Gwent Cottage sits in the pretty village of St Issey, just over three miles from holiday hotspot Padstow. Away from the hustle and bustle, this smart semi-detached stone cottage with an enclosed patio garden is the perfect retreat for couples, families and city escapees seeking some glorious R&R. It sits in the heart of the village, adjacent to a quaint 17th century inn which is dog-friendly and offers proper Cornish ales, a delicious home cooked menu, an impressive roster of live music and a log burning stove in winter. Tastefully modernised, interiors have a traditional Cornish cottage feel with a stone fireplace, thick pale walls and exposed beams. There are two bedrooms including a double with an en-suite bathroom and a single. Guests in the single bedroom have the use of a separate shower room. There is a comfortable sitting room with a roaring open fire, good art, books, games and a TV/DVD. The compact kitchen adjoins a large utilities area with a fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Eat at the chunky wooden dining table or outside in the suntrap patio garden which offers a good level of privacy and is bright and cheerful with flowers in summer. Just the property for families with children, there is a large entertainment room set beneath the eaves on the second floor.

Cornwall is a region full of history, culture and unique identity. So unique in fact that Cornwall has its very own language (Kernowek), flag (St Piran's Banner) and national anthem (Trelawney). In 2014 the UK government officially recognised the fine people of Cornwall as a national minority group, meaning that Cornish heritage and traditions now join the Irish, Scottish and Welsh as a protected Celtic group.
Cornwall is proudly known as the stunning setting of the popular BBC television series 'Poldark', starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson. Cornwall is also proud of its famous Cornish Pasty, but has another pastry dish to offer you, the Stargazy Pie! If you don't mind a few pilchards looking at you whilst you eat, then the Stargazy Pie is the pie for you. After a pasty or a pie, or both, you might fancy a pint and Cornwall has a great choice of locally produced beers to satisfy your thirst. Try an ale from the St Austell Brewery, Skinner's Brewery or the Rebel Brewing Company to name but a few of the fine ale producers in the region. Please remember to always drink responsibly.

We hope you enjoy your break in Cornwall!
