Gardenia Cottage Cornwall
Our comfortable, well equipped cottage, with two parking spaces, is in a distinctive development in a quiet rural location with lovely long-distance views to the countryside beyond Wadebridge. Its south-facing enclosed garden and patio with barbecue has rear access to woodlands and a meadow. There is an outside tap with hose to rinse surfing gear, a large sun canopy and picnic table. A rear gate gives access round to the front of the cottage, giving guests the chance to bring wet equipment on to the site without going through the house.
There is no passing traffic but it is easily accessed being only 300 metres from the coast road.
When you arrive the caretaker will have ensured the heating has been on as necessary, and the housekeepers will have put freshly laundered linen and towels on the beds. So you will be comfortable from the start. The children can play in the garden after their journey while you unpack your vehicle which you can park by the front door. You will find the house well-equipped and easy to manage, so you can concentrate on relaxation and enjoyment for the rest of your stay. If you want cosy evenings, the wood-burner is easy to ignite and clean.
You may have ordered an online shop to be delivered or you may choose to take a 5 minute drive to the local shops in Rock, including a high quality butcher, baker, fishmonger, deli and large village store. Alternatively, there are many pubs and restaurants within easy reach, and even take-away pizza and fish and chips.
