About Philippa Eddison
We have lived in this wonderful long house full of character and charm for the past 14 years enjoying the peaceful calm of rural village life and having views of open countryside all around. We sometimes have neighbours when the cattle come to graze for a few weeks but generally the sounds are of birdsong with the odd tractor rumbling by. Being on the village road there is some light traffic coming by as well - mainly heading for the excellent local village pub. We have renovated the barns that were once used as a dairy and as a carthouse to create the 'Old Dairy' and we hope that our guests will be able to enjoy all that there is to offer locally or further afield whilst staying in our cosy and comfortable holiday cottage. Dogs are very welcome.
Why Philippa Eddison chose Saint Kew
The Old Dairy is very quaint with lop-sided walls, beamed ceilings and has loads of character but is also fitted with very modern facilities including a fully equipped kitchen, a large, open shower with dual heads, an extremely comfortable king-size bed, a private and a sunny courtyard perfect for relaxing, barbecuing and chilling out. We are surrounded by fields and have a small wood at the bottom of the garden where we have built a tree house. A great place for an evening drink whilst watching the sun go down and Guests are most welcome to use this.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Old Dairy is so old that parts of it date back to the 12th century. We are in a rural spot but the excellent 15th century St Kew Inn is just a 12 minute walk away, taking you across the ancient ford. The food is wonderful, there is a massive garden out front down by the running stream and dogs are most welcome. In the winter months there is a massive log fire, lively music on a friday night and always a warm welcome.

Beautiful barn and location
We had a lovely 3 night stay in this beautiful barn. The owners were great and very helpful providing information on the surrounding areas and best places to go.
Port Isaac and Port Gaverne beaches are a 12 minute drive away and these rocky coves have many places to eat and drink as well as swim and bathe. Polzeath and Daymer Bay are 15 minutes drive and are great for surfing and relaxing. Again they have many restaurants and cafes for refreshments during the day or dining in the evening.
Newquay airport is 20 minutes drive with flights to London and the north and Bodmin railway station is about 30 minutes away. Exeter is about an hour's drive and there is an airport there or you can catch faster services from Exeter train station.
St Kew is nestled in beautiful open countryside but is close to many beaches and is 5 minutes from the lovely market town of Wadebridge. Newquay is about 25 minutes away and the Eden Project is 35 minutes away. The A39 provides good access to the south-west from here.
St Kew has a late-night shop open at the petrol station at St Kew Highway. Wadebridge has many lovely shops and restaurants and there are loads of places to eat out at the beach, in quaint villages like Port Isaac and in numerous welcoming country pubs.
The area is great for cycling with many easy, flat trails and lots of more challenging hills and off-road courses. There are lots of local potters and artists running day courses and many food related cookery schools running courses of varying length including fish, bread-making, thai and japanese.
