The Aviaries is a traditional character cottage tucked away on a quiet 'no through' country lane, close to the heart of the small, peaceful, rural village of St Teath and offers a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. There is plenty to do and see nearby - If it's a day at the beach building sand castles and surfing you're after, the beautiful beach of Trebarwith Strand is about 3 miles away and Polzeath a 20 minute away and Daymer Bay is just a little further around the coast.  Small coastal villages such as Port Isaac, Port Quin, Port Gaverne and Boscastle are waiting to be explored or you can immerse yourself in the legend of King Arthur at Tintagel.  Away from the coast, countryside walks can be enjoyed from the village and the wide and wild expanses of Bodmin Moor are a short drive away - dotted around the edge of the moor you will find several villages, most of them with pubs offering a warm welcome and good food.  Exploring further afield, the Eden project is about 40 minutes' drive and there are several historic houses within easy reach. After a busy day, relax in the rear terraced and secluded outdoor space before heading just down the road to the local pub for food and drink or, in the cooler months, why not light the fire and enjoy a cosy night in?  Apart from the pub, St Teath also boasts butchers, a post office and a village shop, so all in all it's a great base for your holiday.

Local Area

Surrounded by rolling countryside, St Teath is a picturesque village tucked away down quiet country lanes, yet within easy reach of many of the better-known towns and villages of North Cornwall, including Rock, Polzeath, Port Gaverne and Port Isaac. Trebarwith Strand is less than 4 miles and it's only a 20 minute drive to Polzeath. The village has a lovely pub, the White Hart Inn, and a Post Office and village stores providing all your basic needs. Nearby, there is also Bowood Park Hotel and Golf Course, where you can follow up a round of golf with a meal in their restaurant. If you think you recognise Port Isaac, it may be because you know it better as Portwenn, the home of TV's Doc Martin; much of the filming for the series takes place here and in the surrounding area. The village has access to many wonderful walking routes, providing plenty of opportunities to explore the varied landscape of the local area. There is lots of wildlife to be found in many areas of Cornwall; birdlife is prolific, and you may also see larger mammals such as otters or badgers if you're very lucky! There are also plenty of wild flowers crowding the verges and hedgerows, creating an idyllic scene on your countryside rambles, while bees and butterflies abound, making for a truly relaxing and tranquil break.

It was very easy to book and your correspondence was so helpful - this was our first time booking a cottage ourselves so this was perfect.Miss Hannah Jarvis - 7th August 2016
The cottage welcomed us as soon as we opened the front door. It is such a bright and friendly little home-so beautifully decorated, as well as being thoroughly equipped and spotlessly clean. The location was ideal for either walking the coastal path or scaling the heights of Bodmin Moor, and the village pub, shop and post office were great services almost on the doorstep of the cottage. I would love to return for another holiday.Ms M - 1st July 2016
