Characterful property, occupying a wing of a traditional Cornish longhouse, within easy reach of beaches and harbour towns.

An enticing stone cottage in rural situation near Truro in a complex with three other similar properties, this is a cheerful couple's retreat. If you fancy a romantic escape to Cornwall, this holiday home is a superb choice because it is found equidistant between the two coastlines and close to many of the top visitor attractions in the region.

The Trap House's interior and setting evokes romance and creates a unique and special atmosphere. This gorgeous cottage is equipped with all you could possibly need for a cosy break away with one another to keep warm in the colder months and comfortably refreshed in the summer time.

Only 3 miles from the cathedral city of Truro with its choice of shops, restaurants, pubs, riverside walks and cinema, there's lots to occupy you. Be sure to stop by the National Trust-managed Trelissick House for a satisfying day out. Go visit Newquay if you love beaches and fancy trying your hand at surfing. Newquay Zoo is worth a look as is the colourful aquatic life at the Aquarium. Ensure you take a trip to St Agnes/Cligga Head for examples of the local tin mining heritage or Perranporth for even more great beaches (all within 12 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
