    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    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.

A lovely cottage in a small village. There were 7 of us and the cottage coped with us no problem; 2 double, 3 single and a put-me-up bed. The covered, outside BBQ came in very handy most nights.
