Outside, the south facing garden is pleasantly planted with mature shrubs and flower border, it has plenty of seating and is great for children to play hide and seek! In addition, to the West of the garden is a large park with swings, etc. The 2'6”hedge provides the opportunity to watch your little ones playing while enjoying a glass of wine or a cup of tea sitting on the patio. There is parking to the front of the house.
Cornwall has something to offer everyone. Originally reliant on it's fishing and mining industry there is now a diverse range of sites and attractions for young and old, active and amblers! You can travel the length of the county in an hour, so whether you prefer the vibrant and arty St.Ives, peaceful fishing villages, tourist attractions of Land's End, St Michael's Mount and the activity parks, Eden Project or Lost Gardens of Heligan, or cultural sites of Minack Theatre at Porthcurno or the many travelling theatres, you are never far away. St Mabyn is ideally positioned to reach many of the beautiful beaches on North and South Coast of Cornwall. It is about 7 miles from the renowned north coast surfing beach of Polzeath, the sailing and waterski centres at Rock and the delightful fishing village of Port Isaac. Within 15 minutes you can be in Padstow with 7 beaches in close proximity.
They are Trevone Bay, Harlyn Bay, Mother Ivy's Bay, Boobies Bay, Constantine Bay, Treyarnon Bay and Porthcothan Bay, all of which offer a different coastal experience. Padstow also offers a great selection of shops and of course it is the foodie capital of Cornwall with all the Rick Stein restaurants, the Great British menu winner and Michelin star chef Paul Ainsworth and the great value, vibrant pizza and pasta restaurant Rojanos. A little further on is Watergate Bay, home of the Extreme Sports Academy and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant, with stunning views across the bay and fabulous food.
St. Mabyn is well placed to explore miles of remote untamed moorland and windswept rocky tors – just 10 minutes from the two highest peaks in Cornwall, Roughtor and Brown Willy. Take a walk up either and on a fine day you will see both North and South Cornish coasts.
The slopes of Roughtor house an important Bronze Age settlement and is the site of a Bronze Age village in the area.
Within 3 miles there are a handful of really good food pubs incl. St Kew Inn, St Tudy Inn and best of all the newly refurbished St Mabyn Inn is receiving great reviews for their food and fabulous welcoming atmosphere. It's about 200 metres from the cottage.
Surfing at Polzeath, wind surfing or children's swimming at Daymer Bay, sailing and waterskiing at Rock, cycling the Camel Trail or walking the coastal path is all within 15 minutes drive.
On the outskirts of the village is Pencarrow House. Open to the public and particularly dog friendly, Pencarrow has been the much-loved home of the Molesworth-St Aubyns for 500 years. Family photos, children's toys and pet dogs bring this Cornish mansion alive and allow you a glimpse of what it's like to live surrounded by so much history. It's a real family home, with magnificent gardens, tea shop and fruit sales in season. You can even let your dogs off a lead.
Golfers are well catered for with a handful of courses within a 20 minute drive, including the renowned links course, St.Enodoc, ranked 55th in the world and certainly one of the finest golf courses in the South West. Along with the demanding course, it has unrivalled estuary and sea views. Within walking distance of the cottage is St.Kew golf course, and Roserrow is a short drive towards the North coast.
