  • "This was our 4th visit to Pencoys."

    It has always been spotless and well presented. The housekeeper and handyman were very helpful when the lights fused on evening. The house is well located in the village and near to shops. We will be back!

  • "Quite frankly this was a miserable and alarming experience, made worse by the complete lack of meaningful response from Sykes Cottages."

    Despite contacting Sykes during my stay to report a catalogue of issues at the rental property, they have refused to do anything. Issues included equipment not working, unhygienic facilities, seriously uncomfortable bed and lack of privacy. Three days into my stay I looked out of the rear window and was alarmed to see a man wandering around the garden. He remained for nearly 2 hours, effectively stopping myself and my dog from using the garden. No explanation, no apology. Two days later I returned to the house to find that someone (presumably an agent of the owner, but who knows ?) had been in the house, including upstairs. I had left my laptop, purse, tablet etc in the lounge. No permission had been sought or explanation given. This is quite appalling. I have stayed in numerous holiday places. This was the worst I have ever been in. I was highly relieved to get out.

  • "The property was clean, light, comfortable and very spacious."

    It was in a good location with the beach, shops and pubs close by. We had read about the unmade road but this was really not a problem and far better than we were expecting. A perfect location for walking the coast path on the Lizard.

  • "A lovely stay in a beautiful village and so close to the coast."

    Everything on your doorstep to shops and pubs/cafes within a 10 minute walk, great location. The only thing I would suggest is getting a bigger toaster!

  • "Lovely house, in a fantastic location."

    I had read reviews about the lane, need not of worried the lane is fine for all cars, few divets watch where you drive. Chocolate shop, local pubs and fish and chip shop are all worth a visit but boom first ad very popular. Mussels amazing at the Mounts Bay Inn. 3 beaches/coves to choose from a hidden gem where we will definitely be returning with our pet. Nice to have caretaker up the road who was around if you needed him. 10 out of 10

  • "Very comfy, shower screen needs extending as water leaks onto floor which will cause problems for the owner."

    The Lane is bad, even for an unadopted road! My local council provides road chippings free of charge, it might be worth the owners approaching the council to see if they do the same? The stair gates were great, I set them up at the bottom of the stairs and to the living room, so it kept the dogs on the hard flooring only, they were crated at night anyway. Could do with some oven proof dishes eg Pyrex to cook with, other than that, lovely comfy, relaxing house, would book again.

  • "Nice property in a great location for exploring western Cornwall, however the garden is overgrown and not tempting, the parasol is broken, the microwave is from circa 1970 and is very low powered, the TV is small and there is no second TV for kids/gaming etc."

    the beds are very cheap and uncomfortable, you can feel all the springs and the bedding is the cheapest available, we had to buy sets of pillows just to sleep. The decorations are fair but in places are in need of a refresh particularly in the house bathroom. The driveway/private road to the house is so badly potholed that I would not have wanted to use it with my last car, and had to put my range rover on high suspension setting, for £100 of crusher run shared among the houses on the street this could be fixed.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are glad you found the property to be in a great location. We will shortly be cutting back the shrubs, when the flowers have gone. The Tv with Sky is in good working order and there are no plans to replace this. We do however have plans to upgrade the bathroom at some point in the near future. In regard to the lane as mentioned previously, driving at a low speed is recommended and sign posted accordingly. Property Owner

  • "We arrived and it was very cold."

    No heating inside for over 24hours. Couldn’t contact the owner or housekeeper! Issue finally resolved by a handyman. A neighbour then decided to just park on the drive making it difficult for our learning disabled adult with mobility issues to negotiate the drive and on the final day the cleaner arrived at 9.30am and wanted to start cleaning! Facilities were ok but could do with some updating! It was nice to have a whole house though. Enclosed garden for the dog was good. The property is in a good location but we probably wouldn’t stay there again.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are sorry that the property was cold, this is because the boiler had been serviced the day before and the engineer had forgotten to turn it back on. As you are aware, my handyman attended as soon as possible to rectify this. Guests should contact Sykes/Cornish Cottage Holidays if they encounter any issues at the property. Apologies that our neighbour parked on the drive, he was not aware that the property was occupied. The housekeeper did arrive a little early on this occasion and once she knew that you had not left, she retired until you did. Property Owner

  • "A very nice bungalow situated on the edge of Mullion."

    Good base to explore the far end of cornwall. The private unmade entrance lane is a bit of a challenge but as long as you take it carefully (and slow) you can get in and out ok. Easy walk to village with several good pubs, supermarkets and other small shops. Nice fish and chip shop although pubs also do good food at lunch times and in the evenings. We had an excellent home cooked sunday roast at the Old Inn. All the locals are friendly and happy always speak - even to us holiday makers. Would highly recommend this place and we would be happy to stay here again.

  • "Yea the track to the property is not very good."

    It’s a shared track and very rutted and has holes that need to be sorted out it’s like a rollercoaster to drive on and not very good at all.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. The track you mention is an unadpoted road which is jointly owned by a number of properties (all need to agree before maintenance can be arranged). There is a 5 mph sign at the entrance so all users of this road should be travelling very slowly. Property Owner

The property

Residing in the seaside village of Mullion is the delightful cottage of Pencoys.

With ample access to the Lizard Heritage Coast and boasting fabulous views of the Cornish countryside, Pencoys is a superb setting for a family of six who want to get away from it all.

Park your vehicles in the two handy off-road spaces before relishing the rural vista.

Be welcomed into a pleasant living/dining room where leather seating, Sky TV, a toasty woodburning stove, along with plenty of books and games await you.

Progress through the charming home-from-home to the kitchen, a well-equipped space where the chef of the group can enjoy fixing up tasty dishes on the electric double oven; when dinner is ready, gather the group around the dining table and catch up about your coastal activities.

The first floor hosts three bedrooms, two appealing doubles and a twin room that is ideal for children; the family bathroom is also situated on this floor, with a shower for you to enjoy a well-earned rest in, the cloakroom downstairs provides you with another basin and WC.

Unwind on the terrace as your loved one works the barbecue, and your furry friends stretch their legs on the lawn below.

The location of Pencoys is fantastic, with your amenities being under a mile away, venture into the village to grab your essentials, before savouring lunch at The Old Inn pub and sunbathing on the soft sands of Polurrian Beach.

Pay the town of Helston a visit and learn of the region's history in the Museum of Cornish Life, take the family for an exhilarating outing at Flambards Theme Park, or hike through the beautiful Cober Valley.

Venture south to the settlement of Lizard and hike the South West Coastal Path to Lizard Point, paddle in the waters at the quiet Housel Bay Beach and tour the Lighthouse's Museum.

Outdoors enthusiasts can partake in kayaking and canoeing in the region's waters with Vertical Blue Adventures, or travel to the Goonhilly Downs National Nature Reserve Walk to embark on walking and cycling trails.

There is so much to experience with the family at Pencoys.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Helston 5 miles; Lizard Point 5.5 miles.

Mullion is a large village on the Lizard Peninsula, five miles south of Helston and just over five miles from Lizard Point, the most southerly tip of mainland Britain. The village is home to a selection of popular restaurants, shops and pubs, Mullion Meadows Chocolate Factory and coffee shop, as well as Mullion Cove, a pretty working harbour. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Mullion is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
