  • "Firstly thank you to the owner for sharing their property."

    The cottage was extremely comfortable and was a perfect base for us during our week's holiday. Things to note which would help those who stay in the future: 1. put a mop or long handled water wiper in the downstairs bathroom. When using the shower the water would spray onto the bathroom floor and make it wet to stand on. This would save using towels to dry the floor. 2. I found it difficult to lock the front door from the outside, it was OK locking it from the inside. We used the back door the majority of the week. 3. No matches for the log burner. 4. No food container for scraps although this was stated in the house folder.

  • "A lovely cottage that just needs a little tlc, broken tap in the downstairs bathroom, loose toilet seat, broken towel rail in the upstairs en suite, unfortunately the out house was full of rubbish and broken glass so we couldn't recycle."

    The weather was lovely whilst we were there but we could not use the garden as it was all over grown and the table and chairs were rotten. The Blue Anchor pub which is directly opposite the cottage was great, we parked two cars on their car park and ate there twice, their gluten free offers were brilliant.

  • "Beautiful and comfortable cottage."

    Thoughtfully planned layout - exceptionally comfortable beds. A perfect location to access some remarkable beaches. Highly recommended.

  • "Cottage was lovely and had all the facilities we could wish for and need."

    The little additions of tea, coffee and sugar etc were a nice little treat. Clean, tidy and well presented. Comfy beds and decent showers! I didn’t see anywhere in the description about the low ceilings downstairs, although we were expecting them to be low one of our family members is quite tall and did have to duck. There was a strong damp smell downstairs and although there was nothing upstairs, it was a concern having a toddler with us. Talking of toddlers, the baby gate at the top of the stairs was great, but as there is no living room door there was no way of stopping her getting upstairs. It would be great to have a stair gate available even as a pressure fit for the bottom of the stairs.

  • "The property was lovely and all the little touches such as tea, coffee, milk, wine, smellies etc were thoughtful and appreciated."

    I was extremely disappointed that the Wi-Fi didn’t work and that I spent so much of my holiday on the phone trying to sort it out. I had a call to say it was working again but when we got back to the cottage it wasn’t. This meant I had to call to let you know and resulted in many follow up calls. It doesn’t feel much like a holiday when you are trying to fix someone else’s Wi-Fi! The cottage itself was lovely and I would love to return once Wi-Fi issues have been resolved and we could enjoy the movie night in-front of the fire that my children really looked forward to.

    We really enjoyed our week and would like to stay again. Our daughters said they found their beds so comfortable. The bathrooms were lovely too. Thank you for renting your cottage to us.

    The rooms were clean, the lounge very cozy. Bathroom . . . amazing. Kitchen lovely. Garden very pretty. I would definitely come back. Location, so central, probably the best to see all magical places in Cornwall. I must say big thank you. Stanislava Hing

    Pictures cannot do justice to this lovely old place which has been renovated to a very high standard and yet retains all its charm and heritage. Highly recommended...

  • "We had such a lovely stay at Blue Anchor, the location was really great for driving to lots of the local spots, and we also got the bus to a few places as there was a bus stop right outside the cottage."

    Would definitely come back!

  • "We have a really nice stay."

    The cottage is well equipped and has plenty of space. The low ceiling and door ways catch you by surprise if your 6ft like me. The location is great, it doesn’t take long to get anywhere from there. We had good weather so we’re able to make use of the garden with our 3 year old. The bbq is a great addition. We would book again if we are coming to Cornwall.

    The owner exceeded our expectations as the cottage accommodated for everything you could possibly need. Beautiful cottage in a very picturesque setting. Please make sure you look in the drawer cabinet situated under the tv in the living room as it contains leaflets about days out etc!

    The cottage is beautiful and very homely. The only criticism I have is that the road the cottage is on, is extremely busy and noisy. We actually slept in the back room to avoid the noise.

  • "Sykes were incredibly helpful when I had initially booked accomodation that wasn't suited to our family and did everything they could to cancel the initial booking successfully."

    This allowed me to book a different cottage which suited our needs better and the deposit was transferred to our new booking which we were very thankful for. We have just returned from our break in Cornwall and we were delighted. The cottage was beautiful, clean and cosy...exactly what we wanted. Log burners with a plentiful free supply of logs kept us warm after a day in the water. We would definately return.

  • "Quaint and charming cottage."

    We felt totally relaxed and at home there. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable. We enjoyed a lovely barbecue in the garden - that was fab! We had a truly memorable time at Blue Anchor; couldn't have asked for anything better. We left completely re-energised. Would recommend this exceptional cottage without hesitation!

  • "This lovely quirky spacious bright cottage has been lovingly and tastefully restored, with many home comforts particularly the welcoming lounge with comfortable sofas and a wonderful log burner (which we needed every evening as weather cold!"

    ), beds were very comfortable and bathrooms large. Unfortunately due to the weather didn't get to use the BBQ or sit out in the peaceful back garden. The cottage was very close to the stunning North coast of Cornwall with their beautiful sandy bays and also not far to Truro and the South. I would definitely recommend this cosy cottage and would stay in it again if in that part of Cornwall.

The property

Indian Queens 0.6 miles.

Set in the quiet rural village of Fraddon, in the heart of Cornwall, is this delightful stone cottage.

Blue Anchor provides a welcoming accommodation, with high-quality furnishings to ensure you get that home-from-home feel as soon as you walk through the door.

Opening to a spacious lounge, with two large sofas, perfect for curling up of an evening while catching up with your favourite shows on the wall-mounted TV, also benefitting from a stone inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove for that added extra warmth during those winter months.

The dining area also has a woodburning stove, giving the room a warm ambience, while six people can gather around the dining table for a family dinner.

The kitchen is wonderfully appointed to the rear of the cottage, with all contemporary appliances on-hand to help you cook up a storm for the whole family.

A family shower room completes the ground floor.

As the day draws to a close, follow the steps up to the first floor, offering three bedrooms: one king-size, one double and one twin, the master boasting an en-suite bathroom, where you can retreat to a warming bath tub for a relaxing soak with a well-deserved glass of wine.

To the rear of the property, there is a lawned garden and gravelled area with furniture provided.

Why not whip up some summer treats on the Weber style drum BBQ while sun sets, relaxing with a cold drink, and let your little ones run freely in the enclosed space.

While you’re in the area, why not take a drive to the bustling town of Newquay?

With its picturesque sandy beaches and nearby cafés for a spot of lunch, plus the wonderful Pirate’s Quest attraction, featuring actors, special effects and elaborate sets which your little ones will delight in.

Or visit a variety of historic mansions, including the 16th century manor house Trerice, offering period furnishings and a formal Tudor garden.

Blue Anchor is the perfect choice for a remote country retreat with your family.
