  • "Had a lovely holiday."

    .The cottage is ideal as a base for going out&about to lots of areas. Not everyone especially those as us with a long journey of up to 7 hours with stop offs, brings their own foods we did bring some&pets things but a Welcome pack would be lovely things like bread, milk, tea, coffee, eggs , all local we were left ciders they were lovely. Needs to really state what the village has and opening times as the only shop only open to 530 or not late same as the chip shop.I would also let people with small children and pets know that their is a stone wall re garden & there is a drop if climbed on or to car park if got under the hedge. Would be ideal if small fencing was put around this area as our pup got on the wall and jumped.. Lovely lady who owns the cottage & good that you can nip to a shed and use a washing machine and dryer.. If you are wanting a very quiet break with just the lovely birds&local cats, or for going out and about this is ideal..

  • "We were not impressed with the stay at Longview Cottage, the area had abandoned cars littered around the village or vehicles that were being repaired and as the car parking area for the cottage could not be seen from the property we did not feel secure in leaving our vehicle there ."

    In the promotion photos it stated that there was a patio area to use attached to the cottage, how can you use this area when you have to jump over a brick wall to access it ?. The facilities were ok but no washing machine , the property was clean and tidy but a lot smaller than expected and as such the problems we have mentioned did not encourage our stay at the cottage, and as we was on holiday to celebrate my 70th birthday we did not feel comfortable in staying, so after 30 minutes or so we returned home.The promotion shots portrayed a cosy romantic cottage for a nice break away but in reality it was nothing of the sort !!!!

    Thank you for your review. Penwithick is a lovely ,safe Cornish village. There are no abandoned cars. The safe car park is inside our property and is gated at night. The pretty patio is easily accessible from the cottage path, you do not have climb over any walls. It is a beautiful, peaceful, exclusive sun trap, we have an abundance of flowers, plants and lawn. If you sit still long enough you might see some wildlife. the washing machine is located in our outhouse along with the tumble dryer, you only needed to ask for directions. The cottage sleeps two, and as such, is a lovely, cosy relaxing place to spend time within. We are in close proximity to a plethora of wonderful beaches, visitor attractions, gardens and harbours. We are sorry that you personally felt the cottage and location was not for you, but the majority of our lovely visitors, who have stayed with us, have had a wonderful time. Property Owner

    I stayed here for a month and very quickly it felt like home. And it's so quiet. The shower is a bit small. Phil and Carol are lovely and right on hand if you need anything. Would highly recommend staying here for a cornish holiday.

  • "As a property that allows dogs, cleanliness is always an issue with the soft furnishings."

    In this property rugs had dutifully been cleaned however I think the sofa may be beyond help. Lovely scented candles were provided but the sofa was giving off an aroma all of it's own. I did also have to clean under it. They hadn't moved the sofa and done this. Low light fittings and a section at the top of the stairs is very low. A warning of this would be good. The reading lamp was an excellent extra. Never had that before. All in all a lovely place with good heating and facilities.

    The house is over 200 years old stairs are steep as the write up states .The sofa is old and converts into a bed for the renters to use if the stairs are to steep we will clean moor the soft furnishings Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic holiday and this quirky little cottage did not disappoint us."

    It was extremely clean and had all the facilities needed on a week long break, the hosts were on site if we had a problem (we didn't) and they left a lovely couple of bottles of cider on arrival which was appreciated after a long drive; they also keep a couple of chickens so we had some tasty fresh eggs for breakfast. The cottage is central to lots of other resorts/ towns so we were able to do a lot of planned site seeing and if we are ever in the area again we would certainly rebook this fabulous cottage.

    The lighting in the downstairs room is very poor making it difficult to cook and read. Prior to going on holiday, like other people we know, I found it impossible to contact Sykes by phone, fortunately unlike others I was not trying to get a refund.

  • "Cottage was okay but the cleanliness left a lot to be desired especially in current pandemic situation."

    Also due to Covid eating out was difficult and found cooking utensils were quite sparse, 1 small saucepan, 1 small frying pan and a steamer. Did enjoy the bottle of wine in the welcome pack but found the almost out of date Reduced pint of milk quite off putting.

    We appreciated the welcome pack and the use of the garden to sit out in with only the sound of birds to keep us company. The position of the cottage was such that the places we wanted to visit were easily accessed by car or public transport. We have holidayed in Cornwall before but we hadn’t been to Fowey, Truro or Charlestown and they were all thoroughly enjoyed by us. We were recommended to book Sykes accommodation by a number of our friends and we weren’t disappointed in fact we may be booking a cottage in Northern Ireland with another couple next spring. Thank you for helping us enjoy a lovely holiday in a wonderful county.

The property

St Austell 2.5 miles.

This cosy, semi-detached cottage is 200 years old and is a beautiful blend of old and new.

Set beside the owner's home and their large gardens and paddock, it is situated in the village of Penwithick, a short drive from St Austell and just three miles from the fantastic Eden Project.

Set back from the heart of the village up a long tarmac track, a short walk from the convenience store and fish and chip shop, this wonderful little property is a lovely, romantic base for couples to explore Cornwall.

The front door opens directly into a small, pretty open plan living area with a deep, comfy sofa beside the window and a beautiful, modern kitchen with a Belfast sink.

There are wooden overhead beams and a stunning, stone feature fireplace set in the far wall.

Upstairs, there is a shower room and a charming double bedroom with lovely countryside views from the window and a stunning, original stained glass window set between the bedroom and hallway.

There is also a pretty, decorative heater above the bed and a large wardrobe so you can fully unpack and really make yourselves at home at Longview.

Outside, to the front of the cottage is a large lawned area shared with the owners, as well as a private seating area directly in front of the cottage.

In the summer, this make a fantastic spot to sit out with dinner, or enjoy a glass of wine as you enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this superb location.

There is ample off-road parking and the Eden Project can be reached by foot across fields from the back of the property.

This area of Cornwall is incredible, with so much to see and do.

The Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes of the Eden Project are an absolute must-visit, and you can visit St Austell, the delightful Charlestown and enjoy beach days at Carlyon Bay.

Slightly further afield is Newquay and Perranporth, Truro, Mevagissey and Looe.

Also The Cornish Way Clay Trails are nearby with over 200 miles of inter-linking walk and cycle paths to enjoy.

The Polperro Heritage Coast is excellent for walking enthusiasts, whilst the village of Polperro itself is a wonderful day out.

Infamous for its smuggling tales, there is a museum, shops, restaurants and you can take fishing trips from the harbour.

However you choose to spend your holiday, this delightful little cottage will certainly be the cherry on top of your Cornish getaway!
