Property Location


The village of Tregony (3.5 miles away) in Cornwall is often referrred to as the 'gateway to the Roseland'. The exceptionally wide Fore Street is a relic from the days when this was a busy port and market town with considerable traffic. The port has long since silted up due in part to china clay workings up stream, but Tregony has retained its charm. Tregony has an unusual clock tower on Fore Street and the seventeenth century almshouses which boast an unusual wooden gallery. The site of a twelfth century Norman castle known as ‘Treg-ney’ from which the village got its name is situated on Tregony Hill.

Tregony has a good local convenience store, plus a Post Office and good village pub in the Kings Arms. For really good food, we recommend the Kings Head at Ruan Lanihorne, only a short drive away. The city of Truro (10 miles away) with it's great shopping including a Tesco, Sainsburys & Marks & Spencers, is within a 15 minute drive of Tregony.

St Austell (5 miles away) was once the major producer of the worlds China Clay, now with cheaper foreign imports the industry is in decline but The Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum set in two former working pits depicts the countryside in years gone by. Wet weather activities could include the visitor centre at St Austell Brewery, sampling beers and ales made on the premises. The brewery has recently started exporting their products across the Tamar River to England, so you may just find where your favourite brew is made.

With large attractions such as the Eden Project on the outskirts of St Austell, The Lost Gardens of Heligan a 20 minute drive towards Mevagissey, and Charlestown mere minutes away it provides an ideal base for your travels. The coastal town of Fowey is a simple 20 minutes drive past the China Clay port of Par, offering fabulous restaurants, galleries and gift shops. A short car ferry across the river takes you on to Polruan. Daphne du Maurier spent her later years in properties in and around Fowey, a festival of her works takes place each May.

Accommodation review

Location was lovely and upstairs living area was very comfortable. Downstairs bedrooms felt and smelled a bit damp and bathroom could do with updating.

From the Owner:
I’m sorry you were disappointed with the property. I appreciate you had a child and a baby. You used the outside rotary airer on the first day only. We assume that for the rest of your holiday you dried all your washing inside, despite the weather being good, this would account for the property smelling damp.

Excellent all round

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Pam and Nigel were excellent hosts, ensuring you had everything you required for a great holiday, really friendly and very welcoming. The cottage is in a lovely rural area, central for north or south coasts, nice and quiet for relaxing after a day of exploring Cornwall. Would definitely be going back to this place in the future.

A perfect little cottage in the middle of Cornwall for your holidays

The cottage provides everything you need for your holidays in Cornwall. It is a perfect getaway to see all the interesting spots in middle and south Cornwall. A nice little terrace with a set of garden furniture gives you the opportunity to enjoy some time near the cottage as well. Our hosts Nigel and Pam have been very welcoming, we got a welcome package by mail right after our booking and even have received some messages via cellular phone closer to our arrival with very helpful information like how to get to the cottage. We can recommend this cottage to every party of up to 4 people without any reservations.

Lovely cottage

In our opinion this is a very lovely cottage in a very pretty location, very central for getting to Truro, falmouth, newquay, its not even very far to places like lands end so excellant location for us. The cottage is very clean, tidy, provides everything as per website, wifi is a little tempremental but this is to be expected out in the country, the property is warm and cosy, me and my partner stayed for the week and i can honestly say its one of the best holidays we've ever had and one of the best cottages we have stayed in. Pam and Nigel are lovely people in our opinion and sent us tons of info prior to going and they were very lovely when meeting them, we like to be left to our own devices on holiday, they done precisely this and we cant thank them enough but they wouldve been there had we needed anything and nothing was too much trouble this was very clear. There is a lovely set of table and chairs out the back of the cottage and we sat there one nice sunny afternoon with a bottle of wine and couldnt have imagined anywhere more perfect. All in all i cant recommend this cottage enough, unfortunately we dont travel down to cornwall very often as its a 6 hour trip for us but will hopefully be able to come down again soon and we would not hesitate to come back to this cottage

review

The cottage was very comfortable and the owners were very welcoming. We appreciated the automatic heating system as we were unlucky enough to have a day of gales and horizontal rain. Excellent location for the Eden Project and Gardens of Heligan and also within easy distance of the Roseland and the North coast beaches.

Highly recommended - the best we've stayed in!

Little Carwinnick is slightly off the beaten track, but not by much! The location is quiet but very well-placed for conveniently-accessing the best bits (town and country) of Cornwall. We were met by the owners, who showed us around the cottage/barn and gave helpful information to help ensure an enjoyable stay. The accommodation was clean, bright and well-furnished; modern washing machine, dishwasher and fridge were included. It was a pleasant surprise to find that cleaning materials (and washing-up, dishwasher and washing machine detergent) had been provided by the owners. Crisp bedlinen, loads of hot water, all very pleasant indeed. We enjoyed a week of dry, sunny weather and even managed a few glasses of wine on the patio at sunset. We hope to visit again.

A wonderful holiday cottage

We had a wonderful week at Little Carwinnick. Excellent accommodation with everything you could possibly need. Well placed for travelling to both North and South coasts. A lovely and very comfortable place to come back to after a days exploring around many places of interest in Cornwall. Nigel and Pam were very friendly and welcoming. We only wish that we could have stayed longer!

Perfect

We spent a wonderful week in Little Carwinnick. The location is excellent for visiting Cornwall, the barn is very cosy, well equipped, and in excellent condition. Together with the other cottages on the premises, you get the feeling of living in a tiny village surrounded by ample grounds. The owners are very friendly and provided helpful tips for walks throughout the area.

Great location, disappointing cottage

The cottage was quite basic with little storage in the bedrooms and what was available was had a strong smell of damp. In addition we felt the level of cleanliness was inadeguate. It's a shame as the location and setting were great!

From the Owner:
So sorry you had a disappointing experience at Carwinnick. We are really surprised that you found a smell of damp, bearing in mind that Cornwall has just experience its warmest 4 weeks since we converted the barn in 2007 and we are open all the year with numerous winter bookings. No one has ever complained before either on Upfront reviews or TripAvisor. I won't respond to your comments on cleanliness, except we re-cleaned within 24 hours of your arrival and you were still dissatisfied.

Family's return to cornwall after 10 years

Lovely settings down a narrowed lane, hidden away in the greens of cornwall. LOcation was although hidden, easy to find because of the very good information provided before arrival. I used a pinpoint map location on my satnav. The owners went out of their way to accomodate our family , even provided us as exceptionwith a first day morning breakfast assortment. Even if we were earlier than breakfast in a hurry to go and enjoy cornwall, we did appreciate the warm wellcome. The owners were a bit suprised , when we thought breakfast could be ordered as no one every did ( and there is normally no need , except..), as we believed and read from the informations presented on website and pdfs. Properties are very cosy, cornish rural stylish but very modern and equipped with all facilities. Ideal was the sun daywarmed livingspace with kitchen upstairs and the summer cooled bedrooms downstairs. If just to mention 1 minus point: for a family of 4 , 2 adults and 2 almost adult children, just 1 toilet facility integrated in the badroom, left us with long waiting times in the morning and evenings . A second seperate toilet would be a perfect upgrade ! Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay over very much , enjoying as we did 10 years ago, when children were still much younger and we as well !
