One of the Tregothnan Estate's Wild Escapes, Bethel Cottage is one of those cottages you just dream about. In a beautiful creekside setting, surrounded by rolling countryside, this cottage has been recently refurbished to provide the perfect peaceful retreat for those looking for a complete escape. Watch the wildlife on the incoming tide from your bedroom window, wander along the creekside path through unique plum orchards or in the winter relax beside the cosy woodburning stoves. The quintessential escape, yet only 10 minutes' drive from Truro with its superb shops & restaurants.
Bethel Cottage is a traditional creekside Cornish cottage with a cosy character sitting room with wood burning stove, fitted kitchen/diner with wood burning stove and 2 bedrooms, both full of character. The main bedroom has wonderful views over the creek and there is an incredibly relaxing bathroom with a free standing slipper bath from which you can enjoy the views! The cottage is surrounded by farmland with only 2 other Wild Escape cottages nearby (about 150 yards).

A welcome pack is provided in the cottage for your arrival, but also available as an extra (£30) is a very special wicker hamper containing Tregothnan produce including Kea plum jam, selection of teas and Housekeeper's biscuits. Also available is a stunning private tour of the Tregothnan Gardens (£70 per person). This tour is very special as the gardens are rarely open to the general public. The tour lasts around 2 hours and concludes with a Tregothnan cream tea. It is a very special treat!
Kayak hire is provided for cottages in Coombe. You can pre-book your kayak (£162 per kayak per week, £65 per day for a 1 person kayak) at the same time as your booking. Exploring the River Fal by kayak is a simply magical experience whilst you are in Coombe. In addition, the Estate has a rowing boat available to hire (£186 per week, £65 per day, max 4 person) if you would prefer a slightly more sturdy vessel for your adventures! A mooring directly in front of the cottage is also available to hire (£25 per week) for boats up to 15ft. For larger boats up to 25ft, there are three floating moorings which can be hired on request and subject to availability. When taking to the water, guests are able to explore Coombe on the Cowlands Creek - a unique and special estuary off the River Fal.
