    “We have stayed in several sykes properties before and had a good experience, but this flat was disappointing.”


    The level of cleanliness was not great - the handles on the kitchen cupboards were sticky, there was mould on the shower head and the drain in the shower needs cleaning out. We stayed for 2 weeks in September and the place was damp, despite running the extractor fan in the clothing storage area, and putting the heating on for short periods. It was worst in the bedroom because it was the only room without a radiator, we could smell it in the air and feel it in the bedding. Mould is starting to grow on one wall close to the exterior door. The flat is not well equipped - there's no iron or hairdryer and the kitchenette has a doll-sized sink and drainer which wouldn't be so bad if the dinner plates weren't the same size as the sink! The worktop is so small that the microwave and huge toaster were stored in the under-sink cupboard, and the kitchen utensils are minimal. The cooker hood didn't seem to be working very well and the window next to the kitchenette didn't open so cooking smells lingered in the kitchen/diner/living area. The bathroom has no fixed mirror, making it difficult to shave - my partner had to hold the mirror with one hand and shave with the other. The best things I can say about it is it had a comfy sofa and bed, a good washer/drier and there were plenty of towels. If we had not had good experiences of sykes before, this holiday would have discouraged us from booking again. Next time I'll make sure I read the reviews before I book! Oh, and that cotton bud is still in the radiator....

The property

Conveniently located to visit much of West Cornwall and its superb South Coast, this comfortable and cosy one-bedroom apartment in Penryn, one of Cornwall's most ancient towns, is just a stone’s throw from both the town centre and harbour, and one mile from Falmouth.

Enter the property into the bright and sociable open plan living area, with its large comfy sofa, wall-mounted TV, contemporary kitchen and dining area.

One step up through sliding doors and you’ll find the unusual bedroom, standing side-by-side with the bathroom, both adjoining the living area.

Step out of the apartment and within just a few minutes’ stroll you can be beside the harbour.

Penryn is a hub for sailing and the town centre, with its character builds and slanting cobbled streets offers individual shops, galleries, cafés and pubs including the 200 year-old Kings Arms.

With the beautiful Helford River nearby and fine sandy beaches within a short distance, you will never be short of options for a day out.

Combine this with the fact that Falmouth is just a mile away, where you can while away your day on the beach, wander the South West Coast Path, spend the afternoon on a fishing or scuba diving trip or peruse the array of shops in the bustling town, and you have the perfect base for a wonderful holiday, whatever time of year.

About the location


Falmouth 1 mile; Truro 9 miles.

One of the oldest market towns in Cornwall, the pretty port of Penryn boasts a wealth of historic architecture and harbour heritage with attractive granite buildings steeply sloping along the cobbled streets down to the sea. There’s a good choice of restaurants, cafes and pubs in the town, along with a museum offering free entry, and the tranquil Enys Gardens on the outskirts of the town, providing a range of grounds and a peaceful haven. Further along the Penryn River, just one mile towards the sea you’ll find the famous seaport of Falmouth, with a host of things to keep you entertained including harbour-side pubs and eateries offering spectacular views, stunning Blue Flag beaches and a bustling town centre. Visit the National Maritime Museum for a taste of Cornwall’s sea-faring history, or the fine Tudor fortress of Pendennis Castle, superb set gazing out to sea. You don’t have to venture far from Penryn to discover Cornwall’s many sights, delights and stunning coastline, and this is the perfect character base from which to see it all.
