About 8 The Ridges

Set in a prime location above Maenporth Cove with wonderful sea views from its balcony, this apartment is perfect for couples and small families alike. The Leisure Centre and BBQ area are a short stroll away with the tennis/pickleball courts and children’s playground beyond. The beautiful sandy beach is just down the hill, with access to scenic coastal walks in both directions.

Quality Standard

Our holiday homes are independently assessed every year. We market 3* or higher accommodation and actively encourage continuous improvement.

Guests are asked to complete a property review shortly after they have finished their holiday. A review form is also available at reception and can be completed prior to departure. All guest comments are sent to an independent assessor and your views are also passed on to the owner.

Additional Information

A couple of steps lead down from the parking area to a shared hallway, with 8 The Ridges directly accessed from here. Inside, a very short flight of stairs leads up from the entrance hall to the open-plan living room. There is a comfortable seating area with Wi-Fi, Smart TV with Freeview +, digital radio, and a small dining table. Decorated throughout in white and maritime blues, coastal photography and local artwork decorate the walls. The kitchen area is fully equipped with fridge-freezer, induction hob and cooker, dishwasher and microwave, with a washer-dryer tucked away in the hall cupboard. Patio doors lead from the living room out to the enclosed balcony, complete with a table and chairs. This is the perfect place to sit with a glass of wine on summer evenings, watching the sea shimmer as the sun goes down or catch the early sunrise and watch Maenporth beach come to life every morning.

An inner hallway leads through to the bedrooms – a double room with a double bed and a twin room with two single beds – which look out towards the giant Monterey pines in the distance. There is a TV with Firestick in the master bedroom. The family bathroom (bath, fitted shower, WC and wash-basin) sits between the bedrooms and the living room.

Always warm whatever the season, there are electric panel heaters in every room, with a heated towel rail in the bathroom.

Regrettably, guests are not permitted to bring dogs or pets of any kind to the property or site. However, owners are allowed to do so. This owner will not be bringing a dog to the property at all during the time he owns 8 The Ridges.

So pleased my cousin recommended Maenporth. She said, “It’s just you!”. I have enjoyed my stay. No. 8 is very comfortable and immaculate. Weather amazing and I loved the balcony, being able to see such a gorgeous view. Reception staff- kind, friendly and helpful.

We came as an early celebration of our 50th anniversary and had a wonderful time. We had great weather and a gorgeous time on the coast. Perfect recharge of batteries.

Lovely apartment, great views, an enjoyable week. Good food at the Cove. The Ship, Porthleven is also worth a visit.

We enjoyed a wonderful sunny break here. The kitchen was so well equipped that meals were fantastic! The weather was amazing and the views superb. We would highly recommend this holiday to friends. Also, I thought the layout here was better than in other apartments. Very clever use of the space.

A lovely stay despite the mixed weather! Great location next to the beach, and great to see the pool open and the staff making such an effort despite the circumstances this year. I would highly recommend this property!

Lovely stay at 8 The Ridges. Perfect location with a lovely sheltered beach offering rock pools and shallow sandy sea. Great facilities and a lovely uncrowded pool. Handy for the quaint but bustling port of Falmouth and in easy reach of the north coast for surfing, so whatever the weather you can normally track down some sun. Trying to persuade the nine-year-old boy to go anywhere else ever again is proving difficult…... 10/10
