About the property

Cottage in St Minver, Nr. Polzeath, Cornwall, England - Very Peaceful Rural Location, 5 Minute Drive To The Beach

The cottage has an open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area. There are 2 bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with 2 singles. There is a full kitchen with electric cooker, fridge, microwave and washing machine. The dining table seats 6 and there are 3 comfortable sofas and a flat screen TV.

The cottage was built in 1844, constructed of local stone with a slate roof. It was originally the barn where the threshing was done and to the rear, it still has the old 'Engine House' or 'Gin House' which was the building where a donkey was used to power the mill. The cottage has recently undergone a complete refurbishment, including new bathroom and kitchen.

We have been married for 40 years and have enjoyed over 30 years of family holidays in this part of Cornwall. We have 3 children all of whom loved the beaches and surfing, now it is the turn of our 2 grandchildren to make use of the buckets and spades! As we approach retirement we plan one day to spend most of our time at the cottage, but in the meantime we let it to guests.

LINDA FRENCH purchased this cottage in 1996

Why LINDA FRENCH chose Saint Minver

The cottage is in a perfect spot for exploring Cornwall. Although situated on the North coast it is a short trip down to the South coast and all that it has to offer. The beaches are only a few minutes away but the cottage is in a beautiful peaceful location, away from the main road. After a day on the beach or exploring the surrounding area it is a lovely place to come back to. The nights are so peaceful you can hear a pin drop.

Perfect Cornwall Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We are on our 6th year staying in Cow Cottage and I can't recommend it highly enough. The cottage provides everything you need for a seaside getaway, with comfy beds and plenty of hot water to wash away the sand at the end of the day! The location is perfect - close to sandy beaches but quiet and secluded. The car park is behind the group of cottages, so the grassy area in front is safe for children to play and explore. If the weather is kind, the outdoor table allows for a relaxing alfresco drink after a hectic day on the beach. Can't wait to go back!!
