Perranwell Station is equidistant between Truro to the north and Falmouth to the south. Both are approximately 15 minutes drive away.

The Cathedral City of Truro is in the heart of Cornwall and offers a wealth of facilities for the visitor. Dominated by the stunning cathedral, it is one of the south west's most attractive cities. Lemon Quay plays host to many events throughout the year including the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival in the Autumn and the famous Truro Fatstock Show just before Christmas. Regular farmers markets occur every Wednesdays & Saturday and there are also arts & craft markets on Saturdays. There is a wonderful range of shopping for the visitor including all the regular high street stores in addition to Marks & Spencer, Tescos & Sainsburys, but also a wide range of more specialist stores. It really is worth a wander through the back streets and alleys to find some fabulous little boutiques.

Truro has a superb range of restaurants from Bustopher Jones & Mannings on Lemon Street to the always popular Pizza Express. There are lively bars, pubs & nightclubs including the Old Ale House, a busy Wetherspoons and the infamous L2 if you are so inclined! Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of it's unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and place to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day a truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events. You can enjoy the fireworks from your very own balcony!

The beaches at Gyllingvase & Swanpool are coarse sand and are wonderfully sunny south facing spots. You can ride the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens or Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea! There are plenty of places to eat & drink in Falmouth and recently Rick Stein has opened his Fish & Chip Restaurant & Oyster Bar at Discovery Quay adding to the superb mix across the town.

staying at post box cottage

this is our sixth visit at the cottage,and we have loved our stays but we have noticed that it is getting very tired looking,the pillows are very hard and one of the sofas is passed its best. Our biggest complaint is that when they took our booking but did not let us know they are building four houses right next door, the noise with all the work going on was really bad, heavy traffic passing our windows, I feel for any one going in the summer months. I feel we should have been told and then we would definetly not have stayed. On a good note when we complained to cornwall cottages the lady we spoke to was very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend to any one wanting a nice peaceful holiday this is not for you. But again on a positive note it is in a lovely part of cornwall,close to some lovely places

Lovely cottage.

This was our second visit to this lovely cottage and it did not fail to please us very comfortable and warm especially as the nights were a lot cooler than of late and plenty of hot water very spaciops also a pretty little garden to sit out in weather permitting. Perranwell station is a good location to get to several places Falmouth Truro etc there are National Trust properties to go to also. Lovely cream tea on arrival was much appreciated.

The cottage was comfortable. the garden was safe for our Grandson and our Daughter's Dog. We felt the location for us was good as it was near many attractions and our friends. The cottage was well equipped for a family with plenty of plates and cups and glasses rather than having to wash everything up all the time. The cottage was clean. We loved the sunken Bath.

Post Box Cottage May 2019

The cottage is tucked away in the little village of Perranwell Station, a stopping point on the Truro to Falmouth rail line. The principal reason for choosing this locality was its proximity to Helston where we, two married couples, attended The Flora Day and Truro for the International Male Choir Festival. Padstow is a 45 minute drive to the north coast where we also went for "Obby Oss" Day. We were there for 2 weeks and managed to visit many other of Cornwall's attractions and coastal towns during our stay. In the village there's a little shop/post office and a great pub called The Royal Oak. Make sure you have a meal there. They provide small serves for older folk who can't quite manage bigger meals. The quality of the food is excellent. The accommodation was perfect for us. Very cosy rooms/bedrooms and a kitchen with every utensil one could wish for. The bathrooms/showers were very well appointed. The recyclables were a bit of a mystery as to where to put them and when they were collected, but that's about the only matter of any import. Altogether to be highly recommended, especially for couples.

returning stay at post box cottage

Stayed at Post Box Cottages for a few years now because it is handy for us to visit South and West Cornwall. The cottage is always clean and comfortable and with two bathrooms is handy when four or five people are staying. No problems with heating in cold weather and plenty of hot water. Some dvd's available and plenty of games to use if weather is too bad to venture out. Happy to recommend this property.

Home from Home

We have been coming to this lovely cottage for about 12 years now, sometimes on our own and sometimes with family. This time we were with a cousin and his wife who hadn't explored Cornwall for nearly 40 years. Postbox Cottage was, as usual, ideally located for introducing them to all our favourite places. The weather was fantastic, showcasing Cornwall at its very best at this time of year. This cottage never disappoints, is well equipped, nicely furnished, clean, warm and comfortable.

