Appletree Cottage is a tastefully renovated quarryman’s' cottage, perfect for 2 adults, looking for a relaxing break . Regretfully not suitable for children, although small babies (ie not crawling ) are fine, with own equipment.

.It is set in a wooded valley, surrounded by open farmland. Exposed beams throughout and furnished in a simple country style,with original art,country furniture and oriental rugs and inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove ( logs included ) A courtyard garden to the front of the cottage gets morning sun and is full of pots of flowers in season - a nice spot for breakfast! The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need, there is also a dining table and chairs for 2.

The living room is cosy, with plenty of magazines and books, freesat tv, and art to look at. Comfy sofa with throw and large armchair to relax in.

The bedroom is light and airy with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, wardrobe and lots of storage for your things. The bed is very comfortable and has cotton bed linens freshly ironed ( by me !) and a lovely hand made bedspread on it. Extra blanket available and dual control electric blanket for the cooler months, there is also a small heater. The bathroom is spacious and situated right opposite the bedroom making it virtually en suit Towels are included.

.A lovely romantic retreat in the heart of North Cornwalls majestic scenery,cosy and comfortable in all seasons,an ideal base for exploring or just relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. Lovely walks on the doorstep, the coastal path, beaches and Bodmin Moor are within easy reach,and our Bluebell woods are just down the lane.Port Isaac with its' many resturants,cafes and interesting shops is just 10/15 minutes away. The new Doc Martin series will be shot in Port Isaac from April to August 2017, come and watch the filming and perhaps meet the cast !

About Francesca Mattei

Life has carried me in many directions, but time and again, Cornwall always calls me back , I have lived in the county for 30 years and wouldn't want to live anywhere else.I bought the cottage about 15 years ago and started letting in 2012, I come from an artistic background and the cottage reflects that with lots of original artwork and handcrafted items for guests to enjoy.I am a keen gardener so there are always colourful plantings in the courtyard garden and fresh flowers in the house.I feel very lucky to have found such a lovely spot as Newhall Green,it is my sincere wish that you will love Appletree cottage as much as I do.

What makes this cottage unique

Newhall Green is a lovely hamlet, quiet and peaceful and away from the tourist hot spots, yet with easy access to the A39 and the coast road which will take you to some gorgeous beaches , coastal walks, places of interest, or Wadebridge with its great shopping and "not on the high street" individual shops.

A cozy gem

  • 5 of 5

Francesca made us so welcome and showed us how everything works. The cottage is perfect, and Francesca has thoughtfully decorated it and ensured you have everything to hand for a relaxing stay. Situated in a charming hamlet off the beaten track yet near to lots of lovely places. Nathan Outlaw's Mariners pub was amazing for Sunday lunch in Rock.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Francesca's cottage for 5 nights and had a great time. Francesca was a great host and welcomed us and clearly takes a great deal of care with the upkeep of the cottage.

The cottage contains everything you need for an enjoyable stay, including one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in!

15-20min drive to Tintagel, Port Isaac and Padstow.

We don't usually return to the same place but we would love to stay again in future, thanks Francesca!

Lovely, cosy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, just right for a couple, lots of individual features, clean and comfortable. If you are taller than 5ft 5inches watch your head when you come out of bedroom/bathroom! Very helpful owner Francesca. Tucked in a peaceful hamlet, great pub food in White Hart in St Teath, 1 mile away. (Also lovely food above pub average in St Kew, essential to book unless you arrive at 6, 3 tables in bar not reserved) Easy reach of North Cornwall coast. (Port Isaac, Tintagel and Boscastle). Definitely need own transport to make most of holiday, would consider again if coming to this part of Cornwall.

Lovely holiday in a cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is cosy and welcoming. Francesca (the owner) is very friendly and helpful. A great location for exploring Port Isaac, Tintagel, Boscastle, the Eden Project, Padstow and many other areas. There is plenty to do! We really enjoyed our holiday! Thank you!

Fond memories of one sunny week in June!

  • 5 of 5

On the day of our arrival, Francesca was there to greet us and show us where everything was. We could not have wished for anything more. The property was absolutely spotless, and catered for our every need. The village is absolutely delightful, and the silence is 'deafening'! We soon found our way around, and found the dog walking paths which were located a matter of yards from our door. The delightful village of Tithe was just a mile away, and had a wonderfully welcoming pub, with an equally welcoming landlord. The situation of the village is central to Tintagel and Boscastle to the north, and Port Isaac, Rock, and of course Padstow to the south (although it may be worth remembering Padstow gets very busy when parking, so it is easier to park at Rock and get the ferry across!). All in all it was a most pleasant stay, and one we will most certainly be repeating in the near future, and one we will be recommending to our friends.
