About Pete and Jenny Cannard

I found this property which needed some TLC and knew it was what we were looking for.

Pete and Jenny Cannard purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Pete and Jenny Cannard chose Cornwall

Carrick Lodge is a warm and cosy home which is ideal for a holiday to get away from hectic city life. It is set in the countryside, on the Trewince Manor estate and we enjoy walking to the beach and along the coastal paths. We also like to visit The Plume of Feathers in Portscatho for a meal and a few drinks. We can either chill or explore both beaches and countryside.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the quietness of Carrick Lodge where we can look out to sea from our balcony to find boats and ships. As a guest of our Lodge you have complimentary access to the leisure club facilities which includes a 13 metre heated indoor swimming pool, spa pool and sauna. You can relax afterwards in the cafe with a choice of both hot & cold drinks, a cream tea, or something a little stronger from the bar. We often walk along the track away from the Manor House through the wooded area to the gate where we watch the sunset over St Mawes. Ralph's, the local shop in Portscatho, is always open and we love their cornish pasties. There is plenty to see and do in this area of outstanding beauty. Cornwall is a relaxing place to visit.
