No 5 Carlyon Road Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Situated in the peaceful village of Playing Place, this charming 1930s bungalow offers fantastic accommodation just two miles from the popular resort of Truro. Set in a peaceful location in a small copse, this property offers peace and quiet for those looking to enjoy a break from modern city living. With an open fire in the sitting room, an electric fire in the dining room and a mature, established garden, this property is equally pleasant whether you're enjoying a winter evening by the fire, or a summer drink on the lawn. With numerous shops, restaurants and various other activities close at hand, this is a fabulous property in the heart of a fun-filled region.

Set close to the River Fal and only two miles from the vibrant town of Truro is the quiet village of Playing Place. This aptly named holiday resort is ideally situated for exploring the creeks and hidden reaches which work their way inland from nearby Falmouth. Renowned as a centre for boating and sailing enthusiasts, the village boasts a shop and post office as well as a number of riverside pubs and restaurants in the near vicinity. With its lush wooded valleys and wildlife rich coastline, the area is an ideal spot for walkers and cyclists whilst the nearby towns of Truro and Falmouth are also worth visiting for their wonderful shops and other amenities. The Trelissick Gardens are within easy driving distance and make an interesting place to visit, as does the Helford River.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

Gas central heating with electric fire in dining room and open fire in sitting room. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, DVD player. All fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen inc. in rent. Large enclosed garden with garden furniture. Off road parking for 4 cars.

Excellent cottage rental with everything provided, warm cosy and in a very peaceful location. The owners have been most thoughtful in setting up this rental and were most welcoming. The garden is very secure for dog. There were plenty of interesting places to visit locally. We thoroughly recommend this property.

Exploring Cornwall was great, and it is such a beautiful, friendly county! This is the second time we have used Sykes to book our holiday and I'm sure it won't be the last. The communication via email is excellent. We also found the dog friendly beach map in our property very useful.

The cottage is in a nice quiet lane but not too far out of Truro. A good centre for touring around. The cottage had all we required and we were very happy.
Miss Cadby
October 2008
The property was very central for all the attractions in Cornwall. It was very quiet and peaceful, and the enclosed garden meant it was ideal for the dog. There were also plenty of walks from the doorstep to take the dog out. The house on arrival was immaculate and a really nice touch was fresh flowers, biscuits, tea coffee and a pint of milk. The house itself was very bright and airy. The owner was very friendly and welcoming on arrival and we were left undisturbed for the rest of the week.

This bungalow was just perfect for our one week stay with dog. It was ideally situated just 2 miles from Truro ( where our friends live), it had some lovely walks for the dog in the vicinity.The owner was very welcoming. It was warm and cosy especially when we lit the open fire in the evening!! Very clean and comfortable, we would have no hesitation of booking again.
August 2013
Arriving after a long tiring journey we were met by the extremely pleasant and helpful owner who made us feel very welcome. The bungalow was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the pet friendly garden perfect for our two dogs. It was very central for exploring Cornwall and the only disappointment we had was that we only booked one week, next time it will definitely be two.
October 2014
We found this holiday rental to be the best we have ever stayed in, owner very welcoming on our arrival after long journey, and everything possible provided. Warm and cosy and very clean. Beds very comfy, bathroom shower so efficient we are going to buy similar model. Bed linen provided (good quality duvets!) only took our own towels. Kitchen modern and all equipment easy to use and there were instructions for all equipment within the bungalow. The dog enjoyed herself in the well contained garden, we had no qualms about her being out there on her own. There was a Spar shop just up the road but supermarkets in and around Truro and lovely beaches & gardens to visit within a few miles. We joined the N.Trust and visited all the gardens we could and dogs were welcome in ghe majority of the gardens, and after 1 October allowed on beaches. We would definitely rebook in this area of Cornwall, in the same property if possible!

it's like a holiday where you take your own house with you. We recieved the keys on time. The home was very tidy. After being there before it was a little like coming home. The home is in quiet location and it has a very large garden. Within a minute you can get on the road to all directions. The neighbours are very nice and quiet people. The house has a good standard..(dishwasher, washingmachine etc...)
