Nestled amongst the beautiful Kea plum orchards unique to this unspoilt part of Cornwall lies Pencreek; a magical bolt hole where you can indulge in casual luxury and serene water views. This really is a unique part of Cornwall, where wild orchards meet the waters edge. River views greet you from every room, and the comforting crackle and warmth from the wood burning stove make it a magical and intimate escape all year round. The double bedroom is luxuriously fitted out and boasts a modern open plan bathroom complete with romantic roll-top bath. Enjoy peaceful river views from the bath whilst still in complete privacy! The light and airy open plan living / dining room make the most of the beautiful views and offer every convenience as you would expect. The modern kitchen is fully equipped for self catering.

Ground Floor: Open plan living / dining area & kitchen.
First Floor: Double bedroom with Hypnos zip and link beds which can be made up as a 6' bed or as 3' single beds, TV, open plan bathroom & roll-top bath, separate shower. PLEASE NOTE THE CHROME FURNITURE HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH WOODEN FURNITURE. PHOTOS TO FOLLOW SHORTLY.
Exterior: There is a patio with external furniture and BBQ.

Facilities & Services
Heating is via central heating and the cosy wood burning stove. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a range of equipment including an electric oven & hob, kettle, toaster, fridge with small compartment freezer, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher & espresso machine. The lounge has a flat screen digital TV & DVD player. There is a music system with CD, Radio and iPod docking station. WiFi available at the property. There is a telephone for local and incoming calls. There is a hairdryer, iron & ironing board.

Miscellaneous
Electricity, heating, a basket of logs, bed linen & towels are all included but you will need to provide your own beach towels. There is enough parking space for 2 vehicles. Please note that access to the property is through a farm yard and along a levelled, but unmade farm track. Up to 2 dogs are allowed at an additional cost of £50 per dog / per week although please remember that you cannot leave dogs unattended in the cottage alone. A basket of logs are provided for the wood burner, thereafter available from the owner. Regrettably no smoking is allowed. There is a cot and high chair.

Extras
A welcome pack is provided in the cottage for your arrival, but also available as an extra (£30) is a very special wicker hamper containing Tregothnan produce including Kea plum jam, selection of teas and Housekeeper's biscuits. Also available is a stunning private tour of the Tregothnan Gardens (£70 per person). This tour is very special as the gardens are rarely open to the general public. The tour lasts around 2 hours and concludes with a Tregothnan cream tea. It is a very special treat!

Kayak hire is provided for cottages in Coombe. You can pre-book your kayak (£162 per kayak per week, £65 per day for a 1 person kayak) at the same time as your booking. Exploring the River Fal by kayak is a simply magical experience whilst you are in Coombe. In addition, the Estate has a rowing boat available to hire (£186 per week, £65 per day, max 4 person) if you would prefer a slightly more sturdy vessel for your adventures! A mooring directly in front of the cottage is also available to hire (£25 per week) for boats up to 15ft. For larger boats up to 25ft, there are three floating moorings which can be hired on request and subject to availability. When taking to the water, guests are able to explore Coombe on the Cowlands Creek - a unique and special estuary off the River Fal.

General Booking Information

£100 security deposit is required to be pre-authorised on your card.
Short breaks are available during quieter periods.
The city of Truro is only about a 10 minute drive 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 16 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. The yachting centres of Mylor, Falmouth & St Mawes are all within easy reach of the cottage. There is a watersports centre at nearby Loe Beach where you can learn to sail or windsurf. The nearby Roseland Area of Outstanding Beauty with its superb coastal walks is also a short drive away via the King Harry Ferry.

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 including Marks & Spencer, Tescos & Sainsburys, but also 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.

Gavin from London stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in September
Perfect cottage in a perfect location. Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Well equipped and organised ,with everything you could need. We took our own canoe, so it had the added bonus for us of providing a launching area just from the door- almost! There is also lots to do in the area. We note from the visitors book that many return, and we can see why. We'd love another holiday here.

Michael from Calne stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in April
The view is what hits you when you first arrive, the cottage is lovely and has everything you need. The peacefulness is relaxing with lots going on with the wildlife above and on the water. You are ideally situated to travel to most of the tourist attractions in Cornwall with the busy beaches in the north or the more secluded in the south. One of the best holidays we have had.

