  • "A beautiful house with lots of space and a great games room."

    Unfortunately we found it a little difficult to cook with so few utensils and cookware. We popped to Asda to buy some cookware (I even left a baking tray), but it wouldn’t take much to add a few things to make self catering a little easier, especially as the house can sleep 8. We had 6 guests stay and struggled. A shaver point and a hairdryer would also be welcome. Other than that, we had a lovely stay, the garden is great and our dog enjoyed running around the path looking for squirrels. The housekeeper was very friendly and organised fixing a problem in super quick time which was much appreciated.

  • "Well catered for clean and very comfortable."

    we all enjoyed our break. We would recommend the local pub, think called lemon arms

  • "The location is excellent and the property is spacious and airy, but unfortunately our experience was lesser than anticipated owing to a lack of basics upon arrival (e."

    G. salt & pepper, cling film, tinfoil, kitchen tongs...) and the property is in need of some updating/repairs (e.g. a cooker hood would be helpful and the ground-floor toilet is completely loose and looks/smells like it may have been leaking). Happy to provide the owner with a more comprehensive list if they have a genuine desire to address all of the issues, but the best advice we could offer is for owners to stay in their property periodically to experience directly matters which need attention.

  • "Spick and span throughout the property."

    Lovely gardens. It was a perfect location to go visiting the local attractions such as Lands End//St Michael's Mount//Eden Gardens//Newquay etc. All the family were singing the praises of the whole experience. Several trips into Falmouth (only 4 miles away) were especially good.

  • "Positive Position excellent with panoramic views from Dinging room and lounge Owner and Housekeeper resolved minor issue efficiently and quickly Very comfortable house for a party of 6 Negative If you enjoy cooking you will be disappointed with basic Kitchen equipment and crockery, a mishmash of wine glasses and no small fruit /salad bowels used ( used tea cups for prawn cocktails !"

  • "On the whole the house met our immediate expectations we felt as a couple in their later years that the main bed was too low so we moved to another bedroom ."

    We slept a lot better in here so it wasnt actually a problem.. My husband felt that the driveway took some negotiating , he felt that if the bushes had been trimmed down on the right hand side of the driveway it would have helped in manouvering whilst reversing but once again when he got used to it he was ok The views were absolutely stunning from each room .we really enjoyed the peace and quiet although it was not warm enough to sit in the garden .when we returned in.the evening We really enjoyed the holiday and consequently have booked for a week next year .

  • "A fabulous property."

    Modern, light, airy and very comfortable. Great location close to village, creek and pub. Only a couple of minor things: A shaver point in bathroom would be useful. A line outside or rotary ( managed with airers). Loved the main living area and colourful pictures. By comparison, the bedrooms were a little bland ( but very clean and comfortable). Lastly, the main bathroom was looking a bit tired, but again clean and functional. Only minor things which wouldn’t stop me booking the place again. Just for owner feedback for potential improvements. Thank you, we really enjoyed staying.

    Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We are delighted that you have enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for your very helpful suggestions - they have all been noted. We hope to welcome you again to our property in the future. Property Owner

  • "Struggled to find a property that accommodated 8 with parking for 3 cars, then found this."

    It served its purpose, being relatively close to all the amenities that we required. Shop/pub 5 mins, beaches 4 miles, Truro 8 miles. However, the photos are obviously quite old as the property, whilst spacious and comfy, is looking very tired and in need of modernisation/updating. Parking for 3 hatchbacks is very difficult, ended up agreeing with a neighbour to park on side of the road. We have all experienced faster Dial Up wifi ! More information on Recycling would be useful. Having said that, in fairness, the property (covid rules) contained everything we needed.

  • "I booked the cottage for a family get together and it worked very well, Plenty of space in all the rooms."

    The gardens looked lovely but unfortunately the weather was awful so we never got outside much. Picturesque views over the river. Minutes to walk to the local pub the Lemon Arms which is a friendly local which serves excellent pub grub. Also the local shop the same distance. An ideal location for anyone who wants to walk and also very near to Falmouth and Truro. I would definitely stay again.

  • "We found the lower floor of the building smelt very damp, and the bed down there felt damp."

    We are pleased to confirm that after a thorough inspection, we found no damp in the lower ground floor - not in the building or any of the furniture/bedding. We have had other guests since and they were happy with their stay. So we hope this gives you assurance and we look forward to welcoming you to Gwel-an-Gillan again Property Owner

  • "This house is fabulous."

    It is spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped, there was even dishwasher tablets and washing powder provided. WiFi, games plus a games room. The bedrooms are all very big with plenty of storage and super views. Lots of lovely fluffy towels. Beautiful garden. The location is wonderful, so easy to get around Cornwall. Also, a short walk to the quay and the Lemon Tree pub which I highly recommend for lovely, well priced food and friendly locals. The road up to the house was a lit disconcerting initially but not a problem once we got to the house. I thoroughly recommend this house. I have holidayed with Sykes in the past and they never let me down but this house is my favourite by far. A lovely house, superb location, fabulous holiday - thank you from us all.

  • "Gwel an Gilan is a lovely spacious house ."

    We had a fantastic week there with friends. The accommodation was excellent. Comfy beds and lounge and dining room. The kitchen very well equipped and a games room too! The garden was lovely and well cared for. In the village of Mylor Bridge just a short walk to local shops. A post office small but well stocked village store, local butchers and fishmongers, and of course the lemon arms pub with excellent food and drinks. A great base to go exploring from. Would highly recommend renting this cottage and we would love to return!

About the location

MYLOR BRIDGE

Falmouth 4 miles; Truro 8 miles.

A sought-after and picturesque village at the head of Mylor Creek that runs up from the Carrick Roads, the World’s third largest deep water harbour. Boats and sailing, wooded creeks, softly gliding water, riverside pubs and fabulous gardens epitomise the area. This friendly village has a superb selection of local shops (try the fresh fish!), a Post Office, a good pub and several restaurants within easy reach. The nearby harbour town of Falmouth with its exciting Maritime Museum and its castle, beaches and marina makes a great day out while the Cathedral city of Truro famous for its cobbled streets, theatre, museums and vibrant shopping centre should not be missed. Take the car, or a boat from Falmouth, for a trip up the stunningly beautiful Helford River and while there, call in at Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens for the horticultural treat of the year. The area is perfectly placed too for exploring the rugged cliffs, sandy coves and fishing villages of the Lizard Peninsula, also The Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are both within an hour’s drive.
