About the property

Cottage in Probus, Nr. Truro, Cornwall, England - Central Location in Cornwall, 5 Miles from Truro

The Court is a pretty Cornish cottage renovated to offer guest accommodation for up to five. There are three bedrooms, a double, a twin and a small single and a family bathroom. The quiet village of Probus lies just 6 miles east of the county town of Truro, which boasts Cornwall's only cathedral; great shopping from a range of independent shops; twice weekly farmers' markets; a variety of restaurants; a cinema and great theatre at 'The Hall for Cornwall'. The famous gardens of the Trewithen estate are located just on the edge of the village, with the romantic 'Lost Gardens of Heligan' approximately 25mins away and The Eden Project only ten minutes further.

About Christopher Blurton

I live in Probus with my partner about half a mile from 2 The Court where I run a little B&B called Spring Cottage.

We bought 2 The Court in 2007 and after an extensive refurbishment have been letting it to holiday makers ever since!

Christopher Blurton purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Christopher Blurton chose Probus

We wanted an addition to our B&B business and a self catering cottage just half a mile from our home fitted the bill.

We chose to live in Probus for it's central location in Cornwall - with an easy drive to all that the county has to offer and we knew that guests would appreciate this convenience too!

What makes this cottage unique

Guest love the cosy Rayburn in the kitchen and wood- burner in the living room. It's a character cottage but with mod cons too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Home from home"

We stayed here for 2 weeks whilst waiting to move into our own house which was still being built. 2, The Court really was 'home from home' for our family. It had everything we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Many thanks.

"Beautiful well maintained cottage."

A fantastic time was had by all during our stay at this cottage. The standard of cleanliness was amazing, and everything we needed was there. The cream tea that was provided for us upon arrival was most welcome after a 7 hour journey in traffic with 2boys! I would recommend this property to anyone, look forward to returning soon.

"Home from Home"

The accommodation is impeccably comfortable, clean and tidy. A private location, which for us, who prefer to avoid tourist areas yet like to have beaches, attractions and amenities within easy reach by car, is ideal.

We had a great stay in Cornwall particularly enjoying visits to Eden Project, St Michael's Mount and some walks along the coast including old mine workings.

Probus is on a good bus route to Truro and there is a bus stop close to the cottage. It is possible to see Cornwall by public transport, however, to get the most out of your holiday we would advise either bringing your own car or hiring one in Truro if coming by train, or at Newquay airport if you're flying here.
