    The cottage had all the essentials needed, and the locals were very helpful and friendly. A great shop and pub a few steps away. All the information shared before and during the visit were well received and really helped make the stay. Thank you very much!

  • "A lovely well-kept cottage in a very peaceful location."

    Very handy pub across the green (which we had visited a few times before a few years ago) and our dog loved the green just outside the cottage door where she could play each day with her beloved ball. A good shop and cafe just a short walk down the road and we found the locals to be friendly too.

    Our stay was lovely and we appreciate the cottage all the more during several days of wet weather. The pretty village of Blisland in Spring time with flowers everywhere made it just perfect.

  • "Cottage is a lovely location but very damp."

    Having a 3 month old baby with us, this spoilt our holiday as the cottage smelt very strongly of damp and the dehumidifier had to be emptied several times a day. On reporting the issue to HH we had a very negative and dismissive response and then eventually a visit where our concerns were pretty much dismissed. The cottage was then accessed on several occasions without our knowledge or permission when our possessions were in the cottage which really is not acceptable, no offer of an alternative was made or any sort of recompense. We ended up having to move down to Lavethan were the rest of our family was staying. Having stayed in many helpful holiday cottages in Cornwall and Devon over the last 10 years I am really shocked that the 1st tine we have an issue we are dismissed with no resolution. Its not what we or our family would expect and we are so disappointed that the 1st holiday we have been able to have as a family ended up being spoilt by accommodation that wasnt really fit for purpose especially when there is a new baby in the party.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are sorry to hear of your concerns and would like to clarify some of the points you have raised, as comments of this nature have not previously been raised in feedback. When notified of the issue initially we took this seriously and asked you to submit photographs and then contacted the owner of Churchgate Cottage. We then arranged a visit with members of our Quality Assurance team. We did not access the property without your knowledge, you met with members of our Quality Assurance team by prior arrangement with you. Following this visit, the housekeeper attended the property to check the storage heaters were working correctly and found that they had been turned down - once she adjusted this they worked normally (there were also other heaters and an electric fire available for your use). The Quality Assurance report found no evidence to suggest that the property was damp and therefore no reason to offer an alternative property or recompense. Property Owner

  • "Had a great time and generally loved the cottage."

    Some of the kitchen utensils were dirty which is why we did not give top marks for cleanliness The only thing that lets the cottage down is the complete lack of any private outdoor space. This is not made clear in the listing, it is simply not mentioned. We had glorious weather and just the ability to sit outside with a glass of wine or a cuppa would have made this perfect. It was for these reasons it was not 10’s across the board.

  • "Cottage was lovely."

    A classic Cornish cottage. Was bit further away from beaches than we wanted but that is my failing to account for the small roads. The communication with you however was slow and disappointing. I have been emailing and calling since May about extending the stay as the cottage Was not booked the day before we arrived. I did not actually get a response until a week prior to arrival and by that point I had booked a local B&B. I sent the email chain and names of those I spoke to and that was still Unknown when I speak to the next person. I was happy to pay for an extra night. A real shame. Your response to emails and calls could be improved and keep records of calls so that the customer doesn’t need to start all over again every time!

    Highly commend the efforts of volunteers to keep the community shop and P.O. going and the incredible friendliness of everyone including the Blisalnd Inn. Just one note; it was difficult to get enough hot water for a reasonable bath even after using the boost switch. After a lot of walking, that would have been appreciated.

The property

Churchgate Cottage is a 17th century cottage situated beside the church in the heart of Blisland.

With views over the traditional village green, it is a dear little cottage with a warm welcome.

Head into the cosy open plan living space with charming beams, where you can snuggle up beside the electric fire or prepare meals in the well equipped kitchen.

At the end of a busy day, the two bedrooms are cosy and comfy with views of the green or church.

If you don't feel like cooking, just wander across the green to the good pub for supper or the village shop offers a café and internet access.

If cycling is your thing, the Camel Trail will take you on a family-friendly level route through lovely countryside and along the estuary as far as Padstow.

A visit to the sea is a must, either to the picture-book fishing harbour at Port Isaac or the fabulous sand/surf beaches at Rock and Polzeath.

For town amenities, Bodmin is within easy reach and you can visit an old jail there too if you dare.

With good walks and lots to explore in the area, Churchgate Cottage is an excellent village base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Bodmin 5.7 miles; Wadebridge 8.4 miles; Polzeath 13.2 miles; Tintagel 13.8 miles; Padstow 16 miles; Fowey 17.2 miles.

Situated under the western edge of granite-bound Bodmin Moor, the village of Blisland retains its age old character and is the only village in Cornwall to have a village green with trees. Around the green, cluster old houses and cottages, as well as the famous, award-winning Blisland Inn. The village is located less than three miles from the A30, and so provides an ideal central location for touring Cornwall. Nearby, Poley’s Bridge marks the beginning of the Camel Trail, a 17-mile long route, which follows a long disused old steam engine railway line to Padstow. The route is completely traffic-free and perfect for walkers and cyclists. You can even explore the trail on horseback and a purpose-built hide has been constructed between Wadebridge and Padstow, so even birdwatchers are catered for! Pull on your walking boots and explore Bodmin Moor, or venture to the coast with your buckets and spades and enjoy a day on one of the many beautiful beaches that stretch along Cornwall’s northern coastline. A fabulous part of the country for all!

Note: This property does not accept children under 5 except babes in arms.
