Property Location


Withiel is situated about 5 miles from Wadebridge and 15 miles from both Newquay and Padstow. The Atlantic Coast of Cornwall offers some of the most picturesque and breathtaking scenery in the country with golden sandy beaches at 25 locations within 20 miles from Quince Cottage; these include Crantock, Fistral, Perranporth, Polzeath and Watergate Bay. Most of these are patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during the summer season. The coastal footpath delivers some stunning walks and incredible views through this dramatic section of coastline. Hustyns, the luxury spa and resort centre, is only 10 minutes away by car and offers day passes to the gym and swimming pool as well as a variety of beauty and spa treatments. There is also a first class restaurant. The golf courses of St Enodoc and Trevose are within easy reach.

These days Newquay's excellent surfing waters are the town's main industry, whereas it once used to be a major export port for the county's 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 is 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.

Neighbouring 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 and 3 miles outside of the town, is an Elizabethan manor house and garden with restricted winter opening times.

Wadebridge, once a market town, is now more widely known as being part of The Camel Trail, the cycle route out to Padstow from the depths of Bodmin Moor on the old tramway route. You can hire a bike at the start of the trail and cycle to Padstow, now famous for being home to Rick Stein's The Seafood Restaurant, amongst others which the celebrity chef owns in the town. From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Stein's empire in Padstow.

The Royal Cornwall Show ground at Wadebridge hosts the county show every June, come rain or shine, and is opened each year by a member of the Royal Family. Cornish farmers have had to diversify in recent years and so has the Show, but they have kept their traditional roots with steam engines being shown next to the shiny new high-tech tractors. It's not every day you get to see formation JCB digger dancing in the main ring. The National Trust have three properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas & Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell, famously built in a disused china clay pit.

Excellent Accomodation

An exceptionally spacious and comfortable stay at Quince cottage in December. the cottage was very deceptive and the bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable The property easily accommodated 6 people and the kitchen area was well equipped with every thing we needed to have our meals there. The lanes are very narrow if you're not used to that type of road but the area is very quiet but central to access all areas of Cornwall The PERFECT place to relax and would recommend this as a base for any holiday

From the Owner:
We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Quince. Thank you for commenting on the "well-equipped" kitchen area; we feel this is particularly important for guests who enjoy taking their meals in the cottage.

Great stay at Quince cottage

Cycled Camel Trail from start to finish, visited many beeches and had a great day at Lanhydreck National Trust House. Found the cottage very comfortable and in a good location for both south (Fowey) and north coast (Polzeath) of Cornwall. Courtyard also gave the children a play area and with the other cottages on site potential for interaction with other families.

Quince Cottage, Withiel - a perfect base for walking the Saints Way

Quince Cottage provided us with very clean and comfortable accommodation whilst on a walking holiday in Cornwall. Although the location felt quite remote, it's actually only a short drive from both Bodmin and Wadebridge (lanes are very narrow in places, though we are used to this so it wasn't a problem). Access to the beautiful coast of North Cornwall is good, with Padstow, Port Issac and Nequay all being in easy reach. Would recommend as a good base for walking the Saints Way, particularly if you have two cars available and plan to walk the trail over three days.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay in Quince Cottage; it is, indeed, well placed for accessing different parts of Cornwall. We were, however, somewhat disappointed by your rating of 4 for "Service" as we aim to do our best for our guests and so would genuinely welcome your feedback to let us know how we could improve this area. As a further note for readers of this review, the bathroom will be replaced in November 2018.

Lovely cottage in Cornwall

Lovely converted farm buildings in a peaceful setting. One of 7 cottages Quince cottage is very spacious and very comfortable. Three good sized bedrooms, the master bedroom had an ensuite bathroom. Well equiped kitchen with all home comforts including dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier. I had a very good deal as I made a late booking in June. Location was rural but a short distance to north and south coasts of Cornwall and the delightful beaches and fishing villages. Delightful I would definiely stay there again.

comfort, warmth and welcome

We found Quince Cottage a little treasure. It was clean, warm and felt very comfortable. There was everything one could need to make our stay just like a home from home. We would most certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a central location in Cornwall. A sat-nav is required to get there though!

Lovely comfortable cottage with everything you need .

What a lovely cottage , contained everything we needed for a very comfortable stay over Christmas including a perfect log fire ! Owners couldnA?t have been more helpful and kind preparing the cottage for us. The layout of the cottage was ideal , 3 good sized bedrooms that you could shut off from the kitchen / lounge area which is perfect in evenings if youA?ve got children in bed. The kitchen was recently refurbished and very well equipped . I donA?t normally like electric ovens but this one was brilliant ! Location is great for access to both coasts and some lovely beaches, plenty of places to visit nearby including Eden project , lanhydrock National trust, lost Gardens of Heligan to name a few. Be prepared for very narrow Cornish lanes though !! Would thoroughly recommend this cottage .

