Wheal Kitty Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
Formerly part of a dairy building, this lovely property is situated on a hillside, close to the village of St Newlyn East. With under floor heating, exposed beams and modern appliances, this holiday home provides a seamless mix of old world charm and up to date practicality. Well decorated and tastefully furnished, the property also offers a fitted kitchen, a living room with slate flooring and a wonderful garden - ideal for outdoor dining, or relaxing with a drink on a warm summer evening.

Set amidst open fields and winding hedgerows, the North Cornwall village of St Newlyn East offers a peaceful and relaxing alternative to the bustling, vibrant town of Newquay - situated under five miles away. The perfect starting point for a number of walks through picturesque countryside, this lovely town is centrally located for a variety of excellent attractions including many stately homes and gardens, model railways, theme parks, fishing villages and harbours - not to mention some of the UK's best surfing beaches. For a livelier nightlife, visitors will enjoy the various clubs and pubs in nearby Newquay, though also of interest in the town are the impressive Zoo and Sea Life Centre. Also within easy driving distance is the cathedral city of Truro and the magnificent Eden Project.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

Beautiful peaceful surroundings, being situated not far from the main town with a rural farming aspect. Warm, cosy, comfortable and modern property.
Mr Dodd

Peaceful location with wonderful views over the surrounding area. Although quiet, it was not far to the main roads for Newquay and other local amenities were easy to travel to. The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped with friendly owners who were nearby for information. It was a very enjoyable stay.

Everything was excellent. Probably the best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in. All looked like it was brand new - although we now know it was completed a few years ago. People were very friendly and welcoming. The cottage is surrounded by countryside, with beautiful views and is lovely and quiet.

A beautiful cottage in the middle of nowhere and very well converted from the original farm building. Very peaceful and great for 4 adults as we were. The owners left us alone but if we had needed anything they were there.

A lovely peaceful location in a pretty cottage which felt snug during a a storm and airy when it was warm. The location is perfect for getting out and about around Cornwall and there is plenty of room to leave your car outside the door for unloading. The owners were welcoming and available if required but left you alone to enjoy your break in peace. The cottage is very well equipped and nicely decorated and of adequate size.

March 2016
All I can do is reiterate everything positive that has been said about this property. The property is set in beautiful countryside with superb views. Very comfortable. Good quality furnishings. The unique oversize and comfortable bed ensures good sleep. Exceptionally clean and well equipped, providing everything that you need from the moment you arrive to the moment of leaving. A warm welcome from Howard and Ann who were always there for help and advice if required. The bottle of wine and the milk in the fridge on arrival were a welcome touch.The property is in an ideal position for Newquay whilst being in quiet and peaceful countryside. A good base for travelling further afield.The fact that many of the comments in the visitors book referred to multiple visits says it all.

We are in cottage now and what a lovely time we are having in a beautiful setting. Owner greeted us on arrival and was happy to point out places to go. Cottage is lovely, part of a group of renovated farm buildings, but very private. It's very clean and well equipped. We found sofa and chairs to be very comfortable as was our enormous bed. Tasteful decoration throughout love the photo album of the renovation and history. If I were to be critical the only thing I would change would be the toilet roll holder! Don't like it on floor. Would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a peaceful base for touring, it's close enough to everything and far enough away to be in countryside. We brought elderly parents, Howard was kind enough to bring a chair for the bathroom. Cottage is ideal for elderly, young, couples and family's . LOVED it.
August 2014
This cottage was a perfect base for touring round Cornwall. We were greeted by the owner on arrival but otherwise we're left in peace to enjoy our holiday and the stunning views. The cottage is well equipped with all mod cons and utensils. You won't need to take anything extra. The history of the cottage is explained in the welcome manual and it makes you appreciate the hard work which has gone into making this building fell so homely. The hand made 4 poster bed is amazing and we slept well every night in peaceful surroundings, even on our first night during a big storm, we couldn't have felt more snug. The views are stunning and it only takes a couple of minutes to drive to the main road to start your daily adventures. If you just want to chill out in the cottage, there is a large shared garden area, with each cottage having its own table and BBQ. The place was very clean and the complimentary wine was welcomed after a 6 hour drive! We didn't need for anything during our stay but had we have done, then the owners are close by and I'm sure would be most obliging if required. If we decide to return to Cornwall we would seriously consider returning to this lovely cottage. Thank you

We had a wonderful holiday, in a well presented, well designed cottage. Not too far from a convenience store, serious shopping complex at Fraddon within 5 miles. Lots of interesting places to visit, and the coastline an easy hop away. We will return.
very satisfied cutomer.
December 2011
met by owners at door shown around, some esentials in cottage, very well maintained, all mod cons including wi-fi, peaceful location no traffic, owners on site to assist with anything at all, we had a wonderful stay!!!
September 2012
Loved the area, plenty of space around and beautiful views from the windows. Cottage comfortable overall, could have done with more wardrobe space. Lack of storage or shelf room in bathroom. The two settees not very comfortable.Very reasonable price for a lovely place would go back again and have recommended to other people.
