  • "We had a fabulous family holiday in Falmouth in Oak Cottage."

    The location of the cottage was perfect for access to the beach and main Cornwall attractions. The grounds were very well maintained, dog friendly and a beautiful setting. The facilities were perfect as well. The kids loved the plunge pool and playground. The cottage had everything we needed and was very spacious. The only improvement needed is the lounge area sofa and carpet could do with an end of season clean. We’ll definitely be back!

  • "This was our third visit to Pendra Loweth (3 adults and a dog) and we were very happy with Oak Cottage."

    It was clean and well equipped and we particularly enjoyed the conservatory. We would have liked to try out the new menus but was fully booked. We suggest you book early if this is for you. Looking forward to our next visit in September.

  • "Great spacious property, clean and tidy."

    Perhaps the only issue being the shower over the bath maybe a non slip shower mat and wall rail could be considered to improve access for us with mobility issues. That said great time would recommend.

  • "We had a wonderful week, particularly enjoying the conservatory."

    The beds were comfortable. We would just like to point out that there were no lights in the downstairs toilet and the remote control didn't work due to run down batteries.

  • "Site was was quiet and well maintained with good facilities."

    However the cottage was very tired with poor quality mattresses. When we arrived the The cottage was very dirty and we had to spend the first few hours cleaning. We also had to wash all the crockery as a high number were dirty! We were shocked at the number of cobwebs in very obvious areas - no excuse! The furniture in the conservatory was dreadful and smelt damp. I would not return to this cottage as none of us had a good night sleep for the whole week and clearly COVID cleaning protocols were definitely not observed.

    No issues inside though and very well equipped and comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

  • "The mattress on the double bed needs upgrading."

    It is very thin, and caused me some back ache. The TV in the lounge needs to be bigger. Difficult to watch from the sofa, and couldn't read any words on the TV from the sofa. Didn't watch much TV, but we did want to watch the highlights of the Olympics. Toilet roll holder in downstairs bathroom needs refixing on wall, loose, falls out. Some of the windows in the conservatory need replacing, glass blown. Nice cottage in a lovely location, just needs a bit on investment

    We would like to thank you for your feedback which we take seriously. We will be looking at the decoration, furnishings and equipment in the property in the next few weeks. The toilet roll holder was fixed as soon as it was reported. Planned work to the conservatory will be carried out at the beginning of the New Year. We are glad that you enjoyed the cottage and its location. Property Owner

  • "The house is in a beautiful location among a very smart and well- maintained estate in landscaped surroundings and gardens."

    It is spacious and warm with an abundance of kitchen tools, cutlery, glasses, crockery etc. The only weakness is the state of the conservatory windows, as about a dozen of the double glazing units have failed and are full of condensation.This hits you as soon as you walk in the building and detracts from your overall impression of the house. Needs putting right!

  • "This house was great for a family, well equipped kitchen and all immaculately clean."

    We found it well placed for both Swanpool and Maenporth beaches, and only 10 minutes to Falmouth. I also liked the grounds and surrounding gardens which were well maintained, and we made good use of the playground. Highly recommended.

  • "This was our second consecutive year on Pendra Lowery, although not in the same cottage, so we knew what to expect and we weren't disappointed."

    The weather helped of course! The house was clean and had all we needed. My only issue was the bed wasn't very comfortable but that might just be me and my dodgy back. Falmouth is lovely, lots of things to do, and so dog friendly everywhere. We had a meal in the bar on our last night and I can honestly say it was the best meal out we've had in years. It's so easy to book through Sykes and I'm sure we'll be going again next year. Highly recommended.

  • "This cottage is fantastically equipped but could have been cleaner."

    Unfortunately lots of the double glazed windows have failed with condensation between the glass panes which makes the property look a little tired. The site is beautifully kept. The bar/cafe is very over priced with no atmosphere so was therefore not really used. Having said this I would return to this property. It is perfectly placed for Falmouth and surrounding areas.

  • "Overall a fantastic holiday home for a fantastic budget."

    With three children the house doesn’t need to be prestige, a family feel and a clean and safe environment is all you can ask for. Sykes and the site we stayed at could not of been anymore accommodating for us. We will be returning to Sykes and in fact have already booked for another holiday this year and I’m about to look for next year. Sykes is the way forward for our family and it’s a pleasure to have found them.

  • "The cottage needs a deep clean and some maintenance."

    The upstairs toilet seat needs fixing, as does the cold tap in the bathroom which drips. The kitchen isn’t very well equipped; no plastic bowls/cutlery for kids, couldn’t find a jug or any oven gloves. No dishcloth provided and only one spare bin bag - like self catering of old! The freezer in the fridge needs defrosting; water constantly drips down into the fridge so all the food gets wet which is really irritating. The Vac was completely blocked and looked like it hadn’t been cleaned out for months, so we had to sort this out before being able to use it. The holiday park is great and the grounds are lovely; Oak Cottage just needs some care and attention.
