Just a two minute walk from the beach at Downderry via a flight of gated steps and only a 20 minute drive from the picturesque harbours at Looe and Polperro, Anchors Away is ideally situated for exploring the county by car and enjoying breathtaking scenery along the South West Coast Path.

Set in a popular Cornish seaside village, this detached garden room is tucked away to the rear of the owner's house in a residential cul-de-sac.  Approached from the carport where there is visitor parking for one car, half a dozen steps and a sloping path lead up to a delightful sun terrace for the visitors sole use.

A half glazed door opens to a small entrance porch and an inner door leads directly into the living room with a terracotta tiled floor, neatly fitted galley kitchen and a casual dining area.  A comfortable sofa is adjacent to the large front window overlooking the owner's fruit hedge with a glimpse of the sea

Leading off to one side is a fully tiled shower room W.C. with vanity basin and on the opposite side of the living room is a small double bedroom with a partial sea view between the rooftops of the neighbouring properties.

The Mediterranean style patio with its pergola, built in bbq and sunny aspect is an ideal area for alfresco dining and is filled with the sound of the sea nearby.

Downderry has a shop, cafe, pub and restaurant all a short walk away and the south facing, sand and shingle beach is only a 2 minute walk.  For a wider selection of amenities, Liskeard and Saltash are equidistant approximately 10 miles, both with supermarkets and leisure centres, and the city of Plymouth is a 30 minute drive.

The National Trust houses of Antony, Mount Edgcumbe and Cotehele are all within a half hour drive and the cliff top golf course at Portwrinkle is a 10 minute drive.  The ancient ports of Looe and Polperro are 6 and 9 miles respectively, both offering seasonal boat trips.

The South West Coast Path enjoys wonderful views along Whitsand Bay to Rame Head, and there are woodland walks inland through the Seaton Valley Countryside Park. A community bus service operates within the local area.

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

Loyalty Discount

A 5% loyalty discount is available at some properties for guests returning for a second or further holiday within 2 years through Cornish Traditional Cottages. If you are eligible for the Loyalty Discount your final balance payment will be reduced accordingly after your booking has been submitted. The Loyalty Discount cannot be claimed with any other discount.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
