A charming property with high quality furnishings just a short walk through woodland to the beach.

Set amidst a wooded valley with a tranquil stream running alongside it, Provender House is the quintessential detached country house, the original mill stone now forms the doorstep and the pretty garden is edged by the stream. A short walk through woods to the beach is highly recommended. The pretty village of Veryan, which sits on the edge of the Roseland Peninsula is minutes away and offers a wonderful local pub serving local ales and food, a gallery and a shop. Along the peninsula visitors can find many beaches including Pendower and Carne, considered to be amongst the prettiest in Cornwall. There are also fishing villages with the day’s catch which guests can buy for that special meal or simple barbecue on the beach. The area is renowned for its beauty and dramatic coastline which provides hours of walking with stunning views across the open sea or inland across rolling fields. There is horse riding, golf and cycling within easy reach of the village. Further afield is Fowey, Truro, Padstow, St Ives and Falmouth which can be reached by passenger ferry from nearby St Mawes. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are easily reached and both well worth a visit. Truro has a theatre, cinema, a museum, plentiful local restaurants and excellent shopping. Falmouth has the historic docks and is home to the National Maritime Museum, with many hands-on exhibits for children of all ages. Pleasure cruises around this picturesque bay can be enjoyed, as can kayaking, river trips to Truro or simply meander the narrow streets. There are many cycle trails in the area many of which are linked and are mainly off road. Cycle hire centres are available and it is possible to cross the county by bike, or cycle through the Cornish industrial heritage sights and marvel at the ancient tin mines. The beaches of the peninsula and Cornwall are second to none and provide the ultimate day out for little cost. Rock pooling, crabbing and fishing as well as lazing on the fine white sand are all recommended. Shops and pub ¾ mile.

    Very comfortable and spacious accommodation. The property is situated in a secluded woodland setting along with four others. Parking can be a bit tight if everyone has a large vehicle with the turning circle of a barge, like our Defender has. One slight downside is that there is a public footpath that runs across the front of the house so could be a bit busy in the summer months. Our visit was in September and several walkers and dogs came through each day. The village is nearby with a friendly public house and shop/post office. The nearby Carne beach owned by the National Trust is a lovely place to visit and dogs are allowed. We would definitely visit again.

    We recently got back from another lovely stay at this amazing dog friendly holiday cottage - it's really a large house rather than a traditional cottage and it's really perfect in every way. It's off the beaten track deep down in a valley and in the middle of woodland with a stream running through it, which leads down to a lovely little beach. Though each time is magical, we often visit in Spring and have the added wow factor of the bluebells which are prolific at that time. It's not stand alone though it is detached, as there are couple of other neighbouring properties with it but they're not close enough to encroach on your privacy. The property has a paved courtyard and patio furniture and a large BBQ guests can us. Those with smaller children should be aware it does have a tiny covered pond, as mentioned on the website when booking. There is also a wooden picnic table on a grassed area in front of the house and the little stream is adjacent. The place itself is kitted out extremely well with everything you could need for a holiday and more - there is even baking equipment and a food mixer if you should feel inspired to pop on your pinny and get creative! More to the point, there is lots of everything so even if you fill every room with guests, there is plenty of crockery and plates to have a dishwasher full and lots of spares, without having to hunt for an extra mug or plate! Also handy is the washing machine, complete with basket and pegs and though there isn't a dryer there are both a regular clothes horse and an electric heating drying rack. There is a retractable washing line on the grassed area next to the shed by the parking bays. Off of the fab kitchen there is a light and airy conservatory dining room and a further small kitchen table and chairs to ensure everyone can take a seat at mealtimes and bench seating and stools mean its easy to grab a seat while having your cuppa. There is also a smaller freeview tv in the kichen. The place is split level with a huge lounge up a few stairs, it has plenty of comfy sofas and a large tv with freeview and a DVD player and a fabulous wood burner. Also upstairs is a double room with an ensuite and a twin room. The kitchen, dining areas, family bathroom with bath and shower and more bedrooms are downstairs, not an entire flight but just maybe four steps or so down from the front door. It might be useful to know that the other two single rooms are accessed via the lovely big king size bedroom so that may not be suitable for some guests. The main village is a tiny place you'll drive through on your way to Provenders and it has tearooms, a fantastic well stocked shop and post office and a smashing village pub. They also sell newspapers, local produce, alcohol and hot pasties and are open good long hours. The hosts of the Village Inn and their regulars and are very friendly and the food is great. There are also the Melinsey Mill tearooms a short walk from the village and actually opposite the entrance you could pick up the woodland walk and it takes you back to the cottage a different way. One end is the Mill, the cottage in the middle and the beach at the end. It's a bit of a trek through the woods but a lovely walk nonetheless. In fairness, walking to the pub is quite a long one, downhill from the cottage on the way but unlit and all uphill round the country lanes on the way home, so I'd take the car! Though seemingly in the middle of nowhere, that is the magic of the Roseland area of Cornwall, the scenery is spectacular and you aren't really more than a short drive to nearby village and towns. Bigger towns are really only half an hour maximum with St Austell one way and Truro the other and obviously every Cornish town, beach and attraction not that far in any direction. In recent years the house has good mobile phone signal and wi-fi but if you want to escape your technology, the owners supply a selection of books and board games to amuse yourselves between your daytime jollying. There is a landline phone just in case your mobile network provider fails you, then you can call out to local area numbers, so if you need, an emergency doctor, dentist or vet etc, you just make your call and pop some coins in the honesty box. The phone also receives incoming calls. It's truly a charming place to visit, lovely kind caring owners who really want you to enjoy their holiday home as much as they do, the caretaker is friendly and helpful in the event of any issues and there is plenty to see and do in this area of Cornwall, well worth a visit, in or out of season!
