    “Perfect base from which to tour Cornwall.”

    Very well equiped cottage. So clean, fresh and warm. Quiet location. Owners live next door, available but not intrusive. Lovely short welcome on the Sunday rather than the Saturday when we arrived and settling in, very considerate owners. ...

    Very well equiped cottage. So clean, fresh and warm. Quiet location. Owners live next door, available but not intrusive. Lovely short welcome on the Sunday rather than the Saturday when we arrived and settling in, very considerate owners. Slight problem initially in that the bathroom door does not open right back due to radiatior and towel rail but one adjusts to this, the bathroom is not small. The seatee in the lounge will need to be replaced soon, Sags a bit at the back but I just placed two cushions underneath me and it was fine. No property is going to hit 100% due to the turnover of people in and out and varying size/weight. Some people will abuse the facilities, which is a shame, owners who let properties must have a nightmare keeping on top, not easy. We were out all day, every day so minor imperfections were not high on our list of concerns. Bed very comfortable, mattress and pillows very good. Would return with no hesitation. It was a pleasure to leave it clean when we departed. Has a voice text from owner thanking us for leaving the property clean and in good order, but we are in our 60s and maybe of the 'old school'.

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!

With so many things to see and do, this Tywardreath cottage is the perfect base for a wonderful seaside getaway, at any time of the year.

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 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.
