“We had a lovely week in the cottage which we found to be exceptionally clean, with plenty of towels (not just the bare minimum which we have found in other cottages.”

The location of the cottage is quite good being only a couple of minutes drive from Bude which is our favourite cornish town. There is a dishwasher which we didn’t use but would have preferred a washing machine. But all in all, we loved the cottage and out of interest we would love to know how old it actually is? We guess about 350 years old? Lovely 2ft thick walls-fascinating!

“Very pretty cottage and small private courtyard garden.”

Exceptionally clean throughout. Able to walk to the beach within 20 minutes but be aware a short section of the road from the cottage is without a footpath and can be busy at rush hour times. Local pub serves delicious food but you may need to book a table.

“Lovely cottage, clean and well equipped.”

Lovely garden to sit out in. A one minute stroll to a lovely village pub which served good food and welcomed dogs.

“The cottage had clearly been recently refurbished to a high standard, and very sympathetically.”

Spotlessly clean. Perfectly situated next to a great village Pub. Off road parking, and a lovely secluded garden to boot! Can’t fault the place. Well worth every penny. A beautiful piece of Cornish history.

“It would be great to have a washing machine!”

The location is very convenient for exploring beyond Bude. We visited Clovelly, Port Isaac, Widemouth Bay and Padstow for example. Perfect for my husband and i and our dog. There was confusion over the check in time which was originally communicated as 3pm but we were told 4pm on the day of arrival. As check out is 10 am i would have expected an earlier check in time anyway. The information book in the Cottage also states 11 am departure time and 3 pm check-in time so there does seem to be a miscommunication between the owner and Sykes Cottages which can be easily remedied by both parties. Other than that we would return.

“The cottage was neat and cosy.”

The dogs loved it too. We know the area well, it was easy access to drive to dog friendly beaches and coastal walks, supermarkets too. The weather was mixed so we did not use the well kept pretty garden much, but it had a lovely view and comfy chairs if needed. TV screens were huge and all options worked well. We had a few comments for housekeeper who answered text promptly. Washing machine could have helped if you could squeeze it in! Thanks!
