Property Location


Stenalees has its origins in Medieval heathland farming but the real growth of the village occurred through the industrial revolution with first tin mining and streaming and then china clay production. A couple of miles further south is St Austell. Once a market town St Austell is the central location for visiting the South East of Cornwall. With large attractions such as the Eden Project on the outskirts of St Austell, The Lost Gardens of Heligan a 15 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.

St Austell 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. To the North it is only a 20 minute drive to Newquay, These days Newquay's excellent surfing waters are the town's main industry, where as it once used to be a major export port for counties mining efforts as well as a north coast port for pilchard fisheries. Fistral Beach holds many surfing competitions throughout the year, and also hosts Run to the Sun over May Bank holiday, a VW and Custom Car Show. Both the Women's and Men's Gig Championships are held here, as a balloon festival and surf and lifesaving events. Newquay Zoo now houses 130 different species in sub tropical gardens in the centre of the town.

Watergate Bay and The Extreme Academy offers you a 'ski resort on a beach' and a plethora of activities to keep even the most active occupied. Fifteen Cornwall, founded by Jamie Oliver in 2002 sits on top of the two mile beach at Watergate offering inspirational views for the young chefs and professionals to create fantastic menus from local and seasonal produce. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway just outside Newquay offers both the old and young an interesting day out. Newquay Airport has made the north coast one of the easiest places in Cornwall to get to, with regular flights from various locations across the UK. The town also has an Aquarium, a Waterworld and numerous immensely pretty beaches for the less active. Trerice run by the National Trust is 3 miles outside of the town is an Elizabethan Manor House and Garden with restricted winter opening times.

A great location to explore Cornwall

Super accommodation with incredibly welcoming hosts who added some little extra touches to make our stay extremely comfortable. The property itself is in a great location for exploring Cornwall and a wonderful base for a holiday. We wanted for nothing during our stay as Little Leats facilities provided everything we needed and more. The friendly and thoughtful hosts were on hand if needed and the occasional kind touches (homemade cupcakes on a rainy day) made it that more special. We will definitely book again to stay here - without a doubt.

Little leat review

Cottage was smaller than we expected, It was an extension of their house. Which made space limited. Couldn't properly relax on our holiday as we had the damages to property fee hanging over our heads all week.

If you want quiet and peaceful, then this is a good place

We booked last minute and were lucky to get anything! Very pleasantly surprised at how immaculate the property is. Linda and Allan certainly make sure that the amenities are top notch. We did have a problem on the first day with the fan in the bathroom but this was attended to quickly, graciously and in good humour. Both hosts are very approachable and easy to talk to and 'on site' i.e. just a tap on the door, away. Linda knows how comfortable we found the bed! being of senior years, a comfortable bed is a must and this is fabulous. Decoration and linen top class. You do need transport, though, because although there appears to be a very efficient bus service at the top of the road, it is a little isolated. Great for Eden - just down the road, but to reach anywhere else is a fairly long drive down the road and onto the A30. Not in close proximity to a shop (so remember to either take advantage of the delivery offered on arrival or take your immediate needs with you) or to the pub which is a longish walk down the hill (and probably an even longer one back up again!) Too far for us geriatrics. It is definitely somewhere we would stay again if we were not intending on going too far, but certainly that does not detract from the standard of the let. All in all a lovely holiday and one we really enjoyed.

The perfect place to stay

Allan and Linda are such friendly and welcoming hosts and Little Leat is a very cozy and comfortable place to stay. It has everything you need for a short stay and is well situated to access the whole of Cornwall while being in a less touristy area so itA?s not too busy. Very close to Eden Project and the coast. Highly recommended!

Clean, comfortable and a great location.

Little Leat is a great little gem tucked away just north of St. Austell. We were made very welcome by the owners, Allan and Linda, who made every effort to make our stay very enjoyable and comfortable. The cottage was very clean and almost everything was provided; it even had its own front door and key so that we didn't have to disturb the owners who lived next door. We were also provided with a welcome pack and a bottle of wine! All in all, it was a great value for money. The location was also very good if, like us, you wanted to explore Cornwall's south coast and the surrounding area. We would definitely stay there again if we were heading to that part of the world. Thank you Allan and Linda for being the perfect hosts.

Excellent Accomodation, Wonderful time had

We wanted somewhere near the Eden project for a concert we were going to as we didn't want a long drive back at night, happy to say we were home in under 10 mins. I say home, as this is what it felt like for the week we stayed at Little Leat. The accommodation is perfect for 2 and has been done to a very high standard and had everything we needed. A lovely welcome package of milk, wine, cream teas and biscuits were there waiting for us on arrival. We were made to feel very welcome and had some lovey days and meals out thanks to an excellent list provided by Linda. We are hoping this property is available next year for us as we do not want to stay anywhere else now we have found this gem.

