  • "Rose Cottage is a very nice cottage in a great location not to far away from the quay and town of Fowey"

    Yes the lack of recycling bags was a real issue for us particularly as there are no no public banks anywhere locally we had to bring it all back home which is not very good at all after a warm week Crockery available was minimal

  • "Cottage was clean and negative feedback in past proved unfounded now."

    Think cottage has been improved since previous bad reports. Clean and fresh looking. Double bed very comfy.

  • "The boiler instructions need clarifying they are not at all clear."

    Whilst the double bed is very comfortable, the single beds are anything but. Perhaps alright for children but certainly not for adults. Mattress toppers could be a solution,however, this area needs urgent attention.

  • "Lovely cottage, well situated, clean and comfortable."

    Great little patio which was lovely when the sun eventually came out. Only criticism is the lack of any facilities to recycle- no bags provided for kerbside recycling (many other nearby cottages provided these), meaning we had to drive to St Austell and queue up for 20 minutes to recycle - not encouraging green practices. As another reviewer stated, a mat inside the front door would be a helpful addition.

  • "Lovely and well kept cottage very comfortable The double bed was fantastic The mattresses in the twin room were less comfortable however The kitchen was very cozy the only thing to say is that the cooker looked a little tired and the baking trays too, maybe update the trays!"

    Also dishwasher looked very old it worked well though we just took pot luck on the settings The ring binder was a little messy maybe worth updating too Shame there was no welcome goody basket ! And no black bin bags aside from the one on the bin Also no inside front door mat maybe worth adding. Overall a lovely stay thanks!

  • "You will be aware we had the cause to call to report problems with our cottage."

    mainly the boiler that was broken, the toilet seat that was loose, the handle in the bedroom that came off clean in your hand and the damp. The plumber was excellent, and showed us how to re-pressurise the boiler (which we had to do twice a day). not once during our week stay wake up to hot water or heating, instead we had to get up to re-pressurise the boiler. these things happen, a full boiler replacement is likely required, however it is evident we are not the first people to experience this problem and therefore I am disappointed that it has been left when it could have been addressed without guests in the property. The idea of walls being knocked out during our stay was not an attractive one. I’m thankful the loo seat was replaced though. Sykes should be inspecting such properties. Its in a state of disrepair with paint coming off the walls and black mould from the damp. Whilst we had. great time in Fowey, and made good of the cottage, we are grateful to be home where we are slowly getting the mould smell out of our clothes. Sykes responded well to these problems when called

  • "It would be helpful to have move cleaning products that can be used during our stay."

    The property smelt very musty, it would have been nice to have had some air fresheners to cover this.

  • "The cottage was nice, however when we turned up the cottage had not been cleaned."

    The bed linen was dirty as were the towels and the bin had not been emptied so the cottage had a funny smell. I did call and ask for this to be rectified, and it was thankfully.

    We are so sorry that Rose Cottage was not cleaned when you arrived, we always strive to make sure our guests have an enjoyable stay from start to finish and can only apologise for this oversight which was due to an unfortunate miscommunication on bookings. Thankfully our caretaker was quick to rectify the problem and ensure the Cottage was comfortable and clean for your stay. We are glad you liked our cottage and hope to welcome you back in the future and will endeavour to make sure this doesn't happen again. Property Owner

  • "The location was amazing."

    The cottage was clean, comfortable and very cosy. The only criticisms we have are: 1. The WiFi connection was really bad, would recommend getting a better router or more high speed connection. “WiFi available” is not an accurate description. 2. There is NO PARKING, and the closest car park is up a big hill or on the other side of town. This should be more obvious before booking. 3. Although the rules are ‘No pets on furniture’, we found some fine dog hair on the sofa blankets, and my mother is allergic to fine dog hair, which was a bit of a problem. 4. The cottage needs to be aired when not in use as it smelt very musty when we arrived. The above is just for feedback - We had a very lovely holiday overall. Thank you!

  • "Lovely cottage in a convenient position for Fowey."

    Stairs to garden and steep stairs internally means you need to be fit and mobile (also steep walk to car park). Single beds better for kids than adults. It is a lovely cottage and we are seriously thinking of booking again. Thank you

About the location


Lostwithiel 8 miles; Polperro 8 miles

This small town and civil parish lies at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall. The estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour, which enabled the town to become an important trading centre. There is a wealth of things to see and do in and around the harbour. Whether you enjoy getting out on the water, playing golf or finding out more about the history of the area, you are sure to find something to suit the whole family. Harbour cruises leave the Town Quay regularly in season giving you a superb view of the town, but for the more adventurous, rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board and explore the waters for yourselves! The town is steeped in history, so why not join a guided tour of either Fowey or Polruan? You can even join an owl experience, play golf, go horse riding or pursue your artistic talents with pottery or painting courses. There is the aquarium, museum and St Catherine's Castle, as well as Readymoney Cove, all waiting to be explored. If you get peckish, or fancy something thirst quenching along the way, there is a plethora of pubs, inns, cafes and restaurants to choose. Whenever you plan to visit, keep a look out for the festivals, fairs, markets and theatre performances on throughout the year. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Discover them all from this fantastic base!
