The property

Dragonfly Cottage is nestled in the countryside between Cornwall’s north and south coasts, in the heart of the traditional Cornish village of St Stephen. Offering a wealth of original features and a history dating back to Victorian times, Dragonfly Cottage has been lovingly-restored to accommodate four guests and three well-behaved pets for a memorable, self-catered getaway.

Step into your new home-from-home to be instantly impressed by the fully-equipped kitchen, boasting all the necessary appliances required to rustle up delicious meals for the whole family, before settling down at the dining table to tuck in.

If you prefer to dine alfresco, head outside to the enclosed rear garden which offers a picturesque spot to relax with a good book and cup of tea.

When day rolls into night, retreat back inside to curl up in the sitting room, clicking on the TV to catch up on your favourite shows or watch a movie, before washing away the day in the sleek ground-floor bathroom.

On the first floor, two well-presented bedrooms await, comprising a super-king-size (zip/link) and a single with trundle bed, ideal for familial groups and with plenty of storage to house your personal belongings. In the morning, explore your closest amenities including a handy shop where you can stock up on the essentials and a pub, ideal for a lunchtime drink or some tasty food.

Its beautiful church was dedicated to Saint Stephen by the Bishop of Exeter in 1261 and was restored during the 1890s, so the village offers rich history for all to enjoy.

Here you can also take advantage of a social club, a co-operative and post office, Nisa mini-market, laundrette and a chemist housed in the unique setting of the old Methodist chapel!

For those looking to enjoy some sport, the sports pavilion also resides close by, in addition to a playground where your little ones can let off some steam! Spend the day in St Austell, home to the incredible Eden Project; here you can also take a stroll through the Lost Gardens of Heligan, explore the fishing village of Mevagissey and sample local food at the farmers’ market.

Why not take a drive to the popular resort of Newquay, known for its golden sandy beaches and captivating nightlife?

Or visit the cathedral city of Truro, home to a range of independent shops and restaurants, including the famous Hall for Cornwall theatre.

With plenty of picturesque countryside and many beaches also within driving distance, there is plenty to see and do here.

No matter how you choose to spend your stay, a holiday at Dragonfly Cottage is sure to be one to remember.

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