Old Orchard Cottage is a quaint semi-detached cottage situated just over a mile from the Eden Project by car, or you can walk through the pretty country lanes via the clay trails taking approximately 30 minutes. Located next door to the owner’s home, this delightful property has been decorated and furnished to a very good standard. All on one level, it has the added benefit of private parking. The private, enclosed courtyard is perfect to enjoy the summer sun. Old Orchard Cottage offers a good-sized kitchen and spacious living/dining room with French doors leading onto the courtyard and a comfortable double bedroom with en-suite facilities.
Local attractions include the Eden Project, co-founded by Sir Tim Smit. This incredible project is home to biomes with plant life from all over the world. The Eden Project is also host to several artists and performers throughout the year. Visit Truro, the capital of Cornwall, with its Gothic cathedral, surrounded by narrow streets and alleyways lined with a selection of shops, cafés, restaurants and bars. St Austell Bay, just minutes away, has a stunning coastline which has pretty coastal towns and villages dotted along its edge. Charlestown is home to a collection of tall sailing ships, a historic harbour and Georgian architecture, all of which have been used as film and TV sets over many years. Beach 3½ miles. Shop 1¾ miles, pub 2 miles, restaurant ½ mile.
Best cottage we have ever stayed in, very clean and comfortable the owners were very helpful and gave us a very nice welcome pack on arrival
Lovely property, ideal base for visiting the attractions of Cornwall. Would book again if visiting this area.
Absolutely loved this cottage, so clean and well equipped. The owners were so welcoming and helpful, plus we had a lovely and thoughtful welcome pack. Great location within walking distance of Eden and lots of great places to visit all within and hour. We ran out of time! Also spent a day in the cottage as the weather was so bad, but we were so comfortable there it was a pleasure. A real home from home.
I would highly recommend this cottage and would love to return. It’s in a great location to travel around Cornwall and there are lots of places to visit locally. Just a few minutes from the Eden Project. I can not find fault with this beautiful cottage it was so well equipped and the owners were very kind and helpful.
This is a recently refitted property to a very good standard, and well equipped. The owners who live next door are very friendly and helpful. Handily placed to visit many of Cornwall's attractions with The Eden Project just down the road. We stayed a week in early July and were blessed with lovely weather and I have no hesitation in recommending this property for a couple who want a conveniently placed holiday rental with a good standard of accommodation.
We had a lovely week staying at Orchard Cottage. It was easy to get to the main sights in the area. The owners were very helpful and friendly.Loved the welcome pack. Great holiday accomodation.
Our stay November, 2019
This was a lovely cottage with all that we needed for a great holiday; the owners were very helpful giving us a superb welcome pack that included flowers and a welcome card. The location was very quiet, a 5 minute drive to the Eden Project, 10 minutes from St. Austell. We would highly recommend it for a great base for a holiday.
