Ask yourself this question !, why not so many reviews about this place! This is advertised as a cottage, when it's a barn conversion ( poorly constructed) . On arrival at the property the owner of the 4 properties will call across to see you , and try to befriend you( is this to make you feel as though you should not review his place, you decide) firstly we noticed cobwebs in every room, under the kitchen table, behind the sofa, behind the bookcase, ground floor w.c , stairs areas, every room had cobwebs and spiders, the rear bedroom window did not close due to broken hinges( this should be picked up as a maintenance issue/ fault) the spider issue was pointed out to the owner, who sort of brushed it off as it's common as living in the country, when clearly it because of the poor conversion of this barn, there was gaps everywhere, around pipe, between walls, oak beams had gaps that you could slide a pencil into. This is poorly constructed and if I was the owner I would certainly be embarrassed, staying here did spoil our family holiday, as we did check out after 4 nights, we then booked into a clean hotel, what should of been a good holiday turned out to be a nightmare due to this cottage/ barn, ( empty barn adjoining this place has gaps leading and allowing mice, rats , spiders to enter this property, the front door has a 10-15 mm gap at the bottom. I have lodged a complaint with the booking agent, they where advised that the owner has installed an electronic device deterrent to prevent insects( surely this is admitting to a problem) . But after spending over 1,200 plus on just 4 nights, then having to book into a clean hotel, the owner of wheal honey has not offered any partial refund, this shows how selfish and inconsiderate this owner is, it also makes me realize that the rumours are true about Cornwall holiday property owners: that they just want your money! I will rate this 1star just for the location off the dirt track down the winding lane, where the car gets scratches from the bushes...please BE AWARE.

Cottage Review:  

A little home from home!! Arrived after along journey and we could get in early to the cottage which was very helpful as we had a little one with us.

We were greeted by the owner and showed round the property to which we discovered a lovely bottle of wine left for us and a pint of milk in the fridge, with tea, sugar and coffee available which makes a difference. Fully Kitted out kitchen including washer and dryer with washing powder to use! The sky TV with Wi-Fi was very helpful when you have a little one to entertain and you?re trying to unpack. The cottage is very comfortable and in a great location with great views and no noise, making for a very peaceful nights sleep, on a very comfortable bed. Didn?t want for anything! Would definitely stay again!

On our family holiday to Cornwall we booked a self-catered cottage. We were looking for somewhere that was kid friendly and self-catered and ticked many many boxes such as Sky, wifi, washing machine, etc. I found the cottage that ticked all these boxes and more on Sykes Cottages. Wheal Honey!

The kitchen is well stocked with under counter fridge, stove and oven, washing machine, dryer and dish washer. You also have pots and pans and cutlery and anything you'd need to cook and clean. Everything you could need from dishwasher tablets, detergent, tea bags, coffee. The hosts Ann and Howard also provided a pint of milk and a bottle of red wine which I thought was a very nice touch. It allowed us to have a cup of tea fresh from driving more than 5 hours!

All in all the cottage was very comfortable and very nicely furnished. We could even picture ourselves living there! Ann and Howard were very accommodating. Howard came to greet us shortly after we'd settled in and if we needed something he was happy to help us procure it. Even our really random request for super glue!

If you're looking for a cottage to stay in, I highly recommend Wheal Honey!

Cottage Review:  

We arrived and was welcomed with a bottle of red wine as well as loads of tea, coffee, and sugar. Plus also milk in the fridge.

The holiday cottage is absolutely fantastic and have extras which we didn?t imagine such as sky, WiFi, and even a dishwasher.

We were greeted by Howard who asked us if everything was ok and if we needed help with anything then they only lived round the corner. A folder is also provided with numbers of local services including a restaurant.

Cant fault anything with anything. The hospitality is top notch and would definitely come back.

Keep up the good work!!!

Cottage Review:  

We spent a week at this cottage from 5th July. Generally the place is very comfortable although the bathroom left a little to be desired (the mirror was not really high enough for someone of six feet tall to shave without having to duck down and there could be more shelving). The kitchen facilities were more than adequate for our needs. The location is very rural and apart from the occasional pheasant extremely quiet. The view from the back across a fertile valley to a small farm on the other side of the hill was lovely. We were made very welcome and Howard
