Our guests love the idyllic fishing villages dotted around the Roseland Pennisula (just 6 miles away), particularly magical St Mawes. A boat trip across the bay to the historic port of Falmouth is a must-do; then there's the cathedral city of Truro with farmer's market, theatre, eclectic shopping and so much more. Back home at the cottage, fresh coastal decor provides you with the perfect place to unwind. Perhaps a leisurely cream tea in the conservatory, or relax in the pretty sun-trap garden whilst the church bells drift over. A gentle stroll across the village square will reward you with Aga-baked cakes in the cafe/gallery, fresh bread & home-made Cornish pasties in the farm shop; there's Cornish ale & scrummy home-made food in the local inn too. Waterlily Holiday Cottage offers you peace and quiet, friendly Cornish village life, and beautifully presented accommodation. We hope to welcome you soon x. >>>>>>>>>>> Eating out in Probus village: * The Hawkins Arms pub: great food & child-friendly with large garden; * Trudgian Cornish farm shop: oodles of local produce & delicious pasties; * Time Café: bistro/gallery for cream teas & 'picnics to go' for your days out; * Probus fish n chips. >>>>>>>>>>> Probus village amenities include:* A beautiful 15th Century church with regular services. * Half-hour bus services (inc. evenings) to Truro, & National-Express coach with services to London.* A convenience store, antiques emporium, post-office; fuel garage, & children's playground. >>>>>>>>>>> Around the area: * Rocky coves and sandy beaches e.g. Porthpean, Pentewan, Pendower, Port Holland & Portloe. * Enchanting old Cornish harbours of Mevagissey or Charlestown.* Easy drive to 8 of the 'Great Gardens of Cornwall' (Trewithen garden is 1.5 miles away).* National Trust estates include Trelissick, Trerice & Glendurgan. * Golf courses around Truro (a choice of two).* Horse riding on Perranporth beach (stables welcome children). * Children can explore underground tin mine tours, a Go-Kart track, or 2 theme parks within easy drive. * The off-road Pentewan coastal cycle trail to Mevagissey (bike hire available). * Walk the South West Coast Path e.g. the Dodman trail to the highest headland in South Cornwall. * Surf and watersports (and equipment hire) can be found in Newquay or Perranporth. >>>>>>>>>>> For more information on cottage facilities, including a range of baby equipment, also guests with restricted mobility/elderly google 'Waterlily Holiday Cottage, Probus' to find our web site and see our video.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is situated in the South of Cornwall. This green and peaceful landscape is fed by rivers from the high moorlands of Bodmin, characterised by leafy estuaries, fishing villages, beaches, harbours and beautiful gardens that flourish in South Cornwall's mild climate.
