Description

A delightful 18th Century cottage, set in the charming hamlet of Trevelmond on the southern fringes of  Bodmin Moor, which is perfect for access to the moors as well as offering a great base from which to explore Cornwall. Thatch View Cottage feels both homely and welcoming. The thick stone walls and exposed beams provide plenty of charming character whilst the modern furnishings and amenities will ensure a most comfortable stay. The stunning inglenook fireplace, with its cosy wood-burning stove, presents a striking feature in the living room and the well-equipped kitchen/dining room with its welcoming and warming Rayburn range, is a great place for family meals and evenings spent relaxing together. Upstairs are three well-appointed and cosy bedrooms and a modern bathroom making this an ideal cottage for a small family or friends wanting some quality time together.

Although tucked away off the beaten track, this tranquil hamlet is easily accessible both from the A38 route into Cornwall from Plymouth and the main A30 from Bodmin. The seaside town of Looe can be reached within 20 minutes by car. Both the picturesque, estuary town of Fowey and the delights of The Eden Project are but a 30-minute drive. Beautiful walks abound in the vicinity and if you’re a keen cyclist then be sure to pay a visit to Cardinham Woods where some great cycle trails await you. Golitha Falls is well worth a visit as the water cascades through a steep-sided gorge on the upper reaches of the River Fowey and is absolutely spectacular.

Reviews

What a beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting! We have had an amazing weekend, which was made even more special by staying here at Thatch view, which is clean well equipped, clean and a little treasure. Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay here, we have also left you a little gift on the fridge.

With love Emily, Danny, Alfie, Ruby and Maddio the dog.,

Lovely clean and well appointed cottage. We had a lovely stay and would highly recommend. Good central location for exploring coastlines, the Camel Trail, The Eden Project, etc. Welcome hamper was a nice touch.

Katy Rintoul ,

Thank you for a wonderful Cornish holiday! We've enjoyed the beautiful Thatch view cottage very much. So clean and comfy we felt very comfy and felt very much at home! Crows Nest Inn not to be missed and the Padstow coastlines are amazing! Thank you for sharing the cottage with us.

Jan and Delty,

So glad we found this place, great property in a great location! Looe is just a short drive away. We really enjoyed cycling from Wadebridge to Padstow. A massive thank you to Coral for sharing your home. We look forward to a visit next year!

We felt very comfortable in this small house. Everything is very lovely and decorated with nice details. I like the country kitchen the best! It is a super nice retreat, in touristy Cornwall. The housekeeper Coral is very helpful, nice and helpful. Likewise the neighbors. It feels like home. It is a good starting point to visit all the major attractions in Cornwall.

We have spent two wonderful weeks in the lovely cottage. We fit in comfortable and at home. We explored whole Cornwall: We visited Eden and Lanhydrock- very nice! Various villages and towns, St. Ives (hence the magnet!) Polperro, Fowey, St. Agnes, Tintagel, Porthleveren, Mevagissey, Newquay, Port Issca and Truro. Our favourite beaches are Crackington Haven (near bude), Crantock beach and Porthkerris... We enjoyed a nice lunch in Bowgie Inn. Thank you for the welcome hamper. Coral was vert nice to us, as were the next door neighbours. Wonderful heatwave for us in Cornwall!

Past Customer,

We have spent an active few days exploring beautiful Cornwall from the base at Thatch view. The weather was superb so we have spent time at the beach (plenty of dog friendly ones to be found). We visited the Eden Project which was quite spectacular. One day was spent walking on the coastal path with a circular walk starting and finishing at Garran Haven. Polperro, Looe, Fowey and Port Issca (Doc Martins county). The house was superbly equipped, spotless clean and comfortable. Thanks Coral. Would love to come back! Welcome hamper much appreciated also! Another magnet for the collection too!

We have spent a lovely few days exploring beautiful Cornwall from our base at Thatch View Cottage. The house is superbly equipped and was spotlessly clean and comfortable, would love to come back, the welcome hamper was much appreciated also!

What a beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting. We have had a fantastic weekend which was made even more special here in Thatch View which is well equipped, clean and a little treasure. Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay here.

Emily & Danny,

What a privilege to be the first official guests at Thatch View Cottage and to share our feedback on what has been a fantastic holiday. We fell in love with the cottage as soon as we walked in and the welcome hamper was such a kind touch. We made some amazing memories on a great holiday here in Cornwall and Thatch Cottage has been the best of the best for us.

Richard & Jane ,

What a privilege to be the first 'official' guests at Thatch View cottage and share our feedback on what has been a fantastic holiday!!! Patrick, Hilary and family- you have created something really special here! We fell in love with the property as soon as we walked in and the welcome hamper was such a great touch! Thank you. Weather was on our side for the entire week. Padstow, Fowey, Charlestown, Falmouth and Port Issac. We like our walks so totally recommend the costal walk between Looe and Polperro. The views are stunning, plus you can catch a small ferry back to save your feet. Polzeath to Padstow was another coastal walk we'd highly advise and the chip shop on the front harbour is much cheaper and better than Rick Steins. We leave today with some great memories of a great holiday and we are unanimous agreement that Thatch view has been the best of the best for us. We have left a small gift by the fridge to mark the occasion of your first guests. I am sure many more will follow- including the fridge magnets. Many thanks in your part for delivering and memorable and relaxing holiday and we look forward to booking again.

Richard, Jane, James, Michelle and Maisie,

If ever there was a place to fully appreciate the stark beauty of the Cornish landscape, Bodmin Moor has to be it.  With endless sweeping vistas in every direction, tumbled outcrops of granite, and inviting paths and tracks to explore, this area of Cornwall is a walker's paradise.  The famous Jamaica Inn is sited here, with all its literary and historical associations.  With plenty of sheep and moorland ponies wandering freely (be sure to keep your dog under control!) you can almost imagine you have been transported back to those bygone days.  More recently, of course, the moor was used extensively for filming on the new adaptation of Poldark.  When the dashing Mr Poldark gallops across your screen, you may well be seeing the scenery of the moor in the background. A large part of the moor has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.  This region also has its fair share of Arthurian legends, another facet which lends a mysterious air to the landscape, and an extra depth to Cornwall's rich and varied history, and of course who can forget the rumours of the Beast of Bodmin Moor? The many other attractions, including the National Trust's Lanhydrock House, the verdant and flourishing Tamar Valley, historic sites such as castles, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, and plenty of evidence of Cornwall's mining legacy, make this area a must-see.
