Unity Cottage, A Delightful Pet Friendly Barn Conversion near Truro, Cornwall

Bedrooms 3
Property type barn
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Overlooking the Poldice Valley. 3 Bed, Sleeps 5, Log Burner, Ideally located

Overlooking rolling countryside Unity Cottage is a beautifully renovated single story barn conversion offering a perfect touring base with easy access to beaches, towns and theme parks, an ideal place to explore the whole county of Cornwall.

With stunning views over the Poldice Valley near Chacewater, the three bedroom semi-detached cottage was once used to store carts and tractors and has been sympathetically converted to keep its exposed beamed ceilings, mellow external stonework and granite doorsteps.

Unity Cottage has a light, sunny kitchen with patio doors opening out onto a decked area which in turn looks over the valley. There is a small paved/pebbled garden area tucked away to the side of the property which although is not totally private is an added space to enjoy the far reaching views and maybe fire up a BBQ. From here, there is also access to a large unsupervised trampoline if relaxing and taking in the view is just not enough! A wood burning stove in the open-plan living/dining room adds to the oil fired underfloor heating to provide warmth during the chilly autumnal and winter nights. The main bedroom has a kingsize bed and an en-suite shower room with WC and basin. The family bathroom has a bath with thermostatically controlled shower over, WC, basin and heated towel rail. There are two further bedrooms a Twin and a Single both with characters features such as exposed beams and vaulted ceilings.

Walkers will be delighted with the myriad of public footpaths and bridleways running near to the cottage - especially the popular coast to coast cycle track which passes within half a mile of the cottage on its way from Devron Creek to Porthtreath Harbour. If you enjoy cycling, bikes can be hired to explore the tramway at Bissoe Cycle Hire, three miles from the cottage.

The village of Chacewater, one mile away, has a choice of two traditional pubs, a small selection of shops, a fish and chip shop, playing field, bowling green and a doctors surgery. Unity Cottage is also a perfect base for exploring further afield. Truro just 6 miles away, has an intriguing and eclectic mix of art galleries, bars, restaurants, nightclubs as well as a cinema, theatre, cathedral and museum, making it a year round destination. A city steeped in history and awe inspiring architecture, there is plenty to see and do. Whether you are keen to shop, dine with friends, visit the gardens, an event or simply meander through the Georgian streets, a holiday to Cornwall is not complete without a trip into its capital city.

Unity Cottage is just 6 miles from the long sandy beach at Porthtowan, 7 miles from the quaint village of St Agnes and 8 miles from either the maritime capital of Cornwall - Falmouth on the south coast or Perranporth on the north.

Accommodation: Ground floor: One step into the open-plan living/dining room with woodburning stove, dining table and chairs, CD Player and TV with freeview and DVD. Two Steps with handrail down into the kitchen with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Bedroom 1 with Kingsize bed and en-suite shower room, WC and basin. Bedroom 2 with Twin beds, Bedroom 3 with one single bed, Bathroom with shower over bath, WC, Basin and heated towel rail. There is parking facilities for two cars but more may be possible by prior agreement. Pets are more than welcome but will need to be happy to meet our 2 miniature horses and Lilly our young Cockerpoo!

On arrival we supply Scones, Clotted cream, Jam and butter along with a pint of milk, tea and coffee so you can get your stay off to a good start with a fresh Cornish Cream Tea. If your still peckish after that, a fresh Pasty is available locally to really fill you up. We also provide a complimentary basket of logs for the fire and extra bags can be purchased on site if you run out.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at all. Maybe you have a strange and unusual pet or you have 5 adults and a baby, whatever the question, just ask and we will do our best to be as accommodating as possible and try and make Unity Cottage right for your stay in our gorgeous county of Cornwall.

Unity Cottage has the benefit of 'Fresh Cornish Spring Water' on tap (Bore hole/Well water) It is very fresh and tasty and is UV treated but in line with regulations we advise anyone making baby milk to use bottled water. This is obviously advisory and it is the guests choice if they are comfortable using it.

From arrival and throughout our stay we thoroughly enjoyed being in this cosy, comfortable and very well appointed cottage. If you have seen this place advertised and are thinking of booking - go ahead, do it; you will not regret it.

You have everything you need here for the perfect self catering experience. Location is excellent with Redruth and Truro minutes away in the car for shops, take aways etc, yet the cottage is tucked away and so peaceful. There are lovely beaches within a short drive during which you pass great pubs and eateries on route.

Karyn, the owner, could not have been more helpful in making sure we were completely comfortable.

I cannot think of a single negative, well, apart from you'll hate to have to leave!!

Great cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

From booking to arrival Karyn made everything super easy. The cottage is absolutley lovely and has lovely views. It is very well equipped. We stayed over Christmas and Karyn had decorated the cottage and we even had personalised Christmas decorations. Lots of great walks from the door. Perranporth and surrounding beaches only a short drive away. Highly recommended!

Peace and tranquility

This is a lovely cottage, beautifully fitted out, and wonderfully warm. The area is set deep into farmland so is peaceful. The owner is kind and friendly.

I thoroughly recommend this cottage and will look to stay there again in future.

Awesome Property in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Unity Cottage is fantastically well equipped, with lovely hosts who greeted us on arrival and showed us around the property. A home away from home with everything you could possibly need for your stay. With three bedrooms (an en suite double, a twin bedded and a single) makes a comfortable stay for all the family. The cottage is situated in a great location for all areas of Cornwall (at around an hour to most destinations). We would happily stay at this cottage again.
