About the property

Pencreek Cottage - a holiday cottage that sleeps 2 guests in 1 bedroom

Nestled amongst the beautiful Kea plum orchards unique to this unspoilt part of Cornwall lies Pencreek; a magical bolt hole where you can indulge in casual luxury and serene water views. This really is a unique part of Cornwall, where wild orchards meet the waters edge. River views greet you from every room, and the comforting crackle and warmth from the wood burning stove make it a magical and intimate escape all year round. The double bedroom is luxuriously fitted out and boasts a modern open plan bathroom complete with romantic roll-top bath. Enjoy peaceful river views from the bath whilst still in complete privacy! The light and airy open plan living / dining room make the most of the beautiful views and offer every convenience as you would expect. The modern kitchen is fully equipped for self catering.


Ground Floor: Open plan living / dining area & kitchen.

First Floor: Double bedroom with Hypnos zip and link beds which can be made up as a 6' bed or as 3' single beds, TV, open plan bathroom & roll-top bath, separate shower. PLEASE NOTE THE CHROME FURNITURE HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH WOODEN FURNITURE. PHOTOS TO FOLLOW SHORTLY.

Exterior: There is a patio with external furniture and BBQ.

Facilities & Services

Heating is via central heating and the cosy wood burning stove. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a range of equipment including an electric oven & hob, kettle, toaster, fridge with small compartment freezer, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher & espresso machine. The lounge has a flat screen digital TV & DVD player. There is a music system with CD, Radio and iPod docking station. WiFi available at the property. There is a telephone for local and incoming calls. There is a hairdryer, iron & ironing board.


Electricity, heating, a basket of logs, bed linen & towels are all included but you will need to provide your own beach towels. There is enough parking space for 2 vehicles. Please note that access to the property is through a farm yard and along a levelled, but unmade farm track. Up to 2 dogs are allowed at an additional cost of £50 per dog / per week although please remember that you cannot leave dogs unattended in the cottage alone. A basket of logs are provided for the wood burner, thereafter available from the owner. Regrettably no smoking is allowed. There is a cot and high chair.


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. For an additional £20 you can be picked up & returned by river launch (tidal dependent and subject to availability) from outside your cottage. 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.

A lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Pencreek. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We were very impressed with the location which offered us total privacy and the views over the water were outstanding. A very enjoyable stay was had by all.

Winter haven

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved coming back to this amazing cottage and location. Everything is provided and the cottage proved to be a brilliant bolt hole when the snow came. Thank you to Lucy who made sure that we were Ok! We still did lots of walking around the local area. We loved watching the tides and bird life on the creek as well as the birds coming to feed from the garden. The snow showed the tracks of rabbits and deer; unfortunately we missed these visitors. The cottage is so comfortable and we had a very relaxing time - a real opportunity to relax. We look forward to another return visit.

Perfect cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cottage in a perfect location. Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Well equipped and organised ,with everything you could need. We took our own canoe, so it had the added bonus for us of providing a launching area just from the door- almost! There is also lots to do in the area. We note from the visitors book that many return, and we can see why. We'd love another holiday here.

Pencreek Apr 17

  • 5 of 5

The view is what hits you when you first arrive, the cottage is lovely and has everything you need. The peacefulness is relaxing with lots going on with the wildlife above and on the water. You are ideally situated to travel to most of the tourist attractions in Cornwall with the busy beaches in the north or the more secluded in the south. One of the best holidays we have had.

The city of Truro is only about a 10 minute drive away and has a wide selection of good shopping including a Tescos, Sainsburys, Marks & Spencer and many other high street outlets. There is also a cinema and a great selection of restaurants, pubs & cafes. The resort of Newquay is about 16 miles to the north with its spectacular surf beaches at Fistral & Watergate Bay. Jamie Oliver's "Fifteen" restaurant is located here. Padstow, with its fine selection of restaurants influenced by Rick Stein is just over 20 miles. The yachting centres of Mylor, Falmouth & St Mawes are all within easy reach of the cottage. There is a watersports centre at nearby Loe Beach where you can learn to sail or windsurf. The nearby Roseland Area of Outstanding Beauty with its superb coastal walks is also a short drive away via the King Harry Ferry.

The Cathedral City of Truro is in the heart of Cornwall and offers a wealth of facilities for the visitor. Dominated by the stunning cathedral, it is one of the south west's most attractive cities. Lemon Quay plays host to many events throughout the year including the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival in the Autumn and the famous Truro Fatstock Show just before Christmas. Regular farmers markets occur every Wednesdays & Saturday and there are also arts & craft markets on Saturdays.

There is a wonderful range of shopping for the visitor including all the regular high street stores including Marks & Spencer, Tescos & Sainsburys, but also a wide range of more specialist stores. It really is worth a wander through the back streets and alleys to find some fabulous little boutiques.

Truro has a superb range of restaurants from Bustopher Jones & Mannings on Lemon Street to the always popular Pizza Express. There are lively bars, pubs & nightclubs including the superb Old Ale House, a busy Wetherspoons and the infamous L2 if you are so inclined! The Hall for Cornwall hosts everything from Shakespeare to rock concerts and the cinema on Lemon Street has all the latest releases.
