Brampton is not a super shiny show house! However, it is a welcoming and roomy 4 bedroomed family cottage where children (and dogs if you wish) can relax so that parents can too. There is plenty of room for two families to cook and eat in the large, fully equipped kitchen, maybe spreading onto the sunny deck outside. You can watch children play in the sunny garden while you sit at the kitchen table, or you can relax in the chairs that hang from the magnolia tree.
Brampton Cottage is centrally located so that you can explore every part of Cornwall. The Poldark series was filmed close by, as was the German versions of Rosamunde Pilcher novels.

We have lived in this happy family house for twenty two years, and both my girls have loved growing up here. They especially love the attic room which has been perfect for sleep-overs and the magnolia tree in the garden which has been a favourite play centre throughout their lives. It's been a climbing frame, a ship, a den, a horse, a rocket.... so many adventures in one tree. Now that they are older, they prefer to swing in the hanging chairs and chat.
Jane Fenton purchased this cottage in 1993
Brampton is ideal for families. Everyone can sit around the kitchen table for hours, just eating, drinking, talking and playing endless games or sit on the bright, sunny deck for those summery, outdoor meals.
Visitors always comment on the peace and quiet of the countryside around Brampton. There is a network of lanes and paths to explore around Brampton. We are close to the award winning, river-side Pandora Inn at Restronguet and the diverse range of cafes, restaurants and bars in Falmouth.
Dear Jane and Robin,
Thank you for a lovely week in your calm, peaceful home with a good ambiance. Much fun had by all of us.
P.S. love the settees! Colours everywhere are just fab. Also love the photos.
The property is in an ideal location for exploring Cornwall and sits in one of the nicest regions with have come across over the last 20 years of visiting Cornwall.
It is very peaceful and the house has a lovely relaxed homely feel to it.
The house is well equipped and has everything you need to enjoy your holiday.
Lots of information is provided on things to do in Cornwall.
9 of us stayed in the house ( 3 separate families) and found we had plenty of space, we all loved the kitchen area and the garden,these allowed us to spend some quality family time altogether.
Thank you Jane and Robin for allowing us to enjoy your home and making us feel so welcome there.
Lovly cottage for our 3 generational summer holiday
We stayed at Brampton with our family - we were 6 adults and 4 children and 2 dogs! There was heaps of room for us all, the children loved sharing the attic room! The house was spotlessly clean and we were very grateful to find a welcome pack of essentials on our arrival (tea, coffee, milk and scones, cream and jam). What a lovely thought. The garden is delightful, the children enjoying the trampoline and swing chairs. The house is in a great spot to get to lots of beaches, both south and north coasts, and the many attractions that Cornwall has to offer. This is definitely one of the best holiday properties we have stayed in. Thankyou Jane and family for allowing us to use your home.
A charming house to come and relax in. The house is set is a quite location, you can enjoy sitting in the garden in the evening after a hard days sightseeing. It ideally situated for travelling around cornwall and lots of places within 30 min drive There's adequate room in the house and was ideal for our party (2 bathrooms and additional downstairs toilet were very helpfull). The only thing I would recommend was to add a television in the Kitchen / conservatory as we lived in this area and rarely used the lounge. Overall a trouble free holiday. Thanks Jane :)
Wonderfull house with a wonderfull garden; perfect for chirdren. We stayed there with two families; 4 adults and three children. House is perfectly equiped and offeres enough space. Location is ideal for sightseeing tours to the South as well as to the North coast. Only 40 minutes drive to St Ives. Good supermarkets nearby. Houseowners were very helpful and nice. Recommendations helpt us a lot. Absolute highlight was the dinner on our last day in Cornwall at the Pub called "Pandora". Thanks Jane for that recommendation.
Brampton was the perfect house for us and our friends. We have 3 small children between us and they loved the garden and trampoline. The house had all the facilities we needed and beds to suit all of us. The area is beautiful and the house is a short drive to many different beaches and activities to suit all ages. We had a brilliant week and would definitely return again.
