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. George G 2018-07-28
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! Yavanna_x 2018-07-27
Absolutely terrible! At the time of writing this England has been in the grip of a phenomenal heatwave that has lasted more than two weeks. Despite this, upon our arrival the cottage absolutely reeked of damp and mould. It is deeply unpleasant to spend any amount of time in the sitting area. What is also not disclosed is that the cottage is situated right at the entrance to the property, and because of the folks occupying the other cottages there is constant stream of traffic along a noisy gravel road, which passes only inches from the front door.
The cottage is also not romantic in the least. It is dull, dark, depressing and mouldy. Really not conducive to romance!
It was so bad that we left after only one night, which meant kissing goodbye to more than ?600. The owner really couldn?t care less.
Avoid at all costs! Other reviews on Google and Tripadvisor also mention the mouldy smell, so please don?t think I have an axe to grind. Well, actually I do. I will most definitely be taking this up with English Tourism. A TripAdvisor Member 2018-07-07
AVOID!! Damp, musty smelling and uncomfortable. My partner and I have recently been having short breaks away and have stayed in many lovely places but had to move out of Coachmans after one very uncomfortable night.
The 'mezzanine ' floor is more of a shelf , is extremely uncomfortable and reached by a ladder which I, as a fit and able person felt was unsafe as it's treads have been so polished with years of use. The so called 'mezzanine' floor was so cramped my partner , who's 5' 3" had to continually stoop to avoid banging her head.
Note that a review in 2012 said the place was 'dated' and personally I would describe it as merely VERY basic 'bunkhouse' type accommodation DEFINITELY NOT a ' romantic , character cottage'.
The only clothes storage is a hanging space by the front door ,which is very inconvenient. We were kept awake through the night by the bathroom fan which kept switching itself off and then on again.The only way of keeping it quiet was to clamber down the ladder to remove the fuse from the fuseboard meaning there were then no lights!
The place is built hard up against the side of the valley, which when we were there was running with water which explains the damp and musty smell as having windows on just one side of the property means it is not possible to properly 'air' the place. Consequently , to clear the musty smell we had to open the front door in the morning to get some amount of fresh air into the place . Not ideal in October !!
We moved out having found a beautiful place with Classic Cottages who we would heartily recommend ..... Unlike Sykes Cottages, and the owner of this very poor accommodation , who are currently both refusing us any refund for the money we have wasted on our ruined holiday in Coachmans . Shameful !!
I have never taken the trouble to write a review before , but I really felt it was necessary to set the record straight about this place, and the poor service I feel we have received from the owner and Sykes Cottages , who it turns out do not inspect their properties ,which I would suggest can then lead to misleading descriptions such as 'Romantic ,Character Cottage' .... ' Coachmans ' is certainly NOT that in my view!!
Buyer Beware , of 'Coachmans' and Sykes Cottages!! Chris N 2017-11-26
Had an absolutely wonderful time at the cottage. The grounds and the cottage exceeded our expectations, we are hoping to come back to the same place very soon. Found the owner extremely welcoming and helpful. Miss Rogerson 2016-03-08
