Relaxing New Year Break

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

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.

Lovely location and enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

Great for families with dogs, very relaxing and spacious. Only improvement is the en suite shower a bit unreliable temperature wise but except for that I will thoroughly recommend and will hope to visit again in the future

A lovely, well equipped cottage in a quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
