"Mizzen is a a lovely cottage inside."
Well decorated and furnished though master bed bit firm for us. We did have a lot of rain on day one and it flooded the front yard of the cottage, due to blocked drain and water also came into the cottage. Frustrating and smelly, maintenance needed on guttering. We called and John Bray representative got back to me quickly and plumber came out cleared drain within 24hrs. Thank you. They also got the over grown back garden sorted.
Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your stay. We're very sorry that you had to experience these issues during your visit but thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we sorted them for you. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back anytime in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner
"We had a great week in the village."
The property needs a little maintenance. The guttering is broken at front, bathrooms need a refurb. When we booked we thought there was a car parking space, Sykes never got back to clarify this. We loved staying in the village, even if the logistics of getting in and out with older family was a bit challenging.
Thank you for providing us with your feedback following your stay at The Mizzen, it is great to hear you had a great week. I have passed your feedback onto the maintenance team they will ensure the guttering is fixed. I will update the website in regards to the parking space so it is clear, I am really sorry that you question wasn’t answered – John Bray Cornish Holiday’s on behalf of the owners. Property Owner
"There were no basic necessities such as extra toilet paper, no paper towels, tea, sugar and no nespresso pods for the coffee maker-which you can’t just go out and buy at a shop so there’s really no point in having it there."
The dishwasher didn’t work and despite reaching out to Sykes Cottages via email several times no one ever got back to me. The upstairs shower could really use either a good scrub or new grout. The location was great, right in the center of town which was very convenient.
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by these issues. Our properties are self catering by nature so these extra provisions are not provided. Your comments however have been passed on to the team here at John Bray Cornish Holidays. We hope you still managed to enjoy your visit despite these issues and would love to welcome you back to North Cornwall in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner.

"Need to make visitors aware that car park is a 15minute walk away up a hill."
Beds very comfortable, sofas not. Water pressure too low in both showers-I have longish hair which wash 2- 3 times a week & it was difficult to wash shampoo out. Saucepan handles loose which made saucepans unsafe, we tightened the screw using a knife. No washing up bowl or drainer. Only 5 normal sized mugs yet property sleeps 6. No sieve or collander. No table mats & plastic tablecloth on dining table. Expected higher standard for price
Thank you very much for taking the time to provide us with your feedback following your recent stay at The Mizzen. We have raised the issues with the water pressure and sauce pan handles with the maintenance team. We are speaking with the owner in regards to the washing up bowl, drainer, mugs, sieve, colander, table mats and table cloth. We do you hope you enjoyed your stay and the above issues didn’t have to much of an impact - John Bray Cornish Holidays Property Owner
"The property is beginning to show signs of what is probably fairly heavy use."
The two single bedrooms have no hanging space at all which is fairly inconvenient for the occupants of those rooms. The location right in the centre of Port Isaac is great but it’s not for the elderly or infirm as vehicular access is pretty difficult. The reference by one reviewer to having a parking space is presumably a joke, the street is barely 1.5m wide and car access impossible.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are sorry to hear that the property didn't suit your needs, your comments will be raised to our property quality assessor and all feedback in shared with the owner - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner
"Great location, amazing views just a few steps away."
Cottage was very comfortable for four adults.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back anytime in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner
"Although the cottage was beautiful, the garden was very overgrown and dangerous to access as the steps were overgrown with a bush."
There were no hangers and when we asked for some we only got a few. There were no hand towels. The light was broken/maybe a bulb had gone in the downstairs toilet. There was a broken mug in the cupboard hidden at the back. There weren’t enough hooks for towels/coats. The single bedrooms had no hooks or hanger options. The single bedrooms blinds let all the light in. It just wasn’t as comfortable as we were expecting. Although the washing machine was awesome to have and that was a bonus. The dishwasher worked really well. However, Port Isaac is wonderful and it was a wonderfully unique place to stay.

"We really enjoyed the cottage."
Very well equipped. Perfect location, having the coastal path on your doorstep was amazing and it was lovely to sit outside in the back garden. The parking space was a real bonus! By the end of the week we had found all the short cuts!

Port Isaac; one of the true Cornish treasures. A beautiful fishing village nestling in a steep sided valley, the old village in the valley remains unchanged from its days of fishing, slate export and smuggling in the previous century. An abundance of small character properties complemented by larger cliff-top retreats, can be found with easy access to the numerous restaurants and shops of the village. The sandy harbour provides an abundance of rock pools as the tide retreats. There is ample parking at the top of the village and the village is a popular tourist destination with plenty of attractions including the dramatic Doyden Castle, the beautiful Lundy Bay and the famous Doc Martin's clinic. There are also plenty of pubs, restaurants, and shops in the village. Just a short drive from the beaches of Polzeath, Daymer and Rock, it is perfect for romantic and family holidays alike.
