Lovely getaway
We came here for 10 nights and had a lovely welcome from Robin. Everything you need is in this cottage, hairdryer in bedroom and everything you would need in a kitchen. The cupboard at the end of the kitchen is used as a wardrobe also and has iron/ironing board and airer. Though the two seater sofa is old, it was very comfortable though the arm covers spoil it, there's no point as they don't even fit. There was also plenty of really hot water! The smell in the cottage is of ?woodland? that's the only way to describe it. It's surrounded by greenery even at the back of the cottage and also a stream. We hung clothes out on the rotary washing line in the garden on Thursday morning it was a scorching hot day but when we got back at teatime everything was as wet as on the morning. My partner put the airer with our clothes up in the bedroom area the next morning behind the headboard as it was really warm up there, and the clothes were dry when we got back. The laundry facilities were great though and it was only £1 to use the washer. Take plenty of 20p pieces if you want to use the drier. The grass never seemed to dry out and that's what I think the smell is?..damp woodland and not forgetting that this is a very old cottage. I did purchase a couple of air fresheners during our stay which really helped. The gardens are stunning and the cottage was in the middle of Tintagel and Boscastle which was handy as we were able to walk into Tintagel. Overall the cottage was cosy and there were no issues with the wifi and we had a nice stay.

Recent visit
We visited the coachmans cottage recently and although things were broken like the heated towel rail and the shower screen we were happy with our stay although I will agree with other reviews that it smelt and felt damp but think that is down to the age of the property

My husband and I stayted in the coachmans back in 1975 when I was about 18 we had a lovely holiday there. So this year for our 30th anniversary we decided to go back, the place hadn't changed much but had changed, we found it comfortable and warm in the evenings and there was a log burner if we got cold, the good change was there were stairs up to the hay loft where the bed is not a ladder which was there last time in the 70s, not sure we could of done the ladder now as my husbands 72.and when he went up there I would shout mind your head, the kitchen was nice and great bathroom and shower, there was a bit of a musky smell but the cottage is built up against the cliff. And it's old there was no sign of mould it was very clean. We had a lovely holiday there reliving the memories of all those years ago, Robin the owner was very friendly and helpful the only negative is maybe get the new mattress for us old ones. Thank you Robin for letting us relieve our youth.

Not fit for human habitation
My partner booked this so called "romantic" cottage for a week as a surprise holiday. The place looked charming and decently appointed, but what a disaster. The place stank so much of damp and rot that we that we checked out after the first night and moved to a bed and breakfast for the rest of the week. The owner was was totally disinterested and told my partner "If you have a problem with the cottage, move out". Sykes cottages denied any responsibility and have been most unhelpful. Our only recourse is now to take legal action.

A beautiful place to stay!
My partner and I have stayed in coachman's for the last three years. The cottage is perfect - it is immaculate in terms of cleanliness, warm, dry and comfortable. Although some reviews mention damp we have never experienced this in the slightest. The cottages are vintage but this adds to their charm! The cottage is incredibly romantic and quaint. We wouldnt have chosen to have our honeymoon here if not! Although it is situated near a road we have never been disturbed or heard any traffic. It is in walking distance of Tintagel - only 20 mins to half an hour which is perfect as the walk is stunning. The views from the cottage are also incredible. There is a bench directly outside which allows you to sit and observe the amazing gardens and listen to the relaxing stream. The owner could not be more helpful. Each time he has offered us a lift to the station as we do not drive. We booked out the cottage during our wedding and he moved heaven and earth to make sure any re-paving was completed in time as to not disturb any of our plans. We highly recommend staying in this gorgeous property and we will definitely be returning for a fourth year in a row!
