Why G.A. Fraser chose Towednack

You can re- live your childhood memories,visit the places you went to then ,or sit and watch the birds and wildlife or fish in the ponds for carp and tench,paint or take photo,s of the lovely surroundings,it is only a short drive from Lands End, Eden Project and many beautiful gardens,Flambards for the children and of course our fantastic beaches,certain times of the year you can catch sight of Basking sharks at Sennen cove. Delicious food served in the 60+ restaurants in and around St.Ives,speciallising in locally caught fish and shellfish,and fantastic sunsets out to sea.

Cornish Country Retreat

  • 4 of 5

This is a really lovely cottage, clean, modern, comfortable and well designed. The isolated country location was perfect for us. There are great walks from the cottage and a wonderful view from the top of the hill. A short drive easily reaches the best of Cornwall from here, from Lands End to the Eden Project.
