The property

A cosy, ground floor detached cottage in the grounds of the owners’ home, situated in a quiet residential street in the Cornish village of Tywardreath, just one mile from Par Sands Beach.

Comfortably furnished, this Tywardreath cottage makes an ideal peaceful retreat for two, with a sitting room, a kitchen and a king-size double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.

Outside, there is a small courtyard garden where you can relax after a day spent on the beach, wandering around the stunning sub-tropical gardens in the St. Austell area, or following in the footsteps of Daphne du Maurier, who set her novel ‘House on the Strand’ in Tywardreath.

The Saints’ Way, a popular walking trail, lies close to this Tywardreath cottage, or you can enjoy lovely leisurely strolls around the harbour in Par.

Visit the Mevagissey Museum and sample one of the many cafés in this picturesque fishing port, or maybe take a trip to Lands’ End!

About the location


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 sandy beach is a twenty-minute walk from the village, home to a main line railway station. Polkerris Beach, a 40-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.
