Blythe Cottage is our home from home. We've owned the cottage for about 15 years and are regular visitors. We love the peace and solitude of the location, watching the wildlife and daily ebb & flow of the tides. The views from the cottage over the water are very special. Malpas is a small village with a local pub (The Heron) which serves good food. There is a boat ferry service 1 minute from the property that runs throughout the spring & summer months and is great for exploring the local area from the water. There are also beautiful woodland & creekside walks from the front door. We know its a special place as guest often come back time & time again. And if you do want to explore the county you will find Malpas a great starting point. You're only a couple of miles from Truro, the main city of Cornwall with great shopping & restaurants, and the beautiful (but very different) North & South coastlines are almost equidistant from the cottage, so you can take your pick depending on the weather & your mood. Please be aware that dogs regularly stay at the cottages. We do ask that they are never left at home unattended though.
I/we are a family of 3 with a dog. I have 3 older children who have all grown up holidaying in the cottage over the years. We've lived in cities most of our working lives and have come to appreciate some where to escape to, the benefits of some peace and quiet, fresh air and calmness. That's why we love Cornwall so much. The air is clearer, the people very friendly and scenery rugged and unspoiled.
Blythe Cottage has much to offer and I've listed a few things that we've enjoy doing. Walks- Malpas is blessed with great walks from the front door step. They are perfect if you have furry friends or for a bit of exercise. You'll discover woodland & creekside walks left or right out the cottage. Beaches- Cornwall offers something for everyone, from surfing, wildlife and dramatic scenery to just relaxing on the beach. Closest beaches include Loe Beach in Feock, Pendower Beach at Carne, Perranporth, Porthtowan. Local water Ferry- A great way to explore the local area. The views as you travel up river are unspoiled and ,quite literally, breathtaking. Head up to Falmouth for a trip to a museum, St Mawes for something a bite to eat, or Trellisick gardens for a walk around the National Trust managed estate. Gardens- Plenty to enjoy! Gardens of note that are open year-round located within easy reach of the cottages are Trelissick, Trebah, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lamorran House Gardens, Bosvigo, Probus Gardens, and the Eden Project. Food & Drink- Here are a few pubs to visit. The Heron (our local). The Pandora (crabbing!). The Wheel (great food & walkable just!!)
