Silverstream Cottage, Hellandbridge


Sleeps:  6 (six)

Pets Allowed:  2  -  pets go free of charge!


This is a charming 17th-century cottage which lies in the picturesque Cornish hamlet of Hellandbridge.


Set deep in Cornish countryside between a stone medieval bridge (over the Camel River) and the Camel Trail, which passes the cottage directly, the location is ideal for both walkers and cyclists.


The cottage is surrounded by rolling countryside in fact, and there is even a large garden with patio & lawned area which is ideal for an evening barbecue or morning coffee overlooking the River Camel. Even though you are 'out in the sticks', there is still wifi available at the property, plus mod-cons like a dishwasher, tumble dryer and even a woodburner in it's spacious, beamed living room, so you can relax after your day on the trail! This property even has a separate little ‘snug’ for you to relax in.


Hellandbridge is close to many other popular visitor attractions in Cornwall (as well as some stunning beaches too of course) that this part of north Cornwall has to offer. Cornish seaside towns like Padstow (an array of shops, pubs and restaurants including Rick Stein’s famous seafood restaurant), Port Isaac (known for it's Doc Martin fame, the Fisherman's Friends singing on the quay and glorious walks along the coastpath), Polzeath (with its excellent sandy beach), the enigmatic Tintagel Castle (mystical castle of King Arthur), even the Eden Project on the south coast of Cornwall is less than 15 miles away.


All in all, Silverstream Cottage makes an excellent holiday base to explore both the north and south of Cornwall but lies far from the madding crowds!
