    “We had a fantastic week here and would love to return in the future.”

    Everything you could think of was available and the hosts were very welcoming. It was in a perfect central location to visit everywhere from Lands End to the Eden Project. Would definitely recommend.

Guests are instantly welcomed by the inviting woodburning stove in the tastefully furnished living space.

Leading on to a contemporary fitted kitchen with all the amenities necessary for a memorable self-catered stay.

At the other end of the property, the ground floor en-suite bedroom has two single beds with zip/link, so can be combined on request to form a super king size bed.

The first floor hosts a romantic master bedroom with patio doors to a private balcony and a bathroom with an impressive free-standing bath.

The covered balcony with bistro table and chairs provides the perfect hideaway for a sundowner and from which to enjoy the scenic countryside views surrounding Poppyfields Stable.

If you prefer a night away from the kitchen take a walk along country lanes (torch provided is advisable) to Vogue where you will find The Star Inn which boasts good food.

Poppyfield Stables & The Old Well House

The cottages are a fabulous duo of cottages resting on the Scorrier House historic estate, just outside of St Day in Cornwall. With private south facing balconies, off-road parking, and within easy reach of local amenities and sweeping coastlines, these rural retreats are an ideal escape for a holiday in one of Cornwall's most idyllic spots. Central and conveniently located, minutes drive from the north coast and Porthtowan surfing beach, with two bars and shops, and 20 minutes drive to Falmouth on the south coast and gateway to west Cornwall. This traditional setting offers guests peace and tranquility, close to the Bissoe and Portreath cycle trail. The area will please walkers, cyclists, surfers and those looking for an alternative true Cornish location, the ideal spot for exploring. The owners who live in the neighbouring property can offer local advice for a memorable holiday experience. Within a short drive is the iconic 14th-century Carn Brea Castle, which has been made an UNESCO world heritage site. The restaurant inside the castle is a unique place to dine and the views are jaw-dropping: reaching for miles in clear weather. Also found close by, Tehidy has the largest area of woodland in Cornwall to explore, plus an 18-hole golf course. In nearby St Day is a traditional butcher, shops, pub/restaurant and post office and an excellent pub in the next village of Vogue, only 10 minutes walk via country lanes. A little further afield are the world class beaches, picturesque harbour, independent shops, local galleries, and foodie restaurants at St Ives. The vibrant maritime town of Falmouth, home to Henry’s VIII’s Pendennis Castle, The National Maritime Museum and one of the world’s deepest harbours is only 20 minutes by car and well worth a visit. Hop on a passenger ferry to the exclusive waterfront town of St Mawes, the National Trust’s Trelissick Gardens, the cathedral city of Truro and the famous Helford Passage and Frenchman’s Creek. Make memories to last a lifetime at Poppyfield Stables and The Old Well House. These properties can be booked together sleeping six guests.

About the location


Porthtowan 5 miles; Portreath 6 miles; Truro 7 miles; St Ives 20 miles; Falmouth 10 miles.

St Day was originally named after the little known Saint Day or Dye (better known in Brittany). The village now has a pub and convenience store, as well as a granite, gothic-style church dating back to 1828. Six miles away is the popular village of Portreath which attracts visitors from around the world with its wild and rugged coastline. High cliffs, secluded coves and sandy, surf-washed beaches typify the area while all around are reminders of the area's rich industrial heritage. Portreath offers a small fishing harbour, shops, a number of pubs, three cafés and a Chinese takeaway, while its safe, sheltered sandy beach is a popular attraction. For a great day out, visit the cathedral city of Truro with its cobbled streets, shopping centre, theatre, museum and great restaurants, just 7 miles away, or travel a few miles along the coast to Gwithian and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.

NOTE: Please give at least 7 days’ notice prior to your stay when requesting the zip/ link bed to be made as a Super-king-size.
