The property

May Cottage is a terraced stone cottage in the pretty hamlet of Pentewan.

Stunning garden and a wood burning stove are a couple of the highlights of this cottage suitable for family or friends to enjoy.

Entry is through a stable door into the comfortable living room with lots of books, games and DVDs for those wet days or cosy evenings.

The kitchen is well equipped and includes a breakfast table.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor with a family bathroom.

Separated from the cottage by a quiet lane are two decking areas equipped with garden furniture and a large garden with enchanting views across the valley.

There is ample parking for two cars.

A 5 minute walk takes you to Pentewan beach, an adventure playground among bathers and water sport enthusiasts and a firm favourite among locals since it is so large it rarely gets crowded.

For walkers and cyclists, there is the Pentewan Valley Trail, a 4 km inland road-free path through beautiful woodland, and the scenic coastal footpath which stretches in either direction over rugged cliff tops, and hidden coves.

Unspoilt and uncommercialised, the village itself provides a convenience store, pub and well-reputed bar/restaurant.

The picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey, which still boasts a working harbour and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are within 5 miles (both linked to Pentewan via a cycle path) and the world famous Eden Project is less than 20 minutes by car.

Nestled in a sheltered valley along a quiet row of traditional cottages and away from the main thoroughfare, May Cottage is truly a cosy haven by the sea and an excellent choice for breaks at anytime of year

About the location


St Austell 4 miles; Mevagissey 2 miles.

Pentewan is a delightful coastal village set back from the sandy expanse of Pentewan Beach. The village shop and pub draw visitors from far and wide, while the beach is good for children. The coastal path passes through the village and as it climbs up the cliffside towards Mevagissey, the views across the bay toward Devon in the far distance are breathtaking. Good cycle paths pass close by the village, there is a great river close by for fishing enthusiasts, the Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a short walk away, and the historic and scenic Charlestown harbour is also close by. The nearby fishing village of Mevagissey offers many restaurants and fresh harbour fish, while the Eden Project is within easy reach and well worth a visit.
