Pentewan 1 mile. This cosy, detached one-time coachman's cottage nestles on a wooded hillside, just 1 mile from the sandy expanse of Pentewan Beach, and just 3 miles from Mevagissey's shops, restaurants and fishing harbour.

Close to the owner's house, this thoughtfully presented Cornwall cottage, with its welcoming, relaxing atmosphere, makes an ideal base for exploring the many attractions of the 'Cornish Riviera' coast.

From the cottage, there are some views of the beautiful two-acre garden, which guests are free to wander.

Pentewan village, a fifteen minute walk away, has a small shop, cycle hire, restaurant and pub, and abuts the adjacent Pentewan Sands, a safe and popular sandy beach.

Another walking trail passes nearby on its route to The Lost Gardens of Heligan (2 miles) and on to the beautiful fishing harbour at Mevagissey.

    • “The Coachmans Cottage is hidden from the road up a track. When you turn into the drive you are greeted by the most superb cottage, magnificent gardens, and lovely friendly owners and their dog Holly. This was our 2nd visit to Coachmans Cottage. We hope to visit again. Its a perfect location for exploring the local area, and to sit in the garden after a day out enjoying the area is just so relaxing. There is nothing more you could want from this cottage, beautifully presented, clean and welcoming, and a lovely cream tea waiting for you in the kitchen. Great value for money. Janet and Roger Eden and Mrs June Roberts.”

About the location


St Austell 4 miles; Mevagissey 2 miles.

Pentewan is a delightful coastal village set back from the sandy expanse of Pentewan Beach. The village shop and pub draw visitors from far and wide, while the beach is good for children. The coastal path passes through the village and as it climbs up the cliffside towards Mevagissey, the views across the bay toward Devon in the far distance are breathtaking. Good cycle paths pass close by the village, there is a great river close by for fishing enthusiasts, the Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a short walk away, and the historic and scenic Charlestown harbour is also close by. The nearby fishing village of Mevagissey offers many restaurants and fresh harbour fish, while the Eden Project is within easy reach and well worth a visit.
