  • "Absolutely loved our week away at Easterly, dogs loved the garden, very friendly pub with great food just down the road, beaches a 5 minute drive away."

    Cottage itself was super cosy & warm, yes there's traffic noise & the funny little alcove where u can hear the neighbour none of this kept as awake in the very comfortable bed apart from the night we were rudely awoken by a very loud hooting owl!! With the exception of the fantastic tapas at The Bank in Bude this was definitely the highlight & we hope to come back even just for Mr Owl! Thank you so much for having us x Lisa, David, Rossi & Tetley Ps could you put in an actual guest book for writing in at the cottage?

    It was well equipped, especially the kitchen. My two small dogs loved the garden, exploring all the nooks and crannies. Good off road parking with clear vision as you reverse out.

  • "I probably missed it but was really disappointed to see there was no washing machine."

    We stayed for two weeks, so I had to do handwashing which isnt much fun on holiday. I also think that the allocation of one bath and hand towel per week was pretty mean! Finally they say they have a wood burner but its electric. They explain why in the welcome pack but it shouldnt be listed as a wood burner when it isnt.

  • "Beautiful period thatched cottage clean cosy really well maintained."

    Lovely garden if you have the weather to enjoy it. Good safe environment for your dog with a nice walk into bude . Parking is tricky as your right on a traffic calming chicane, There is a large volume of traffic as its a shot cut into bude avoiding the traffic jams. and sadly no one adheres to the 20mph speed limit many in excess of 30 to 40 racing to get through.. Our son was staying in Bude and on one night came for a meal in the local pub literally 100 yards from the cottage ( highly recommended) We were told we could park in front of the property however when my son tried to the next door neighbour came out and asked us not to park there as it cracked the concrete and when it rained the water went under his property. He has placed out plant pots to deter you from parking there.

    The road next to the property is very busy and nobody seems to take notice of the 20 mph speed limit,this can make it hazardous for pedestrians as there is no path ,other than that a nice base to explore Cornwall .

    The only downfall is, the back garden is lovely, but could do with some more solar powered lighting all the way down until the decking area. It doesn't have to be mega bright but just to find your way dawn the pathway. Otherwise the garden is lovely, like a magical mystery garden. Gardener needs to cut back a little.

    Amanda, Glad you enjoyed your stay at Easterly and a very good idea about the solar lights. I know the garden light reaches so far but solar lights would work well. Lee our gardener unfortunately hurt is back a few week ago so has been on restricted duties, but I am assured he is back now and all looking good once again. Hope to welcome you back at Easterly in the future. Property Owner

    It was just right for the two of us and Ivy the spaniel. There was everything we needed for a relaxing week in Cornwall and it was very dog friendly and the garden was safe and secure. I didn’t do a lot of cooking while there but cottage was well equipped. We were a little concerned about downstairs bathroom during the night but owner had thought of everything ( torches in drawers by the bed) . Handy having pub so local too. Would love to return when we get the chance. Ideal spot for visiting North Cornwall coast and Bude so close you can walk should you wish.

    We very much enjoyed our stay. The cottage is small but ample for 2 people. A real treat for us to have a tv in the bedroom. The kitchen is well equipped. The garden is totally secure and on the one day it was warm enough for us to sit out it was very peaceful. We managed to visit Padstow, Rock, Port Isaac, Fowey, Clovelly and Appledore over our weeks stay. Plenty to see! The cottage does sit on a road, and you can hear cars, but with the shutters closed it didn’t bother us at all. We have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

    We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    Not happy at all with this cottage panel in living room you can hear the neighbour through was not told this in the advert, towels at the property was not properly laundered , excess road noise outside property very difficult to get car out on to road not properly advertised Gardener just turned up at cottage was not informed of this when you rent a property its for private use you do not expect a gardener coming to carry out work in the garden this is not fair to the customer and not value for money could not recommend this property

