  • "Comfortable, clean, well appointed and characterful cottage."

    Nice to have the log burner on in the evening to add that little bit of warmth and ambiance. Hosts/owners were extremely welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Lovely quiet setting, central to Cornwall's attractions.

  • "A really lovely and well equipped, cottage with good access to both the North and South coasts of Cornwall, giving lots of options whatever the weather."

    Owners were lovely with good recommendations. Comfy sofa and good bed made for a cosy week away in a lovely peaceful spot. The bath and log burner were a great treat when the weather turned stormy. There is also a pretty little garden and lovely balcony which would be great in nice weather. We'd definitely stay again.

    Thanks for your nice review so pleased you enjoyed your stay always welcome to come again best wishes Barry and Viv Property Owner

    Made very welcome by the hosts. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. I enjoyed breakfast sitting on the balcony. So peaceful. Lovely walk into St Day to collect newspapers. Even met a deer in the lane on the way.

  • "Fabulous property which has been beautifully converted to high level accommodation which was perfect for our party of 4 adults to have a very comfortable holiday."

    The welcome from the owners was really nice and they showed us around so we knew how everything worked. They are on site if required or if you just want a chat or advice they were available. The location is ideal to explore the north and south coasts and the local beaches are superb.

The property

St Day 1 mile.

Located in a quiet wooded area on the grounds of a historic Cornish country estate, Poppyfields Stable is a charming getaway.

Porthtowan and Portreath with their delightful beaches are just a short drive away, making Poppyfields Stable an ideal location for exploring the rugged north coast of Cornwall.

This secluded and private location is approached via a private lane, providing a tranquil and private setting during your stay.

Look forward to conjuring up delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, featuring a handy washing machine and dishwasher, ready to enjoy at the dining table for four.

If the weather is nice, why not fire up the barbecue out in the private enclosed courtyard or graveled garden where you can savour your dinner alfresco.

After dinner, retire to the sitting room, where you can relax in front of the alluring woodburning stove, as you select a much-loved show from the TV with Freeview and Netflix.

Completing the ground-floor is a spacious twin with zip/link and its own private en-suite shower room.

Make your way up to the first floor, where you can wash away the day in the beautiful freestanding bath, before retreating to the fabulous king-size bedroom with private balcony, a perfect spot for savouring your morning coffee as you soak up the views.

If you prefer a night away from the kitchen take a walk along country lanes (torch provided is advisable) to Vogue where you will find The Star Inn which boasts good food.

Poppyfields Stable is the ideal location for making memories in Cornwall.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref: 1095341 together sleeping six guests.

Poppyfield Stables & The Old Well House

The cottages are a fabulous duo of cottages resting on the Scorrier House historic estate, just outside of St Day in Cornwall. With private south facing balconies, off-road parking, and within easy reach of local amenities and sweeping coastlines, these rural retreats are an ideal escape for a holiday in one of Cornwall's most idyllic spots. Central and conveniently located, minutes drive from the north coast and Porthtowan surfing beach, with two bars and shops, and 20 minutes drive to Falmouth on the south coast and gateway to west Cornwall. This traditional setting offers guests peace and tranquility, close to the Bissoe and Portreath cycle trail. The area will please walkers, cyclists, surfers and those looking for an alternative true Cornish location, the ideal spot for exploring. The owners who live in the neighbouring property can offer local advice for a memorable holiday experience. 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, only 10 minutes walk via country lanes. 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. Make memories to last a lifetime at Poppyfield Stables and The Old Well House. These properties can be booked together sleeping six guests.

About the location

ST DAY

Porthtowan 5 miles; Portreath 6 miles; Truro 7 miles; St Ives 20 miles; Falmouth 10 miles.

St Day 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 takeaway, 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 to Gwithian and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.

NOTE: Please give at least 7 days’ notice prior to your stay when requesting the zip/ link bed to be made as a Super-king-size.
