Nestling in a peaceful sheltered valley about 10 minutes by car from Restronguet Creek and Falmouth, this recently completed, small detached single-storey timber clad lodge is set to one side of the owners own home with views of about 10 acres of fields where the owners sometimes keep their shire horses.

Within an area of outstanding natural beauty, Clippity Clop has been purpose built with double glazing, modern conveniences in a pleasant light decor, and restful views along the pretty valley from the comfortable accommodation.

Approached from the parking area adjacent to the property where there is space for one car, a gently sloping concrete path leads up to patio doors which open directly into the pleasantly furnished open-plan living room with a slate effect laminate floor.

In a light and airy decor with made-to-measure vertical blinds, there are two comfortable leather reclining armchairs with picturesque views of the lush valley, a small mosaic dining set and a smart galley kitchen with modern fitted units.

Leading off to the rear is a double bedroom with a fully tiled en-suite shower room W.C. with vanity basin and heated towel rail. There are two modern electric radiators that provide enough warmth all year round and there is also an external utility room with laundry facilities and space for wet weather/beach gear etc.

A small gravel patio area sits to one side of the lodge where visitors can enjoy watching the abundance of birds and wildlife that frequent this natural landscape and woodland.

The nearby village of Ponsanooth, meaning "bridge at the stream", is a short stroll and has a friendly village pub, local store/P.O. and church. Also within a 15 minute walk is the Kennall Vale Nature Reserve with picturesque woodland, ponds and cascading waterfalls.

There is a bus stop within an 5 minute walk with a scheduled bus service running between Truro and Falmouth, and there is a large supermarket at Penryn, 10 minutes' drive. Falmouth, home to the National Maritime Museumand Pendennis Castleis about 4 miles, the cathedral city of Truro is 6 miles, and the Bissoe cycle trail is nearby.

For garden lovers, the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of HeliganTrelissick and Trebahare all within a 40 minute drive respectively.

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.
