About Stoney Nook
Stoney Nook is the perfect place for a holiday. Near the beaches and the famous Padstow, with it's pretty harbour and celebrity chefs, and yet private and away from the crowds - a real benefit in peak season!
With around 10 beaches accessible within a 30 minute drive, you will certainly never get bored. Whether you enjoy the surf, the restaurants, the dramatic cliff top walks, or just the sensation of sand between your toes, Cornwall has it all.
Rural retreat in the Cornish countryside
The cottage is located in Trenance, a farming hamlet just a mile south of St Issey. The house is well equipped and has everything you need to wind down and relax, whether in summer or winter. If countryside and slowing down is your thing, alongside a comfortable and welcoming house, you have come to the right place!
About the area
The beaches are certainly the main draw to Cornwall. They are truly spectacular, year round, on both a balmy summer evening or in wild stormy weather, when the surf's crashing on the rocks.
2 miles from the house is the Camel trail, a 17 mile route along a former railway, perfect for cyclists and walkers.
Padstow harbour is a real treat, a mix of quaint shops and a working fishing port. Boat trips are available from here, including sea safaris and fishing trips, as well as the ferry across to Rock.
Beyond the Padstow area, there are stunning beaches at Polzeath, Watergate bay and Newquay, all about 30 minutes away.
Tintagel castle, the Eden project, Bodmin railway, Pencarrow House and Port Issac all make fantastic days out.
The South coast of Cornwall offers a whole different experience and is only 40 minutes from Stoney Nook.
There is truly something for everyone!
One well behaved dog (but not a puppy) is welcome, by prior arrangement. Please bring your own dog bed, but you will find a dog bowl in the house.
Cornwall is a wonderful place for dogs. Please check on which beaches are dog friendly, especially during peak season.
Dogs are not allowed upstairs or on the furniture and please do not leave them unattended in the house - many thanks!
The boundary at Stoney Nook is a typical Cornish boundary, with vegetation completely covering a small wall, and hence it is not 100% secure in places. A determined dog could probably jump over, so please keep them on a lead if you are concerned.