    Thank .you for your feedback. Old cottages quite often have quirky layout especially when you book an attached cottage, the fact that you could hear our neighbour in his garden is a shame he lives alone and is not generally a noisy person - but it is his home. I have spoken to the caretaker regarding the towels, if you had notified her of this at the time, they would have been changed for you. The picture of the cottage shows it as being on a road and during peak season as with anywhere there is traffic. If you were having difficulty reversing off the drive you should have parked in the space in front of the cottage. In the literature I sent you before your holiday it stated that the gardener would visit during your stay. If you had informed me that you were not happy with this I would of cancelled him. He is only on site for a maximum of 1 hour, however, after you spoke to him he left. Maybe a detached cottage would be more suitable for you. Property Owner

  • "Nice period property."

    Head room low in parts in the upstairs bedroom. I’m 5ft 9 and several times when got out of bed, bonked my head on the angular wood beams. So any 6 footers take care. The kitchen was nicely laid out and well equipped but the timing control on the microwave was not very precise particularly at the lower settings. The lighting in extract fan unit had one failed lamp. The shower room was excellent and shower worked well. Lastly would like to see the entrance door lock improved as the mortice lock has a poor fitting and is weak.

    Thank you for your feedback I agree that head height is challenging, but that's what you get with old cottages! I have changed the microwave to the old style twist knob as some people in the past have had issues with the more modern digital one - its hard to know which to choose. There are spare bulbs for all lights and the extractor hood under the sink as explained in your welcome folder - this has now been replaced. Door lock has long been tricky - there used to be a 2nd lock on the door, but unfortunately guests had a habit of locking themselves out, so we had to remove it - however I understand that this needs addressing and I will be looking into a 2nd lock or maybe some bolts.

  • "Loved Bude The cottage is darker than the pictures (no real problem) There was a real smell of wet dogs though - on the carpet by the sofa - i have dogs but it was strong - perhaps the floor would be better to be wood so you can remove the smell better and whilst bedding was clean it had dog hairs ( hard to get out) on the bottom sheets - I would put a child gate on steps and not allow upstairs."

    Heating was storage heaters so only came on at night - in winter that would be cold?

    I am sorry that you smelt wet dogs. The carpets were professionally cleaned the week before you arrived and no dog had been in the property in between. Being a 400 year old cottage the windows are small and the walls very thick this may mean it can seem dark, especially as the weather was so bad for you, which is why we provided adequate lighting to suit all situations. Unfortunately, the age of the cottage means the floors are uneven and wooden flooring would not be suitable. Yes there is only night storage heaters for winter use which is adequate, however, we also provide the electric "log" effect stove, an oil filled radiator and electric radiators in bathroom and kitchen should you require for other months. Dogs upstairs is a personal choice and I agree dogs on the bed in the bedroom does not suit all, we do provide "dog" covers- we have to encourage people to use them. I hope these things and the weather did not spoil your stay at Easterly Cottage Property Owner

  • "Wonderful stay and the property itself is charming."

    We received a phone call a few days before we went to let us know that the gardener was late going due to illness/injury and would be coming a few days into our stay, which he did, but the overgrown plants etc around the parking space did initially make things a little tricky but as I said we were informed about this so it wasn't a big issue. It is obviously an old property with low ceilings so we did have a few bumped heads but of course this can't be helped and is our own fault for being so clumsy! Just mind your head if you are over 5'9 or so! A few points which didn't affect our stay but I did want to mention: - no recycling, we go through a lot of cans of fizzy pop and found the single black bin filled up very quickly - I think a mirror by the parking space would be great for assisting backing off the drive, I have a large car and you can't see properly to back off, although the road itself isn't super busy it was difficult to back off without being able to see oncoming traffic especially at night with limited lighting - The oven - we did try to use the main oven but previous occupants had obviously burnt something and left it resulting in a lot of smoke when we tried to cook, I did try and clear out as much as I could but the smoke persisted and I didn't want to set off the fire alarms so we just made do with the hobs, again not a huge issue just something that the cleaner may have overlooked Excellent points that deserve a mention: - the bottle of milk, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits upon arrival was a very welcome touch and we were very grateful - the covers provided for the furniture and bed were great - sometimes when you stay in a dog friendly property there is strict rules about them being on the furniture but I thought it was a lovely (and realistic!) idea to provide covers - The smart TVs were great and easy to use - Large and comfortable bed - Things like dishwasher tablets, a couple of toilet rolls, binbags, washing up liquid, hand soap etc were provided which was fantastic - There was a fan and a hair dryer which we were not expecting but made use of both! - Property was clean and well presented Overall a really lovely stay and we wouldn't hesitate to come back! Thank you :)

