The eighteen hole Porthpean Golf Course is built around the cottage and the club house is a short walk away where the golf is exceedingly reasonably priced and you can also enjoy a meal, coffee or drink! The Eden Project is just to the east of St Austell, the Lost Gardens of Heligan a short drive to the south west, the picturesque Roseland Peninsula with its quaint fishing villages is within half an hour's drive and Newquay's vibrant surfing lifestyle and golden beaches are a similar distance to the north.

Property Location


Porthpean has a marvellous central location, a mere 5 minutes from the centre of St Austell yet sitting on a south east facing hill with a splendid view of St Austell Bay. The eighteen hole golf course has a mix with the front nine in a parkland setting bordering Penrice Woods with distant rural views of Cornwall, the back nine has an unsurpassed view across the bay towards Fowey. Porthpean Beach is sandy and sheltered and is a safe place to swim, paddle, explore rock pools or watch the nesting birds on the cliff.

Less than a five minute drive away is the pretty harbour of Charlestown which offers plenty of places to get food and drink, a sweet shop, a couple of galleries and a Ship Wreck museum. It can also be reached by means of the coastal footpath from Porthpean. It is an excellent village to visit for a relaxed pub meal whilst enjoying views over the harbour and out to sea. There is also a small beach.

Pentewan (just north of Mevagissey) has an industrial past that is still evident in the village today. It was once a busy harbour built by a local mine owner for shipping china clay. Inland is the Pentewan Valley Trail which is 4km of woodland and riverside walking following an old gauge railway to the village of London Apprentice. The village also has a small, friendly pub with tables on the old harbour side. There is a wonderful sandy, beach which is ideal for families.

The town of Mevagissey is just a 15 minute drive away. Mevagissey is a wonderful little Cornish fishing village in South East Cornwall. The tiny seaside village is packed with old Cornish cottages complete with narrow alleyways leading to converted fish cellars offering gift shops, galleries, pubs and cafes. Once a major Pilchard port, now the harbour boasts a smaller fleet, many of which provide sea tours, or boat trips to Fowey situated further up the South coast. The harbour provides an ideal back drop for a fish and chips supper, followed by a stroll through the town at dusk.

he Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project are within an easy drive and so this is an excellent location for the keen gardener. Nearby Gorran Haven offers an alternative day out. You can continue south along the coast down to Caerhays Castle and Porthluney Cove. Cliff walks in all directions along the coast offer spectacular views out across the St Austell Bay with the coastal path only a few minutes walk from the cottage.

St Austell was once the major producer of the world's 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 its products across the Tamar River to England, so you may just find where your favourite brew is made.

Beautiful view over the bay

My mother and I recently stayed here for a week and loved the location. The view over St Austell Bay from the sitting room and master bedroom is stunning, with the coastal paths being just a short distance away. The property itself was clean and comfortable, with a nice kitchen and two separate bathrooms.

April 2019

From the minute you walk through the door you can tell you're going to have a great stay at the Tregolfva. From the private back garden, which is perfect for dog owners, to the view from the French doors over the golf course and St Austell bay the cottage was just perfect. We found the cottage to be very well maintained with clean spacious rooms, comfortable seats and beds, two spacious bathrooms, modern well equipped kitchen, private off road parking bay. The location couldn't be any better for us with only a short walk to Charlestown harbour using the coastal path, where we made full use of the restaurant's and bars, and only a short drive to St Austell. Only problem we found was finding access point to cottage and car park, the arrow on sign does not point through the gate on bend which puts a doubt in your mind as to whether the gate is private access to golf course only because cottages are not visible from road.

A perfect family holiday

A perfect first family holiday for my partner and I with our baby. The cottage had everything we needed and was in a great location, close to all the places we wanted to visit. The views from the cottage were amazing and we enjoyed watching the boats come and go. Would certainly recommend this cottage!

We had a wonderful stay at Tregolfva. The view was stunning and the cottage clean and comfortable

We stayed at the cottage w/b 14th July 2018. The view is stunning. How often could you say you could see the sea whilst sitting on the sofa. Thoroughly enjoyed eating breakfast at the bench taking in the lovely view. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. Porthpean beach is lovely but be prepared for a steep walk back. Easy distance from Eden project, Lost gardens of Heligan and Poldark Tin mine where we enjoyed are really interesting tour of the mine. Was visited regularly by the local grey cat who likes to explore inside if given the chance.

Half term break

We stayed at Tregolfva with our 16 year old daughter and her friend. The dog came too and there was plenty of space for all of us. The views from this property are fantastic, and change dramatically every time you look out of the window. The cottage was warm and cosy, comfy beds and there was everything we needed as far as utensils in the kitchen. The only negative point really was we found it difficult to watch television due to the reception through the set top aerial which was intermittent and we had to keep moving the aerial to get a barely watchable picture. Location wise the cottage was perfect for us to visit the places we had planned to, plus visit many of the lovely beaches nearby. We all really enjoyed our stay in Cornwall.

