    “Brilliant hosts, fabulous accommodation, but the double bed in the master bedroom was a little too cosy for me & my husband!”

The property

Poppyfields Stable is a beautiful detached retreat set in a peaceful wooded area within the private grounds of a historic Cornish country estate. Minutes from the surfing beaches at Porthtowan and Portreath, it is perfectly placed for exploring the rugged north coast of Cornwall. Within a short drive is the iconic 14th century Carn Brea Castle, which has been made an UNESCO world heritage site. The restaurant inside the castle is a unique place to dine and the views are jaw-dropping: reaching for miles in clear weather. Also found close by, Tehidy has the largest area of woodland in Cornwall to explore, plus an 18-hole golf course.

In nearby St Day is a traditional butcher, shops, pub/restaurant and post office and an excellent pub in the next village of Vogue. A little further afield are the world class beaches, picturesque harbour, independent shops, local galleries and foodie restaurants at St Ives. The vibrant maritime town of Falmouth, home to Henry’s VIII’s Pendennis Castle, The National Maritime Museum and one of the world’s deepest harbours is only 20 minutes by car and well worth a visit.

Hop on a passenger ferry to the exclusive waterfront town of St Mawes, the National Trust’s Trelissick Gardens, the cathedral city of Truro and the famous Helford Passage and Frenchman’s Creek. Approached by a private lane, guests appreciate the privacy and tranquility of this unique and secluded location. Guests are instantly welcomed by the cosy wood burning stove in the tastefully furnished living space. Leading on to a modern fitted kitchen with all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. At the other end of the property, the ground floor en-suite bedroom has twin beds which can be combined on request to form a super king size bed. The first floor hosts a romantic master bedroom with patio doors to a private balcony and a bathroom with an impressive free-standing bath. The covered balcony with bistro table and chairs provides the perfect hideaway for a sundowner and from which to enjoy the scenic countryside views surrounding Poppyfields Stable. The owners who live in the neighbouring property can offer local advice for a memorable holiday experience.

About the location


Porthtowan 5 miles; Portreath 6 miles; Truro 7 miles; St Ives 20 miles.

St Day was once the mining centre for mid-Cornwall until nearby Redruth took over the title, and you can still see the terraces of granite cottages originally built for the miners. The village was originally named after the little known Saint Day or Dye (better known in Brittany). The village now has a pub and convenience store, as well as a granite, gothic-style church dating back to 1828. Six miles away is the popular village of Portreath which attracts visitors from around the world with its wild and rugged coastline. High cliffs, secluded coves and sandy, surf-washed beaches typify the area while all around are reminders of the area's rich industrial heritage. Portreath offers a small fishing harbour, shops, a number of pubs, three cafés and a Chinese restaurant, while its safe, sheltered sandy beach is a popular attraction. For a great day out, visit the cathedral city of Truro with its cobbled streets, shopping centre, theatre, museum and great restaurants, just 7 miles away, or travel a few miles along the coast and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.
