  • Mr Levy

    “A beautiful stay.”


    Only a couple of days with my brother's but we very much enjoyed the time we were in the house. Worth pointing out to the owner though, there was a smell coming from the bathroom, as a plumber I can with some certainty say this was coming from one of the wastes, probably the bath waste. That said it did not impede on our enjoyment too much. Will definitely be back for another stay with my wife next year as not only a comfortable place to stay but equally important for us is the location of the property, perfect for our favourite location's. Highly recommend. Mickie.

    Hi Mickie, So glad you enjoyed Splatt and many thanks for the heads up re. the odour in the bathroom, will check it out immediately. Have a great Christmas. Cheers Phillippa Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback which we have passed to the owner and they will investigate further. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Splatt House and hope you'll choose the property for your next Cornish break. Property Owner

About the location


Porthtowan 2 miles ; St Agnes 2.5 miles ; Truro 7.5 miles

Mount Hawke is a small village just outside St Agnes and Porthtowan on the north Cornish coast. Once heavily involved in the local copper mining industry, today Mount Hawke is quiet and mainly residential. There is a church which is dedicated to St John the Baptist, and a very good gastro pub – The Old School Bar & Kitchen – which is, as the name suggests, in a restored, traditional school building. There is also a Post Office, a couple of shops, a primary school, village park and Cornwall’s largest indoor skate park. Porthtowan beach is a pleasant walk from the village, through woodland and a pretty valley, and St Agnes Beacon and the coastal footpath are also within easy reach. Kayak hire and tours are available at St Agnes, as are surf lessons. There are also riding stables at nearby Goonbell, which offer countryside hacks and treks as well as pub hacks, summer picnic rides and children’s Pony Days.

Note: Low lintel (5’4”) to steep open tread stairs (top stairgate) up to landing (5’5” lintel)
