fresh produce.... I would highly recommend this house to anyone and will definitely use aspect holidays again. Superb!!

It certainly sounds like you had a fantastic Christmas week here. It was great to read just how well this property worked for all the family. We are sorry if our description of the front garden being semi enclosed, did not make it clear enough, and if this hadn't been what you expected. Whilst there is a wall around the front garden, there is a gate onto the driveway that has gaps big enough for some dogs to fit through, so it is definitely something that should be considered, though we are glad that the enclosed area at the rear of the property offered you a suitable space for your dogs. Thanks for your helpful comments. Tanya, Customer Services

A spacious well equipped holiday home, with all you could possibly need. Set down a small cornish lane it is nicely private and has plenty of parking. Not far from the beaches and some great places to visit nearby.

Wow what a beautiful property. Have just returned from a weekend celebrating our parent's Diamond Wedding Anniversary. Plenty of room for everyone. Bedrooms are gorgeous and the kitchen is so well equipped as are the bathrooms, towels and hairdryer supplied in every room. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise. Large grassed area at the front which our dog loved. Great location too. Toys galore for children, although we didnt have any with us. Would highly recommend this property and will be staying again I am sure. The Ambrose Family.

The Retreat is a fabulous house between Newquay and Perranporth. It sleeps 12 across six bedrooms, five of which are en suite and there’s also a further bathroom and toilet. The house is very well appointed with a huge lounge and kitchen with a separate dining room. There is everything you might need whether you’re a big family, like us (11) or a group of friends. There is drying space under cover for wetsuits and boards and a downstairs shower near the front door as you return from the surf or beach. The house is 15 minutes walk from a great local pub which does really good food. Highly recommended.

The retreat at Mount was a lovely place to stay. It was very clean, comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. The outside space was great as well. Plenty of parking space and a big lawn for the kids to run round. We would highly recommend it.

The Retreat was a fantastic house for our family to stay in. It was extremely well equipped in the kitchen and space for food to be stored, as well as Tupperware boxes for picnics. The rest of the house was the same with plenty of books, games, activities for the children to do and nets to go crabbing with. The house is really well decorated and furnished, plenty of space for the 12 of us to feel at home. The welcome package was amazing and very much appreciated!

An amazing house to stay in so much room even though we had 7 adults 3 children and 2 dogs. Absolute luxury and a real treat to stay there. The kitchen is so well equipped it was a pleasure to stay at The Retreat. Beautiful gardens both at the front and back of the house, the back is a proper sun trap, lovely to sit in with a glass of something cold !!

Just returned from an amazing weeks holiday in wonderful accommodation booked through Aspects Holidays. This excellent company ensured that the accommodation was beautifully kept where high standards of cleanliness and comfort were second to none! I highly recommend Aspects as an agent who are customer focussed and nothing is too much bother. Well done Aspects. I look forward to booking with you again in the future.

Loved everything about this beautiful house, and the surroundings, décor was really well equipped, beds were super comfy. Everything was lovely and clean. The scones, clotted cream and jam was a lovely treat to be greeted by on arrival!

We stayed for my Mum's 60th birthday week, 9 of us...and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Fabulous house. Everything you could possible need for a weeks holiday. They thought of everything. Would not hesitate to recommend the house or the company to anyone

Good standard and great having 5 ensuite bedrooms which meant no queues for the bathroom in the morning.

Very impressive, excellent accommodation for a large family group. It met all our needs and more. Thank you.

This is an excellent property very well appointed. Lots of attention to detail. Wonderful welcome pack. Full of goodies. Chocolate cake, fresh farm eggs, fresh fruit, Apple juice plus all the usual stuff bread milk tea coffee etc etc etc . Also lots of toys for the younger ones. A great place to stay. We shall be back.

A fabulous property in a peaceful location, beautifully and freshly decorated with en suites for all except one bathroom. very well stocked with equipment and greeted with a personal welcome note, a really lovely food and drink pack with a varied fruit basket, beautiful fresh flowers and a comprehensive supply of the basics (bread, milk, butter, scones, cream and butter).

Lots of space for different people to group and sit together, watch to or films or eat casually or more formally. A great location for walkers with both beaches and the coastal path both relatively close.
