For one the dishwasher was full of dishes and states that you should empty ready .... For one the dishwasher was full of dishes and states that you should empty ready for the next people, found the owñer who lives next door wandering in the garden which I thought was unacceptable I know it is his property but this was on a let and he should not have entered the garden

Mevagissey is a lovely little harbour.. Bit of a steep hill for walkers to get there though especially on the way back, but we managed with a double buggy! The cottage itself is cosy, well kept and has very useful facilities to feel right at home. The electric fire and heated towel rails came in handy for drying our clothes after washing them. All in all a very comfortable visit and a very cosy little cottage to stay in.

Lovely cottage with all good quality appliances that worked properly.. We have no grumbles.
Mrs Sheffield

We have now stayed at Harlyn twice.. It is a great place to stay with a toddler and a dog as it is spacious, quiet, clean with good facilities and a safe, enclosed garden. It is also in a great location for the nearby beaches and Mevagissey centre. We will definitely be back the next time we're in Cornwall.
Mr Horner

The description of the bungalow was entirely accurate.. It was clean and comfortable and more spacious than expected; the fact that it has a living room and two conservatories meant that there was plenty of room for our party of 5 adults and a small dog.
Mrs Allen
February 2019
A very warm comfortable property.. Our party consisted of 3 adults, a 2 year old and 2 dogs and so it was ideal for us with the extra room, also in a good position for the local amenities.

Our First stay at a Sykes cottage in December was fantastic, HARLYN in .... Our First stay at a Sykes cottage in December was fantastic, HARLYN in MEVAGISSY was a first class place to spend your Cornish Holiday and I believe that any other holiday cottage supported and supplied by SYKES would be Top of any you could find I have spent many years holidays in Cornwall and my last visit to this fantastic cottage supported by a fantastic and very helpful company SYKES HOLIDAYS WILL SUPPLY AND SUPPORT ME AGAIN MANT TIMES FOR MY CORNWALL THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN FOR MY GREAT HOLIDAY AT THIS COTTAGE EVERY THING YOU WOULD EXPECT TO HAVE WAS GIVEN TOP OF ANY I HAVE PREVIOUSLY HAD

Fantastic holiday in Mevagissey.. The property exceeded my expectations. I have a 7 month old and crawling so this was perfect. Immaculately presented and clean. I will be staying again on my next visit. Many thanks for making our holiday even better.

Harlyn is a beautiful warm and cosy and extremely comfortable cottage.. Every facility is there and it was very clean. A great garden for relaxing in and an exploring area for the dog. This is a great cottage and will go again.
Mrs Johnston
September 2018
I would have stated exceeded expectations however, the biggest downside fo us was the 13 steps or very steep path to the bungalow which was not mentioned on the property brief.. I travelled with my 93 year old, partially sighted, mother and getting to and from the bungalow was a major issue each day. I really think this should be clearly stated. Other than that the accommodation was great, very comfortable and clean and for more mobile people would be great.
Mrs Smith
September 2018
Lovely cottage with great garden Owners live 2 doors away and are very welcoming, however no welcome pack or milk etc in cottage on arrival ( something we usually find owners do which is a nice touch but not essential)! We would go back there Location is good too

We instantly felt at home in this lovely bungalow with its fabulous garden.. The accommodation is huge and worked very well for two couples and two dogs. There was so much room for people to ‘do their own thing’, either in the lounge, sunroom, garden or summerhouse. We had the rear doors open all the time we were at home and the dogs just came and went in and out of the Cornish sunshine as they pleased. Beds were comfy, kitchen had everything you could need, plus lots of comfy seating, books, games etc. Beaches in the area are to die for, especially Crantock Beach. We had a very relaxing week and did not need to drive far to find some lovely places. Can’t recommend enough, thank you

It could have been cleaned better,bedroom wardrobe needed dust wiping off shelves, dust on lampshades, also cobwebs, windows needed cleaning.. Dinning room table is supposed to seat 5 we where struggling to seat 4 when had company, on the up side the beds were comfortable, and the garden was nice but lacked sun loungers, kitchen was on the small side and lacked equipment We thought it was rather expensive for what we got, in comparison to other cottages we have rented.