We were very impressed with Little Leat and its facilities. Our hosts made us feel extremely welcome and assisted us greatly with their local knowledge. Little touches such as scones, cream and strawberry jam on arrival as part of a welcome package helped us to settle in and feel very much at home. Would like to think we will return in the not too distant future.

Home from home

Booked this annex to the owners property because of the price and standard of accommodation. Chilled bottle of wine and ingredients for a cream tea left by owners for our arrival. Smart TV and iPad to keep us amused in the evening. Modern and very clean plus lots of little extras we didn't expect and wouldn't have brought with us had we known they were available. Warm and cosy and facility to alter heating to suit our comfort. Even though accommodation was an annex we had our own entrance and it felt very private. Only met one of the owners as they were going on holiday but left a nice letter advising us of whom to contact if we had a problem and nice restaurants to visit. All in all a great base for a holiday in Cornwall and we would highly recommmend this accommodation. If I had one negative thing to say it would be the shower is quite small so if you're on the stout side you might have a problem.

Gem of a property

We stayed at Little Leat for two weeks in June. The property itself attached to the owners property was spotlessy clean on arrival, and although the arrival time was set for 4.00pm, we were contacted by the owner Allan on our journey to the property advising that the property would be available earlier, considering the weather that day, this was very welcome. The property itself was spotless and had everything we needed for our stay. The owners were very accommodating and although living next door were not noticeable unless needed. The property itself was a great base for touring Cornwall with great access to all coasts of the county. Great car parking at the property, and a lovely welcome pack on arrival, if visiting Cornwall again we would have no reason not to book to stay at Little Leat. Excellent.

This is a must if you're visiting Cornwall. I cannot rate The Little Leat high enough!

Where do I start. The owners....Allan and Linda are a genuinely nice, friendly and approachable couple. We arrived (without supplies) to find a welcome pack which consisted of wine, chocolate, scones, jam, cornish cream and many more! Even treats for the dogs!! This was a beautiful touch that wasn't expected, greatly appreciated and show that they put a huge effort into making sure their guests feel welcome and relaxed. The accommodation..... was immaculate! It's beautiful, cosy, comfortable and has everything you could possible need + more! It has the benefit of apple tv for those relaxing nights in after a long day touring, or just handy to keep the kids entertained whilst waiting to go out. The sound system is amazing! There's a private garden area if you wished to sit or eat outside and a log burner for the cooler nights or just for the ambience!! The apartment is central to all the seaside towns, each within 20-25 minutes to reach. The furthest we travelled was to St Ives and even that was less than an hour!! Linda suggested we visit Padstow and we're so glad she did. What a beautiful place. I couldn't have went abroad and found anywhere as nice. In fact, all the seaside towns were lovely with their narrow streets with shops dotted within and around them. Padstow was our best by far though. We visited Golitha Falls which is a lovely nature reserve walk and has a river running through it. The dogs thoroughly enjoyed swimming in it! Inkies BBQ trailer sits in the car park and sells food, ice cream and drinks. All very reasonably priced and terrific value for money. My husband took his first golf lesson, also recommended and arranged by Allan and Linda and it wasn't expensive either. I can only reiterate that The Little Leat is a MUST if you're planning on going to Cornwall on holiday. If we ever travel to Cornwall again, I will most definitely stay at the Little Leat. Thanks Allan & Linda for a wonderful and memorable stay.

Little Leat provided us with everything we needed for a really great week in Cornwall. We had a very thoughtful welcome pack waiting for us - including biscuits for our dog! The apartment was spotless, with everything supplied, a real 'home from home'.Ideally situated for many places of interest - The Eden Project was only about 25 mins. away - we had very good weather and visited many places during the week. We would definitely recommend Little Leat, and Allan and Linda are on hand to answer any queries. We liked it so much we are going again later in the year!

Home away from home.

A true home away from home, everything you need and more. A really clean and comfortable cottage, great base to explore Cornwall, owners were fantastic and there if you needed them. Would definitely return.

Comfort, convenience, completely content!

Our holiday in Cornwall was brilliant and a large part of that was where we were staying. The property is well placed just outside of St Austell allowing all areas of the county to be easily accessible by car. The accommodation itself is comfortable, incredibly clean and contains everything you could expect and more; the owners have thought of everything and created a lovely, inviting and sophisticated place to stay.

Perfect for two people with varied places of interest within easy reach. A stress free holiday !