A resume of our visit.

Being a golfer the location and views from the cottage are superb, seeing the dawn rise over Carlyon Bay was beautiful. The place may not suit non golfers as it requires a car to get you around, but it is only a short way from Supermarkets and good restaurants in Charlestown. The cottage has all the amenities you require mostly good quality fittings and furniture however some of the glass panes in the front and back doors are blown and need replacing. All crockery and utensils were fine, the cooker and hob was adequate for our needs plenty of hot water on demand and the heating was good when required. All in all we had a very pleasant week and would repeat the visit in the future.

modern well equiped cottage, superb location being a short distance from Charlestown harbour and a few miles from the Eden project & the lost gardens of Heligan.

A cottage with stunning views

We have just returned from a fabulous week at the cottage. The weather wasn't the sunniest or the warmest but it stayed dry. The sea view from the cottage is incredible and you cannot get tired of it. There is a picnic table so we often sat and ate breakfast outside taking in the view. The cottage was very well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery and a good selection of kitchen utensils and felt warm and cosy. The location was quiet and rural but only a short drive to many attractions such as the Eden Project, Heligan, Fowey, Megavissey and the local beach was our favourite of the many we visited. All the family thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

Tregolfa cottage

We stayed for 3 nights 4 days. Fantastic location with views over Charlestown and the bay. At the edge of the golf course although they didn't interfere at all. Facilities good heating fine except no useful instructions and it was on a timer and was hot sometimes and cold others. Took us a while to work it out. No instructions for the Tv microwave etc. Can be irritating. Access to the cottages is at the rear and VERY dark. Owner needs to install a motion sensor light. My mobility is not good and I was afraid I would slip. We definitely needed our torches! Hiccup with the booking but resolved quickly and owner reimbursed part of the payment as apology. No problem-but it did seem to be because of their booking process so needs to be updated by the owner. Early season glitch I think. Access to property not obvious. The signs are quite faded and hidden by greenery. The entrance also seems to be the entrance to the golf course maintenance area. We went in and came out again at first because we thought we had gone the wrong way. But need to go past all the golf tractors etc and turn right down the path. But a very nice stay all in all.

A real gem with stunning views

This is a wonderful property set right on the golf course and overlooking St Austell Bay, all we could hear were the waves, the birds and golf balls being hit. The property was originally a barn which has been converted into 6 holiday cottages. It is open plan downstairs with all the necessary white goods, including iron & ironing board, dishwasher, washing machine, lots of cooking equipment and crockery all good quality, condition and spotlessly clean. (Oven did get bit hot on the outside so watch little ones) Good quality furniture, oak dining table and chairs, 2 Comfy sofas, Radio, TV, DVD. A selection of books a few DVD's to watch and a number of children's toys are also available. Downstairs there is also a large modern bathroom, lots of hot water with an over bath shower, very powerful but a little unstable. (The owners have assured me they will look at this) Upstairs 2 good sized bedrooms, and a w/c/shower room with slightly older but perfectly good electric shower. Master bedroom is really big, has fantastic views over the bay and golf course, two 3ft beds, zipped together to made an enormous, really comfortable bed, dressing table, wardrobes with hangers, hair dryer all you could need. Second bedroom not so large and no views but again had 2 3ft beds which could be used as singles or large double, wardrobe table and chair. All bedding, towels, tea towels and washing up clothes provided. Downstairs the French doors lead outside to a small patio area with a new large, sturdy, round bench table, seats 8 great for eating an alfresco breakfast, then a lawn overlooking the stunning bay & golf course, there are no fences marking the boundaries it's all open, however there is a secure paved courtyard at the back of the property should you need it, with a small wooden table, couple of chairs in an outside storage unit which also housed some beach toys, but no views here!! Porthpean Beach is a good walk away, all downhill thou, but is a tough walk back uphill, so the car park 150m from beach is great at AGBP3 for the day. the beach seems to be popular for water sports, with sailing club and equipment to hire from kiosk, also has toilets and cafA(C) but sadly no dogs on beach during summer months and beach quite small when tide is in. Overall the property was lovely and had everything we needed, close to amenities and tourist destinations, but felt like it was miles from anywhere. We did go out of season at the end of September, so it was especially quiet with no neighbours for a couple of days, think it would feel quite different had all the properties been in use. Finally a bottle of milk in the fridge and a packet of biscuits on the side were a lovely touch after a long journey.