Roger from Frome stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in March
The cottage and location were superb. The cleanliness, maintenance and facilities in the cottage were also excellent. The lack of a toilet door is a problem; even people who are very close sometimes prefer a degree of privacy. Nevertheless this is a minor point in an otherwise wonderful cottage. However, the constant chain-sawing all day every day from nearby fields was a considerable problem for us. It meant it was impossible for us to sit outside during the day, and even inside the noise was an irritant. We would have liked to spend more time during the day at the cottage, but instead needed to get out to escape the invasive noise. Since the nearby land is, we understand, part of the estate which also owns the cottage, we would have thought this could have been avoided. If intensive tree felling is intended, then the cottage should not, in our opinion, be let at that time. We appreciate that this may not happen more than a few weeks each year (?); but nevertheless, this was our only week in a spot which would otherwise have been tranquil.

Ian from Truro stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 14 nights in February
Pencreek is a very secret place, a magical experience, it was a privilege living with unspoilt nature. We did not want to leave. The silence, the wading birds, the owls, rabbits, long tailed tits, jays and many more birds, plus a curlew. A hidden gem. Would return again and again if the loo had a door.

Jane from Southampton stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in October
We absolutely loved our stay at Pencreek. The cottage was lovely and its setting is amazing. We loved watching the birds feeding on the water and from the feeders just outside the cottage window. Best of all was the access to the creek itself - we took our kayak with us and were able to get out on the water and see Coombe from a different perspective. We had a very relaxing week - lots of walks but lots of cozying down by the fire. A really enjoyable holiday. The only issue we had was that there was nowhere to hang any clothing up or any drawer space. Whilst this wasn't a huge problem it did mean that we were literally living out of suitcases for the week. We are definitely planning a return visit.
Reply from Lucy SimpsonThank you so much for your lovely review - just a note to add for your next trip, there is a built in wardrobe with lots of hanging space and hangers in the bedroom, you just press the door to open!! We look forward to welcoming you back soon...

Melanie from Bristol stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in October
We've stayed at this very cosy cottage once before but stayed in other cottages owned by the family many times. They're all of the same high standard. Pencreek is secluded with many great walks. There's lots of local wildlife too. Everything you can possibly need is here including games, DVDs, coffee machine, even washing powder! Nothing's too much trouble and the family are only too happy to help with anything. I'll be back there next year for sure!!

Have stayed at Pencreek twice now, & will definately return again. Beautiful cottage in perfect tranquil spot. Wakeing up to the view of the creek each morning is wonderful. Everything you could possibly need is there for all weather conditions... Thoroughly enjoyed lazing in the hammock surrounded by birds singing & bees buzzing. Although the cottage is lovely & secluded, its only minutes away from Truro & shops, & ideal for visiting any coast . Truly a Cornish gem!!

Martin from Wotton Under Edge stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in May
Wonderful holiday cottage, perhaps a little pricey. However would be happy to revisit and maybe try one of the other properties on offer in Coombe. The location of the cottage with the changing views due to the differing tides was special.

Simon from Newcastle stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in March
An ideal holiday location, very quiet and peaceful. Lots of lovely walks and villages nearby. Very good central location in Cornwall for exploring the county. The cottage was immaculate. Very comfortable. A bumpy track down to the cottage from the farm - but totally worth it! It was like going from home to home! Lovely seating area outside of cottage which we found ideal for breakfast. We also particularly loved the hammock for relaxing. Good location near to Truro eg for getting to shops etc.

Angela from London stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in December
We had a wonderful week here over New Year and it was exactly what we hoped for. The cottage at the end of a track right by the water's edge felt miles away from the rest of the world, and yet was easy reach to all the amenities of Truro. We thoroughly enjoyed cooking every night using the large well equipped kitchen, and made it cosy with a warm log fire despite the wind and lashing rain outside. The cottage had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay and given the time of year and weather we spent much time inside! We could tell that it would also be lovely in the summer with the patio to enjoy being outside and some great sounding walks from the doorstep - we'd love to return. The one and only downside was that the only toilet in the cottage is in the open plan bathroom attached to the bedroom upstairs - but given how great it was in every other way this was a very small price to pay. Thank you to the team looking after Pencreek Cottage!

