  • “At first appearances the cottage seemed lovely, it smelt and looked clean as we walked through the door.”

    However, somebody had used the downstairs toilet and not cleaned it. The wardrobe in the master bedroom had two damp handtowels in the bottom of it, which smelt lovely. Far from ideal and given the supposed extra lengths that are being undertaken with the cleaning, as the checkout time is 9am instead of 10 to allow for this. It left us feeling concerned - what else isn’t being done properly. It would be fair to say that cleanliness was an issue with this property. One of the sofas moved during the week and rubbish, dust and toenails were found whilst moving it back. Hot water was an issue at times. The bed in the master bedroom was very uncomfortable and small, at 6ft, I found my feet hitting the foot of the bed during the night. The location was good for Maenporth beach and Swanpool. Parking was very close and the spaces are a good size. Parking around the park is an issue, staff seem to abandon their cars outside the bar/restaurant area which can be an issue with oncoming traffic.

    - Mr Reed, August 2020

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at Foxglove Cottage. We are very sorry to hear of the issues you raised after you left the property. Had we been notified during your stay we would have taken immediate action to remedy the issues raised. We have spoken with the owner and the housekeeper who will ensure the points mentioned will be addressed. There is a booster switch in the airing cupboard which would have given more hot water if needed. The double bed in the master bedroom is a standard 6ft 3', bed comfort is a personal preference and there has been no mention of this previously. Despite the points raised we hope you enjoyed your visit to The West Country. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Tucked away in the corner, just along from the tennis courts, Foxglove Cottage is cleverly situated to admire the garden views.

It is a beautifully presented, light and airy home with attractive open plan living and French doors opening onto the gardens.

The well equipped kitchen has ample work space in which to rustle up a family meal.

There are two bedrooms on the first floor that both overlook the gardens and also a family bathroom.

There is comfy terrace furniture on the patio that is an ideal place to relax after a walk to the beach or a run around the footpaths.

There is a dedicated parking space allocated to Foxglove as well as visitor parking close-by.Foxglove is found on the Pendra Loweth complex of privately owned holiday homes and enjoys the warmth of the south west aspect of the village.

Walking from the front door there are paths and lanes leading to Maenporth - a popular beach with both restaurant and cafe.

Likewise, it is close to the on-site all-weather tennis courts just a stone’s throw away.

There is a small gym, plunge pool and children’s play area here too - something for all the family.

Well worth the stroll is the circular walk from the cottage down to Maenporth, up across the spectacular coast path toward Swanpool (another beach with restaurant and cafe) and then back through the lanes to Foxglove - it’s roughly five miles but the sea views will be worth it.

Foxglove Cottage is most suitable for families and groups of friends - it is a good base in which to relax and from where to explore the Falmouth area and all it has to offer.

About the location


Mabe 3 miles; Penryn 2 miles; Truro 11 miles.

Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes). For nature lovers there is the Swanpool Nature Reserve, a lagoon and site of special scientific interest teeming with a variety of wildlife. Falmouth offers such a rich variety of landscape and attractions for people of all ages, it is sure to tempt you back time and again.
