  • "Penpoll was a lovely little cottage It had everything we needed beautifully ..."

    Penpoll was a lovely little cottage It had everything we needed beautifully furnished The weather unfortunately was raining most days, but it was December I would love to return in the summer when you could enjoy the outside area a lot more A much better place for summer Also the best pub/ restaurant was closed But the house was soo pretty

    We are pleased you enjoyed your stay! It really is a beautiful place during Spring and Summer, especially with the high tides and the wildlife! We hope to welcome you back in the better weather Property Owner

  • "What a nice little place-it could be!"

    It needs a lot of maintenance inside. The tabs are not fitting to the sinks, they are much to short. Washing your hands is quite a challenge! A lot of fittings are falling off-either the plastic shower linings, fittings in the hand wash sinks or other little bits. Everything is quite dusty-not to mention the windows from the inside, where spider webs had to be removed first! Cooking is a challenge because the cooker hood has never been cleaned-int seems. The frying pan should be thrown away because it’s totally scratched and the surface is coming off. Not to mention the fire alarm that started beeping because of empty batteries. I could go on and on but I’m stopping here. From the outside the house should be cleaned urgently, especially the windows. One thing really appealing is the location! Very nice. All in all we would not recommend this holiday home !

    Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed and surprised to hear your comments and would have liked to have had the opportunity to resolve any issues during your stay. Everything in the property is brand new, in regard to fittings etc. and we have also not had any issues with our cleaning team. We will look at the frying pan in view of replacing it, as usually checked at changeovers. You mentioned the fire / smoke alarm, which is hard-wired and does not operate on batteries, we can confirm this has recently been checked and found to be in good working order. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was well equipped and in a stunning location."

    We have no complaints other than the wife would have liked a plug socket near to a large mirror other than that excellent.

    We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. There is a double plug socket in the main bedroom where the dresser and large mirror are (where I usually do my hair :-) Sorry if you did not find this. Thanks again for leaving your feedback, it is appreciated. Kind regards, Michelle Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Penpoll, the cottage was absolutely superb and very well equipped, a real home from home."

    We loved the location right by the riverside and enjoyed peace and quiet by day and stargazing at night. Thank you too for the wonderful welcome hamper, it was such a lovely surprise and very much appreciated. The cottage was an ideal place to stay for visiting the stunning beaches, walking along and admiring the dramatic coastline and also visiting the local towns and markets. We were lucky enough to have lovely weather, so made the most of getting out and exploring along with some days spent on the beach. All in all one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in and we would definitely stay here again. Thank you to the owners for sharing their lovely cottage, we had a great time making memories with the family.

    Dear Claire and family We are so delighted you had a good time and pleased also you enjoyed fantastic weather! We hope to welcome you back again soon Kind regards Michelle Property Owner

    The house is very well-appointed and all the fixtures and fittings are class and quality. A really homely feel. Highly recommended!

    Thank you for your kind feedback- we are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to welcoming you back in the future Property Owner

  • "Given the cost of our holiday rental, a compensation of £50 when one of the two bathrooms was out of action for the majority of our holiday is miserly and derisory."

    We could have continued to use the shower but did not and reported it twice and it was not fixed while we were there. We were thoughtful guests and you have not treated us well. It is not our fault that Sykes didn’t take action promptly. We copied you in so they didn’t take advantage of you. We understand that problems arise but you need to ensure prompt action. That is your responsibility. You make a lot of money from these rentals.

  • "We stayed for a week at Penpoll cottage during the summer and we absolutely loved it!"

    Location is fabulous, as you have everything you need a short drive away. Loads of beaches to visit and lovely scenery for long walks. The cottage is at the end of a peaceful driveway and it has absolutely everything you might need. It was really clean and cozy, and a we really appreciated the welcome basket left for us. You are given all the information concerning the cottage, and excellent recommendations and suggestions from the owners. The creek at the back was one of our favourite things, as we spent most afternoons relaxing on the deck watching all the wildlife it brings. We will surely be coming back every summer for at least a week, that’s how much we loved it. Thank you so much for everything, Michelle!

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Alejandra and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to welcoming you all back again soon x Property Owner

  • "The house was very well equipped and spotlessly clean."

    Our first evening there was ruined by very loud people out on the deck next door. We contemplated leaving the next day, but luckily they left then and the rest of our week was peaceful, just what we needed. It was fascinating sitting outside watching the tidal creek changing, and the variety of birds who live there.

    Apologies if your break was marred but I’m glad the rest of your time was peaceful Thank you and hope to see you again Property Owner

    Just would like to mention to the owners that the front door is difficult to shut (expanded) maybe due to the weather.

    Many thanks for leaving your feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we would be thrilled to welcome you back. Sorry to hear about the front door - but appreciate you letting us know. We will arrange for that to be looked at ASAP. Property Owner

Those avid walkers can explore the magnificent Saints Way, an ancient walking trail leading from Padstow to Fowey, providing ample opportunity for a stroll along the creek and for birdwatching.
