  • "It was a shame that such a nicely refurbished cottage in such a great location had so little in the way of a welcome or that some of the basics had been checked ."

    No tea bags or coffee for that first cuppa, no logs for the fire on a bitterly cold and wet night. Only one loo roll for the whole week; no dishwasher tablets or anything to wash up with. Missing light bulb in sitting room. We did contact Sykes before writing this but were told it’s up to the owner what they provide and got no further answers. We were then asked if we’d be available from 7.00 am on day of departure for an electrician to call …. We left the day before as a 6.00 pm arrival and 9.00 am departure seems to imply it’s more for their convenience than the customers .

    I was last at this cottage back in the late 1950s early sixties with my parents, we came several times and it was always magical. Of course long before the renovations but it still holds the magic.

    Nice little garden if you're there at the right time of year. St Agnes is a lovely village and well located to visit the rest of west Cornwall.

    A couple of things could have been better, a hairdryer, bigger cereal bowls and 6pm availability was a bit much. Overall our experience was good and would readily return for another visit.

    The only downfall was the chairs weren’t to comfortable when you were having an evening in. We would definitely stay in this cottage again. It was perfect.

  • "The cottage was delightful and in a great position- allocated parking a real bonus."

    However we experienced problems with both TV’s twice during our stay. Owner was very helpful but the problems remained unresolved even after engineer visit which meant missing the big football match - not happy about that. Should also mention an initial problem with cooker as it had a child lock on it and this needed to be disabled before use - not shown in manual.

    All amenities are a stroll away and if you just want to relax the little garden is secluded and attractive. We even had the company of a nightingale one night.

  • "We had a lovely stay at 2 Rose Cottage."

    The cottage was very comfortable for 2 people with everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean too. We really enjoyed the welcome cream tea and appreciated the pint of milk, teabags etc on arrival. The fittings were to a very high standard. Good quality china, towels and bedding. The shower water pressure was fantastic. It is nestled between 3 very local pubs and a 10 minute downhill stroll to the beach. The local shops have everything you need, butcher, baker, fish and chips, mini store etc and some great local restaurants and pubs serving food all within walking distance. It is a 5 minute drive from Perranporth beach and centrally located for drives to nearby towns and villages. Only one thing missing in the cottage, in my opinion, a hairdryer. Also If you are not good with stairs and hills you may find this location a little too much for you but for anyone else I would thoroughly recommend the cottage and location, especially if you have a dog. There are some amazing coastal walks on your doorstep.

  • "I didn't get the code email for the key, however when I called Sykes they were very helpful and sorted within seconds."

    Cottage ideally place, quiet, yet the location is perfect for local pubs, restaurants and of course the amazing beaches, cliff walks and views. I have family locally, so can recommend the area more than most - one point a few minutes walk from the cottage is The Green Rooms cafe - amazing breakfast you must tell other guests

  • "Our second time at Rose cottages, lovely as last time great location."

    Only a couple of things the previous house guests had turned of every single fuse including the hot water so we didn’t have any to arrive to, this should be checked each arrival and also we weren’t left any dish cloths or an oven glove, which would be helpful. Apart from that wonderful stay.

  • "Enjoyed a great few days at the cottage."

    It’s well located and very well equipped with good quality items. We had our small dog with us and found the woodland path as described. The garden has been gravelled since the photo - which is an excellent idea. We would certainly book it again and recommend it to others. Just a couple of things to note - towels are provided but I would advise bringing your own bath towel as the ones provided include a hand towel and a guest towel which is medium size. It would be useful to have a few more microwaveable dishes and the cereal bowls are very small. We bought some bathroom cleaner / bleach as none is provided. But those are really only tiny niggles as the cottage was really lovely.

    The cottage is located brilliantly for town and beach access, with St. Agnes being just the loveliest of locations

    Everything we wanted and more. Small and cosy as you would expect from a coastal cottage but done up to a high standard. Nice extra touches to make you feel welcome. Small garden but looks into a small wooded area ideal for the dog. Fantastic spot close to beach and village and plenty of eating places a stones throw away. Would definitely return.

  • "Day of arrival, ok 16:00 check in is quite late but we were aware of this as it clearly says beforehand."

