The West Country region
Cornwall has just about everything: dramatic cliffs and great surf. Glorious sandy beaches. Wild moorlands and tranquil woodlands. For foodies, there are numerous excellent restaurants, including Michelin Starred and Celebrity Chefs. Further afield, St Ives is a haven for art lovers.
The Eden Project is definitely worth a visit, which is internationally renowned for it's rare plant species and beautiful array of flowers.
The National Maritime Museum in Cornwall is full of interesting facts about classic British Voyages over the centuries and is a great family day out.
The beautiful 15th century bridge crosses the River Camel at the bustling market town of Wadebridge. Here you will find a good selection of independent shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. Wadebridge is at the centre of the Camel Trail, a delightful traffic-free trail for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers. The town holds an annual Folk Festival in August - the biggest in Cornwall, and the Royal Cornwall Show in June. For the children, there is a great play park, tennis courts and leisure centre for the more active, a thriving bowling club, and a cinema. There are spectacular firework shows over the river and town celebrating Guy Fawkes Night, the start of Christmas Late Night Shopping and New Years Eve. The village of Egloshayle is a pleasant 10 minute level walk from Wadebridge town and offers a delightful traditional inn and convenience store.

Very spacious and tastefully decorated, modern and well-equipped kitchen, cosy living room with wood-burner and plenty of wood! Nice garden and patio to enjoy meals or sit in the sun. Comfy beds and … More

"Superbly appointed, home from home"
Have now stayed at the Stable twice and been thoroughly impressed. Location is great, within easy reach of Wadebridge, and handy for Padstow and numerous beaches.
Cottage is really nicely appointed, good quality furnishings & fixtures, and is the sort of place you instantly feel at home in. We first stayed last summer, went back in Feb & have already booked again for the summer.
Rooms are all a good size, great to have an ensuite. Good WiFi included, log burner made the winter stay really cosy and plenty of space for up to 6 people.

"Lovely place to stay"
Just returned from a week at the Stable. Lovely cottage, decorated to a high standard and very modern & cosy throughout.
Beds are really comfortable and the en suite in the master bedroom is a nice touch.
There's a traditional pub (Earl of St Vincent) located behind the cottage (less than 10 yards away) we were there over new year and never heard any noise from the pub. They serve probably the nicest pint of Tribute I've had in Cornwall, although we ate there one lunch time and the food wasn't great, but still a nice quirky pub. You have to walk around the stable up the lane next to the church to the pub, but only takes 3 minutes ish to walk around.
The Stable is well located with Padstow 15 minutes away and the Newquay area around 25 minutes away.
Maria the owner is on hand should you need anything and offers a great personal touch to the holiday. We received a welcome pack, which contained all the essentials as well as some scones, jam, clotted cream, mince pies and a bottle of wine.
Will definitely return as will the rest of the family that came with us.
Would also definitely recommend Cornish Retreats.

"Superb in every respect"
We stayed at The Stables with two friends last week. I would describe us all as veteran, very fussy holidaymakers.
The house was absolutely spotless (including cushions, rugs etc - other cottage rental owners please note!), wonderfully warm and cosy and extremely well appointed. I have never stayed in a cottage that offers fluffy white dressing gowns!
Beds soooo comfy.
There was a very thoughtful welcome package and basics in the kitchen.
Quirky pub 3 minutes away.
The owner was unobtrusive but made it clear that she was available if we had any problems.
Honestly couldn't be faulted.
