A dedicated BBQ area and outside taps, sink and hosepipes make cleaning wellies (and dogs) a breeze.
Out and About
Equidistant between Bude and Launceston, The Cottage is ideally placed to enjoy a morning sea swim and watch the local surfers catch the waves before work, then head inland to one of the local market towns, browsing the antique shops and local food producers, or explore some of the many local attractions to entertain the kids (mum and dad too!). If outdoor activities is more your scene, pack a picnic and head for one the local coast paths or inland to the moors for breath taking views or cycle one of the man cycle paths or mountain bike facilities. The flat terrain of the Camel Trail leading from Wadebridge to Padstow is a particular favourite with families of all ages who stay at The Cottage. Trelash is also on the North Cornwall Trail.
Other close by attractions include The Tamar Otter Park, Trethorne Leisure Park, The Hidden Valley Discovery Park, Vintage steam railways, mystical castles at Tintagel and Launceston plus many more….. A comprehensive list of things to do, places to see and walks to enjoy are provided in an online cottage housebook and a printed copy at the cottage.
Winter Months and Out of Season Breaks
If you are looking to escape to the country in cooler months or Christmas and New Year The Cottage is just the perfect venue to embrace the relaxed Cornish lifestyle. Start your days with lazy mornings, hearty home cooked breakfasts and long days exploring the rugged North Cornwall coast or brisk moorland jaunts, then back to The Cottage where you can pick a well-thumbed book from the vintage glass dresser and hunker down by the inglenook fire with a steaming cup of chocolate whilst the kids fall into a deep slumber dreaming of what tomorrow will bring. End the day with a well-earned soak, sinking into a creamy layer of steaming bubbles in the Victorian claw foot bath tub, with a glass of champagne in hand, the perfect place to soothe tired limbs after long countryside stomps.
