On the far side of Gerrans Bay from Porth and St Anthony, the old farming hamlet of Gwendra is tucked into the low cliffs immediately above the long sandy beaches of Carne and Pendower. Gwendra consists of Dairy Cottage and four other holiday cottages,Mowhay, Granary, Gwendra Wartha and Hayloft.

The cottages have been converted from traditional stone and slate farm buildings to form stylish and comfortable accommodation. Dairy cottage is just a short walk away from the sandy beach and yet it is a secluded and out-of-the-way place to spend your holiday. The cottage is surrounded by lawns perfect for lounging and it has its own picnic table for dining al fresco whilst taking in the magnificent sea views.

The combination of cliffs, creeks, estuaries, headlands, woods and beaches linked by many miles of footpath, gives a fantastic variety of walking routes, much is which is maintained by our rangers and volunteers. Pick your route to suit your mood, as well as the weather. The Roseland peninsula has a wealth of wildlife to discover and stunning landscape guaranteed to revitalise the soul.

The pretty village of Veryan with its thatched round houses, pub and shop is within easy reach. Nearby the unspoilt fishing village of Portloe is a great place to enjoy a cream tea. This picturesque spot has made it a popular film location over the years.

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!

    Fine job!

    Location of the cottage; cleanliness and overall quality, made our stay enjoyable. You're doing a fine job; just keep the price reasonable.

    The location of the cottage, overlooking the sea, and the peace and quiet were all just wonderful. It was a bit "out in the sticks" but that has its advantages! The high standard of furnishings and comfort and cleanliness of the place made it a real pleasure to stay there.

    Made enjoyable..

    We enjoyed our stay in Cornwall during this early Easter. The weather was mixed which added to our enjoy, we had sun ,some rain ,some wind and a storm and we were able to see nature with all these conditions Spring flowers, wetting road and grass, clam sea and waves crashing on the rocks, we had it all. The added bonus to our enjoyment was the beautiful cottage that we had chosen. It had all that we wanted, a warm welcome arrive, a view out of this world, fully with all that we needed, a beautiful bedroom with a large bed,a super bathroom with under floor heating and helping and welcoming staff all who added to our enjoyment. Having find this gem we shall certainly consider another holiday here at this part of Cornwall.
