With delightful views over the surrounding countryside, Lamorna Cottage is a perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy the best of South Cornwall, including numerous great beaches nearby. Part of an attractive stone barn on Tucoyse Farm (no longer a working farm) which dates back to the Doomsday Book. Period character features include stone elevations, wooden framed windows, broad slate sills and exposed beams. A comfortable lounge now with a log-burning stove and Smart TV, spacious dining room, newly fitted kitchen with washing machine and dish-washer. And upstairs the bathroom and two bedrooms (double and twin) with new beds. Plus free WiFi throughout. In addition to our own large lawned garden there is a further gated lawn at the front, and French doors at the back opening onto a gravelled courtyard area with table and benches, perfect for an al fresco breakfast. There's also a stone plinth designed for disposable barbecues. We're just two minutes from Polmassick Vineyard; 1 mile from The Crown at St Ewe, a great traditional pub with good food; and 3 miles to the lovely beach at Caerhays Castle. The very popular Lost Gardens of Heligan are only 3 miles up the road, Mevagissey is 4 miles away as are at least 5 more decent beaches, each with its own character. The Eden Project is a short drive away. Waitrose has just opened up on the way into Truro, a cathedral city which has plenty of other decent shops. Tesco and Asda are also within reach. (One guest also arranged delivery from Sainsbury's). The coastal walking along the Roseland Heritage Coast between Mevagissey and St Mawes is one of the most spectacular stretches in the country, including hidden beaches and coves, tiny fishing villages and majestic sea cliffs (now designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

About Simon Strutt
We bought Lamorna in 2016, and look forward to spending large parts of the year in this lovely spot. We live near Oxford, but have spent many family holidays in and around Cornwall. Walking the South West Coastal Path over the past few years, this stretch from Charlestown to St Mawes along the Roseland Coast stood out for its lovely beaches, spectacular cliffs and great villages. And the unspoilt rural lanes just inland make this the perfect location. We're planning to explore further over the next few years.

Why Simon Strutt chose Saint Ewe
We love being close to so much interesting coastline, combined with a peaceful rural base.

Lovely cottage in the heart of the countryside
This was our second holiday at Lamorna cottage and we enjoyed it just as much as before.
It is a well equipped and comfortable cottage.
Close to the South Cornwall coastal path and great beaches.
Such a peaceful location.
Lamorna cottage Christmas Holiday 2017
Beautiful cottage, very rural with great views. Although and old building the internal fixtures and fittings were right up to date including WiFi.
For Londoners the narrow and twisty roads were a little scary, especially in the pitch dark and driving rain, and the days are very short at Christmas. However we soon got the hang of it. Thoroughly recommended if you enjoy a very rural location. We certainly do.
Lamorna Cottage was ideally situated for visiting some great spots on the coast as well as Heligan and Eden.
It was very clean, cosy and well equipped
Nice rural location
The property was well equipped and very rural. It was a challenge navigating the narrow roads. Although we liked the cottage we did not realise it was one of several attached cottages as we would have preferred an individual one.
A lovely cottage in the middle of the Cornish countryside.
Lamorna Cottage was really well equipped and cozy. We were close to the South Cornish Coastal path. Lots of walking and the beaches are amazing.
Comfortable and well equipped cottage well situated for exploring Cornwall.
Fantastic place. Well equipped clean cottage in beautiful surrounds. Great location.
Lamorna Cottage is in a peaceful rural location, a perfect place to relax and unwind. There are half a dozen beaches within 4 miles, and the Roseland Heritage Coast offering unspoilt scenery to explore, one of the loveliest stretches of the South West Coastal Path. The oldest vineyard in Cornwall is just a few hundred yards down the hill at Polmassick - great cream teas in the summer! We're just a few miles from the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Caerhays Castle and Gardens, Mevagissey, Charlestown and Veryan. A little further to St Mawes and Fowey. The Eden Project is only 10 miles away, and within just 15 miles the dramatic north Cornish coast - we love St Agnes and the brilliant Bedruthan Steps. Padstow/Rock is 20 miles, around 35 minutes drive. And not much further (in the other direction) to the beautiful Helford estuary, Tate St Ives, and - our favourite - Kynance Cove on the Lizard. Lamorna is a great base to explore Cornwall.