Our first time in Cornwall and this cottage was perfect. The view of the sea from outside the patio doors was incredible. Nice quiet location, good for walks and just relaxing at the cottage. We brought a small dog and had no problems in cottage no.1 as this one was fenced off. Would definitely recommend this cottage for anyone visiting Cornwall.

Could not ask for a better location for a family retreat. Views from the cottage are stunning and the local beach is only a 10 minute walk although I must say the lane is steep. Tregolfa is a ideal base to cover most of south Cornwall and is very peaceful, great to return to after a busy day out and about. I highly recommend it.

June in Cornwall

This is a perfect spot or exploring the county and is ideally located for the coast - Mevagissey, Fowey, Polperro, Looe etc. and also within easy reach of Eden, Heligan and many National Trust properties. Charlestown is a lovely spot to eat and drink and just a short drive or walk along the coast path, (though there are plenty of steps to contend with. The cottage faces the sea with acres of golf course to walk around if you wish. It is beautifully decorated and furnished and has everything you might wish for.You'll never find a holiday home with a better view or in a more peaceful situation! It is ideal!

Excellent property.

Don't want to "big-up" this cottage too much as it may not be available for when we want to go again. The cottage and its owners provided everything we could have wanted. The cottage was very clean and in excellent condition. To dispel any fears about the shower, I am over 6ft and well built and had no problems with size of shower cubicle. Supermarkets within 5 minutes drive and beach within 5 minutes walk (albeit not dog friendly during summer), then there was the golf! Excellent course offering discounted golf if staying at the cottages and even throw in a free trolley if you ask. Set of old clubs in the cottage if you don't take your own and you fancy a game. The cottage is an excellent base for those who wish to explore Cornwall and surrounding areas, the walks and the views are excellent. We will definitely be returning.

Clean, comfortable and well-located

We had a lovely, quiet, relaxing week at Tregolva. The views over the 17th green and St Austell Bay are stunning. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well appointed, and the main bedroom is spacious. The cottage is within a short drive of the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Lanhydrock (NT) - also a good ASDA only 5 minutes away. We found the owners to be helpful and accommodating when we had to make some last minute changes to our booking. The entrance drive is not particularly well signed and car parking is adequate for one car. The Golf Club was welcoming to visitors and the lounge bar has great views over the bay. Porthpean Beach was disappointing.

A welcome first holiday of 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Tregolfva The cottage is clean, well-equipped and comfortable. Even the golf was entertaining! Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings, although not many of the other cottages were occupied so it might get a bit noisier when full up. Very close to the South West coast path and, of course, many pretty coves and beaches. It was nice to watch the birds of prey hunting too. All in all, a very good base for exploring the area.

Tregolfa was a pleasant cottage with most amenities. The view was superb although no comfortable chairs available to enjoy the sun. Shower was exceptionally small and as a disabled person very difficult for me to get into. Bath also small and disappointing. Washing machine did not have drying facility and no other provision made elsewhere so not very suitable especially for a family. We enjoyed our stay but would need better washing and showering facilities should we choose to use it again.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your comments. The idea of a combined washer dryer is one we will consider. In the meantime there is a folding clothes drying rack and space for it by a radiator in the bathroom if the weather does not favour drying clothes outside. If you have specific requirements you may wish to contact the friendly and knowledgeable staff at Cornwalls Cottages, at the time of making a booking, as they are always willing to help to match your needs with the most suitable cottage. I hope that you decide to visit Cornwall, if not this cottage, again.

Our wonderful week at Tregolfva

I think that my scoring speaks for it's self !!!!!! This was a much needed holiday that my husband and I needed; but even more so by our daughter who has endured a very stressful time recently. Tregolfa has a really wonderful view over St Austell bay, and what nice people in this area, nothing was too much trouble. Be warned !!!!! We will, at some stage return. Thank you so much. Marion Cuming.

From the Owner:
I am so pleased that you clearly had such a wonderful time at Tregolfva and in Cornwall.

Excellent location especially for golfers with amazing views from Tregolfa. Everything you need for a relaxing break , walks and a good selection of places to eat. The owner was extremely helpful.

From the Owner:
Overlooking the 17th green of Porthpean golf course, Tregolfva is certainly ideally located for golfers. I do hope you have the opportunity to return and thank you for taking the time to post a review.

Worth staying here just for the view

This cottage is in a stunning position, it sleeps 4 people in reasonable comfort, the fittings and fixtures are adequate if a little "tired", It is an ideal position for exploring the coastline on foot or by car, the North coast is only 40 minutes drive away. Not 'luxury' by any stretch of the imagination and if you want to sit outside take your own chairs or perch on a rickety picnic table. Overall, a great venue that just needs some TLC to make it perfect.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your review. Given your very specific feedback we shall be replacing the picnic table as soon as possible. Please do visit again.

