“Trotters is in a really peaceful, rural location and provides a great base from which to hit lots of local beaches.”
Also, Redruth and the A30 are minutes away, so ideal for exploring further afield. The cottage is the best equipped that we have ever stayed in. Everything was clean and tidy on our arrival, and all of the cottage's facilities worked spot on. We came away feeling that we'd found a proper little home from home. Will certainly look to return.
“Quite deceptive size (It's bigger than it looks).”
Plenty of space for a family of four. Very clean and well appointed. Everything you would need for a holiday.
“Nice quiet location on a farm with great beaches and walks nearby.”
Cottge was clean and well equipped . Trotters main bathroom is disabled adapted but don't let this put you off as you get a big shower and extra space.
“It was OK is all I can say.”
The facilities for disabled holidaymakers are admittedly very good. The owners could improve by adding in a shower seat but otherwise there are handrails in the right places and a ramp into the building. The property is faily hard to find and as other holidaymakers have stated, there is no sign outside the farm - we had to make an educated guess! The double bed was VERY uncomfortable - obviously very old and springs dig in and creak. We ended up putting the 2 single beds together and they were slightly more comfortable. There was no milk upon arrival, stale teabags, no complimentary toiletries, cheap scratchy single ply toilet roll and you had to pay for WiFi if you wanted it. Owners did not check in to say hi which was a little disappointing. We had the same towels for our whole stay. The local guide they supplied was from 2007 so could do with updating as many of the pubs listed have changed or closed down completely. The shower was nice and powerful which was refreshing and the garden and horse yard was kept lovely and clean - owners mowed the grass whilst we were there and was very nice to sit outside and eat breakfast. The whole property could do with modernising as it is quite dated but was cleaned to a decent standard. Dishwasher and washing machine was a bonus and plenty of cutlery and cookware available for self catering. I do think the property is overpriced for what we got, but there is not much in Cornwall in the way of disabled access holiday lets.
“Trotters was absolutely wonderful as holiday accommodation.”
It's a converted piggery (we think) and it's very thoughtfully laid out and disabled friendly. The views from the property are spectacular - and the views close by are of cows, horses and greenery. All three of us were thoroughly contented (me, hubbie and Lily the Westie) and very happy there. So sad to leave. Nearby Portreath is a marvellous little place which we should really have explored in more depth. We had some very good meals at the Portreath Arms, excellent take away (much needed on arrival after a 10 hour journey - long story!) from the Atlantic Fish bar. Also nearby is Cornwall Gold & Tolgus Mill, which is well worth the visit even if it is to just ogle the gold, silver and pearls, etc, that you can't afford. Definitely worthwhile exploring the tin mill element - just for the sheer history of the place. You'd think from all this that we didn't stir far from Portreath (and the temptation was not to) but we did - and we are thoroughly worn out now that we're home on the Island, but very very happy.
“The directions to Trotters include a statement that you need to look out for a sign marked Higher Laity Farm.”
This sign is currently not there.
“The property was very difficult to find.”
No sign indicating "Upper Laity Farm (Trotters) from the main and side roads.It took us approx. half an hour driving up and down the roads trying to find the farm! The Internet was okay but kept dropping in and out.on occasion.
“The accommodation was perfect, clean, comfortable and very well equipped.”
The location was so relaxing and again every attempt had been made to keep the surrounding grounds clean and tidy. The family made us very welcome but gave us the privacy to enjoy our break with our dogs. I would not hesitate to recommend Trotters to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in a lovely property.
“As a dog friendly cottage, could have had dog bowls, dog towel, which other cottages provide.”
Just had a note saying keep dogs off carpets A small food recycling bin for the kitchen would be useful.
“Horse stables right by property.”
.owners dogs had access to 'private' garden space, lots of flies and horse flies, ended up at doctors after being stung by a horse fly and was given antibiotics, internals need up grading

“The only downside was that the internet was very intermittent the rest was excellent”
“Great holiday made even better by glorious sunshine all week!”
Stayed here for a week with the dogs, so relaxing, we all had a great time. Struggled to the find the place, the directions needed a bit of tweak. No signs!!! But it had everything and the relaxed environment was perfect. The cottage has everything you need, I would recommend a cafetière though for those who like coffee. I took my own. We all slept so well, sea air and dog walks, and a beer at Portreath. Would definitely return here.
“This cottage was perfectly situated for all the things we wanted to do on this holiday.”
Despite being on a working farm, it was peaceful and quiet. The owners were friendly and helpful. We hope to stay here again.
“This is the third Sykes cottages that we have been to and the quality of all have first class, would not hesitate to book again.”
The booking process is easy and we were kept up to date at all stages.
“Nice little well equipped cottage.”
Well presented & very clean. The owners also supplied a tray with biscuits, tea, coffee and pepper, salt & vinegar. The only small critizm was there was very little storage space for food but we just shifted some the well stocked equipment to make a gap for the duration of our stay. Overall a very good impression.
