  • "This is the most amazing property that we have ever stayed in through Sykescottages."

    Its a well thought out and planned purpose built property with all features being top quality (even down to the luxurious soft towels!!) The owner messaged before our stay to ask about our needs, any local groceries need, the configuration of the beds, even the temperature that we wanted in individual rooms. I cannot reccomend this property highly enough.

  • "Excellent, spacious modern eco-friendly property, well equipped and furnished."

    The beds are very comfy and a variety of bed linen was available. Kristin and Tom go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. The pre- arrival questions were a novelty for us but now I would urge all owners to embrace the concept if they truly want to offer a bespoke experience. We had a great time!!

  • "Zephyr is a great place to stay and deserves it high rating."

    Kristin and Tom have put a lot of time and effort into ensuring that guests have a wonderful holiday. The location is excellent and allows easy access to all of the places to visit within the South Cornwall area. It's easy to get to and is nicely just off the main road with good privacy and ample parking. The cottage is very clean and has all the amenities required to allow a nice stay. The kitchen is also extremely well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Thanks again for a wonderful holiday experience.

  • "Over the years we've stayed in quite a few cottages, as it's our preferred way to holiday."

    We have had maybe 1 or 2 places that were as good and pampering as this place, and even they didn't have the warm and caring personal touch we received feo Kristin and her partner! First - the property: in complete contrast to the standard - the photos really don't di it justice. It's huge compared to how it looks in the photos, very spacious. Second - level of equipment and attention to details: the place is equipped with every possible thing - some even better or more than what I have at home (example: I usually bring my own chef knifes, for example - no need here!). And lots of it, too! There's even tupperware, and meet thermometer, and whole lot of things. There was even a different color of towels for each guest (so they don't mix!). There are basic condiments in the property - and when I asked if there are other things, Kristin suggested to get all the spices I need and leave them in the cottage for us! Third - the care. Kristin went way above and beyond anything we could expect of a host. Starting with making sure to supply extras, through seeing we had a puncture one morning and staying in to see that we sort it out. She answered each question we had with great care and knowledge and gave lots of good recommendations. Thank you so much Kristin! And it's close to everything in South Cornwall. This is really a rare find! There was a tiny bit of noise one night from the nearby marine air base - a helicopter I believe; but it was quite OK.

  • "We had the most amazing stay at Zephyr and will definitely be returning!"

    As soon as we walked into the property we felt at home! The open plan kitchen/ dining/ lounge area is massive and full of natural light. The property is so well maintained and is the cleanest house we have ever stayed in! My children adored the large lawned garden and the upstairs lounge area which they made their ‘den’ for the week- they didn’t want to leave! There are many beautiful beaches nearby. Our favourites are Gunwalloe church cove, poldhu cove and Kennack sands. We also found some new hidden gems like cadgwith harbour with the cute little seafood shop and loe bar beach in between the sea and a lake. Kynance cove was also very scenic but extremely busy….. We did have an amazing meal at Ellie’s soul food at the top of the hill though which made it worth the visit! The kids also enjoyed a day at Flambards theme park which is only five minutes away. We cannot wait until our next holiday to this gorgeous house in the most beautiful area! Xx

    The owners have thought of every single thing and we wanted for nothing. Spotlessly clean. Large drive for multiple vehicles, hose and electric hook-up provided. Simply perfect.

  • "We loved our stay at Zephyr and couldn’t recommend the property enough, it was very clean, comfortable and well stocked!"

    The hosts are the loveliest and checked in regularly to make sure we didn’t need anything restocked or changed during our stay. Lovely outdoor area to enjoy the sunshine when it’s out, and the children loved having their own tv area to chill in upstairs. Thank you for thinking of all the small details and we will be sure to recommend your 5 star property to anyone looking to come visit Cornwall.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of Gweek in an idyllic hamlet, is Zephyr, a contemporary three-bedroom cottage, inviting six guests.

Enjoying far-reaching countryside views and a private multi-level garden, whilst offering a stylish open-plan living space, flexible sleeping arrangements, and a homely first-floor snug, the property delivers the ideal base for a family or group of friends looking to explore Southern Cornwall.

The property also benefits from being very family-friendly, with a range of infant and toddler supplies provided on request including a stairgate, highchair, and a cot.

Park up on the private driveway before entering the light flooded living space, ideal for using as your social hub, where you can prepare delicious meals, dine as a group, and relax upon the plush corner sofa with direct views out to the garden.

If you'd prefer to dine alfresco, head outdoors to take advantage of your peaceful surroundings, or on colder evenings, venture to the first floor where you'll find a dedicated snug area, ready to snuggle up and enjoy a film night.

As the night unfolds, select between one of three ground-floor bedrooms, all well-presented and offering ample storage, including a king-size with en-suite and two doubles (zip/links which can be arranged as twin or super-king-size), along with a ground-floor family bathroom.

If you can tear yourself away, you will find a good selection of amenities and attractions in nearby Gweek, where you can sample your favourite tipple at The Black Swan, enjoy hearty breakfasts at The Boatyard Café, dine at Moon Bay Chinese restaurant, embark on outdoor explorations with Immerse Outdoors, which include paddle boarding, kayaking, and canoeing along the Helford River, or visit the sweet animals at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary.

Continue onto Penrose, a National Trust site, where you can enjoy leisurely strolls whilst soaking up the gorgeous views, hire a bike to make your way around Loe Pool, enjoy sweet treats and light bites at the Lakeside Café, treat the little ones to an afternoon of fun at the playgrounds, skate park, or hop aboard a pedalo and cruise around the boating lake during the summer months, or participate in a park run.

Next stop is Porthleven, where you can tuck into fresh seafood with a view at Amélie or dine alfresco at Mussel Shoal, stroll along the harbour with an ice cream in hand from Nauti But Ice, embark on a boat trip to hook your catch of the day or spot the local marine life, enjoy a refreshing swim in the protected harbour, thrilling jums off the middle harbour wall at high tide, spend an afternoon at Porthleven Beach or hike along the stunning Porthleven Cliffs.

You can continue the beach-side fun at the popular beaches of Porthcew and Polurrian Beaches, as well as Church Cove, well-known for its appearance on the hit TV series, Poldark, where you will also find the Dan Joel Surf School, a great selection of cafes, facilities, family-friendly streams, and an ideal spot for enjoying grilled delights on a portable barbecue as the sun sets.

Zephyr's location as the entry point to the Lizard Peninsula, the southerly tip of mainland Britain, means that you can easily access the area's magnificent cliff scenery, uncommon wildflowers, and fascinating coastal history on foot.

Be drawn to Kynance Cove, with its sandy beach and islets of serpentine stone, attracting a wealth of visitors since Victorian times.

Your new home from home is ideally located for taking day trips to Cornwall’s most popular attractions, from the beautiful St Michael’s Mount in Marazion, the Eden Project near St Austell, the stunning shores of Carbis Bay, Zennor and the landmark Lands End in Sennen.

To experience the best of Cornwall, look no further than Zephyr.
