About the Owner

Di and Trish (we are sisters) have owned Church View for 6 years. Having holidayed in the local area, since childhood, with our parents, the North Cornwall area has always been very dear to our hearts. We have just returned from the Middle East, and are, at long last, enjoying a lifelong dream in this lovely village, where the warmth and welcome from the local residents has been unbelievable.

Church View is a wonderful old cottage which was in desperate need of a total overhaul when we purchased it. In the last two years, it has been completely renovated and is now a much-loved, comfortable, cosy home. We have left it well equipped, and sincerely hope you will enjoy your stay in it. Please look after it for us, and leave it in the same condition in which you find it upon arrival.

A beautiful Cottage and it was a pleasure to stay here. First class accommodation

  • 5 of 5

So we booked on-line and the pictures don't do the Cottage justice. High class furnishings and exceptionally clean. Dianne the owner added some nice touches with some welcome items including milk, tea, flowers and biscuits all Cornish produce. The garden is fully enclosed and our two dogs loved it. Nice cosy log fire backed up by central heating. Cottage full of character and more than adequate room for us. The Village is one of the friendliest places I've been to and the locals are engaging and welcoming. A local shop is well stocked for your basic needs. The White Hart is good value and well worth a visit for food and a drink although you will need to book if you're going at peak times.

Beautiful cottage in a perfect location. A real treasure of a find

  • 5 of 5

We booked this beautiful cottage, at quite short notice, and our experience from the outset was fabulous. Dianne(the owner) kept us informed and up to date every step of the way. Pictures cannot do the property justice, as it is a treasure of a property in a wonderful location. All of the rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. The cottage was clean and has everything you need for your holiday, it's like a home from home. The garden is like a secret garden, full of little corners of charm.

We enjoyed a truly wonderful stay and will certainly stay here again in the near future.

When we arrived we were provided with tea, milk, jam, cream, scones and a bottle of wine! What a treat! Church cottage was amazing, the level of fixtures and fittings was 5 star. You had everything you could wish for and then some! Dianne was helpful and charming. The private garden and covered patio ensured alfresco dining even when raining. Lovely village. Wonderful! I would definitely recommend this property.

A real gem in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

Very rarely does a cottage surpass expectations, but in the case of "Church View" this was certainly the case. We should probably keep it a secret, but Di and Pat deserve publicity so that others can share in its delights.

We booked last minute, and when we arrived found the cottage has been beautifully restored, and is like Dr Who's Tardis; much larger than it looks and very cosy and furnished to a high standard.

It is very dog friendly, with a secret secluded garden, and has all the touches that make the holiday special, including scones on arrival. There is even very fast broadband if you need it.

St Teath is one of the most friendly villages you could hope to find, with the local stores and pub, "The White Hart", a stones throw away, and is a perfect base for exploring the many jewels that North Cornwall has to offer. There were countless walks for the dogs down the country lanes and snickets, and the locals were always happy to provide advice and guidance.

We will definitely be going back, if it is available again after others find this jewel in North Cornwall's accommodation!

From the Owner

Having holidayed in the area for 50 years, it has been a lifelong dream to live in this beautiful, rugged part of North Cornwall. St Teath is in a perfect position to enjoy the many, varied delights of the area. Close to the coast and the popular village of Port Isaac (Doc Martin's home), it is still very much a living, country village, within easy reach of, yet away from, the crowds and bustle of the popular tourist destinations.

Activity and Interests


The rugged North Cornish coast is a within 10 minutes drive of St Teath. There are pretty, fishing villages to explore (Port Isaac and Boscastle to name but two), surfing at Polzeath or Trebarwith, windsurfing or kite-surfing at Daymer Bay on the Camel Estuary. If you're feeling energetic, a walk along the spectacular coast path is a must, or maybe a leisurely wander with your dog along Daymer Bay to Rock and then catch the ferry across to Padstow. All within 20 minutes of the cottage.


Owing to lack of public transport, a car is a necessity to access facilities and amenities outside the village.
