  • "I was promised a returned call as I had a "special request" for my booking, I got a clarification call within an hour which I thought was great service."

    All booking emails were sent as promised and information clear and concise re check in and out times along with any items I needed to take with us. Cottage was immaculate presented with everything we needed for a great holiday.

  • "Fabulous place ."

    Amazing views. Very comfortable beds. Use of patio with those views was priceless . The beach was very dog friendly which we very much wanted . Excellent well stocked kitchen with everything thought of. Spotlessly clean and very modern. Would recommend to couples and families . No shop locally so just make sure you bring your provisions and you will have a fabulous break.

  • "The property is cosy and has great views."

    I was very happy with it. However the allocated parking space is only suitable for a compact car. If it had been peak season and someone had parked next to us I would have not been able to park there as it was too narrow to open either car door.

    Thanks for the feedback David. We are sure you can appreciate that space is at a premium this close to the coast. FYT we’ve had customers with VW transporters with no problem. We hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "I loved everything about Gull Rock."

    The one thing I would recommend, but in no way a criticism, would be to get some kind of free sat for the tv. After a day out or on the beach it would be nice to be able to relax watching a bit of TV without watching on catch up or not at all if the wifi drops. Regardless of that I would and will be booking again.

    David we are so pleased you and your mum enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the feedback on the live TV, we will investigate further. We hope to see you both again soon. Property Owner

  • "This apartment is simply stunning!"

    The beds and sofa are comfy, the place was spotless with great amenities, but the show stopper is the location! The apartment has incredible views over the sea, and the terrace gives you the best seat in the house every night for stunning sunsets. We literally couldn’t believe our luck to have stayed in such an amazing place. There is a lovely cafe and a nice beach shop, and the pub (which serves great food) is just a couple of minutes walk. We have had many happy years holidays all over Cornwall, but nothing has come even close to Gull Rock for location, comfort and views. We would come back year after year- I can not recommend enough.

    Wow - what a fantastic review Samantha. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and would love to see you again soon. Property Owner

    There is a cafe opposite, open in seasonal months, the Port William just above the apartment and the Mill House about half a mile up the road. There is no need to walk far as you are provided with 2 outdoor spaces, great to sit and watch the tides, surfers and people. Can't think of a better place to stay and will be back soon.

    Wowzers Christine, what a fantastic review we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and that you love Gullrock as much as us. We hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

    It was super clean, beautifully decorated with all you’d need for a week away. And the location. My goodness, you couldn’t get any better. One the best little beaches on this coast literally on the doorstep and a lovely little surf shop opposite selling yummy local ice cream. The beach isn’t accessible at high tide but that didn’t bother us as. Amazing cliff top walks from the doorstep as well. Communication with the owners was great too. Just perfect. Thank you.

    Surf shop and cafe over the road. Pub within stones throw and the roaring sea at your doorstep. It’s impeccably clean, hard to imagine this is dog friendly! Beautifully finished, it’s crazy to think this used to be a donut shop! You would never know. Already planning our return next year. Would highly recommend this to anyone, couples, families and even wheelchair friendly as the house is one level and has its own seating area so no need to struggle down to the beach. Had the best trip with amazing people at my favourite place in the world.

    The Port William pub just up the hill was lovely, great food, service bit slow, but due to having to log onto their wi fi to order. The beach is great, though I would check the tides before booking as you can't get onto the beach when the tide is in.

    Gull is one of the best we have rented, it is in a wonderful location, with view from inside to the sea plus private outside space where you can sit out and eat or just laze looking at the views. the sea has a wonderful sandy beach when tide is out, for the area you need to be reasonably fit, to get to the sea you have to make your way over the rocks, you have cliff walks either side of the where you stay. a few minutes away is the prince william pub which offers good food and very helpful pleasant staff with outdoor seating looking of the bay. The accomadation at Gull is excellent very clean beautifully dressed lots of thought had been put into making this let very special. It is very relaxing ideal for 2-4 people. The owners met us and ensured we knew where every thing was, making a stressful break.

  • "Gull Rock is the perfect holiday home for a short or longer break."

    When we arrived the owner welcomed us and showed us around - all very friendly and welcoming. The facilities, décor and general ambience exceeded our expectations and the apartment was very clean. Very easy to move into and move out of quickly and without any fuss which is so important for a short break (we had 4 early April nights) The most brilliant thing is the location - right on the cove and immediately adjoining the rocks and beach at low tide. Not only did the apartment have everything we wanted, the pub is adjacent where a full breakfast is available, a café (in season) and a friendly shop (both directly opposite) the cliff path is outside your door and we walked up to see the fabulous views, so if you want a total rest there is no need to leave! We visited various places all around (book a table a Nathan Outlaw's fabulous fish restaurant in Port Isaac if you want a special treat) take the passenger ferry from Rock to Padstow, drive down the windy lanes to tiny coves - there are endless things to see. The outside space is expansive with direct uninterrupted sea views and we would definitely return for a summer holiday to make the most of all it has to offer. When we arrived home we even had an email from the owner thanking us for leaving everything clean and tidy - what a lovely gesture and a great way to round off a short break! Sykes Cottages booking process is easy and trouble free. The whole experience was truly amazing - we loved it!

Boasting a smart and fresh interior and sitting within simple reach of the many magnificent attractions of Cornwall, bring your friends or family along to enjoy this wonderful location.

Step outside to discover the beautiful enclosed terrace, a perfect spot to treat yourself to a spot of alfresco dining whilst watching the tide rolling in.

Take a few short steps to be touched with the tremendous Trebarwith Strand, a beach well-known across the country for its beauty and surfing facilities.

The coastline, stretching in both directions, is bursting with stunning cliffs and coves, heavenly sands and many opportunities to try something new.

The magical village of Tintagel, with the world-famous King Arthur's Castle, is just two miles away and is most certainly worth a look around.

A stay at Gull Rock is sure to be a memorable one.