Another comfortable stay

Our sixth visit to Post Box Cottage and as usual a very good week. The location means that you can visit both north and south coasts of Cornwall easily. The cottage is exceptionally well equipped and is ideal for summer or out of season holidays. Our only concern on our recent visit is that we noticed the land adjoining the cottage has been sold and we wonder about the possibility of building work in the near future. Would appreciate any feedback on this concern.

Perfect Home From Home

We enjoyed a stay at the Post Box Cottage, it has everything you need to hand. On arrival it is clean and tidy with a beautiful arrangement of flowers to welcome you along with a cream tea in the fridge start your holiday with style. This cottage is in the perfect location for all the sights in Cornwall and the local towns of Falmouth and Truro only a 5-10-minute drive away, if you fancied a fish & chip take away or the perfect pastie. We had arrived early and got caught in the rain, so had contacted the caretaker to ask if it was possible for us to gain access to the cottage a few hours earlier. The caretaker was very helpful and replied quickly. Been able to go on holiday and take a dog with us is a real bonus. We would highly recommend this cottage to everyone.

Post Box Cottage, Peranwell Station, Cornwall

This was our third visit to post box cottage in the village of Peranwell Station. The property is well laid out with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, sitting room, dining room and a well equipped kitchen. There are plenty of games in variouse cupboards and some dvd's. It would be advisable to take your own dvd's if the weather is poor. Post box cottage is well placed to visit South, West and North coasts of Cornwall,upto Padstow and St Austell, or to Falmouth, lands End and St Ives. Plenty of good walks nearby for families with or without dogs. Dog friendly beaches not too distant. Good pub nearby.

Lovely cottage in a great location

We really liked Post Box Cottage - quirky layout with lots of space and everything we needed. Good for our two dogs too! Really cosy and warm with masses of (very) hot water. Also very good WiFi - important for us. Only one complaint - the quality of the bedding, particularly the pillows, was pretty poor. They were extremely hard and uncomfortable. Lovely duvet in the master bedroom but not so good in the twin. Everything else was great.

My Review

I could not contact the housekeeper on her mobile when I could not find the key to front door. It was 2 - 3 hours later that she telephoned and told me that she had never had a problem before. The ground floor (living room and dining room) smelt strongly of damp which was unpleasant. I bought some scented candles to disguise this. I suggest that these should be available to other paying guests.

From the Owner:
Our housekeeper was visiting a relative at the time of the call (7.40pm) and was not aware that her phone had no signal in her handbag. Just over 15 minutes after your initial voice message she received a text message from you to say that you had found the key. despite this text message she still made contact with you later in the evening to make sure you were in safely and, on enquiring why you had difficulty finding the key, it was ascertained that you had misread the detailed instructions that had been sent to you from Cornwalls Cottages. It was a shame you ended the call so abruptly. NB Cornwalls Cottages also have an emergency number. Regarding your mention of a damp smell, we are certainly not aware of it and have not had any other comments such as this, we will certainly NOT be supplying or suggesting to guests that they use or bring scented candles with them, firstly as this would be very irresponsible with the potential danger and secondly we are not in the habit of masking problems that are brought to our attention, instead we would rather deal with them immediately as they may arise and as yet , we have not found a similar problem to the one that you describe. We are glad that you and your two dogs could come and enjoy the cottage and the surrounding countryside and it is a shame it rained so much during your stay.

First class accomodation

There is no doubt that Post Box cottage is a charming house near the village of Perranwell. which has a useful shop and a village pub. The cottage is probably the best equipped that I have ever used, and I have had a few during the past ten years. I would recommend this property to others, but there are two things that I would like to point out. The four steps that lead to the kitchen might be difficult for people with disabilities and the noise from passing large agricultural vehicles and lorries might be disturbing to some people but on the whole this is a very nice and delightful holiday cottage.

Post Box Cottage

The cottage is very pretty and I booked it as it was in perranwell station ,my daughter had suggested this area as a place I could move to. It was very comfortable though some of the kitchen equipment / utensils could have been cleaner. I personally found the traffic a very big problem . The speed which both cars and tractors go up the road causes a lot of noise. The tractors in particular are very fast and noisy and these start early in the morning which woke me up. I have lived in villages in which tractors regularly used the road I lived in but we we had a garden to the front which I imagine absorbed some of the noise. I currently live in a lane with no through traffic so I have become used to a very quite location. I am may Irecommend the cottage to others but would have to advise them about the traffic.

