    • “What a beautiful, stylish home. We’ve had a fabulous week. The owners have thought of every convenience and their styling reflects their artistic backgrounds - it’s really lovely. Dog friendly and situated close to many of cornwall’s best beeches - perfect”

    Sarah H, Macclesfield, United Kingdom, July 2018

    • “It was a lovely cottage which was very comfortable to come back to after days of exploring. The little things really made a difference like milk already in the fridge for us for when we arrived and some lovely biscuits on the side to welcome us :) blankets on hand for those cosy nights snuggling in on the sofa. Even having a washing machine there was a god send ! Very happy with our stay thank you :)”

    Miss French, Mansfield, January 2019

    • “First time using Sykes so I don’t know if the standard is the same for all cottages but Grandpa Dickson was seriously well equipped. Didn’t have to use any of the things I’d taken ‘just in case’”

    Ms Perry, Weston-super-Mare, October 2018

    • “really nice location which was great for getting to all attractions. Place was well equipped and had everything we needed. Our one complaint was that it was not the cleanest in places, there was collections of dust under the beds and dining tables which wasn't great considering the rental charge”

    Mr Morris, Coventry, September 2018

    • “The property is fantastic, however in the write up it states’’ hop,skip and a jump from the saints way, camel trail etc’’ what it doesn’t mention is that you need to navigate a very busy, narrow road with no pavement to reach it? I wouldn’t advise walking down there with dogs or children and feel this should be highlighted in the details. Also some general maintenance on the decking is required as some of the wood is rotting particularly near the gate. *************************************************************************************************************** Owner response : I have been in touch with Sykes and I have amended the description of our property due to your feedback. I am glad you thought the property was fantastic.”

    Mrs Graham, Ilminster, June 2018

    • “Lovely holiday home in a really nice spot. Will be booming again next year”

    Mr Purves, STOCKPORT, June 2018

    • “Grandpa Dickson's 976316 was an excellent base for our 1 week holiday in Cornwall, Little Petherick is a lovely little village and is only a short distance to Padstow Harbour. The accommodation was excellent and very comfortable, with lovely rural views to the rear from a large decking area with seating, ideal for that relaxing drink in the evening. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would absolutely recommend Grandpa Dickson's for your Holiday Stay. Terry Harris”

    Mr Harris, Warwick, May 2018

    • “Perfect holiday chalet,tastefully decorated and in a central position accessible to local bays and Padstow and Wadebridge. Would have no hesitation in recommending it as a holiday chalet.”

    Mrs Kindell, Nottingham, May 2018

    • “The cottage is decorated to a high standard loads of space and brilliant location to explore Cornwall.”

    Mr Sowden, HUNTINGDON, May 2018

Regional Information

LITTLE PETHERICK Padstow 2.5 miles; Wadebridge 4.5 miles. Set in a wooded valley at the head of a tidal creek running up from the Camel Estuary, this tiny hamlet of Cornish stone houses exudes peace and tranquillity. The beautiful countryside around Little Petherick is criss-crossed with a network of local footpaths, amazing gardens and stately homes to explore, and the Saint’s Way Trail passes through the hamlet offering an off-road walk into Padstow. Padstow is a charming working fishing port with colourful harbour surrounded by glorious sandy beaches is at the head of the Camel River. Watching the everyday ebb and flow of harbour life is a perfect way to spend a day. This foodie destination with popular eateries from Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth is the start and end point for the Camel Cycle Trail and a good base for watersports. Nearby, Wadebridge is a bustling market town perfectly placed alongside the ebb and flow of the River Camel. The town hosts an array of excellent shops, pubs and restaurants and is home to North Cornwall's only family-owned cinema. The excellent surfing beaches of Harlyn and Constantine are ideal for safe family fun, and Constatine Bay is also home to a golf course, just a few miles away, while a passenger ferry across the river from Padstow to Rock takes you to the beach at Daymer Bay. Just around the corner toward Pentire Head is the surfing paradise at Polzeath, and when the beach no longer calls, there’s a golf course nearby, several stately homes and gardens to visit and the Camel Trail to walk or cycle. Also the fabulous Eden Project is just fifteen miles away.
