POLTOR COTTAGE (recently built in traditional Cornish stone) is a detached cottage set in tranquil rolling green countryside overlooking St Austell Bay and a mining World Heritage Site on which there is an historical engine house ruin. The pretty port of Fowey is nearby where the annual (Daphne du Maurier) Festival is held in May each year. Par, Carlyon, Charlestown beaches and other coves are also close by. The North Cornwall Atlantic coast is within easy reach. For golfers there are excellent 9 and 18 hole golf courses. For "green" botanical enthusiasts, Eden Project is approximately 4 miles distant and just the job for inclement weather under the domes and many other enjoyable landscaped gardens nearby are open to the public. The large Cornish undercover market is open at weekends and Wednesdays.

POLTOR COTTAGE, although in a peaceful rural setting, is easily accessible by car from the A390. It has a downstairs open plan layout of sitting room/sun/lounge/kitchen/diner - doors lead out to a large fairly sheltered patio area overlooking the garden, countryside, Austen engine house ruin and sea. There is a downstairs bedroom with twin linked 3' beds (Superking) and an ensuite shower room; also a utility room with outside access. Upstairs there is a bedroom with twin linked beds (king/2 singles) and bathroom with views over the sea and beautiful countryside. Double glazed throughout. ENCLOSED PARKING 1 possibly 2 cars.

The West Country region

Fowey, Bodmin Moor, Tywardreath are places well known to those who have read author Daphne du Maurier's books.

The south coastline boasts many coves, beaches and cliff walks but the north coastline is also easily accessible.

There are many good golf courses.

Boat trips and sailing (lessons) are all close by.

Cornwall is renowned for its mining heritage and landmarks can be seen around the countryside.

If you just want to chill out and relax there is the peace and tranquility of the countryside on the doorstep.

For the more adventurous there are many other places to see and activities to do if time permits.

Weather of course is unpredictable but there are undercover activities that can be done on wet days. April has a fairly good record of sunshine!
