About the property

Old Cottage Is A Delightful Self Catering Cottage That Sleeps 4 In Two Bedrooms

Old Cottage is a delightful self - catering cottage that sleeps four in two bedrooms, one spacious double and one cosy twin.

lazy days on the beach.

The property is the oldest in the village and dates back to 1890 with all the character that brings. Located in the heart of this friendly village peaceful village. There is a local village farm shop as well as the beach store for all your essentials.

Our second family visit to the Old Cottage- we were not disappointed and have already booked again to stay next year.

We love Trevone and have developed quite a soft spot for the Old Cottage - it's charming features and it's fabulous location.

Looking forward to returning and trying the natural rock swimming pool.

We loved the benefit of the nice linen being included this time too.

Many thanks Nicky for another great stay.

Lovely October beach stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our family- close enough to the beach that we could walk there, splash around and come back for a warm lunch! The bedrooms were cosy and comfortable as were the kitchen and living room, complete with every amenity we could need. Thank you!

Perfect couple's retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Old Cottage. We were very lucky with the weather, and had stunning walks along the coast and bodyboarded at Trevone Beach in glorious sunshine. Sipping a glass of wine as the sun went down in the garden was an added bonus. Free parking nearby was very straightforward. We didn't bring the children, as they were being looked after by their grandparents. A lovely treat for us all.

Characterful, comfortable and cosy cottage in good location.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is clean, comfortable and very cosy. Lots of character with low beams and would burner in the main living area. A small, pretty and well equipped kitchen. The out side space was simple but a lovely place to sit; washing line, nice furniture and a BBQ provided. The roses and hydrangeas; very pretty. The main bedroom was stylishly furnished in keeping with the cottage. The twin room was rather a squeeze for two adults, the beds small and bouncy, but overall comfortable. The downstairs bathroom was fine although felt a little chilly and damp at times and the basin tap 'sung' loudly when used. The cottage is in a good location, a few 100 metres from the beach and close to farmers' fields for a scenic walk near the sea. Parking was fine, we hardly used the car anyway. The neighbours were also very friendly. We had a lovely time in Trevone and would recommend the Old Cottage. Just be aware that if you are tall you may, in moments of absent mindedness, clunk your head on the beams or kitchen doorway. The information on the website advised us to take our own bedding and bath/hand towels whereas these were actually provided so that was one large bag I didn't need to pack - it may be worth checking that out before travel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend the Old Cottage as a comfortable place to stay. I'm sure , if the Old Cottage could talk it would have some interesting, historical stories to tell.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alison for your feedback and so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The beds in the small room are being changed in November following the feedback and we do provide bedding, we have amended the information pack. Think we did advise in the covering e mail but apologies for the extra bag you had to take. The cottage temperature can be regulated to suit as have storage heaters and the lovely woodburning stove. Your feedback is important to us and have happily addressed for the future. Thank you once again, Nicky

A sweet and cozy cottage with everything you need for a lovely holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at trevone. Walking to padstow along the rugged cliffs, swimming in the amazing rock swimming pool, and to and fro to the beach a hundred times a day (and night). The farm shop kept us fed and we didn't have to go to a supermarket once! Alcoholic ginger beer from a nearby brewery was a discovery and local wines even! Perfect- thank you!

Lovely weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Old Cottage, it was well equipped clean, warm and comfortable. Trevone beach is a short walk away and if you fancy a walk into Padstow there is a lovely walk you can follow.

We would definitely re-visit and recommend to friends looking for a short stay.

Thank you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nicky thank you we had a lovely stay. Your house is lovely -really homely with a lovely comfy lounge/kitchen with all the gadgets you have at home and your lovely garden to sit in; the roses are beautiful.

Really like the velux window in the roof as we had a warm week and it was good to get the extra air at night..

Also love the wood burner though of course we didn't use as it was too hot but it looks super.

We all enjoyed the beach/walks and the boys enjoyed kayaks on the beach.

Happy to consider coming back again and thank you for letting us stay in your home.

Old Cottage is a delightful self-catering cottage a mile and a half from Padstow, a three minute walk from the beach yet tucked away in the heart of the popular but peaceful seaside village of Trevone on Cornwall's north coast. In an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty this pretty 19th century cottage boasts a beamed lounge, natural stone walls, a bespoke kitchen, two bedrooms and an attractive westward facing garden.

The cottage is an ideal location for family holidays, walking breaks, surf beach holidays or to cycle along the Camel Trail.

Old Cottage sits close to the sandy beaches of Trevone Bay, Harlyn Bay, Treyarnon Bay, and Constantine popular for those who like to surf, lie in the sand and work on their tan or rock pool with the children.

During your stay you'll be close to Padstow the picturesque fishing harbour and home to Rick Stein,s Seafood Restaurant and a number of other eateries from friendly cafés to traditional fishermen pubs.

If golfing is your passion the Championship 18 hole golf course at Trevose is close by. Enjoy scenic cycle rides in the beauty of Cornwall with bike hire available locally at Padstow, or Wadebridge.

From Padstow you will be able to take the Ferry to Rock where you can try your hand at sailing or water-skiing .Why not book a sea -fishing trip from the quay ?

In summary Old Cottages secluded village location is the ideal base for the perfect beak away.
