“A great location & the property had everything we needed & parking a added bonus!”
“Absolute gem of a cottage, parking space for two cars is a real bonus.”
The property is clean well laid out and is close to the village, would highly recommend this property.
“Generally clean but dusty in corners etc!”
Kitchen cupboards smelt fusty so pots needed washing before use. Other wise all ok.
“I have sent you an email about this property at approx.”
1pm to 1.30pm today. The problems were with the property and not Sykes as a company. The problems were to many to list here. We spent the first 4 days of our holiday cleaning this property. The owners had "given up", as they are moving back in to the property in October.
“Lovely house in great location with very good facilities.”
“I can not fault Old Cellars in any way.”
Beautiful home, spotlessly clean and a fantastic location. I highly recommend that you book this place if you plan a visit to beautiful Meva
“Front door difficult ,, downstairs toilet would have been helpful, pads on chair feet would have been a bonus in the kitchen.”
The owners supplied a lovely cake ,and replaced a dodgy kettle straight away,which was much appreciated stan and judy pennington
“The old cellars is so close to the harbour and has parking so exploring Mevergissy can be a daily pleasure.”
The properties layout over three floors is qwerty but worked for us as a family with three teens and one dog. On our arrival we were surprised to see that the owners had left us hot cross buns, milk , and irange for ester weekend. A nice touch greatly appreciated by us adukts for a cupper on arrival and the teens on Easter Sunday morning. Exploring the surrounding coastal area is so easy as most places are so very close with great dog friendly beaches and places to visit , just check out the leaflets in the property to get and idea of what's on offer. Just one recommendation that you walk up the steep hill going out of Mevergissy to the south as it gets blocked as there is a lot of local traffic including vans and very few inadequate passing places causing reversing up hill to let cars pass. Not good for gear boxes or breaks pads and can takes a great deal of time to unblock and once your in it your stuck. That all said we will definitely be returning to both this property and Mevergissy and fully recommend it.
“"The Old Cellars".”
.. not the most attractive of names, but it's name belies it's standing. As a family of 3 generations, the layout worked well with us, with our daughter and granddaughter having bedrooms to themselves, while the layout -- described as quirky, worked well and kept us fit :-). The cleanliness deserves a mention, with the whole place very clean and well appointed, the double oven and ceramic hob in the kitchen were easy to use, although a warning to anyone wanting to grill bacon, the smoke alarm is sensitive.... Final point is that the exterior pictures shown on the Sykes website don't do the place justice, being of the back of the building rather than the front, although that photo does show the parking space -- a commodity in very short supply in Meva. After a journey of over 300 miles, we have really enjoyed our stay here and were impressed by the standard of the let as a whole, thanks to Ken and June
