  • "The bungalow is in a lovely, peaceful spot."

    It was a delight to hear the stream flowing by and watching the squirrels, robins and even bullfinches outside. However, the furniture needs updating. The bedroom furniture in the double rooms is really dated and the sofas are uncomfortable and sagging, so much so, that you’re almost sitting on the floor. What’s with the folding door on the single bedroom??? A proper enclosed bedroom, with an actual door, would be far better because that nasty door is useless!

  • "Another fantastic week."

    Our cottage was absolutely spotless, as usual! Everything we needed was provided. Thank you so much Julie and the wonderful team who look after the cottages and make them so fresh to move into! We hadn't planned on doing too much, this week was about relaxing but we were never at a loss. A great place to chill, watch a film or read as it's so quiet, just the sound of the stream....wonderful. The view from the back of the cottage, second to none. We never tire of looking at it. This time we had lambs and their mums keeping us company and the stunning oak takes centre stage. Magical. A fantastic location, 5 minutes from Liskeard and whatever shops you need. Beautiful fishing lake across the lane. The charge for fishing is very reasonable and the fish are in great condition (my fisherman son loves it). He fishes while I read, it's such a tranquil and pretty place and immaculate too. You're less than a half hour from the coast and 15 minutes from the Tamar bridge should you want to cross it and go to Plymouth or further. We try not to! It's not nice to leave Kernow! Go west! We come back to Watergate Bay every year and this year, twice, as we've just booked for September. It feels like a real escape.

  • "Property is fine,view from sitting room overlooking the field and watching the squirrels listening to the stream relaxing it would be much more relaxing if the settees were comfortable very saggy."

    It could also do with a handrail in the shower. Also the front door handle had to forced up to lock and unlock.

  • "Another brilliant stay at Watergate Bay."

    Firstly, I'd like to say a massive thank you to Julie and the other ladies who cleaned before we went in. The cottage was spotless. Really top notch. It's a wonderful place to stay. Quiet, chilled and in the most gorgeous surroundings. The view from the back of the cottage is second to none. Well equipped, comfortable beds, again, spotless. Lovely fresh bed linen. Wi-Fi doesn't bother us but we have a 15 year old son and he is always happy with the speed of it here. Also, for me a real advantage, the washing machine, a brilliant thing indeed! With Liskeard so close by for essentials, wonderful pubs: The Crow's Nest (our favourite), The Plough at Duloe and if you don't mind a drive through the best scenery in the world, The Cobweb Inn at Boscatle, to name a few. Fishing at the lake was wonderful. My son is a mad keen angler and loved it. The fish are in great condition and it's the perfect place for parents to chill. Bake lakes, just off the Trerulefoot roundabout are fantastic if you want to fish different lakes. A brilliant stay. As usual. Back in March, can't wait. Thank you!!

  • "Well kept apartment and surrounding area."

    Although there is nothing to do on site, Watergate Bay is a good base with all the usual modern conveniences included. We particularly enjoyed the view from our picnic bench overlooking the stream to the sheep fields. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Super clean and very well equipped. Really can't fault it at all. Beautiful views from the back too. The beds were comfortable, a real home from home!

  • "The property accommodated my family of 5 and a dog perfectly."

    This was our second stay and it didn't disappoint. The property was immaculately clean and had everything we needed. The only thing I would say is that there is no shop or restaurant within walking distance. Apart from this it is perfect.

    Only one downside is the onsite pub has shut down but is still listed as open on description.Having said that would definately book again.

  • "What a little gem!"

    Watergate Bay is in the most beautiful surroundings, gorgeous views, with a clear, flowing stream just at the back. Over the stream we had neighbours in the form of cows, who would come for a chat! The cottage itself was perfect. Plenty of room and all the equipment needed to have a good stay. I have to say also that it was spotlessly clean. Immaculate. We booked at quite short notice and there wasn’t much available in our price range and that met our criteria, we usually stay in Cawsand on the coast, so inland was a departure but we weren’t disappointed with this find. I went for it as there is a fishing lake literally a couple of hundred yards away over a quiet lane that is a part of the holiday village. You pay a fee, daily or weekly. At a total of £45 for my husband and son for a week’s fishing, you can’t go wrong.My son was in heaven. Such a gorgeous lake set in a tranquil landscape. The fish were super healthy and the whole area, like our cottage, was immaculate. Dogs must be kept on a lead but there is an area of woodland just up the road where they can be let off, another plus! We came home and have booked for next year already. Back at the coastal cottage we use in October too. Have to say that we only use Sykes. The whole experience is stress free and descriptions have always been bang on.
