    “Lovely rustic cottage, although when we arrived (at about 3pm, after we'd been emailed to say we could check in at 2pm), there was nowhere to park , somebody had parked in front of the cottage.”

    We parked at the local pub for a swift pint, the other car had fortunately gone when we returned. Admittedly can't see what could be done to prevent this as it's a public road. We had no parking problems for the rest of our stay. ...

    We parked at the local pub for a swift pint, the other car had fortunately gone when we returned. Admittedly can't see what could be done to prevent this as it's a public road. We had no parking problems for the rest of our stay. Only slight gripe was that if you are any taller than me (5'5" ) you may have trouble in the shower, the sloping bathroom ceiling is extremely low even at the highest pint. I had to stoop slightly. And there was no toilet roll, although this was rectified within an hour of my calling the owner. Also, it would have been helpful to advise as to what can be recycled. The info pack says to put the refuse bin out, but nothing on what can go in the black recycling box (which was full to the brim with plastic bottles from the previous guests).

The property

Set within a row of stone terrace cottages on Belmont Street in Tywardreath, where you can amble to the village shop and pub down the road, is Humptys House.

This charming accommodation boasts a real English feel, and is well suited to couples or a small family of three looking to tour a new part of the country.

With access to the beautiful Cornish towns of Fowey and St Austell close by, and a cosy interior that warms your heart from the moment you step through the door, what more could you ask for?

Climb the three white steps on the front pavement and glide straight on through to the sitting room.

Warm your toes on the electric stove set with the stone inglenook, as you snuggle into the plush sofa adjacent.

You can watch your favorite programmes together on the Smart TV, and mealtimes are fully catered for with the pullout table and chairs in one corner of the room.

The kitchen is traditional in style, with wooden base and wall units, which you can stock to the brim with local produce you are just dying to try.

From here, you can step out into the sunny courtyard and at the front of the property is a side alley with access to the walled patio.

Upstairs the spacious king-size room is accompanied by the single room - perfect if you are traveling with a child.

The bathroom completes the property with sleek navy blue tiles.

This lovely little village has a lively community and plenty to entertain in and around the area.

Bustling Fowey harbour is not to be missed and there are some dramatic cliff walks to Gribbin Head passing through picturesque landscape.

Also, Charlestown is closeby which is an historic port near St Austell.

Stroll down to Readymoney Cove and climb up to the ruins of St. Catherine's Castle, stopping off for a refreshing beverage in the town centre.

There are many family-friendly activities and attractions in the area; Polkerris Beach even offers a water sports centre for those feeling particularly adventurous.

This coastal break is just what you need!

About the location

TYWARDREATH

Fowey 3.3 miles; St Austell 6.3 miles.

The pretty, historic Cornish village of Tywardreath, meaning ‘The House on the Strand’, lies in the heart of Daphne du Maurier country and features in her book of the same name. St Andrew’s, the village church, is said to have the best peal of bells in the area, while the village has a lively community, centred round its excellent pubs and range of shops. There are several safe, sandy beaches close to the village, with a variety of watersports and leisure activities available. Par, a small, china clay port with a dog friendly sandy beach is a fifteen minute walk from the village or 5 minutes in the car, home to a main line railway station. Polkerris Beach, a 30 minute walk or a 5 minute drive away, has a beachside restaurant, pub and watersports centre. The attractive waterside village of Fowey is just three miles away, from where there are some dramatic cliff walks to Gribbin Head, passing through much of du Maurier’s familiar landscape. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Tywardreath is a village that will appeal to families and those keen to explore the rich heritage and gorgeous coastline of South Cornwall.
