  • "What a lovely place !"

    Warm, comfortable, and plenty of room. All the comforts you require and each bedroom set up for individual needs. Stayed for a week , could have stayed for a month comfortably. Will definitely be back. Truro 15 mins away, lovely garden centre just down the road that serve great snacks and meals. Ideal for Edon project, Flambards, National Trust, Screech Owl Sanctury and many others. Michelle was there for our arrival and made sure we got settled in , she’s an absolute gem.

  • "Birch Lodge is set in an ideal position and setting."

    It has everything supplied inside to be able to settle straight into the holiday mode. Very clean and comfortable and the site is managed by the very attentive Michelle. Not an easy place to find, but once you know your way around its idealy located for Truro town and Truro train station which makes travelling to Falmouth or St Ives a doddle.

  • "The property was perfect for the less abled."

    Michelle was incredible, she arranged lifters for the furniture, asked we if needed seating for the wet room and generally went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed. This is an ideal venue for parties of 6 of any age and ability. Cannot wait to go back. Thanks Michelle.

  • "Fantastic… arrived and was met by the manager."

    .who answered any questions we had. Ideally located to visit everywhere we wanted to visit. Truro, and all its amenities are a short drive away. Nice and secluded and so peaceful. Facilities were fantastic, clean and everything worked as it should. Contacted Sykes about iron who said there wasn’t one, when in fact there was. Would we go again….in a heartbeat!!!

  • "For a disabled person, 'Birch' could not be bettered."

    The walk-in shower was the best I have come across. The only drawback was the purposely reduced hot water temperature in the wash basin. Apperently, we disabled people are not thought capable of adjusting the water temperature to suit. Those of us who lack the co-ordination usually have the common sense to get our carer to do such things for us, as do those of us who lack the sensory perception to realise when things are hot. This did not detract too much from the over-all delight of finding somewhere that caters for the disabled. Our hostess could not have been more helpful in supplementing the aids that were available.

  • "It was wonderful to met Michelle there, what a beautiful lodge so peaceful."

    We had a pleasure week to stay there, felt like a home. It would be nice if add a swimming pool and playground there to keep kids entertained because any beaches are fairly far from the lodge about 20 mins each. Anyway it is beautiful place to stay and so quiet relaxing to listen to few birds. Will come again in the near future. Thank you:-)

  • "This property was absolutely amazing inside and out - the pictures provided do not do it justice."

    One of the cleanest cottages I have booked! Michelle was lovely and met us on arrival, she was very helpful and gave us almost all the information we required for our stay. Only downside of the entire stay, was the fact that we were unable to have access to warm water in the night. This was only brought to our attention when we got in late one day and got into the showers, only to find that the water was ice cold - when ringing Michelle to ask for help, she informed us that the boiler switches off after a certain point - something which we not made aware off on arrival and definitely something that everyone should be aware off!! If were made aware of this fact, we would definitely have still gotten ahead with the booking, but planned ahead to ensure we can shower before bed with warm water! - Apart from this small hiccup, I really couldn't fault our stay. Definitely recommend, but also advise that the boiler situation be made clear on arrival so guests can plan around it!

    Thank you for your feedback which we always welcome. The boiler comes on at 5am and stays on until 10pm at night. We have never had any other complaints about lack of hot water but if you are showering, best to do this between the hours of 5am and 10pm. Property Owner

    It was extremely comfortable. It was also a great base for us to explore Cornwall on our Motorbikes. Michelle met us on our arrival and she was very helpful and friendly and we knew if we had any queries or needed any information we could contact her. We will definitely be back. Thanks Michelle it was lovely to meet you. Dawn and the bike crew

  • "The lodges are spacious, well finished and equipped to a high standard."

    We were warmly welcomed on our arrival, with Michelle opening a locked gate for one of our party who took a wrong turn and meeting another one who arrived late in the evening when the main road was closed and showing them an alternative route in, which was very much appreciated . The lodges are set in lovely grounds and the area is very quiet. We had a very relaxed holiday.

  • "What can I say!"

    !! These lodges are wonderful. We spent 2 weeks in Birch and we were extremely comfortable. The furniture, beds, bedding and linens are all of quality and everything was spotlessly clean. The appliances in the kitchen are excellent and easy to work, and the dressing of the lodge with matching items in the bathrooms, pretty glass vases and faux plants dotted around made it feel homely and bright. Everything was so well organised throughout it was an absolute pleasure to stay here. So peaceful and quiet with lovely country surroundings yet very central to lots of places to visit and the people who manage and look after these lodges are also extremely helpful and are very pleasant! I would recommend a visit to Killiow Lodges all day long!

    The central Cornwall position was great for moving around, we covered most of the County with ease. I would certainly use Sykes Cottages again, and heartily recommend them. We had a great holiday and a lot of it was down to superb accommodation.

Killiow Estate Lodges
