Welcoming house in the heart of West Cornwall, dog-friendly and near the beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

4 bed dorma house, 1 bathroom, dog friendly, use of swimming pool and grounds

A delightful dorma house nestling in the grounds of the historic 16th Century Kenegie Manor. Perfectly positioned for touring the whole of Cornwall with a wealth of popular beaches and attractions to suit all tastes within easy reach.

Property is dog friendly and sleeps four (one double bed and two singles) with one bathroom. There is an open plan living room and kitchen with a dining table. Kitchen is fitted out with everything you need to make yourselves at home, and the living room host two sofas, a TV and a DVD player.

The courtyard outside with table and chairs leading onto the grounds of the Manor is an ideal space to enjoy BBQ's and Cornwall's beautiful Summer evenings.

Relax in the extensive manor gardens or enjoy the facilities on offer which include a heated indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, and a licensed bar.

Penzance being just a short drive from Kenegie Manor, offers you an easily accessible holiday centre with great shopping and dining. Forget preconceptions of a sleepy port town at the end of the London to Cornwall railway line. Penzance has thriving Arts and restaurant scenes, is popular among sailing enthusiasts and, along with picturesque neighbouring Newlyn, makes a perfect base for exploring West Cornwall.

Only 6 miles away a visit to St Ives is a must. A warm welcoming Mediterranean atmosphere awaits for beach lovers and surfers. Each of St Ives beaches offer its own charm and appeal. Try the world-class blue flag Porthmeor beach with its surf school, sunbathing, water sports and spectacular sunsets. Or sample the delights of sheltered blue flag Porthminster beach, ideal for families with its half a mile of golden sands. If you prefer small sandy coves then try Porthgwidden beach, a local sun trap. By contrast, watch the local fisherman as they land freshly caught seafood at the Harbour beach.

Visit the Isles of Scilly with only six inhabited islands and numerous rocky islets lying 28 miles off Cornwall’s western tip, could the Scilly Isles be Britain’s best-kept holiday secret - and the highlight of your Cornish holiday? There are daily sailings from Penzance on the Scillonian III ferry. Its never been easier to reach Cornwall’s unspoilt island paradise.

Whatever you do in Cornwall, don’t miss St Michaels’s Mount. Just three miles from your Kenegie Manor base, this unmissable landmark is Cornwall’s counterpart to Normandy’s Mont Saint Michel. Owned by The National Trust, Saint Michael’s Mount is one of England's best-known and most dramatic coastal attractions. The harbourside village has been a home to a close community for centuries. As a busy port in the mid-nineteenth century, the population peaked at around three hundred. Today you will find a small community that looks forward to greeting you with a cheerful ‘Dydh da’ (‘Good day’) when you visit.

Whether you just want something different or you’re missing West End culture, why not visit Cornwall’s ‘theatre under the stars’ at The Minack Theatre, near the little village of Porthcurno with its gorgeous cove of white sand and aquamarine sea .

Another short drive south of Kenegie Manor, the appeal of Mousehole transcends the seasons: in summer, laze on its safe beach, wander its quaint lanes and courtyards, or dine in cosy harbourside hostelries. Come winter, marvel at the sea’s awesome power and delight at the famous 'Mousehole lights'. Based on old Mousehole legends, the Christmas lights will thrill the whole family - before you enjoy a warming drink and enormous crab sandwich beside The Ship Inn’s roaring fires.

About Jane Gillett

I was born in Bristol but come from a Cornish farming family, so Cornwall has always been very close to my heart. I currently work for a charity in Bristol that support young adults with learning disabilities.

Stuart and I bought this house when our daughter was only 3 years old (she's now 24) and we've since had many wonderful family holidays there. It's still a very treasured place for our family and we regularly travel down to enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer.


Jane Gillett purchased this cottage in 1999

Typical of a house on a holiday camp.

  • 3 of 5

The property manager met us and gave us a brief rundown of the facilities and left his number in case we needed it, but we didn't. Parking was available right outside the property and suitable for a small car. Otherwise there was overflow parking close by. The house was clean and tidy and once it warmed up, it was cozy enough. Everything we needed to use was there (bring your own towels for showers/swimming). The beds were uncomfortable, however. The freeview tv didn't always work on some of the free channels so mostly restricted to BBC and ITV. The dvd player worked, though, but suggest bringing your own preferences, as we did. We went swimming a few times in the pool which was always warm and quiet. No more than two other families in with us at any time but that was enough. I would imagine at a busier time of year, it could be quite congested and the changing rooms are only small.The biggest problem was drying towels and swimming costumes as the poor weather meant we could not put them outside and had to leave heating on to dry them out. We didn't use the bar facilities. It is a small site and the grounds were always quiet and peaceful. It is so close to Penzance and all that has to offer (3 supermarkets close to each other on the outskirts along with the usual out-of-town retailers - 2 miles). It is easy to access the local area from here, but beware of the narrow lanes!
