  • "A lovely place to stay with all things needed for us and the dog"

    Reviewed by Clive4.7Sep 2023

  • "We have stayed in Treknow many times but this was our first stay in Heatherdale."

    Location is perfect - stunning views and a quick walk to the coast path. The house is really comfy and well-equipped, especially the kitchen. Best dog-friendly place we've stayed, with a large and properly enclosed back garden. Having a tumble drier was a luxury which was very helpful when it was too wet to dry outside, and the outhouse was so handy for storing beach stuff and wetsuits. It really felt like a home away from home, and on the odd rainy day we were content to light the log burner and play games by the fire, watching the fog roll in from the sea. Thank you.

  • "Lovely stay at Heatherdale, amazing views and the parking pace is really useful."

    The Out-house is really useful for hanging wetsuits, just would benefit from a little TLC. But didn't distract from a great holiday.

    Thanks so much. We are actually having the outhouse refurbished in September! Property Owner

    A beautiful cottage, a real home from home. Instructions to get in were easy, with flowers on the table to greet us. Beautifully clean and wonderfully equipped. Kitchen utensils galore, lovely crockery, glasses and saucepans. Games and books and painting things, binoculars, body boards, washing machine and tumble dryer.

    Two pubs with good food only a few minutes walk away as well as the excellent Coffee Cup van on the road to Trebarwith beach for coffee and fantastic home made cakes. Just a few yards to the network of local footpaths for walks to Tintagel, Bossiney and further afield. The parking space is a real bonus.

  • "Perfect in every way!"

    Amazing location to explore the coast and great walks from the door and quickly on the coast path. Immaculately clean, very comfortable and everything you could need. Great places to eat nearby or to sit outside and enjoy the sun traps (we had great weather) at the front and rear of the property. We wish we'd booked two weeks!

    Once again having stayed in various Sykes Cottages the property Heatherdale at Treknow was lovely. A great location and great views. It actually felt like we were 'home'. Brilliant holiday where again we didn't want to leave. Hopefully, one day, we can call Cornwall our forever home. Matthew and Hazel Nolder. Stayed 14th-19th March 2022.

  • "Lovely cottage over three floors, stairs are quite steep but that’s due to it being a Victorian property."

    Had everything we needed for a lovely stay. Central heating very efficient we were often too warm. Would book this property again.

  • "Yes. The cottage is lovely although the bathroom could do with an upgrade."

    The shower and bath are pretty worn. The cleanliness and welcome touches were good as always. We do have an issue with Sykes however. This is the 3rd year we've booked with Sykes, for the same cottage - but have not been given a loyalty discount in years 2 and 3. Most holiday companies offer discounts to loyal customers. Disappointing that Sykes have not provided the same.

  • "Heatherdale cottage is a home from home when it comes to facilities that you need within your home… it was brilliant."

    Remember to check the out house as we bought body boards before we realised they had plenty in there that you could borrow. The location was amazing and a short walk to the beach which had an amazing sunset which was perfect, It also is a walk to King Arthur’s castle too along the cliff and the view we fantastic we even had the luck to see sea lions/ diploma . The beds were extremely comfortable… the view from the property was fabulous. We will definitely return to this amazing location, fabulous area and quaint property. Rainbow left a gorgeous message with nice treats which was really welcoming and a great start to a lovely break. Thank you selina

    Being able to walk to the beach and being so close to the coastal path was a plus. The bedrooms were really comfortable and everyone slept well after the days activities.

  • "We loved this beautiful cottage."

    It was cosy, tastefully furnished and generously equipped with everything we needed from books to crockery to beautifully scented soap and diffusers. We definitively felt like guests in a proper home rather than customers in a sterile rental and the stunning view from the sitting room window made staying in almost as pleasurable as our long walks along the coast.

  • "The stairs to the top floor are narrow and steep and also access to the house from the front and the back gardens can be slippery when wet."

    Not suitable for those who are not sure-footed. The view from the cottage is absolutely gorgeous and the owners have included every little touch to make it feel like home from home. A tranquil place.

  • "The holiday home was really lovely, felt like home from home and had amazing views of the sea in the background and lovely countryside which was just on the doorstep."

    The beach nearby welcomed dogs throughout the year but depending on the tides can be quite small and can get crowded but the beaches at Bude and Widemouth Bay are not too far away. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at Heatherdale.

    It is superbly situated with lovely countryside views towards the sea and is only a short walk to Trebarwith Strand beach.

We enjoyed a really relaxing holiday and hope to be able to stay there again.

  • "The holiday home was absolutely wonderful, it was like a home from home and we would love to stay there again."

    Fantastic location and so well equipped! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend! The garden was enclosed which was great for our dog and children when we weren’t exploring the area. It’s a house with so much personality, they have books, games as well as body boards, buckets and spades. The kitchen has everything you could need too! It was exceptionally clean. It’s the best holiday home we’ve every stayed in! The 15-20 minute walk down to Trebarwith Strand through a field and a little wooded area is delightful, there is a pub, also very nice, and a shop selling beach bits and bobs including very good ice cream. We would highly recommend a walk to Tintagel along the South West Coast Path from Trebarwith Strand, it’s about 2.4 miles and a little hilly but the views are outstanding. We can’t wait to come back!

About the location


Boscastle 4.9 miles; Padstow 19.9 miles

This small village and civil parish lies on the north coast of Cornwall in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, some four miles north-west of Camelford. It boasts a slate quarrying history and was also once home to a small copper mine in the latter years of the 18th century. It has a village hall and small hotel, yet there is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, which is dominated by glistening waters, rocky coves and spectacular scenery each way you turn. Tintagel, home of the legendary King Arthur’s Castle, is merely a stone's throw away, a popular but not overcrowded tourist destination. Several beaches, including nearby Trebarwith Strand and Bossiney Cove, are within easy reach and surfing is the main attraction for those who love the water. It is littered with pubs and restaurants and the Old Post Office (National Trust) is a must for any visitor. The South West Coast Path passes through the village and in both directions, it winds its way along the cliffs, down to the water’s edge through dramatic countryside. Head north along the path and in 2.5 miles is the pretty village of Boscastle with its narrow valley leading down towards the raging sea. Further afield are the surfing meccas of Newquay and Bude. The vast landscapes of Bodmin Moor, the largest indoor rainforest at the Eden Project and the Camel Estuary are all within a 40-minute drive, plus the colourful harbour at Padstow beckons with traditional pubs and delicious seafood.

Please Note; Not suitable for people with limited mobility, as steeply sloping, front garden, please take care, torch advisable due to limited lighting from back garden.
