Coachman's Cottage Beach Cottage description

Holiday home
This cosy, detached one-time coachman's cottage is located on a wooded hillside just one mile from Pentewan beach. Also within easy driving distance of the shops at Mevagissey, the house is situated close to the owner's property. With a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere this property is an ideal base for exploring the many attractions of the 'Cornish Riviera'. Accommodation is composed of two bedrooms - one double and one twin - a fitted kitchen and utility room, a sitting room with woodburner and a conservatory with dining area. From the cottage, visitors can look out across the beautiful two acre garden or enjoy many of the diverse walking routes close by.

The quaint, coastal village of Pentewan is set back from the sandy expanse of Pentewan Beach and boasts a shop and pub, making this a wonderful location for a family day out. Passing through the village is a fascinating coastal path which climbs up the cliffside towards Mevagissey and offers incredible views across the bay toward Devon in the far distance. Good cycle paths also pass close by, whilst the Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a short walk away. Also in the near vicinity is Charlestown harbour - a scenic and historic place to visit. Nearby Mevagissey also offers visitors the chance to see a local fishing village with numerous restaurants serving fresh harbour fish, or alternatively, the Eden Project is just a short drive away.

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.

Apart from the lovely cottage, the extreme friendliness and helpfulness of the owners made this a really delightful holiday.
September 2011
Excellent cottage in a wonderful part of the country.
October 2011
The Coachmans Cottage is hidden from the road up a track. When you turn into the drive you are greeted by the most superb cottage, magnificent gardens, and lovely friendly owners and their dog Holly. This was our 2nd visit to Coachmans Cottage. We hope to visit again. Its a perfect location for exploring the local area, and to sit in the garden after a day out enjoying the area is just so relaxing. There is nothing more you could want from this cottage, beautifully presented, clean and welcoming, and a lovely cream tea waiting for you in the kitchen. Great value for money. Janet and Roger Eden and Mrs June Roberts.

Warm welcome by owner to this cosy cottage Cream tea and welcome groceries supplied on arrival. well presented property with open fire which we loved.

Owners more than happy to help with any requests and will tell you all the local places to visit. Very quiet location but close to good roads Would definately return.
December 2009
The service was very good, the accommodation was clean, cosy, comfortable and well equipped. The local was ideal for touring Cornwall and its varied tourist attractions. The owners were very hospitable and friendly, nothing was a problem. The only downside was there was limited car parking. But other than that we had a fantastic holiday.
June 2010
The cottage is in an excellent position for touring Cornwall, being half way between Plymouth an d Penzance. It,s in a very quiet area. Some good walks straight from the property. The owners who live next door could not have been nicer, or more accommodating. The cottage itself is very well maintained and equipped. The only reservasion I would have is that if you have elderly or infirmed members of the family the bathroom which is downstairs is a bit of a concern for night time visits. Apart from this we cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.
December 2009
The first thing that struck us was the genuine way in which we were welcomed and the great kindness of Muriel and Dave throughout our stay. The facilities were comparable with one's own home while the area offers intresting walks and beautiful scenery. We will certainly return.
