A brilliant base for a classic Cornish summer holiday.  This is your perfect home from home cottage set in a quiet rural village.   There’s a large south facing garden with views over Godolphin Hill.  A choice of fantastic beaches all within a ten minute drive – Perranuthnoe, Praa Sands, Marazion, Hayle and many more.  St Ives is also just 20 minutes away.

Saturday Changeover

4 Bedrooms / 2 Bathrooms

Open Fire

Large Sunny Garden


Regret no pets

Fourways is well located to visit the north and the south coast.  One day can be spent on the lovely Perranuthnoe beach, the next on a trip to the fantastic St Michael’s Mount and another wondering the cobbled streets of St Ives.

Godolphin House and its beautiful woods and hills are just minutes up the road.  From the top of the hill you can see both coasts -  Mounts Bay in one direction and St Ives Bay in the other.

Should there be rain (dare we say it) the awesome Country Skittles is close by – there are skittles, a rifle range, air hockey and much more – oh and a licenced bar!

Of all the places in Cornwall we have stayed this has been 100% the nicest. Extremely family friendly, our 4 year old particularly enjoyed the garden and Wendy house whilst we spent our nights playing the extremely large variety of games. Overall this has been one of our best experiences in Cornwall to date! Thank-you we will be back. - Nicholson August 2016

The house was clean and comforting. The garden was a perfect suntrap and brilliant for the kids to play safely! The whole holiday was the highlight of the year! - Trevor August 2016

Location, garden and the size of the property was great. Burridge - August 2015
