The pretty and historic Cornish village of Tywardreath lies in the heart of Daphne du Maurier country. Tywardreath, which means ‘The House on the Strand’, featured in du Maurier’s book of the same name. Tywardreath church is said to have the best peal of bells in the area, and the village has a lively community centered around the excellent pubs and range of shops. Also there are several safe, sandy beaches close to the village and a variety of watersports and leisure activities available. Par, a small china clay port with sandy beach is a twenty minute walk from the village, and is home to a main line railway station, and 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.

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.
