Parent-pleasing breaks

Spoiler alert! This is all about you. About doing things for yourself and not feeling guilty. Because let’s face it, much as you love it, keeping children happy can be downright hard work.

Ready to de-frazzle? Head to our hot tub garden and soak in the blissful warm bubbles or hang out in the glass pod with a longed-to-read book. Bask on a sun lounger in your cottage garden or pop down to New You Beauty for a treatment or massage.  Or order a seasonal flowers bouquet or delicious local goodies for your cottage.

Fresh bread at the door

We’re so lucky to have lovely local bakers that can deliver the freshest bread to your Tredethick cottage doorstep. In fact Baker Tom makes his deliveries on Friday so you can have fresh granary, sourdough and wholemeal loaves, as well as cinnamon and saffron buns waiting for you when you arrive.

Flowers to greet you

To make your cottage extra welcoming, why not order Fawen flowers for your table.  Grown just two miles from us, using Tredethick compost, Fawen can deliver the most beautiful farm flower bouquets on Fridays between April and October, so your cottage has a little touch of luxury when you walk through the front door.

Enjoy a seafood feast

What better way to treat mum and dad than with great feed when the kids are in bed? And there’s no better place on earth to get stuck into the freshest seafood than Cornwall! Beautiful shellfish, landed in the nearby fishing town of Fowey, can be delivered to your cottage.

Try wild swimming

Cornwall is the place to try wild swimming for the first time or head for a dunk if you’re well practiced.  There are some beautiful sandy shelving beaches and secluded rocky coves nearby or ask us for some of our favourite secret spots.
