Pollywinky Cottage is a traditional terraced cottage, situated in the sleepy hamlet of Treknow perched high on Cornwall's breathtaking north coast. Only a few minutes from your doorstep and you find yourself on the coastal footpath where there are endless miles of stunning scenery waiting to be discovered, or take the stroll down to the lane and across the fields to the golden sands at Trebarwith Strand popular with both surfers and families alike. Retaining much of its original charm and character, Pollywinky has a home-from-home feeling with its cosy wood-burning stove and comfortable furnishings. Outside the small enclosed garden is the perfect spot to sit back, relax and take in the views of the village and the open countryside beyond.
For days out you are spoilt for choice. Take a short drive to the village of Tintagel to be enchanted by Arthurian myth and legend or visit the ancient fishing port of Boscastle, which amongst other things has a fabulous farm shop and cafe. Port Isaac, of 'Doc Martin' fame, offers narrow streets, quirky shops, a great choice of cafes, bars and restaurants and on summer evenings live singing from the 'Fisherman's Friends' and for more beach days Daymer Bay and Polzeath are an absolute must. If you need to refuel the popular Port William pub, perched above the beach at Trebarwith Strand, and the charming Mill House Inn are both within walking distance, so what more could you want? This really is the perfect retreat to explore all the delights that north Cornwall has to offer.
