    “Great location for exploring all of Cornwall”
    From the moment you arrive you can see that this is a great place to stay. The owner Melissa has tried to think of everything, from a cream tea, flowers and wine when you arrive (we don't drink, so she got us something non-alcoholic :) Thanks Melissa) to a massive store of guides, maps and leaflets, and everything inbetween. (Hair dryer, iron and ironing board, washing machine .... even a kitchen sink LOL) Please be aware, some of the write ups for the cottage may make it seem unclear about the ...
    From the moment you arrive you can see that this is a great place to stay.

(Hair dryer, iron and ironing board, washing machine .... even a kitchen sink LOL) Please be aware, some of the write ups for the cottage may make it seem unclear about the wifi. There IS wifi and it came in great for our Amazon Firestick). There is also a folder full of instruction books and tips for the cottage. Please read it, it is invaluable. (Thanks Melissa...again) The cottage is in a great location to explore all of Cornwall, so we did. Bude, Padstow, Lands End, Mousehole, Mevagissey, Newquay and other places too many to mention. A few tips to first time travellers to Cornwall (like us on this trip), if you are following the satnav then most of the country roads are just wider than the car, so be prepared to reverse to the nearest passing point. Take your time and be patient. When eating outside in Cornwall USE EXTREME CAUTION as the seagulls hunt in packs. We were witness to several ice-creams and pasties lost to these avian scavengers, LOL. Also if you intend to go and cook in the cottage please take heed of the instruction book in the cottage and turn on the extractor fan even when doing toast (if you can, leave the door slightly ajar as well). When shopping for supplies and/or petrol try the local 24 hour Tesco supermarket, while you are there grab a leaflet from "Cornwall Gold" this has an invaluable map of the area to take around with you. We planned days out around this and used it to find places nearby to wherever we were ( not that there aren't ample maps in the cottage, but you can scribble and make notes on this one). There is a hoover and a dustpan and brush for cleaning up, but if you are like we are, a pack of all purpose wipes helped for day to day cleaning and also to leave the cottage as we found it, spotlessly clean.All in all a great cottage and a great holiday (Try not to overdose on the Poldark references !! ;) )

The pretty village of Egloskerry sits 4 miles west of Launceston, quietly resting amongst the beautiful green meadows of the upper Tamar Valley. An ideal place for those seeking the solitude of the countryside, this whole area offers an abundance of winding country lanes, wooded valleys and great wildlife spotting opportunities. The nearby reservoir at Roadford offers fishing, sailing and water sports, providing a great day out for all, whilst the Tamar Otter Park and the nearby golf course are not to be missed.
