Please note: Hot tub paid on arrival - £100 p/w. 1 MEDIUM dog only by request - £25pw paid on arrival. No cot (carrycot accepted). WIFI is now available via a satellite link for internet and email use only (no downloads). No mobile/phone reception in the valley.
Only 10 minutes from the sea and just 3 miles from the Eden Project, this quaint little converted cider press with inverted accommodation and double glazing stands on its own across the river from the original mill, surrounded by peaceful grounds and woodland.

Situated in the quintessentially Cornish Luxulyan Valley (no mobile or phone reception) with great natural beauty and recently awarded World Heritage Site status, the cottage has its own riverside garden running down to the banks of the boulder-strewn River Par which forms part of the boundary.

Approached through a narrow gateway to the private parking area, a short walk (100 yards) via a gravel path leads through the orchard to the secluded front terrace where there is a spacious outdoor hot tub (additional charge) for the visitors sole use. From here, a glazed door with low head clearance opens directly into the ground floor bedroom with a 5ft double bed, a beamed ceiling and an en-suite shower room W.C. with hand basin.

In one corner of the room, a wooden staircase winds directly up to a galleried open-plan living room on the first floor with natural wood flooring, a hip shaped ceiling and views of the countryside from several small windows. There is a fitted kitchen area with solid oak units incorporating an electric oven and ceramic hob, a small dining table and chairs and a comfortably furnished lounge area with a leather corner settee.

There are garden table and chairs on the front terrace which catches the afternoon sun and trails lead through the woods to both the lawned garden and orchard bordered on one side by the river and its small tumbling waterfalls.

Luxulyan village and St Blazey, 1.5 miles respectively, each have a pub and local shop/P.O., for a wider selection of amenities, the towns of Lostwithiel, Fowey and St Austell are all within a 15 minute drive. The large, south facing beach at Par Sands and the small sandy harbour beach at Polkerris are both about a 10 minute drive away and there are boat trips available departing from Fowey. There are several golf courses within the immediate vicinity and the Saints Way coast-to-coast recreational route passes nearby.

PLEASE NOTE
- Hot tub paid on arrival at £100 per week.
- No cot (carrycot accepted).
- WIFI broadband is now available via a satellite link for internet and email use only (no downloads)
- This property welcomes one medium sized dog only by agreement at £25 pppw paid on arrival

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.

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.
