|Further details outdoors|
Garden: The large enclosed garden has a BBQ and patio area, complete with patio furniture, for al fresco dining. The main garden faces west and is an ideal place to watch the sunset and is also ideal for children to explore and play games. Eaton Brook runs along the end of the garden but is fenced off for saftey.
Swimming Pool: The shared swimming pool is a short walk from Curlew Cottage, situated next to Pendennis (another of our properties). It is covered and heated (open April – October) and is ideal for children. There are parking and changing facilities. The pool is available at all times during your stay.
Parking: There is plenty of off road parking for at least 4 cars. Additional parking is also available.
If you'd like to try something different and have a guide to show you the area why not book a Nordic walking lesson.
Also on site we have an Olympic length indoor archery range which is used by the Commonwealth and Olympic teams for training. We can arrange for you to 'have a go' with a professional coach and all the equipment you will need, but don't worry the targets will be closer so you should be right on target.
The shared swimming pool is available April to October. It is covered and heated and you will have a key and can use it at any time during your stay.
The garden is private, completely enclosed and just for the use of guests staying at Curlew Cottage.
If you'd like to order your groceries online we'll take delivery and pack it all away for you at no extra charge.
All of the beds have the option of being doubles or twins. The maximum number of single beds is 8 but if you are looking for mainly double rooms the maximum number is 4.
Curlew Cottage also has use of the shared on-site indoor games room and large outdoor playing field.
