    “An absolutely delightful family stay at this lovely house.”

    Superbly well equipped and wonderfully thoughtful touches. Perfectly situated for local beaches, villages and towns. Everyone in the family (from 4 years old to 74 years old) had a splendid holiday. Very definitely on the ‘return to’ list.

The property

Set within the centre of the former mining village of Polgooth is this spacious holiday accommodation, Orchard View.

This large and striking dwelling has been designed to offer a base for families to come together to explore the coast and countryside of Cornwall, brimming with plenty of things to see and do.

Enter the property and make your way to the heart of the home, the open-plan living room, which is situated on the first floor, taking advantage of the picturesque views of the surroundings.

In here, the kitchen enjoys contemporary units and all the mod cons required to cater your own meals, including a sleek breakfast bar so that you can pop open a bottle of something to enjoy, whilst dinner simmers on the hob.

Delight in your home-cooked meal at the formal dining table before sinking into the leather sofas, which are perfectly positioned for enjoying the views across the pristine gardens and beyond.

Alternatively, head to the ground-floor sitting room, where you can flick on the TV and safely store your bike, if you are looking to explore the area on two-wheels.

Completing the ground floor are two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a king-size bedroom and a single bedroom, whilst upstairs, there is a king-size bedroom with an en-suite and a double bedroom.

Outside, you and your loved ones enjoy lunch on the lawn or a spot of alfresco dining on the raised patio, offering picturesque views of the surrounding countryside.

There are cycling trails from the property to the Eden Project, Mevagissey and the Pentewan Valley Trail.

Take a stroll through the village and stop off for a drink at Polgooth Inn, a classic Cornish pub, serving delicious meals and stunning views from the beer garden, or head to the shop to pick up the essentials.

Guests of Orchard View will be delighted by the scenic drive to Porthpean Beach, with good snorkelling and rock polling opportunities, or walk the famous South West Coast Path to discover several beaches, hidden coves and quaint fishing ports.

Attractions within the area include the iconic Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, or head further afield to the National Trust owned Dodman, for a scenic viewpoint.

Within close reach is Charlestown, where you will find the Tall Ships docked at the pristine Georgian working port, which you may have caught a glimpse of in the TV shows of Poldark, Hornblower and Mansfield Park.

Alternatively, find a larger selection of shops, pubs and restaurants within the town of St Austell or discover the Roseland Peninsula and spend some time within the villages of St. Mawes and St. Just-in-Roseland.

Orchard View is the perfect base for that well-deserved holiday with your loved ones.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Mevagissey 5 miles; St. Mawes 18 miles; Truro 14 miles.

With its history rooted firmly in tin mining, the village of Polgooth is now a quiet settlement on the outskirts of St Austell, frequented by visitors enjoying the area's outstanding countryside. Just 3 miles from the sea, the village is close to several lovely beaches, and the south-west coastal path also runs close by. The area has a host of visitor attractions, with the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Tall Ships Harbour at Charlestown all within a 15 minute drive. The quaint fishing harbour at Mevagissey, with its passenger ferry across the bay to Fowey, is just 5 miles away, and the beautiful Roseland Peninsula with the villages of St. Mawes and St. Just-in-Roseland lies just a little further. Enjoy a coastal walk and take in the wonderful views, spend a day on the beach, or visit one of the numerous attractions close by. A fantastic location, any time of the year.
