    “This was my first stay with Sykes cottages and it was not a good experience.”


    The flat inside was fine and but l had to clean it as light switches etc and all touch points were sticky and finger marks from the last tenants. Not what l call a Covid clean which l deal with every day with my work. Bench outside paint all coming off and could not use it. Decking paint pealing and moss all over.the flat has neighbours on both sides and their outdoor are is an eyesore. Had to pay £60 to park in station car park as no free parking at rear of the building which it does say in the advert. Street at the rear to narrow and double yellow lines. Entrance to flat is the maindoor to second hand shop. Entrance and stairs dirty. Neighbours are hourendous. One side dog barking and arguing in early hours of morning which kept us awake. The other side playing music until 4 am twice during our stay no respect for people trying to sleep. What was meant to be a relaxing holiday turned into a bit of a nightmare. We left a day early as had enough of the noise. Would not recommend this property.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles. Helicopter to Isles of Scilly - 30 minutes

Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbor. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
