The beds had been changed and the bathroom cleaned (though the cleaner showed up at 2.30 (we were a bit early) but the rest of the cottage was dirty and woefully ill-equipped. There was very little cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment and these were in dirty drawers. The TV didn’t work (luckily we had our laptop to watch things on). Positives were the actual cottage ...

There was very little cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment and these were in dirty drawers. The TV didn’t work (luckily we had our laptop to watch things on). Positives were the actual cottage is really pretty and there was bags of hot water and great water pressure. I’m hesitant to say yes to this review being published but numerous previous reviews mention same and nothing has been done. I contacted Sykes in advance of our stay but this was unsatisfactory.

Both Glandore and Union Hall have delightful, sheltered harbours with year-round water activities including sailing, sea angling, whale watching and rowing regattas.
