    • “pleasurable”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage was in a delightful area with a host of local pubs offering supurb local cuisine, it was also ideal as a starting point to discover the wonders that cornwall had to offer,, close to Newquay, Lands End, Mevagissey and also ideal to explore the likes of pendennis castle in Falmouth or tintagel castle, the home of king arthur and tales of the round table. Truro is nearby and a dlightful place to shop in its small alleyways,, a must see is the brewery at St austell,, mmm(hic),, The cottage itself was of a high quality with everything needed all in and the hosts where most accomadating,, on arrival after a 7 hour journey, to find tea, coffee, milk and fresh fruit on offer was a lovely touch, as where the fresh flowers. In essence this is a must stay place to go”

    • “The cottage is well equiped with all that is required for a relaxing holiday. A real treat to find milk, tea and coffee waiting on arrival, as well as a bowl of fruit. The cottage is fully centrally heated keping us warm and cosy through out our stay. Our only sliight downside was the lack of lighting in the lounge making reading difficult with our ageing eyes.”

About the location


Falmouth 4 miles; Truro 10 miles.

A small hamlet just 4 miles from the maritime town and harbour of Falmouth. The surrounding countryside offers rolling fields, country lanes and misty, atmospheric creeks that wind their way inland from the sea through deep, wooded valleys. The area is perfect for lovers of breathtaking countryside, for enjoying time in boats and for long country walks. Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches will keep you occupied for hours. Its old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, Pendennis Castle and the stunning new National Maritime Museum complete the picture. Across the harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes).
