Less than a 5 minute walk down the hill to the safe sandy beach at Porth, this recently upgraded 19th century mid terrace stone cottage is ideal for family holidays and within easy reach of all the activities that Newquay has to offer about a mile away.

Offering a comfortable and well equipped home from home at any time of the year with gas central heating and an open fire, Cockle Cottage is set on the North Coast of Cornwall yet still in a central position perfect as a touring base for exploring the whole county.

Approached from the parking area where there is space for two cars, one in a lockable garage, a pedestrian gate and a dozen open sided steps lead down through the landscaped garden to the entrance at the rear. A half glazed door opens to a modern fully fitted kitchen with a quarry tiled floor, smart dining suite, additional breakfast bar and patio doors to the front courtyard providing a short cut to the beach.

At the rear, an inner hallway gives access to the warm and cosy sitting room with a high painted beam ceiling and sumptuous lounge seating facing the brick fireplace with open fire. Carpeted stairs lead up from the hall to the first floor landing where there is a fully tiled bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath and two delightful bedrooms in a fresh crisp decor. The master bedroom has a 5ft king-size bed, dual aspect windows and a couple of easy chairs in one corner for reading, relaxing and watching television, and the second bedroom has twin beds.

To the rear of the property is a fully enclosed terraced garden with a sheltered paved patio and raised gravel terrace with garden furniture. The South West Coast Path and the large sandy beach offering easy access and safe bathing at Porth are just 300 yards down the hill with a pub and seasonal shop just a little further.

Newquay's local shops, pubs and restaurants are a 10 minute walk and the resort centre with a wider selection of amenities including a Zoo, Sea Life Aquarium and cinema is about a 20 minute walk away or one mile by car. There are several other beaches in the Newquay area within easy reach including Watergate Bay (home to Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Restaurant), Lusty GlazeTolcarne and Fistral, to name but a few.Golf, horse riding and ten pin bowling are all available nearby as is coarse fishing at Porth Reservoir and there is a local bus service operating to Newquay, Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth and Padstow.

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.
