Tewennow Cottage is superbly positioned next to the sand dunes, tucked away along a scenic country lane in the hamlet of Ellenglaze. Nestled in rural bliss, it makes the perfect setting for couples to escape and relax in a timeless location. For beachcombers, walkers and golfers, the expansive golden beach, rugged coastal footpath and 18 hole links golf course at Holywell Bay (voted as the fourth best view in the country) are all within easy walking distance. Only two miles from Crantock, five from Newquay and eight miles from Perranporth, this stretch of coastline is renowned for its fabulous beaches and is a paradise for surfers and watersports enthusiasts. The cottage itself brims with charm, character and warmth, from the wisteria that climbs its exterior to the exposed beams and the sash windows found within its thick whitewashed stone walls. Supremely comfortable and tastefully furnished, the interior is arranged with a sitting room/diner and a well equipped kitchen on the ground floor and a spacious bedroom on the first floor, furnished with a king size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a bath and separate shower cubicle. The cottage has a garden to the rear with a split level patio which is a glorious sun-trap and perfect spot to dine alfresco style. A convenience store is within a short walk and a longer hike will take you to Smugglers Den, a popular pub/restaurant serving local ales and delicious hearty meals. Parking can be found in front of the cottage. Cosy and inviting, Tewennow Cottage is an excellent choice for a romantic break during any season.

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.
Here are just a couple of the great Cornish attractions you could visit:
We hope you enjoy your break in Cornwall!
