A comfortable home from home cottage set in a quaint village. The grounds are stunning but unfortunately the weather was not good so we were unable to make full use of them.The local pub was friendly and the food great. Some great walks around and a good train service to Plymouth.

As soon as you walk in the house, we were greeted with a bottle of wine and a really lovely feel to the property (very clean and well maintained).

The property was comfortable and peaceful within an idyllic setting. All mod cons, a fabulous super king bed (huge) and lovely conservatory with uninterrupted views of the garden. The owners live behind the property but were discreet. The also went out of their way to ensure your holiday went smoothly.

Perfect cottage for a relaxing holiday, centrally located to explore East and North Cornwall. The cottage was well equipped and very clean. The decor was clean and fresh but still felt comfortable and homely. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Couldn't ask for anything else and would highly recommend

Super cottage owned by a fantastic couple who gave us such a warm welcome we felt at home immediately. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The cottage was immaculately clean and well appointed with a fabulous conservatory for a late afternoon snooze and a huge whirlpool bath, great for relaxing after a day out walking.

Very comfortable and tranquil location. Hosts discrete but readily available. A beautiful place to unwind whatever the weather. Good walks from the property and good pub on the door step. Accessible from the main road via a couple of single track lanes, our SATNAV wanted to explore them all! Amenities not far by a vehicle.

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.
