If you are looking for a real get-away, look no further. Large DOUBLE EN-SUITE ROOM in very quiet former farmhouse (No TV), just a short walk from the beautiful Hemmick Beach. Enjoy clear night skies, lovely sunsets, yummy vegan breakfasts... Yippee!
We have a bright & airy DOUBLE EN-SUITE ROOM with large powerful shower in a quiet coastal hamlet.
Our guests have said that our home is "charming & quirky" & we're happy with that... We see our home as a retreat - it is a place to totally unwind, relax, be pampered & immerse yourself in nature. Although we do have WIFI, we would hope that guests will come to enjoy the peace & beauty of our local environment & take time out just to be.
We have several beautiful sandy beaches nearby, the nearest one being Hemmick which is just a 15 minute walk down our lane, plus either side of Hemmick are another 2 beaches - Vault & Porthluney. All the beaches are great for swimming & we can provide beach towels for £1 each to save packing your own!
The South West Coast Path is only a 10 minute walk away & the views are spectacular... Dolphins, seals & basking sharks have been spotted off the coast regularly & we feel incredibly privileged to have seen them ourselves!
Out of season, the area is wonderfully quiet & there's nothing nicer than spending the day exploring the local coastline, then returning to curl up in front of the open fire, with one of our many books.
Included in your stay is bed linen, towels, WIFI throughout the house, a kettle with complimentary herbal teas in the bedroom & private parking.
Our wholesome vegan breakfasts with either cereal or porridge & bread/toast with preserves, choice of teas & ground coffee are also included.
We are happy to occasionally provide evening meals for guests - we charge £5 for a main course & £3 for dessert per person & it's all freshly made & organic.
We do need prior warning for all meals - so please ask when booking. Thank you!
We use natural, vegan cleaning products (Bio D & Ecoleaf) & there is always vegan soap & shampoo available for guest use.
We are keen recyclers & composters, so appreciate guests who feel the same way. We also like to conserve energy & water. We have dual flush toilets & LED low energy lighting. Due to our rural location, our home has a septic tank/soak-away system - which means we are very particular about what goes down the drains. Our toilet tissue is biodegradable & we would prefer guests to use natural toiletries & if unsure, please use the toiletries provided.
Smoking is not allowed
Pets are not allowed
** PLEASE NOTE **
1) OWN TRANSPORT IS RECOMMENDED - There is a bus stop 1 mile away & a community bus which operates most days for local excursions.
2) WE DO NOT HAVE A TV.
3) WE ARE A VEGAN HOUSEHOLD - We do not consume any meat, poultry, fish, crustacea, honey, milk, cheese or eggs. We ask guests to not consume any of these also while in the house.
Please bear in mind that Meadowcroft is in a small hamlet & although our postcode is St Austell (our nearest town), it is actually 12 miles away on a minor road. Meadowcroft is a few miles drive from any main road & the lanes are quite narrow & winding. This can make for a long journey, particularly in the busy summer months... We are not centrally located in Cornwall, but there are so many wonderful places to visit within easy reach, our favourite being the beautiful unspoilt creeks of the Roseland Peninsula.
Thank you & look forward to hearing from you.

About Your Host
Vegan, former home educating (unschooling) parents of 3 wonderful adult children & 2 cats. We are originally from the North-West/Midlands, but grabbed hold of an exciting opportunity which brought us to Cornwall in 2002 & we have never looked back! We now live in a stunning area of the Cornish coast, where we can usually be found cooking or eating & when we're not doing either of these - we'll be talking about food! We love sharing our home with guests, particularly like-minded folks looking for somewhere a bit different. In return, we offer some TLC, good wholesome food & space to breathe. We are always full of enthusiasm about our local area & can offer advice on places to swim, walk, picnic, see live music, films, books to read because these are all things we love ourselves as well as blogging (Just Humans Being) & road tripping! We have our own green housekeeping business & are members of our local Transition Group. Simon plays bass with Cornish Indie band, The Dolphins Fly & Kay has an interest in vegan nutritional therapy & holistic diagnosis.