We had a wonderful holiday.. I loved Harlyn - it was very spacious and the garden was the nicest of any holiday cottage I've stayed in. The rooms were very comfortable and clean and I especially liked the conservatory and sun room. We had a wonderful time exploring nearby beaches such as Caerhays, and there was lots more of interest within an easy driving distance too. We liked it so much that I've just booked a week there again for next year and I am very much looking forward to it.
Mr Beckett

Arrived in the rain and it would have been nice to have a little tea,coffee and milk to start you off so you could leave the offloading till it abated.. Other than that a very comfortable bungalow.
Mrs Kitson
April 2018
Absolutely outstanding accommodation, Harlyn was everything we could have wanted and more.. Mevagissey is a very beautiful fishing town, very friendly, and dogs are welcome in most shops and eating places. Many business owners have water bowls outside for dogs to drink from. We and our dog Snoopy were made to feel extremely welcome both In our accommodation and in Mevagissey and the other areas of Cornwall we visited. We are definitely going back next year.
Mrs Rowland

I think people should know that it is a the top of the 1/4 hill, which is hell,of a climb for the fittest of people.. And what would be nice is that there is a pint of milk waiting for you to make a cuppa after a long journey, we have never stayed anywhere that has not been provided
Mrs Noble

It was lovely to have a secure garden for my dogs..
December 2017
Our 1st time here at Harlyn we were not disappointed, very clean & cosy, enclosed garden for our dog Millie plus good walks around.5minute walk to Mevagissey. The owners who are lovely & next door we broke down on the way here & had to have our car taken home but the owners offered to get or take us for shopping at any time while we are here brilliant. We will definitely be back thank you for a fantastic Xmas.
December 2017
We have stayed at Harlyn before which was why we chose it again this time.. It's so warm well equipped spacious beautiful garden. Everything you need for a stress free break with lots to see and do in the area. Lost gardens of Heligan 5 minutes away.
Mrs Browne

Unable to understand how the heating worked.. Only 1 storage heater worked, no shaver point in either bathroom
February 2017
Having stopped in mevagissey many times we always enjoy our visits and this time was no different,the Harlyn was what we expected when we walked in which was a little out dated bungalow,it was very warm and spotlessly clean just very dated only bugbear was that on the amenities list it listed tumble dryer which may seem odd as a need to some but to us having a dog who we bath or rinse down after every walk is something we needed plus it was a winter visit so we also needed to wash and dry our things too,the annoying thing was that on our arrival we checked that we hadn't read it wrong and screen shot the full list of amenities to explain to Syke cottages that it shouldn't be on the list if it's not got one,Sykes told us the dryer had been removed the month before by the owner and it was no longer listed on the amenities to which I pointed out it was showing on our first day !!! Then told the owner had removed it from the listing when we were in the bungalow and told by the owner to use the local laundrette which was very annoying to hear !!!! Apart from that I would recommend the Harlyn,just make sure to screen shoot all listings as I did get some money back
December 2016
As fantastic holiday let in beautiful Mevagissey. Very clean and comfortable with everything we could need for a weeks stay. The garden was perfect for our dogs, safe & secure. We were very comfortable and the beds were comfy too! The internet worked perfectly which is such a nice change after being told by many other holiday rentals that internet was availiable, only to find it was not! Nice position with good parking. Would not hesitate to book this again.

Harlyn was wonderful, and we took full advantage of the cottage when the weather was bad. Very comfortable and felt like you were at home with all the pictures and decorations.
Mrs Farrand

The property was well maintained, the owners were friendly and the garden was beautiful. All in all we had a very peaceful holiday which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Mrs Evans

