In the sitting room the comfortable sofas, chairs and woodfire offer a taste of country living. The kitchen is fully equipped for those who enjoy cooking, whether its breakfast on the terrace on warm sunny mornings or a family dinner, together around the large dining table in the evening.

There are three bedrooms - A 5' double bedded room and en-suite bathroom and two twin bedded rooms and second bathroom with shower.

For guests with young children we are able to offer - wooden cot, highchair, stairgate as well as a baby monitor, steriliser, socket covers, plastic table cloth, blackout blinds, plastic bowls and cutlery.

Facilities

The sport and leisure facilities at Poltarrow have been especially created for guests looking for a relaxing holiday, but also for those wanting a little more activity.

The facilities are for the enjoyment of guests staying at Poltarrow and are situated a few minutes walk from the Cottages, but just far enough not to spoil the tranquility of your holiday home.

Indoor Swimming Pool

Understandably popular, the indoor swimming pool is at a constant temperature of 30 degrees celcius, making swimming a relaxing experience, just the thing for de-stressing. The pool is 10m long and 4m wide and a constant 1.4 m depth. Ideal for parents with small children. There is also a changing room and shower. For safety, access can only be obtained through a security system and is available to guests from 7am to 9.00pm. (except Saturday mornings when it is closed for cleaning) So perfect, whatever the season - whatever the weather. The swimming pool is available from Mid February to the beginning of January.

Sports Hall

The large heated sports hall has a range of sports for most ages. Test your skills with a quiet game of short mat bowls or take a cue and step up to the table for a game of pool. Table tennis, short tennis and badminton can be good fun, where you can improve on your footwork and racquet movement providing the opportunity for a vigorous workout.

Tumble Room

Specifically designed for the under 5's, where children can feel safe and secure. This is the perfect place to encourage imaginative minds to discover fantasy and fun. Soft building blocks, tunnels and slides make perfect hideaways, stimulating games, exercise and creative play.

Fishing

The lake is fed from natural springs and has varying depths of water to accommodate the needs of rudd, perch, blue orf and of course the elusive carp. Experience the delight of sitting in the stillness by the waters edge, or on the lake in the rowing boat Jubilee, waiting for the "big one". Now's the time to get fishing.

Farm Trail

If you just want to relax, then why not stroll around the forty five acres of fields, passing the pond with appleyard, call duck, mandarin and carolina ducks. Through to the woodland where you can get closeup to the wildlife. Watch the resident buzzards soar above with their high pitched call, the statuesque heron standing on one leg, looking for his supper. You are certain to find something that will make your visit to Poltarrow special.

Local Attractions and Things to Do:

For Garden Lovers, Walkers, Foodies, Shoppers, Museum Wanderers, Art Lovers, Toe Dippers and Surfers, all things nautical, the list is endless.

Cornwall is the stuff that makes for perfect holiday memories...

All within 30 minutes drive from Poltarrow...

Don’t miss a chance to visit The Eden Project's indoor rainforest (+4 (0)1726 811911). It’s the largest in the world and makes a unique setting for seasonal concerts and gigs, with steamy jungles and waterfalls, an ice rink in the winter and year-round treetop walks.

More than just a garden, recovered and restored The Lost Gardens of Heligan near Mevagissey, is a garden for all seasons, so whether you plan to visit in the hazy buzz of mid-summer, or the tranquillity of winter, you are guaranteed a unique experience.

Mevagissey

The twin harbours are bustling with busy fishing boats bringing in the catch of the day whilst the bobbing pleasure boats ready to ferry trippers along the coast. The narrow streets satisfy those seeking souvenirs or a bite to eat.

Charlestown

Charlestown is one of Cornwall’s most photogenic villages due to its magnificently authentic Georgian harbour and resident fleet of magnificent sailing ships and has taken starring roles in over 25 TV series. If you time it right you might catch Poldark leaning over the wall!

Fowey

The home of Daphne Du Maurier, the winding streets run along the river to the sea. Boat trips at the quayside take you up the river to Wind in the Willow country or the quay wall makes an ideal place for dangling crab lines. Shopping enthusiasts will discover buzzy boutiques whilst the other half can find refuge in vibrant cafes and restaurants.

Lostwithiel

Dating back to the 12th century and the stannary town of Cornwall, Lostwithiel is now a mecca for antique and vintage seekers and offers serious mooching territory with a plethora of eating places. For plant enthusiasts The Duchy Nursery is certainly worth a visit and the tea room provides an excellent sticky bun when sustenance is required.

St Mawes

With its crystal clear waters and remarkable views it is easy to see why Henry VIII built a defensive, coastal fort in St Mawes. A sanctuary for galleries and craft workshops St Mawes also has a fine selection of pubs and restaurants. Fishing trips can be arranged from the quayside when you may catch a glimpse of dolphins or seals if you are lucky.

For Hikers, Bikers, Scramblers and Ramblers - Fishing, Crabbing, Swimming and Splashing

Culture Seekers, Garden Sneekers. Readers and Eaters Bon Appetit!

Whether you join us in the Summer months or the quieter Spring and Autumn, you’ll find masses to do.

All within an hours drive of Poltarrow you will find...

St. Michaels Mount

 A fairytale castle sitting in the sea, stroll over the causeway at low tide and come back by boat – it’s like being abroad for the day.

St Ives and The Tate

 Where culture meets the beach. When you’ve done the swimming and splashing, take a break, visit one of the exhibitions at The Tate, but don’t forget the remarkable Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden.

Minack Theatre

 Honed out of rock sits the open-air theatre, watch Shakespeare or G & S Pirates of Penzance with a backdrop of Caribbean blue sea.

The Lizard

 The most southerly place in the UK. Strike out on foot along the point, but make sure you take the camera for the much photographed Kynance Cove. Lunch has to be one of Anne’s Pasties (with the reputation of being the best).

Falmouth

 All things nautical can be found in Falmouth. For wannabe Sea Dogs, the maritime museum is a super day out for families. Great boat trip up the Carrick Roads (actually a river) with stop offs at Trelissick Gardens, St Mawes and Truro.

Padstow and Port Isaac

 A busy town alongside a working port and a dream destination for foodies. Take a ferry across to Betjamin Country or a drive up the coast to the home of Doc Martin and Fishermans Friends singing on the beach.

Tintagel

 Best foot forward for a hike across the cliffs to the ruins of King Arthur’s birthplace. The scenery is spectacular so a pair of binoculars is essential and nowhere beats watching the sunset on the North Coast.

Looe and Polperro

 Chocolate box lids and jigsaws come to mind when you visit these pretty places. Looe with its famous Banjo Pier and St Georges Island. Just a few miles down the coast and it’s like taking a step back in time with the traffic free streets of Polperro.

Whatever kind of holiday you plan you can find loads of suggestions and help.
