3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Our 300 year old cob cottage has 3 bedrooms, sleeps 7, and is situated in a quiet village just 15 minutes from the north coast sandy beaches. The cottage is located in the quiet and peaceful village of North Petherwin. The cottage is ideal both for families - with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do during your stay, beaches, surfing, pub meals; and for couples, who are looking for a romantic break from the hustle and bustle, having quiet coastal walks or a glass of wine in the cottage garden or in front of the wood burner. The Master Bedroom has an new luxury ensuite bathroom. The detached cottage was the village Post Office many years ago, and boasts beamed ceilings and an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner and bread oven.

There is a king size sleigh bed in the master bedroom, an iron framed double bed, and bunkbed and...

This was a lovely old cottage, spacious and set in a quaint village. The owner,Julian had told us about a walk near the church which was handy as we arrived before time to get into the property so we were able to walk the dogs, this was a lovely wood which we went to every morning,a five minute walk from... more

Management response:

The gate is a little tricky, you have to lift it a little as you open/ close it......however this does prevent the gate swinging freely and blocking the road and causing an obstruction to the occasional tractor! With reference to the guest book, great idea, as long as it's used positively, I.e. Recommendations of pubs, local attractions, walks and beaches.... more
