A double fronted cottage of great character at the end of an attractive row of mixed thatched and slate roofed dwellings in the pretty rural hamlet of Bohortha, a few minutes walk from the sandy beach of Porthbeor almost at the tip of St Anthonys Head.

Entered through a small porch with coat pegs which leads into a little hallway wide, rather steep stairs ahead, the cottage has a light, low beamed sitting room on one side. On the other side a beamed kitchen dining room has fitted units and electric cooker.

Upstairs is a bathroom W.C. with hand basin, heated towel rail and shower over the bath and two bedrooms with twin and a king size double bed respectively. The cottage is not ideal for toddlers. The area has lovely coastal and rural walks from the cottage and the foot ferry from Place (10 to 15 minutes walk) across to St Mawes runs every 20 minutes from April to October. From St Mawes, and again by foot ferry, it is possible to cross to Falmouth.

Tucked to one side of a large farmhouse the cottages are reached from an unmade track (where there is room to park) and a short path which leads to a wall and gate at the end of the row. There are open plan gardens to the front and service areas to the rear but each has its own spacious main garden reached by a few steps at the further end of the row about 75 yards away. Crotchet has a large lawn, drying area and lovely wide views of the countryside and sea beyond.

Towan beach about 3/4 mile down the lane has a National Trust car park and easy access by a sloping path.

PLEASE NOTE
- Towels are available at £3 per person per week payable on arrival
- The cottage is not ideal for toddlers
- This property welcomes a maximum of two dogs

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.

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.
