  • "A lovely property in a peaceful setting - this quirky ‘upside-down’ barn conversion is near enough to the beaches and yet far enough away from the bustle - the sort of place you can easily ‘get out’ or ‘stay in’ and still be comfortable."

    The owners made us most welcome and gave us some useful tips on walks for the dogs - Any fan of Poldark should remember Trerice, one of the locations used in the series, which is about 250 metres from the property and can be seen from the garden.

  • "It's a pleasure to come back to a lovely home after a nice day of exploring beaches and towns."

    Very well-equipped, lovely garden, spacious, and more. We will hopefully be back soon!

  • "A lovely property, about half a mile down a rather narrow road."

    In beautiful rural location. A quirky barn conversion, with sleeping downstairs, and living upstairs among the original wooden beams. The property was extremely well equipped, with everything one could need, and of high quality. None of the usual "that will do for the punters" here! The owners, Libbie and Chris were very welcoming and couldn't do enough to help, both before our arrival, and while we were there, without being in the slightest intrusive. We will be back, hopefully, and can't recommend more highly.

  • "We all had a great walking holiday based at Gluvius."

    Our dog made herself at home and the house was cosy and well equipped. Highly recommended.

  • "We spent a week in this fantastic cottage with our two young boys ( age 4 and 6)."

    They particularly loved that the bedrooms are downstairs and the living area is upstairs. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need for a week away. There is also a selection of DVDS and books. The location is rural but it is very easy to visit the local beaches such as Crantock and Holywell. I would definitely recommend this cottage to young families looking for a week away near the beaches in Cornwall. There is a national trust property within walking distance but we didn’t manage to fit in a visit! Thanks for a great stay, see you again in the future.

  • "We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage."

    It was spotlessly clean and just like the photos. It made the perfect base to explore Cornwall and I would certainly book to stay again. Our dog was also made welcome by some dog biscuits on arrival which was a nice touch

  • "A beautiful cottage that was spotlessly clean and all the home comforts and added extras you could want."

    The beds are amazing! So comfortable and we all slept so well. Hearing the Barn Owls in the barn next door was thrilling and added to the idyllic setting. As a family of four with children of 11 and 15 (plus Rhu the dog) the cottage gave us more than enough space to relax after a busy day exploring the nearby coastal runs and beaches. A very special thank you to Chris & Libby and to Tegen the spaniel so friendly and kind and made our stay so memorable. We will be back for sure!

  • "We had a really wonderful stay at Gluvias."

    Libby and Chris greeted us warmly and made us incredibly welcome. They couldn’t have been more accommodating and really were kindness itself. The cottage is beautiful, very tastefully decorated, warm and comfortable. So many thoughtful, lovely touches have been put into making guests feel comfortable and at home. The principal bedroom has a wonderfully big bed, tucked in with delicious sheets and gloriously plump duvet and pillows. French doors open onto a lovely little courtyard, with bird/boxes and feeding tables, which attract a myriad of wild birds. My husband set up a tripod and camera that captured woodpeckers, blue-tits, sparrows, starlings, blackbirds, robins and a myriad of other little birds. The barn close-by had nesting owls, which was a thrill. The sitting room and kitchen upstairs afford wonderful views across the fields. Comfortable sofas and a log-burning stove make curling up in the evenings a delight. The kitchen is very well equipped and provides everything you might need in catering for meals. Beautiful Trerice Manor is five minutes walk down the lane and Newquay only a short drive away. The cottage is well located for touring the surrounding coastal area, which has wonderful surfing beaches and glorious headland villages to explore. We really loved our stay at Gluvias and would love to come back again. Thank you so much Libby and Chris for all your thoughtful kindness. You made our holiday a real delight.

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


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.
