  • "Good location, lovely clean cosy cottage, 7 of us were very comfortable."

    Thank you for a lovely stay ☺️

  • "Property layout did not work for our group, primarily the living accommodation on the first floor & bedrooms on the ground floor caused problems with people enjoying a "lay in" in the mornings being disturbed by movement of the floor above."

    When early risers were using the kitchen/lounge, this caused loud creaking/banging of the wooden floor. Also the advertisement indicated that the property had numerous dvd/games/books on site but these had been removed by the owner on the advice of Sykes, due to covid restrictions. This was not apparent until arrival on site. There was no advance warning from Sykes that this had been done, had we have known, we would have transported these to site for entertainment for the children.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a quiet location."

    The cottage was exceptionally clean with modern kitchen appliances. The living room was spacious and comfy. Perfect for a group of 6. Would thoroughly recommend and return ourselves.

  • "Fantastic, comfortable property in a rural, peaceful countryside location."

    Nicky the owner was very helpful and even contacted us about an item we left behind at the end of our stay. Would highly recommend staying here and I don’t think it will be our last visit.

  • "Found the bathroom very dark, perhaps more lighting could be added."

    For gentlemen difficulty shaving. Also the shower room was a bit of a squeeze for adults and tall people. The steps coming down from the garden needs a hand rail as each step was quite deep.

  • "A beautiful cottage with everything you could ask for, including a welcome pack of goodies (Tea / Coffee / Milk / Biscuits and Cream Teas) which were really appreciated after a long journey to Cornwall."

    The cottage was of a high standard, all facilities included in good working order and the cottage itself was clean, tidy and very comfortable; a real home from home. The owners (who live next door) were extremely friendly and on hand if you needed anything; they were very knowledgeable of the area and were able to recommend suitable places for us to visit that suited the whole family (age range from 6 to 81). Would highly recommend and happily return in future years.

    The owners are lovely, very friendly and welcoming which made the holiday a special holiday. We are definitely going to book again. I would give it a score of 10 out of 10 and have recommended it to both friends and family.

The property

A semi-detached barn conversion in a quiet rural location within the heart of the Cornish countryside, just six miles from a wealth of beautiful beaches around Newquay and just five miles from Newquay Airport.

Situated next door to the owner and within a group of sympathetically restored barns, this lovely Newquay cottage provides a quiet hideaway for family holidays.

Furnished in traditional style, this cottage near St Columb Major combines character with charm.

Arranged in an upside down manner to make full use of the beautiful views, the sitting room of the first floor of this Newquay cottage is spacious enough for two families to get together over a meal in the dining area, and the two bathrooms and four bedrooms ensure that every guest enjoys a comfortable and relaxing stay.

This St Columb Major cottage has a private garden with seating, an ideal space for relaxing and enjoying the quiet countryside atmosphere.

There’s also a secure place available to store bikes and surfboards, and an area for wetsuits to be rinsed and dried is also available.

Within six miles of the cottage, Newquay offers many world-class beaches, which are all family-friendly and safe, whether you wish to surf, kayak, swim or simply paddle in the rock pools.

Cycling trails in this area are superb, including the Camel Trail, and Cardinham Woods, which are only a short drive away.

There are stunning sub-tropical gardens, Newquay Zoo and Aquarium, plus endless walks along the South West Coast Path.

A fabulous granite-built St Columb Major cottage with plenty of Cornish character and exciting activities nearby.
