Nestled in a secluded Cornish valley, Flying Hooves is situated midway between the Cathedral City of Truro and the picturesque harbourside town of Falmouth which are about a 10 minute drive respectively. 

This comfortable detached single storey cottage benefiting from its own enclosed little garden is set within the grounds of the owners home, with views of about 10 acres of fields where the owners sometimes keep their shire horses

Conveniently located with easy road access and close to amenities, this freshly renovated and double glazed property offers warm and cosy accommodation from modern electric radiators and enjoys restful views along the pretty valley. 

Fronted by a small paved patio with bench seat, from here, French Windows open directly into a pleasantly light living room with a smartly fitted galley kitchen, two comfortable leather recliner chairs, a small bistro dining set and tile effect laminate flooring which continues throughout. 

An inner hallway gives access to a double bedroom with fitted wardrobe, an adjacent fully tiled shower room W.C. with hand basin and wide shower cubicle, and a rear porch with laundry facilities and coat pegs. 

The private and sheltered back garden is fully enclosed with a small lawn, the sounds of a trickling stream, and a level path and side gate leading to the tarmac parking area in front of the cottage.  The accommodation is completely on one level with no internal steps making it suitable for the less mobile. 

Ponsanooth, half a mile, has a traditional village pub, local store/P.O. and church, there is a large supermarket at Penryn, 10 minutes' drive, and picturesque woodland walks are close by at Kennall Vale Nature Reserve

Falmouth with the National Maritime Museum is about 4 miles, Truro, the Capital of Cornwall, is 6 miles and approximately a 10 minute drive from the water activities of Restronguet Creek and Mylor Harbour

There are many gardens open to the public including the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of HeliganTrelissick and Trebah all within a 40 minute drive respectively.

PLEASE NOTE
- No cot, carrycot accepted. One small dog only

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.
