Doodles Holiday Cottage

Within a short drive of five all-year dog friendly beaches and less than a mile by country lane from Caerhays Castle and the south facing sandy cove at Porthluney, this attractive semi-detached stone cottage enjoys tranquil countryside views from every window. Set in a small row of pretty character cottages built in the early 1900's as part of the Caerhays Estate, Doodles offers spacious family accommodation in the peaceful hamlet of Tregavarras.

Fronted by a little walled and gated patio area, the front door set beneath a covered porch way opens to the entrance hall with coat pegs and a slate flag stone floor. To one side, a dual aspect sitting/dining room spans the length of the cottage with comfortable lounge seating arranged before the Victorian fireplace, a warm rug on the slate floor, and a charming dining area at the rear.

The remainder of the ground floor accommodation comprises a shower room W.C. with hand basin and a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room at the rear with two windows enjoying views over the valley. Carpeted stairs lead up from the hall to the first floor landing where there is a delightful bathroom W.C. with vanity basin and roll top bath with hand shower attachment, and two bedrooms with lovely views over unspoilt fields. There is a bedroom at the rear with a 5ft double bed and the master bedroom at the front has a 6ft double; zip linked which can be separated into twin beds.

A half glazed door from the kitchen leads out to a large decked terrace which catches the afternoon sun and from here, steps lead down to a sloping hillside garden with a fully enclosed lawn and mature shrubs. At the bottom of the garden, a gate opens to a rough area of grass bordered by a trickling stream. A utility room accessed from the decking area provides a useful laundry area with dog wash facility. Parking for one car is available in a garage about 20 yards from the property and a second car can be parked opposite.

Gorran, just under 2 miles by road, has a church, village store/P.O. and pub featured in TV's Wycliffe and the un-commercialised small beaches at Porthluney, Hemmick and Vault are less than a 10 minute drive. The attractive sandy beach at Gorran Haven is 3 miles, Mevagissey has a selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and boat trips from the harbour about 4 miles away and for a wider selection of amenities the town of St Austell is 9 miles. There are local walks leading to the village of Gorran and the South West Coast Path at Porthluney beach and for garden lovers, Caerhays Castle, famed for its Camellias, the Lost Gardens of Heligan (2 miles) and the Eden Project are all within easy reach.
