Post Box Cottage Description

An 18th century terraced cottage in the ancient village of St Ewe, 6 miles to St Austell and under 3 miles to Mevagissey, South Cornwall. Beaches at Pentewan Sands are 3 miles. Post Box Cottage is an attractive character cottage which has been tastefully modernised, retaining features such as exposed beams and original feature fireplace with bread oven. The small red post box set in the cottages wall gives the cottage its name. There is a good size enclosed rear garden with a lower and upper lawn and seating. St Ewe is a traditional, tiny, rural and unspoilt Cornish village. The villages old church dates from Norman times and the village pub, the Crown Inn (a welcoming pub with an open fire, parrot, bar with modestly priced bar food, good size restaurant) is just a few minutes stroll from the cottage. There are footpaths & pleasant walks leading from the village. The Lost Gardens of Heligan approx 1 mile and the Eden Project 11 miles. A great favourite with those staying at the cottage and great fun, is the bath in the double bedroom, concealed behind louvre doors in what at first glance appears to be part of the fitted cupboards.
