Region: Cornwall’s visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain’s premier holiday destinations.
Town: Located on the A390 in the heart of the pretty Cornish countryside is the small village of East Taphouse. Ideally situated for exploring Devon and Cornwall, this pretty little settlement is within easy reach of the market towns of Liskeard and Lostwithiel, as well as the old fishing ports of Looe, Polperro and Fowey. The region is also home to a great number of excellent beaches and coves, whilst the rugged moor at Bodmin is only 10 minutes drive to the north. The magnificent tropical biodomes of the Eden Project are well worth visiting as are the National Trust properties of Lanhydrock and Mount Edgecombe houses. Also of interest in the local area is the town of Bodmin itself, offering a steam railway and the magnificent tall-ship harbour at Charlestown.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

My Partner and I stayed here in September it was easy to find and the accomodation itself was priceless it was clean throughout and felt very much home from home. There is a lovely patio and it was lovely to watch the horses in a nearby field. Due to the location it was not far to get to anywhere which made it Ideal to visit places like the Eden Project and other coastal resorts. We thoroughly had a great time and will most certainly be recomemended the cottage to our friends and will will be back, thank you Sykes!!!

The holiday with a family member was for the purpose of rest, quiet & recharge batteries, which was certainally able to do in the beautiful cottage & gaden, horse paddocks, fields & great wildlife! The family member has terminal cancer, so it was perfect for us to relax. Very friendly owner & the cottage was perfect.
