Situated in a sleepy village within the “seven bays” area of North Cornwall. The quaint harbour town of Padstow and the surf capital of Newquay are both within a 15 minute drive.

The wonderful beaches of Porthcothan Bay and Bedruthan Steps are only 2 miles away.

On a clear night you can see thousands of stars and hear the waves breaking in the distance.

About James Allen

I run a successful landscaping and stonework company in Bristol.

James Allen purchased this cottage in 2015

Why James Allen chose Saint Ervan

Visited the seven bays area in June 2014, considered a "buy to let" property in Bristol to act as a pension but fell in love with the North Cornwall area.

Found a house that needed a huge renovation and managed to secure it and complete the works. Amazing location and we re-used original materials where ever possible. I particularly love the unique original doors throughout the house.

What makes this cottage unique

30 min walk to the beach through a wooded valley with bubbling stream. Quiet little hamlet with friendly locals. At night the sky is fall of stars and if the wind is in the right direction you can hear the waves breaking on the nearby beaches. Amazing

Ideal position for the best beaches in Cornwall!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely character cottage with plenty of space for six of us plus dog! Ideal location for the seven bays and Newquay airport, very quite village but close to St Merryn and Padstow.Well equiped kitchen dining area and lounge, lovely bedrooms and great bathroom and shower room! Added bonus was the lovely garden.

North Cornwall Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A very cosy cottage which we all found to have a totally relaxing atmosphere. Located in a very peaceful and tranquil hamlet, the cottage had everything you could need. Even the garden was a nice place to sit and listen to the birdsong. Lots of things to do close by. We walked to Porthscothan Beach, went to the pub there and ate, did another walk to Bedruthan Steps which was spectacular and also spent some time in Padstow. A great base for a short break but perhaps we will stay longer next time! And dog friendly too which was ideal!!

Owner James was very helpful and quick to respond when we contacted him, so we will return I’m sure. Five stars from me!! * * * * *

Great escape from it all at Pucara

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little house in the sleepy, but idyllic hamlet of Penrose. Perfectly kitted out kitchen and ideal sitting room. Bedrooms are an excellent size, with three comfy double beds and an additional single in one room. Lots of tellys! Two bathrooms are on the ground floor - fine for us, but probably challenging for those with mobility problems. Cake on arrival was a bonus!

Really great garden with rural views and excellent walking for dog owners. As only 5 minutes from the beaches it is perfect for exploring the seven bays, although we tend to stick to one!
