  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the property was fantastic, in a great location."

    There was a vast array of toys which the children loved playing with, too. We were made up of 3 couples and 4 children and there was more than enough space. I would highly recommend staying here!

  • "Absolutely superb stay."

    Thoroughly recommend - what a lovely house, with all the amenities we could have asked for. It would be helpful to add some instructions for the fire (which direction to open the vent) and some more heating downstairs would have been nice as even though we turned up the thermostat, we couldn’t get the underfloor heating to work. We weren’t put off by this though and didn’t call for help so I haven’t adjusted the rating because you did all you could with the knowledge you had! Thank you for a spectacular stay x

  • "A modern fabulous large home very comfortable and well equipped."

    Beds, bedding towels etc top quality, lovely welcome pack, nice touch having toiletries in bathrooms, prompt response from Karen answering our queries. Millbrook is in a lovely village with loads of amenities, places to eat, drink and shop. Places to walk play area for children, great area to explore Cornwall. We would love to return. Just a little suggestion mainly to sykes, properties could have a snagging book for us to pop things in such as light bulbs need replacing, anything loose, broken, something needed all that owners wouldn't know about and not needed to put down for every one to see.

  • "The house perfectly suited 3 generations of our family."

    There was plenty of space and enough seating in the lounge and the dining room. Having a snug was ideal for anyone who wanted to get away for a moment. It would have been useful to have some bigger saucepans in the kitchen because of the size of the family. There were quite a number of light bulbs that weren't working, a problem that was highlighted back in July and which hadn't been sorted. The ensuite to the master bathroom had one light not working and in a black tiled room was a bit of a problem and the fan in the family bathroom wasn't working which meant there was a lot of condensation. The house needs a bit of TLC which is a shame as it's a beautiful building. Having said that we really enjoyed our stay.

  • "We have just spent a week at Iroko and thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The house is spacious with large comfortable rooms. There was a lovely welcome pack on our arrival with scones, cream and jam and was enjoyed sitting in the sun on the decking with a coffee. My grandaughter played with the toys that were in the dining area and loved the bubble chair. Good showers in the bathrooms, comfy beds and loads of towels provided and there was also a washer and tumble dryer to use. It's a small village location with excellent chip shop a couple of convenience stores and a small number of other little shops and two pubs only a couple of minutes walk away. A good base for Plymouth, via ferry and East Cornwall. We visited Downderry, Looe and Fowey which are not far away, and Mount Edgecombe is worth a visit. Would definitely recommend for large families.

  • "Lovely house in a great, quiet location - was perfect for our 3 generation holiday from 3 years old to 69!"

    House layout was good for family use with plenty of space, lots of toys and easy parking for 4 cars! Great outside space with garden furniture to relax in after a day on the beach! Owner was only a phone call away - friendly and helpful if needed.Supermarkets only a 3 minute walk with a friendly pub on the way and a lovely fish and chip shop! Beaches 1.5+ miles away (need to drive to beach car parks) were the best we have seen in this country. Rock pools, flat sand, quiet coves - each with life guard presence. Plymouth, ferries, aquarium all made for a very enjoyable, memorable family holiday.

  • "No problems with the property other than the room with the two bunk beds had no space at all for any clothing or personal accessories."

    Both of our children finished up sleeping downstairs purely due to lack of space.

  • "Whilst the house is nice, the standard of upkeep leaves al lot to be desired and let's it down."

    We found the Sykes cleaning checklist which, if what is being used, explains why it is what it is. The walls are all heavily marked, property looks dated from its pictures, lots of bulbs and lights didn't work, fan in bathroom didn't work, and the cleanliness left a lot to be desired, with flies and cobwebs everywhere in easy to access places and dirt down sides of beds etc. The owners need to take back control and give the property a week's deep clean and re-paint, and fix all the bits that need fixing. The outside area was covered in debris, and needed a good sweep and tidy. It's a real shame as could be lovely. Also, Millbrook itself has little to offer as many places closed down, however other local villages are nice.

  • "It is a great property."

    Service of Karen is good. But the owner has to look after. A lot of things are broken or dirty. Lamps came out of their seats in the ceiling and are broken, the pans are unusable, water was leaking from the ceiling in the living room, spiders all over when we entered the house. Milbrook is a nice village with great pubs. We met a lof of gentle people.

  • "The property was absolutely stunning and looked just like the photos on arrival."

    The garden was a tranquil paradise, especially if you get lucky with the weather. The location, and amenities in the area were extremely convenient. There was a slight issue with heating which was resolved after some googling, but the property manager arrived promptly the next day to ensure everything was as expected. Everyone within our group thoroughly enjoyed their stay, while the little touches on arrival, such as a stocked fridge and wood for the fire presented a professional touch. Finally I have to say a huge thank you to Karen who helped us with various pre wedding recommendations due to last minute cancellations. Overall, the property and the property manager were 5 star across the board. Highly recommended, in a beautiful village and location in Cornwall.

  • "We were a party of 8 adults (2 families) and stayed for 4 nights."

    We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely like to return again in the future. It was a very nice, modern, spacious house, which was very well equipped and immaculate. The only thing that the men in the party complained about was that there were no pint glasses so their beer didn't taste quite the same in a tumbler or wine glass! We would definitely recommend this property. We felt very lucky to have been able to book this place at very short notice. It was convenient to have the shops and pub close by. We did walk to Cawsands and Kingsand (it's not that far but it's a bit hilly). We also visited Whitsand Bay, Looe, Fowey and caught the ferry from Cawsands to Plymouth. Also caught the bus from Plymouth back to Millbrook, the bus stop is just around the corner. So there are plenty of places to visit. We just wish we could have stayed longer.

About the location


Whitsand Bay 1 mile; Plymouth 8 miles.

Set in a bowl of hills at the head of a tidal creek that leads to the Hamoaze, opposite the great naval city of Plymouth, Millbrook is located on the Rame Peninsula, "Cornwall's Forgotten Corner". Bounded by the Lynher and Tamar rivers, the Hamoaze and the sea, the area is deeply rural and designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a good range of shops and pubs, while close by are the pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, from which a ferry will take you to Plymouth. Along the southern edges of the peninsula are miles of beautiful walks with glorious views of Rame Head. Just a mile south of Millbrook lies Whitsand Bay with its miles of uncrowded sandy RNLI patrolled beach and dramatic cliffs. A superb base for discovering the wild side of Cornwall.

Note: The driveway is shared access with neighbour.
