  • "Wonderful location, on the edge of a quiet village on the Saints way path."

    We love walking and had a great me hiking the hills and coastal path and then returning to the coziness of the cottage. Well equipped kitchen, all beautifully clean, quiet area and attentive hosts- ensuring all was well on our arrival. I had a question later in the week which they answered and sorted immediately. Couldn't ask for better service. Definitely reccommend it and would happily return.

  • "The cottage is situated in a nice and friendly village."

    The accommodation was nice, clean and the owner was very engaging and willing to help with queries on travel. For our first time in Cornwall, we had a very busy time and used the cottage mainly to sleep and have breakfast. I would highly recommend the cottage and the area to anyone wanted to explore Cornwall as we did.

  • "We had a lovely week at Pebble Cottage."

    It’s a great location in a small quiet village with some great pubs a short distance away and an ideal base for walking and exploring the coastal path. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay and a lot of love and effort has gone into making this a cozy, pretty and home. We were lucky enough to have amazing weather so we could also spend time in the courtyard (although the local seagulls at 4am were a tad challenging with the windows open but that comes with the territory). Cathy was great at keeping in touch to make sure all was well with our stay and there was a lovely welcome package waiting for us - I am now addicted to those Cornish ginger biscuits and had to go buy more every couple of days! We strongly recommend Pebble Cottage and will definitely be back

The property

Resting in the charming village of Tywardreath, a short walk to the beach, 3 miles from Fowey and 10 minutes from The Eden Project, is Pebble Cottage, a mid-terrace cottage bursting with character, ideal for families to escape to the coast․ The cottage is situated on The Saints Way, a quiet no-through lane which from the front door leads into the pretty countryside one way and into the village centre the other.

Offering a delightful, fully enclosed courtyard garden with no steps to the rear and stunning original features, this dwelling is the perfect base from which to explore Cornwall.

Immediately to the front of the property is one private car parking space․ Stepping into the property, from the hallway the bright and airy sitting room welcomes you to kick off your sandy boots and relax in front of the TV with your loved ones on the plush sofas, while the electric woodburning-effect stove gives the room a light, amber glow.

From here, the property continues into the generous kitchen and dining area, with all the equipment you could need to enjoy some delicious home-cooked meals, such as a large fridge/freezer and an electric hob and oven; this is sure to be one of the social hubs throughout your stay while you plan your day over your morning coffee.

Just off the kitchen, you will find a handy utility space, fit with a washing machine and plenty of games and kit for the children of the group to enjoy in the sun.

Completing the ground floor and climbing the stairs, the first of two bedrooms invites you to drift off, hosting a king sized bed and ample storage for you to unpack your belongings.

The second bedroom, a family room, is home to a king-size and a single, so there are flexible sleeping arrangements for smaller families; this room also boasts stunning views over the garden, while the character continues on the ceilings with its sloping eaves and white beams.

Finishing off the first floor is a convenient family shower room, featuring a walk-in shower, basin and WC as well as a useful heated towel rail, which you can take advantage of when drying off after an action-packed day at the beach.

Savour a glass of wine of an evening on the patio while your four-legged friend stretches their legs; the courtyard is delicately decorated with raised flower beds and hosts seating in the suntrap patio area or a large alfresco dining table where you can catch up on the day's events.

Immerse yourself in the surrounding areas; there are plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants in the nearby villages and towns, while in Tywardreath itself you can enjoy a range of tasty meals in The Strand Bistro, located in a bright conservatory area at the New Inn pub, and also has its own village shop.

The pretty harbour town of Fowey is 3 miles away and there is a regular bus service from Tywardreath if you want to leave your car at home.

Par Sands Beach is within walking distance from the property and dog friendly all year round, where adults and children alike can bask in the gorgeous sandy beaches and lapping seawater, or perhaps discover some of the inland gardens such as Marsh Villa Gardens, seemingly small but home to a vast collection of plant life for you to discover.

If you are travelling with younger guests, Camel Creek Adventure Park is a short car journey from the property, whereas the animal lovers of the group can enjoy days out to Newquay Zoo or Fowey Aquarium, there really is fun for all the family.

Enrich your experience by venturing out to some of the nearby historic sites; the Historic Port of Charlestown, once a bustling harbour this compact village harbour is now a popular site among tourists for its beauty․ Charlestown is famed as a filming site for Poldark too!

The Eden Project is just a 10 minute drive away and The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Mevagissey are 25 minutes drive away from this cottage.

Lanhydrock, a National Trust property and gardens is also close the abode, while further afield in Truro the magnificent Truro Cathedral is another popular tourist attraction where you can embrace the views and culture of the town.

Make Pebble Cottage your base for a memorable stay with the family in Cornwall.

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.
