Honeysuckle Cottage is 250 years old and is a traditional Cornish Cottage which has been sympathetically extended and modernised whilst retaining many character features. It has been furnished to a high standard with the comfort of holidaymakers in mind. It stands in a quiet wild flower banked lane used, in the main by dog walkers, hikers, cyclists, horseriders and our neighbours 100 yards away. It overlooks meadows and is surrounded by mature woodland. It has the added advantage of a 16th Century pub a five minute walk away and a well equipped shop/post office/off licence. The Cottage is suitable for families, couples, hikers and cyclists and is pet friendly. Families will love the nearby beaches and the many attractions including the Eden Project.

It has been furnished to a high standard with the comfort of holidaymakers in mind. It stands in a quiet wild flower banked lane used, in the main by dog walkers, hikers, cyclists, horseriders and our neighbours 100 yards away. It overlooks meadows and is surrounded by mature woodland. It has the added advantage of a 16th Century pub a five minute walk away and a well equipped shop/post office/off licence. The Cottage is suitable for families, couples, hikers and cyclists and is pet friendly. Families will love the nearby beaches and the many attractions including the Eden Project. For those wanting to walk or hike, the area has many footpaths. Cyclists are also well catered for with a dedicated bike trail close by which runs from St Austell to the closest beach at Pentewan and then onto Heligan and Mevagissey. Those wanting to visit gardens will not be disappointed as there are a number in the area including the Lost Gardens of Heligan. With all these attractions and pursuits at hand, this cottage is an all year round destination. The autumn and winter seasons are also great here at Honeysuckle Cottage and ideal for a short break (or longer if wished). It is magical when the log fire is burning - why not toast some crumpets or make a Cornish cream tea. Maybe later it is time for a large glass of red wine before or after visiting the local pub which is a beautiful 17th Century pub and only(5 minutes walk away down the lane.. A perfect way to end a day after, for example, a trip to the ice skating rink at the Eden Project (you don't need to pay to go into the Eden Project) which opens October to March. Perhaps you would like a walk along the coastal path, on one of the beaches or in nearby Kingswood. A winter walk through the Lost Gardens of Heligan is always a treat . If a peaceful time after Christmas is what is required, Honeysuckle Cottage can certainly provide this. Just curl up with a book by the fire and watch the horse riders and dog walkers pass by. The cottage sits on its own so is secluded but not isolated. Our dog guests also tell us that it is a great place to stay. The Cottage is ideally situated for touring Cornwall as its central position means that nowhere in the County is much more than 1 hour away.More

About the neighborhood
St Austell is some 2 1/2 miles away and is a bustling town with shops, restaurants and a cinema. Sporting activities which can be found include tennis, horseriding, fishing and and several golf courses including one at Polgooth. Its history is steeped in china clay and tin mining. Polgooth (meaning 'Goose Pond'), where the cottage is situated, was a large tin mine supplying Phoenician traders with tin 3000 years ago. Most of the mining ceased in1894. There is very little to show of its history although the old count house survives as does one of the old engine houses and a stamping mill - all now converted to private residences.
How to get there
By Car By Air - Newquay Airport (16 miles) By Train - St Austell is on the main London (Paddington) line By Coach - National Express to St Austell then by regular bus or taxi
