This attractive, detached traditional Cornish cottage is set in peaceful countryside with panoramic views across the Camel Estuary from all windows, with some exposed walls and flag stone hall, it makes an excellent holiday home. Family friendly kitchen/dining area leads onto the patio with built in barbecue, as do French doors from the sitting room, complete with a cosy woodburning stove. Outside extensive lawns overlook the estuary. Bring your bikes or walk along the Camel Trail to Wadebridge, a bird watchers paradise for migrant and estuary birds, or for fish and chips at Ric Stein’s in Padstow and a boat trip around the Puffin Island. This is a perfect location for visits to Tintagal, The Eden Project, tropical gardens and inland mining towns. Newquay is about 18 miles away. There are miles of sandy beaches popular with surfers and swimmers, and excellent golf courses north and south of the estuary. A supermarket and petrol station are only 1. 25 miles away. Shop 1. 25 miles, pub with food 0. 75 miles.
Absolutely loved our stay at Tregunna. If you enjoy peace & tranquility, beautiful views, stunning sunsets, the sound of seabirds...then this cottage is for you. I gave a lower mark for comfort & equipment as although this cottage is very cosy & comfortable, if you’re expecting WiFi, gadgets & gizmos you won’t find them here. Which was perfect for us but may be disappointing for others. Will definitely be booking again.
Our stay June, 2019
Despite the weather not co-operating, we did enjoy our stay at Tregunna for two weeks. However, the rain meant the lack of a tumble drier was keenly felt. For those with dogs, the garden isn't completely enclosed, as the front gate is easy to get through. Suggestion for improvement would be to have a better DVD player, as we struggled to work the one available. On the up side, we loved going into Wadebridge and hiring bicycles for an easy cycle to Padstow, as well as going for walks from the cottage (it's right on the Camel trail), and exploring the estuary. The large garden was incredible, although as a keen gardener I would've done so much more with it!
