Sun up, show time. Dig out your fishing, biking or surfing kit and explore the coast and countryside on your doorstep. Overlooking open fields in the village of St Merryn, this stone built, 14th century cottage captures traditional Cornish charm and puts you right in the heart of country life.
If it’s a slice of rural relaxation you’re after, Mayview Cottage serves it up in spades. With pink roses climbing over the doorway, original beams, exposed stone walls, and country-style furnishings, holidaying here conjures us classic Cornwall in an instant.
Wander into the village and pick up some delicacies for breakfast, hit the open road and explore the seven bays, sizzle sausages on the patio as the scent of lavender drifts through the air. Or nip across the road to Rick Stein’s Cornish Arms for a true taste of the county. All that’s left is a nightcap by the fire and talk of tomorrow.Accessibility
