Property Location


Withiel is situated about 5 miles from Wadebridge and 15 miles from both Newquay and Padstow. The Atlantic Coast of Cornwall offers some of the most picturesque and breathtaking scenery in the country with golden sandy beaches at 25 locations within 20 miles from Sloe Cottage; these include Crantock, Fistral, Perranporth, Polzeath and Watergate Bay. Most of these are patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during the summer season. The coastal footpath delivers some stunning walks and incredible views through this dramatic section of coastline. Hustyns, the luxury spa and resort centre, is only 10 minutes away by car and offers day passes to the gym and swimming pool as well as a variety of beauty and spa treatments. There is also a first class restaurant. The golf courses of St Enodoc and Trevose are within easy reach.

These days Newquay's excellent surfing waters are the town's main industry, whereas it once used to be a major export port for the county's mining efforts as well as a north coast port for pilchard fisheries. Fistral Beach holds many surfing competitions throughout the year, and also hosts Run to the Sun over May Bank holiday, a VW and Custom Car Show. Both the Women's and Men's Gig Championships are held here, as is a balloon festival and surf and lifesaving events. Newquay Zoo now houses 130 different species in sub tropical gardens in the centre of the town.

Neighbouring Watergate Bay and The Extreme Academy offers you a 'ski resort on a beach' and a plethora of activities to keep even the most active occupied. Fifteen Cornwall, founded by Jamie Oliver in 2002, sits on top of the two mile beach at Watergate offering inspirational views for the young chefs and professionals to create fantastic menus from local and seasonal produce. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway just outside Newquay offers both the old and young an interesting day out. Newquay Airport has made the north coast one of the easiest places in Cornwall to get to, with regular flights from various locations across the UK. The town also has an Aquarium, a Waterworld and numerous immensely pretty beaches for the less active. Trerice, run by the National Trust and 3 miles outside of the town, is an Elizabethan manor house and garden with restricted winter opening times.

Wadebridge, once a market town, is now more widely known as being part of The Camel Trail, the cycle route out to Padstow from the depths of Bodmin Moor on the old tramway route. You can hire a bike at the start of the trail and cycle to Padstow, now famous for being home to Rick Stein's The Seafood Restaurant, amongst others which the celebrity chef owns in the town. From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Stein's empire in Padstow.

The Royal Cornwall Show ground at Wadebridge hosts the county show every June, come rain or shine, and is opened each year by a member of the Royal Family. Cornish farmers have had to diversify in recent years and so has the Show, but they have kept their traditional roots with steam engines being shown next to the shiny new high-tech tractors. It's not every day you get to see formation JCB digger dancing in the main ring. The National Trust have three properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas & Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell, famously built in a disused china clay pit.

Excellent cottage, very clean and comfortable.

Excellent accommodation, very clean and comfortable and well equipped. Great location for where we wanted to explore whilst on holiday. The only negative was that on a couple of occasions we were woken very early in the morning with the cows and farm traffic, although this may have just been the time of year. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone.

A perfect escape

Cottage was easy enough to find even if the lanes are a bit windy. The cottage is absolutely stunning the location is breathtaking to look at right out of the door. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Beds were lovely and comfy the whole cottage was so cosy. The log burner was such a bonus especially as the weather was turning colder when we booked to stay. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

A great spot to chill out!

The property was initially hard to locate but once there we were delighted with the accommodation. Every requirement had been thought about and the kitchen was very well equipped. The hosts has left us a very generous welcome pack - a lovely surprise. The beds were very comfortable and the shower excellent (much better than some we had encountered in the UK!). We were lucky enough to have excellent weather and it was lovely to return to the Cottage after a full day's touring and relax in the courtyard with a drink and dinner. We have very fond memories of our stay at Sloe Cottage.

This was a lovely place to stay for our first family visit to Cornwall. The owners met us on arrival, showed us round and answered any questions. The property was clean and had everything you could need. Wifi signal was good and essential being as often no phone signal. This was a peaceful place and a good find as family were staying in another of the cottages - very handy to just pop round! We would happily visit there again.

A little gem in Cornwall!

Slow Cottage is the perfect retreat for a family, everything possible is provided, furnished to a high spec, yet comfortable in all ways. Layout of cottage perfect for extended families, grandparents ensuite haven much appreciated. Location ideal for reaching all areas of interest. Discovered Polkerris Beach and Trevone, both beautiful. Support from owners regarding local pubs, restaurants very helpful as well as prompt action concerning main shower. We would be very happy to return, children loved outside area and adults found challenging morning A?runA? routes (uphill either way!) Lovely gesture to discover, milk and essentials, including Prosecco on arrival.