The cottage was nice, warm and cosy and in a very good location, in fact the village itself was very friendly with good amenities. The kitchen was well equipped but looking a bit tired. Wifi was brilliant. Downstairs we found it quite spacious but upstairs we thought that the twin bedroom was quite small. The bathroom and shower room were very good.

A lovely peaceful stay at a charming cottage. It was well maintained and very cosy. A nice place to return to after a hard days walking. Far enough away from anywhere busy but close enough to main roads. The local pub is within a 15 minute walk. Take a torch as there is no footpath. The pub is dog friendly and the staff are friendly too.

A very happy week at Post Box Cottage, Perranwell

We used the cottage for our exploration of south-west Cornwall. We particularly enjoyed the small villages, including Fowey, St. Mawes, Port Isaacs and then going to the Lost Gardens of Heligen was amazing and Mevagissey. All of these locations were within a 1 1/2 hour drive of the cottage. We also travelled to Falmouth by train with free parking at Perranwell station. We must add that the Royal Oak in the village was a very friendly place to visit and we had a meal there too - it is essential to book. In fact everyone we encountered in the village was very friendly.

Perfect Holiday Location

I would like to recommend the Post Box Cottage. The location of the cottage is perfrect, if you are going to Landsend of the Eden Project, there is nothing that is more than 50 mins drive away. The local towns are Falmouth and Truro, they are both delightful towns with lots to expore. The cottage is very well equiped, with everything you could need, the only way to describe it would be "home from home" the garden is relaxing to sit in. We spent a few evenings sat with a glass of wine relaxing, listening to the birds, chatiing, we evening had a friendly cay visit us. And the personal touch, of a welcomeing bunch of flowers and a delious pack of fresh scones with cream a jam, was a lovely surprise after a long drive.

We had a lovely, peaceful stay at Post Box Cottage, the cream tea on arrival was very nice, the cottage was comfortable, clean & kitchen very well-equipped, high chair & travel cot greatly appreciated, as were the passing tractors! We enjoyed evenings sitting out in the garden, plenty of games & puzzles & books to keep the kids occupied, caught the train into Falmouth for a car-free day out, and would definitely recommend Maenporth beach & Trebah gardens.

Fantastic place to spend our holiday. Everything that we required was included in the cottage. We had one small issue with outside chairs, where previous people had not reported the damage they had caused, we contacted the caretaker and problem was resolved within an hour or so. We were very impressed with the level of care. Cottage was central to our holiday destinations and very peaceful.

A few days of pure bliss.

Post Box Cottage is a lovely, quiet property providing home from home comforts. I didn't notice the amount of steps throughout the cottage the first time we stayed but on this occasion, having injured my back they were very noticeable. It was very useful having a downstairs shower and toilet, the carpeted stairs were ok with secure bannisters for ease of going up and down stairs, the biggest issue were the steps into the kitchen, they were quite slippery and would benefit from having some treads. The secluded garden particularly makes it attractive for dog owners. The location is ideal for visiting surrounding attractions. Overall the cottage is a 'haven' providing a few relaxing days away.

To start up, this was one of the best accommodations in all our holidays. And now in detail: although we did not personally meet the hosts, we experienced a very warm welcome with fresh flowers, cornish cream tea in the fridge and not to forget, a perfectly clean and tidy, nicely furnished cottage. It is embedded in a very green residential area, but not too close to other houses, so you do enjoy privacy. There is a cute little front garden with chairs and table to enjoy the sunshine. Although the room-layout appears a little unplanned at first, to us this is what makes the character of the Cottage. It is that homely, cosy feeling you get there. The kitchen was better equipped than mine at home! There are two bathrooms, which again gives you privacy if needed. The living room is lined with deep, soft carpet, there are books and brochures and WiFI is available for free. We would definately recommend this cottage to anyone, who enjoys comfort, a little bit of luxury, peace and quiet and the typical english cottage feeling. Frank & Kirsten from Germany

Really good Cottage

Great property at a great price. Lovely inside and very cosy thanks to the central heating as it was quite a cold breeze blowing.. Everything worked and very well equipped. Very good location for getting around to places like Lands End, Penzance and many others. When we arrive everything was ready very clean and tidy. Garden was secure for our dog Alfie to enjoy exploring it and we were happy in the knowledge that he was safe. Thanks to all concerned for helping to make it a really good holiday.

