  • "Broken window stay, upstairs windows very hard to close, leaking wc overflow ..."

    Broken window stay, upstairs windows very hard to close, leaking wc overflow which had to be repaired, cracks throughout property & it needs a general overhaul to bring up to standard, property was big enough , neighbours were very friendly, could be a great property with a bit of TLC

  • "Fabulous weather."

    Great location to stay and the property is a lovely quaint cottage. All local amenities are within 5 minutes walk into Wadebridge. Best nearby beach is Polzeath beach, 15 minutes drive away.

  • "It was a great cottage that exceeded expectations on many counts."

    There are just some small details that would help people staying to have an excellent time. Couple of sink/bath plugs need replacing as broken, bedside light in master bedroom needs replacement as broken. The master double bed needs mending / replacing it is quite rickety and squeaky. Additional light in kitchen. Cottage in great location to explore the north coast of Cornwall.

  • "Lovely warm, clean cottage, in a lovely area of Wadebridge, well positioned for touring North Cornwall."

    The only problem was where the key box was situated 10" off the ground and with poor eye sight and knee problems we had difficulty in opening it. The lovely next door neighbour came to the rescue. I advise anyone arriving in the dark to bring a torch to locate and open the box.

  • "What a ridiculous place to put a key safe!"

    It was about 12 to 18 inches off the ground, perfect for Cornish pixies but a challenge for 2 seniors with dodgy knees! Initial impressions were good, reasonably well furnished and equipped but the shower head and rail were broken. I managed to cobble together a repair but it's not what I wanted to do after 5 hour journey. It was reported initially in March I believe and certainly again in July. This was 16 th October! I had to contact the owner about the TV and mentioned the shower. I know was her reply! I found the bed squidgy and it creaked every time you moved. I had a problem getting the TV to work and the owner couldn't help. The situation was resolved the next day. Good job I had a good book. I think the owner needs to visit the cottage and sort out the problems.It's a pity to have to criticise what is a lovely cottage in a very good position on quiet road through lack of attention by the owner. If shower was fixed and rthe bed changed I'd return

  • "Willow cottage was sparkling when we arrived, so clean and inviting."

    On arrival we noticed lovely touches such as a bottle of wine, tea bags, coffee, sugar and milk all provided to help us feel at home. Can't fault the house as it was our third stay there and we love it's ideal location, situated within Wadebridge which has everything you need and easy access to some fantastic beaches, dog walking along the Camel trail as well as our favourite cafe, Wood and Green. Sykes Cottages are effortless to deal with.

  • "Good location."

    Clean but facilities were dated. 10 minutes walk into Wadebridge & quiet area.

  • "What a lovely cottage."

    Such a lovely place with everything and more then we could want, quiet road and easy access. We were especially touched by the extra milk, coffee and tea and the bottle of wine and pringles provided since it was so nice to have that cup of tea on arrival without having to go out first to get the necessary bits. We would definately go again, it was so very nice.

  • "No hot water or heating for 5 days - unable to contact owners through information provided - contacted Skyes who got in touch with the owners who said that would send an engineer but no one turned up."

    Overall the cottage is good but the fittings are old and in need of repair/replacement especially the shower fittings

  • "We have booked with Sykes many times but on this occasion were disappointed in the property."

