In the heart of Daphne du Maurier country, both the adjoining VisitEngland Gold Award-winning Prideaux Farmhouse (ref TMO) and Prideaux Cottage (ref TMP), together with the beautifully converted, detached single-storey Wagon House (ref TPE) are located on the Prideaux Estate which sits at the top of the Luxulyan Valley with far reaching and rambling views across the valley and woodlands. The valley is a treat for all the family whatever the time of year and is only a short walk from these three properties. Home to what has been regarded as ‘the most beautiful walk in Cornwall’ the area takes you through deeply wooded paths, picturesque streams and under an ancient viaduct that once carried Cornwall’s china clay, tin and granite barges through to the north. It is just a short stroll to Prideaux Wood where the Saints’ Way walk can be found, 27 miles of historic footpath that leads all the way from the fishing village of Fowey on the south coast to the harbour town of Padstow in the north. The path is steeped in historic Cornish interest rambling through ancient ruins and a whole tapestry of poignant history. For coastal walking, the Cornish cliffs allow walkers to take in the invigorating Atlantic air and enjoy incredible ocean vistas. This area of Cornwall is rich in historic homes and gardens including the world famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan -a restored Victorian masterpiece that was lost to the world for many years and is forever linked with the village of Mevagissey on the south coast. There are many other gardens of interest including Caerhays, Tregahan and Trelissick on the Roseland Peninsula. The south coast also has many outstanding beaches, cliff walks, secluded coves and historic seafaring towns such as Falmouth and Fowey which are within easy reach of Prideaux. Fowey, renowned as the home of Daphne du Maurier, a royal yacht club and annual regatta, is within 5 miles and has plenty of restaurants, excellent pubs, cafes, galleries and shops. From here a boat can be taken along the coast and to maybe catch sight of dolphins in the bay. Sea fishing trips, kayaking and sailing can all be enjoyed from Fowey. Golf, horse riding, surfing, sailing and cycling are all available close by. Padstow, St Ives, Truro and Looe are all easily reached and provide an exciting day out in Cornwall. Shop 1 mile, pub 11/2 miles.

The Wagon House is a lovely place to stay. It's in beautiful, quiet surroundings and is clean and tidy. Lovely walk-in shower and good-sized kitchen. Local shops (St Blazey and St Austell) are a short journey away. I would book again.

Nice to go back to this cottage after 4 years away. Peace feels tired and in need of an update. Kitchen is a great size, but the induction hob is just useless. Bed is now so hard and pillows so lightweight and awful quality. Bath still has wobbly tap and mould/rust. House was full of Flys on Saturday 1st October when we arrived, probably after leaving windows and doors open to air the rooms. TV is too small and mounted at wrong angle for comfortable viewing. TV stand and slightly larger unit would be better for the large lounge. Overall a disappointing stay and probably not going to return.

We had a fabulous week at The Wagon House and would highly recommend it. Very peaceful setting close to many great places to visit. Tricky to find the cottage - the instructions need to be improved and updated ( eg the Jet garage is now Gulf...) - even the local Indian takeaway couldn't find us (twice!). The cottage is very clean but the finish isn't good - needs better cleaning products. Dining room chairs need replacing as sagging badly and uncomfortable but we were blessed with warm sunshine so could eat outside for most of the week which was delightful. Lovely shower and well appointed bathroom. Overall would highly recommend and hopefully return - although would have liked more privacy in the back garden which opens out directly onto the road.