Relaxing New Year Break

Very comfortable cottage, very well equipped and clean. Owners were extremely helpful on arrival, taking time to explain how things worked, including heating and log burner. Good base to explore but do have to drive everywhere for groceries etc. Be aware that mobile phone signal isn't great and WiFi slow but this isn't necessarily a bad thing if you want to relax.

From the Owner:
We are sorry to hear you were not happy with the wi-fi. It is always our aim to make our guests stay as enjoyable as possible and if there is a problem however small we endeavour to put it right. In January we stayed in the cottage on three occasions, once for five days and twice for four days. We have been monitoring our internet speed over the month which fluctuated between 39Mbps to 69Mbps. We also watched catch up TV and streamed films with no problems. I can only think that during your stay you were not always connected to our router but connected to a nearby router with BT FON. This has happened to us on several occasions. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our cottage and that the internet speed did not spoil your holiday. We hope to see you again.

Perfection

This was our 2nd year staying at the beautiful Sloe Cottage, it's in a secluded and peaceful location, there are several other cottages in the courtyard and a Dairy Farm behind the cottages, but both times it's not affected our stay in any way. The cottage is spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The owners Chris & Shirley were very helpful in agreeing a 3rd dog to stay, I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely cottage to anyone, in actual fact I can see us staying there again next year. Our party considered of 4 adults & 3 small dogs.

A lovely cottage equipped with everything you need and more. The friendly owners greeted us on our arrival and left us milk, tea and coffee, also a pretty vase of flowers on the table. The location allows you to visit the north and south coasts. We went to Fowey, Charlstown, Looe, Polperro, Falmouth, St Ives, Padstow and Newquay. We also played golf at Holywell bay. Our only regret is that the weather was so good we did not get to use the lovely log burner.

Cottage was excellent with a lot of thought gone into what people might need. Heaters and blankets for those lovely cornish summers! Kitchen had everything for a meal indoors and for those not packing quite enough for the weather. Only issue we had was our Sat nav taking us through every narrow lane possible.

Lovelly cottage away from it all

Myself and my family stayed in Sloe cottage and thought it was a very nice comfortable cottage , we also used the wood burner as the week we stayed was quite wet and cold and it was brilliant. I think it has got some lovelly walks you can go on in the summer (we gave it ago when we were there but sadly quite wet) with some good views in places of the Cornish countryside Also may I say thank you to our hosts who also posted a charger and lead we forgot there when we left.

Having just returned from a fantastic week in Cornwall, we are just about to book again for next year and Slow Cottage is where we'll be staying. Chris & Shirley have really thought about everything you could possibly need when staying away from home. The cottage feels remote but is only a short drive from most of the main attractions. There are also gorgeous walks from the cottage to be enjoyed!

Sloe Cottage far exceeded our expectations. It was a real home from home and simply everything we could have needed was provided.The warm welcome of fresh flowers in a vase, coffee, milk in the fridge and a packet of cookies was a lovely touch of hospitality. The location was beautiful and if we are ever in Cornwall again we will certainly make a bee-line to Sloe Cottage. We stayed there with four adults and our American travel companions were really impressed by the cottage and it's facilities. We couldn't have wished for more.

Great base in North Cornwall

Sloe Cottage is one of the prettiest properties we have stayed at in North Cornwall. Tucked away in the quiet, rural village of Withiel but not far from either Wadebridge or the North Cornish beaches, it is without doubt the best-equipped property we have ever stayed at. The vast range of cutlery, crockery, cooking implements, sofa cushions,towels is amazing, the bbq is excellent and the location (set around a kind of village green) meant that the children had lost of space to play. Luckily the weather was great during our stay but the TV and music system meant that there was also lots of inside entertainment when needed. A very well-kept and charming property which we can fully recommend to others.

Sloe Cottage

Beautiful cottage. Everything you might need is there. Only negative aspect was the Cockerell. Woke us all up every morning at 4am which was very annoying as we didn't get as much sleep as we had hoped for.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Sloe cottage. We have put a lot of time and effort into up grading the cottage since buying it in March 2015 and are continuing to do so. We are sorry the cockerel disturbed your sleep. Cockerels are common place in a country setting and we think beyond our control. They come to life when it gets light which is currently around 5.50am according to Google. If we can think of any way to rectify this annoyance we will.

