  • "Our stay was a complete joy from beginning to end."

    "Perfect" is the best way to describe it all, worth more than 5 stars. (Even a shower that gives you time to step back instead of throwing a bucket of cold water over you when you turn it on. Now, that really is perfection! :-)) The owners could not have been kinder or more welcoming. The hamper with scrumptious Cornwall goodies was topped only by home-made scones. Everything was not only wonderfully clean, but also very tasteful and comfortable. Thanks so much!

    Thank you so much for your lovely review. So glad you had a good week and hopefully safe drive back via Devon. Come back anytime! Clare Property Owner

  • "The Snug is a lovely little gem that made our stay in Cornwall so wonderful."

    Compact and ideal for a twosome getaway. The layout is very quirky, with the main seating/relaxing area being upstairs in a loft conversion, and the bedroom being downstairs with an amazing ensuite bathroom attached. The whole place is very well furnished and decorated very nicely indeed. We were welcomed by a very nice hamper of food and wine as well as a few samples of the beer that is brewed in the microbrewery next door. Location wise, it was ideal for all of the places we wanted to visit, not just on the East Coast, but the West Coast too. The owners, Dean and Clare are lovely hosts, and very friendly and helpful. We will certainly visit again soon.

  • "Had a lovely stay, property is very modern, clean and tidy."

    Good base for exploring cornwall. Really loved the downstairs areas, bathroom especially nice. Upstairs snug area great for evening film watching but very low ceiling height so watch your head. The snug is attached to the owners property and personally this was quite noticeable with a connecting door but others may not mind this. But the owners were very friendly and provided a lovely hamper on arrival.

From the welcome hamper, home made scones, very locally produced beer (next door!), to the toiletries, walking books, information leaflets, everything was there. The upstairs lounge is gorgeous; you can lounge on the settee and see the moon through the skylight in the evening, or sit at the desk downloading photos from the day (as my husband did). The bed is comfy, the walk-in shower is great, well, everything was great, and next time we visit Cornwall this is where we are going to stay.

The property

Heaven for walkers, city escapees, foodies and romantics, The Snug is a luxurious getaway close to Cornwall's Riviera coastline, beaches galore and miles of stunning coast path.

Set back from the road and adjoining the charming owners home is your private sanctuary for two, situated in the heart of the pretty village of Grampound which lies on the edge of the Roseland Peninsula, a designated part of Cornwall's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Rich, luxurious and exotic, interiors have a subtle Eastern influence with wonderful colours, sumptuous textures and bold patterns.

Arranged over two floors, the entrance is onto a kitchen dining room which is totally en-trend.

Bold blue cabinets and Moroccan inspired tiles add distinction to the cooking space and upholstered armchairs encourage couples to come together and relax.

A door leads from the kitchen dining room to a quietly elegant master bedroom with a king size bed dressed in soft bed linens, good art, gorgeous prints and a swish en-suite bathroom.

Choose between an invigorating walk-in shower, which is large enough for two, or a deep bath tub for a post-ramble soak.

The Moroccan inspired theme extends to a patio with mellow countryside views and garden furniture for alfresco meals and romantic sun downers.

Wind down for the evening with a tipple beside the glow of the fire pit (in a private area of the owners garden) with blankets and hot water bottles provided.

Climb the staircase from the kitchen dining room to an intimate sitting room set beneath the eaves with a large corner settee to kick back and relax.

There is a delicious welcome hamper on arrival stocked with Cornish goodies including Tremethick Ale, which is the local beer brewed by the owner, and good books and DVD’s for cosy nights in.

The owner is more than happy to do tours and tastings at the microbrewery.

There is a large yoga and exercise room at the premises, including a step and running machines, weights, yoga equipment and a large smart TV, which can be used at the owner’s discretion.

You will find a country pub, restaurant and general stores within a short stroll.

For a wider choice of amenities, head to nearby Truro, Cornwall’s capital with shops, pubs, restaurants, galleries, museum and cinema.

The local beach is the very beautiful Caerhays Beach (Porthluney) adjacent to Caerhays Castle and Gardens and is 15 minutes by car.

The sandy beach and coastal golf courses at Carlyon Bay and Porthpean are a 15 minute drive.

The charming fishing village of Mevagissey and the historic port of Charlestown, famous for its tall ships and the filming of the BBC’s Poldark series are a 20 minute drive.

The Eden Project, with its iconic rain forest biomes, and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are also within easy reach and a must-see for garden lovers.

A little further along the coast is the stunning scenery and tranquility of the Roseland Peninsula which has great walking routes, beaches that are rarely crowded and charming fishing villages.

You will also discover the fashionable waterfront town of St Mawes which is popular among the boating and yachting fraternity.

The Snug is the perfect couples retreat for breaks at any time of year.
