Nestled snugly in the heart of the coastal village of Pentewan amidst local life is The Mallards, a traditional double fronted detached cottage with wonderful views over the charismatic old stone harbour, a visual reminder of Pentewan's prosperous industrial heritage. Within a 3 minute walk is Pentewan beach, an adventure playground among bathers and water sports enthusiasts and a firm favourite among locals since it is so large it rarely gets crowded. For walkers and cyclists, there is the Pentewan Valley Trail, a 4km inland path through beautiful woodland, and the scenic coastal footpath which stretches in either direction over rugged cliff tops, and hidden coves. Unspoilt and uncommercialised, the village itself provides a convenience store, the Pisky café, excellent foodie pub The Ship Inn and well reputed bar/restaurant.
There is a West facing private enclosed patio equipped with garden furniture and patio heater in front of the cottage and once over the threshold you will discover a simplistic charm where lime washed wood floors, solid oak and antique furnishings, a rustic wood burner and pot belly stove combine to create an informal and relaxed ambience. There is an attractive kitchen fitted with striking Cornish blue units and a full range of modern appliances and a utility area, offering space for wet suits and bicycles. Upstairs is a luxurious hand crafted bathroom with a roll-top bath and separate shower and two elegant bedrooms, a twin and a double with an antique style bed stead and beautiful crisp cotton bed linens.
Popular among couples and families, The Mallards has the makings for a memorable holiday. Numerous day trip destinations lie close by with The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Mevagissey and the Eden Project within a 20 minute drive. There is off-road parking for one car.

About the location
St Austell 4 miles; Mevagissey 2 miles.
Pentewan is a delightful coastal village set back from the sandy expanse of Pentewan Beach. The village shop and pub draw visitors from far and wide, while the beach is good for children. The coastal path passes through the village and as it climbs up the cliffside towards Mevagissey, the views across the bay toward Devon in the far distance are breathtaking. Good cycle paths pass close by the village, there is a great river close by for fishing enthusiasts, the Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a short walk away, and the historic and scenic Charlestown harbour is also close by. The nearby fishing village of Mevagissey offers many restaurants and fresh harbour fish, while the Eden Project is within easy reach and well worth a visit.
