Step Inside

Well Cottage is a beautiful cottage located within Penpol House and is set over two floors. Arrive into the stylish open plan social space and feel right at home as you sink into comfortable sofas, enjoy home-cooked meals and simply enjoy time out with friends and family. Well Cottage is aptly named after the original well located in the floor of the kitchen, it is quite a feature! The cottage stairs lead to the first floor and the collection of two bedrooms. Choose from azure blues and sunshine yellow decor for your bedroom backdrop or the fresh palm greens of the second bedroom. The luxury bathroom is no less considered offering a vintage style roll top bath and indulgent walk in drench shower. 

From your Holiday Door

Full height doors can be opened wide onto the paved terrace, a superb sun trap on which to enjoy al fresco dining from hearty breakfasts to simple suppers. A further raised terrace offers additional bench style seating and space for children and dogs to safely play. The cottage lawn stretches out from the terraces with beautifully planted borders full of greens and colour and leads through to the wonderful grounds of Penpol House which guests are welcome to explore and enjoy. A bubbling hot tub is located in the grounds. Wander down the quiet lane to Penpol Creek, an inlet off the tidal River Gannel, in just 3 minutes. This picture perfect inlet teems with birdlife and offers access to the South West Coast Path leading out towards the mouth of the river and Crantock beach. Crantock beach is one of Cornwall's most beautiful as you dip over the soft sand dunes and arrive to the wonderful seascapes, attractive cliffs and River Gannel. The River Gannel offers calmer waters away from the surf where locals master their paddle boarding skills and children paddle. A ferryboat shuttles to and fro at high tide leading beachgoers over to the Newquay side and the popular Fern Pit Cafe for a cream tea, one of Cornwall's best kept secrets. Heading west, the south west coast path is well worth a stomp towards Polly Joke and onwards to Holywell Bay, a popular filming spot for BBC's Poldark. To the north, experience the sights and sounds of Newquay, Watergate Bay and up to Padstow.
