Just 2 miles south of the cathedral city ofTruro and a few minutes drive from the boating beach at Loe, this modern, semi detached double glazed property is set in a courtyard of 4 houses in the village of Playing Place, to one side of the main road between Truro and Falmouth.

Approached from the parking area where there is space for one large or two small cars, one step leads up to the glazed front door which opens into an entrance lobby with an understairs coats cupboard. Leading off the hall are a bright and sunny, pine fitted kitchen with a circular dining suite, and a comfortably furnished, light sitting room with leather seating and sliding doors that open to the rear paved patio.

In one corner of the lounge, carpeted stairs lead directly up to the first floor landing, a bathroom W.C. with hand basin, heated towel rail and shower over the bath, and two pleasant bedrooms. There is a double and one with pine 3ft bunk beds, both with built-in wardrobes and dressing tables. Pets and young children will require supervision outside as the small patio at the rear is not enclosed.

There is a local store/P.O. and telephone box 50 yards away and a choice of four good pubs offering food in the immediate vicinity, the closest just three quarters of a mile. A regular bus service operates to Truro, Falmouth and Helston. Kernewek offers a good base for walkers with woodland and creekside paths in abundance and there is also a coast to coast picturesque cycle trail nearby with bike hire.

The boating beach at Loe with watersports tuition and equipment hire is within a few minutes drive as is the King Harry Ferry providing a gateway to explore the delightful Roseland Peninsula. Trelissick Gardens, Killiow golf coursewith driving range and Foxhole riding stables are all close by and the nearest sandy beaches are at Falmouth, approximately 7 miles.

PLEASE NOTE
- Pets and young children will require supervision outside as the small patio at the rear is not enclosed.
- This property welcomes one 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.