Great holiday at sloe cottage, would highly recommend

We had a great short break away staying at sloe cottage. The location is close to the coastline with some great beaches to visit and a woodland walk only minutes from the cottage, which the children loved. The cottage itself is very comfortable, has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, it really is a 'home from home'. I am looking forward to our next stay at sloe cottage, and would highly recommend to family and friends.

A lovely Spring break. .

We had a lovely stay in Sloe cottage which we found exceptionally well equipped, notably in the kitchen area. The bedrooms are very pleasant with comfortable beds.We enjoyed the quietness there and walks locally and found easy access to both coasts. Once we got there we found it much easier to get to the cottage from the Bodmin road via Ruthenbridge rather than the recommended approach.

Very nice cottage in a courtyard location. Very well appointed and very comfortable We have two dogs and the sheltered location with off road parking and no traffic was ideal. 20 mins from Padstow and Bodmin makes the cottage relatively well connected. 1hr to St Ives. 1hr 30 to Lizard.

a lovely little cottage but with some issues

Location and accessibility: Having visited and stayed in cottages in North Cornwall for the past 8 years, we elected to stay a little further south this year in order to access places such as Eden, Heligan and the Minack Theatre. Hence Sloe cottage centrally located near Bodmin was an ideal location for us. The routes into the cottage from either the A30, A39 and from Wadebridge are complex and honestly I relied on sat nav to get me to the cottage on every journey. The windy roads are fun at first but get a little tiresome as there are a lot of blind corners and so have to be driven at a very slow speed. The payoff is that the cottage is off the beaten track and you really do feel that you are in the country! Condition Upon arrival is was apparent that the complex is well maintained. Parking could have been an issue as we brought 3 cars and the designated car park was full. We managed to park on the slip road next to the cottage and kept one car in front of the cottage, so in the end its wasnA?t a big deal. Slow cottage itself was clean and are tastefully decorated. The 3 bedrooms were a good size and the living room could fit 6/7 on the sofas. We had an issue with the entry step, but having discussed this with the owner this was promptly rectified. Comfort Our biggest bug-bear was the fact that there was only a single bathroom (containing the toilet), which shared between 7 was a big issue and meant that the mornings were slow as everyone took their turn getting ready. A separate en suite is definitely needed. The installed shower wasnA?t great but ok. The other problem were flies A? there were a lot of them! This I guess goes hand in hand with staying in the countryside, but aside from a can of aerosol there were no other fly deterrents. The fireplace was a great touch and warmed the cottage very quickly (and plenty of tinder / logs located just outside of the cottage). Wifi coverage was good and the applicances (microwave, dishwasher) were in good order. The outside BBQ and chairs were also in good condition - and in the afternoon sun was a lovely space to mingle and chat to the other guests. Other points: The welcome folder could do with an update A? for example there was a nice place to walk (next to the stream) the dog just 2mins away, however this wasnA?t highlighted in the welcome folder. Also there was no mop / vacuum cleaner in the cottage (later found out that a hoover was available in the cleaners cupboard A? again should have been mentioned in the folder). Verdict: a nice cottage in a good location, but the bathroom issue was a problem (may not be an issue for smaller groups). The field and stream down the road also makes it a great place for dogs.

From the Owner:
The Cottage is advertised for 6 guests only.Another bathroom would be ideal but unfortunately there it would mean taking a bedroom away.As to parking we do not expect 1 cottage to bring 3 cars extremely unusual.I am sorry about the roads but it is the same in a lot of parts of Cornwall. Comment by Cornwalls Cottages: Since David Jackson wrote the above reply, the property has changed hands (in 2015) and the new owners have made a number of improvements to the property, including the addition of an ensuite shower room with WC.

A comfortable stay in a beautiful rural location

Sloe had all the facilities we needed and provided a great base for the North and South coast. The rural location was quiet and relaxing. We had too many places on our agenda to explore more of the immediate countryside, but it looks like you could spend all week doing that. The barbeque was cleaned out for us and charcoal and lighters were provided - a nice touch. We were pushing the limits with 7 people and one bathroom - ideally for any more than 4 people there should be two bathrooms, or at least a separate toilet. The flies were a bit of nuisance and probably warrant some more permanent fly-zapping solution, although this did provide some pre-dinner sport with rolled-up news-papers. :-)

From the Owner:
Reference this review.Sloe Cottage is advertised to sleep 6 persons not 7.As a favour to Mr Dickens I said he could bring an extra person.I was delighted he enjoyed all other aspects of Sloe Cottage.
