This month, our focus here at Sykes Cottages is to get out and #DiscoverCornwall in all its glory. To celebrate, we’re bringing you an exciting competition…


We’re looking for the most quintessentially Cornish photograph, the ultimate image that captures the true essence of Cornwall.  A shot from visiting an iconic spot, tucking into a Cornish cream tea, exploring a hidden gem, riding a wave, or something completely different – how you interpret the brief is up to you, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box with this one! We want you to get snapping and share your best photo with us.

Join us in celebrating Cornwall by entering the #DiscoverCornwall photograph competition. There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs and entering is easy!

The Prizes…

At the end of the month, we’ll be picking one lucky winner who’ll receive our amazing prize bundle:
– a £250 Sykes holiday voucher
– a weekend Family Ticket to Cornwall’s Rock Oyster Festival (July 7th-8th), celebrating music, art, and amazing food, including the famous local oysters
– a hamper of Smuggler’s Brew blend goodies from the tea-lightful folk at Cornish Tea
– a bespoke deluxe shellfish toolkit and a family crabbing kit from Down the Cove, the number one Cornish authority on the best ways of sourcing, preparing and enjoying seafood
a pizza meal for two at any Stable restaurant, complete with two of their signature Cider Boards on the house

What more could you possibly ask for?
