About the property

Country cottage Nr. Newquay and Padstow, nr Watergate Bay, Porth (3 miles)

"Lambs Barn", a lovely detached barn conversion located in pretty Talskiddy hamlet, with St Columb Major town and its shops, cafes and restaurants 2 miles away. Only 3 miles from the beautiful beach at Mawgan Porth and 8 miles from both Watergate Bay and Newquay, North Cornwall. Padstow 7 miles. A quiet country location, one of a few old character cottages on what was once Talskiddy Farm, at the end of a short driveway. A few minutes stroll to the village ‘Duck Pond’ and can continue a pleasant walk down to a little ford over the tiny stream on the edge of the village. Nearby St Columb Major town has pubs, shops, restaurants and cafes. The cottage is detached (one corner just touches adjoining cottage) situated at the top of a short shared driveway. There are patio doors from kitchen/utility room onto the small rear garden (garden furniture) with lawn, shrubs and flowers-really pretty in the summer. 1 dog welcome. The cottage has a front courtyard with table and chairs, a pleasant setting in which to enjoy a meal , with parking space in the courtyard for 3 cars. A great location being only 10 miles from Padstow and 8 miles to Newquay, ideally positioned for exploring this stretch of coastline with probably the best beaches in Cornwall. St Austell on the opposite coast is only 14 miles.

Bedrooms and bathroom are downstairs, with lounge/diner and kitchen upstairs- so as to enjoy the views. Bedroom 1 has 1 double bed. Bedroom 2 has 1 double bed. Double sofa bed in lounge/diner. Lounge/diner with T.V. & DVD. Kitchen with electric cooker, microwave and fridge/freezer. Utility room leading from kitchen with washing machine and tumble dryer and patio doors onto rear garden. Bathroom with bath, overhead shower and toilet.

Linen inclusive. Central heating inclusive. £1 electric meter.

Parking in Lamb Barn's front courtyard for 3 cars. 1 dog welcome but must be kept under control whilst in rear garden.

Lambs Barn

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage in the countryside, lots of places to visit within a short drive.

The owner that lives close by was lovely and so helpful advising places she's taken family for days out and was so approachable and so easy to talk to. Lots of information leaflets left for us with guides to local facilities with maps and vouchers in magazines to use. Owl sanctity was on the doorstep and due to most places doing free return tickets we used these. Lovely beaches and found a nice family orientated one not far away. Shops a short drive away for good shopping and takeaway food.

Lovely big cottage, washing machine available, nice garden with washing line (tumble dry wasn't working) but a clothes line for dry days which was essential for the wetsuits and towels.

Electric runs off £1 coins and seemed fair for the usage considering the size of the place.

We all loved our stay at Lambs Barn especially our 6 year and especially when she came across the sheep being moved down the lane past our front door whilst out for a walk, one of her highlights. Hoping to go back again in 2017 as requested by our daughter.
