  • "Superb property of a very high quality."

    We loved everything about Strawberry Cottage; it was so homely and we were very sorry when our stay there came to an end. Would highly recommend this property.

  • "Strawberry Cottage was as expected."

    Clean and comfortable. There was plenty of space for all six of us. The kitchen had all we required and more. The beds were very comfortable. The hot tub was lovely all though the filter needed looking at. Over all we had a very pleasant stay. The only thing we all agreed on was the access to and from the garden, through the bedroom. It was a bit cramped but we all managed ok.

  • "Overall the cottage was nice however, unless your car is no larger than vw golf there is no off street parking - this is the same for all the neighbours so the road is heavily congested with cars - if you put you car on the drive you wouldn’t get out of your car unless you have a sunroof - so I feel it’s wrong not to make this clear."

    The ensuite had black mould on the walls an ceiling and the extractor fan was so full of dust it couldn’t have been cleaned for a year. There is ample wall space for full length mirrors in the bedrooms but there are none just a tiny little mirror sat on the bedside tables. I also feel that all rooms should have a working tv not just a DVD player as this was not made clear and we had no dvds with us. Aside from that it was nice but certainly not luxurious but I guess it depends on what you’re used to.

  • "Drive very narrow and parking very tight in the road."

    Therefore if you have 2 cars could be stressful. Cottage furnished very comfortably with all home comforts. Notes suggest not using the hot tub after 10.00pm as is in a residential area which can limit your use on a holiday. Nicely situated to explore the area.

  • "The cottage had everything we needed and was lovely and clean."

    The only thing to take into consideration is the size of your vehicle as we have a large 4 wheel drive - the drive/porch and the street to the cottage was very tight.

  • "The house was very comfortable and well equipped especially the kitchen."

    The hot tub was lovely, the little courtyard garden was nice. There is a nice food pub just up the road and Penryn is well served with pubs and takeaways. The only downside of the house was that although the living room had SKY tv, only a few channels were available and the tv in the main bedroom had terrible reception.

  • "The beds are not kingsize as stated in the summary."

    The downstairs bedroom was very musty. I chose to keep most of my clothes in my suitcase as putting them in the chest of drawers would have made them smell. The sky dish is so old & rusty (I have photos) it's no wonder we could only watch certain channels and the picture was constantly breaking up. Also the toilet brushes in the bathroom & en suite were rusty and dirty (again I have photos) Overall the cottage was a good base and very well equipped and we enjoyed our holiday but in the current covid climate I feel the cleanliness could have been better.

  • "Strawberry Cottage is in Penryn near Falmouth."

    We were a family of 6 (3 generations). The cottage was just perfect, it was exactly as stated on Sykes' website. The owner had provided everything you could think of. In the garage there were sun chairs, wind breakers, body boards, bbq, washer, dryers and buckets and spades for guests to use. We all enjoyed using the hot tub, even my dad who's 86. The cottage was in an easy to find location and ideal for visiting places. We visited Falmouth town, Gylly beach and Perranporth. Dollys tearoom has some delicious honey and rose scones. We had an evening meal and a family breakfast at the Windjammer restaurant near Trago mill. Also the Carnon Downs Premier Inn has a lovely Beefeater restaurant. The Flicka Donkey Foundation near Penryn is a donkey/rescue sanctuary. It is free to visit, but you need to pre book well in advance. I would recommend Strawberry Cottage to friends and family and I will definitely book to stay there again.

  • "Good base for Falmouth and travelling to other parts of Cornwall."

    The house was beautifully decorated with a homely feel. Perfect for 4 people seating wise in the kitchen & lounge, perhaps a bit small for 6. The Jacuzzi was a real bonus and made a nice way to relax after a long day out and about.

  • "The cottage is in a good location close to Falmouth and, although only a small village, very close to the amenities in Penryn."

    The facilities were very good, lots of videos, games and books. The décor was pleasing and the kitchen was very well equipped. The main bathroom would benefit from having a proper wall fixing and curtain for the shower, as we had 6 adults using the en-suite shower! The hot tub was a lovely treat - shame it was accessed through one of the bedrooms. Altogether a very relaxing, comfortable accommodation.

  • "Holiday home was beautiful and spacious and thoroughly loved the place."

    Just 2 things let it down... Firstly, my son dropped a lot of stuff on the floor and when retrieving it I found a bottle of water and a tissue under the settee, an empty vaping box, a face mask and cotton wool buds under the bedside tables.... I could understand if they couldn't be seen but settees and cabinets were a good few inches off floor so clearly visible if someone had looked. With covid at the moment I didn't appreciate having to dispose of these items. Second thing to disapoint was the tvs didn't work in either of the bedrooms. They wouldn't pick up a signal so I had 2 teenagers who were disappointed they couldn't watch TV in their room.

  • "The cottage was amazing, totally exceeded our expectations."

    The hot tub made the holiday, along with the cottage feeling like home from home. Location was perfect, with a pub at the top of the road!! Along with a number of good takeaways and a local shop within easy walking distance. Would recommend Red Chilli Indian takeaway. It is a short drive into Falmouth, and the house is perfectly placed to explore the wonders that Cornwall has to offer. Absolutely outstanding house. Thank you.

  • "First time having a holiday in Britain for about 20 years."

    Would definitely recommend Strawberry Cottage as it was in a lovely location very quite. The owner Mrs Jackson has given the cottage that home from home feeling & has thought of everything down to wetsuits, body boards, sea shoes and everything else you can think of needed for the beach. The information pack she has prepared is great where the shops are, best places to eat. Had to contact her whilst we were there as there was an issue with the hot tub she got someone to come out at around 9pm in the evening much appreciated. My 15 year old daughter also realised on our way home that she had left her jacket in the wardrobe, I contacted the owner & she is going to post it back to us which I can’t thank her enough for. Also arriving to milk in the fridge was most welcome after a 6 hour drive. would defiantly be looking to book again,
