Everything we needed was there, even spare toilet rolls. Great to see a good recycling system too. We were welcomed with a lovely fresh treat from the local bakers and a pint of milk. Set in a lovely area of Cornwall with easy links to the A30. Perfect. Reviewed by SusanMay 2022 "Absolutely a fantastic cottage with all amenities." Roger, the owner, was wonderful with plenty of advice on where to go and the best routes to use. Very helpful, there when you needed him but also giving plenty of space for you to be on your own. Definitely going back again next year. Outstanding! Thank you for your feedback and your kind comments..

The owners of the property are very friendly and accommodating, full of good tips and tricks for our visit. Ménage cottage was perfect for us and our little dog, who adored all the lovely outdoor space. I will 100% be recommending this cottage to friends and family! Thank you for your feedback and your kind comments. Property Owner Reviewed by SaffronApr 2022 "Perfect staycation." Ideal area for travelling to any coastline. Beautiful beaches and towns. Holiday cottage is the perfect place for peace, with everything to hand. One other chair would help in the lounge but ideal, clean place. Lovely cream tea on arrival. Nothing too much bother for the owner. Thank you for your feedback and your kind comments. Property Owner Reviewed by SandraApr 2022 "Superb cottage, Roger very welcoming, ideal location, good weather what else could you ask for." Thank you for your feedback and your kind comments. Property Owner Reviewed by SandraMar 2022 "Lovely and warm and cosy place, with everything we needed." Roger was a great host. Great place to stay for visiting some womderful places in Cornwall. Only one small negative is the place wasn't as clean as I would have liked but then I am extremely fussy when it's comes to things like that. Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased that you found Manege Cottage to be warm and cosy with everything you needed. We recall your comment about being the best cottage you had rented and found your very positive review in our visitors book along with your card - much appreciated . We recently fitted the cottage throughout with new carpets, new bedding and curtains in the bedroom. In regard to cleanliness, we have since been over the place thoroughly and have found all to be in good order. Property Owner Reviewed by VeronicaJan 2022 "This is a cosy, spacious, well-equipped cottage in a very peaceful location, though only a few minutes drive from the A30." Roger, the owner was friendly and welcoming and the Cornish treat on arrival was delicious. The cottage was clean and the rooms were 'proper' rooms - i.e. the bathroom and kitchen were not squeezed into tiny spaces, which we have experienced in other holiday lets. There was instantaneous hot water and a good shower. The property exceeded our expectations. Thank you for your feedback and your kind comments. Property Owner Reviewed by BernardOct 2021 "Beautiful Cottage In a nice quiet location." Cottage had everything you could want and need, even down to the Cream Tea the owner Roger provided, lovely surprise. Easy access to beaches and towns. Roger very friendly when we bumped into him, also very knowledgable. He suggested the local pub the Chiverton Arms which was just down the road. We had a great Sunday Roast there. We also tried the Miners Arms for a meal, which was another of Roger's recommendations. We even managed to meet Helga the horse, she was very friendly. We spent hours watching her in the adjacent field. We would definitely consider going again at some point. Reviewed by MalcolmOct 2021 "The owner, Roger was very helpful with suggestions where to walk, our main interest." He was not intrusive, but always had time for a chat if he saw us around the property. The cottage was ideally placed to get around Cornwall. One thing that could have been mentioned in the literature was the bus service from the top of the road. This was very useful for us pensioners and saved a considerable amount on parking fees, Reviewed by PhilipJun 2021 "We liked the light and bright accommodation with a good sense of space, the fact it was on one level with easy access for luggage." Kitchen was very well equipped, had lots of cupboard space for guests food and we appreciated the supply of basics tea, sugar etc. The central heating was very efficient and kept us warm and comfortable during cold evenings and mornings. The bed was comfortable and the bedroom had loads of cupboard space. The wetroom bathroom was spacious and worked well. We appreciated the very recent wide screen TV. We enjoyed the lovely garden and quiet, green and pleasant rural surroundings and the private patio area with modern gas barbecue (although we didn't use it). The host Roger was very welcoming and friendly and quickly sorted out a minor problem with the TV. There were good facilities for exercising the dog. The cottage is just 3 miles from St. Agnes for shops and beach and just 5 miles from Truro. Many of Cornwall's attractions are easy to reach. We definitely intend to go back. Reviewed by JohnApr 2021 "Great stay." Thoroughly recommend staying at Manege Cottage Reviewed by DanOct 2020 "A lovely little retreat with almost everything one could wish for." We would recommend the cottage as a base. Roger was welcoming and helpful, it was nice to know that he was there in the background if you wanted anything. From a personal point of view a small armchair/tub chair would fit nicely into the lounge alongside the kitchen wall and by the conservatory door to allow flexibility of sitting .....the sofa, whilst comfortable, is quite small forcing people to sit together. Reviewed by LawrenceOct 2020 "We had a lovely week in this beautiful cottage." It was very spacious, quiet, comfortable & well equipped. The owner was on site ready to help if required. We'd recommend it to everyone. Thanks Reviewed by CliffOct 2020 "We enjoyed our stay at Manege cottage it was in a nice rural peaceful setting, the cottage was pleasantly furnished with a very comfy bed." It was a nice surprise to find scones with clotted cream and jam on arrival. We found it a good central base to travel the places we wanted to go Reviewed by AdrianSep 2020 "We found it a little ridiculous that there was only 2 of everything - 2 cups, plates, knives, forks etc." We were constantly washing up. Thank you for your feedback: I am afraid many properties have followed guidance to reduce crockery and cutlery this season in order to make cleaning kitchen items more efficient this season (due to Coronavirus).

It was a very relaxing holiday and it was lov9to come back to the cottage every day. Reviewed by SianMay 2019 "Just returned from a week spent in Manege Cottage and it was exactly as described by Sykes Cottages." It was a lovely, clean and comfortable cottage in a great location for exploring both the north and south coast lines of Cornwall. Host Roger and his son Justin were most welcoming and indeed the Cornish cream tea on arrival was a very welcome treat after such a long drive. They both made myself, my grand daughter and our little dog very welcome allowing our doggie to wander freely around the extensive and well stocked gardens. Roger is a mine of information, suggesting places to visit and actually showing us one very local cliff top walk with breath taking views that I would never have found myself. The local pub at the end of the road, The Chiverton Arms is a very friendly quirky pub with an excellent menu and the portions are huge. We visit Cornwall quite often and think in future Manege Cottage will be our base, highly recommend.