    Thoughtful with regard to dogs ie covers for couch and bed - realistic! Nice welcome pack, biscuits, milk, tea,coffee. Also good provision of extras such as washing up liquid, loo rolls,rubbish bags. The garden is small but charming. The decked area was sunny for most of the day - we ate our meals there. Loved the planting - very cottage garden. Although the cottage is on a road it is not busy and is still a quiet spot, especially in the garden. Sarah sent us information about the cottage and area prior to our arrival which was very helpful. We booked Sunday lunch at The Preston Gate which is a few hundred yards away. Wonderful food. . Only thing I would like is a small arm chair downstairs. Perhaps remove one of the small wooden tables? A very enjoyable and relaxing holiday and we will be back again. Thank you.

  • "We felt that Easterly Cottage was well placed for exploring North Cornwall and was comfortable."

    However, we were disappointed as we felt the photos of the property were a little misleading. Whilst we totally realise it's a listed building the photos made all the rooms quite bright. However, in reality they are dark and the lights were needed on even during the day. The bed was comfortable but felt both the pillows and duvet need replacing as both were fairly flat. We were asked by the owners to fully strip the bed and place everything in a plastic bag (which was provided to protect the cleaners from Covid) However, to my horror when we stripped the pillows a couple of them had yellow staining (such as happens when they are old and have been heavily used). The mattress also had marks on it. In light of covid and also the stringent measures the owner asked us to follow we were shocked that we had been sleeping on these pillows/mattress all week!! (there were pillow/mattress protectors but again we're of poorer quality). I felt quite sick at the thought of it found it unacceptable with Covid still circulating around. In light of this we are unable to provide a more positive feedback for Easterly Cottage.

    Thank you for leaving feedback on our cottage, I'm sorry you felt our pictures are misleading but as you say it is a 400 year old listed thatched cottage with small windows and on a gloomy day it will seem a little dim inside. Thank you for bringing the pillows to our attention. I have immediately contacted the current visitors and had them changed. I have also bought it to the attention of my cleaners, so this has now been addressed. Property Owner

We loved how dog friendly the cottage is as a lot of places claim to be dog friendly but then don’t allow dogs in certain areas or they’re not allowed on any furniture, but this cottage provides throws to enable dogs to go on the sofa and bed which was perfect for us! There is a pub that is only a 1 minute walk away and is a lovely pub (Preston Gate Inn). It’s worth mentioning that from the top of the garden you can see the sea which I think is a brilliant selling point! All in all, thoroughly recommend.

  • "This holiday cottage is very beautiful on the outside and inside, however there are several issues, 1."

    Road noise, although it’s a village location, it appears a rat run for lots of cars, even though there are speed bumps and road narrowing outside the cottage causing cars to stop and speed through the gap. 2. I know the cottage stated pets welcome, however the cottage smelt heavily of wet dog even though it was cleaned, the smell continued for our 2 week holiday, the smell did fade however once the carpet was hoovered the smell came back again with vigour. We had to buy febreze for dog odour and smelly candles and air fresheners. Finally the garden is raised and when I went up to explore I was confronted with dog mess, not cleaned by the previous occupants or cleaner/gardener, fair to say we didn’t go up again and I had to clean up other people’s dog mess. Not a good example of a skyes 4 star property.

