Charming Cottage With Easy Access To The Eden Project, Lost Gardens Of Heligan

Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
Lovely cottage in Polgooth - well placed to explore Cornwall with safe,sandy beaches close by.

Brookside is a charming, South facing Cornish cottage that sits in a quiet country lane. The cottage is more than 150 years old and has been refurbished to a high standard, decorated in a simple,modern style yet retaining its period charm.

The cottage offers privacy when dining al-fresco on the patio plus spacious accommodation for six plus a cot with three bedrooms (two doubles, one twin) and a large family bathroom. The lounge-dining room has a huge original stone fireplace with an efficient wood-burning stove. Furnishings are modern yet invitingly comfy.

The cottage looks onto a peaceful,pretty lawned garden with rose bushes,edged by mature trees and shrubs with a natural granite slabbed patio area that faces south,enjoying direct sunlight all day long.Both front and rear gardens are private and fully enclosed by walls,fences and natural hedges. A wealth of mature plants and flowering shrubs (camellias, rhododendrons etc.) surround the property.There is ample parking at the front for several cars.

Just a short stroll along the lane is the village pub.The Polgooth Inn serves great local beers and food prepared using locally sourced produce.It`s a proper family-run place that welcomes children and animals and serves food all day both in the pub as well as the garden.There are more excellent pubs and restaurants within easy reach of Brookside, including Austells (3 mls.) and Kingswood (0.5 mls.)

There is a village shop/off-licence/post office, while larger supermarkets are within a mile or so.

Polgooth is perfect for exploring Cornwall due to its central location. The Pentewan valley which Polgooth borders is great for walking or cycling the dedicated trails leading to the coastal villages of Porthpean (fabulous safe family beach, sailing, watersports), Pentewan ( large beach plus watersports, gymnasium, restaurants), Mevagissey (ancient working fishing port, restaurants, shops) and Gorran Haven (sandy beaches,walks, great pub, coastal walks). Other local attractions include the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project and the beautiful harbour village of Charlestown with its wonderful pub, restaurants and shops.

St.Austell golf club is on the edge of the village and Carlyon Bay golf club is just 3 miles away.

There is a convenient rail link at St.Austell (2 mls.) which is on the main London-Penzance route.

Children and dog friendly.

Free superfast broadband and smart tv.

Clean, cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Brookside, cottage was very clean and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Lovely location with front and back gardens both enclosed and great for our 2 dogs and 5 year old.

Stones throw from the Polgooth Inn which we went to a couple of evenings. Beautiful beaches, and most allowed dogs. The owners advised us to try the coastal walk to Vault beach and we were so glad we did - amazing! We will definately be back again!!

A perfect location for sight seeing and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most wonderful time at Brookside. The cottage is welcoming, homely, spacious and beautifully presented. The gardens are just as gorgeous. We are a family who enjoy home cooked food so the facilities in the kitchen are second to none. The bedrooms a huge. Geoff and Jeannette are so friendly and gave us directions for some very beautiful walks. Cornwall is just beautiful and we have every intention of returning for another wonderful holiday. Our son wanted to pick the cottage up and take it for our home back where we live! I forgot to mention how clean the cottage was as well, I did not have to clean before I could relax. Just perfect in every way. A big thank you for allowing us to enjoy such perfect place for sightseeing shopping and relaxing.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic holiday at Brookside. What a beautiful, comfy and cosy cottage. Very spacious and clean and homely. Loved having the log burner! The gardens were very well looked after and we enjoyed relaxing in them too. The kitchen had every utensil we could ask for , even made a birthday cake! Was amazing arriving to a delicious cake and wine, juice for the kids and even treats for the dog! The owners were very friendly and helpful and gave us great advice on finding dog friendly beaches and good take aways. The Polgooth Inn, 100metres away was lovely and friendly. We've had a fantastic holiday! Thanks for having us! Hopefully be back!

Cornish Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation in a wonderful Location. The listing and pictures were accurate, it was lovely, well equipped and maintained.

The Polgooth Inn is just down the lane has great pub food and friendly staff.

The owners Geoff and Jeanette were very kind and great for information if needed.

Lovely baked cake, milk and wine on arrival (thanks for the switch),The house was spotless.

Visited some amazing beaches at Porthpean, Gorran Haven and Charleston is a lovely afternoon out.

Fowey and Polperro and well worth a visit.

Had a fantastic week here and have already booked the same week for next year.

Thank you Geoff and Jeanette x

Fantastic week away!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was brilliant. As soon as you step into the property you feel at home. Very clean and comfortable! Log Burner, Good WiFi and Free sat. When we arrived they had left wine and cream tea which was exactly what we needed after the long drive. Its situated in a good location and the pub down the road is literally a 1-2 minute walk away. Pentewan beach is really nice and is only a short drive away. Overall a brilliant stay and would reccomend to anyone!
