Pobbles cottage was completely renovated by an expert team of builders, carpenter, electricians, decorators and plumber, finished early in the summer of 2014.
Although fully updated with tall the latest technology and conveniences our cottage is at heart an old, historic cottage with thick granite walls, originally used by the Nurserymen who tended the gardens at the Great Bassett estate, now Tehidy Country Park which surrounds the cottage.
With painstaking renovations now completed Pobbles Cottage now has 3 brand new contemporary bathrooms (2 en-suite with the double bedrooms - single or double beds) a new third bedroom known as the Bunk room, equipped with TV and play station & Wii (for kids of all ages), along with a new hand-fitted joinery made kitchen, with hard wood work-tops, fitting into the open plan living room and separate sun/dining room. The house, inside is essentially brand new - retaining the cottage charm, but with new rooms, decorated top to bottom with new furniture throughout.
We bought our cottage (as we have family nearby) and know what a hidden gem the Tehidy area is, combining breath-taking countryside, but being only a mile from the stunning coastline and Atlantic Ocean. We are an active outdoors family with passions for surfing, cycling, mountain biking and golf (we are adjacent to Cornwall’s famous Tehidy Park Golf Club). The sea is only around a mile away (Bassett Cove) and Pobbles is surrounded by world class beaches/surf spots of Portreath/Godrevy/Gwithian. Porthtowan, Chapel Porth, St Agnes and Perranporth are also a short drive away. There are also many miles of trails, footpaths, cycle paths and lanes - within Tehidy Country Park, the SW coastal path and beyond – all beginning at our Cottage gates.
It is also a beautiful, quiet and tranquil retreat, surrounded by breath-taking countryside.
With a large totally enclosed cottage garden, (2 lawns and a large shed for storing bikes and boards) it is ideal for both couples and families of all ages.
Based in the countryside at the end of a long tree lined private drive, our cottage has great access to the rest of Cornwall and is 10-15 minute drive from St Agnes and 20 minutes from Truro and St. Ives – Cornwall’s 3 finest towns.
This is our only cottage and we have done our best to create a stylish and comfortable home, with a touch of luxury, although we really bought it because of its special location.
The cottage has a brand new central heating system, along with wood burner, 3 newly installed modern bathrooms (2 showers, 1 bath), new painted hand-made wood shaker style kitchen, integrated dishwasher, integrated fridge, freezer, Nespresso machine, washing machine, new boutique-style decorations and furniture (sofas, armchairs and new dining suite for 6), large outside deck with teak table and chairs, BBQ, painted floor boards with quarry tiles throughout.
Pobbles Cottage has plenty of parking with private parking for 2 cars next to the garden and 3+ cars on the gravel drive leading to the house.
Thank you for looking and reading this far!
We are a family of four living in Bristol and bought Pobbles to be closer to our Cornwall based family and enjoy the fantastic beaches, wildlife and countryside this area offers. We love relaxing, surfing and being on the beach (Godrevy is world class in all respects), cycling and golf.
Neill or Sally Fry purchased this cottage in 2013
Pobbles is a great place to get away from it all. It is located in a wonderful hidden gem called Tehidy, the old estate park for what was at one time the 4th richest family in this country and now Tehidy Country Park and surrounding land. It is an attractive cottage, fitted out to a high specification, within a large cottage garden. Whilst we have our favorite beaches close by (Godrevy, Gwithian, Bassetts Cove, Chapel Porth, Portreath, Porthtowan, Trevaunce Cove) there are many places to visit nearby.
Unique soft countryside, beside rugged and stunning Atlantic coast - the best beaches, peace and quiet.
Everything is great with the house, thanks Neill. We are having a fantastic holiday and your house is lovely!
We stayed at 'Pobbles' for the 4th time at the end of May, that probably summarises what we think of the cottage. It is ideally located for the north coast, whilst you can reach the south coast in 30/40 mins.
The cottage is not the largest but it does everything really well, with three bedrooms and bathrooms, ideal for a family of four like us, everyone has a bathroom! The kitchen has all you can ask for and their is plenty of seating available, including a dining table.
It's really nice to have a garden, where you can enjoy the sun (if out), with a BBQ on hand, along with a decked area, with table for al fresco dining. The shed proves really useful for us, we take all four bikes, so they stay safe and secure, along with the cycle carrier.
The location on the golf course is quiet, apart from the 'ting' of players teeing off and easy to get to Tehidy park, whether it be walking or cycling. Sometimes it's nice to stay local and not be driving all over the place!
We made good use of Portreath this time for the first time, as it's literally 5 mins away and easy for boarding/surfing etc. Godrevy is an excellent beach, with a little walking involved - we the NT cafe for breakfast sometimes, you can't go wrong.
We all look forward to going to 'Pobbles' and some may think we're sad for going to the same place over and over again but, it's well presented, tidy, quiet, well located and the owners do all they can make it enjoyable. Neill and Sally, although not on site, make everything really easy, nothing is a hassle.
We'll be going back again May 2017!
We loved the very well appointed "Pobbles Cottage". It was obviously renewed and refurbished to a very high standard a few years ago and is maintained in a similar manor. It is situated in the middle of the Tehidy Golf course on the other side of the car park from the club house. It was very convenient and easy to find following the signs to the Golf course. The bar and restaurant serve a lovely menu of delicious food and were very welcoming. Obviously super handy with NO driving. The Golf club did get busy at times but did not interfere with us in any way.
We enjoyed visiting most of Cornwall's attractions Eden Project, Land's End, etc although Tintagel proved a bit of along trek. There are also some nice walks from the cottage and longer ones along the "SW Coast Path".
There are lots of nice pubs nearby and in Portreath, Camborne was convenient for supermarkets and restaurants.
We especially enjoyed taking the "Park and Ride" into St Ives which turned-out to be by train rather than the usual bus. St Ives Tate is closed until 2017 but the Barbara Hepworth Museum is still open and well worth a visit.
We spent a wonderful week as family in this beautiful cottage. Everything was as expected from the booking, no surprises, rather exceeding expectations. The house is well renovated, stricking the right balance between modern comfort and legacy atmosphere. We really felt at home. The location is quite and we could explore Cornwall from there within reasonable distances in all directions. The only thing we struggled with was to find a pub in the surrounding communities that we would have liked equally to the cottage. Overall, a very enjoyable stay! Fantastic cottage!
The Cottage was a delight to stay in - comfortable, clean, presentable and spacious with all the amenities you need. The Cottage is in an ideal location - quiet, beautiful surroundings with some good sandy beaches and fine walks nearby. My two boys loved the bunk bed and the games consoles. Thoroughly enjoyed our break thank you very much.

Tehidy has unique 'soft' countryside, beside the rugged, stunning Atlantic coast - the best beaches, peace and quiet.
