  • "A very comfortable studio room in a peaceful rural location, beautifully decorated, set in a large, attractive, well maintained garden."

    Introductory scones & cream very welcome. Location very convenient for exploring the St Austell area by car. Bus stops for Mevagissey, Heligan, Fowey etc within 10 minutes walk. I especially enjoyed sitting on the patio by the little stream.

The property

Polgooth 1.1 miles.

Perched on the edges of Polgooth, Cornwall and enjoying scenic views of the countryside is this inviting, detached cottage of Peony Cottage.

Enjoying ground-floor accommodation throughout with access to a range of sights amidst this part of Cornwall, such as Newquay, Truro and the Roseland Heritage Coast, Peony Cottage is an idyllic base for a couples getaway.

Upon arrival, you'll be relieved to discover on-site parking before soaking up your serene surroundings.

Progress inside to discover a charming kitchen fitted with the essentials needed to create those easy meals.

These meals can be enjoyed in the studio-style living room or out on the patio amongst those charming views and sounds of the trickling stream; why not pop open a bottle of fizz and make a toast to this romantic escape, too?

After dining together, cosy up on the leather sofa and switch on the TV to enjoy a movie night together before retiring to the sumptuous double bed.

In the morning, progress to the well-presented shower room, where you can freshen up in the spacious, walk-in shower ahead of a day packed with explorations; where will you go on your adventures, Porthpean Beach or Caerhays Castle?

No matter what you get up to here, you'll have a relaxing base to return to at the end of the day with a stay at Peony Cottage.

Note: This property can be booked with Refs. 1013646 and 1104060, together sleeping up to seven guests.

Rose Villa Barns

Rose Villa Barns consists of a charming selection of three cottages resting on the edges of Polgooth, Cornwall. This collection offers stone-built, pet-free accommodation with private outdoor seating areas and parking available nearby, making it suited to couples or small families looking for a relaxing base from which they can explore the delights of The Roseland Heritage Coast. The surroundings enjoy a mixture of countryside and seaside, with the beaches of Porthpean and Pentewan resting within reach, alongside the mesmerising attractions of the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. If you don't fancy cooking, why not visit the Kingswood Bar & Restaurant for bistro-style cuisine, or perhaps the Polgooth Inn, a 16th-century pub labelled 'one of the finest in Cornwall'? Alternatively, you can pick up ingredients for a home-cooked meal from Polgooth's convenience store. For a day out packed with coastal fun, pay Mevagissey a visit, where the attractions of Mevagissey Museum, Mevagissey Model Railway and the Mevagissey Aquarium are bound to keep you entertained. Further afield lies the lovely village of Charlestown, where the fascinating Shipwreck Treasure Museum, access to the Crinnis Cliff Battery via the South West Coast Path and Charlestown beach can be enjoyed.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Mevagissey 5 miles; St. Mawes 18 miles; Truro 14 miles.

With its history rooted firmly in tin mining, the village of Polgooth is now a quiet settlement on the outskirts of St Austell, frequented by visitors enjoying the area's outstanding countryside. Just 3 miles from the sea, the village is close to several lovely beaches, and the south-west coastal path also runs close by. The area has a host of visitor attractions, with the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Tall Ships Harbour at Charlestown all within a 15 minute drive. The quaint fishing harbour at Mevagissey, with its passenger ferry across the bay to Fowey, is just 5 miles away, and the beautiful Roseland Peninsula with the villages of St. Mawes and St. Just-in-Roseland lies just a little further. Enjoy a coastal walk and take in the wonderful views, spend a day on the beach, or visit one of the numerous attractions close by. A fantastic location, any time of the year.
