There are also lovely views of the sea, the morning sunrise is a treat at this time of year, with some of the trees between the apartment and the sea having shed their leaves there is more of the sea to see! We were rather unlucky during our stay in that the road that runs alongside the apartment was being resurfaced which meant that our cars were trapped behind the road works for literally hours at a time. We couldn’t risk leaving it until the final morning to start our journeys home so we had to leave early unfortunately. When I was about to leave and pulled my car out of the garage I got in trouble with a local resident for choosing to pack the boot of my car outside the garage (it was dark in the garage). I also picked up a few annoyed comments from some of the local residents during our stay, I’m not sure whether they were irritated by tourists staying into the winter or whether they were simply exasperated by the disruption caused by the road resurfacing works. Our cars were appropriately tucked away at all times apart from when we first arrived and when we finally left, and as is always the case when we stay at Sykes Cottages were we very considerate to our neighbours. The unfortunate circumstances of the days in which we stayed aside, I would recommend this apartment as it is very thoughtfully decorated, furnished and fitted out, it is very suitable for two friends, and the cleaners clearly do a very good job, thank you.

The apartment is of ideal location with so many places nearby to visit. The apartment itself is just lovely, its clean and comfortable and we enjoy staying there so much. It has everything that you need, if not more. Duporth beach that is just a short distance makes the apartment extra special as some mornings we had it all to ourselves.

Communication with Natasha,the Host, was always good, even updated Natasha regarding the dvd player which was faulty, always nice to have a back up when the weather changes in Cornwall. Would happily re book to stay here again. Reviewed by Rosemarie5.0★Jul 2023 "Perfect holiday apartment." Great location with a short walk down to the beach or along the cliff path to Charlestown. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped, we particularly appreciated the quantity of glasses and mugs so we didn't need to keep washing up! We really enjoyed opening the bifold doors to the balcony and looking at the view. We had 2 cars but had no problem parking the second car on the road right by the apartment building. Reviewed by Jo5.0★Jun 2023 "We would suggest you recommend taking a pint of milk as after a 4 hour journey all we wanted was a cup of tea." We have stayed at numerous self catering properties where milk at least is in the fridge. We appreciate the owners are not on site but perhaps the cleaners remit could include this or directions to the nearest convenience shop We only found superstores in St Austell to be the nearest?

I was so sad to go home Reviewed by Derek5.0★Aug 2022 "The property was exceptional, clean, very comfortable and spacious."

Reviewed by Chris5.0★Jun 2022 "Absolutely lovely apartment, spotlessly clean and as for the equipment in the kitchen, only once before have I rented holiday accommodation anywhere that catered for all our needs and of the best quality throughout." Sometimes when you have booked a property it looks great on paper but when you arrive it’s tired but NOT this property . Excellent Communication with the owners and clear instructions about the property. This was our first holiday in 3 years due to COVID (we are of a certain age) and it was a pleasure to return each evening from our excursions.Due to unexpected circumstances we sadly had to leave Cornwall 3 days early but I would not hesitate to recommend this property and we hope to come again. Reviewed by Bridget5.0★Jun 2022 "Lovely spacious property, well equipped, clean and comfortable." Good location for visiting places of interest by car but also a quiet peaceful stay with coastal walking available from property. Tea coffee and sugar all available but a pint of milk in fridge would have been appreciated for the first quick cuppa. Garage a tight squeeze for VW golf but plenty parking on road.

