    We needed a base for visiting a few different locations in Cornwall and Egloskerry was a good location. Melissa was a great host, making everything easy. The lodge is very comfortable and we had everything we needed.

  • "Melissa was such a friendly and welcoming host."

    The property was very clean and very well equipped. My husband, my one year old and I had a wonderful week and the location was great for visiting both the south and north of Cornwall. It had a beautiful outlook on to fields and the welcome cream tea was a lovely gesture.

  • "The perfect place for me to stay as I wanted to have some time to unwind and think - and the view was lovely from the garden."

    It was also well situated for several lovely towns and places of interest and some walks that I didn't have time for - I so wish I had been able to stay for two weeks instead of one. The cream tea on arrival was very welcome.

  • "We had a wonderful stay."

    Everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Might suggest a clothes airer for wet weather to dry any washing. It was great to be provided with washing up liquid etc. The out door seating area was a great bonus and the views were lovely. Will definitely return.

  • "Came here for my honeymoon."

    Absolutely perfect for two people. The owner was super friendly and accommodating - she left us out a cream tea with some champagne as it was a special occasion! The location is excellent, and we were able to get all around Cornwall very easily. Inside it was compact, modern, and incredibly comfortable - a perfect place to come back to if it had been raining or windy. Will definitely be coming back again in the future. PS: it does have wifi!

  • "The little cottage is well equipped and a great base for travelling around Cornwall."

    The hosts are great, and there are little touches such as a cream tea, wine and flowers. There are great views at the rear of the property and we enjoyed sitting out, having breakfast as it's very peaceful. The Lodge is decorated to a high standard with a nice bathroom and good shower. There wasn't a lot of places to eat in April as lock down restrictions were gradually lifting. Most nights, we had a takeaway or cooked a meal. The kitchen again is well equipped for this however, we couldn't work out how to use the microwave. Cornwall is a truely beautiful part of the country and highlights were the characterful fishing villages such as Polperro, Padstow and Magavissey. We will definitely be coming back and would recommend this place as a great little hideaway.

  • "Im afraid i cannot share the enthusiasm of previous guests."

    This property was very dissapointing in comparison to other Sykes Cottages I have rented. The cottage definately needs some loving care and attention. The property looked very run down and definately didnt meet the expectations I was used to when renting with Sykes. Melissa was very kind however when we mentioned that the toilett seat was defective this remark was completely ignored. The amenities were VERY basic and the garden furniture was rusty and not very inviting. The shower was not very clean and black dirt came out of the piping. I expected more quality for the price.
