“Very well equipped cottage very clean Car parking is a bit of a nightmare at times”
“Cottage was very nice, very welcoming, my only issue is the car parking situation!”
There was a cover over the paying machine, so we are expected to download an app and pay through this method! There is a fee to pay for yr weeks stay of £40.42 but you are not guaranteed a parking space, so you have to find another car park and pay again!! Be careful!!
“Parking charge was'nt mentioned, the carpark across the road was £50 for the week.”
However there was no spaces some days so not worth it. Ended up parking miles away on a daily basis.
“We were very pleased with the welcome pack, and impressed with the cottage, unfortunately it could have done with a dusting, also no logs were left for us to light the fire, as the radiator that end of the room didn’t work, also some of the cooking utensils and the frying pans were in need of a wash before they could be used.”
The beds were comfy and we had an enjoyable stay inspite of above.
“Excellent service from all the staff I spoke to, they were very patient when trying to explain any issues I may have had.”
They always got back to you very quickly. No fault found with Sykes. Excellent
“The Sykes office staff were excellent (I had a slight issue with having to correct a miss-entered date and it was smoothly dealt with).”
The paperwork and process to book were all perfect. My only other comments are a bit less positive: 1. No hairdryer 2. It's early winter and cold and the open fire was a drawer to booking the property. It seemed mean that there were only 4 logs and 2 firelighters...especially as the small print reads that 'fuel and power provided'. 3. No oven gloves 4. An observation....we had to bring a bedside lamp downstairs in order to switch the overhead lights off in the evenings. It would be nice if there was an extra lamp downstairs, therefore! Otherwise, a perfect and gorgeous cottage.
“Rather dissapointed with level of cleanliness in the kitchen .”
I felt I had to wash all utensils and cutlery before I used them Only 1 you let roll for 3 people ? Ironing board unusable . Oven very dirty
“Could have done with second set of keys, otherwise all brilliant”
“Very well organised administratively- everything flowed.”
A really lovely holiday indeed. Thank you.

About the location
St Ives 8 miles. Helicopter to Isles of Scilly - 30 minutes
Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbor. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
