The cottages are comfortable and welcoming - each have their own individual charm and are well furnished and equipped, with central heating and wood fires making them warm and cosy for any season.

In the sitting rooms the comfortable sofas, chairs and woodfires (all except Roebuck) offer a taste of country living. The kitchens are fully equipped for those who enjoy cooking, whether its breakfast on the terrace on warm sunny mornings or a family dinner, together around the large dining table in the evening.

In the Bedrooms, the beds are made up with crisp, white cotton sheets. Bathrooms and en-suites are warm, clean and modern with fluffy towels supplied. Plus TV, DVD and iPod dock/CD player, books and games. Farm shop with supplies onsite

The sport and leisure facilities at Poltarrow have been especially created for guests looking for a relaxing holiday, but also for those wanting a little more activity.

The facilities are for the enjoyment of guests staying at Poltarrow and are situated a few minutes walk from the Cottages, but just far enough not to spoil the tranquility of your holiday home.

Indoor Swimming Pool
Understandably popular, the indoor swimming pool is at a constant temperature of 30 degrees celcius, making swimming a relaxing experience, just the thing for de-stressing. The pool is 10m long and 4m wide and a constant 1.4 m depth. Ideal for parents with small children. There is also a changing room and shower. For safety, access can only be obtained through a security system and is available to guests from 7am to 9.00pm. (except Saturday mornings when it is closed for cleaning) So perfect, whatever the season - whatever the weather. The swimming pool is available from Mid Feuary to the beginning of January.

Sports Hall
The large heated sports hall has a range of sports for most ages. Test your skills with a quiet game of short mat bowls or take a cue and stepup to the table for a game of pool. Table tennis, short tennis and badminton can be good fun, where you can improve on your footwork and racquet movement providing the opportunity for a vigorous workout.

Tumble Room
Specifically designed for the under 5's, where children can feel safe and secure. This is the perfect place to encourage imaginative minds to discover fantasy and fun. Soft building blocks, tunnels and slides make perfect hideaways, stimulating games, exercise and creative play.

The lake is fed from natural springs and has varying depths of water to accommodate the needs of rudd, perch, blue orf and of course the elusive carp. Experience the delight of sitting in the stillness by the waters edge, or on the lake in the rowing boat Jubilee, waiting for the "big one". Now's the time to get fishing.

Farm Trail
If you just want to relax, then why not stroll around the forty five acres of fields, passing the pond with appleyard, call duck, mandarin and carolina ducks. Through to the woodland where you can get closeup to the wildlife. Watch the resident buzzards soar above with their high pitched call, the statuesque heron standing on one leg, looking for his supper. You are certain to find something that will make your visit to Poltarrow special.

Don’t miss a chance to visit The Eden Project's indoor rainforest (+4 (0)1726 811911). It’s the largest in the world and makes a unique setting for seasonal concerts and gigs, with steamy jungles and waterfalls, an ice rink in the winter and year-round treetop walks.

More than just a garden, recovered and restored The Lost Gardens of Heligan near Mevagissey, is a garden for all seasons, so whether you plan to visit in the hazy buzz of mid-summer, or the tranquillity of winter, you are guaranteed a unique experience.

The twin harbours are bustling with busy fishing boats inging in the catch of the day whilst the bobbing pleasure boats ready to ferry trippers along the coast. The narrow streets satisfy those seeking souvenirs or a bite to eat.

Charlestown is one of Cornwall’s most photogenic villages due to its magnificently authentic Georgian harbour and resident fleet of magnificent sailing ships and has taken starring roles in over 25 TV series. If you time it right you might catch Poldark leaning over the wall!

The home of Daphne Du Maurier, the winding streets run along the river to the sea. Boat trips at the quayside take you up the river to Wind in the Willow country or the quay wall makes an ideal place for dangling crab lines. Shopping enthusiasts will discover buzzy boutiques whilst the other half can find refuge in viant cafes and restaurants.

Dating back to the 12th century and the stannary town of Cornwall, Lostwithiel is now a mecca for antique and vintage seekers and offers serious mooching territory with a plethora of eating places. For plant enthusiasts The Duchy Nursery is certainly worth a visit and the tea room provides an excellent sticky bun when sustenance is required.

With its crystal clear waters and remarkable views it is easy to see why Henry VIII built a defensive, coastal fort in St Mawes. A sanctuary for galleries and craft workshops St Mawes also has a fine selection of pubs and restaurants. Fishing trips can be arranged from the quayside when you may catch a glimpse of dolphins or seals if you are lucky.
