  • "Absolutely wonderful in every way!"

    Clean and tidy to perfection on arrival and literally everything we needed down to a bag of ice in the freezer , which we were very grateful of this in the heat. I would recommend this to villa everyone! And the views….. wow. Short walk to the town of Newlyn( little steep to start) but everything you could need at the co-op ( open till 11pm) pubs serving food and a beautiful cinema! ( we watched downtown abbey) Unbelievable walk to Penzance and Parking for 1 car . Beautiful property, we really didn’t want to leave. I’ll be back……..❤️

  • "Lovely place for a base for this area of Cornwall."

    The house was lovely. As there were two cars, we found parking for the second car difficult and costly. On arrival it was wet as there had been a short spell of rain so the steps up to the house were slippery. I would not recommend this property for people who may be infirm purely due to the access to the house. The only other thing is the trees outside the front of the house. They are quite overgrown and therefore spoils the views from the kitchen area, this is only a constructive criticism and no way is meant to have a negative impact on the house, which we could not fault. There was a sewer smell coming from the en-suite room, as it was not too overpowering so we did not report it until the end of the week, just so it was bought to the carters attention.

  • "The cottage was so homely and just right for my family."

    I loved the fact that our dog could be part of it, plenty of walking places. There was no stress all facilities were there for us to access in the cottage. The view was lovely from the bedroom veranda and downstairs it looked over the harbour stunning a holiday worth while.

  • "Really lovely holiday!"

    The cottage was absolutely beautiful, the views out to the harbour were amazing. Location was perfect for exploring the area. Would only say that a few extra kitchen equipment would have been an advantage (e.g measuring jug and oven glove) went and purchased the latter and left at the cottage. Would love to come back and will definitely recommend to friends and family. The weather was fantastic too!

    Wonderful views of Newlyn from all aspects of the house. Lovely and clean. I would buy this house tomorrow (if it was for sale). We were traveling for the first time with our 11 week old daughter, and it was just perfect. Will be coming back to stay again.

    There was broken furniture and a broken step. So I spent my first evening there cleaning- not good The garden was full of weeds and unwelcoming I am writing to your head office about my experience.

    Lovely property. Excellent views. Cosy log fire. Massive 3D type television that my 10 yr old son was over the moon about - access to Netflix etc and high speed broadband. Well equipped kitchen and generally lots of space.

  • "This was our second visit to Rose Villa - we were so impressed the first time, we decided to return."

    Everything was as before and we were generally very impressed with the location, facilities and accommodation. The comments below are not complaints, simply feed forward comments really: The court yard garden would have benefited from a good tidy up - the weeds were beginning to get out of control but this didn't impact on the quality of our stay - simply a cosmetic point and easily rectified. Also, although we appreciate the park below the cottage is council owned, it was very untidy and made us feel rather sad that it had been neglected since our previous visit. It would have been useful to have access to spare bedding and towels - we do of course appreciate there are laundry facilities at the cottage but to be honest, when on holiday, I don't really want to spend my time doing laundry. It would have also have been useful to have a small selection of pillows - the pillows were rather soft for my taste but I appreciate that's a subjective comment. We would have liked a summer weight duvet - it was rather hot during our week and bearing in mind it's not our property, we did not feel comfortable leaving windows/balcony doors open at night. The bathroom door in the en suite is difficult to close as the door has dropped and the toilet seat in the en suite was broken on our arrival. We did report the issue by email but did not get a response. The above are all very minor gripes, easily rectified but for us, would definitely improve the quality of our stay. In short, we all had a wonderful week and were rather sad to leave - Rose Villa is definitely a home from home for us and we shall definitely return in time. If it was up for sale and we could afford it, we would definitely move in permanently!

    The location was good but the cleanliness was disgusting, all the toilets had stains and debris on them, the sinks had hair on them and the hand rail up the stairs was black from dirty hands. Also the towels that we were left had stains on them and the bedding in one bedroom appeared dirty and smelled. There were no instructions on how to work the appliances in the kitchen making the stay very unattractive and we will not be using Sykes ever again. A company such as Sykes really has to improve their customer service, we are really unhappy with the whole process and will not rent from Sykes again. Andy Greenwood

    It was well equipped, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The beds were the most comfortable we have slept in whilst on holiday and we have stayed in numerous holiday homes over the years. We forgot to put any feedback in the visitors book but would be grateful if you could pass on our comments. I booked the holiday online and it was an easy process. I did phone to cover us for accidental damage at the property and the call was answered quickly and efficiently. We have no negatives to report on either the accommodation or your company.

    It was much appreciated when we arrived to find teabags, milk in the fridge together with a packet of biscuits and vase of fresh flowers - what a great start! The cottage is in a great position with views over the pretty harbour. It is very well equipped with quality items. The beds are really comfortable with pure cotton bedding. The towels are great too. Everywhere is decorated to a high standard and is spotlessly clean. We didn't need it, but the log burner was laid ready for use with plenty of extra wood available. We were delighted with everything and will definitely be returning. Thank you.

On closer inspection we found downstairs shower room had mud up the sides, the cushions in lounge had stains on. The bed in the en-suite was not very clean. we found a broken glass in back of kitchen cupboard. There is a leaking in the ceiling of the en-suite shower room. Parking permit was out of date.

  • "I cannot fault the lovely Rose Villa at all."

    It is a wonderful place to stay in. The sad matter for us staying this time was the huge mix up about the date our holiday started leading to the problem of walking in to a dirty place and no bed linen on the beds. Yes people were sent round at 6.30pm but I had already done all the cleaning myself so asked for them to make up the beds as I did not want all the hassle of it being cleaned so late in the day in the time we had paid for and with it being over three hours after the arrival time. Happy with the way you are looking in to what happened and why?

    The cottage was really well equipped and had everything that was required. Access could be a little tricky for those whose mobility is limited, but for us that was not even an issue and we could find no fault with anything. Even though we are not pet owners and the cottage accepted pets which was clear when we booked,we would love to stay again as we loved the cottage and the quaint and tranquil location.

About the location


Penzance 1.2 miles; Marazion 6.6 miles; St Ives 8.9 miles.

Nestled next to Penzance, and although still a quaint town in its own right, Newlyn is actually the third largest fishing port in England, and an important Port of Refuge for all seafaring craft. This Cornish town is clustered around the harbour, with its historic 800 year old quay (the Mayflower actually left for America from this quay, not Plymouth) curling around a few small boats on the western side. Famous for the Newlyn school of Art and Newlyn Copper, the Cornwall Coastal Path passes through the town, as does the level Mousehole to Marazion cycle path. An abundance of wildlife and flora can be enjoyed along both, with basking sharks, dolphins and grey seals often seen. The Cornish coast is renowned for surfing, and Penwith offers some splendid beaches on which to enjoy this sport as well as surf fishing for sea bass. Mounts Bay also offers a wealth of opportunity for watersports enthusiasts as well as giving visitors an opportunity to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings.
