  • "Beautiful village location and the cottage was bright and airy."

    However, on arrival, we noticed the living room and kitchen floors were not very clean and there were crumbs under the place mats on the dining table. We found the bathrooms a bit cramped but good to have a toilet upstairs. The bed frame was broken with unsuccessful attempt at repair but mattress was comfortable. The top of the headboard and bedside tables and lamps were dirty and bathroom floors not clean. The whole cottage just felt a bit 'tired' and we expected a higher standard from a Sykes '4 tick' rating.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay at our cottage as we appreciate all helpful feedback from our guests. By definition, cottages are often compact but believe that Sykes's description and accompanying photographs accurately represents our cottage however we were pleased to note that you appreciated the addition of the upstairs en-suite toilet. We are very surprised and saddened to read your comments about cleanliness as we have a wonderful and trusted team of housekeepers who have been with us for 2 + years and have passed your comments onto them. Had we been made aware by yourself (or the previous guests) that there was an issue with the bed during your stay we would have addressed that or any other issues immediately. Our welcome email sent to all our guests is accompanied by our "House Guide" ( a copy of which is also in the cottage ) and notes 5 emergency contact numbers which we encourage our guests to call should they need any assistance of any kind. In response to your comment that the cottage looked " a bit tired" ; The cottage was completely refurbished in 2021 , the outside of the was property repainted in Autumn 2022 and internally throughout in March 2023 . We are delighted to note that you found St Tudy to be beautiful village. Property Owner

  • "Soon after booking this property, I was contacted by the owner with a very comprehensive and detailed house guide."

    The property owner was happy to answer any queries and was very helpful and accommodating. When we arrived at the property, we were delighted to see that it had been decorated for Christmas. This was a real surprise and felt it was a lovely touch. The cottage was extremely clean and comfortable and is situated in a central position in the village. Being able to sit in the window every day and admire the view of the church and village Christmas tree was wonderful. Around the corner from the cottage is a beautiful pub which is definitely worth a visit. The cottage itself is very cosy with all the facilities you need. I am hoping to visit again very soon! Thank you.

  • "We have recently had a very enjoyable stay in the lovely and extremely clean, comfortable Kerslake Cottage ."

    We feel it’s an ideal cottage for 2 adults and up to 2 children, due to there being bunk beds in the second bedroom and a compact bathroom. There are no wardrobes but there is adequate space for hanging your clothes and there is one large chest of drawers on the landing . The kitchen is very well stocked . The cottage is tastefully decorated and very cosy and quiet . The pretty Village of St Trudy is very quiet and peaceful, it has a well stocked village shop and post office with its own coffee shop and a lovely friendly Inn . At the time we visited it was not serving food but does have a very comfortable looking restaurant. We highly recommend this Cottage and Village to anyone looking for peace and tranquillity and looking for a central place in which to explore many of Cornwalls places of interest.
