Cottage Close To Sea, Between Portreath And Godrevy

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Sleeps 6, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms (2ensuite), Open-plan Downstairs W/ Sun Room

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!

About Neill Fry

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 Fry purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Neill Fry chose Illogan

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Unique soft countryside, beside rugged and stunning Atlantic coast - the best beaches, peace and quiet.

Perfect cottage for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Pobbles cottage. The location of the cottage is excellent - nice and peaceful when you want to sit and relax in the garden, but so close to the coast as well as the A30 so it is really easy to get around. Being able to walk in just a few minutes to the Tehidy Country Park is a bonus too. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

Excellent. Relaxing holiday where you enjoy the wonderful countryside and costal area.

  • 5 of 5

Pobbles Cotage was delightful. Well equipped and maintained. The attention to detail is apparent with the owner considering all the needs of the client.

The area is outstanding with lovely walks around Tehidy Country Park and the local cliffs and coast. If you prefer you can soak up the sun in the garden and watch the golfers at Tehidy Golf club.

Great location for visiting different towns, peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

Great cottage which is located down a country road within the golf club carpark. Holiday cottage was lovely. Only downside which isn't the property's fault is the standard of cleanliness, overall clean but in all rooms when the blinds were fully opened it was thick with

Black dirt and there was dust build up on the stairs where it just hadn't been thourougly cleaned. Saying this we would stay again, just maybe change your cleaner! Also please make it obvious that towels are not included not even hand towels in the bathrooms are included. Thankfully we brought enough beach towels to see us through the week but otherwise we would of had to go and buy towels. I don't think this is clearly stated.

Lovely cosy cottage. Tehidy country park and golf club on doorstep are great assets to as sporty or relaxing break. Despite not being the greatest weather we had a wonderful time which attests to the property's all year round appeal. Owners have thought of everything to make your stay a home from home.

Spacious, quiet, near the North Cornwall coastal footpath.

  • 5 of 5

Set surrounded by Tehidy Golf course (Cottage is opposite GC entrance), Tehidy Country Park and farmland this family home is a gem. 3 en-suite bedrooms with top class fittings you will be delighted with this holiday home. We spent Christmas here and had a wonderful time, walking the woods along the North Coast Footpath and short trips to the wonderful sandy beaches of Portreath and Gwithian famed for its good surfing.

The wood burner made it really cosy this is backed up by a good oil fired CH. The property is well maintained and has adequate parking for two or three cars .Supermarkets are within easy reach and the main A30 is within a couple of miles making journey times very good.

If using satnav would advise using Goole Earth Grid references as the driveway to the golf club is indistinct and difficult to see if arriving in the dark. Use grid ref 50deg 14min 39.6 sec N and 5deg 17min 28.16sec and make sure you are turning into the correct lane off COT road not South Drive. It may be easier to ignore satnav for last few miles and go direct to Portreath, up the hill towards Illogan, take the LH fork at the top of the hill and Golf club is about a mile from Portreath on yr Right.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful Cottage with all the facilities you need, all in good working order. Owner was very good with communications. Lovely garden with nice walks on the door step. Godrevy café, which is dog friendly, at the entrance to the beach and the food is great only 5 min drive. Will definitely be returning here again. Thank You Neill for a lovely stay.
