You are recommended to visit our own website under the 'Send Enquiry' section at the bottom of this page, where you can see exactly what is and is not in the cottage.

The Holiday Lettings site no longer allows us to use a guest book section, so you can see what a good time people have had in the cottage, they prefer the Trip Advisor Reviews but guests are often too busy when they get home to fill them in and so we are putting some of our guest comments below. You can see all our guest comments from the day we opened on our own website at

"Welcoming, friendly and lovely accommodation!"

We were made to feel welcome straight away - the hamper was such a generous touch. Borrowed DVD's and spoke to John and Lorinda with ease. Clean and tidy accommodation. A lovely stay!

"A lovely cottage perfect for a relaxing break or exploring Cornwall!"

I booked Sticky's Place for a week's break with my boyfriend. Honestly, as well as the positive reviews on Trip Advisor, we chose Sticky's as it was a more affordable option and seemed to be a good location for visiting different parts of Cornwall. We weren't disappointed!!
I had been a bit apprehensive as the cottage is located in the back garden of the owners' house but I needn't have worried as the main message that came across when we were greeted by our excellent hosts was to make ourselves feel at home while we were there and not to be afraid to ask for anything at all.
The cottage is small but perfectly formed and provided very comfortable accommodation for our 7 night stay. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedroom furniture offered ample space for us to unpack everything and really settle in. A folder in the cottage gave a comprehensive guide on local restaurants, places to visit and instructions on how to use the equipment in the cottage.
Our favourite part however has to be the outdoor hot tub. We were allowed to use this whenever we wanted to, within reason, and it really was a treat!
The location of Sticky's was perfect. Although there is not much in Nanpean itself, the cottage is only a short drive from the town of St. Austell and only 1.5 hour approx drive to Lands End so it wasn't too far from anywhere. We didn't use them ourselves but there were also bus services with stops located very nearby.
Our hosts were extremely kind and welcoming and although they left us to enjoy our holiday without interruption, they were always more than happy to help us when we had any questions about Sticky's or the area.
Sticky's offered a comfortable stay, value for money and a personal touch we wouldn't have experienced in other accommodation. We would definitely like to visit again and have already recommended you to our friends. Thank you!
