Beaches are found at Charlestown Porthpean and Crinnis and are all within 10 minutes’ drive. Truro with its Gothic cathedral cinema theatre shopping and museum is well worth a day out and is within 30 minutes’ drive. Many walks can be taken around this part of the county from coastal rambles disused heritage trails that cross the county to inland wooded walks to something a little more strenuous for the more active. Horse riding surfing cycling and National Trust houses and gardens are plentiful in the area. A little further afield but easily reached is Truro Padstow Newquay St Ives and Lostwithiel all providing an alternative view of this dramatic and beautiful county. Fishing can be found locally.

    A rectangular box which looks like a converted garage is not a cottage. It was overlooked by the property next door so we were unable to open the blinds in either the bedroom or living area We were shocked to find the fuse board in the bathroom, that is illegal. The water in the kitchen sink ran cold after 30 seconds and the garden was unkempt. However, the shower was good, the kitchen well equipped and the dishwasher and washing machine were appreciated. The sofa was comfortable but we could not get the TV to work.

    A clean and compact property with everything you need for a stay. The town isn't great but its easy to get to other areas in Cornwall from this location.

    We really enjoyed our holiday here and found it an excellent location to explore the area. Cottage had everything we needed and was very quiet



    out of 10

    Excellent as a base for this part of the South West Coastal path walk, due to the good transport links. We were initially concerned that parking would be an issue, but in actual fact it was outside of the cottage which is in a quiet cul de sac. Cottage was well equipped and comfortable. The owners were friendly and helpful. Also left us a lovely cream tea on arrival.

    The bungalow was clean and lots of stuff was new. Because there was water pressure fluctuations the hot water in the sinks and shower could suddenly become cold. The owner cannot be held responsible for the water pressure. The sink in the bathroom I found to small. The back garden had been cut with a strimmer after being left for to long, consequently we had grass bits over the kitchen window, grass trodden into bungalow. The Welcome pack was very nice and generous. We found its position was very good.

    Lovely accommodation with all we needed for our stay. Conveniently located for all the sites in the area and lots for us to do with Molly our dog. Would certainly recommend Crocus to anyone wanting to visit the St Austell area.
