The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

When you book a south west Cornwall cottage, wonderful images spring to mind. Rocky coves and soft-sand beaches. Exotic flora and wild, unspoilt countryside. Sleepy villages oozing atmsophere. Intriguing ancient relics and fantastic outdoor activities...
The Land's End Peninsula is a world-class holiday destination, much of which was once an island, bestowing the region with a unique character quite different from the rest of the county.
Explore a seemingly endless coastline, dotted with enchanting fishing villages clinging to cliffs and beaches to take your breath away. For endless ocean vistas, head for Cape Cornwall or Land's End. Get creative in St. Ives, where winding, cobbled lanes are crammed with studios, galleries, stylish shops and inviting eateries. Overlooking the fairytale castle of St. Michael's Mount, Penzance features a magnificent prom, fine architecture and a wealth of attractions. And Mousehole was described by Dylan Thomas as the 'loveliest village in England'
Unravel the myths and legends of historic remains, from Neolithic burial chambers to Bronze Age stone circles - in and around the village of Zennor is a good place to start, and do also look out for the Iron Age villages of Chysauster and Carn Euny.
Expect exhilarating walking and cycling along coastal paths and moorland trails. Superb surfing (try Sennen Cove) and other water sports. Bird-watching, golf, fishing, riding and so much more. Otherwise, take your pick from a host of sensational sandy beaches like Porthcurno, Praa Sands and Kynance Cove.
All in all, a cottage in south west Cornwall offers the perfect ingredients for an unforgettable holiday.
