It was lovely to arrive to the cottage lit up and warm and even nicer to find roses and a delicious cream tea. The cottage was every thing we needed, well equipped and spotlessly clean, perfect for the 2 of us and our dog. Yhe bed was really comfy and the shower was amazing. We will definitely be back .

This is in a wonderful location just at the back. of Hayle. The view from the entrance drive is fantastic. The cottage is beautiful with all facilities including a wet room.

A delightful, small cottage on a farm with a remote feel but good communications and local facilities, being close to Hayle and the A30, neither of which is visible from the cottage. It was immaculately presented and equipped to a very high standard. Very dog friendly with lots of good local walking.

My second stay in Carnsew. I was accompanied by 6 fellow Ramblers from Surrey, who occupied Phillack and The Foundry at Trenhayle Barns. We clocked up 46 miles on the South West Coast path during our stay. The weather was superb, as were the fresh fish shops in Newlyn! Think we will all be back again!

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.
