The property

May Cottage is situated in Pentewan, a pretty hamlet positioned on a stunning stretch of the South Cornish coast. A 5 minute walk takes you to Pentewan's 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 road-free 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, pub and well-reputed bar/restaurant. The picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey, which still boasts a working harbour and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are within 5 miles (both linked to Pentewan via a cycle path) and the world famous Eden Project is less than 20 minutes by car.

Nestled in a sheltered valley along a quiet row of traditional cottages and away from the main thoroughfare, the cottage is truly a cosy haven by the sea and an excellent choice for breaks at anytime of year. Comfortably furnished to a good standard throughout, the mix of traditional and contemporary adds character combined with comfort. Entered via a stable door, the sitting room boasts plump leather seating and a wood burning stove and there is a substantial selection of books, DVD's, games and videos. Upstairs are three prettily furnished bedrooms, a single and two double rooms, offering flexible sleeping arrangements for four occupants. Separated from the cottage by a quiet lane are two decking areas equipped with garden furniture and a large garden with enchanting views across the valley. There is ample parking for two cars.

About the location

PENTEWAN

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.

Note: Maximum occupancy four adults.
