The property

Quintrell Downs 1.6 miles. A memorable getaway awaits you at Gluvias, a charming reverse-level cottage nestled within the Cornish countryside, just a stone's throw (approx. 4 miles to Porth) from sandy beaches.

This lovely property is situated right next to the National Trust's Trerice Manor, as well as being surrounded by lush fields, and is ideal for romantic strolls down pretty leafy country lanes amidst exceptional scenery.

Set over two floors, you enter the house via a rustic porch into the inner hall.

From there you have access to a super king room and twin bedroom, where you can unpack your belongings in the provided wardrobes before drifting off to a restful steep.

Continuing to impress on this floor is a cute bathroom, featuring a soothing bath with a convenient overhead shower when you need to get ready in a hurry.

Venture upstairs to the social hub of the property, the open-plan living space, which features quirky sloped ceilings, original beams and a welcoming ambiance.

You can cook up a storm in the amply-equipped kitchen before setting the dining table for a sociable dinner over a bottle of wine.

The sitting room is perfect year round and on chilly evenings, you can snuggle up on the plush sofa whilst watching TV, letting the wood-burning stove warm the room and provide a sense of comfort.

Outside, discover the south-facing garden with panoramic views across miles of rolling countryside.

Look out for the local wildlife with regular visits from garden birds, woodpeckers, swallows in the summer and nesting barn owls in season.

This area is enclosed, ideal for any canine companions to run around safely as you take a seat and soak up your surroundings.

Set off for a walk down the lanes where you'll come across a picturesque ford, beyond this is a farm shop with lots of Cornish produce to choose from.

Visit neighbouring Trerice House where you can enjoy the house and gardens.

Quintrell Downs and St Newlyn East are nearby, offering handy local shops where you can pick up any necessary ingredients for an evening meal, or choose to dine out at one of the village pubs, enjoying a hearty meal and refreshing beverage.

Spend a day at the bustling hub of Newquay, a popular seaside resort boasting an even wider range of shops, dining, bars, and gift shops, as well as leisure centres, a golf course, a fantastic zoo and aquarium!

Take your pick of several nearby beaches in this area, preparing for a day of sunbathing and watersports at Great Western, Crantock, Fistral, Porth, and Holywell Bay all nearby.

Soak up the surroundings along the awe-inspiring South West Coast Path from Porth Beach, spanning over 630 miles of glistening waters, golden sands, historic attractions and unbelievable views.

Gluvias is a splendid retreat promising a memorable holiday, any time of year.

About the location

QUINTRELL DOWNS

Newquay 3 miles; Perranporth 9.1 miles

This Cornish village rests some three miles south-east of Newquay, named after the surrounding area of moorland and playing host to a local shop, a couple of pubs, a garden centre and the railway station, which operates local services every couple of hours between Par and Newquay. You can also access Newquay by car, via the A392, and discover its endless supply of rolling surf, three wonderful beaches, each offering something different, and a variety of family-friendly attractions. Spend a day at the zoo or sea life centre with the kids and try out some of its finest restaurants and bars for light refreshments or a spot of lunch. The South West Coast Path is a must, attracting tourists from all over, home to an abundance of wildlife and spectacular landscape scenery, as well as picturesque beaches and hidden coves. You also have the chocolate-box fishing village of Padstow with its thriving harbour and traditional Cornish amenities, while the city of Truro has museums, its beautiful cathedral, and cobbled streets. The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and the towns and villages of Fowey, Polperro and Mevigissey are also worth visiting. This is the ideal base for exploring the heart of Cornwall.