    I am sorry that you had a bad experience at Easterly Cottage. It is very hard to control how people care for our cottage during their stay with dogs. I believe the week before you stayed was a very wet week and therefore it is inevitable that any dogs would be wet. In these difficult times, our cleaners are concentrating on ensuring the cottage is cleaned and sanitised because of Covid so it is hard for them to wash carpets within the window of time they have before you arrive. With regard to the dog mess, again this is down to the previous occupant. My gardener comes in during the week and therefore he would not off seen this. With regard to the road, I show the cottage in my pictures as on the road, and like most Cornish villages at this time of year it can become busy, which is why we had hand made shutters fitted in the bedroom to avoid possible disruption.

    The location is very convenient for exploring beyond Bude. We visited Clovelly, Port Isaac, Widemouth Bay and Padstow for example. Perfect for my husband and i and our dog. There was confusion over the check in time which was originally communicated as 3pm but we were told 4pm on the day of arrival. As check out is 10 am i would have expected an earlier check in time anyway. The information book in the Cottage also states 11 am departure time and 3 pm check-in time so there does seem to be a miscommunication between the owner and Sykes Cottages which can be easily remedied by both parties. Other than that we would return.

  • "Decided to take a late one week break on the wild North Cornwall coast with my dog and do some walking on the nearby South West Coastal Path."

    Easterly Cottage seemed to have just the right balance of character and amenities I was looking for, with its close proximity to the coast and being pet friendly. One always books these places with some trepidation and with the suspicion that there might be something horrible and undisclosed. It was with some relief and the most pleasant of surprises to find that Easterly Cottage is exactly as you would want it to be. Located within minutes of down town Bude and also several other more secluded but charming coastal locations. Its amenities are of excellent quality and comprehensive, all as described, so no further comment is required on that front. Clean and beautifully presented, it is a truly classic cottage. Characterful and charming throughout with its open fire place and exposed beams.............. and my favourite feature of all.............the balcony bedroom with a huge king sized bed. All this and,at the same time, blended tastefully with a modern kitchen and shower room. Whilst I rented the cottage for myself and the dog, it is most definitely a romantic, cosy "getaway from it all" sort of place and one that I will most certainly return to. Two minor points to mention....that in my opinion do not detract overall from the place are: 1 - Ploughill is clearly a rat run for traffic heading to and from Bude, so at certain times of the day the traffic noise is rather more than would otherwise be desirable. 2- Keeping the Log Burner alight can be a challenge. I am well used to log burners but if visitors are coming in the Autumn or Winter I suggest that you come armed with plenty of kindling and firelighters to throw at the thing to keep it going when it starts to flag! Neither of these are deal breakers but, for balance sake, need to be recorded. Highly recommended.

About the location


Tintagel 17 miles.

Bude is a fabulous coastal town that once visited you will want to come back to time and time again. Bude has something for everyone, great beaches for relaxing, and building sandcastles on, rockpools for investigating at low tide and cafes to watch it all from. The rolling waves are great for surfing all year round, and the footpaths by the restored canal or on the North Cornwall coastal path offer you a superb opportunity to explore and appreciate the outstanding countryside. Bude also has a superb golf course, indoor swimming pool, bowling alley/indoor play area and Heritage Centre at Bude Castle. It also has a good selection of local shops, supermarkets, cafes, pubs, restaurants and excellent Information Centre. Within a short drive are the remains of a huge iron age hill fort at Warbstow Bury, from where panoramic views can be seen. For days out, take the coast road north to see the lonely lighthouse above the sea at Hartland Point or walk or ride a donkey down the steep and cobbled village street (no cars allowed) of beautiful Clovelly to the harbour and the pub far below. Follow the coast in the other direction and there's the little cove of Crackington Haven, Boscastle, King Arthur's castle at Tintagel, Doc Martin's Port Wenn at Port Isaac and yet more great surfing beaches at Polzeath.
