The property

This luxurious holiday home is set on the edge of the village of Tywardreath only three miles from the town of Fowey, Cornwall.

This cottage is ideal for dog owners and their pets, with so many walks available from the door and the all-year-round dog-friendly beach less than a mile away.

The dog-loving owner of the cottage offers a dog-sitting service for those who might want to go out for an evening, or enjoy a few hours away from their faithful friends.

As you drive along the leafy lane you arrive at the cottage, parking right outside, and then entering through the sliding glass doors into the spacious open plan living area.

You will immediately appreciate the luxurious furnishings and well-equipped kitchen, dining and sitting areas.

The woodburner makes those cooler evenings out of season particularly cosy, whilst the underfloor heating throughout the cottage gives comfort all year round.

There is also a sofa bed in the sitting area, offering a bed for two, as well as a beautiful king-size bedroom which, like the living area, has a door through to the bathroom.

You can relax outside on the shared patio which has a barbecue, where you can dine alfresco whilst enjoying the wonderful far-reaching views over green fields.

The pretty old village of Tywardreath lies on the Pilgrims Way and, although small, offers an award-winning pub with good food, a great fish and chip shop and a famous, traditional, family-run butcher, who lists Rick Stein and the Eden Project amongst its customers.

Ideally located for touring the south coast of Cornwall and very close to the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan, there is so much to do in and around the area, and the option to tour further afield with so many coastal villages easily accessible.

Orchard Cottage is the perfect location for a well-earned break whatever time of year.

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.
