    • “Friendly owners, convenient location, good value.”

    Mr Nally, Athlone, August 2014

    • “We arrived slightly concerned that we would struggle to reach places without access to a car, but the location is perfect. The train station is just 5 minutes walk away, as are several surprisingly well-stocked shops, with a full supermarket only 15 minutes walk. Just beyond the shops is the perfect beach for evening walks and barbecues.”

    Mr Gilbert, Harpenden, June 2014

    • “The cottage was very cosy,clean and well situated for visiting many of the attractions offered in Cornwall.”

    Mrs Richardson, Hailsham, May 2014

    • “Nice touches such as milk in the fridge and cookies on our arrival. Plenty of local information and a quiet location handy for buses and trains. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Eden, lost gardens of Heligan and coastal walking.”

    Mr Smith, Leeds, March 2014

About the location


Fowey 3.3 miles; St Austell 6.3 miles.

The pretty, historic Cornish village of Tywardreath, meaning ‘The House on the Strand’, lies in the heart of Daphne du Maurier country and features in her book of the same name. St Andrew’s, the village church, is said to have the best peal of bells in the area, while the village has a lively community, centred round its excellent pubs and range of shops. There are several safe, sandy beaches close to the village, with a variety of watersports and leisure activities available. Par, a small, china clay port with a sandy beach is a twenty-minute walk from the village, home to a main line railway station. Polkerris Beach, a 40-minute walk or a 5-minute drive away, has a beachside restaurant, pub and watersports centre. The attractive waterside village of Fowey is just three miles away, from where there are some dramatic cliff walks to Gribbin Head, passing through much of du Maurier’s familiar landscape. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Tywardreath is a village that will appeal to families and those keen to explore the rich heritage and gorgeous coastline of South Cornwall.
