This detached cottage in Burlwan near Wadebridge sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

Meadowside is a detached character cottage in the hamlet of Burlwan near Wadebridge. The cottage sleeps six and has a super king-size double with en-suite, a double and a twin, along with a shower room, ground floor cloakroom, kitchen, dining room and sitting room with woodburner. Outside is off road parking for three cars and a lawned garden with furniture and summer house.

Meadowside makes an ideal base for a family, couple or friends to explore this part of Cornwall, with its beaches, towns, walks and attractions.


Very little maintenance on this property.
The cottage itself is pleasant enough. Unfortunately there is very little maintenance on this property, leading to a feeling of continuing neglect. There's a strong smell of diesel throughout the property. Neither Sykes or the Housekeeper were interested in resolving this issue. The central heating was not working due to batteries in the control panel being dead. Housekeeper reluctantly changed these. From what we could see neither the fire alarm or carbon monoxide alarms were working. Coupled with the diesel problem, this was extremely worrying. Again, Sykes were informed via email, but have chosen to leave as is. Light bulbs not working, diluted washing up liquid, the list is long. In short, I've informed Sykes that we will not be booking with them again. My advice, stay away from Sykes and this cottage.

Needs more care and attention to detail
This cottage is quiet and well situated to visit plenty of local attractions including The Tate at St. Ives, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. These two features are its strongest points I think. Meadowside is in need of more care For example in the living room one electric socket was slightly loose and several light bulbs didn't work. I don't think these two faults are very important but they add to an air of neglect.The house is advertised at £1700 per week in peak season and it is certainly not worth that. The freezer is outside in a shed with the laundry equipment, and again although not life changing disadvantages, they suggest to me too little effort is being made by the owners of Meadowside. The most irritating aspect of this holiday is that Sykes who rent out the property agreed to publish my review, but have since withdrawn my review from their website.A fairly disappointing house and a very disappointing approach from Sykes Cottages