Warm barn with fabulous views

This is a lovely barn in a great location that had all we needed for a restful break. As dogs are welcome here(Thankyou) It is worth noting the restrictions for dogs in high season on the local beach, we were lucky to have stayed before Easter so had no problems but this would be really dissappointing perhaps in high season.

From the Owner:
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am delighted that the cottage had all you needed for a restful break. Please do visit again. I would recommend the Cornwall Beach Guide website as a source of useful information about the beaches: http://www.cornwall-beaches.co.uk/south-east/porthpean.htm

Great cottage all the facilites that we needed great for the dog.

We had a lovely stay in the cottage, it had everything that we needed. The garden was enclosed so that our dog was safe and there were lots of walks that we could do with him straight from the front door of the cottage. The kitchen was well stocked with things to cook with so that we could eat in. The location was fantastic and very picturesque. It was very good value for money. Well located with lots of things which were not to far away.

Relaxing break in great location

We had a truly relaxing 7 day break in this well equipped cottage that "comes with" the most fantastic uninterrupted views across St Austell Bay. The sun rises and moon rises were particularly impressive. The location takes some beating being both quiet and within walking distance of a relatively secluded beach (though access to it is somewhat steep), but also close to two supermarkets and main roads to the rest of Cornwall. Although the cottage is on a golf course we did not find the activities of the golfers or ground staff in any way intrusive and were quite content to eat on its patio overlooking the 17th green. It was good to have available instruction manuals on nearly all the appliances in the cottage as well as information on local attractions and places of interest. We would have no hesitation in returning in the near future.

From the Owner:
Thank you for taking the time to complete such a comprehensive review. We are pleased that you found your stay relaxing and that the weather enabled you to enjoy the wonderful views whilst dining on the patio. Please do visit again.

Perfect little cottage, in perfect location with perfect views!

We had a wonderful home-from-home stay in Tregolfva from the moment we got there. It was lovely and clean, well equipped and the information files were of fantastic use. It is a perfect location for getting around, the lovely Porthpean beach just a few mins away, then with the added bonus of shops and a supermarket only 5 mins away! To top it all off with the most beautiful views in a beautiful setting! Tregolfva made us feel very welcome! Thank you :0)

Amazing views

Really is a fantastic location with the best sea views that we saw in cornwall, hands down. Not suitable for anyone wanting privacy though, with the shared front lawn and golf course.

From the Owner:
Thank you for your review. The sea views are certainly outstanding. Please do visit again.

One week stay.

We had a wonderful week stay at the Tegolfvan cottages. The views from the back door were stunning and the beach was not far away although was steep on way back but my pregnant wife and two year old did manage the walk. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived and we found it to be most comfortable. I would highly recommend the cottage and would stay again.

Excellent, well equipped cottage in a quiet location with wonderful sea views

A nice quite location, the property is very well equipped, very spacious even for four adults. Beds very comfortable as were the settees. The kitchen had everything that you would need microwave, hob, oven, dishwasher, washing machine even an ironing board that pulls out from a drawer. The location whilst being in a quiet location was very close to all the local shops and services. A 10 minute walk to the beach. 20 minutes walk from the historic port of Charlestown. Also the other 5 cottages were mainly occupied by the owners who all were extremely friendly and made us all feel very welcome. We loved it :-)

From the Owner:
We are delighted that you clearly thoroughly enjoyed your stay at Tregolfva. Please do visit again - those wonderful sea views will be waiting for you! This month the cottage is being fully redecorated to further improve the accommodation.

Stunning views but shabby dirty cottage!!!

The downstairs bathroom and sink also the upstairs toilet and sink and freezer drawers were not cleaned properly and had grime and hairs everywhere. The settees and bedding had to be brushed with a lint roller due to pet hair.Inside the cooker was dirty. The living/dining room was very small. The hallway/stairs were in need of redecoration. The only good points were the bedroom sizes and stunning views.(best appreciated with the bedroom windows open - the windows were very dirty everywhere).

From the Owner:
As we only started renting out Tregolfva as a permanent holiday let in March 2014 we particularly welcome your feedback. We are keen to do our utmost to ensure our guests are happy which is why I arranged for our housekeeper to visit the cottage within an hour of you telephoning me to raise your concerns on the Saturday that you arrived at the cottage. During our telephone conversation it became apparent that you had mistaken the description that Tregolfva was a "new holiday cottage" to mean that the cottage was "newly built" and hence two months later you had expected it to be in a pristine and unused condition. Our housekeeper addressed your concerns regarding the cleaning there and then. We have since arranged for the cooker and extractor hood to be professionally cleaned and we will ensure that this is regularly undertaken. Having recently replaced the sofas, downstairs carpets and patio doors, we are also planning to redecorate the interior of the cottage in the coming months.
