"Perfect in every way!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Daisy Cottage is the perfect cottage to stay in if you want to get away from it all but don’t want to be too far away from shops and amenities. Set amongst the trees in the blissfully quiet and beautiful Cot Valley, it’s a traditional cottage with a fresh stylish interior. Warm and cosy but with plenty of space for 4 adults we felt immediately relaxed and at home. Cooking was a pleasure in the very well equipped kitchen and it was lovely to have a separate dining area to enjoy our meals.

The weather during our stay was mixed but we know and love this part of Cornwall so were happy to be out and about regardless. It was lovely though to come back to Daisy Cottage, draw the curtains, light the fire and settle down for the evening with some good food and a glass of wine.

The Cornish Way have really got it right when it comes to holiday cottages. They have gone to a lot of effort to make sure everything is just right. The leaflets provided before we left gave very helpful and accurate information on getting to the property and what we needed to know about the cottage along with local information and telephone numbers. The local milk, eggs and strawberries thoughtfully left for us in the kitchen were a lovely surprise.

So thank you Seb and your team for making our stay so easy and relaxed. It was just what we needed and we look forward to another holiday with The Cornish Way before too long."

“If you enjoy the outdoors and enjoy a quiet retreat, look no further. Fabulous location. thank you for a lovely weekend. We had some amazing walks and made some amazing memories, thanks again.”

“This cottage was like staying in an enchanted garden. The house and flowers were beautiful. The house had everything you could want. The little wood stove heated the lounge room and made it so cosy to sit and relax. Also, the extra touches in the kitchen when we arrived finding fresh bread and butter. We wished we could have stayed longer.”

"Coming to Daisy Cottage is like entering a sub tropical paradise - a truly beautiful setting. The cottage is spacious, clean and very well equipped and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Ten minutes away on foot is the small, dog-friendly beach at Porth Nanven (and there aren’t too many of those in Cornwall in the summer!). There is so much to see and do in this part of Cornwall and Daisy Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore. There are some wonderful coastal walks, taking in the region’s rich mining heritage; the award-winning Tate gallery in St Ives; the Minack Theatre 20 minutes away.I would thoroughly recommend staying in this wonderful cottage and can’t wait to come back to this spectacular part of the country.”

We would definitely recommend Daisy cottage. It is comfortable and has plenty of space. It is a lovely place to stay and is set in beautiful gardens. There are beautiful beaches at Porthcurno as and the wonderful Mincak Theatre. The cottage is only 15 minutes walk from the sea and is close to the South West Coast Path."

WHERE IT IS

Daisy Cottage, Cot Valley

This timeless detached cottage is set in magical private gardens tucked away in the heart of the stunning Cot Valley a ten-minute stroll from Porth Nanven Cove and the South West coast path. The epitome of a classic Cornish cottage there is even a stream running through the gardens with a foot bridge leading across to a secluded sitting area. Peace and tranquility are the watchwords for a stay in this lovely home.

The Cot Valley is a sub-tropical oasis containing only a handful of homes surrounded by a profusion of plants and wildlife and numerous paths leading down to the sea at the foot of the valley. This is a very special location and whether you are coming to walk, surf or simply escape, Daisy Cottage offers a perfect base from where to enjoy the best the far west of Cornwall has to offer.

Arriving is like stepping back into Poldark’s era as you walk through the hidden gardens and into this eighteenth century cottage. Unusually spacious, all the mod cons are taken care of and the comfortable accommodation has bedrooms across two separate sides of the house. This makes it great for parties who need a little space or is equally good for couples looking for a break who can benefit from a just for two rate. The large sitting room is open to the dining area and with plentiful seating and a woodburner it’s a great social space to relax in after days out exploring. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped and there is a ground floor bathroom off it and stairs up to a master bedroom. The other side of the cottage has stairs from the sitting room leading up to another double bedroom and bathroom as well as the cutest of children’s bedrooms with two small beds.

Its dog friendly too and your four-legged friend will be in heaven with so many walks from the doorstep. For beach days it's a short drive to the glorious surfing found at Sennen which was recently voted in the top five UK beaches by the Times. The charming town of St Just is in walking distance or a five minute drive away and has an array of local shops, pubs, cafes and two great butchers. A good tip the fish and chips from Jeremy's in the square are not to be missed!

Originally Daisy Cottage would have been a miner’s cottage when this area was the epicentre of the world’s Tin mining industry. These days it’s simply the most idyllic spot to enjoy a holiday in an area of outstanding natural beauty where you are surrounded by breathtaking coastline and sleepy villages that time hasn’t yet caught up with.


Location

A tumbling stream dissects The Cot Valley as it runs westwards down to the Atlantic and this is a truly beautiful area. Lush with vegetation the valley seems to have its own micro climate and an abundance of plants and wildlife give this magical corner of west Cornwall a unique feel.  For wildlife lovers down on the coast at Porth Nanven seals are regular visitors and if you are lucky dolphins and basking sharks can be spotted too. Its a Birdwatchers paradise and among others Cornish choughs, buzzards and owls are regularly seen in the valley.


The nearby town of St Just is a friendly place that feels lost in time with a good selection of local shops, a deli, a butcher, four pubs and a small local supermarket for your everyday needs. Sennen with its glorious surfing beach is five minutes away and Portheras, a hidden and stunning locals cove is only ten minutes drive past Pendeen travelling east. Travelling back  within twenty minutes you can be in Marazion with its fabulous beach overlooking the famous St Michael's Mount, St Ives, Mousehole or Penzance. 


Living

Walking in through French doors you enter a very spacious open plan sitting and dining room. It’s a lovely social room, traditionally furnished and full of character. The dining area by the entrance to the kitchen has a table and six chairs. A step-up leads to the main sitting room which is split into two areas with plenty of seating to relax on. There are two comfy chesterfield sofas and an armchair as well as three additional armchairs. There is a newly installed woodburner at the far end, perfect for cosy evenings in and a large flat screen TV with Freeview. Stairs lead up the first floor to two of the bedrooms and a bathroom.


Cooking

The large kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need to cook up a feast and more. There is a gas hob and an electric double oven, a washer/dryer, fridge/freezer and a microwave oven.


Sleeping

A staircase off the kitchen leads up to a double bedroom with fitted wardrobe, a chest of drawers and two windows looking out towards the valley. From the sitting room a second staircase leads up to the first floor where there is a bright second double bedroom overlooking the gardens with a chest of drawers and freestanding wardrobe. Along the corridor there is a further small bedroom with two child's size beds. 


Bathing

There are two  bathrooms both with baths and electric showers over them. One is on the ground floor in the hallway by the kitchen and the other on the first floor past the third children's bedroom which is served by a separate WC next to it.


Gardens

The gardens run along and below Daisy Cottage are mostly lawned and are well established with a wonderful array of plants, trees and flowers.  Directly outside the cottage is paved with a step down to a patio area with a large bistro table and four chairs which is a lovely spot to listen to the birdsong and enjoy a morning coffee. A small foot bridge leads across the stream to a very private second sitting area which looks back towards the house and has a garden table and six chairs.
