  • "Very comfortable and well appointed."

    Everything was very clean. Spacious lounge with unusual curved wall and several windows giving a lovely view. A welcome pack of Cornish tea, coffee and milk in the fridge. We took our own to be prepared but there were tea towels, washing up liquid, and dishwasher tablets . We cooked in the oven several times and there was a selection of well used baking trays. Only comment here is that the inside of the oven door wasn’t cleaned and we wiped off old food stains. The towels were pristine white and soft however one bath towel and one hand towel each is not enough for a week. We had taken some of our own. The swimming pool was like a warm bath and we had it to ourselves each time we used it. I do think the toilet should have been fixed though as the lack of it limited our time in the pool. From the promotion of Willow cottage we thought there was only one other on the site and hadn’t expected to see others in the vicinity although this was not detrimental to the location. Many local attractions are accessible. We enjoyed our stay and visited Fowey, (some very steep hills), Newquay Zoo, the Eden Project, Charlestown harbour and Mevagissey. There was plenty of literature in the cottage. There are lots of other places to visit and if staying longer we would have gone to the Seal Sanctuary. A car is essential but we found parking quite expensive. We would happily return except for us it is such a long drive. Everyone we met was very friendly.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Willow cottage."

    It was very comfortable and well stocked for self catering. My only issue was it was too hot and we couldn’t adjust the temperature of the heating control. I would definitely recommend you to friends and family though.

The property

Perched in the idyllic hamlet of Penpillick near Tywardreath, Cornwall, is this spacious two-bedroom cottage, Willow Cottage at Greenacres.

Enjoying a superb location and beautiful countyside views, with easy access to the coast and the bustling town of Fowey, as well as shared on-site facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool and a barbecue area, this is an ideal dwelling for couples or a family of four.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, where you can whip up culinary delights in the well-equipped kitchen, ready to enjoy at the dining table for four, or alfresco out on the front patio with a backdrop of stunning valley views.

On warmer days, why not fire up the communal barbecue and indulge in a spot of alfresco dining?

After dinner, kick-back and relax on the plush seating in the sitting room in front of the woodburning stove, as your favourite show plays out on the Smart TV.

Freshen up after a day of adventure with a relaxing soak in the bath with handheld shower, before retreating to one of two beautifully decorated bedrooms, a double with en-suite shower room, and a twin, both with their own TV so you can snuggle up in front of your favourite shows.

For your local amenities, head over to Tywardreath, where you can dine at The New Inn, order fresh fish and chips to go from The Catch or stock up on essentials at the convenience store.

The world famous Eden Project is located just a few miles drive from Willow Cottage.

Continue onto Par, where you can spend a fun-filled day at the beach, wandering along the renowned South West Coast Path, or refuelling at The Welcome Home Inn and the Par Inn.

Next stop is Fowey, home to an excellent aquarium, St Catherine’s Castle and the exceptional National Trust site of Fowey Estuary.

From here, you can hop aboard a ferry which will take you to the popular destinations of Looe and Polperro for a memorable day out with loved ones.

For your next coastal escape, look no further than Willow Cottage at Greenacres.

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 dog friendly sandy beach is a fifteen minute walk from the village or 5 minutes in the car, home to a main line railway station. Polkerris Beach, a 30 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.
