    • “We spent Christmas”

    Mrs Ward, Ryde, December 2018

    • “During the past nine years or so that we have been booking with them, Helpful Holidays have always been very - well,helpful. Now that they appear to have been taken over by Sykes Holiday Cottages we are less than delighted. Sykes Cottages have imposed a booking fee, which Helpful Holidays never did; they have removed the Family & Friends discount, which Helpful Holidays gave us; and they have increased the rental charge without any consultation with the owners of the holiday cottage. We have been going to the same holiday cottage for all these years - because it suits us and we like it. There is no advantage to us in having a much wider range of cottages to choose from. We have booked our holiday for next year - same weeks, same cottage - and it is costing us over £300 more than our holiday this year. We are not happy with Skyes Holiday Cottages.”

    Mr Green, REDHILL, September 2018

    • “Lovely time at the cottage. It was mainly ideal for our circumstances with enough space and all on one level. A seat in the shower for our disabled aged relative would have enabled use of that for them, standing using the bars was not an option and a stool in the hall could move about in the shower and was too low. That being said they did not advertise that this would be available and not knowing fully what space we had to play with meant the one used at home was left behind. The owners were helpful and asked us to contact them should anything be needed , other than that they kept their distance and were not in our pockets. Lots of information about local things to see and do. The Blisland Inn is a real bonus, being within easy walking distance for anybody without mobility problems and with plenty of parking around the village green. We were advised by bar staff to book for Sunday lunch if we wanted to eat in the restaurant part, which was a good tip for there are no many tables in that part. In the bar and outside you can order off the bar menu which is extensive, food from local producers and reasonably priced. All the people in the bar were friendly and helpful and we even went to do the pub quiz on a Weds night. The post office/ shop/café was not open every day and closed part of some days and sells newspapers and basic food needs. Nearest supermarket is Asda, a short drive away and is a large one. The church in Blisland is said to be John Betjemen's favourite. It is small inside with Norman features with a very impressive ornate altar and is open for anybody to wander around. Most disappointed by Pencarrow House, despite all its blurb. Booking through Sykes was easy and very detailed information was provided, unlike other similar booking sites.”

    Ms Buckle, Burnham-on-Sea, September 2018

    • “ALL i can say is Helpful holidays made one week in the year stress free and enjoyable thank you so much........”

    Mr Clew, Liverpool, August 2018

    • “Well furbished cottage with all what is needed to relax. Kitchen facilities adequate, with dishwasher. Nice garden and room for table tennis available for guests. Nice and cozy for a relaxing week, ideal base to explore northern Cornwall.”

    Mr Cozzani, August 2018

    • “The cottage was wonderful and the hosts were very helpfull. It was so central as a base for exploring Cornwell. So many extras and advice re walks, meals and photography of wild life. We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and little extras tea and biscuits on our arrival. Our stay couldn’t have been better.”

    Mrs Bell, 7197, July 2018

    • “Brilliant cottage is beautiful location could not wish for more. Very dog friendly area with some lovely walks from the farm.very close by access to the moor. The local pub is worth a visit as serves good ale and food and within walking distance. Just a Brilliant Holiday with easy access to north/south Cornwall. Will certainly be visiting again. Nicola, Cecil, Cheryl, Dave & Yogi & Ruma the dogs”

    Ms Clayson, DOVER, April 2018

    • “Had wonderful holiday in pleasant surroundings. Cottage had everything that we needed and the owners were very helpful and friendly. Good walking through the working farm and Bodmin moor with its ponies, sheep and other wildlife. Nice old village nearby with its village green surrounded by its houses, church, old school, post office and friendly public free house serving many real ales. Would we visit this area again?, yes defintely.”

    Mr Rampton, Dorchester, April 2018

Regional Information

BLISLAND Bodmin 5.7 miles; Wadebridge 8.4 miles; Polzeath 13.2 miles; Tintagel 13.8 miles; Padstow 16 miles; Fowey 17.2 miles. Situated under the western edge of granite-bound Bodmin Moor, the village of Blisland retains its age old character and is the only village in Cornwall to have a village green with trees. Around the green, cluster old houses and cottages, as well as the famous, award-winning Blisland Inn. The village is located less than three miles from the A30, and so provides an ideal central location for touring Cornwall. Nearby, Poley’s Bridge marks the beginning of the Camel Trail, a 17-mile long route, which follows a long disused old steam engine railway line to Padstow. The route is completely traffic-free and perfect for walkers and cyclists. You can even explore the trail on horseback and a purpose-built hide has been constructed between Wadebridge and Padstow, so even birdwatchers are catered for! Pull on your walking boots and explore Bodmin Moor, or venture to the coast with your buckets and spades and enjoy a day on one of the many beautiful beaches that stretch along Cornwall’s northern coastline. A fabulous part of the country for all!
