Edgcumbe and neighbouring Bodrugan 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!

    Warm, cosy cottage

    It was very good to have a warm, cosy cottage to return to after the soaking we got on our walks with our dog. It was also a huge help to have an enclosed garden for him to run around in.

    Well equipped kitchen

    I won the holiday as a raffle prize. It was a complete treat to have a free holiday in an area I probably would not have otherwise chosen. Cottage was warm and cosy, kitchen well equipped, knives sharp (hurrah!). Welcome tea tray and fresh flowers were lovely.

    Beautifully presented

    Beautifully presented and welcoming after a long trip. Gloriously remote and the perfect antidote to the pace of life in the south east of England.

    Little touches made it special

    Wonderful to have the wood to burn for the fire, didn't mind paying separately for it as it was so convenient to have it available outside in the garden. What a lovely touch. I like that the heating was on when we arrived and it was warm to come in to. It was the little touches that made it special for us, the biscuits left with the tea tray, the lovely book collection to read, the photos of the barn before it was converted, all this makes a difference and makes the experience unique.
