Nestled at the bottom of a private lane, the house is just a 2 minute drive off the A30 and the nearest village is Mitchell. The house is perfectly placed with easy access to both the beaches and within easy reach of all that Cornwall has to offer. It is just 8 miles from the centre of Newquay and 8 miles from the centre of Truro. The closest beach is just a short drive away and there are some fantastic walks just a short distance from the house.
You will need a car to get here and the country lane to reach our house has a number of potholes and can get rather muddy in the winter. We also share it with our neighbours who have young children and animals and the farmer. From time to time, you may spot a family of deer who also like to take a wander up and down the lane.
Mitchell Village is a 2 minute drive away, there is a lovely pub called the Plume of Feathers and also a small playground. There’s a Pick Your Own farm that does the most amazing strawberries and a beautiful rose grower that sells the most amazing roses.
Summercourt Village is a five minute drive away – there is a small corner shop that does great pasties and has a post office, where you can also withdraw cash. There’s a small children’s playground in the village.
Porth, Watergate Bay, Fistral and all the other Newquay beaches are a short drive away. Further to the North we love Mawgan Porth, Bedruthan Steps, Constantine Bay, Treyanon. Past Newquay to the South, Crantock, Holywell Bay, Polly Joke are close by too.
