  • "This cottage was not how you described it on your website."

    I have complained to your customer services department because we were extremely disappointed, there were many problems including poor kitchen equipment and the fact that the bathroom was joined on to the dining room, ugh! You had awarded the cottage 3 stars and we had paid the price accordingly, but this cottage was definitely NOT to a 3 star standard!

  • "We rented this property so we could complete the final stage of the St Michaels Way pilgrims walk from Ludgvan to Marazion."

    For that purpose it was an excellent property. For anyone using it as a base for a general holiday they should be aware that there is a steep flight of steps to get into the property and also the stairs in the house itself are quite narrow and are equally steep. Not a problem for us but for young children or those not good on their legs we would say this property is not for them!

  • "We had another wonderful holiday in Brea Cottage."

    It had everything we needed and was comfortable and cosy. Great location for visiting many beautiful beaches, towns and attractions. We particularly appreciated the cream tea and bottle of prosecco on arrival - thank you!

  • "I had stayed at this cottage before so knew what to expect and was not disappointed."

    The only issue I had was not with the property but the information from Sykes. We travelled to the cottage by train and took all the additional Covid related items as directed in the emails from Sykes which resulted in additional luggage but did not need them. The cottage had towels and tea towels and oven gloves and hand sanitisers. The only thing missing was details on how we were to deal with the linen and towels on leaving the property.

  • "The cottage was so well equipped, clean & homely."

    The welcoming gifts were also not only a lovely touch but a most welcoming gesture. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and for a base to get around from, it was excellent. Quiet location with lots of bird song and even a surprise back garden. Would definitely stay here again & would recommend.

  • "The only thing was the steep steps up to the cottage."

    We are in our 70s and trying to get cases up the steep narrow steps was a problem. This is the only entrance to the cottage and I think it should be pointed out and perhaps a hand rail fitted. Everything else was excellent.

  • "The cottage was absolutely lovely - cosy, comfortable and full of character."

    It was exactly as on the listing, with the addition of a dishwasher (not mentioned) and access to beautiful walks along the public footpaths from the fields at the back. The position is ideal for reaching many attractions, beautiful beaches, interesting towns and villages and local landmarks, including St Michael's Mount. Nearby Penzance is very convenient for shops and local amenities. We loved our stay here and hope to visit again.

  • "Great little cottage in a quiet little village within easy reach of St Ives,Penzance and Lands End."

    2 great pubs within a short walk from the cottage. The Star on the A30 is also a brewery so a constantly changing choice. The White Hart at the top of the hill serves a great Sunday lunch. The cottage itself has a woodburner and 4 oil filled electric radiators plus 2 towel rails in the bathroom. We visited in Feb and found the cottage warm enough without using the oil heaters as the woodburner was extremely warm. A fully equipped kitchen plus a welcome pack of milk biscuits and wine. A great holiday and a great cottage def will return.

The property

Crowlas 0.6 miles.

Boasting an elevated position within the quaint village of Ludgvan near Crowlas, is this mid-terrace dwelling, Brea Cottage, exuding charm and character.

This delightful abode is perfectly positioned for couples or a family seeking a traditional getaway to this corner of Cornwall.

After situating your car on the unrestricted road, follow the steps up to the property and admire the scenery before relaxing into your evening.

Oozing charm, the sitting room boasts a woodburning stove which takes centre stage before the plush furnishings and the TV, a wonderful space for a tranquil evening in.

The character of the property is continued into the kitchen where the exposed brick wall overlooks the appliances required to cater for yourselves, whether it be a picnic for the beach or a heart-warming evening meal.

Enjoy your meals within the sun room, where the dining space offers the opportunity to take in the views of the well-kept garden whilst tucking in.

As the evening draws to a close, head up to the first floor to catch your rest in between your Cornish adventures.

Enter the double bedroom and be delighted by the pastel hues of yellows and greys which offer a bright and fresh space for a couple to retreat to, whilst the twin bedroom is well-presented for younger guests of the group.

To the exterior, choose to spend your time upon the south facing decked area with views of the village and surrounding countryside to be enjoyed during a spot of alfresco dining, or head to the rear garden with a cup of tea to soak up the rolling hills of Cornwall.

If you fancy a special treat one evening, a short stroll will bring you to the local pub serving delicious food, or travel slightly further to the village of Crowlas where you will find another pub and a shop.

Alternatively, visit The White Hart pub that serves excellent food only a quarter of a mile from the front door.

A scenic car journey will bring you to St Michael’s Mount which can be reached via boat, offering you and your loved ones the opportunities to explore the 15th century chapel and medieval castles.

For those seeking to discover the glorious coastline, walk along the iconic South West Coastal path where a number of beaches are awaiting to be discovered, boasting opportunities for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Brea Cottage is an elegant base for exploring all that Cornwall has to offer.