    On arriving at 16:15 we were told by a slightly irate cleaner that the time had been moved to 18:00 because she has had a busy day, end of! So myself, wife and our 4 year old stood in shock for a moment not really knowing what to do next as we already had been on the beach after a 5 hour journey awaiting our check in time. Not the ideal start to moving a car load of belongings in after a long day and settling down to eat, and relax especially with our young son. This I'm afraid is down to bad management. If the workload exceeds the one cleaner then additional staff should be employed. To be sprung with an 18:00 check in time on the day of arrival is not acceptable. One other thing, which is beyond your control but maybe can be addressed through the council is the passageway which leads up to the road and where the car is parked just outside number one and two Rose cottages. This passageway is really only used by these two cottages but running along it is the wall of number two Gothic cottages. This wall has a hole at the bottom just outside the gate leading to Rose cottages. Each morning the occupants of this cottage let their two dogs out their back door and subsequently go through the gap and fowl on the passageway. Not the nicest thing to see each day and navigate our four year old round. Had to clear it to the sides each day. Only caught the culprits in action on the morning of leaving as I was loading the car early. If the owners of these two dogs were on holiday then we were just unlucky to be there the same time but if they are actually residential there, then I hope action can be taken as they obviously have no regard for anyone but themselves. Thanks. Anyway, we had a lovely holiday. The cottage is such a typical quant Cornish abode. There was everything inside we could need. The furniture wasn't the comfiest but apart from that couldn't fault it. The lady who owns it has a wonderful rental property. This was our second year in St Agnes as we enjoy the authenticity of the place. We holiday in Cornwall virtually every year and will be coming back again next year, somewhere different but hopefully somewhere as nice. Thanks for listening to our concerns as we would never go out the way to complain but I'm sure you would agree about the check in and also would take note about others filthy lifestyle.

  • "The cottage is accessed by some extremely steep steps which if you had mobility issues would cause difficulty."

    Situated adjacent to a pub which was noisy in the evenings with customers sitting outside till late. This was not a problem for us and the pub did serve very nice food. We liked the location in the village and the cottage is nicely appointed generally with off street parking for a medium car. Unfortunately, the photos of the furniture in the living room on the listing do not represent the room as it now is. I believe these may be photos taken when the property was first furnished.There is a different dining table and the seating looks very nice on the listing; however,it is now well used. It is grubby, and the wadding in the cushions has clumped. It is not just 'a personal preference', my whole family found it very uncomfortable and it gave me backache. Also, the sofa/chair only seat three when it is listed as a four person cottage. I trust that the owner will accept this constructive criticism of the furniture, as there are now a number of reviews commenting on how uncomfy it is. If this was replaced I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

  • "To get to the house you park in a small lay-by close to the row of 3 cottages and then have to go down some steep steps and through 2 gates to get to the front door."

    The garden is lovely and secluded from public view, but the properties are next door to a pub which was very noisy with people drinking and shouting outside until the small hours and then deliveries/ bottles being recycled early in the morning. The seating in the living room isn’t very comfortable and there is no curtain or blind in the bathroom window which is not opaque and faces directly on to the busy road and walkway a couple of metres away. It only took a couple of unwanted whistles before my husband set about fashioning shutters from a cardboard box. Whilst this preserved our modesty, it also took away the natural light, so not ideal. The bed was very comfortable, but much smaller than our bed at home, prompting me to go and sleep in one of the bunk beds when it was a particularly hot night. The cottage is in a great location for both the beach and the village centre with lots of nice shops and plenty of lovely places to eat.

  • "The cottage, the location where both fine, however this property is not dog friendly, it's barely dog tolerant."

    Most dog owners are sensible people and know how to behave in other peoples property, the don't need signs, telling them what they can and can't do. Also the description is less than accurate. i.e A 15 inch stone wall does not constitute a enclosed garden, also signs on the small lawn saying no dogs is ridiculous, basically we couldn't let the dog in the garden off lead. I would suggest that the owners either change their attitude toward dogs or remove it from "Dog Friendly" listing. Mac Sibley.

    The property was warm, well cared for and in good condition. The owners offered cream tea, milk and flowers on arrival which was much appreciated. The sofa and chair was not particularly comfortable - this is a very very minor opinion. The torch was a must when going outside in St Agnes on an evening. We used the local pubs (which also allow dogs), the village shops provided all we needed and more and there are some great walks in and around St Agnes and beyond. We loved the wide open beaches for us and the dog. We would highly recommend the property for couples especially.
