Only a few miles from the beautiful sandy beaches on either side of the Camel Estuary, this light and spacious, double glazed detached house with a large garden is set on the outskirts of the old market town of Wadebridge with views of the surrounding countryside. Ideally situated with easy access to the town amenities half a mile away and just a ten minute walk downhill to the Camel Trail which runs alongside the scenic Camel Estuary towards Padstow.

Entered from the gated tarmac driveway, a couple of railed steps lead down to the covered porch where the front door opens into a central hallway with an adjacent cloakroom W.C. and hand basin. To one side a pleasant sitting room has comfortable seating arranged before an electric log effect fire and there is a dining room at the rear with views of the garden and countryside beyond.

On the opposite side of the hall, a fully fitted kitchen has a pantry cupboard and an oil fired rayburn supplemented by an electric cooker, and a glazed door continues out to a small breakfast room which catches the morning sun.

Upstairs are two bedrooms each with a handbasin and rugs on the natural wood floor, a twin bedded room overlooks the front garden and a double bedroom has far reaching views over the unspoilt fields and farmland at the rear. A bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath completes the accommodation. The owner reserves one first floor room as a store. From the breakfast room, six railed steps lead down to the mature rear garden with a large lawn and sheltered patio area; when the driveway is gated the garden is enclosed.

A newly opened family restaurant and supermarket are half a mile up the hill and a pedestrianised shopping centre with a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants is a 10 minute walk down the hill as are a cinema, recreational park and bicycle hire shop to explore the Camel Trail west to Padstow or east to Bodmin. There is a leisure centre with swimming pool close by, riding stables, several golf courses, and a local bus service operates to the surrounding towns and villages.

There is a wide choice of glorious sandy beaches including Polzeath, Rock, Trevone and Harlyn all within a 20 minute drive and the picturesque fishing harbours at Padstow and Port Isaac are 7 miles respectively by road. The Royal Cornwall Showground is also just a 10 minute walk from the property.

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.
