Carnsew is really lovely, just the right size for two (and a four legged friend). It's in a great location, making it easy to get out and about to explore the area. We're just sorry it's already booked for next year, but we hope to come back another time.

The cottage was lovely, very well equipped and warm. The cottage is in a lovely location, just a short walk from the main town and beach. We had a great time despite the rain and wind. Plenty of parking and the entrance was paved so limited the underfoot bits of leaves/gravel into the cottage (we had a dog with us).

Lovely little cottage which is a barn conversion. It has an enclosed garden and is ideal if you have a dog. You are asked not to leave your dog alone in the property, but we found Cornwall very dog friendly so we were able to go to some lovely restaurants with the dog in tow.

Map
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.
