  • “Little Chycoose is a lovely house in a lovely setting but was spoiled by the poor standard of cleanliness throughout the house, including black mould around the bath and the windows, some of which we couldn't open.”

    The plastic cloth covering the table in the kitchen had not been wiped for a long time and when we cleaned it showed how dirty it was by looking at the grime on the cloth that was used. This was the same for many of the touch surfaces in the house including in the cow shed and the glass topped table in the garden. We felt we had to wash every utensil, cutlery and plate before we used them. A water jug was found to have dead flies in it and there were dead flies that had not been swept away from ...

    The plastic cloth covering the table in the kitchen had not been wiped for a long time and when we cleaned it showed how dirty it was by looking at the grime on the cloth that was used. This was the same for many of the touch surfaces in the house including in the cow shed and the glass topped table in the garden. We felt we had to wash every utensil, cutlery and plate before we used them. A water jug was found to have dead flies in it and there were dead flies that had not been swept away from floor space. The detergent drawer in the washing machine was filthy with brown stains encrusted inside it. This cottage has not been adequately cleaned for a long time. The whole house needs a deep clean to reach the standards we expect in a holiday cottage, never mind during a pandemic when cleaning standards are supposed to be paramount. This falls way below the standards we have come to expect in holiday cottages we have previously stayed in. If this is the standards we can expect in a Sykes Cottage we will not be booking with Sykes again.

The property

This handsome character residence offers families the chance to 'have it all', providing a relaxing escape from modern life pressures to a tranquil setting in the peaceful hamlet of Bissoe.

The ambience is far removed from the crowded coastal resorts however the location is close enough to premier visitor attractions and 6 miles equidistant to Truro, Cornwall's vibrant capital, and Falmouth, a maritime town with an amazing coastline and stunning beaches.

Little Chycoose is a lovely base for exploring all parts of Cornwall.

There are a host of opportunities being under 10 miles from the beautiful beaches and dramtic cliffs of the north coast and the meandering creeks and tidal moorings of the Roseland Peninsula.

Bissoe Cycle Hire and Loe Beach Watersports Centre are all located within a 10 minute drive and it is also an excellent destination for walkers and naturalists with scenic footpaths along the nearby creeks and inlets of the Truro and Falmouth rivers, the beautiful National Trust owned woodland park at Trelissick and the sub-tropical gardens at Glendurgan and Trebah, and there is also Cornwall's spectacular global garden,The Eden Project which is always worth a visit.

With lots to see and do you are guaranteed a memorable and fun-filled break.

A spacious cottage with contemporary kitchen and fabulous bi-fold doors which span the length of the kitchen taking you into the garden, above the kitchen there is a mezzanine floor.

There are two cosy sitting rooms with comfy sofas both have TV's, one also has an open fire and there is central heating throughout to ensure it is comfortable for breaks during all seasons.

About the location

TRURO

St Agnes 8.6 miles; Falmouth 11 miles; Redruth 11.5 miles, Newquay 13.6 miles, Eden Project 18 miles, Lizard Peninsula 18 miles, St Ives 25 miles, Land's End 36 miles..

Truro is the retail centre of Cornwall with a good range of independent shops as well as national stores all within a compact city centre. With its eclectic range of art galleries, bars, restaurants, cinema, theatre, museum and outstanding cathedral this small city is a superb year round destination. Steeped in history and intriguing architecture there is always plenty to do and see. Just meandering through the Georgian cobbled streets is a pleasure in itself. With many peaceful parks all within a short stroll from the centre it is a most relaxing city to visit. A wonderful day trip can be had from Truro to Falmouth along the stunning Fal estuary with many options to disembark and pick up the boat later along the scenic river trip.
