Being so central and close to the major routes through Cornwall and only seven miles from Newquay means that this homely cottage, set in the heart of the ancient small town of St Columb Major, offers an ideal touring location away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist resorts.
As you enter into the cosy open plan living room you will appreciate the home-from-home feel with a woodburner to add to the warmth in the cooler months.
Guests are then lead through into the light and airy kitchen which leads out into the really pretty traditional cottage garden, a lovely place to relax, whatever time of day.
On the first floor are the two bedrooms, a double and a twin room with zip/link beds, giving you the flexibility.
Literally a short stroll from the door will take you to the assortment of shops, pubs, restaurants and takeaways.
Walking to the other end of the town, past the slate hung cottages, will bring you to the magnificent 14th century church, well worth a visit.
Also close by the Iron Age hill fort of Castle-An-Dinas, constructed some 2000 years ago, is an archaeological site of great interest and fascinating to walk around.
With the north coast being so close you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches but one of the finest is also the closest.
Mawgan Porth's award-winning beach has acres of golden sands, where rockpools abound and there are lots of caves to explore.
With stunning scenery, wonderful walks, superb surfing and great pubs, cafes and restaurants, this really is the perfect beach.
This is an ideal location for a great summer holiday or for a relaxing short break.
