- The Property
Carrek Cottage is conveniently positioned along the main beach road in the heart of Trevone. It has an attractive Cornish stone frontage with a beautiful Wisteria tree that in summer covers one side of the house with pretty green foliage and purple blossom. It can sleep 5 in two bedrooms and is perfect for couples or young families. The attractive split level garden at the back is well planted and has a paved seating area ideal for barbecues or sunny breakfasts. The 2 bedrooms benefit from distant sea views, while the downstairs living areas are simple and cosy. Carrek Cottage provides a pleasant, convenient spot to relax and explore the surrounding coastline or the plethora of nearby restaurants and shops in Padstow.
There are two bedrooms, both are on the first floor and feature distant views of the sea. The first bedroom which is on the left as you reach the top of the stairs is a double (4ft 6in) with attractive wooden wardrobe, period chest of drawers and bedside tables - it has windows front and back so benefits from good natural light. The second is just across the corridor with a full length bunk bed and single bed again with windows front to back. In this second bedroom there is also a chest of drawers and wardrobe.
There is one bathroom at Carrek Cottage and one cloakroom. The downstairs cloakroom is opposite the kitchen towards the back of the house, this room doubles as a utility with loo, Belfast sink and wooden draining board. The iron and ironing board are also here alongside the washer dryer and counter top freezer. The bathroom can be found on the first floor, sitting conveniently between the two bedrooms with loo, basin and bath with contemporary stainless steel shower over. Both are simply tiled with modern fixtures and fittings.
- Kitchen and Dining
The kitchen is at the back of the house with a large window that looks out over the attractive well cared for back garden. Fitted with L shaped modern kitchen units it provides a straight forward practical space to cook in and is conveniently positioned within easy reach of the dining room. The dining room is centred around the table which can easily seat 6 it has one window overlooking the front of the house, below the window is a cosy window seat. A large dark wood sideboard, floor lamp and fireplace finish off this simple traditional space.
- Sitting room
The sitting room is a cosy beamed private space with easy access to the back garden through the back door. It features two tub chairs and a two seater sofa to relax on. A peaceful room to escape to and watch a film or to warm up in front of the wood burner in colder months. It is also thoughtfully decorated with interesting artwork linked to the surrounding area.
There is a utility/cloakroom room off the kitchen at the back of the house. This features a washer dryer and counter top freezer. The TV in the sitting room has a DVD player. There is parking behind the garage opposite the house. Wireless broadband and central heating throughout with a wood burning stove in the sitting room.
Carrek Cottage features well planted gardens with mature rose bushes and fruit trees. There is a well manicured lawn with patio and outdoor table and chairs. A bench at the top of the garden provides a tranquil spot to sit and bask in the sun. There is also a hard surfaced area directly in front of the house with steps down from the road level, the outdoor shower is housed here in a small lean-to at the side of the house - a great addition for showering straight off the beach.
Carrek Cottage is located in the heart of Trevone. You can quickly walk or drive down to the main sandy beach, or the rather wonderful Newtrain beach, with its rock pools and natural swimming pool. Or go on round to the lovely sandy bays in either direction - maybe you may find some cowries here.
The beach shop is well equipped with surf and wetsuit rental and perfect for a morning coffee while you read the papers. There is cafe eating at lunchtime or supper in season all out on the great terrace behind the beach - all with an easy walk home. Closer still to the house is the Trevone farmshop (good for papers and bread, and all sorts of essentials), and the Well Parc pub - a nice place for a drink or game of pool, with a fantastic view over the beaches. The Padstow Farmshop is also only a few minutes drive away - with full butchers shop and the freshest local vegetables.
Padstow is only 5 minutes drive away, with shopping, boat trips and superb eateries. Rick Stein's restaurants are always worth booking, while Jamie Oliver is only 15 minutes drive to Watergate Bay. For the more adventurous Padstow can also be accessed via a stunning 6 mile stretch of the coastal path, or a shorter 1.5 mile walk across fields on the public footpath. The airport at Newquay is a 15 minute drive. Walking is also wonderful in either direction along the coast path.

A wonderful cottage, very comfortable and so convenient for the lovely beach. Farm shop over the road was really useful too, didn;t need to drive the car anywhere after our arrival. Mixed weather, but some good surfing and sunshine. The garden is a lovely suntrap and place to eat. Excellent shower. Would love to return

Second visit to Carrek Cottage and still very enjoyable. We have been lucky with the weather- sunny enough to go on Trevone Beach
Stayed: 31st Aug 2018
We had a lovely 2 week holiday, enjoyed the outdoor garden space and log fire although implements for this could be beneficial. The weather has been very kind to us which has made our stay in Trevone perfect. Highlights were walks photographing on Rocky beach (Trevone Bay), Watergate Bay Hotel at the living space does beautiful as does Bedruthan Hotel, especially on Sunday at lunch and Trevone Cafe is a must for an evening meal.

We love Cornwall and come to this coast every year. We have stayed in Treyarnon, Padstow and Trevone. It is a perfect traditional Cornish Cottage exactly what we expected, even better, the weather has been amazing. We love cornwall and are looking to move here in the next couple of years. Thank you we had such a lovely stay, felt like home from home, and we will absolutely be back next year.

Thank you, we had a lovely stay at carrek cottage (named carrot cottage by my 3 year old!).
The cottage was lovely, perhaps not the most child friendly of the cottages we could have picked, but was in a great location and the beds were very comfy.
Thank you also to the team for the quick response in getting a travel cot to us when we arrived.
Stayed: 17th Nov 2016
Thank you once again, we had a great time there and would love to return next year.
