Comfortable very peaceful house.. Very comfortable living room with lots of seating. Dining room part of living area was good as made it social. Also kitchen was separate but accessible and so this also made it a social area. Slept really well because of peaceful location. Nice outdoor seating for midday to afternoon.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Corkys Cottage .. The cottage was so comfortable to come home to after a day on the beach . The equipment provided was most adequate and the cottage and surroundings were perfect . We had in earlier years rented some of the cottages when they were all owned by the occupiers of the main house and even had the pleasure of chatting to the gardener/maintenance man who was there in the old days . Will certainly hope to book with Sykes again if we can . My sister already has !!

We would like to draw your attention to the following issues regarding this .... We would like to draw your attention to the following issues regarding this property -
No instructions at all regarding use of equipment ie cooker or storage heaters, only how to light wood burner
Need new diaphragms in toilets downstairs and en suite
Only realised by default use of towel rails in both bathrooms again no instructions
Bed in main bedroom far too big for room
Bed in 2nd bedroom appalling very uncomfortable and too small for 2 adults to share bedsheet did not fit
Twin beds very creaky and uncomfortable even for children to sleep on
We hope you take on board our constructive criticism and inform the owners

Everything was superb.. Cottage was fully equipped with all that was needed. It was a home from home & very cosy & warm. We were there for new year & when we arrived, there was milk in the fridge, biscuits, tea bags, sugar & coffee. The swimming pool & games room was a great hit & if you needed to do any washing, there is a great launderette next door which had an honesty box. We took lots of food as we wasn't sure how far the shops were, but there were supermarkets a short drive away, so next time, we'll do some shopping once we're there.
There were several cottages on the site, so a home from home of different sizes, but I'd certainly recommend Corkys cottage for larger parties. It was very quiet & peaceful. We'll certainly go back.

5 happy adults and 2 happy children.. Roomy cottage and well equipped kitchen. Very comfy bed (en suite room). Pool large, clean and ideal for a morning dip or anytime on a rainy day.
We had the pool to ourselves on a few occasions.
Loved Bude. Will return to this cottage in the future.
Mr Sinclair, October 2019
The peaceful surroundings of the holiday home and the welcome rest.. The holiday home exceeded our expectations in every way.
The personal touches suggested it was a loved and cared for cottage.
Corky’s worked brilliantly.. Lovely enclosed garden for our dog, lots for the children to do- they made full use of the pool, games room and super play area. We slept well as the beds were really comfy. We loved our holiday.
Had a thoroughly enjoyable week in and around Bude.. Corkys Cottage was situated in a small complex which my Grandchrildren absolutely enjoyed.
The photos on the sykes website do not do this lovely cottage justice.. It was beautifully clean when we arrived, and equipped with everything you need. There were even games for my boys to enjoy. It is in close proximity to the beaches and a nice little pub up the road that we walked to , the pub was also dog friendly
The cottage had wifi which isn't advertised in the listing.
The laundry room is very good with an honesty box, we took our own detergent too which I'm pleased about as the soap dispenser was not working.
The swimming pool was enjoyed by my children and they used this every day, the changing rooms were clean and spacious. The only sad thing was that there was issues with the boiler on a few days which meant I couldn't use it and the boys had to get out early as they got too cold.
I enjoyed our week here so much I'd go back again. Can highly recommend.
We have rented many cottages over the years for our UK based holidays & this was by far the best equipped.. We prepped & cooked Christmas dinner with little stress! The self contained garden meant we could relax in the knowledge that our inquisitive pooch wasn't going to wander off. Inside was so warm & cosy yet spacious enough for the 6 of us plus the pooch. Take plenty of 20p's for the pool table in the games room!
Plenty of room for all 7 of us.. Very clean and comfortable. The garden for the dog was great. Having a swimming pool and games room especially for the children was brilliant.
Photos of cottage do not do it justice.. This is a beautiful cottage in a lovely setting. It also has wifi, which is not mentioned in details of cottage. A perfect place to stay and plenty of room for a large family.
It was a fabulous large comfortable holiday cottage just over 2 miles outside of .... It was a fabulous large comfortable holiday cottage just over 2 miles outside of Bude
We had 5 in our party two couples and myself mum and the rooms were massive
Could sleep more as there was a sofa bed in lounge
Swimming pool on site and games room large gArden fir dogs including big patio and furniture
And a big kitchen so no one felt cramped scrupulously clean one bedroom en suite plus large family bathroom and a downstairs loo
I can’t fault Skye’s thus is the second cottage I have holidayed in of theirs and I would certainly keep on using them well done Skyesabd thanks fir a great holiday
Corky's Cottage was outstanding and met all of our needs.. Although initially we felt is was dark inside this proved a real bonus as it kept the cottage cool during what was a very hot week. The pool was excellent and we often had it to ourselves. Even our little dog was happy as the owners had obviously put a lot of effort into ensuring the garden was escape proof and therefore she was free to enjoy come and go as she pleased.
Lovely cottage - a real home from home .. Bedrooms very comfy and 2 bathrooms and an extra toilet downstairs was great for 7 people. The pool was great as was the games room. The garden was relaxing and fully enclosed -perfect for the dog too. Thank you
Cottage had everything you could possibly need, definately home from home.. The swimming pool and games room were a big hit with the children using both everyday... had an amazing stay... a definate thumbs up.
Absolutely wonderful week at Corky's cottage.. The cottage was home from home so there was no need to pack the kitchen sink ! Stayed with my teenage boys who loved the cottage and the facilities. The swimming pool was a big hit and we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves for 3 hours each afternoon. The showers/changing rooms were lovely and clean and warm.
The games room also went down well, so well, there was hardly a need to go off site.
We will definitely return, and maybe squeeze in an adults only trip to make the most of the country walks that are available on the doorstep
Would definitely recommend this accommodation
The cottage was very well equipped had more than information said swimming pool great and nice and close to everything ..
Corkys Cottage is really lovely and we had a great week there.. Renee & all her team as always do everything possible to make sure you have a wonderful holiday.
Corky's Cottage was great, everything we wanted was there and we all felt at home. The log burner was great. It was a very quiet place with great views and is close to beaches. The children loved the pool and games room. We will be booking Corky's again, thank you for a great holiday.
The cottage was perfect for a family holiday. The indoor heated pool was great. The wood burner was lovely for the evenings. Beds were comfortable with lovely linen. All very well equipped and lots of extras. The venue was good for getting to other areas and easy to get to Bude.
The cottage and amenities are top notch. This is our second stay at Trevalgas Cottages and definitely not the last. Corky's especially is a home from home. Of course the area is stunning, with great pubs and a shop not too far. Loved it.
A superb property, very well equipped and a real home from home. The enclosed garden made having the dog with us much easier. An excellent base from which to get out and see North Cornwall. Many thanks to the owners.
Cottage was without a doubt the loveliest we have stayed in, certainly a home from home not wanting for anything. Log burner was brilliant which is why we choose this cottage.
Everything we needed was in the property. We had 3 children with us and they enjoyed the games that were provided by the cottage. The swimming pool was great and the laundry rooms were facilitated with everything we needed. The games room was also a success.
The cottage was perfect for Christmas with our family. Everything you could possibly want was there. It was warm cosy and comfortable with plenty of games to choose from and DVD's and CD's as well.
Everything we needed was there. It was also very comfortable and warm, in an excellent area and the pool was brilliant as was the games room. Totally brilliant holiday and would recommend to all my friends.
