About Riverside Cot

This delightful holiday cottage is situated in the tiny hamlet of Cockwells, just off the main A30.

Riverside Cot is a traditional, cosy Cornish cottage built in 1880 of granite and stone which provides a high standard of accommodation for two people to relax and enjoy a memorable holiday. With its open beams and granite fireplace this cottage is a Cornish gem.

It is located conveniently close to all transport links and is within walking distance of a convenience store/post office and pub.

If you enjoy walking, there are plenty of public footpaths to explore locally as well as the South West coastal footpath. The National Cycle path route, “the first and last trail” is close by.

The cottage is ideally situated for discovering the many delights that West Cornwall has to offer. Picturesque St Ives with its narrow cobbled streets, Blue Flag awarded beaches and the renowned Tate Modern is only five miles away. Hayle with its golden sands and surf is only four miles. Go west and within a ten minute drive you arrive at Mounts Bay, recently voted one of the most beautiful bays in the world, home to the magical fairytale castle of St Michael's Mount which can be reached by foot via a causeway or if the tide is in by ferry boat.

Continue on and you arrive at the gateway to west Cornwall, Penzance - with its many shops, cafés and restaurants catering for all tastes.

If you wish to explore further afield, Newlyn, Mousehole and the Minack Theatre are a short drive. Lands End is just fourteen miles and to the east is the Eden project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Riverside Cot is ideal as an all year round holiday rental whether you choose to tour, relax or simply want to escape for some peace and quiet!
