Meadow House is located high on a ridge on St Anthony Headland and is part of the Place Estate. This is the perfect place to escape from reality there are few better places to enjoy the true beauty of the idyllic Roseland Peninsula. Surrounded by rolling rural landscapes, stunning walks with the best views of St Mawes, Place House, Pendennis Castle, Falmouth and the Carrick Roads. Explore St Anthony Head and the Lighthouse, famously used as the base for the TV series Fraggle Rock and also Molunan Beaches which are right by the lighthouse. As a bonus, you can take the car down a private lane to within a couple of hundred yards of the beach, closer if you bring a 4x4, and are confident of its off-roading capability. Towan Beach is also close by and is also dog friendly and family safe.
Meadow House does offer the perfect escape from urban living with a recently fitted kitchen diner with all mod cons, utility/boot room, large living room with a cosy wood burning stove. A south-facing conservatory with a Rattan corner sofa and table provides the perfect quiet spot for an afternoon with a book. The garden has a fuschia hedge separating it from the surrounding field and is secure with plenty of space and there is an adjoining area, including goal post for letting children run off some steam. Upstairs is a master bedroom with en-suite, and two further, good sized bedrooms with a family bathroom. Everything about this wonderful house is accentuated by the mantra "location, location, location". There is so much glorious countryside to explore, including beaches, creeks, lighthouses and castles, your family will love their stay, and your family pets will have the best holiday ever!

Great house and location for exploring St Antonys head and nearby beaches.
Comfortable beds and plenty of living space. We had a great week and were lucky with the weather too!
Wonderful views, easy walks to beaches, great comfort / facilities and amazing host. A great family holiday house
Beautiful location.Very private. The things we loved the most was the enclosed garden that was dog proof. Our Border Terrier is an escape artist.....we were able to relax knowing he was safe within the grounds of the house.Also, should he bark no one was near enough to be disturbed(we hope!)
The oil central heating was very efficient and great to wake up to a warm cosy house on a chilly May morning. There was a beautiful new log burner, already prepared with a supply of extra logs, but we never used this as the heating was enough.
The owner Nicki introduced herself and asked if we needed anything, very friendly but never intrusive.
Will definitely return for a another bolt hole....get away from the rat race break. Being so close to the coastal path with breathtaking views is just wonderful.
We had a wonderfully relaxing spring break, which Cornwall Cottages managed to organize absolutely last minute. We felt very well taken care if, an loved the location, spaciousness of the house and comfortable set up. We especially lived the well working firwplace, and Highly recommended!
Meadow House is a beautiful house in a wonderful location. The only negative we had was the cleanliness of the crockery and glassware in the cupboards. Almost everything had to be washed before use and some of the pans were unusable even then. Despite this I would still say that it was a very enjoyable stay and would definitely stay again.