    The details advised us that there were low ceilings but we feel that it should also be noted that there are two steps coming out of two of the bedrooms onto the stairs (which are quite steep) - you need to be very careful getting to the bathroom in the night while half asleep! The room with the double bed has a very low door & the mismatched furniture & tatty wall mirror made it feel less than homely. The wardrobe is a curtain on a rail. While adequate for purpose it looked like it had seen better days. The twin bedroom has the same "wardrobe" & two twin beds which are narrower than the norm & not comfortable for an adult. We feel this should be noted. The single bedroom is overlooked by next doors garden which could be a privacy issue as no nets. The wall lighting in here is poor. The bedside lamp cannot be left plugged in as the only switch we found was on the opposite wall meaning the flex trailed across the door - less than ideal! On a more positive note, the rooms were clean & the bed linen spotless - although we have never been asked to strip the beds on leaving before! The two bathrooms were both spacious & clean. On the whole the kitchen was adequate but lacking a kitchen knife & the cafetiere had not been emptied out & cleaned. The dining/living room area had room for improvement décor & comfort wise. The wooden dining chairs definitely need cushions. The "living" area looks totally uninviting, not a place we wanted to relax in though the chairs were more comfortable than they looked. The "games" room was fine comfort wise but the TV had a mind of its own. More often than not there was no signal at all & sometimes it was okay until you changed channel then it lost everything. I would suggest if you need evening entertainment take some DVDs as you can't rely on the TV. The wi-fi signal, however was good. Outside, the back garden is stepped & steep. The front has parking for two cars though it would be tight for two larger cars. It's only fair to point out that we had to book over a certain Bank Holiday (due to a family event) & had we paid a "standard" rate rather than an inflated Bank Holiday price of an extra £200ish, we might feel less disgruntled. As it was, this cottage was a disappointment in comfort, décor, facilities & certainly in value for money. This is only our opinion though & reading the visitors book it would seem we are in the minority.

    Been twice now and intend to go back again. It's clean, comfortable and has excellent facilities and the location is perfect. Really couldn't ask for anything more except perhaps being able to live there permanently!! Will return asap.

    The facilities were brilliant and it was pleasant. Tv signal a bit intermittent though.

  • "Skyes holidays booking process can’t be faulted."

    Unfortunately for us the Cottage was not what we were expecting. Here are the good points first, it’s a great location for touring Cornwall, we could walk into Wadebridge and Padstow is only down the road. The Cottage itself is functional it has everything you require if you want the quintessential cottage house charm. But the listing should state low doors and ceiling, (several bumped heads) the garden at the top is not secure for dogs but there is a patio at the bottom which is. The beds were uncomfortable and could do with the investment of some new mattresses. Although the cottage was clean (linen/bathroom etc) there were cobwebs everywhere and all the cutlery needed washing (but not everyone is a clean freak like me). Towels are provided, but if you like to use anything bigger than an oversized hand towel bring your own. So finally if you just require a touring place this is great. But our family like more comforts, maybe I’m just getting fussy as I get older. I don’t want to put people off booking here as it’s each to their own on requirements and hopefully a deep clean of the cottage will sort most things out.

The property

Perfectly located for touring one of the most beautiful and desirable areas of Cornwall, this quirky 200 year old terraced fisherman’s cottage is situated in a quiet road in the old market town of Wadebridge. With the town also being the centre point of the ever popular Camel trail and the glorious beaches of Polzeath, Rock and Padstow all being within a short drive, there will always be so much to do here with something for everyone. There is off street parking for 2 cars in front of the cottage.

Through the front door, to your left you will find a cosy sitting-room and straight ahead you have a living/dining area furnished with arm chairs and still fitted with the original bread oven and with an open fire, adding to the character and ideal for the cooler evenings.

At the back of this room there is a dining table and through a door on your left of the dining area you will find the well equipped kitchen which leads out to a patio with a table and chairs.

Steps leading up from this patio take you to the terraced garden, with a washing line on the top terrace.

Up the original stairs, to your left and right you have the twin and double bedrooms.

At the back of the cottage there is a single bedroom a family bathroom and a separate shower room.

As is typical of cottages of this age, Willow Cottage features beams, low ceilings and there are 2 additional steps from the double bedrooms up to the bathroom area.

The doorways into one of the bedrooms has an angled lintel, following the line of the ceiling.

A short walk will take you into Wadebridge with an excellent choice of cafes, restaurants and pubs as well as one of Cornwall's favourite pasty shops. The town is also the hub for the Camel trail.

Cycle hire is available so you have the opportunity to enjoy spectacular scenery whilst winding alongside the estuary to Padstow or, for the more adventurous cyclists, up into the hills of Bodmin Moor to Blisland where an excellent moorland pub will provide refreshment before the journey home.
