Please note: No cot - carrycot accepted. Due to the garden layout, access to the lower section may not be possible for guests with limited mobility.
Within a short drive of five all-year dog friendly beaches and less than a mile by country lane from Caerhays Castle and the south facing sandy cove at Porthluney, this attractive semi-detached stone cottage enjoys tranquil countryside views from every window. Set in a small row of pretty character cottages built in the early 1900's as part of the Caerhays Estate, Doodles offers spacious family accommodation in the peaceful hamlet of Tregavarras.

Fronted by a little walled and gated patio area, the front door set beneath a covered porch way opens to the entrance hall with coat pegs and a slate flag stone floor. To one side, a dual aspect sitting/dining room spans the length of the cottage with comfortable lounge seating arranged before the Victorian fireplace, a warm rug on the slate floor, and a charming dining area at the rear.

The remainder of the ground floor accommodation comprises a shower room W.C. with hand basin and a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room at the rear with two windows enjoying views over the valley. Rather steep carpeted stairs lead up from the hall to the first floor landing where there is a bathroom W.C. with vanity basin and roll top bath with hand shower attachment, and two bedrooms with lovely views over unspoilt fields. There is a bedroom at the rear with a 5ft double bed and the master bedroom at the front has a 6ft double; zip linked which can be separated into twin beds.

A half glazed door from the kitchen leads out to a large decked terrace which catches the afternoon sun and from here, steps lead down to a sloping hillside garden with a partially enclosed lawn and mature shrubs. At the bottom of the garden, a gate opens to a rough area of grass bordered by a trickling stream. A utility room accessed from the decking area provides a useful laundry area with dog wash facility. Parking for one car is available in a garage about 20 yards from the property and a second car can be parked opposite.

Gorran
, just under 2 miles by road, has a church, village store/P.O. and pub featured in TV's Wycliffe and the un-commercialised small beaches at Porthluney, Hemmick and Vault are less than a 10 minute drive. The attractive sandy beach at Gorran Haven is 3 miles, Mevagissey has a selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and boat trips from the harbour about 4 miles away and for a wider selection of amenities the town of St Austell is 9 miles. There are local walks leading to the village of Gorran and the South West Coast Path at Porthluney beach and for garden lovers, Caerhays Castle, famed for its Camellias, the Lost Gardens of Heligan (2 miles) and the Eden Project are all within easy reach.

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.

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.
