Haydon is a beautiful conversion in a stunning location in the heart of the Cornish countryside. With two bedrooms it gives couples, families and friends 4-Star Gold accommodation over two levels. Onsite facilities include a games room, heated indoor swimming pool and lots of outdoor space to relax and play.
The cottage is near the quiet village of Luxulyan, close to Charlestown and convenient for the A30 to make it simple to explore the region. The beautiful south coast is only 15 minutes from the cottage, so days out can feature swimming at Polkerris, savouring the picturesque harbour towns of Fowey, Mevagissey or Charlestown with Poldark connections, or sunning yourself at Porthpean, Gorran Haven, or Porthluney Cove. Beaches on Cornwall's north coast are also within easy reach, with places like Padstow and Newquay about a 25-minute drive away.
Favourite activities include walking the stunning South West Coast Path, cycling the family friendly Camel Trail in particular from Wadebridge to Padstow alongside the Camel estuary, mountain biking through Cardinham Woods and Lanhydrock estate, and of course surfing and body boarding on the north coast. Bodmin Moor is close by with swathes of spectacular wild landscape and unforgettable views. Closer to home, the Eden Project is 5 miles from the cottage, with other beautiful gardens nearby at Lanhydrock House, Pencarrow House, Trebah, Caerhays Castle and Glendurgan, as well as the unmisssable Lost Gardens of Heligan just 25 minutes away.
Although Cornwall is a fantastic summer destination, it has plenty to offer visitors in every season. Guests can browse galleries in St Ives, enjoy a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, discover the myths and legends of King Arthur at the spectacular Tintagel Castle, watch the boats in Penzance Harbour, explore country houses and historic buildings, shopping, sightseeing and dining at world-class restaurants. It is such a versatile place to have a holiday that even regular visitors can discover a new favourite view or attraction.
Haydon is one of a select handful of self-catering cottages on Higher Menadew Farm and can be booked on its own or together with other cottages if you are on holiday with your friends or extended family. Please see the owner's website for more information.
