  • "This is a lovely friendly-feeling holiday house to stay in – bright, spacious, and relaxing, with its big windows and comfortable seating maximising the benefit of its fabulous views."

    Its well-thought out spaces are very well equipped, with great kitchen facilities, good hot showers and bath, a washing machine, a tumble dryer, an excellent table-tennis table, and a really nice well-tuned piano. We loved staying here and would highly recommend.

  • "Another wonderful stay."

    The house is in an amazing location, has such beautiful views and an instant feeling of homeliness. The addition of a table-tennis table was a fantastic addition. Looking forward to returning again in the not too distant future.

  • "Absolutely lovely house, lots of space and everything you need."

    The only point dropped was hubby's bed was too hard, but not a problem really! Were only working in the area, so hope to come back again.

  • "The lounge area was really large and spacious, however the TV was a very small screen, it really needed a 47 to 55" screen."

    In the evenings when we did watch TV it was a struggle to read any wording on the TV. There were two other very minor points first a dishwasher although not essential would have been nice, also I do not think that carpeting of any kind is very hygienic in a bathroom. After saying all that we had a very enjoyable holiday, the views from the property were absolutely stunning, and although Newquay was not within reasonable walking distance there was a handy bus which was very regular every hour and a taxi was only £5/6. Will be looking for more Sykes properties for next year.

    Many thanks for your feedback. The carpet in the bathroom has now been replaced with tiles which are more easily cleaned. Property Owner

  • "Lovely spacious property in the main well equipped and most certainly fantastic views."

    Found the fridge too small for a party of 5 adults and the refuse bin equally too small. Otherwise a fantastic stay and we would definitely return in the future.

    Many thanks for your feedback. There is now a large spacious fridge in the property in addition to a spare fridge and freezer to cater for larger groups of guests. The refuse company has now been changed, resulting in larger bins for both household waste and recycling. Property Owner