Susan from Oundle stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 5 nights in November
Pencreek is located at the end of a long track and is right on the estuary. The cottage has been tastefully refurbished with the bedroom and bathroom taking up the first floor and lounge/dining area and separate kitchen downstairs, plenty of room for two people. There's a tv (free view), DVD player, radio, dvd's, books and games, so plenty to do. There are central heating radiators and a log burner, a basket of logs is provided (extra bags available on an honour system @£5 per bag). We had the fire going in the evening on our 5 night stay and used an additional 6 bags so the ambience isn't cheap! Bed comfort is always down to personal preference, I found the mattress firm but comfortable. If you're up for a bit of isolation this cottage is for you, there are nearby cottages but you have plenty of privacy. It would be lovely sitting outside on a summer evening watching the tide come in, very peaceful and quiet. The kitchen is well equipped with all the cooking utensils you will need. Some places we've stayed at in the past provide various levels of consumables and whilst laundry and dishwasher tablets, cloths, tea, milk and biscuits are provided you'll need to bring your own soap, shampoo, toilet rolls, sugar, coffee, cooking oil, salt and pepper with you. Not a problem when you know in advance and Truro is only about 5 miles away. Worth knowing that our mobile phones couldn't get any reception (O2) and the wifi signal is very poor (0.25 mbs for the tech nerds). But hey, you're here to get away from the world hey? This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location, we hope to return again.

Guest from Aylesbury stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in August
Our stay at Pencreek cottage was fantastic. The cottage is beautiful and better equipped than any other I have stayed in before - like a home from home. The location is absolutely stunning - peaceful, ever changing with the tides and private. It truly is a perfect escape - and yet only 5 to 10 minutes by car to Truro. You will struggle to find a more idyllic property in a more idyllic location in Cornwall, I am sure.

If you want to relax then this is a great place to do it. Such a peaceful location. Cottage was comfortable and the kitchen had every thing you need. Bed was comfortable and big, bathroom was nice. Some great walks on your doorstep, good for us as we have dogs. Garden not secure so if you have a dog that wanders off you need to beware. Would stay again as we loved the location so much. Lucy rang on the Sunday morning to check everything was ok, I thought that was a really nice touch.

Our second Autumn visit and not disappointed again. Perfect hideaway, luxury retreat for two plus dog. Never ending changing vista of the tidal creek with its wildlife, sounds and smells (nice ones!). Every aspect thought through with great care to provide a perfect cottage and even improvements on last year. Highly recommended.

Lovely location, lovely cottage. a very relaxing holiday.Some lovely walks our dog had a real holiday she loved the seclusion as much as us. It just may have helped having a small gate each side to keep her in and away from eating the plums. Otherwise a perfect place, hope e can find time to go back soon.

Guest from Kendal stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in August
The simple addition of a food processor ( the only thing that was missing) would probably result in me moving in permanently and forcing the estate to evict me and my husband failing to recover from the humiliation of this making the the front page of The Western Morning News. Our 3rd trip to this idyllic spot - 10 minutes to Truro and 10 minutes walk to what must be England's smallest village green at Cowlands. Take a walk further up the hill from there and turn left onto an unmarked road and find yourself the opposite side of the creek looking back from Roundwood Quay. Perfect dog walking and fishing and possible to walk to the gardens at Trelissick . A wonderful uncluttered corner of Cornwall marvellously served by these beautifully appointed cottages. I would personally have added a downstairs loo. A true loo with a view upstairs but less open plan please. Binoculars would be a thoughtful addition for potential twitchers. I would happily write more but really don't want to encourage more bookings and restrict my inevitable return.

Guest from Wirral stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in May
What a great getaway location Hidden away down a little farm track and located on the edge ( yes - the edge of the estuary ) Secure gate to keep little explorers and dogs (X2) out of the water at high tide and to keep the visiting swan out of the garden each day Cottage has all you need for a relaxing stay and please be warned - there is no noise at night, other than the owls and bats flying around and no light pollution Estuary is fully lit up if you arrive on a full moon and clear skies Definitely one downside is that when you return home you won't be able to lye on you pillow and look out on the estuary as the sun rises ! Pls note that the cottage comes with a real warning that "you may not want to go home at the end of your stay" What a place, location and thanks Pencreek for a great week I am sure that our little baby girl ( 26weeks old ) will definitely remember this week away for ever ( we will ask her in a few years ? ) Mike, Sue, Alex and Springers Toby & Sam

13 months between stays at this wonderful cottage is far too long. However, we returned and for one week we truly believe that this is our own home from home. It is in the most amazing location settled amongst Kea plum trees and only 10 feet from the waters edge. To sit in the bath and watch the tide ebb and flo is unique!

Guest from Malvern stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in March
The cottage is in a wonderful location by the side of a creek and offers privacy and peace. Everything is thought of and it is good to know that there is help and support if needed - this is not always the case.

