"Beautifully appointed cottage away from it all

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We were so looking forward to our stay as it was our first break since working seven days a week for the past seven months and we weren’t disappointed. The cottage had everything we needed, not just for us but for our two dogs and we felt right at home straight away. The decor and furnishings are delightful and added to the calming mood of the cottage. We would certainly recommend Granny Polly’s for anyone looking for some serious R&R whilst being a great location for exploring the surrounding area."

“What a great stay at Granny Polly’s. We arrived greeted by a basket full of goodies (including cream teas and even goodies for our dog). The location of the cottage is great, lovely, quiet and peaceful. The cottage itself is done to a beautiful standard, kitchen is well equipped, the fireplace was also amazing for cold evenings. 

Would highly recommend."

“Really lovely cottage, newly refurbished with great facilities. Very comfortable and clean. Highly recommend it. We stayed with our three young children and it was perfect. Thank you! ”

Sarah Jones - August 2018


“We really enjoyed our stay at Granny Polly's Cottage. You really feel you're getting away from things in a secluded rural local. You are close to great beaches and restaurants though so it's a great place to explore what south west Cornwall has to offer. The cottage is newly refurbished and tastefully decorated and Sarah and Sebastian are both very helpful. We would definitely be back and would recommend!”

"We had a wonderful time. Amazing communication from the moment we booked. Peaceful and beautiful setting and a spotless stylish cottage with all you need and more, especially welcoming if you have dogs. Wonderful location if you want to get away from it all but still only a few minutes drive to the beach, porthleven or marizion. Would recommend highly and we aim to visit again. Thanks!"

Location

Granny Polly’s is outside Godolphin Cross, a small village which is part of the Godolphin Estate. The area is a World Heritage Site due to its history of mining for tin, copper and china clay as well as its outstanding beauty. Quiet and idyllic countryside, Granny Polly's Cottage is only a ten minute drive to the nearest beach at Praa Sands.  A little further on is Marazion with its fabulous beach overlooking the famous St Michaels Mount and a bit further west is Penzance.  Travelling east, Porthleven is a few miles away and fast becoming a go-to destination with an attractive harbour and many great restaurants including Rick Stein's among others. Try Amelie’s on the harbour they do a great Sunday lunch with live Jazz and it’s one of my favourites. Praa Sands, with a mile of golden sand, offers great surfing and a laid-back beach bar from where you can watch the surfers as the sun comes down. Further west and only a short drive away are St Ives, Mousehole and Sennen, all in easy reach. For walkers there is plenty on your doorstep and you are surrounded by stunning countryside. A trip up Tregonning Hill is a must from where you get an amazing 360 degree vista across the fields to the coast with Mousehole and Penzance in the distance, or walk the other way up to Godolphin Hill and around National Trust fields and onto the Godolphin Estate.

Living

Walking in through the utility room and lobby, (a perfect spot for changing muddy boots) you enter the large open plan sitting and dining room which overlook the garden. It’s a lovely room to relax in with a comfy three-seater sofa and a rocking chair. Perfect for cosy evenings in, the open fire is a real feature of this lovely room. For entertainment, there is a large flat screen TV with Freeview and a firestick for catching Netflix. The other end of the sitting room is the dining area beside a garden view window.

COOKING AND EATING

The dining area has comfortable seating for four with an extendable table and chairs. The stunning kitchen off the lobby overlooks the entrance and has everything you need to cook up a feast and more. There is an electric oven together with a ceramic hob, fridge with a freezer compartment and a microwave oven.

Sleeping

The bedrooms overlook the pretty gardens and are both spacious with pocket sprung mattresses, wardrobes and each with a chest of drawers and bedside tables. One has a king-sized bed and the other a superking-sized bed which can be split into two large singles, just let us know.

Bathing

The luxury shower room offers far reaching views and has a walk-in shower perfect for after a day’s activities. Towels and bedding are provided for you, just remember to bring your own beach towels.

UTILITY ROOM

Entering through the front door you come into a fitted utility room housing a dishwasher and washing machine as well as having plenty of space for coats and boots.

Essentials

GARDEN: At the rear of the cottage is a fully enclosed private garden which can be accessed by a side gate, or from the living room. The pretty lawned area is a good size with a sunken patio area for al-fresco meals and in spring you will see a profusion of flowers and plants as they come into bloom.

PARKING: There's room to park one to two cars but do drive carefully up the lane especially if you have a low-slung sports car. You enter to the large gravelled driveway shared with Tregonning Cottage and have a private space to park directly outside Granny Polly’s Cottage.

PETS: This is a dog friendly cottage and dogs can holiday here free of charge! Throws are provided to go over the sofa so that your dog can sit next to you whilst relaxing. Please keep pets downstairs (stair gate provided) and note that the painted stairs can be slippery.  Dogs must not be left alone in the property.

WI-FI: There is free wi-fi at Granny Polly’s. As always this far West distances to the exchange and weather can slow things up and it can occasionally go down. There is reasonable 3/4G on most networks for checking emails if this happens.

ACCESSIBILITY: Granny Polly’s allows you to park right outside but both bedrooms are on the first floor with steep, painted stairs up so it is not suitable for those with limited mobility but always check with us first.

JUST FOR TWO: Discounted rates are available out of peak season for parties of 2 staying for a week.
