    Very quiet spot in St Minver, but short drive to great beaches and Wadebridge.

  • "Lovely cottage, with everything that you would expect to find in a holiday let."

    When you go out try the fourways inn for excellent food. Love daymar beach. Healeys cider farm now charge to go around the farm, please leave as its a total rip off

  • "We had a brilliant stay ."

    The cottage was lovely. Perfectly situated , close to coastline and attractions. There were thoughtful extras, such as BBQ coals and condiments , a great selection of books too. My only criticism would be that our party found both double mattresses were very uncomfortable ( but you can’t please everyone ) and the bedding and pillows had seen better days ( so it might be worth taking your own ) it wouldn’t stop me from returning though. The hosts were delightful , the area perfect for exploring . All in all an excellent holiday in a fabulous place .

  • "The cottage itself was as expected."

    Lovely location. I do have a few tips which could hopefully help future guests, I wish I had been aware myself... I would recommend bringing a stick on/suction black out blind if you have children in the twin bedroom, the curtains don't do much to keep the light out, same for the double bedroom (we ended up putting blankets up as it was so light come 5am!).

  • "For a winter break Groom's Cottage was ideal."

    In fact by the evening it was too hot and we were shedding jerseys. The Tysons were extremely welcoming and had anything been wrong we would have confidently asked for their help. We enjoyed their selection of DVD's and the cosiness of the cottage. The only blemish was when the oldest of a selection of pans came unscrewed after our last lunch!

  • "We had a wonderful holiday (18th-25th October 2019) at Grooms Cottage."

    It is in a very quiet and pretty location, a few minutes walk from an excellent local pub, where we (and especially our dog) received a very warm welcome. The cottage is very warm and has everything you could possibly need for a home from home experience. The owners were friendly and helpful and happy to ensure we had a great holiday. We enjoyed it so much, we have booked to return next Spring with some family members, including our little granddaughter. (The cottage also has a high chair and stair gates). All in all, a fabulous holiday and the beautiful weather we had for our coast path walks was a bonus!

    Plenty of beaches locally. Owners of the property excelled in making our stay as comfortable as they could. Would stay there again and will recommend it to family and friends.

  • "Several relatively small issues but all add up when put together."

    1. Needs a clear bin routine. No grey bin for general rubbish, was told to leave black bags outside, clearly this wouldn’t work with foxes, cats, seagulls etc... 2. Very limited supply of bin bags. 3. All crockery mis-matched, chipped etc... 4. Kitchen utensils extremely cheap & flimsy! 5. Beds and pillows extremely uncomfortable, hard, lumpy or past there best. 6. Outdoor seating, clothes line, pegs have clearly lived outside for many years without any maintenance, cleaning etc... 7. Outdoor paving dirty, uneven, wobbly. Again very little maintenance or cleaning. 8. Not peaceful or relaxing due to hammering, banging, power tools from the maintenance men starting at 8:30 - 17:00, every day from the owners property, next door. 9. Private driveway used as a shortcut by maintenance men. 10. The Fourways Inn at the top of the road is a lovely warm, friendly local pub serving excellent meals and drinks! A much needed escape. OK and would be perfectly acceptable but certainly not at this price. More 2 star than 5 star!

The property

This grade II listed, detached, 18th century, ‘upside down’, former groom’s cottage is right in the heart of the sleepy village of St Minver.

A stylishly renovated property, it provides lovely, all-year-round family accommodation in this popular part of north Cornwall.

Steps up from the private courtyard at the front of the cottage lead to a glazed front door and hallway with traditional flagstone floor and three ground floor bedrooms, a four-poster double with en suite bathroom, another double, a twin and a separate shower room.

Also on this floor a very useful utility room with a further shower cubicle.

Up on the first floor, an open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and cosy sitting area with wood burning stove, perfect for planning the day ahead’s adventures.

Outside, a private courtyard with garden furniture and barbecue, and a terraced garden at the back, perfect for relaxing at the end of the day.

For pub grub, head to the village’s good food pub just 200 yards away.

If you're feeling energetic, try out the water sports centre and sailing school at Rock, just 2 miles away where you can catch a foot ferry across the Camel estuary to lively Padstow.

For golfing fanatics, there’s a fine course at St Enodoc.

In a peaceful location, this is an excellent cottage for families with easy access to north Cornwall's beaches and attractions.
