The Property

This detached bungalow is in an enviable position in the thriving Cornish village of Tywardreath, set on a hill with fabulous views across the landscape towards St. Austell Bay. From the private deck in the pretty cottage garden at the rear, there are magnificent distant sea views of the sun sparkling on the water. This Cornwall cottage offers ideal family accommodation, in a quiet residential cul-de-sac with no passing traffic and an enclosed rear garden. The interior of this Cornwall cottage is comfortably furnished, with a sitting room and dining area, a fully fitted modern kitchen, and two double bedrooms plus a family bathroom. The village is a short stroll from this Cornwall cottage, with cosy pubs and shops selling some local produce. Par Sands is less than a mile from this cottage in Cornwall and can be reached either by car or on foot across the fields. It is a large safe and sandy beach, and the walk to Polkerris Beach from here is fabulous, while for the more dedicated walker, the continuation of the walk around Gribbin Head and on into Fowey passes some spectacular coastline and wonderful secluded coves and beaches.

The cottage was well placed and so well equipped. So much information on what to do, where to go, best ever collection of information.

Miss Neal, Loughborough, September 2013

The holiday overall was excellent, the weather was fantastic, we met the owner and he was very pleasant and helpful. The accommodation was good, very clean and bright and the furnishings were to a good standard and comfortable. We will definitely use Sykes cottages again as we will be going away again in August/September.
