  • "The flat was immaculate and the facilities excellent and the beds so comfortable ."

    Well located for attractions such Eden Project , Lost Gardens of Heligan etc and Tintagel Castle not too far. The harbour is a lovely place to relax and a 20 min walk to the apartments but quite a hill if you have anyone with mobility problems. We were on the second floor, so had a balcony which was lovely to sit out on .The photo and description on the website said that it overlooked the countryside, when if fact the first thing you see is the apartments car park if you are at the front and over the wall is the main road and the trees and a field behind the road!!! This was not mentioned in the description unfortunately, we probably wouldn't have stayed there if we had known that . The photo was taken in the dark from the balcony so you couldn't see the car park or the road, at times it was very noisy and could possibly increase during the holiday season. It was a disappointment but we still had a lovely time and couldn't fault the accommodation but doubt we will return due to that issue.

    The facilties were as described and surpassed our expectations. We had a problem with seasonal flies on the balcony which was resolved by the owner and sykes. It is worth noting that for the less mobile the walk back to tyack from the harbour is a little steep.

    Thank you for your feedback and thank you for your patience with the external flies that you mentioned. So sorry that the balcony was out of action during your stay. An unusual occurrence this year, exacerbated by the hot summer. Property Owner

  • "Wonderful apartment, perfectly placed within close proximity of Charlestown, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan."

    Had a wonderful stay. Beds comfy, kitchen well equipped, two bathrooms an added bonus. One gripe - the fan in the ensuite bathroom clattered in the wind - all night - so we had to move into the the twin bedded room. No problem to us but would have been a real pain (and not sure what we would have done to solve it) if there had been four of us staying! Think it needs looking at/sorting out. The balcony was also unusable due to the swarms of tiny brown flies every afternoon. Not sure what they were (never seen them before) but there were MILLIONS of them!

    Thank you for your feedback. We have silenced the non-return flap in the ensuite extractor fan so thank you for mentioning that so we could address it. We consulted professionals about the external flies. As the weather has cooled the flies seem to have now disappeared. Sincere apologies that the balcony was out of action during your stay.

    It is in such an ideal location and we were blessed with wonderful weather the whole week. It was just lovely to get away despite this unprecedented time with Coronavirus. Becasue we knew the apartment well, we were confident we would be safe there. We enjoyed exploring the countryside which gave us Covid security, however if you like bars, coffee houses and restaurants, Charlestown has them all. Infact for the first time since we started going , "pop up" restaurants and bars have opened right on the quay side next to the tall ships, and in the evening with the string lights up it looked really atmospheric. We hope that this will continue when things hopefully get back to normal. We couldn't recommend Tyack highly enough, although we would really like to keep it as our own little secret!