Lovely cottage in a lovely part of Cornwall - easy to reach a lot of areas

Great cottage, nice and large, well equipped and in a great location to get to Falmouth, Truro, Redruth and even Newquay or Lands End. Very handy having 2 showers, and the downstairs is nice n warm due to the boiler. Lovely welcoming cream tea. Pubs that have been recommended by others are nice enough if you like mostly fish based menus. The food was good, but a little pricey for some. Local pub in Perranwell is really welcoming, but quite small. Train to Falmouth was excellent price and is easier than trying to drive down and park. Would recommend train to Falmouth Docks and do Pendennis castle. Not been to a castle that allows kids to be so hands on before. Loads of leaflets in the drawers in the sitting room, and some useful maps too to help you find other places. Also loads of books to read, some games and jigsaws there too.

Wonderful relaxing stay

The location of the cottage was absolutely perfect. It had everything we needed including a secure garden for our little terrier. Unfortunately though he does not like tractors and there were quite a few going by each day which upset him but that's his problem and not the cottage! The pub in the village is delightful and has lovely food too. The staff and locals are very welcoming. We were able to visit everywhere we wanted to as it was all within an hours drive. The two bathrooms were definitely handy and the sitting room was a good size to relax in although a little dark at one end. All in all we had a fantastic time and we would like to return in the future.

Post Box Cottage is a very comfortable place to stay and easy to settle in on arrival. Location is very good for north & south coasts and main towns in west Cornwall, also not too far for east and north Cornwall.

Post Box Cottage

Excellent location. The use of the Fal Mussel card gave great value access to river cruises, ferries and the train between Falmouth and Truro - the station is 3 mins away and parking is free - although the car park is small, we had no problems. The cottage had everything we could require - it was quiet and secluded but had good access to main routes and was close to many interesting gardens (Trelissick is a very short drive away). The caretaker was most helpful when we had a problem (of our own making - nothing to do with the cottage!)

A wonderful week's stay with every comfort catered for

We were so at ease and relaxed in this beautiful cottage, we hardly wanted to come home ! The kitchen was amazingly well equipped; the cottage was immaculate, everything we needed was there. The location worked really well for us. The garden was a beautiful resource too, and there was so much space in the cottage and plenty of storage everywhere so it was effortless to live there, which is not always the case with some cottages. We would definitely go again !

A home from home

This is a lovely comfortable cottage which feels like a home from home. You will find the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped for a rental property and there is plenty of room for a party of five. We have been going there for 8+ years either as a couple or with the family and highly recommend it. It is also ideally situated for exploring south west Cornwall.

Lovely place to stay, would recommend to others, personally I wouldn't go again as I would be looking for somewhere that wasn't such a long drive as I have a small child, but would recommend it to folk with older kids who were more use to travelling.

Fantastic

This was our first stay at Post Box Cottage and definately wont be our last. The cottage was clean,comfy and the location was perfect. Little touches like the cream teas on arrival and fresh flowers in the living room created that extra personal touch. Everything we needed was provided - we couldn't have asked for more. The garden was perfect for our dog - totally safe and secure. We would definately book again. The Cooke Family

A week in Cornwall

Our stay at Post Box Cottage was great. The cottage was spacious and clean and ideally suited to our needs. Having WiFi was an essential with teenagers and having two bathrooms was a bonus. After a long journey, finding cream teas waiting for us was heaven and the fresh flowers very much appreciated. The position of the property was ideal for easy access to all areas of Cornwall and it's quiet and secluded situation a welcome respite at the end of busy days out. We would certainly not hesitate in renting this property if we visit Cornwall again.

