  • "Easy space to live in."

    Lovely setting in the owners garden. Chickens offer plenty of entertainment in the garden in their large coup. St Agnes is within reach and a very pleasant place to visit and walk to the beach.

  • "We had a fantastic stay."

    The accommodation was spotless, and had everything we needed. It’s a lovely a quiet location, but still easy to drive to lots of places for days out. The owners are lovely and welcoming, we enjoyed being in a rural location and sitting out with a cup of tea watching the hens in the morning. If you are looking for somewhere to relax it’s perfect.

    Beautiful Scandinavian style Lodge in owners lovely garden, spotlessly clean and well appointed. Pleasant Owners,Becky and Simon, very welcoming with a delicious cream tea together with eggs from their chickens.

  • "The lane we had to follow from the A3075 which led to Nordstrom was very narrow and did not seem to have passing places and so we were very concerned at meeting an oncoming vehicle, luckily this did not occur."

    This also meant we would not have wished to use this lane in the hours of darkness and so we always made sure we returned in daylight hours. We were very pleased with the property and we had a beautiful view from the lounge area of the garden where we could watch the beautiful poultry in an enclosed area happily feeding in an ideal environment.

  • "Simon and Becky our hosts, were really lovely and helpful if we needed anything, but not intrusive."

    The setting, especially in the evening, after a day at the beach, was peaceful, and calm. Their chickens weren’t noisy, and they have a pet duck which came to knock on our window every day. Overall, I would highly recommend a stay there.

    Nordstrom was an amazing cottage, perfect for two and although in the grounds of a property, very private and well looked after. Great location for walks and short drives to the coast and Truro. Sykes communicated all the information we needed before our arrival and before departure which was stress-free and reassuring. Would highly recommend this place!

  • "We had an excellent holiday at Nordstrom."

    The accommodation was perfect for our needs and the garden very relaxing. The chickens kept our toddler son amused and he loved exploring the place. The owners were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The accommodation is situated in a very quiet valley but near to many attractions. We enjoyed the magnificent beaches at Holywell, Porthtowan, Chapel Porth and Trevaunance Cove on the nearby north coast and travelled slightly further afield to the calmer beaches of the Roseland. We also loved Fowey and Charlestown and had a great walk along the estuary near Truro. All in all, a great spot, thank you.

    The weather has been superb and Nordstrom is in a perfect location. Nice and secluded but not too far from the beaches and towns. The recommendations from the owners as to where to go and eat etc were very helpful. This was our second visit and it’s more than likely we will try to come again in the future! xx

    It was so quiet, and private with a beautiful garden which was just for the property. The sky at night had so little light pollution, the stars were clear as day. It was so restful, and the house itself was gorgeous. It would have been hard not to relax there. Definitely exceeded our expectations, and we would definitely go again.

  • "Have used Sykes cottages many times and all cottages have been of a very good quality."

    My only gripe is the website keeps sending reminders to book quickly to avoid disappointment. I do not like being put under pressure to book before I am ready. I realise you are treating everyone the same but its time you recognised other people feel the same way as I do.

    A much needed break away in a peaceful location with a beautiful view, chickens in the garden and welcoming and friendly owners, (yummy cream tea provided by Becky- thanks), what more could you ask for? Would definitely use Sykes again and Nordstrom would definitely be a contender for a repeat visit too.

    It's in a quiet tranquil spot away from noisy traffic etc but is a close enough drive to many local beaches and towns. The view from the log cabin is fantastic and if it's a clear night you can see hundreds of stars. Wonderful welcome, felt right a home. Couldn't ask for more!