Guest from Exeter stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in March
We found Pencreek by accident but are very glad we did. Very comfortable and well specified cottage in an idyllic location. Lucy, owners representative, helpful and attentive. Lots of walks in easy reach particularly liked the walk to Trelissick and to the ferry through the National Trust woods. We purchased a Mussel Card for public transport and did not use the car all week, though it is a walk to any form of public transport!. Punchbowl and Ladle in Penlewey a nice pub with good food and service as well as being dog friendly. Sat in London writing this and wish I was back in front of the cottage sat watching the creek! We will hopefully be returning in the future.

Guest from Bellingham stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 9 nights in January
Pencreek cottage is an ideal spot for relaxing and getting away from the rest of the world. Very snug even in the strongest of storms. Hearing the sound of curlews and owls every evening was a delight. We liked the cottage very much as it was the perfect location for us. The location was as private as you can get I imagine. But in the interest of a complete review, here are some suggestions for improvements that would make it even better in the future. First of all, please get rid of the chrome and glass furniture. All of it please. Not only is it totally without charm and doesn't match the Cornish character of the cottage. Even putting a cup of coffee on the table can produce a jarring sound. Wooden tables would be so much better. I liked the location of this cottage better than Bethel or Turnapenny but that would put us off from renting this particular cottage again unless it is changed. The mirrors are also not very nice. One full length one would work. A small desk would be ideal because I found myself wanting to write after a few days there and it was either sit at the aforementioned chrome table or on the couch to do it. Since the cottage is supposed to only be for two persons that shouldn't be so difficult to arrange. The kitchen door appears to be waterlogged and is a bit of a tight fit. The mattress was sagging in the middle (once again also do not like a chrome bed) and should be replaced. Otherwise everything in the cottage was just right and with just a few changes we would stay there again. Or we might try another cottage just for variety.
Reply from Lucy SimpsonDear Mr Brown, Thank you for your review-we welcome all feedback and ideas as this ensures we continue to keep our service and facilities continually at a high standard. We will of course investigate and hope to welcome you back to Wild Escapes in the future. Many thanks once again. Kind regards, Lucy

Guest from Tavistock stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 4 nights in December
We stayed at Riverside in June and Pencreek last weekend both lovely in different ways. I find it hard to say anything negative as they are the best cottages we have ever stayed in, Lucy does an amazing job. This long weekend booking was just perfect. If you wanted a tiny bit of input then the flowers and milk were very welcome but considering how isolated the property is to a local shop we would have been grateful for a few tea bags for our arrival drink. We will be booking again next year. Thank you

Guest from Glossop stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in October
Did a lot of research to find somewhere where we could feel 'away from it all' with no one else near, fantastic location and a little bit special to feel pampered and Pencreek Cottage didn't fail to deliver. Ridiculously beautiful location, but actually not too isolated as Truro only 15 minutes drive away. The tidal creek provided a continuously changing, idyllic landscape. Found minutes slipped away just gazing out from the cottage. Didn't close the curtains once, waking with dawn (right time of year for that at 7am!) and going to bed after a luxurious foamy bath soak and glowing log fire. Perfect for our dog too -easy to keep clean floors and kitchen for him to sleep snugly in at night. We walked locally and around the Fal estuary and Roseland peninsula every day with stunning scenery and lovely villages, ferries and places to eat. Of course, the beaches of North Cornwall only half hour away too. We ordered the Tregothnan Estate hamper which arrived at the cottage a few days late due to some items being in short supply, but was worth the wait. All in all, a perfect, tranquil, relaxing cottage and location. Highly recommended.

Guest from Waterlooville stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in July
Enjoyed our stay very much,although we felt more could be made of the outside space,if you sat at the table and chairs you could not see the river which defeated the object really. We really enjoyed our tour of the gardens at Tregothan,it was a shame the tide was against us, so we could not go by boat.

Guest from Exebridge stayed at Pencreek Cottage for 7 nights in June
An absolutely charming little cottage in a super position overlooking the creek. More suited to a younger couple due to hairy private access road, gradient on the car parking area and stepped loose gravel footpath and rather open toilet facilities! Very well equipped kitchen, although the work surfaces are not very practical being lightly stained natural wood (- do not put hot plates on these as we did as it will leave a mark)! Unfortunately, the quality of the TV and audio equipment does not match that of the cottage but on the whole, a very pleasant stay.

We had a lovely stay at Pencreek and was very impressed with the standard of the whole place. The weather was fairly good and the walks around Pencreek are really good.
Mr Mitchell, Sep 2012
Everything about Pencreek was perfect! From booking to leaving and now the memories. We had the most amazing holiday ever. Not sure if we want to tell others about it - we want to keep it to ourselves!!! But we can't keep quiet.
