Chock full of quirk and character, this romantic period cottage is bounded to one side by mellow countryside and incredibly convenient for the stunning north coast and beaches. Renovated from tip to toe, Menna Cottage is a gorgeous rural bolt hole for couples and families complete with a warming wood burner for winter breaks and a private and enclosed garden with idyllic far reaching countryside views.
Located in the rustic hamlet of Menna in the heart of Cornwall, the sandy beaches at the vibrant resort of Newquay are within a 20 minute drive. For guests who wish to bring their four legged friends there is Newquay's fantastic Fistral Beach, the big-league venue on the British surfing scene which has a huge tract of golden sand and no seasonal ban on dogs. For families, there is easy access to the Blue Reef Aquarium, Dairyland Farm World and Newquay Zoo and for walkers there is the startlingly beautiful coast path which traces magnificent cliff tops to Watergate Bay and Padstow. For a complete contrast head to the south coast and visitor hot spots at the fishing village of Mevagissey, the world famous Eden Project and Charlestown, renowned for its tall ships and for the filming of the BBC's Poldark series. The A30 is close as too are rural pubs serving Cornish ales and home-cooked produce.
You will discover Menna Cottage nestled beside a main road with parking for two cars in front. Step through a stable door into a twin aspect, open plan living room and first impressions are pure comfort and simple elegance. Period features including a wood burner set in an inglenook fireplace with a granite lintel, exposed beams, oak floor boards, latch doors and deep-set windows, blend with modern amenities. There is a dining table to comfortably seat four and a classic shaker style kitchen with all the mod cons including a Dualit coffee machine. Head upstairs and you will discover a pristine bathroom and two sumptuous bedrooms.

About the location
Mylor Bridge 8.1 miles; Falmouth 11 miles; Redruth 11.5 miles.
Truro is the retail centre of Cornwall with a good range of independent shops as well as national stores all within a compact city centre. With its eclectic range of art galleries, bars, restaurants, cinema, theatre, museum and outstanding cathedral this small city is a superb year round destination. Steeped in history and intriguing architecture there is always plenty to do and see. Just meandering through the Georgian cobbled streets is a pleasure in itself. With many peaceful parks all within a short stroll from the centre it is a most relaxing city to visit. A wonderful day trip can be had from Truro to Falmouth along the stunning Fal estuary with many options to disembark and pick up the boat later along the scenic river trip.
Note: Babies welcome, regretfully no children over the age of two years.