SPACIOUS AND WELL EQUIPED COTTAGE IN A NICE RURAL VILLAGE SETTING

We stayed at the Post Box Cottage in Perranwell during the month of March when the daffodils were all around us in the fields,hedgerows and gardens of Perranwell . Its a short trip from the cottage to Truro and Falmouth either by car or from the village train station. We used the train once to go to Falmouth, we took the car from the cottage its quite a long walk and used the free car park at the station. First night we eat at the village pub ROYAL OAK, very nice food and popular as the pub was full that Saturday night. The King Harry Ferry will take you to the Roseland Peninsula. We visited the castle and village of St Mawes and the church and its grounds at St Just. Heading further west you have The Lizard, Gwennap Pit. St Michaels Mount, Penzance, Mousehole, Minack Theatre, Lands End and St Ives, for the younger ones Flambards near Helston and Seal sanctuary at Gweek (little expensive) maybe of interest. Hayle Towans with its miles of white sandy beaches and dunes makes for a nice day out if the weather is favourable. Get a Pasty from Philps at the quay in Hayle and take it to the beach for lunch. We would also recommend THE PANDORA INN a short drive away at RESTRONGUET, good food, nice pub, great setting especially on a nice day. Those interested, in the pub wall is a Post Box painted gold. One of those celebrating a 2012 Olympic Gold medallist. This one is for the sailing multi gold medallist Ben Ainslie. The Post Box cottage was great. Very spacious and had everything you would need. Fully fitted kitchen, two toilets, shower and bath in separate rooms, free wifi, bicycles you could use are in the garage which you could also use for your car if asked in advance. We didn't use the garage, we were happy at parking the car on the road in front of the cottage where we had no problems.You are in farm land country so expect farm vehicles to pass by regularly. One very minor issue we had with our stay was the spotlights in the ceiling in the kitchen. We had a number blow and shatter. We don't know the reason for this but can be a little scary. We were using the bathroom preparing for bed when one blew, another blew while we were out, we saw the remains on the floor before walking on it and the first my wife was alone in the cottage watching TV which spooked her. However, we enjoyed the stay at The Post Box cottage and would be more than happy to make a return in the future.

Family holiday in Cornwall

A lovely well equipped cottage. If you like peace and tranquillity, then this is the cottage for you. Extremely well equipped cottage and very comfortable for a family to stay. The little garden with the table and chairs was well used and not overlooked by anybody. Would definitely recommend staying at this cottage. My daughter and her boyfriend came with us and my grandson and we all had plenty of space. Will definitely return again.

Our stay at the Post Office Cottage

Post Office Cottage is a lovely cottage. It is spacious and it's layout provides privacy for everyone. It's a quite place with a lovely, colourful garden. We enjoyed a number of warm evenings just soaking up the sun on the patio. It's location is fantastic in many ways. It is in walking distance to the local village, the pub and the train station. It is also conveniently located to all the beaches, Falmouth, Truro and many of the gardens. Journeys to a large number of attractions and sights are within an hour. The cottage is well kept and we were made welcome with a nice bunch of flowers and a plate of scones and cream - a very nice touch indeed. We can certainly recommend the cottage and already planning our next stay.

'A secret haven'

First impressions, a lovely, clean, fresh and spacious cottage in a beautiful village. We have two small dogs and the secure garden was one of the main reasons for booking the cottage. The garden was perfect and so were the various walks surrounding the cottage. The smell of fresh flowers and the delight of the cream tea further enhanced the pleasure of our arrival at the cottage. Everything was available and there really were home from home comforts. By everything I mean things like cling film, foil, sewing kit, washing up products etc. Basically all the little things that often forgotten. The caretaker was one phone call away and very prompt to respond to my request. The additional information of local attractions and facilities were very useful, as was the reviews written by people in the visitor books.

Post Box Cottage - Early April 2014

Excellent all round and great value for money. Cream tea waiting for us on arrival was a lovely touch. Ideal location for walking the dog (if you don't mind a few hills:-)). Truro and Falmouth just 10 mins away in the car or you could take the train which was surprisingly cheap... The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped with a lot of little touches and more than enough space for four and a dog. We will certainly be looking to book early for next year.

Post Box Cottage

The cottage overall was good. Adverse weather conditions did not help with the draughts throughout but especially through the patio doors - thus taking a long time to heat the rooms.It did take a few days to warm the place through. It had everything we needed especially in the kitchen, as we were cooking a Christmas lunch. There was, however a lack of information on the recycling of rubbish (something we are used to doing) as there is obviously a system discovered when we found bags in the garage. We did enjoy our stay..................
