    This was our first holiday arranged through Sykes Cottages so we were a little apprehensive about it.Any doubts were soon erased on arrival at Walden Pond.The cottage was great,as described and so quiet and peaceful.Perhaps it's best feature is it's location.It is perfect for getting out and visiting places.During our stay we explored Par and some of the coastal walks.We also went to Fowey,Looe,Polperro,Newquay and the lovely Padstow.We also spent full days at the incredible Eden Project and the wonderful Lost Gardens Of Heligan. The only problem we had was that the TV's freeview signal was poor probably due to high trees.This restricted the channels we could watch.A bit of a nuisance but not a deal breaker.We left a note for the owners so hopefully this will be sorted out soon. Overall we had a great time and based on this holiday we are looking forward to our next holiday with Sykes Cottages later in the year.

About the location

PAR

Fowey 4 miles; Charlestown 4 miles; St. Austell 5 miles.

Par village is located on the South Cornwall coast offering a sandy family and dog-friendly beach (dogs allowed all year round) on St. Austell Bay. The village is only 2.5 miles away from the internationally renowned Eden Project, which can be reached on foot through the leafy green Luxulyan Valley. Between Par and the picturesque harbour of Fowey, is the Gribbin Peninsula, which has magnificent views of the surrounding coastline and makes for an excellent walk. Close to Par are many places connected to the author Daphne du Maurier, including the small cove at Polkerris which boasts the Rashleigh Arms and which takes its name from a local landowner whose house was frequented by the author. There are many attractions in the area including the China Clay Country Park, Charlestown Shipwreck Museum and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. A fabulous location to explore the rich heritage and magnificent coastline of South Cornwall.
