St Teresa’s is a charming cottage steeped in history that has been beautifully renovated to offer guests a bright modern kitchen with underfloor heating and lovely bedrooms to accommodate 6 people.  The cottage is in the wooded Vale of Lanherne, in the heart of St Mawgan village and offers two beautiful secluded gardens, bordered by a Grade 2 listed wall covered in wisteria, the perfect place to relax and dine al fresco.  It is set in one of Cornwall’s most beautiful, unspoiled countryside villages, which is an attraction in itself with its village green, shop and tearooms, and award winning pub. The family friendly surfing beaches of Watergate Bay and Mawgan Porth are a 5 minute drive away and for walkers, a network of footpaths connects with the dramatic South West Coast Path.

The picturesque Japanese garden and Bonzai tree nursery in the village is well worth a visit.  St Teresas is only a five minute drive from three stunning beaches – Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth and Bedruthan Steps. Mawgan Porth is a family friendly beach complete with rock pools to explore. Whilst Watergate Bay boasts some of the best watersports in the region and is home to the Jamie Oliver inspired Fifteen restaurant.
There are many beautiful walks available in the surrounding area, a must visit would be the stunning Bedruthan Steps, an area of outstanding natural beauty.Cornwall’s famous gardens such as the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are within easy reach. As our the pretty fishing towns of Padstow and St Ives with many fine shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants. Family attractions nearby include Dairyland, Crealy and Old Macdonald’s Farm.

We have had a lovely stay in St Teresa's cottage. We enjoyed visiting Fistral beach and having a wonderful cream tea in the cafe. Beautiful cottage and surrounding gardens and village. We hope to visit again next year. Thank you Josh, Jenny and family - 22nd April 2017
What a wonderful relaxing break at this beautiful cottage. Just what we all needed to recharge our batteries. Lovely meal at Falcon Inn and Travellers Rest. The walk to Mawgan Porth beach is definitley worth it. Look forward to coming back asap!The Ashtons - 13th February 2016
This cottage is a hidden treasure! As first time parents, my partner and our 5 wk old baby daughter couldn't have wished for a more perfect and tranquil place! We will be revisiting in the future! Thank you! Mel, Los and Petra - 3rd October 2015
13 months on an we're back for our second visit to St Teresa's. The weather was a bit mixed at times but never bad enough for long enough to dampen the spirits too much! St Mawgan remains one of our favourite Cornish spots, perfectly complimented by the lovely cottage. We leave relaxed, refreshed and with firm plans to return again.Steve, Jan, Ollie and Chloe - 15th August 2015
