  • "We had been very much looking forward to our trip having been to this part of Cornwall Wall many times before."

    When we arrived after a 4 hr drive. The worktops in the kitchen dirtys and all the dining table also dirty. I though ok these are minor things there was cleaning items there i'll wash everything down. We dropped our things off as it was a sunny day. The rain came in we got soaked. Came back to have a shower no hot water. Thought brilliant. There was a john bray booklet in property after ring many numbers we finally got one that worked , well the gentleman said please text me. So we explained we had no water. Was asked to leave property while it was fixed. I contacted them a few hrs later as we had heard nothing. It had been fixed so after been sat in soaking wet clothes for 2 hrs we went back to get a note left from maintenance it would take a further 2 hrs for the water to warm up. This is absolutely not what you expect. 4 hrs in soaking wet clothes to wait for a shower. Then we finally at 9.30pm got into the shower and it flooded with 1 min of being on. We didn't phone maintenance as to be honest we just couldn't be bothered after it took 4 hrs the last time and it was a Saturday night and we were meant to be on holiday. The outside light hardly even worked and wasn't bright enough for the location of the proprty anyone elderly woukd habe struggked if they also had taken a dog. Then the following day tried to wash our dogs with outside shower this also didn't work and looked like it hadn't for a long time. We had stayed in a John bray cottage at Christmas in padstow Town which was absolutely wonderful we had so many lovely touches left for us. This property how ever did not live up to the pictures or standards of that. The halls in the main bedroom had cracks all over them and so did all the hallway walls and walls in living room the whole length where radiator is. John bray contacted us when we arrived home and I explained everything with them. I also contacted Sykes cottages who didn't want to know and offered us no refund. They said we should have contacted house keeping to come and clean the property again for us and also would have sent a plumber out. To be completely honest it took 4 hrs to fix the boiler we were completely fed up and why should we be contacting them when 1 the property should of been clean and 2 should surely check all facilities work before advertising them as so. What made matter worse after I had made my complaints to John bray and skyes I went on the review pay to make a review and they same comment had been made by someone who had stayed in the property one month earlier so they obviously took my £400 for a 3 night stay in early March and didn't bother fixing any of the issues. I would absolutely not book with Sykes cottages again. The accomodation was in a fairly remote place with several cottages around ours which we didn't mind this at all as we visit the area 5/6times a year. And perfect for the things we do but the pictures don't show a true reflection of property. And if you happy ringing multiple times to get thing fixed that's ok but we were not as we tried to enjoy our holiday so stay out as much as possible. For the price we paid in March there were many nicer property's which was a shame .

    Thankyou for your feedback. We are sorry to hear about the issues you had during your stay and how we could not resolve these faster for you. We can only appreciate your patience but understand your frustrations. We hope you still managed to enjoy your stay with us and hope we can have you back again in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "The shower does not drain well and floods bathroom, many areas of bathroom in disrepair requiring remedial work."

    The curtains in main bedroom were threadbare and you can see straight through them. The kitchen utensils were awful, flimsy old and not one sharp knife. There are no hooks on doors or anywhere to be able to hang clothes on, no where easy with a mirror to dry hair or put make up on. The cleaners mid way were superb and did a fantastic job of cleaning. So thanks to them. Very tired property indeed needs overhauling decorating etc. it doesn’t live up to the photographs and is extremely dark in front room. The car park kept flooding from the back/front gate and it made it hard to get in and out of the car. We tried all the phone numbers on the day we arrived (Saturday) as no clear instructions for the heating and immersion were left and those that were there were from a past letting company with 3 different WiFi codes, plus to mention the shower draining. We were unable to get a response from any of the numbers and you ring one number only to be told to ring another so we went without and muddled along. We have stayed in all the houses in upper and lower Treglyn but this was the most uncomfortable of them all. Which is such a shame as such a great place to be.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your honest feedback with us. We are sorry to hear that you experienced maintenance issues during your stay, and that the points above had a negative impact on your holiday. Our guest's happiness is very important to us and your comments will be raised to our maintenance team and property quality assessor - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner.

The property

Chy Pol is a charming, two-bedroom bungalow resting on the outskirts of St Minver, a quaint village just a short drive from the coast in Cornwall.

Boasting off-road parking for two cars, an enclosed courtyard, and a collection of well-presented, contemporary interiors, this delightful abode welcomes a family or group of four friends seeking a refreshing, self-catered Cornish escape.

Park up out front of Chy Pol, taking a brief moment to soak in your new surroundings before heading inside.

Upon entering, feel instantly at home as you're greeted by a tastefully-appointed, open-plan living space housing a fully-equipped kitchen, a dining table with ample seating, and an inviting sitting area with sofa, chair, a crackling woodburning stove, and a sleek, wall-mounted Smart TV.

On warmer days, make the most of the enclosed courtyard, pulling up a chair to delight in some alfresco dining with the help of the barbecue.

When the sun has set, head back indoors to refresh with a refreshing cleanse under the shower before you finally hunker down for a well-earned rest in either a plush king-size or bunk bedroom.

If you can tear yourself from your lovely new base, jump in the car and explore what's on offer in your local region.

In the local village of Rock, fill your fridge up from the goodies at the Nursery Stores (Spar) or if preferring not to cook, dine out at The Pityme Pub or The Mariners.

For a full day out, make a beeline for Polzeath, a bustling coastal town popular with tourists, where you and your loved ones can spend a day sunbathing on Polzeath Beach, surfing or savouring the local cuisine with a meal at the Cracking Crab or Surfside.

Just north on the coastal path, take in unrivalled sea views from Pentire Point, a stunning nature reserve home to rugged cliff sides and scenic hiking paths.

Enjoy all of this and more when you choose a stay at Chy Pol.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
