    “We love Padstow and the Camel Estuary and return to the area year after year.”

    However, this October we were badly let down this year by Sykes Cottages and by the Owner of Mount Pleasant. We cannot recommend tMount Pleasant or Sykes Cottages. The standard of maintenance at Mount Pleasant is low. We arrived to find the cottage had no hot water. The area of damp in the boiler cupboard was evidence of a leak that has been going on a while.

    However, this October we were badly let down this year by Sykes Cottages and by the Owner of Mount Pleasant. We cannot recommend tMount Pleasant or Sykes Cottages. The standard of maintenance at Mount Pleasant is low. We arrived to find the cottage had no hot water. The area of damp in the boiler cupboard was evidence of a leak that has been going on a while. The first 3 days of our holiday were spent on the phone, liaising with the owner, with Customer Relations at Sykes and with the Plummer. We were able to have a wash on the Sunday by walking to the other side of the village to use the shower in a hotel. On the third day it was decided that the property needed a new boiler and the heating needed to be turned off too. Sykes informed us that they were unable to fulfill the booking and that we would have to vacate the property. The fourth day of our holiday was spent packing up, reloading the car, cleaning and tidying up the cottage and travelling elsewhere. We were moved to a rather gloomy, damp house in another part of Cornwall, where we had not chosen to spend our holiday (we had booked to be Padstow to celebrate our son's 18th). Needless to say we are pursuing compensation for our aborted holiday. However neither the owner nor Sykes are willing to take responsibility. We are currently still battling with unanswered emails, endless prevarication and passing the buck. We need Sykes management to step in and resolve this issue immediately.

    - Mrs Thorpe, October 2020

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback. We are sorry to hear that you feel badly let down. As you are aware, the boiler problems were out of the owner's control and once the owner was made aware of the problem, everything possible was done to rectify the situation. The heating was working, but as you had no hot water the owner booked you an hotel room so that you could shower in comfort. Unfortunately, the plumber subsequently advised that a new boiler was required, so we offered you the choice of a full refund, or to be re-housed in a different property. We hope that the gesture of good will that you have received to compensate you for these issues will go some way to mitigating your experience. - Sykes owner relations

The property

This handsome, peaceful, detached house is just 100 yards gentle stroll from Padstow’s lively shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés and only 150 yards from the bustling harbour.

It commands wonderful views over the town to the Camel estuary and, remarkable as it may seem, is in a peacefully secluded spot in the heart of this rather special seaside town.

There’s plenty of room for all the family to relax in the light, bright and sunlight-filled open plan living area with well-equipped kitchen, dining area, conservatory and sitting area with ‘living flame’ gas fire, all facing south for all day sun and views of the big garden.

Also on the ground floor, a very handy, large utility room with lots of room for boots, bicycles and surf boards and a cloakroom with WC and basin.

Upstairs, three bedrooms all with great views, a double leading through to a sunroom with comfy seating for drinking in those great views, a room with a double and a single bed, and a further room with a single and a child’s cabin bed, plus a family bathroom.

Outside a big, wonderfully secluded garden, perfect for a spot of R&R after a day spent exploring this vibrant town and area.

Stroll down a short passageway to the town’s interesting shops, bars and restaurants – it’s Rick Stein’s base – and catch the pedestrian ferry across to Rock for some fun on the water at the water sports centre and sailing school.

If you prefer a round of golf, there’s an excellent course at St Enodoc.

This is a fabulous place for those that like the buzz of a lively town coupled with some quiet space to escape and relax after a day’s fun and games.

About the location

PADSTOW

Harlyn 2.9 miles; Constantine Bay 4.2 miles; Polzeath 15.6 miles.

Padstow is situated at the head of the Camel Cycle Trail and is a fantastic base for exploring the South West Coastal Path which opens up routes to beautiful Cornish countryside. This delightful fishing port is surrounded by sandy beaches and offers many opportunities to taste the locally sourced produce in celebrity owned establishments. Padstow has something for everyone with watersports, walking, cycling and fishing, you can even take a trip on a local fisherman’s boat! The excellent surfing beaches of Harlyn and Constantine are ideal for safe family fun, and Constantine Bay is also home to a golf course, just a few miles away, while a passenger ferry across the river from Padstow to Rock takes you to the beach at Daymer Bay. Just around the corner toward Pentire Head is the surfing paradise at Polzeath, and when the beach no longer calls, there’s a golf course nearby, several stately homes and gardens to visit. The fabulous Eden Project is just over twenty miles away.
