    “What an amazing holiday home.”

    Lots of rooms for play and relaxation. Loads of toys and books for children ... and adults! The brio train set is second to none! We couldn’t believe how much there was and what an interesting collection …. I’ve never seen a train wash before! The large doll was a huge hit with my granddaughter ….. especially when we found all the different clothes for her! We loved the conservatory and spent most of our time there (when we were in!), especially in the evenings. We made good use ...

    Lots of rooms for play and relaxation. Loads of toys and books for children ... and adults! The brio train set is second to none! We couldn’t believe how much there was and what an interesting collection …. I’ve never seen a train wash before! The large doll was a huge hit with my granddaughter ….. especially when we found all the different clothes for her! We loved the conservatory and spent most of our time there (when we were in!), especially in the evenings. We made good use of the local facilities – the shop, Thai restaurant, pub (both with incredible food) and the little lane, which went down a wooded hillside, under the railway bridge and to the river, which had a rope swing over it – that was great fun! The surrounding area of amazing picturesque fishing villages and rugged beaches were very special. We had such wonderful days out and each day was completely different! The Heritage gas range cooker was our challenge, especially when cooking a roast as there is only one main oven space. However it kept the kitchen beautifully warm and great for drying clothes!! I felt quite sad to say goodbye to Burrow House and all the adventures we went on!

Should you require a supermarket you will find one a 12 min drive away in St Austell. From Par Beach, you can access to the remarkable South West Coast Path in both directions along the coast; head east towards the dramatic cliff walks by Gribbin Head peninsula and the pretty beach at Polkerris Cove as you make your way to Fowey. In Fowey you can explore the harbour, see the ruins of St Catherine's Castle, which was built by Henry VIII, take the children to the aquarium and browse the art galleries and shops, with top end fish restaurants and local crab sandwiches and ice cream.

From this beautiful harbour you can also take ferries to Mevagissy, and to Looe throughout the tourist season.

There are also options to hire kayaks or paddleboards, or to hop on a boat to cross the river towards Polruan and spend time wandering the winding paths towards charming coves like the National Trust's Lantic Bay.

This is all just an 8 min drive, or a walk along the coastal path. Head west along the coastal path towards the Roseland Heritage Coast and the harbours of Mevagissey and Charlestown.

Mevagissey is famous for it’s fishing fleet, and you can buy fish here straight from the boats.

About the location


Fowey 3.3 miles; St Austell 6.3 miles.

The pretty, historic Cornish village of Tywardreath, meaning ‘The House on the Strand’, lies in the heart of Daphne du Maurier country and features in her book of the same name. St Andrew’s, the village church, is said to have the best peal of bells in the area, while the village has a lively community, centred round its excellent pubs and range of shops. There are several safe, sandy beaches close to the village, with a variety of watersports and leisure activities available. Par, a small, china clay port with a dog friendly sandy beach is a fifteen minute walk from the village or 5 minutes in the car, home to a main line railway station. Polkerris Beach, a 30 minute walk or a 5 minute drive away, has a beachside restaurant, pub and watersports centre. The attractive waterside village of Fowey is just three miles away, from where there are some dramatic cliff walks to Gribbin Head, passing through much of du Maurier’s familiar landscape. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Tywardreath is a village that will appeal to families and those keen to explore the rich heritage and gorgeous coastline of South Cornwall.
