The West Country region

Cornwall has something for everyone. Major attractions include the Eden Project, Land's End, St Michale's Mount and the bustling, vibrant resort of St Ives with it's branch of the Tate gallery or a selection of sleepy fishing villages. Children are well catered for with amusement parks, travelling theatres and of course the beaches. You can drive the length of the county in an hour, so it can all be done in a day trip.

Whether it is the wild of Bodmin Moor, walking the coast path or camel trail, visiting the Eden project and Lost Gardens of Heligan, or sightseeing the South coast, you are never more than 15 miles away from the cottage.


Tucked away at the end of a no through lane, Merlins at Trelill Cottages is a truly tranquil setting, with only the odd passing seagull to disturb the peace. The cottage offers an idyllic, get-away-from-it-all retreat. Trelill is a peaceful hamlet, with plenty of lovely walks across open countryside and is just 2 miles from the A39 Atlantic Highway, where there is a pub, convenience store, fish and chips, farm shop, cafe and restaurant. From the Atlantic Highway take your pick from any of the stunning beaches nearby. Polzeath, Rock and Daymer bay are 15 minutes away and picturesque Port Isaac, in the other direction is 4 miles away. Trebarwith Strand and Tintagel are a short drive North East. Padstow, with it's harbour, Rick Stein empire, excellent restaurants and shops, as well as a selection of beaches, is 10 miles to the West.

The bustling market town of Wadebridge has something for everyone and is a 10 minute drive away. The high street has a selection of individual shops and cafes, it's the place to buy your groceries, either from the independents or from a selection of large supermarkets.

"Idyllic cottage in peaceful location, fully modernised without losing it's charming character"

Set in a small village this charming cottage has all you could need for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Fully modernised but still has the character. Close to Padstow, Port Issac, Rock and Polzeath with a great pub a couple of miles down the road serving excellent food. A great location for exploring Cornwall and only a few miles from some stunning beaches and the beatuiful seascape vistas.