Picturesque Cornwall cottage

Tucked away down narrow green walled country lanes; Quince cottage is in a delightful horseshoe of terraced stone cottages surrounding a pretty little private green. All mod cons provided, including a barbecue and outside seating. A perfect place to hide away in the Cornish countryside, and a short distance from the coast and several of Cornwall's beautiful gardens, including the Eden Project. The owners were extremely helpful with initial directions, instructions and welcome goodies on our arrival. We would highly recommend a stay here.

Quince Cottage

Four of us stayed at Quince Cottage and had an excellent time. Cottage is delightful and quite well placed for seeing Cornwall. Please be aware of the very narrow roads....... not advisable when the 'Cornwall Show was on' thankfully at the end of our stay. A very enjoyable holiday, despite the sometimes unseasonable weather !

Relaxing and out of the way.

The cottage was very comfortable and the locals are very friendly. I had some problems with the country lanes as unnamed and difficult to navigate. The cottage itself is a little out of the way but has great facilities.

Lovely cottage with everything you need

The cottage was clean, tidy and had all the facilities we could have needed for a week away. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could need. The bedrooms were comfortable with a selection of bedding available. We chose tthe cottage for it's central location so we could travel to various areas in the Cornwall & Devon area which worked well for us - especially as everything in Cornwall is spread out! There were lots of leaflets for things to do & a file of information in the cottage which was really useful. The only downside to the cottage was the slight damp in the main bedroom & ensuite. The extract fan doesn't work that well so the bathroom floor gets damp after a shower & the bedding felt very slightly damp upon getting in it.

A modern, comfortable and best cottage in Cornwall

Excellent cottage. Kept extremely clean. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the owner via phone even though they were not in the cottage and asked to call them anytime if we need help. Rooms are comfortable and very well equipped, beautiful kitchen and living area. Most importantly the open fire in the living area was awesome. Woods were kept enough for fire. Supermarket is within 6-7 min drive distance. Would definitely recommend to everybody! It's a true sample of excellent hospitality. Thank you again to the owner for going just that little step extra for their guests!!!

Short last minute break with family.

A very clean, compact and comfortable barn conversion with those lovely thick walls and log fire. Quiet and sufficient space for six (or 5 and a dog in our case). Dog friendly - great! Located sufficiently far down narrow lanes to feel remote but close enough to the main roads to have easy access to the rest of Cornwall. Several pleasant river access areas for hours of play for the kids and dog within easy walking distance. Everything was laid on and well presented. Very warm. You know electric showers are a design disaster, requiring subtle control, but there is also a bath fed by an immersion heater. We appreciated all of the many little items that revealed how the owners cared about our stay. Reading one of the other reviews regarding the creaking ceiling - well this is slight and just adds to the character. It's not intrusive.

We had a really nice short break at Quince Cottage

Quince Cottage occupies part of one side of what was, presumably, a square farmyard. It's 100 yards or so off a little-used country lane, so it's beautifully quiet. The nights were cloudy while we were there, but I imagine you'd get a great view of the stars. It's nicely furnished, very comfortable, lovely and warm. We really enjoyed our stay.

From the Owner:
We're very pleased you enjoyed your stay in Quince Cottage. You are right - the view of the stars is great on clear nights!

Lovely time but BAD plumbing.

Unfortunately, we had to cut our stay at Quince Cottage short. Our dog was taken ill the day after we arrived and we had to return home. My sister and her husband stayed on and had a very enjoyable time at the cottage. The plumbing was very poor though as regards the shower in the bathroom, it kept alternately between scalding hot and cold without any warning and the wobbly toilet seat in the ensuite was never rectified. My sister tried the contact numbers to get in touch with the owners of the property but to no avail. Something seemed to be wrong with both email and telephone numbers. Unfortunately, she did not try to get in touch with Cornwalls Cottages for their help. Because there was only one complete bathroom, this property is only suitable for one couple and so I can`t recommend it for anyone but a family sharing, otherwise it is a lovely place to stay in Cornwall.

From the Owner:
We are pleased your sister and her husband enjoyed their stay at the cottage, but apologise for their experience with the plumbing. As I mentioned when I emailed our Quince Cottage Information File to you before your stay, as new owners of the cottage we are pleased to learn of any improvements we could easily make. My husband and I have just returned from a week's stay in the cottage; in order to test out the shower in the bathroom, we used it exclusively. Although we found it works well, we concluded that the dual controls can make successful use tricky. As a result, we shall now add usage instructions to our Information File. If all else fails, there is also an additional shower in the bathroom which runs from the bath taps. We are sorry, but somewhat surprised that your sister could not contact us, since at least one of us was at home throughout almost all of your stay. Both email and phone were working, but there were no messages on either. Thank you once again for your comments.

Relaxing out-of-the-way location

The cottage is tucked away in the country-side and is reasonably well equipped. The main bedroom is actually part of the neighbouring two-storey building which means there can be some noise from the floor above - a little disconcerting. Ventilation has obviously been a problem in the cottage and there is an air of mustiness but the property is clean, tidy and comfortable.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your comments. We are new owners (early 2015) and are gradually updating the cottage. Of particular note is the new heating system throughout the cottage, and the installation of Broadband.
