About Talehay Cottages

Talehay Cottages consist of 5 charming and tastefully furnished holiday cottages that sleep families from 2 to 5. Tucked away down a quiet lane and overlooking idyllic Cornish countryside, Talehay is a beautiful place to enjoy the peaceful rural location and a relaxing family break. A handy list of nursery gear is provided which even includes bottle sterilisers and food processors. There are 3 acres of gardens where children can play safely. The magnificent Cornish coastline with its secluded sandy coves and the beautiful Fowey estuary with its breathtaking views are only 3 miles away and the award wining Eden Project just a 20-minute drive.

Welcome to Talehay where the atmosphere is so very relaxed, the place extremely child-friendly and welcoming. It's safe, has lots of space, fresh air and as a parent you'll certainly move down a gear. The owners, Neil and Theresa thoughtfully provide a whole list of baby and toddler paraphernalia free of charge. Talehay Farmhouse is a grade 2 listed Cornish farmstead with its origins in the 17th century. No longer a working farm, Talehay is surrounded by and overlooks open countryside around a central courtyard of charming and tastefully furnished converted Cornish stone built cottages, providing quality self-catering holiday accommodation.

Holiday Cottages

At Talehay you will have a choice of five comfortable stone built cottages, which overlook open countryside in one of Cornwall's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Three of the cottages have one bedroom with room to sleep parents plus a baby or toddler - the Coach House and the Lodge are also on one level. The further two holiday cottages are 2 bedroom and can accommodate a family of 4 and 5. The converted cottages and farmhouse retain much character with feature oak beams and stone fireplaces and are tastefully furnished with all of the things you expect to find plus those little extras that make your stay so very special.

All the cottages are situated in spacious communal gardens with lawned areas, ideal for picnics and barbecues and safe for your children to play in. To the rear of the main house are a further three acres of enclosed meadows where families can walk their dogs or space for children to run off any spare energy and play ball games.

Baby and Toddler Equipment

A handy list of nursery gear is provided available on request free of charge including cots, high chairs, stair gates, bottle sterilisers, bottle warmers, changing mats, potties, food processors and bed bumpers for toddlers.

Neil & Theresa your hosts pride themselves on their welcome and hospitality. Guests are actively encouraged to exploit their host's local knowledge whether it is for a special restaurant, the nearest beach or what is best to visit further a field. There is no problem to small, and they will do their best to make your stay a memorable one.
