Overview

About the property

Primrose Cottage in Treyarnon Bay, Cornwall, England

A favourite property with our guests who return year after year. This gorgeous 400yr old cottage has everything you could wish for. It is only a 10 minute walk to the golden sands at Treyarnon Bay – a wonderful family beach great for surfing and exploring the rock pools. One of the best beaches on the north coast.

Primrose Cottage is private and peaceful and with all its charms and character this property is perfect for families and those just wishing to get away from it all.

Nearby in Padstow, just 3 miles away there are plenty of shops, galleries and restaurants or there is a choice of good restaurants in the local village of St Merryn, only 1 mile away.

Country kitchen with Aga and full sized electric double oven

Cosy living room with seating for 10 and woodburner

Light and airy dual aspect bedroom

Large patio overlooking the garden and fields to sea

Being an old cottage there are exposed beams and in the kitchen the ceiling is fairly low and some of the doorways can prove a challenge for our taller visitors.

Why Timothy Abbott - Cornish Seaview Cottages chose Saint Merryn

A fabulous old character property perfect for large family groups only 5 - 10 minute walk to the beach. Surrounded by fields Primrose Cottage is in a fabulous, peaceful location, yet close to the beach. We have spent many a wonderful family holiday here and would love to share this beautiful property with you.

What makes this house unique

In a quiet rural location yet close to the beach and only 10 minutes in the car to Padstow. The best of both worlds!

Warm and cosy in winter with the woodburner and Aga but also wonderful in Summer entertaining outside in the spacious garden and patio.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is the fourth year running that we have booked Primrose Cottage and we have already booked for next year - this alone indicates how happy we are with the location and facilities The cottage is near Rick Stein's Cornish Arms Pub and we have always been impressed by the menu and quality of food and service there It is also near some very nice beach bays that are dog friendly at this time of year We spend our days visiting the many 'attractions' Cornwall has to offer and the cottage is a lovely peaceful, relaxing place to come back to each evening

We felt ourselves really relaxing in this cottage. It feels luxury and had everything we needed. The kids had a good time at the football table, nice walks in the area.

Clean, beautiful and well stocked cottage.
