  • "Pretty much what we expected."

    Good value. Slightly more claustrophobic in the bedroom than I had expected (I'm quite short, I thought I would be able to sit up on the bed. I was wrong). Would probably be happy to stay there again should we be returning to the area, we had a lovely time.

    Hi Jane, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and thanks for the positive feedback. The bedroom is quite cosy! I agree that it is necessary to duck below the beams ,however , I would just like to reassure future guests that sitting up in bed to have a morning cuppa or read your book is not a problem. Glad you had a lovely time and hope to have you back at the Rashleigh's. Best wishes, Mark Property Owner

The property

Rashleigh's, a wonderfully-presented, converted stone-fronted cottage is nestled in the charming village of Tywardreath, Cornwall.

The perfect pet-friendly couples retreat, Rashleigh's is close to local amenities and just a short walk away from a beautiful beach.

Soak up the sun-drenched Cornish coast and enjoy some quality time together in this snug and inviting cottage.

After parking up, enter your new home-from-home to be instantly welcomed by the characterful living/dining room, complete with a woodburning stove where you can curl up on cooler evenings.

Moving through to the kitchen, whip up delicious meals, and enjoy them with a glass of wine at the dining table, or head outside to the enclosed garden for a breath of fresh air, where you can sit and relax on the furniture or enjoy a romantic evening under the stars.

When sleep calls, you'll find a mezzanine-style double bedroom that's perfect for a romantic couples' retreat.

After a day of exploring the beautiful Cornish coast, freshen up in the ground-floor bathroom with a long soak or revitalising shower and complete your routine, ready to hunker down and catch your rest.

In the morning, escape to the nearby harbour town of Fowey, filled with meandering streets lined with traditional pubs, shops and eateries, as well as historical sites from the The Polruan Ferry to the ruins of St Catherine's Castle.

Spend a day at Par Sands Beach and St Austell Bay, two beautiful locations for soaking up the sun’s rays, paddling the shores or getting lost in a good book as you listen to the sound of the waves crashing along the shore.

Alternatively, head to the bustling town of St Austell, home to the Eden Project, Poldark Mine & the Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum, and numerous beaches such as Par Beach and Charlestown Beach.

With Lostwithiel, Mevagissey and Polperro also within accessible reach, you’ll never be short of things to see and do.

Be sure to make the most of your visit to Cornwall, with Rashleigh's proving the perfect place for a base.

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.
