Nestled near part of the rugged North Cornish coast, Medlar Cottage is a marvellous place to spend a trip away with family or friends, no matter what the time of the year.

Surrounded by acres of land on the owner’s private property, this property offers beautiful scenery both on your doorstep and further afield in the landscapes of Cornwall.

Head to the lounge after dinner to one of two relaxing areas, a snug compromising an array of seating where you can escape from technology and enjoy each other’s company, or a large sitting area where you can indulge in all your favourite cheesy films before heading up to bed.

There are three bedrooms in the cottage, including a twin for the kids to get a restful night’s sleep, and two doubles for the adults to do the same.

Wake up to the sound of birdsong and head outside with a hot cup of coffee to take in the breath-taking scenery on the land surrounding you, whether you manage to spot a frog leaping from the pond or a rabbit amongst the foliage, it’s a great place for kids and nature lovers alike to spot some lovely animals; the perfect way to start the day before a long walk in the Cornish countryside.

About the location


Truro 14 miles; St Ives 15 miles.

With its sheltered harbour, beautiful Portreath was, in the 1800s, a hive of activity and industry as a major tin-exporting port. Today, the village 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 restaurant, 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 14 miles away, or travel a few miles along the coast and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.