Little Leat was well situated to explore this part of Cornwall. We were able to go to a different place every day of our fortnights stay. The flat is extreamly clean with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The owners, Allan and Linda, were very friendly and do check that all is well with the flat. A car is essential as the shops are around three miles away, roads to reach them are very good. Private off road parking at the flat is very easy, unloading suitcases can be done right by the front door which is kept for your exclusive use. When we visit this part of Cornwall again we will certaintly check if we could rent Little Leat, an ideal place for a couple. Doug Waterman

Little Leat is an Excellent place to Stay

Both my Wife and I are very pleased to have stayed at Little Leat. The owners who are lovely people, have spared no expense in ensuring that everything from the Cutlery to the Toaster and the super duper TV system, which is huge and offers the best sound system, is the best possible quality. The Kitchen looks as if no-one has ever used it and I know that Linda is obsessed with cleaning and everything was spotless. The Bathroom is magnificent with a fantastic shower. There is on site parking and use of the Garden and BBQ and their Dogs are lovely, although they keep them away from Guests, as do the owners who you only see by chance. Despite looking at the Video and pictures of the property, which are very impressive, it does not do Little Leat justice. I know that the quality of the property warrants the Cottage being in a higher price bracket but the owners are content to have regular bookings, and repeat bookings. Little Leat is ideally positioned in the heart of Cornwall and every possible attraction is within easy driving distance. We will stay their again and would recommend Little Leat to our family and friends. I would also say that I was very impressed with Cornwall Cottages. Everything was perfect and simple and I would be pleased to offer their services to anyone who was looking to Holiday in Cornwall. Thank you for a perfect Holiday. Jon & Denise

Great cottage, Good location, Welcoming owners

The cottage is lovely, a small annexe attached to the owners house with everything you could need - good, well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge area and a small table for dinner. There is a good TV, radio and Wifi to keep us entertained in the evenings after a hard day walking. The cottage even came with an iPad for our use which was a nice surprise. The location is great in terms of access to a wide range of Cornwall and even into Devon, within a few minutes drive of the Eden Project and within 30-40 minutes drive of the North and South coasts. The only downside is the need to drive to all these places but this is made up for by the fact that you can get to all of them in a short drive. The owners were great - keen to make sure our stay was comfortable but also happy to leave us to ourselves in the evenings and the Cream tea, packet of biscuits and bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived was fantastic! Overall a great package.

Absolutely wonderful

The location of the cottage enabled us to visit lots of wonderful sights, then being able to come back to such a fantastic property made our holiday. Allan and Linda were available when we needed them but were not invasive generally. We will most certainly go back again.

A fantastic retreat

We stayed at little Leat for 5 nights in April 2015 and had a fantastic time. The accommodation was immaculately clean, well decorated and equipped with everything we needed. The location was perfect as it was in quiet area that was easy to find and within easy driving distance to the whole of Cornwall. Allan and Linda were very friendly and welcoming, but not intrusive at all. As non-dog owners we have previously stayed in dog friendly accommodation and found the 'doggy whiff' lingered but this was absolutely not an issue at little Leat. I cannot recommend this place enough-fantastic value for money!

Perfect bolthole

Little Leat is the perfect place for exploring Cornwall as there is good access to main roads. It is very comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen was well equiped, the bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of storage space for clothes/shoes/cases. The standard of finish was very high and thoughtfully laid out. The owners, Linda and Allan, were very welcoming, helpful and respectful of your privacy. There was easy parking on site. We are already recommending Little Leat to friends and family and hope to visit ourselves again in the future. There is so much to explore in Cornwall and Little Leat is the perfect base.

Our lovely Cornish break

Little Leat was booked on line and looked nice. The reality far exceeded our expectations. It was beautifully decorated and equipped with all you could possible need. The hosts Linda and Allen were helpful but not intrusive. The location is perfect for touring and cosy to come back to so perfect for most seasons. Very pleased to have found such a treasure and will be back to visit again.

last minute break

The accomodation was small but fantastic and had everything we needed to cook evening meals etc. Spotlessly clean and owners were very acommodating to our requests. Car required as nothing really in walking distance but ideally located for lots of Cornwall beauty spots and tourist spots. Would recommend highly.

Fantastic accommodation in a great location.

I arrived at Little Leat to a very friendly, warm welcome and throughout my week long stay the owners of the property proved to be very helpful and approachable. The annex was exactly as described; it was immaculate and extremely well equipped, especially the kitchen. The owners greeted me with a supply of tea, coffee, sugar and milk which was a lovely surprise after my long journey. There was plenty of storage space, including a walk-in wardrobe, so it was easy to pack the cases out of sight for the week. The off street parking was spacious and it was an added bonus not to have to worry about where to park my car. The property was ideally located, being very close to the main roads which provide easy access to all areas in Cornwall and it was only a short drive to plenty of tourist attractions. The owners provided a folder full of leaflets about the nearby attractions, ferries and also a local map which was very useful.

Perfect stay in a lovely and comfortable appartment

We had really great days in Cornwall staying at the Little Leat. Everything in this lovely appartment is brand-new and first-class. We felt very comfortable and the hosts are just great. The Little Leat is placed very central in Cornwall what is perfect for trips around the area. We enjoyed our time so much and will definitely come back.