A lovely cottage with plenty of room for our party, and it was great having the sun room and conservatory. Will definitely return one day.
Mrs Wedeman
May 2016
The cottage was just lovely and comfortable, especially the beds and pillows. This is the first time away on holiday ever that I slept well on the first night, which continued through the rest of the week. Everything that you could wish for was there in the kitchen. The garden was absolutely lovely, well maintained with a lovely summer house and plenty of seating. Actually I don't think I can fault it.
Mrs Green
April 2016
Harlyn was a very comfortable and warm cottage with everything we needed. In particular I thought the beds and bedding were very good. The whole cottage was nicely decorated and the owner was very friendly. It was useful having a garden for our dog and also having two bathrooms is very helpful.
Mrs Blayney
March 2016
It was lovely to return to a warm, spacious, comfortable cottage and just chill out after a 'hard' day enjoying the nearby tourist attractions and beauty spots. Loved being able to follow the sun round in the conservatories and living rooms, and sit reading or chatting. There is so much to do in the Mevagissey area without having to travel far.
Mrs Simpson

A beautiful cottage in a great location.

We were lucky enough to be able to book Harlyn last minute for a new year break and I am so glad that we did. The cottage was very well equipped with a beautiful garden. Great location, close to all the places we wanted to visit and a short walk from Meva harbour. Would recommend this to anyone looking to enjoy the beautiful Cornish coast.
Mrs Harrison

We particularly liked the cleanliness of Harlyn, it is spacious and warm, a real home from home.

A lovely place to stay, it was quiet, clean and comfortable with helpful, friendly owners. A good location for many attractions and a lovely village.
Mr Horner

Beautiful property in a great area to visit all parts of Cornwall. This property is a home from home and is a credit to its owners, we would highly recommend this property.
Mrs Sage

A lovely stay, it was a very warm and welcoming bungalow. There was plenty of space and a beautiful garden. It exceeded our expectations and we look forward to another visit sometime!

I travelled with my parents, husband, niece and a dog. The bungalow was perfect for us - very spacious so we could all have our own space. There was absolutely everything that we needed and it was very clean, with a beautiful garden and easy parking. The only downside was the walk into Mevagissey. it took two of us, who are reasonably fit, 15 minutes at a reasonable pace to get into Mevagissey itself. It is not a very nice walk, down a steep, winding lane where you have to be alert for passing cars. Of course, the return journey is uphill. It would have been impossible for my elderly parents to do it.
Mr Oliver

The cottage is outstanding, the gardens are superb and the summer house was a treat in the warm evenings. This is one of the best cottages we have stayed in.
Mrs Moore
May 2015
The bungalow was of a very high standard and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The weather was not good so it was extra nice to come back to a lovely warm and friendly accommodation.
Miss Shilton

One of the best self catering I have stayed in - very comfortable and a home from home. It was very well furnished and equipped.
Mrs Gethin
April 2015
We had a wonderful holiday the bungalow and the gardens were really good. The owners were excellent and very helpful. Would recommend. We had small dog and the garden was secure. The whole place is so peaceful and relaxing.
Mr Walden
March 2015
The cottage was very well sited to Mevagissey. The access was superb and the owner was very welcoming. At the price paid for the week and the high standard of the bungalow, it would, in my opinion be very difficult to find better value for money. Will definitely return to this holiday let. We were extremely pleased, well done.

January 2015
The property well in a nice location and we were greeted and shown the property by a very nice lady. Car parking was a bit tight with a large car parked in the adjacent space almost permanently. The bungalow was well maintained and in good condition. Local amenities were within walking distance and only a walk back uphill was tiring.
Ms Weevon

Loved the bungalow, home from home. Owners live next door, welcoming and available if required. Everything provided, and a beautiful garden. Easy to travel around for by car and plenty of places to visit. Highly recommend

A very comfortable and spacious place to stay. The sun room off the kitchen was great for eating breakfast. A lovely private garden with summer house, swing seat and places to eat and sit. A great place to stay, we will be back.
Mrs Minty

The bungalow was fantastic, beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. The garden was beautiful and well maintained. Lovely views in a fabulous location. Thank you to the owner who was a lovely man and to the caretaker who made us feel very welcome. Brilliant holiday and we will be back!
Mrs Godiff

Lovely bungalow and gardens. The garden was fully enclosed which was great for our pet dog and Mevagissey was only a 10 walk away.
