Experience - The Area...

Less than 5 miles from each of the historic harbours of Charlestown and Mevagissey and a couple of miles from Pentewan Sands on the Cornish Riviera is this recently renovated , 150 year old former barn, Kegwen.  The sustainable, forward thinking ethos of the developer has resulted in a beautifully presented property which has been sympathetically restored but includes all the modern comforts a holiday home of this standard should have at its disposal.  Kegwen is one of seven individual and unique properties in a super courtyard setting which has been stylishly furnished boasting an array of attractive original features including solid oak beams and exposed stone walls.

The traditional harbours of Charlestown and Mevagissey are 5 miles away and offer a range of cafes, restaurants and shops both with a small beach and good costal walks. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are an eight minute drive with the larger town of St Austell 4 miles with a range of shopping facilities including two supermarkets, a leisure centre, cinema, golf course and mainline railway station.

Stay - The Accommodation...

Access to the private parking for two vehicles is via a pretty, unmade lane.  From the parking area, a gravel path winds gently through the open lawn garden down to a tiered terrace area with colourful shrubs and outdoor dining furniture.  Further steps lead down to the front door and additional seating area.

The double glazed front door leads into a small entrance hallway with slate floor and handy WC. Two steps lead down into the stylish kitchen dining area with smart white gloss units and butchers block work surface contrasting beautifully with the striking slate flooring.  A pair of French doors opens out onto the partially enclosed terrace to the rear with furniture which overlooks the courtyard and is perfect for a morning coffee to absorb the peace and quiet.

Off the kitchen and dining area is the comfortable and contemporarily furnished living room with stunning solid oak beams, exposed original stone walling and feature wood burner taking centre stage. The same striking slate flooring continues with comfortable easy seating focused around the wood burner and television.  French doors (one step up) lead out from the living space to the front terrace and garden.

A Cornish style, twist and turn oak staircase leads up to the three bedrooms and family bathroom.

At the top of the stairs to the right is a spacious single bedroom with views out across the countryside to the rear of the property. On the left is the family bathroom WC with bath, overhead mixer shower, basin and heated towel rail. The bathroom has slate flooring and overlooks the garden to the front of the property.  Further along the landing on the left is a good size double bedroom looking over the garden to the front.  Finally, positioned at the rear of the property, is the spacious master bedroom with king size bed and walk-in shower WC ensuite.  All three bedrooms feature engineered oak flooring as well as ample hanging and drawer space.

The property is heated throughout by underfloor heating via a ground source heat pump.  The wood burner provides supplementary heating during the colder months if required.

The barns are located opposite a working dairy.  London Apprentice a six minute drive, has a small convenience store and restaurant with a traditional pub at Polgooth only an eight minute drive.

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.