We didn't need to leave the apartment! Reviewed by Alison5.0★Oct 2021 "Have stayed here before so already knew how fabulous the place is." The elevator failed on day 4 which wasnt a problem for us but I can see it might be a problem for others. It wasnt fixed by day 7 when we left. It also failed during our stay last year so this may need attention. Apart from that cant recommend it enough. The garage is a nice convenience to dry wet brollies or other outdoor clothing. 10/10 Reviewed by Martin5.0★Sep 2021 "Great apartment and very pleased with the facilities and resources made available." Private (residents) access to beach a real bonus. Reviewed by Moira5.0★Jul 2021 "This is a very modern, well equipped, clean, spacious and comfortable apartment." The garage is huge and there is enough space for another car to park in front of the garage. It has a sea view and is located in a fabulous quiet location within walking distance of Charlestown where there are lots of places to eat good quality food. There is also a beach which is only accessible to residents which was very quiet. Tesco and Lidl are a very short drive away so easy to obtain supplies. Also close to the Eden Project and other local attractions and coastal walks. The walk back from Charlestown and the beach is quite steep. Would highly recommend this property.. Reviewed by Trudy5.0★Jun 2021 "Fabulous apartment - spotlessly clean and well equipped." A great position to explore from. Reviewed by Jody5.0★Oct 2020 "Very well appointed." This is the third property we have stayed in at clock tower court but this is the best. The most space, the best views and the best quality equipment in the flat. Even the mugs and cutlery are high quality. This makes the place feel more special. The garage is a nice convenience as it’s massive but I can see some people wouldn’t like the tight reverse through the garage door opening. There’s lots of easy street parking so I don’t think it’s a negative. Also worth mentioning is the whole place was cleaned and disinfected to a very high standard. I expected to re clean at least some of the property but this wasn’t necessary. Top marks to the cleaning crew. Reviewed by Martin5.0★Oct 2020 "Everything was brilliant would visit again." Reviewed by Tracy5.0★Sep 2020 "This was a second stay here and we loved it as much as the first time." Hopefully there will be a third time. It's a great apartment. Home from home really. Reviewed by Marianne4.7★Aug 2020 "Stunning, we have been visiting Cornwall for many years and I have to say this has been my number one accommodation." The owners have not spared the expense of top quality furnishings, fittings and have everything you need in the kitchen. I have never felt so relaxed on any holiday home or abroad. The private beach is clean and we had no problems with social distancing, we even found a small waterfall (be warned it’s a steep slope down but worth it) I will definitely be booking again and recommend to friends and family and for people who find stairs difficult there is a lift! Reviewed by Jackie5.0★Aug 2020 "This is a beautiful apartment with everything we could wish for a relaxing and comfortable holiday." It is very well appointed and tastefully furnished, the bi-fold doors and French door in the main bedroom were much appreciated as it was a very warm week. It is ideally situated for visiting the Eden Project and the Lost Garden of Heligan and other National Trust gardens. This is our second visit and we will definitely be back. Reviewed by Sally5.0★Jun 2019 "A very well equipped and comfortable apartment in a delightful position." Being on the top floor the benefit of a lift was much appreciated at all times adding to the attraction of the apartment. Charlestown being just a short walk away and having a number of eateries to choose from made dining out a car-free pleasure. Extensive building work is going on opposite although in fairness we had been warned of this by the owners and have to say that it did not affect our enjoyment of the holiday though we suspect some people could find the constant workmen activity and number of cars parked on the road a problem finding somewhere to park themselves if they were unable to put their vehicle in the garage which has a very narrow access. Some previous holidaymaker had bent the garage door key making it difficult to use, in fact whilst we were still able to use the garage to park the car we did not lock the door after we had opened it on arrival as we were concerned about unlocking it to get our car out! Access to the beach and the South West Coast Path was good and directions received from the owners could not be faulted. All in all the pluses far outweighed the minuses and we would certainly consider booking again and recommending it to friends. Reviewed by Michael4.4★Jun 2019 "Sadly the weather was somewhat 'inclement' but no-one has control over that!" It was nice to know we had somewhere clean and comfortable to return to at the end of the day.The accommodation was excellent. Everything we needed - even a garage to put the car in! The balcony was a real bonus as when the sun did break out it was lovely to have an outside space to sit out. Quiet too. There was building work going on on the other side of the apartment building but I can't say that it bothered us at all except that the roads were a little congested with the works vans but having the garage meant that there was no problem with parking. Restaurants and eating places in Charlestown were excellent - particularly the Pier Head Hotel - wonderful service. Good location to visit lots of the popular sights around Cornwall. Unfortunately no small shop for emergencies so it was a short car journey to Tesco, Asda or Lidl. Weather aside, everything else was excellent. Reviewed by Mo5.0★Jun 2019 "This apartment is lovely with beautiful views of the sea." It only has a couple of very minor issues which is why it is not the super smiley face for facilities. In the main bedroom it could do with much thicker curtains as the courtyard is brightly lit at night and so therefore is your bedroom. The second is the washer/dryer is not very good and really needs replacing and the third and last is that the owners have provided lovely plates, glasses and cutlery and then let it down with cheap plastic cooking utensils. Everything else in the apartment is spotlessly clean, bright and airy. The apartment is much bigger than I thought from the photos so that was a very pleasant surprise. There is some building work going on across the way but that did not disturb us in fact it was a lovely distraction for the grown up boys. We had a lovely week and I would not hesitate to recommend. Reviewed by Kim4.7★Apr 2019 "We were never told that the apartment was immediately opposite a major building site." The noise from the working was very unfortunate, especially as they started at 7am every day. We would have loved a lie in on at least one of the days, but no. The noise was too great - apart from the Sunday. We also noticed that other guests had experienced the same problem as they wrote so in the visitors book. Apartment would have been great if if wasn't for this. Everything else worked well. Reviewed by John4.1★Apr 2019 "On many self catering holidays, you discover that something is missing." Ian and Natasha provided everything sensibly possible! I do hope that nobody abuses this in future. Everything was clean and operational. We loved the views and the quietness at night. Reviewed by Mark5.0★Mar 2019 "We loved our stay at Clock Tower Court, the apartment is exactly like the photographs on the website." The furnishing are lovely. The kitchen appliances were ultra quiet and everything you could need was in the kitchen if you wanted to cook. We lovely our stay in Duporth and will definitely go back. Reviewed by Elaine5.0★Oct 2018 "The apartment was central to all the interesting places in Cornwall." The lovely quiet beach is a short walk from the apartment. All in all we would give the holiday 101 out of 100. Reviewed by A5.0★Oct 2018 "An exceptional apartment and fabulous location." A real home from home. We will definitely revisit.

This is by far the best property we have stayed in, we were so impressed we have already booked for next year. As it was so hot the bi-fold doors in the living room and French door in the double bedroom a wonderful feature helping to keep us cool. A lovely holiday in a brilliant apartment.

Reviewed by Wendy5.0★Jan 2017 "My holiday was as stress free as anyone could expect." The location was ideal for my aim of enjoying a week of relaxation and some outdoor activity, with my wife readily pulling on her walking shoes. Being just off the South West Coast Path, this was perfect for walks to both eastward and westward locations. If we had wanted an easy outdoor day, there was the opportunity of a stroll on the private beach, just 5 minutes walk from the apartment. The weather, also, played a part with my intention to photograph parts of the area, enjoying relative warmth in the early November sun. After a full day walking / photography it was good to settle down in the apartment, relaxing after dinner then reviewing the images taken during the day. With the benefit of a washer/dryer the clothes could be clean and dry with minimal fuss, ready for another day. After a week, Saturday morning saw the car packed for the journey home, taking with us many wonderful memories. Reviewed by Peter5.0★Oct 2016 "Choosing the ideal accommodation is always the hardest part when arranging a holiday in an area you do not know." Sykes majes it easier because of their clear concise website. After booking they keet in touch and help you plan in advance to make your journey and arrival straightforward.
