  • "We loved staying here as the chalet was cosy, very well equipped and beds were comfy."

    We didn't find the wi-fi code until we were writing in the visitor book the morning we were leaving, so maybe putting it somewhere more noticeable would be good.

  • "We had a pleasant, relaxing stay and would be happy to come back."

    Owner was very responsive. The property is great for a small family and well located for day trips and to pop into Liskeard for supplies

  • "Had an amazing stay at the Villa."

    The villa was gorgeous, super clean, had everything you needed, with sound system and cool varieties of board games being the highlight. 6 mins drive from Liskeard town located in a peaceful locality. Great communication from Sykes Cottages throughout. Highly recommend.

  • "Our visit was to be able to spend some time with my Step Dad in Callington who we hadn’t been able to see during the pandemic, we now have a dog so had to find some where nearby and pet friendly, this lovely bungalow was perfect, well equipped, very clean, home from home, will most likely book again later in the year, now we know it is here!"

  • "Really nice quiet location, cosy and comfortable."

    Great base to explore Cornwall. Woods nearby which our dog loved!

  • "A lovely place to stay, quiet and secluded but close enough to the town for shopping and essentials."

    Nice clean property, well kept, and everything we needed was there. Our first experience with an air fryer as well, we'll definitely get one of those in the near future. We'd definitely come again.

    Cottage had all the facilities and looked exactly as advertised in pics. Perfect location to reach different places in Cornwall and Devon. Would highly recommend.

    It was a really good base to visit different parts of Cornwall.

  • "Lovely cottage/bungalow/chalet?"

    what ever it's called it's lovely. There is not a lot to do at the actual location however. It is an excellent base to head out of everyday to go to the various wonders that Cornwall has to offer. Nothing is really too far a drive, and the town of Liskeard itself is literally 5 minutes drive away, 1 road, super easy to get to. Looe is also very nice, and again not too far by car or train. The beach at Looe is not dog friendly though.

  • "We really enjoyed staying g here, it was like a home from home."

    It had all of your creature comforts. It was clean and some lovely touches left for you, should you want them, lime biscuits etc. We will definitely be back. Thank you very much for our stay.

    Spotlessly clean. Really well stocked. Tastefully decorated with a seaside theme. Comfortable and cosy.

  • "The cottage had everything we needed apart from larger saucepans and possibly a 4 slice toaster if you were a family visiting."

    The photos did not show how close you are to the bungalow next door, but other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We probably will not revisit until the Village Inn is restored but would recommend the village to others for lovely surroundings and cleanliness.

  • "This was our first visit with our dog and we found an excellent, well equipped and comfortable cottage."

    The cleanliness was 5 star. The site is in the perfect location to enable visits to the beautiful cornish beaches and surrounding areas. The WiFi speed was excellent. We highly recommend the holiday cottage.

  • "The good points."

    Property was clean and well equipped, the owners family was helpful. The bad points The sofas were very soft, and were difficult to get up from, the beds were metal frame & sprung and were OK but not great. However the worst thing is that the advert was wrong on a number of points. A) Fishing has not been available at nearby Rosecraddoc Manor for approx. 18 Months!!! This was one of my search criteria. B) The WiFi was unusable I had to stand outside another bungalow approx 75 yards away to connect, by the time I got back to Ballasalla it kept dropping out every couple of seconds. Another of my search criteria. C) The pub which was within 0.2 miles was not open and had not been since last year, this was disappointing as we would have used this.

  • "Although I contacted you regarding the availability of WIFI after reading previous negative feedback and an assurance that the wifi had been sorted out there was still no wifi."

    The owner sent me the password to log in and actually sent a picture with a star on it showing where to stand outside the bungalow next door to get a signal. The owner next door has installed their own receiver and they told us it was the only way they ever got a signal. The bungalow itself was immaculate and faultless in a beautiful location.

  • "Directions could be more helpful."

    Turn left into the drive of the white cottage would be more accurate. The left turn is a road which leads to a farm and a different set of cottages. Clear

    Central to many parts of Cornwall. Would suit small young family to elderly couples.

  • "Both my partner and I were delighted with the Bungalow."

    The facilities there are absolutely first class. More home from home and so clean and tidy it was far more than we both expected. The site was also very clean and well laid out. I have already made some recommendations to friends and family. I would stress that unless holiday makers enjoy walking a car is essential, to us it was an excellent base from which we were able to travel around Cornwall. That is something we usually do whenever on holiday. Overall, we recommend a FIVE STAR RATING.
