Bodrugan and neighboring Edgcumbe are traditional stone barns on the edge of the old farming hamlet of Penare, now converted into spacious and comfortable accommodation. Both have their living room on the first floor to make the most of the views over the countryside, and both have enclosed gardens. Just a short walk down the hill is Granny's, a cosy cottage ideal for two.

The beautiful bathing beaches of Vault and Hemmick are close by, as is Gorran Haven an unspoilt fishing village nestling around a cluster of fisherman cottages and a secluded cove.

Take a walk from the cottage along the footpath to Dodman Point, the highest point in south Cornwall and enjoy the spectacular views. A haven for walkers, bird-watchers and budding archaeologists alike, the Dodman offers space from the hustle and bustle and a chance to get back to nature.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    Well equipped and cosy

    The cottage was so welcoming and beautifully cleaned and presented. There were lots of provisions for our toddler which were fantastic e.g. stairgate, safety catches on windows, Peppa Pig plate!, really good cotbed with mattress. Cottage extremely well equipped and cosy. Great location. Really liked the Tuesday start so we could avoid weekend traffic coming to Cornwall. We liked NOT having wifi.

    Well maintained

    Bodrugan is a comfortable and very well-maintained holiday cottage, in an excellent location near numerous coastal footpaths. "It would be better if the bins in the garden were screened. It would also benefit from a bit more privacy in the garden from the neighbours (although they were not a problem!). We used the folding chairs in preference to the benches because they had backs on them. Another one could be provided for a third guest. Please thank Pat Bonner for returning the clothes I left behind! Also for ensuring the house was very clean and welcoming."
