  • "Our stay at Oyster cottage was perfect."

    Location was ideal as our son lives in Penryn. The cottage was amazing. Spotlessly clean and really comfortable. The milk, tea, coffee and biscuits were a nice added extra. We slept really well in the comfortable beds and lounge furniture was really comfy too. Love the facilties on site and grounds are maintained to a really high standard. We will definately be back.

  • "Great value for money."

    Very clean and spacious and up to date with the maintenance of the cottage as nothing was outdated about the property. Really well furnished down to the finer details which included plenty of boardgames for families, a pint of milk was waiting in the fridge along with tea/coffee and biscuits! We were visiting family in Cornwall and would definitely book back here again.

  • "This far exceeded our expectations."

    Location is absolutely amazing. Grounds and gardens are impeccable. Staff so friendly and helpful in the pub which was fantastic with beautiful views and food. Cottage itself very comfortable with everything we needed. It had a lovely feeling and everything was just perfect. We hadnt realised the cottage was in a purpose built park which was a lovely surprise, loved it here and will 100% be back to oyster cottage. Thank you.

  • "Loved the layout of the cottage, with the open-planned kitchen/living room."

    Parking was ideal (virtually outside the back door). Lampshade in second bedroom was very dusty, but everything else was great. Very comfortable living. Hope to visit again soon!

  • "It was our second visit to this property, and we loved it just the same."

    Ideal location for walks on the coastal path, We walked to the beach (15 min) most afternoons after a full day out, for a swim and there was loads of water sports and equipment hire right on the beach. The cottage itself has a lovely sunny outdoor area for evening bbqs and equipped with everything you could need. Loved it and we will be back

  • "Location was brilliant but the cottage however was lacking."

    2 single beds were very small and teenage son struggled to sleep all week. Pillows on beds were flat as pancakes and duvet cover on double bed had a rip in it. Although kitchen was well equipped, certain items need to be replaced... chipped cups, chopping boards, glasses missing. The BBQ had not been cleaned out by previous guests and was mouldy... spent time cleaning it before being able to use it. Carpets need replacing on landing, very stained. Generally cleanliness was an issue, dust on stairs, skirting boards and bathroom cabinet. Cottage is tired and needs a bit of a revamp. Used Sykes on numerous times before and was very happy with our accommodation but this time felt it was not up to standards I would expect. Spent far less money on previous rentals and accommodation was far better... disappointing. Would stay at location again but would choose another cottage.

    Thank you for your feedback - it’s always helpful to be made aware of any issues. We have replaced the chipped crockery and missing glasses. Unfortunately, some guests are less careful than others so we constantly deal with a wide range of problems. The ripped duvet cover issue has been reported to the house keeping company we use. The beds in the twin room are 3ft, which is the standard size of a single. Mattresses are always contentious so we have recently replaced these with a medium firm double and the singles are medium soft. In an effort to cope with wide ranging views on pillows we offer pillows in a variety of thicknesses. We are glad that you enjoyed the location and we would welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "Oyster cottage was clean and well-equipped."

    Being at the further end of the complex and in one of the side roads meant it was quiet. There was milk and biscuits as a welcome. Good sized rooms, lots of lovely pictures to look at and a comfortable bed. I couldn't use the patio as Cornwall was rather wet in the last week of September. I didn't use the facilities at Pendra Loweth (so can't comment on them) but enjoyed a walk around the site with its gardens and stream. The owner contacted me during the week to make sure everything was okay which was a nice touch. Being middle of terrace it was warm though I did need heating for one day (residue of a hurricane across the ocean) and would have liked more detailed instructions on using the storage heaters - how the dials work etc (never having come across them before). Also I wasn't so keen on the narrow, twisting access road to the site but got used to it after a couple of runs. All-in-all a good place to stay.

  • "The cottage was splendid we all found it so comfortable, the surroundings were very peaceful."

    The fact that it was only a couple of miles from Falmouth town centre also a bonus. The kitchen had all the equipment that was required to cook various meals whIch we made use of most days. All in all a brilliant holiday made even better by a comfy bed to sleep in at the end of the day. Thank you. Judy Reims.

  • "We had a great week in Oyster Cottage."

    Superb facilities and excellent location for exploring and making memories. The house was clean and tidy and had everything we could need. We were given a pint of milk on arrival and there was tea / coffee and Cornish shortbread which was such a lovely gesture. The owner contacted us during our stay to check it was satisfactory and gave us some recommendations and chance to ask questions. Couldn’t recommend it enough. Such a pretty location and perfect for our needs. Thank you.

    The only fly in the ointment was the bed, it would have been better if it was a king size and a more comfortable mattress, my husband slept well but I found it difficult to sleep.

We liked the private area with table and chairs outside the patio doors. All in all an excellent holiday in a very pleasant comfortable cottage.

    The single beds could not be slept in due to bad mattress. This was both beds. Not acceptable if more then two people.

The property

Set within Pendra Loweth holiday village, this two bedroom terraced cottage is just a short drive from buzzing Falmouth.

With a plunge pool, spa pool, tennis courts and children's play area, this resort offers couples and families a great value option from which to explore Falmouth and its coast path and beaches.

Oyster Cottage is a comfortable holiday home with fresh, neutral décor and modern fittings and furnishings.

On the ground floor is an open plan living room and kitchen with dining space as well as a handy cloakroom.

French doors lead to a private south-facing patio with garden furniture and barbecue.

Head upstairs to two bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Just a mile away is Maenporth Beach which has a beach cafe, kayak and paddle board hire and a wonderful restaurant overlooking the sand and sea.

North Helford and Falmouth are perhaps the quintessential Cornish visitor destinations; a mix of beach, creek and woodland serve some of our most interesting and historic villages and towns.

Soak up Falmouth's nautical vibe with a visit to the National Maritime Museum, amble along its narrow streets lined with shops, galleries, pubs, restaurants or hop on a boat trip across the River Fal, up the river towards Truro or on the Helford River to its sub-tropical gardens.

Oyster Cottage is perfect for a family looking for a traditional holiday in this seaside resort and wonderful at any time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
