    “Very uncomfortable chairs / sofa in lounge.”

    Could not got warm no doors to close. No welcome pack not even milk. If someone was using Sykes for the first time would be VERY DISAPPOINTED. We have used Sykes many times and know this is Not your normal standard of service or accommodation!!!

    Many thanks for your valuable feedback. We’re immensely proud of Gwent Cottage and work hard and invest in it to ensure it’s as welcoming and comfortable as possible. We’re very sorry to hear you found our sofa and armchairs uncomfortable. We invested in a brand new good quality sofa and two brand new new quality leather armchairs just last year, we’ve never had anyone else comment that they are uncomfortable and can’t really see what else we can do to improve the comfort in that respect. Thank you again for your feedback though, we will keep an eye on this. Regarding the temperature, the cottage has a had a completely new central system installed within the last three years which is regularly inspected and serviced and appears to be working fine now along with UPVC double glazing throughout. It also has a log burning stove, installed less than a year ago. If there was an issue with the heating at the time and we were made aware, we of course would have sent a heating engineer round to look at it. We have updated our welcome book with more detailed instructions on how to boost the heating if required. Finally, regarding the welcome pack, this is very upsetting for us to hear as sadly, after a year of great service from our contracted premium house keeping service, this has happened a couple of times recently. We have therefore terminated our contract with them and appointed a new housekeeper. Extra supplies of all consumables as well as clean and pressed linen and towels are also now kept on site so we can rectify this immediately in the unlikely event anything like this should occur again.

The property

Perfectly placed for long beaches, sea air, great walks and foodie restaurants, Gwent Cottage sits in the pretty village of St Issey, just over three miles from holiday hotspot Padstow.

Away from the hustle and bustle, this smart semi-detached stone cottage with an enclosed patio garden is the perfect retreat for couples, families and city escapees seeking some glorious R&R.

It sits in the heart of the village, adjacent to a quaint 17th century inn which is dog-friendly and offers proper Cornish ales, a delicious home cooked menu, an impressive roster of live music and a log burning stove in winter.

Tastefully modernised, interiors have a traditional Cornish cottage feel with a stone fireplace, thick pale walls and exposed beams.

There is a comfortable sitting room with a roaring open fire, good art, books, games and a TV/DVD.

The compact kitchen adjoins a large utilities area with a fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Eat at the chunky wooden dining table or outside in the suntrap patio garden which offers a good level of privacy and is bright and cheerful with flowers in summer.

Head upstairs to two pretty bedrooms with comfortable mattresses, cotton bed linens and ample storage.

The double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom while guests in the single bedroom have use of a stylish shower room.

Just the property for families with children, there is a large entertainment room set beneath the eaves on the second floor.

Handy for wet weather days, you will find a TV, Super Nintendo, traditional board games, books and a games table including table football and pool.

It is light and airy with Velux windows and on clear days there are panoramic views over open countryside towards the distant seascape.

This part of Cornwall is among the most desirable and sought after in the county.

The long tracts of sandy beach at Constantine Bay, Harlyn Bay, and Treyarnon Bay are a 10 minute drive.

Scenic walks can commence from the front door step with dog in tow, heading along the creekside path to The River Camel and then onto Padstow for a delicious lunch at the famous restaurants of celebrity chefs, Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth or a day browsing the trendy boutiques and galleries.

With Tintagel Castle, Eden Project, Trevose Golf Club, Camel Creek Adventure Park and Blue Reef Aquarium all within easy reach, there are plenty of opportunities for fun family days out.

About the location


Padstow 3 miles; Wadebridge 4 miles.

St Issey is a small rural hamlet with a church, pub and village shop, just 3 miles from the beautiful fishing village of Padstow. There are several top quality bathing and surfing beaches within 5 miles and the coastal path wends its way over the cliff tops and down among the rocky coves through some of Cornwall’s best coastal scenery. The little gem of Padstow with its famous restaurants, tranquil harbour and interesting shops should not be missed, and the Camel cycling and walking trail from Padstow to Bodmin makes a great day out. Take the ferry across the Camel estuary to Rock, surf the Atlantic breakers at nearby Polzeath, visit up-and-coming Wadebridge, or enjoy the fabulous Eden Project (20 miles) - the perfect base for a perfect holiday.
