This holiday property is one of three character cottages in a complex, each with original features, located in a farm setting with Cornish countryside views.

With only the sounds of birds chirping to wake you up in the morning, you can be assured of a tranquil holiday at Churn Cottage. One of three characterful cottages on a working farm just over 10 miles from the harbour town of Fowey, this stone-built retreat offers a great base to explore the rest of Cornwall. After a day of lounging in the sunshine, pour yourselves a glass of wine and rustle up a home-cooked supper together, then dine alfresco as dusk begins to fall.

Whether you are relaxing in the open-plan living space or settling down for the night, you will be surrounded by a bright and airy decor. Light wooden floorboards run through the cottage and large windows are ideally placed to allow plenty of natural light. A huge enclosed garden and small patio area is the ideal spot to relax with a BBQ as the sun sets across the fields in the distance.

Visit the fabulous Eden Project, 6 miles away, and the National Trust's magnificent Lanhydrock House and Gardens, just 4 miles from the cottage. Take a drive down to the pretty coastal town of Looe, 20 miles away and drive the 9 miles to Charlestown to view its magnificent tall ships, seen in the TV series Poldark. Walkers can pick up the coastal path along the St Agnes Heritage Coast and foodies should head to Padstow and Newquay for some excellent seafood restaurants, both just under a 20 -mile drive away.

It was spotlessly clean and very homely, my wife met the owner and she was very welcoming and friendly.

This is the second time we have been to Churn Cottage and once again we enjoyed every minute. Cottage is ideal for two people who want a quiet relaxing break from a busy world and cottage fills that need absolutely. We even forgave the cows for making a mess in the lane on their way to milking each day and holding us up occasionally.

Lovely peaceful stay, despite the weather. Great welcome with tea, coffee, milk, even cake and biscuits; fresh flowers and an extra heater. We were left alone to enjoy our privacy knowing where the owners were if we needed them. Great location for exploring both the north and south coast.

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.
