Holiday Rental House
Set in the grounds of a 17th century manor house, Cornish Cottage is an excellent base for exploring south Cornwall all the year round. Only two miles from Penzance and five miles from St Ives. Decorated and renovated by us to a high standard with a double bedroom and a twin bedroom with single bed and an adult size two-berth bunk bed. Kitchen and diner/lounge. Toilet/shower room. Patio area with grass, own designated parking space right outside. Fully double glazed and centrally heated with new state of the art heating which can be wi-fi controlled by us in the colder seasons to ensure that, when you walk in the door, the cottage is warm and welcoming. This is a quiet site of 11 acres of landscaped grounds with tennis courts and pitch and putt. There is a children's play area. Everything ...Set in the grounds of a 17th century manor house, Cornish Cottage is an excellent base for exploring south Cornwall all the year round.

This is a quiet site of 11 acres of landscaped grounds with tennis courts and pitch and putt. There is a children's play area. Everything is provided, including bed linen, full size cooker, fridge/freezer, all kitchen utensils, plates, cups, baby cot and high chair etc. You just need to bring towels and tea towels. We take bookings for any week of the year but facilities on the site are open from 10th February to 31 October. They include reception to sort any problems (open all year round), bar/restaurant, launderette (open all year), heated swimming pool and sauna. Our only rules are - sorry NO pets and absolutely NO smoking inside. Whereas all cottages on the site can pay for WiFi operated by the site, our cottage No 16 is the only one with exclusive free super-fast (26 Mbps) WiFi. This is because we needed a phone line to connect to our heating and the WiFi is an additional benefit of having that. Our cottage is kept at a minimum temperature of 17 degrees all the year round whether occupied or not (raised to 21 degrees 24 hours before you go in) so you won't be met by that cold damp feeling that makes your heart sink when you walk into most holiday cottages in the winter. We like comfort - if you do too then this is the base for your fantastic south Cornwall holiday.More

About the neighbourhood
This is a holiday destination for those who want to avoid being woken up at 3 a.m. by rowdy crowds of teenagers. The only sound at night is the owls. Two miles from Penzance, five miles from St Ives. Close enough to Penzance to have takeaways delivered if you don't want to go out. Hosts of excellent pubs and restaurants for evenings. Many, many miles of beautiful beaches within easy reach - both on the north and south coasts. Easy shopping with Tesco's, Morrisons, Lidl and Sainsbury's within a couple of miles. City of Truro is 40 minutes, Falmouth is 50 minutes.
Getting around
Two miles from Penzance, five miles from St Ives. City of Truro is 40 minutes, Falmouth is 50 minutes. There is a bus route nearby and the train station is in Penzance, to enjoy this to the fullest - a car is preferable but not necessary as there are local taxis too.
