It's a light and airy space of your own in an unrivalled location on the North Cornish coast, which provides relaxation from the very start of your holiday. Nearby, you'll find quaint Cornish pubs, like The Falcon and The Cornish Arms (run by Rick Stein). As well as fine dining at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen at Watergate Bay and Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant in Padstow. Padstow is in fact just five miles away and has pubs, shops, restaurants and its beautiful bay and estuary. Hiring bikes to cycle The Camel Estuary is well worth doing. Just across the road from Skiber An Hyli is a dramatic headland walk, with a secluded beach called Diggory. The nearest beach is Pothcothan, 1 mile away, which is ideal for families with its sandy stretch to the sea. Very sorry but no smokers and no pets. Currently no wifi.More

Lovely cottage, well equipped and nicely decorated. Owners of the farmhouse were very welcoming and helpful. About a mile walk to Porthcothan beach, or Bedruthan Steps, and a 5 minute drive to Mawgan Porth. 20 minutes to either Padstow or Newquay, depending on traffic.

Thank you for your comments, regret the mobile signal is poor as it is in many parts of Cornwall. The road is busier in the high season but thankfully quiet for the rest of the year.

About the neighbourhood
Surrounding Skiber An Hyli is an area with a wealth of things to see, do and experience. Rick Stein's famous Seafood Restaurant at Padstow is only 5 miles away. Also at Padstow is an array of pasty and fish & chip shops, a beautiful estuary with sandy beach, a quaint working harbour, and The Camel Trail. You can also take the ferry over the estuary to the lovely village of Rock. In the other direction from Skiber An Hyli is Newquay, a vibrant town, for fans of surfing with the magnificent Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach. Families or sun-worshippers will love the long golden beaches. Jamie Oliver's Fifteen is a wonderful beachside restaurant not far from the house.
