Holiday in Cornwall
The Old Dairy was ideal for us as it had downstairs ensuite bedrooms, very comfortable and situated in peaceful countryside. From the cottage there weren't a lot of dog walks but some within an easy drive. The owner was very accommodating when we were short of a bathmat and an outside light needed changing. As the weather was so good, it would have been nice to have some garden chairs in addition to the bench seat. However, we would recommend staying there for friends and families.
We enjoyed our stay at The Old Dairy, it is a spacious well equipped property in very pleasant surroundings. There is plenty of outside space to enjoy. It would be nice if there had been some gardens chairs available so we could take advantage of the sunny rear garden.
Extended Family break
The Dairy was ideal for extended family break, three grown up "children" with their partners and 4 grandchildren.
Facilities and equipment provided excellent. The large garden was brilliant for family games at beginning and end of day. Location good for Truro and the beaches of St Agnes and Perranporth, with St Ives and Eden Project nice days out.
Although in beautifully quiet countryside. Large Sainsbury and Aldi only 2 miles, ideal for large family shopping.
Whole group really enjoyed. Thanks
lovely welcome with fresh flowers,a pint of milk in the fridge. Couldnt have wished for a better place to stay. Clean,comfortable and spacious. Location for us was great for the purpose of our holiday.Highly recommended.
We had a lovely time, there’s just a couple of things could enhance the Old Dairy....definitely need larger towels & more than one each. In the kitchen champagne glasses (especially for Christmas, New Year & celebrations) are needed & more serving dishes would be nice. It was lovely & warm & the log burner was nice it’s just small details like no pan and brush that make a difference.
Lovely, spacious accommodation
Excellent location for lots of places of interest, and great accommodation!
For those wishing to sample the enormous strength of the Atlantic Ocean will do well to bring their surf boards to the Atlantic Coast. From Chapel Porth above Porthtowan, passing Perranporth, along to Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay at Newquay, up to Trevose Head and Polzeath past Padstow you will find all the best surfing beaches in the South West, of not only Cornwall but also England. The cliffs surrounding these beaches are nothing short of dramatic. In contrast to the gently rolling shores of the south coast, the north have dark mysterious drops where land has been eaten by the atlantic ocean, hence why the waves are far better here. Inland you will find Wheal Coates Mine, now looked after by the National Trust, part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site. St Agnes is part of only 12 sites in Cornwall awarded Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Newquay is not only famous for Fistral Beach, but Newquay Airport connects the county to places such as the Isles of Scilly, Edinburgh and Alicante. The Saints Way Trail is a 30 mile path from Padstow on the Atlantic Coast to Fowey on the South Coast. Padstow is more commonly known as Rick Stein country following the success of his numerous businesses in the town. Lucky really that the National Lobster Hatchery is just a stones throw away. Wadebridge, once a Market Town is now more widely known as being part of The Camel Trail, that takes the cyclist out to Padstow from the depths of Bodmin Moor.
Occupying a dramatic valley location with one of the most spectacular and beautiful beaches of the Atlantic Coast, Porthtowan has been drawing visitors for years to take advantage of its natural sun trap. A superb location for a holiday to Cornwall with a fine beach and close to good main roads means that you can easily explore the surrounding area on days that are not conducive to sitting on the beach.
Porthtowan has one of Cornwall's finest surfing waves. Producing good waves at all states of the tide, the wave is particularly good in an easterly or south easterly when it really pumps with some lovely hollow barrels. It is not for the faint hearted and beginners should be careful. An excellent surf school operates from the beach. At low tide the beach stretches down to St Agnes Head and Chapel Porth Beach where you will find a lovely National Trust Cafe full of warming hot chocolate and fabulous views.
The city of Truro is 4 miles away and has a wide selection of good shopping including a Tescos, Sainsburys, Marks & Spencer and many other high street outlets. There is also a cinema and a great selection of restaurants, pubs & cafes. The resort of Newquay is about 12 miles to the north with its spectacular surf beaches at Fistral & Watergate Bay. Jamie Oliver's "Fifteen" restaurant is located here. Padstow, with its fine selection of restaurants influenced by Rick Stein is just over 20 miles. Harbourside towns & villages such as Fowey, Falmouth & St Mawes are all within easy reach. For those flying to Cornwall, the airport is within easy reach.
The Cathedral City of Truro is in the heart of Cornwall and offers a wealth of facilities for the visitor. Dominated by the stunning cathedral, it is one of the south west's most attractive cities. Lemon Quay plays host to many events throughout the year including the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival in the Autumn and the famous Truro Fatstock Show just before Christmas. Regular farmers markets occur every Wednesdays & Saturday and there are also arts & craft markets on Saturdays.
There is a wonderful range of shopping for the visitor including all the regular high street stores, but Truro also has a wide range of more specialist stores. It really is worth a wander through the back streets and alleys to find some fabulous little boutiques.
Truro has a superb range of restaurants from Bustopher Jones & Mannings on Lemon Street to the always popular Pizza Express. There are lively bars, pubs & nightclubs including the superb Old Ale House, a busy Wetherspoons and the infamous L2 if you are so inclined! The Hall for Cornwall hosts everything from Shakespeare to rock concerts and the cinema on Lemon Street has all the latest releases.
